Great food! – I've been to Grazie's countless times, and have never been disappointed! Their Alfredo sauce is one of the best I?ve had. According to my parents, their coconut prawns are THE best. Parmesan risotto is to die for, it?s very rich and creamy! The risotto comes with certain menu items, but I?ve ordered it alone as a side dish. My favorite dish is ?Cassie?s pesto supremo,? it has artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts and feta cheese? oh my mouth is watering! I saw someone comment on the flan, only it?s not called flan, it?s called creme caramel. I?m no creme caramel connoisseur, but it was yummy, just like everything else I?ve tried there. If you go during peak times, especially on weekends call ahead for a reservation!
Good food but nothing special – Our overall experience with Grazie Ristorante was average. While the food was good and the service was adequate, we felt the atmosphere lacked given the prices being charged. First, the place needs a bit of updating. This restaurant has been here several years and the ceiling tiles show their age. The decor is older and is bland...a realitively open room with booths and tables. When charging about $30 for a steak dinner with salad, you expect a few finishing touches. The only linen in the place were the napkins. In addition to charging extra for the salad, the main course (in this case a steak dinner) didn't even come with vegetables. What did that save them...50 cents? Overall, I give the place a "C". The good food didn't make up for the price or atmosphere. There won't be a next time here for me and I won't be recommending it.
Beautiful restaurant, nice service, great authentic food, prices too! – I have been doing mostly take out at this restaurant. I have ordered several dishes to go and each time it was prepared perfectly! Never missing a thing! The best part is the olive oil and garlic/italian herb dip with homemade bread!! I could literally drink this it is so fabulous.
There is a comment posted about FOOD POISENING??? this has to be a competitor worried about business; the food at Grazie is so fresh, the restaurant clean; you can see the cooks cooking and their environment is spottless. Don't believe a word of that review!!!
I have been eating here for over 5years and it has only gotten BETTER!!! The Staff goes to Italy every year for special training. This is a wonderful restaurant catering only the best in Italian!!! (Plus the management does care, if you have a concern call them) Don't miss out on a Great experience!!!
Got food poisoning – Went for dinner and ended up with food poisoning that lasted for days. Had a fever of 103 F. When I contacted the manager she was asking what she wanted me to do. Then reasoned that they went through the dish I ordered quickly. The food poisoning could have been caused by mishandling of food or poor hygiene of the cook. Poor and unprofessional response to an important health concern. I would never return.
Italian and All That Jazz – We've been meaning to try this place, just never got around to it. Now we will make up for lost time and opportunities. The promising aromas as we entered were inviting, the meals delicious, the service friendly and efficient. Service was never hurried, still prompt. Unique combinations and flavors made this a great "find" for us. We havn't been there for a weekend jazz performance yet. From friends who have, I expect it will be as enjoyable as the restaurant itself.
Just a wonderful place to dine – We frequent this restayrant about once a month. The food is excellent and pleasently prepared. I too have found the service to need a bit of improvement at times, but never to the point of concern. We have our favorite service people there and they never fail to come to our table and exchange a few words with us each time we visit. This is not high end stuff here, it's just a very nice place to go with excellent food. I love dining late and having the jazz come out from the lounge.
great! – I love eating and doing take out from this restaurant. The environment is clean, beautiful and the service is GREAT! Oh and of course the food is one of the best in the area! They travel to Italy every year and learn more secrets in the art of cooking Italian and it shows.... If you don't have time to cook or need food to go for a special event they always get it right!
Live Jazz – We got Grazie quiet often, live jazz on weekend . The staff goes to Italy every other year, they are always ready to recommend wine from there latest trip. I usually order lamb chops, never been disappointed. I also recommend finishing dinner with one of there home made deserts(choc suicide) with an espresso(owner roasts the coffee)
sloppy cooking – I have eaten at the bothell location twice lately.
First time the soup was excellent and also rice. Too much lemon and overcooked shrimp.
Pasta dish had poor flavor.
Went with my aunt, she thought it was just ok
The next time went with my husband, he said he would not go there again.
Everything was below average, bitter strong tasting marsala, steak not cooked to order. Lasagne very poor.
Flan is worst I have ever had.
bravo – good food, service can be iffy - dependent completely on wait person. Specials are usually woth trying - in the summer try the gorgonzola spinach salad..... For pasta, their pesto is marvelous and the grilled chicken panini is great.
