Since the last time we visited Gracies Bistro a few hings have changed.
First the service has improved immesurably. Our server Ian was not only professional, but suggested a wine in the $40 range that was both interesting and remarkably good. Service was timely with all courses arriving promply once the previous course was finished.
The wine selection has gone from quite bad to remarkably good, with some interesting wines and a wide range of prices.
The food is still good but not great. However, I was surprised by the small number of tables filled on a weekend night. There were quite a few couples and singles at the bar, and there were a few tables filled on the patio but other than that the restaurant was about 2/3 filled in the heart of a Saturday night.
On the food:
Ribeye good, not great (@$35 a la carte)and a bit overcooked. For the price I expect more.
Wifes chicken and crab dish was good but not great.
The prices are high, the salads are a bit skimpy, but good.
This is a good restaurant. I will return, the food, while beautifully plated, still has quality improvements to make at this price level.
Our server was excellent, (Ian), I would ask for him by name.
Overall, well, it is time to try Gracies again. It is a solid #2 behind Dusty's in this area, with a great casual Bistro atmosphere. They have made a lot of progress under the new manager and I expect it will continue to improve.
