One of the best meals I've had in a long time! Everything was perfect from the service to the ambience to the preparation of some very innovative cooking. The octopus appetizer was melt-in-your-mouth tender, the duck entree was wonderful, and the waiter's wine recommendations were...More

A very elegant restaurant with careful and a bit old style service, a pretty varied menu, discretely creative, and excellent quality of ingredients.

This was our 2nd visit to Gracie's. It was even better this time. Last year for our anniversary we went somewhere else but we still got an anniversary card from Gracie's. I had the 5 course tasting menu paired with wine. Each course was wonderful....More

Gracies is an exceptionally fine restaraunt, but they are also realistic. I have seen 3 piece suits and long dresses, and jeans and casual tops, golf shirts. Casual is definitely a safe bet, but they get a lot of folks from... More

Established in 1998, Gracie’s was founded with a vision to offer fine food and personal attention to all. Started on Providence’s Federal Hill, Gracie’s quickly outgrew its 30-seat location and moved to the Downcity Theater District in 2005. The new space offers a cozy wine room, a stunning private dining room and greater seating capacity. Although Gracie’s has grown in size it remains true to it’s mission -- to create a warm environment, and to surprise, excite and educate the palate.
