As a passionate diner I was thrilled to discover Grayz. I found the food imaginative and perfectly executed even my dining companion who prefers a "steakhouse experience" was enthralled. Not only the food was impressive but the formal yet friendly service made us both feel like long time regulars (a very unusual and welcome feeling) we were even invited into the kitchen area to meet and express our admiration to the chef. As someone lucky enough to have enjoyed some of the top restraurants in the country I must say my evening at Grayz will be remembered as one of the best.

This place was very poor. The food was very expensive for what you get. Tiny portions of very dull food. Compare it to Town and Gordon Ramsay restaurants which have incredible, wonderful food for incredible value. The tables here were close, noisy and just not a good experience.

Beautiful Space AND Food

I was blown away by my experience at Grayz. The concept and overall experience is very different than Cafe Gray. I was more and more pleased as the night went on. Every course was interesting and stimulating. I tried two specials of the evening, and they were better than I expected. The seared tuna skewers were beyond words. My husband ordered the braised short rib of beef, and I couldn't keep my fork off of his plate. Compared to the small dish section of the menu, the main course serving sizes are big enough to satify the hungry eater who isn't into the small dish tasting experience. Each dish is served in a different plate/bowl/wood block/glass cone (you name it), which adds to the individuality and uniqueness of the menu. To end the meal, you MUST try the passion fruit souffle and the chocolate truffles. The space is absolutely fabulous. There is a brilliant mix of modern and classic beauty. 100% recommend.

Was there the other night. Loved this little gem of a place, very sophisticated vibe. Amazing appetizer menu with very interesting drinks. Very friendly staff made the atmosphere comfortable, which is unusual to find at the upscale hotel bars. Interesting wine list and great people watching!
