Given the location, reviews and prices, we were anticipating a delicious meal. Only one of our party of four got a dish that didn’t disappoint. The angel hair pasta with shrimp had elderly and ammonia-scented shrimp; my husband’s sea bass with beans was almost inedible....More

First night in Carmel our hosts recommended Gra"z"ings, well worth it. The house Paella was terrific, also the abalone. My wife is such a tourist she wanted an abalone shell, they brought her four, all cleaned. Very professional service.

We loved the place! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The bar has Pappy (bourbon) so that started it off right. Dinner was really tasty, loved it all. The wine list rivals the thickness of War and Peace. No place in Carmel is inexpensive...More

With restaurants ceasing business it is becoming a challenge to find ones you like. This is on the top of the list for fine food with a great staff. When in Carmel I will be returning here, bar none.

As a restaurant with an impressive contemporary menu, Grasing’s offers the finest coastal cuisine paired with a ‘Wine Spectator’ awarding winning wine list featuring the best California wines. For a true Carmel experience, enjoy dinner on the pet-friendly patio. In March of 1998 Kurt opened the door to his namesake restaurant: Grasing’s. In an impressive first year it received enthusiastic reviews and was voted Best New Restaurant and Best Chef by the readers of Adventures in Dining Magazine. Grasings has been featured in Bon Appetit Magazine’s Best of the Year issue in 2004, and was awarded Carmel Business Association’s Business of the Year award that same year. Carmel Magazine proclaimed Grasing’s the Critic’s Choice. Grasing’s was awarded Carmel Business Association’s Restaurant of the Year as well as a Celebrated Chef of the Year Award from the American Culinary Federation – Monterey Chapter, in 2007. In 2013 Grasing’s was voted Best Restaurant in Carmel by the readers of the Monterey County Weekly. Carmel Pine Cone Readers Poll named Grasing’s the Best Restaurant for a Steak in 2014 and 2015. Open Table diners conferred a 2015 Diner’s Choice Award on Grasing’s and Trip Advisor has given Grasing’s a Certificate of Excellence in 2015 and 2016. 2016 also brought Grasing’s a win for the Best Restaurant for a Special Occasion in 2016 from the Carmel Pine Cone Readers Poll. In 2010, Kurt revamped Grasing’s by constructing a new bar and lounge along with completing a restaurant make-over. The warm hues and contemporary decor in the restaurant and bar gives Grasing’s an even more inviting atmosphere, giving it a new look with the same great food and first-rate service to which guests are accustomed.
