Grappa Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
On top of great food and a wonderful wine selection we had a most enlightening and interesting conversation with Derek gherkins, chef de cuisine, Who stopped us in the foyer of the restaurant to ask whether we enjoyed our meal. We of course responded positively and then engaged in a 15 minute conversation with him about what he's trying to achieve and why the restaurant and it's Italian fare are so special to him. A really great and inspired chef. A perfect way to complement great dinner. We started with roasted all of us which were fantastic and among the three of us had chicken cacciatore, Branzino and pasta arrabiatta. All the pasta at the restaurant handmade and most of the ingredients are locally sourced. You could taste all of that wonderful meals. We will definitely go again.
Went to Grappa several times shortly after it opened and always had great experiences. Then it seemed to change- food wasn't as good.
After not having dined there since that time, thought we would give it another try during busy President's Day weekend.
Reception desk very friendly and accommodating despite being fully booked.
Personable and prompt service.
Food was mediocre at best and vastly overpriced.
Grape and Gorgonzola salad was excellent and creatively plated. House mixed salad was odd with cooked carrots and dry with little dressing. Scallops nicely prepared but not worth $42. Fondue was lukewarm and poor consistency due to underheating. Futtucine bolognese had more of a chunky texture than the usual sauce and lacked flavor.
This was a very expensive disappointment. The ambience was fine. The service was actually great. But the food was really just adequate. For the price it was very expensive and not somewhere we will go back to again. I am really confused by the other reviews that say the food was excellent. My $42 salmon had no flavor nor did my husbands $47 osso buco. Not sure if it was just an off night for them but we won't go back.
From the moment we walked in (way too early) they seated us right away because we had two kiddos with us. The food was incredible. The staff and service was fantastic and our server was amazing with twin four year olds. Even with a spill they were kind and warm.
I will for sure come back again. Even my son said "I want to go back to that restaurant!!"
RIP Grappa. Sadly, this was a favorite restaurant - but no more. Went for Valentines Day, knew it would be 3 course prix fixed, but for $85, it should be nice. Turns out it was two tiny appetizers & a main course, no dessert. I really never order 2 appetizers, & they were skimpy, totally worthless. One was a beet salad served in a skinny olive dish - diced beet bits with less than a teaspoon of goat cheese & 5-6 sprigs of curly lettuce - it would fit in the palm of your hand. My second appetizer was a Caesar salad - apparently made Yesterday! Again, tiny portion, old wilted & soggy - definitely NOT fresh. My filet was fine. My husbands main was misdelivered - couldn't get our waiter - a girl finally came & simply switched his meal with the other guest, commenting that no one touched it! Gross! Neighboring table rolled their eyes in amazement! Drinks were tiny - so full of ice, no taste of vodka. Decor was 3 pink balloons tied to the stair rail! For $85 pp, you could at least try to "fake" some value with roses from the grocery store & a glass of prosecco - at least try! Embarrassing for the restaurant - truthfully, we felt taken advantage of.
Very nice staff, friendly. Parking off site or on the street. Food was wonderful, and the wine list was adequate. The night we were there was a special event night with pricing per person for 3 course meal. Price to value was fair. I would still recommend it for the food and the setting. White table dining and ambiance well worth the price.
As usual, Grappa did not disappoint. We were seated right at our reservation time and acknowledged immediately by our server. Food came out promptly from a busy kitchen and especially excellent. I had the Seafood on linguine and they were able to provide me with a very tasty gluten free option. Outstanding!
Experience was sensational. 2nd visit in 8 months, we'd go back every time in Park City from New Orleans. A little noisy. Food was excellent, but not seasoned aggressively, we found it bland, but that might just be us. Carrie was an outstanding server. I just recommended Grappa to friends visiting in 2 weeks.
I thought it was overpriced and really average food at best. I have been dinning in park city for years and we stopped going to grappa and I couldn't remember why, but now I know, it just was not good at all. Park city has many fabulous restaurants this just isn't one of them.
We had a great meal and experience at Grappa. Everybody had a different dish, each expressing the flavors and how their meal was prepared was balanced and really tasty. The prices are high for Italian food, so be prepared to spend if you go there. The space is cozy and welcoming and our waiter did a good job. They were really busy, even at 8:30 when we arrived.
Every time we're in Salt Lake City, we always eat at Grappa! The mushroom soup is to die for and the rotating items on the menu are always a nice surprise. The wine list is incredible and handpicked by a true expert. We've never had a bad experience here and will come back again and again.
We visited Grappa while on an annual sibling trip. Our server was great and the food was good too. My only complaint was the wait for our table. There were many diners with reservations that were waiting more than a half an hour for the tables. We had a reservation at 8:15 and were not seated until close to nine. There is no bar or cocktail service while you wait which would have made it more palatable. I realize it's hard to get people to exit their tables but it seemed like it was a pervasive issue - at least that evening. Offering a free drink or dessert as an apology would have been nice.
We visited during their winter season, when a film festival was occurring, which caused them to have a price fixed menu, which we found delicious although "resort" type pricing. Definitely make a reservation if going during peak season. Amazing food and wine, and very cozy in the winter with a great atmosphere.
We are at Grappa during Sundance and it was terrible and a rip off. They required an $85 price fix menu during the Festival and the food was less than ordinary. Service was beyond slow. You can't use a "busy because of the Festival excuse" when you jack up your prices!
Overall, another great meal here. Brought friends for the first time. Our table was close to a pathway by the steps which detracted from the ambiance, but otherwise service was good and the food was terrific, although the signature special soup of the night could have been warmer....it was sort of lukewarm.
Fine dining is about getting all the details right. Serving food at the right temperature is one of those basics. Lukewarm soup and flatbread is not what you want to be presenting the customer, especially when the mushroom soup is one of your know specialties.
We had very pleasant waitstaff and fine ambience. The menu is terrific and has something for everyone. That said, we were in Park City for five days with my family and on a fine dining binge. Out of 4 restaurants we put Grappa in third place overall, but I would give them another chance.
This restaurant was mediocre at best. Our server seemed very overwhelmed and confused most of the time and found myself pouring our water and wine myself all night. Food was comparable to Olive Garden. This restaurant has so much potential for its location, but it's food and service is severely lacking.
