First class setting revealed friendly and excellent service...Sadly the food was average at best...Lobster bisque was flat; calves liver was a poor cut, and my request for rare was well done...My wife's tomato/mozzarella appetizer and pasta entrée were average...

My wife and I had a very nice lunch on a sunny day. We had a table on the terrasse that is shaded by some nice vegetation that provides some freshness. Light lunch with salad and club sandwich. Tasty and kind service. Only concern is that there was no beer on the draft but we were said it was going... More

We reserved a table for four for dinner on Saturday night. We elected to sit outside since the weather was warm and nice. Overall, it was very pleasant experience as you would expect from a place with a reputation for quality dining and elegance. We arrived at 7 PM, on time, and our table was ready for us. It wasn't...

i have been here several times, most recently in May 2016, love warm the Irish welcome and great French influenced food. the creme brulée is pretty decent too, and i've had many of those over the years.

From the minute you walk into the restaurant you feel special. I was at The Grand Cafe with two other family members. We ordered drinks, and a appetizer to share, a wonderful salad with goat cheese. We ordered Chicken dinners, each of the dishes were prepared perfectly. We asked that the seasonings on one of the Chicken dishes be light,... More

For my wife's milestone birthday, rather than "things," I wanted her to have a memorable experience; so we had a party for about 30 of her best friends at this wonderful venue. The food was outstanding; our guests were offered a wide variety of dishes including many which accommodated the special dietary requests of several attendees; the service was excellent,... More

We live in the area and decided to try this restaurant, and it was a wonderful experience. The owner was there and made the effort to introduce himself, which made the evening special. We enjoyed it so much we came back at another time for drinks and dessert. Their menu will not disappoint and their desserts are wonderful. The staff... More

Lived in the area for years and heard very little of this restaurant until recently. The location, though convenient, is off the beaten path by a few blocks. From the outside, it appears very average. ...But when you walk in you get a warm, velvety feeling of "grand." The restaurant is two floors with a large fireplace on each floor.... More

Went for a business diner with 30 people. Started with appetizers which were all fantastic. The shrimps were large and fresh and tasted great. The salmon on the crackers was so so good. I cannot remember all that we had but I do remember that they were all so so good. The meal did not disappoint other than the fact... More

Staff is friendly and helpful. The Bronzini, chicken francesse, and 3 mushroom ravioli are excellent.
