Gramercy Grill Ratings and Reviews

Good food with good service in a local restaurant. I've recommended it several times and none have ever been disappointed. Especially notable is the staffs' willingness to accommodate those with physical differences. I have been there with folks in wheelchairs, post-stroke with some paralysis, deafness, and in every case the staff has gone out of its way to assist the person and make everyone comfortable. They don't make a big thing about it. It's just they like clients to be comfortable.

We enjoy the Gramercy on a regular basis. There are no surprises. Well prepared dishes served by friendly and accommodating staff, many of whom have been there for years. You can go there knowing you will enjoy yourself.
Suggestions would be to vary / expand the appetizer menu and offer a "house" special wine, on a regular basis.

We had a very pleasant meal and overall experience. The Veal Schnitzel, which we both ordered, was a very generous portion and well prepared. We share an appetizer of chicken livers which was delicious, if not quite hot enough for our taste. If I was looking for a special evening with gourmet dining, I would not have gone to Gramercy. I don't think that it pretends to be that. If you want a pleasant, well prepared meal, friendly and both casual and attentive service, and are looking to pay less than $45 per person including wine, Gramercy would meet those criteria and satisfy you.

This neighbourhood gem never disappoints. Went for my wife's birthday. As we are on their email list we get a free entree for birthdays! Sunday night is prime rib night and the meat is tender, juicy and flavourful. Great value. Very pleasant servers.

everything but the salad was great! the salad was so vinigary that we sent it back & the next one was marginally better. I would suggest the chef go easier on the vinigar & add a pinch of sugar & taste it himself.

Excellent fresh crisp romaine salad. Huge portion of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and vegetables. Turkey was moist but not too flavourful. Vegetables barely cooked, which was OK for two of us but the one senior would have liked them a bit softer. Absolutely fabulous lemon tart for dessert.

As usual our experience at Gramercy Grill was excellent. As it was my wife's birthday we were celebrating one of the guests brought a Birthday cake. The staff graciously served it without charging us "corkage" and with no apparent resentment that we were not buying the dessert from the restaurant.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times in the last few years. I have always found the service to be acceptable. On this occasion, the service was extremely poor. The server was not pleasant. When asked about the time delay, our server said "we are busy today" with no timeline offered. The time taken from ordering our lunch to receiving our lunch was 45+ minutes. The manager finally stepped in and apologized offering us our drinks for free and an order of bread. However, we would have preferred paying the full amount and having our food served in a timely manner.

Reliable local gem
Another yummy night at the local. Not too fancy but still has what you need for a not too involved evening. Wine list ok. Good from good to very good. Nice selection. Specials tend to be worth ordering.
Service right on the night we went.
Great Place to have a Birthday Lunch
Four of us celebrated our dear friend's birthday with a delightful lunch on Saturday. We received attentive service and the birthday gal's dessert came complete with a candle. The Gramercy has become my neighbourhood go to place.
Going down hill?
For many years, we have enjoyed the G Grill, but with our latest visit we are unlikely to return. The food (special for St. P's day) was sub-standard, and had a "pre-packaged" taste to it. Not anything like we have enjoyed in the past. Perhaps there is new ownership? Or the chef had an off night?
Good but Inconsistent
Attractive restaurant with good service and friendly staff. My friend and I had scallops in both a shared appetizer and the seafood hot pot that she had. The scallops in her hot pot were perfectly done but the appetizer's were over done. Having said that, we had a good dinner and left fairly satisfied.
Great place for enjoyable evening
We celebrated Valentine's Day here and had a delightful evening. Quiet enough for conversation, great friendly, prompt service and delicious food. My husband ordered duck which was perfectly cooked and I had the sablefish which was also well cooked.
My friend and I finished work and went to this restaurant, we picked this restaurant because seeing many good reviews in Open Table, we ordered a salad to start with and asked if the chef would splits the salad into half for us, the answer was yes but would charge $1.50 extra, not sure if this is because taking too much extra time doing this so the restaurant decided to charge customer extra but we decided we can do it ourselves instead. Well, for sure this isn't leave us a good impression as some restaurants even offer doing this for us. Food here was not great either so will not come again and will not recommend to our friends.
It is very enjoyable to dine at a restaurant where you have space between you and your neighbours and can actually carry on a conversation without having to scream over loud music. As well the food is delicious and the service was very good. It is a neighbour hood gem!
Excellent Meals !
Really enjoyed our Dine-Out experience at Gramercy Grill. We opted for the $34 menu with more attractive entrees to us, over the $30 option. We were NOT disappointed !!! --
Both Appy's (mussels & beef carpaccio) were flavourful. Entrees -- roast duck was very tasty, with nicely done vegetables, while the bbq'd pork ribs were tender, falling off the bones, and infused with the superb sauce, served with a large portion of mac & cheese. (could have reduced the mac & cheese amount and provided some veggies). Desserts -- Loved the tart -lemon tart, as well as the pecan pie!
All 3 courses were ample servings - and notably larger than offered at other Dine-Out restaurants (featuring $30 or $40 menus) we tried during this year.s Dine-Out promotions.
Servers / service -- very good, attentive, not obtrusive.
Food somewhat disappointing
I have been to Gramercy Grill before and have had some good meals there. This time we went for Dine Out Vancouver. The food was just OK. The steelhead salmon came with a too heavy and excessive curry sauce - and I love curry - it overpowered the otherwise well cooked salmon. The duck entree was not as good as I have had in many other restaurants. Tender - cooked sous vide I think - not very tasty and texture so soft it seemed processed.Desserts were aagin reasonable but nothing to write home about. Atmosphere good and service was very good.
Great Dine out
We enjoyed our meal. The services was not great. The server hardly came back to the table.
The table are very small. 4 people at a cafe table for dinner is crazy. The plates barely fit on the table. By the time you had water extra, drink glass...there was no room to move. Definately time to invest in bigger tables.
