Great atmosphere! My fiance proposed in this restaurant. I went back on March 7th, 2011 at 5:30pm with my girlfriends for dinner. My friend ordered fish for dinner and it was terrible! She got like 5 bones out of 2 VERY small bites! We rejected the dish and they told us that the bones were so small to the point that the chef had broke the tool which he used to take the bones out. apparently the batch of fish they had this time were all like this. We complained to the manager, top notch restaurant shouldn't have this happen! We paid a lot for the dish! If the chief knew there are a lot of small bones... I would expect him to tell us and not continue to serve the dish! we were all finished with our meal while my poor friend still waiting for the cod to be cooked! The manager made us felt like idiot for complaining about this issue... THE WORST PART: The manager did not take her dish off the bill instead he BILLED us "THE MORE EXPANSIVE fish which we were forced to order because the other kind has too much small bones!" What kind of management is that? I complained about the fish and he charged us more? FYI... we paid full price for our meal, all he did was just to subtract the different between the two fish!

I ate there last night with my girlfriend and was very disappointed. We started out by waiting for our table to become available at the bar. we wanted some drinks. The bartender was totally not interested in serving us drinks, even though we were SITTING AT THE BAR five feet away from him. He didn't even scan our area for ten minutes. Finally I had to get his attention by raising my voice and saying "Excuse me, may we have some drinks." The bar wasn't even that loud or packed. The bartender was not apologetic at all. I understand part of his job is to talk to customers, but his MAIN job is serving customers as well, and making sure everyone has a drink..

Once we were seated outside, the waiter was rude and unhelpful. After we started our entrees, he never returned to see if we needed anything else or to see if everything was ok. Overall he had an off-hand attitude towards us.

I eat out 3 to 4 times a week and generally get good service from the areas restaurants. I had not been to Grant's in years and now I remember why. I am so unhappy with the service at Grant's that this is the first time I actually am posting a complaint at this West Hartford establishment.

Please, by all means go there if you want to be treated as though you are a nuisance to the staff and establishment in general.

You have been warned.

Grants offers a varied menu with a lot of choices - and a nice upscale environment. Although it is hard make sure to save room for dessert! The price is definitely "West Hartford" I wouldn't call it a great deal but if you are looking for a nicer night out - and depending on your budget this may fall into a special occasion place, although I doubt they mind. Although the food and service is impeccable - the atmosphere is dynamic so it is still a great place to meet up with friends you haven't seen in a while or can feel private for those times you want to just celebrate a special occasion with a loved one.

This is a first class restaurant. No jeans or sneakers here. The food is absolutely fabulous but a bit pricey. Try the pasta dishes, for under $20 those are the best deals. Reservations a must. Always crowded.

Great bar Atmosphere, can be a bit crowded at times, but thats ok if you like fun people and like to mingle, great Bartenders make it happen even better, you can even enjoy great food at the bar, Allot of booths make it very cosy as well, the food is ecclectic, even a few old fashioned items, like meatloaf and shortribs, not too pricy and everything I have tried was done to perfection, even the fries with truffle oil, thats not the actual name. Try it you will like it.
