Here you will find just what you expect in an upscale family run Italian restaurant. The decor was low key and cozy. The service was very attentive, empty plates and half filled water glasses don't stand a chance. The food was phenominal. If a special is suggested by all means take it. My circumstances dictated that I bring my 2 young daughters with my wife and I. Even though this is not a place which caters to children, the staff was very gracious. Overall, terrific food and service but not inexpensive.

I have been here many times. While a bit noisy for quiet conversation the atmosphere reflects NY City. Service is always excellent and efficient - if you become a "regular" service and reception is fantastic. Some of the best selections are Italian clasics - and the boan in veal chop "a la parmagania" is outstnading. Most all pastas are fresh and properly saused. Staff willing to accomodate special preperation requests. Not an everyday priced place but for a slam-dunk NY City Italian eating experience in mid-town you can not go wrong with Grifone.

On our trip this December, 2005, we had friends recommend Grifone. We said we wanted small, of the beaten path, great Italian food. Well, we got it. Loved the restaurant the minute we walked in. Old world Italian restaurant. The service was excellent and food just as wonderful. It is a must. We will be back with every trip to the Big Apple!

My husband found this gem several years ago and we have been back several times. The food is excellent and the service although a little over bearing, is good. We look forward to our next visit.

The food was good just very expensive. Other places are just as good but less expensive.

Lunch at Grifone must be what old New York dining was all about - elegance, lovely food, overly attentive service. Our seafood salad and clams with pasta were memorable in portion, taste and service. The restaurant itself is tiny, lush and elegant. I'm really looking forward to a dinner there.

I read the other reviews so i was a little skeptical but this food was amazing -- strongly recommend.
