We had our Thanksgiving dinner at Grasing's a few days ago and it was excellent. The cocktails, the apps, the wine recommendation, the whole meal, the friendly and attentive service; all of it made for a great evening. Of note: my mushroom tart was amazing; I could've just had that!

My only complaint which they were quick to address was the table we were shown to must have been 6 inches from the next one. I would have gone elsewhere if another table hadn't been offered. 3 tables which are far too close. The hostess was on the ball though and said if we went to the bar for a... More

My wife and I have dined at Grasings in the past and enjoyed a 5 star experience. This time the Tito's Martini, which started the dining experience, was the best for the evening. We ordered a warm spinach salad, which when it came out 20 minutes later, it was anything but warm. The waiter questioned our comment, but finally took... More

We had Sea of Cortez prawns and seared scallops with 3 cheese ravioli as our main courses. Both were delicious and inventive dishes although expensive. The atmosphere was good but service was slow despite the restaurant not being full.

Grasings is wonderful every time we go. On my most recent visit I enjoyed the delicious scallops that come with raviolis and vegetables. All the food is very fresh and beautifully presented. Service is attentive and gracious. I highly recommend Grasings as a must visit in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

We have been here a few times and really enjoy the bar area. We usually order a nice bottle of wine and have a light snack. This time we went for dinner and was sitting in the bar area. We had a really cute table by the window. It had a very cozy feel. Very Carmel. The food here is... More

I go everywhere all over the world. I never review the places. Tonight I have to. They didnt want us there was our feeling. I think its really sad to experience. You should close it down and do something else.

Grasing's is one of the best restaurants in Carmel by-the-Sea. Excellent food and service, plus a great bar and wine list, in a sophisticated, but casual, venue. They have both indoor and outdoor dining, and the latter is dog-friendly.

We have been here several times. I did have one mediocre steak meal but every other time has been outstanding, I had the veal chop last night and it was one of the best I have ever had, cooked perfectly and an excellent lean piece of meat. The vegetables that accompanied the meat were seasoned and cooked perfectly. My wife... More

This is a lovely restaurant to have a meal. Indoor and outdoor space. We went here for lunch on our last day in Carmel and had a fantastic burger.

Grasing’s, located in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, lies along the Pacific Coast in Central California in Monterey County. It is 120 miles south of San Francisco, 70 miles south of San Jose and 350 miles north of Los Angeles. Celebrity chef partners, Kurt Grasing and Narsai David, truly created a gem. Fancifully designed in warm hues and modern art work, Grasing’s sets the stage for entertaining that is at once festive and intimate. From friendly and professional service, an award winning wine list and seasonally inspired cocktails to the fresh and sustainable local ingredients are only a few reasons why Grasing’s still receives rave reviews from the press. Just recently, Grasing’s was awarded “Restaurant of the Year” and “Business of the Year” by the Carmel Business Association. Chef Grasing was also honored recently by the American Culinary Federation and received an award for “Chef of the Year”.
