Graze is an exceptional restaurant with great service. Tom is behind the bar and is schooled at the Cullinary Institute of America in Napa...his influence at the bar and in the kitchen definitely takes the experience to a new level...a must stop in Iowa City.

I took two clients out to Graze and everyone had an excellent time. We dined outside while listening to a live band play on the Ped Mall. The appetizers were great for sharing and the large plates proved to be the perfect size for entrées.

We just had our anniversary and picked Graze, and we were very happy! Marlen had great suggestions on the menu, the Ahi Tuna Stack and the huge grilled pork chop and Dirty Harry Martinis were awesome. Clean. friendly staff, good vibe on the ped mall.
