Grifone might be fine for the old-money (and just old) Manhattan set, but if you think high prices guarantee a good experience, Grifone will disappoint. The food is drab, the service is either nonexistent or arrogant & brusque (unless you're a regular), the space is charmless, and for what you're getting, the prices are astronomical. It's actually kind of amazing that this place still exists. Grifone is a tired anachronism, firmly resting on its laurels.

Our group of 6 had dinner here on 6/11/2011 and were delighted with the place. Tony suggested an appetizer for the table of 2 pastas that were delicious and presented beautifully. I had the sea bass special that was perfectly prepared. There are lots of great veal dishes, a nice wine list and a lot of charm to this gem of a restaurant. People here were a little better dressed than has become the custom, with most men wearing blazers and a few in ties. A great experience.

I have made this wonderful quaint gem my place for dinner 2-3 times per week for the past 7 months. Do yourself a favour and try this beautiful little place as I am sure you will not be disappointed

Very rarely do you get the best of both worlds when it comes to dining in Manhattan. What I mean is that finding a restaurant that combines the wonderful essence of traditional gourmet Manhattan but remains relevant is no easy task. Grifone is a classy joint where the staff takes care of their own and loves to extend their family of regular customers. It is very modest in the way it publicizes itself but thats because it really doesn't need the PR. Anyone who eats there will leave not only satisfied but just full enough. Don't be surprised to find a waiter cooking something amazing table-side. Try the Spaghetti Carbonara. RS
