I've been to Graze a dozen or so times since it opened years ago. It's a very small restaurant on the Ped Mall. They have a nice drink menu (fun Happy Hour) if you can get a table. Their lunch buffet is a must though....More

Excellent food served by knowledgeable servers. Sides are my favorites. Fish tacos also really good. And the salad is gorgeous - with a wonderful house dressing!

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 my parents to Graze and they were impressed with both the service and food. We ate outside and my mother commented that she could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Graze!

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.

The host wouldn't seat me at a table because I was dining by myself, even though half the tables outside were empty and all but one of the tables inside were empty. Rather than sitting at the bar--which was also empty--where he wanted me to...More
