Great service and great value
We were there over a year ago and the soup was just warm and the steak was gristly but decided to try again since someone recommended the pasta was good. A couple of friends had the steak and lamb shank and said it was good and the rest of us had appetizers and pasta that was also good.
Happy to say we would come back again.
Great food, consistent month to month, great service
Always a staple for my go to pasta venue. Consistent and great neighbourhood.
Amazing food, girlfriend and i really enjoyed our pasta dishes which were essentially 2 for 1
We enjoyed the breeze on the outdoor patio. There was option of sitting in sun or shade which was perfect for our opposite tastes. The food was excellent value, and the servers were very amicable. Main course took a little long, but it suited our leisurely mood. Our new favourite neighbourhood spot!
The food was very good and the husband/wife owners were friendly and efficient. My only complaint is all the stuff stored in the bar area; a messy first impression. But the food was really good.
Been there years ago and the food was so much better then.
The service was satisfactory but the food was not so good. The potato on my dish were soggy and the beans were way too old and tough to be eaten. My sister asked for sauce to be on the side for her lamb dish but it was not done. My 101 year old mother asked us not to take her back to this restaurant because in her word, "the food is no good".
Currently their menu offers a 2-for-$24 on a combination of any two pasta, noodle or risotto dishes. The food is good & the portions are generous. A good deal for this neighbourhood resto.
I was disappointed. The wine was good value, and the appetizer + mussels were decent. My main, the duck breast, seemed like it had been reheated, and the pineapple for the sauce seemed like it came out of a can.
We dined with friends for a chance to catch up and enjoy a meal together. The service was prompt, courteous and non intrusive. The food arrived quickly and great temperature. The flavours were delicious.
Food was exactly what we wanted but the night was made when the server spotted we had leftover gravy and brought us extra Yorkshire puddings for our prime rib!
Disappointing all around.
We went to Gramercy Grill for the Dine Out Vancouver event. The food was excellent and the dine out menu was great value! The presentation of the food was not as great though. The soup was presented practically spilling over the sides as if the server had a problem bringing it to the table. The scallops and steak had an excess of a watery sauce. The tarts were good but the presentation looked slapdash at best. The service was not that good. Our server probably had too many tables to take care of. There was confusion as to who ordered what. They even made a mistake and gave us the wrong bill. We were honest and pointed out the mistake but it could have been a costly error to the restaurant. We would return for the food but the service problems prevent it from being a top restaurant.
Inferior service this time. Each step of the way the waitress came back to confirm our orders. Even though she appeared to be writing down every thing, she had difficulty getting it straight.
The hostess was very nice and pleasant. Portion were large and not too salty. Flavor was mediocrely
My friends steak was overcooked & chewy. I really don't understand the awful gelatinous curry eggplant sauce on top of the steelhead trout. The trout is such a nice delicate fish .. why would you destroy it with an over-powering sauce??
Service was awful. I wasn't asked if I wanted a drink with my meal. After dinner the bill was plunked on the table without asking us if we wanted coffee or tea. Service wasn't friendly & she never smiled at us.
This is why we haven't eaten at Gramercy Grill for quite some time.
Enjoyed our first experience at Gramercy Grill! We tried the Dine Out Vancouver menu. It was very good value for the $25 price range. I had the roast pepper soup and it was excellent! The strip loin entree was also very good and grilled expertly! There was a choice of tarts for dessert. It would have been better had they been fresh and not stored in the fridge, which made the pastry soggy. We would recommend this restaurant!
Did the $25 Dine Out menu. Started with their Happy Hour at the bar then moved a few steps in to do dinner in the restaurant area, as happy hour was not permitted in the dining area during Dine Out weekends. Service and food were good, but the 3-course menu was appropriate for the price. Starter and Dessert portions were small.
The food was very good and nicely plated, especially for $25! It’s a cozy, neighbourhood bar atmosphere and yet area for dining was quiet. Our service though was very sloppy and rushed.
Seated 4 people at a table suitable for 2. Slow to take drinks order and IPA eventually served was more like a regular ale. Appetizers arrived promptly and were good. Meals arrived about half way through appetizers and barely ahead of the wine. Pork schnitzel too thick, very salty and served with salad (on the plate)?? Striploin average at best and mashed potatoes and fresh veg mushy. Seafood pasta Ok. For the price, this was decidedly underwhelming. Will not be going back.
