“Chef Maurice has got it going on...”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

From salad to dessert, this meal rocked. The waiter perfectly paired a pinot grigio with my pest encrusted mahi mahi. Yum. Great atmosphere, wonderful service. This is the kind of place you want to eat at three times a week. A warm welcome, a great location, and a kitchen that is putting out some serious grub! Based on the hazelnut cream filled canoli, the pastry chef is no slouch either. Maurice has got skills. I'd say his table side manner could be favorably compared with Marcus Welby, MD's bedside manner. You've just gotta try this place, you'll be back, again and aagain.

“Wonderful Romantic Oasis”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

In the midst of so many chains and fad food restaurants with high decibel levels, we are grateful to find Grappa as a quiet romantic spot on the river in Golden. We have dined at Grappa several times and have always been impressed with the excellent service, varied and tasty cuisine, moderate prices, and wonderful ambiance. Imagine our surprise when this last Saturday night there was a magnificent piano player playing beautiful classic serenades as well as requests from the guests! The evening made for a wonderful 'date night' for us and we will continue to spread the word on this great find! P.S. Their porch alongside the river in summer is truly a mini-vacation spot.

“Good menu selection and good food”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

I have had dinner here a few times and my office has had a holiday lunch here also. Food is excellent. Service is good. Lots of choices for both lunch and dinner. The owners are very friendly and make sure you are treated well. Traditional fare, good list of wines by the glass.

“Fantastic Lunch”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I was in Golden for a meeting and had time to grab lunch. Grappa has two different restaurants - one is more of a deli while the other is Mediterranean. I ate at the Mediterranean restaurant. It was a beautiful day so I sat outdoors on the deck. The view was beautiful. The deck offers seating with or without cover - it was cool but there were no clouds so I took the open option. I had the seafood pasta - mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp and fish over linguine. FANTASTIC!! The price was also extremely reasonable. The dish was $12. There were a variety of options with the most expensive being $14. A great value for an exceptional relaxing lunch with a view! Oh - and the service was fantastic - can't forget that part as service can make or break a meal !!
