    Always a great time at Gravy. The hostess was both welcoming and accommodating. Our server, Reina, was timely and kind. The goat cheese and tomato ravioli is a must order; same goes for the tagliatelle bolognese. Excited to visit again!

    We were not impressed at Gravy. The quality of the food match the service - poor. The pasta sauces were way too watery, salmon overcooked until it was bone-dry, and our espressos were actually mini cups of bad coffee. We would have told our server, but she rarely returned to see how we were doing. We will not be returning.

    It was very hit or miss. Some food was great, the rest was utterly subpar. Not worth the high prices, but not terrible. I'd consider trying other Italian restaurants before returning. Service was fine and this could be a good date night if the food was better!

    With Vic’s And café Luna so close by this would not be my first choice for Italian food in the area. The spaghetti pasta is homemade, however too thick for my preference. The chicken Parmesan cutlet was very thick, too thick for my preference. However, everything was tasty. Our table ordered the risotto, balls and calamari, both were delicious. Service was a little slow for a Sunday night with longer than desired waits from server. The restaurant did have a good vibe. Would we come back again? Yes, but it would not be my first choice.

    We had a reservation for sunday at 345pm. We got there early and were seated no problem. the restaurant wasn't crowded but we were told that there events in the courtyard. we waited long enough for the initial contact by the waiter to figure out drinks, apps and main courses. After our drinks were brought out they were constantly left unfilled. Our appetizers came out with a slight delay but our meals were very delayed. they were prepared correctly so is a plus. As we were done eating and basically waiting on the check to brought, our waiter comes over and brings us some cold garlic bites and says he should've brought these out sooner. I have dined at this restaurant multiple times so i know how good the service can be. this was disappointing. I hate to ding the restaurant but we were a small party of four eating during a non-crowded time and still were there for an extended period. i would still suggest people give it a try as we may have just caught the servers on an off night or understaffed due to events.

    Very disappointing when the pasta at an Italian restaurant is clumpy and barely warm. Waitstaff was friendly and the price wasn't bad, but there are better options in the area. Where they can cook pasta correctly.

    Hi Anonymous, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that the service you had was wonderful, but are saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your meal. We pride ourselves in the food we put out for our guests and this is certainly not the expectations we hold ourselves to. We would love to hear more about the dishes so that we know what areas to focus on. Thank you for your time and we hope you will try us again in the future!
