The waiter tried his best to accommodate our needs. The food was not up to par for Gratzi ‘s reputation. I’m not sure I would return again to spend that amount of money.

We had an amazing dinner at Gratzi. Our waitress, Dena, was one of the best servers we have ever had a pleasure of having. She was very friendly and very attentive, truly hoping we will be able to dine with her again. We couldn't of had a better time and have absolutely no complaints. The food was also heavenly. Highly recommend eating here!

Despite making reservations and a special request for a table for my wife's birthday celebration three weeks ahead of the occasion (and confirming twice with Main Street Ventures because they kept calling to confirm), we were led to a table near the kitchen. After reminding the staff that we had requested a special table near the window on the second floor, we were told that such requests cannot be granted. It would have been nice to have been informed of such rules either during the initial reservation or the two confirmation calls. Clearly they wanted to get us to the restaurant before they were going to tell us our request could not be granted.

The outside eating is a fantastic Ann Arbor experience- one of the best locations on Main Street in the city for people watching!

It was awesome as usual. My favorite dish is the linguine del golfo which was not on the menu, so hopefully they will bring that back, but the spaghetti and meatball was great and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the Fileto di manzo.

We recently dined at Gratzi before going to The Ark for a performance. We all enjoyed our food very much and the service was very good. We had the option of dining al fresco or indoors and initially chose the former but decided that it was too windy so we moved inside. The staff were very accommodating when we moved. We were served in a timely manner. This restaurant is more for special occasions than everyday dining in my opinion.

First time visiting Gratzi's and made the drive up for a birthday dinner from Toledo. It was definitely worth it and we will be back. Delicious food options and tried many items on the menu between 4 different entrees ordered and multiple appetizers. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive...again, will be back and definitely recommend.

Had horrible fruit flys buzzing us the whole dinner. For such a high priced place would have expected them to shut down until they could address the pest issues rather then subject their customers to that.

Overall: mixed. The Farm to Table menu very much touted by the waiter and the Maitre D' was just that: mixed. The appetizer was rather small but very tasty. The pork tenderloin entree was substantial but salty, overcooked and therefore dry.
The sea bass was good but was served oddly with a kind of tomato sauce that didn't seem to go well with it. The brussel sprout shavings were sparse.
On the other hand the braised short ribs were excellent.
Another disappointment was the Tiramisu: bland, somewhat pasty and not a hint of Amaretto.

We had a group dinner or 9 people, so a lot of different dishes were ordered and consumed. As usual, the list of food options was terrific, and the individual dishes were excellent. The salads are among the best in any restaurant. The pasta dishes are imaginative and well prepared. I have been eating at Gratzi since it opened, and I can honestly say that I have never had a bad or even mediocre meal there, just really good Italian food.

Consensus was the food was not up to your typical standards. Food was too salty. Tuna was not cooked correctly. We asked for and were assured that we could have table in south east corner at front of restaurant. This request obviously was not communicated to the restaurant. Just before we arrived, someone sat down at that table.

First time this year sitting outside in downtown A2. As usual, the street noise is sometimes unbearable (motorcycles, etc.) after 5:00, but Gratzi is Gratzi. Have to go whenever someone is visiting. Little disappointed in the waiter who was sooo attentive and then just disappeared near the end when we wanted the check. Someone else had to help us. Still love the risotto and specialty small pizzas.

Waited 10 to 12 minutes for a server. Restaurant was almost empty. Another server brought us water in a blue bottle. Basically warm tap water. Server kept repeating 'of course' after every request. Salads were marginal. Meat in the bolognese was dry and weird. Nothing memorable about this place other than the overly pretentious server with his constant 'of course'. Only plus side was the 50% off the bill as it was a birthday. Probably won't go back, if course.

Usually Graz he is is one of my favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor. However, the other night I was extremely disappointed in the service and the food. I had ordered their onion soup and when the server brought it to the table, he managed to spill soup down the sleeve of my blouse and on my coat.

Very turned off by greeting or lack of by hostess, Allison.
We announced our arrival & reservation request for a window table.
Reply was that a lot of people want the same. I commented that it should be first come first serve.
Response was to be ignored!!
We stood & waited about 10 minutes before being acknowledged by a different person.
When we asked our waiter the name of the hostess & expressed or concern, he commented that we were not the first to complain about her. In fact, she was leaving in a few days.
Note to Gratzi’s: interview a hostess without an attitude.
Get someone with a smile & welcoming attitude like the hostess @ The Chophouse @ same time period.

Service was great. Had to send back my tuna as it was cold. The manager and the severer handled it gracefully and all ended up being good. Reason for 3 stars for food specially was because the dishes are good but not great.
