Look, the food is great and the ambiance is too. It's a nice place, don't get me wrong when I say this. It's just so disappointing when you call a restaurant intending on a special dinner and they can't really make it special. I called...More

Stopped for dinner at Grappa 72 on way to Vt. Food was terrific. We shared a grilled shrimp salad for first course; really good. Entrees we're just as good. Only issue was slow kitchen, especially since we were traveling. I would definitely visit again, but...More

Ha a great dinner with friends at Grappa 72. I had their fish dish of the day, grouper pan sauteed. Everything was great. Great atmosphere. Perfect spot for a dinner with friends or a romantic dinner with a loved one.

Great food and service. Found on Trip Advisor the night before a flight out of Albany on my birthday. Unfortunate we don't go through here very often. We'll be back if we can. The other reviews are spot on.

I have had lunch there several times and it is consistently good. The dinging area is upscale and perfect for conversation and to have a great meal. The service is always friendly, professional, and efficient.

My family celebrated our Grandmother's 90th birthday here yesterday. There were 10 of us, including two children, and we were seated in the wine alcove. The restaurant was really accommodating; I brought in a custom cake and had two small flower vases delivered for the...More

Pretty much, yes. They have live music on Fridays, often a trio, usually jazz. I have not been there for music when it was some other kind.