Went for lunch.Food good ,but portions small for the price. Ordered fish & Chips.
I confirm everything I said in my previous review. It is always a pleasure to enjoy the food and the atmosphere of this place. I'll be back soon!
Good value and taste
Canadian cuisine—ok, not really much to write about, an average culinary experience. The service was very nice though. Mushroom bruschetta was very good. Steak was not high quality and cut too thin, duck breast was good, however sauce was too sweet.
We were there for a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. The salad and soup and desserts were fine. Unfortunately, our main dish was not good, with no white meat, and mainly small stringy scraps of dark meat and skin smothered with a rather unpleasant gravy. The potatoes and stuffing were covered with slop too. I think other people were more fortunate, and were served with better looking meals, so maybe we were just unlucky. Our server was pleasant, but overall, not a good experience.
This restaurant is an authentic gem. Far from the fancy and pompous service you would get in a typical steak-house in downtown, here you will find a friendly and authentic environment. The food is delicious. We had one of the best tenderloin steak ever, it melted in our mouth. We also ordered the 4-courses meal, which is amazing value and gives a large choice among the items of the a-la-carte menu. If you live in the area, there is no need to go downtown for an upscale quality dinner. If you don't, you may want to consider discovering this fantastic place.
Food was well prepared and very tasty
Food was delicious. Outstanding 4 course meal for under $40 on Fridays/Saturdays. Also have prime rib on Sundays which we definitely will go back to try. Wonderful service and great ambiance. Overall great evening. Already planning next visit.
I was disappointed in Gramercy Grill on this occasion. Have you eaten there many times before and been very happy with the food but I was disappointed this time. The salmon and accompanying vegetables were overly buttered however the accompanying Salsa was excellent. The service was quite unfriendly which we weren’t used to at Gramercy. After having paid my bill I was told that they forgotten to put the Tea on the bill and wanted me to tear up my visa slip and start again. I was quite surprised that they couldn’t comped something that was worth probably about $.50 when I paid $30 for my meal. It makes me think about whether not I want to go back.
This is a good neighbourhood restaurant and we will be back. However four of us had pasta dishes and three of these would have been improved with more attention given to the sauces to provide a creamier or moister dish. Location is great. Strive for excellence folks!
Went there with our book club for a get together. Service was excellent and the food was good. Would definitely go back
Everything was wonderful, but we were dismayed that we were not allowed to use our entertainment coupon, despite the fact that we each had full dinners (eg, pasta and meatballs, hamburger, seafood), because they are not labelled as entrees. It is stingy and misleading. Disappointment in an otherwise restaurant favorite
Menu choice was a bit disappointing. The featured seafood dish of the evening was Atlantic salmon. This does not appeal to me as I prefer wild salmon as opposed to farmed. I had the duck breast which was a bit chewy. The flavour was nice though. My grandson had mussels. They were the tiniest I had ever seen. His fries didn’t taste freshly made. They could have been reheated. My daughter in law and son had the beef with mashed potatoes and were happy with that. The wait staff are very nice and this restaurant is close to home so I will likely go back. I think it’s a better choice for lunch than dinner. Perhaps they’ll upgrade the quality of the food.
Expensive , poor service long wait times for food to come and quality of food was extremely average
It was our first time to the restaurant. The service was excellent.
The atmosphere was nice and quiet since the place wasn't crowded at all for a Saturday night.
My husband's soup wasn't nearly hot and our steaks had too much gristle in it.
With our friends, we also shared an order of mussels and fries to start off our meals. The mussels were good but after the first few fries we found the fries were a bit too salty for our taste. Our friends had the lamb shank and tenderloin steaks which they enjoyed.
We made last minute reservations and the hostess was gracious to seat us at table with window view. This intimate neighbourhood hang-out offers 4 course menu for $40 but did not try on this occasion. The salmon with tapenade and prawns was generous and filled the bill for seafood. Definite a throw-back to food scene when sides/ vegetables are not extras. The pork schitznel (2) was also very good. Worth another visit when the weather warms up to check out the patio.
Quite local play. Older crowd. Two waitresses only, also working the bar so things took a while. Not a place to take a date. Out of a lot of the mains. Weekday regular meal place. Food ok meatballs good duck so-so.
