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. :)

Kendal and the team at Gracie's is AMAZING!
WOW! We cannot say more positive things about working with Kendal and the team at Gracie's. First off, Kendal is so amazing to work with. She is so genuine, kind, thoughtful, and easy going which made the planning process so stress free and simple. She is made for this job! While most people dread the planning process, my now husband and I really enjoyed it and I believe it was because Kendal made it really enjoyable for us. While planning, Kendal responded very timely too all our questions and tended to all our needs. She was also very mindful of our budget and made sure to stick to it throughout the process which we very much appreciated. Also during the wedding, her and the assistant coordinator, Jessie, were there every step of the day. I had not seen the main dining room space until I walked into the dining room for my ceremony, and had no doubts that everything would be where it needed to be and I was right, it looked incredible.
As far as the space itself, Gracie's is a beautiful venue for a smaller wedding. We had around 82 guests and the space definitely felt full, but comfortable. We also decided to have our ceremony in the main dining room, and while it was tight (Which we were given a head's up about), it was intimate and I couldn't imagine having it any other way. We had so many positive comments from our guests about how intimate and cozy it felt. After our ceremony for the cocktail hour, Kendal and the staff set us up in the wine room in the downstairs part of the restaurant with a platter of the hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of prosecco. It was a great breather for myself, husband, our parents, best man and maid of honor to sit, drink, and eat before continuing on with the night. It also gave us the space to sign our marriage license with our friend who married us, and to enjoy the first moments to celebrate being husband and wife!
Next to the wine room, is another private dining room that is bigger than the wine room, but a big enough space to fit some high top tables and our open air photo booth. There is a bar in there as well which was setup with a water station for our guests. The main dining room is also a great color for any florals and colors you decide to have. We went with whites, golds, and greens, and our greenery and florals looked amazing in the space. Gracie's used their candles which are a mix of clear, white, and gold placed throughout our centerpieces, garland, on the tables, and around the restaurant which made the space feel cozy and warm. Our DJ had a perfect spot set up in their private booth at the front of the restaurant, and our dance floor felt huge! We had 2 long tables set up for dinner, and were taken away once dinner was over. The tables were out of the spacec before I realized it and it was a great open space for dancing. There was still plenty of seating in the bar, downstairs in their private dining room, and on the outside perimeter of the main dining room for non dancers.
The staff at Gracie's was so amazing and accommodating and the food is indescribable. One thing my husband and I wanted for our guests was great food and Gracie's delivers that effortlessly. Every dish was prepared and plated so elegantly and looked beautiful. Our guests really loved the palate cleansers that were served before both 1st and 2nd course, and raved about our mini donuts that were placed on the bar for the taking, as well as macarons! Kendal even brought my husband and I a plate of the donuts to us so we wouldn't miss out on trying each kind! We also had a cutting cake which was not passed out to our guests, but for us to enjoy while cutting and save for our 1 year anniversary. It was a pretty large cake for a cutting cake, so my immediate family was also able to enjoy some of it while we were away on our honeymoon.
If you're looking for a small, intimate wedding that does not break the bank, we totally recommend Gracie's as your venue! We cannot thank Gracie's enough for making our wedding day literally the best day ever!

The Best Wedding Venue!
I don't even know where to begin. Gracie's was filled with the most responsive, detail oriented, kind, supportive and flexible staff imaginable. As a pretty low key (read disorganized) bride they made my wedding happen. It was gorgeous, fun, so professional, VERY delicious and beautiful. Kendal helped me every step of the way through wedding planning and answered all of my silly questions with such enthusiasm. From the first meeting to being there the night of my wedding Kendal and the staff were phenomenal to work with. The process of planning a wedding could not have been easier with Gracie's and they ensured the whole day ran smoothly. My guests were raving about the food, including my father who was a chef, and everyone was so full and well fed with quality tasty food the entire night. They accommodated several of my guests with food allergies and picky eaters. The staff was understanding and knowledgable about all of the allergens and ingredients of the food. The bread there made me tear up it was so good. The prices were comparable to other wedding venues which was a pleasant surprise for an upscale restaurant. They also had the most flexible open bar options to choose from. They saved us hor d'oeuvres to have when we arrived on our wedding day along with our preferred drinks, and they left small treats for my guests in their cars. They had the menus customized with our names, and guests were able to choose their meals the night of. There were so many more details they did to make our day perfect. You will not be disappointed with how above and beyond this gem of a wedding venue goes for all couples getting married!
For a 5 star culinary experience look no further than Gracie's! Their service is impeccable and their food is divine. Whether you choose to have your reception, shower or rehearsal at Gracie's or have them cater your wedding at an outside venue you are guaranteed top notch service. Don't forget to check out their sister company, Ellie's Bakery, for a wedding cake too!
