My wife and I celebrated our marriage this past weekend with a rehearsal dinner / cocktail party at Gracie's and we can not recommend them enough. Every single part of working with them was an absolute pleasure; from the incredibly generous (and delicious) preparatory chef's-tasting (complimentary with the booking!), to the orchestration of the final event - full of nothing but laughter and smiles. Kendal, the Catering & Events Director, is an absolute wonder. Working with her was so smooth, her communication reliable and clear - we never felt any stress whatsoever in the whole process (which must be some kind of divine miracle, when do you ever hear about stress-free wedding planning??). We attribute that to Kendal and her unbelievable dedication. And we had a lot of requests - our family makes maple syrup, so we were hoping to incorporate that into the food, which they did with enthusiasm. Gracie's sister bakery Ellie's also supplied a number of desserts for our actual wedding the following day, specifically a Macaron tower with 3 custom flavors and 5 unique pies. Due to some last minute plan shifting on our end, some of our requests were made fairly late - but Kendal and Gracie's handled everything efficiently and joyfully. And about that maple syrup - Chef Melissa wielded that stuff with complete magic! We just told her to do whatever she wanted with it, and what she came up with was not only delicious but it honored our hard work, and the syrup, with such expertise - it brought us to tears. The complexity of flavor that she was able to achieve was really something special. We will 100% work with Gracie's and Ellie's again soon. Kendal and Chef Melissa and the entire team are doing it right, and we are so so thankful to have had all of them as a part of this incredible moment in our lives.

We held my daughter's bridal shower at Gracie's and it was everything I hoped for an more. It's actually our favorite restaurant so we knew the food would be outstanding (Chef Matt is so talented), and the venue itself is charming. Kendal, the event manager is organized, enthusiastic and definitely loves her job. She walked us through everything painlessly and rearranged the seating several times to accommodate our needs. She has the patience of a saint and always a smile on her face. The staff was outstanding from the bar service to the wait staff. Our buffet meal was presented beautifully. They even took our table decorations and set them out for us. We felt relaxed through the day, and Kendal helped guide things along without any rush at all. I highly recommend Gracies!

Gracie's and the entire team was absolutely amazing! We hired them to cater an off-site rehearsal dinner. They set up everything, made the best food I've ever had at a rehearsal dinner or wedding, and cleaned up! Everything was super easy, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more professional to my guests. I am still hearing people rave about how great it was! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!! Thank you Gracie's!!!!

Gracie's was an amazing venue for our wedding. We held a very small event with 35 guests for both our ceremony and reception. Kendall and her team made sure every detail was taken care of and were extremely responsive to all questions. Working with Kendall was a dream, she is exceptional at her job! The food, ambiance, everything was perfect. I would recommend Gracie's to anyone.

We had 44 guest and a DJ in the function room Dec 30 2016 and it was fabulous (venue/decorations/food/bar/service.) Kendal was excellent to work with and the entire Team at Gracie's was outstanding. If you have a smaller wedding/event Gracie's is perfect. Rick and Stephanie

Gracie’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Providence, and it only seemed fitting that we hold our wedding reception there. Everything about the event was perfect from the pre-planning stages through the night of the event. The food at Gracie’s is phenomenal, and for our wedding it was no different. We decided on a cocktail reception with free-flowing food (some stations) and drinks. While we did not have enough physical seats/tables for all guests, one would not have noticed. We had about 140 people total and removed tables to make a dance floor in the middle of the restaurant. The staff at Gracie’s is top notch, and almost every guest commented on this aspect (as well as the food). The events coordinator, Kendal, was extremely responsive and helped to execute the vision described. The food was delicious, and the cocktails were great. We can’t say enough great things about Gracie’s. From Kendal to chef Matt to all the servers, they were amazing. We can’t wait to hold another event there and neither can our friends (anniversary party perhaps?). Looking forward to many more celebrations to come at Gracie’s.

