We went to this resturant after talking with several friends that had positive experiences and reading reviews about this place. It was a very clean, vibrant atmosphere, with several large windows to view the capital or the busy downtown life. That made it a fun place to dine. Service was friendly, fast, and answers all of our questions. Being it... More

The atmosphere is bright and cheerful. Good drinks and beer selection. The menu is not large but everything we had was very good. Great vegetarian options.

Stopped in for brunch and we were very happy by the time we left. We were seated right away, which was nice for a Saturday. Our server was very friendly and gave good recommendations. Collectively we had the scrambler, the corned beef and hash, Chef Tory's breakfast sandwich and two eggs any style. Everything was delicious, but the breakfast sandwich... More

The cheese board I had was good, but it got blown over by the wind sitting outside, so I didn't finish it. I'll have to try something new next time. My last visit was in March and the bartender was less than favorable. I wouldn't go back to sit at the bar.

The bi bim bap is fine. I recommend not getting the sauce put in for you. Get it on the side. Otherwise it is far too spicy (and I love spicy). It just over powers the dish. I'd get the tofu instead of pork. The crispy rice base is a decent sub for the lack of stone bowl so it's... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Food was average/slightly over priced. Bloody Mary was too spicy. Magic coffee was the bomb though! Little brown sugar and cinnamon. Yum! I had the loaded breakfast sandwich. It was okay, nothing 5 star. Meat was pretty greasy, sogged the toast. Came with a salad which wasn't evenly dressed. Dressing was pretty bland too. Tried they... More

My husband and I come here frequently. The service is always good. The meat and cheese is local, in fact on the back side of their menu they a really long list of the local ingredients they use and where they come from. Our favorite dish is the chicken and waffles, and the Bibimbap. The view of the capital at... More

Graze has a nice atmosphere, and great food. The only thing I don't care for is, when it's busy, it is very noisy and this makes it hard to carry on a nice conversation, even at the lunch hour.

We arrived and were sat promptly. The building is all glass windows so you have an amazing view of the capital building. You can also see into the kitchen which was pretty cool. The drink menu offered a variety of drinks that you have never heard of. I stuck with beer. The menu is the same. We all tried something... More

Graze has a great gastropub menu for dinner! We got there right when it was getting dark and the capital was lighting up. We were also seated near the windows. We had a party of 6 (2 were kids). We ordered a variety of entrees from the menu, everything was excellent! The standout item was the pork buns and bibimbap.... More
