Enjoyed dining al fresco on a June evening. They were busy, but still, the food and the service were average. The price seemed high for what you received.

Starting with the talented bartender, we loved Graze. We had three couples who ordered 6 small plates and shared. Perfect menu for that. Meatballs were the table favorite. Hangar steak and scallops were both terrific. Would definitely recommend it.

I have been to graze many times but this time was not worth it. The food did not seem as fresh as normal and the quality was less than what we had remembered. The final straw was when they brought chocolate chip cookies that were burned to the table for dessert. I will rethink going any time soon.

Went here for Valentine's day. Was disappointed. Almost $15 for a grilled salad that tasted OK. $35 for a tiny piece of fish with sauce on it. My boyfriend is a chef and ordered a $45 steak that was undercooked. We both left still feeling hungry and with empty wallets.

I've been to this restaurant twice and have been blown away both times. The decor is amazing and if you sit by the window you get an awesome view of the capital.

The food is terribly overpriced and nothing more than fair. My husband ordered a medium rare burger and got a over well done dried burger on an English muffin for $11. An egg Mcmuffin tastes better from the dollar menu and is twice the size. Plus the service was sub par and the couple we dined with were extremely disappointed... More

My niece is a student at UW and we took her out for a late lunch. She is a vegetarian and loved her beet burger.
