Misleading cuisine

The Worst food and service I have ever had. After paying $600.00 for food that was cooked by the help . No real chef on board. Manger look tired and rushed you so he could go home. Don't mind paying for good food but at least have a chef that has been to cooking school...There are so many better places to eat Really Italian food in New York and for half the price.

Only the BEST

I truly adore going to this wonderful establishment. The service is amazing and the wine and food are ADDICTIVCE. Ask for MARIO and, believe me, you will not forget your experience there!

Simply Amazing

I enjoy going to Grifone. Once you become a regular, you become part of the family. The food, the wine, the service all add up to perfection. The only better Italian food than Grifone that I've eaten was in Italy. I even proped to my wife while dining there. The wonderful staff made that evening even more special. Dine at Grifone, just once, you will go home happy!

nothing of italian in this place anymore

I was there with my wife few days ago and to be honest after that
Joseph the former owner sold the place everything have changed even the food
and there is nothing of italian anymore , you can seat and listen the waiters talk any languages but english or italian . I remember that we just sat on the table and the captain gave us the menu before to get a drink and he started to tell specials
and we don't understand almost nothing , his knowledge was zero .

BEST Italian food outside of Italy!

Looking for an EXCELLENT place, try Grifone. Many EXTRAORDINARY dishes and menu specials. Treated like Italian royalty. Truly taken care of by their EXPERIENCED and CARING staff.

Very disappointing...

Have walked past this restaurant many times and finally dined there this weekend. Very mediocre food with presentation worthy of your local diner. If you are not a regular, you will be very blatantly ignored. Definitely not worth the price. Go elsewhere.

Felt very rushed and unwanted

I flet the waiter rushed us through the entire meal and when we asked for the ravoli appetizer he gave us a dinner order charged us $44 and spilt it amoung the four of us when only one of us wanted it. He did the same thing with the mussle appetizer. I asked for steak medium well on the well done side and he mocked me. I'm pregnant and can't eat under cooked meat, he said ""perhaps I can bring you shrimp"". I was so insulted. What waste of time. My Husband had the Osso Bucco and said it was so-so. Also, there were four of us we each had a appetizer, main course and 1 bottle of wine and the bill was over $400.00.

User review by kristin0606

One of my top three restaurants in all of New York City. The food is incredible- fresh ingredients, highest quality, and they always have amazing desserts. The Owner is extremely charming and the service is a 10. Highly recommended for any occassion.

Best Italian Food In NYC

I've eaten at Grifone a few times and it is consistently GREAT!!!. The portions are sufficient for their RICH flavor. VERY satisfying.
The chicken and pasta dishes are amazing. And if you can make it to desert it's definitely worth it even though I was so full.
Great date place or special occasion. VERY Romantic, cozy atmosphere.

Italian at its best

The best italian restaurant I've been to. I read about it on this website and decided to go. We (group of 4) walked in and we were seated right away. The service is so formal, it is a little intimidating at first. We immediately found out that although the service was formal, everyone was very pleasant. We asked a lot of questions and asked for recommendations and it was like we were best friends with the staff. The appetizers and entrees were delicious, the wine was outstanding (Formentini Merlot) and the service was out of this world. I'd recommend to anyone who wants a nice night out.