There are lots of great reviews on this page of Gracie's — they will tell you about the AMAZING food (seriously, you guys—we've had countless people tell us it was the best food they've EVER had at a wedding) and the gorgeous space. I encourage you to read them all and ooh and aah about the awesomeness that is Gracie's. For the purpose of this review, then, I'm going to focus on the process of planning/having a wedding at Gracie's and the people who help you do so. This may sound like separate things, but it's not—and that's part of what makes Gracie's so special. First, Kendal. WHERE TO BEGIN? If you get married at Gracie's, Kendal will be your POC. This is a VERY good thing. When we started planning, the one thing I really cared about was that it not become a stressful, un-fun thing. If this sounds appealing, I have the perfect solution for you: leave it up to Kendal! You won't be disappointed. Planning our wedding was a delight—I enjoyed it. I don't know many brides who can say that, and I owe that all to Kendal. She's the best: a rare combination of professional, warm, and fun. In terms of your role in the planning, you can do as much (or, in my case, as little) as you like, and she will work with you every step of the way. Did I mention she's someone you actually *want* to be interacting with every step of the way? Then there's Chef Varga. SO talented, so accessible, so pleasant, so accommodating. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Chef. I worked in restaurants for many years, and can confidently say that chefs like Chef Varga are few and far between. Finally, the entire staff at Gracie's—just no words. This is service that's hard to find. I can't tell you how many people commented on how wonderful the folks who worked our event were. Considering Gracie's for your wedding? Proceed to the booking part—seriously! Without even knowing you, I'm willing to bet it would be one of the best decision you've made in a while. :)

We could not be more pleased with our wedding at Gracie's! Our guests could not stop raving about how perfect our wedding was. This was all thanks to Kendal and the entire Gracies team that made our day one we will never forget. When looking for a wedding venue we wanted someplace downtown, where we could focus our budget on food and alcohol. Gracie's absolutely fits the bill if those are your priorities. We had 70 guests and 7 kids at our wedding and the space was perfect. Plenty of room for dancing, drinking, dinner, toasts etc. I highly highly highly recommend Gracies!!

Food: Written words can do no justice to the amazing hor d'oeuvres, appetizers, bread, entrees, and desserts that come out of Gracie's and Ellie's kitchens. Meeting Chef Varga and Chef Denmark for the tasting session was an honor in and of itself. Venue: Perfect size for our guest list of around 60-70. The restaurant is so beautifully decorated at baseline that there really is no need for further embellishments. The entire Gracie's team went above and beyond our expectations on our wedding day to make the place feel so beautiful; they set up different areas of the restaurant based on our requests (ie photobooth area, guest book/gift area). DJ booth and dance floor are easily set up based on your table layout. Details: Words also do not describe how amazing Kendal is as a wedding/event coordinator. Her attention to detail and ability to envision the wedding day is phenomenal, and she will go the extra mile to make your day extra special. Probably the biggest standout is her focus on the bride/groom on the wedding day--she made sure we were able to grab a few bites here and there and that we would not miss out on the amazing food our guests were enjoying! Communication with Ellie's for the cake and dessert was also extremely easy. Overall, could not have asked for a better wedding reception. Thank you to Kendal and everyone at Gracie's!

Selecting Gracie's as the site for our reception is definitely the best decision we could have made for our 30 person wedding. It's our favorite special occasion restaurant, but we were hesitant to approach them because of pricing concerns (we were graduate students at the time). However, after contacting a few venues, we were disappointed in the quality of food and facilities. We sent a message to Gracie's about our interest, and were connected with Kendal Fitzsimmons, the event coordinator. Kendal is an basically our fairy godmother of wedding planning! We don't have much experience with these matters, and she was on top of details we hadn't thought about. In fact, when we met with her for the first time, she asked if we had selected a venue yet. When we said no, she volunteered the rooftop site where Gracie's has their culinary garden. We had been up there for a tasting the year before and knew how gorgeous it was. It didn't hurt that it was being offered for FREE if we were done in an hour. Sold! Over the course of months leading up to the wedding, Kendal remained in contact with us, checking in on our changing needs. She was exceptionally responsive to emails and helped calm our anxieties. Meeting with the head chef and head pastry chef at Ellie's was a privilege I don't think would be available at most other restaurants. There was even a complimentary tasting. One of us is gluten-free, and almost the whole dining menu and all of the desserts were gluten-free. The day of the wedding was phenomenal. Kendal made sure that all the guests and vendors found their way to the rooftop and the ceremony went off with nary a hitch. She even had champagne waiting for us! The table arrangement with a dance floor and full private bar was perfect. Everyone said it was the best wedding food they ever had, and we 100% agree. Do not be afraid of cost-- Gracie's was the lowest bid we received, best we could have ever hoped for. Kendal alone is worth it!

We chose Gracie's for our Rehearsal Dinner...best choice we could have ever made. Kendal Fitzsimmons, Events Coordinator, was "top notch"! From the day we booked until the final guest departed Kendal was at our disposal. then there's the food...quite simply 'delicious"! Wait-staff was most attentive. Can't wait to go back for a quiet dinner with family and friends! Don't miss out on this venue!
