Stopped in for a glass of wine and an appetizer. The waitress did not understand our order and brought the wrong glass of wine and the wrong appetizer. Duck prosciutto tasted OK, but a very small portion. Wines were very expensive by the glass. There are other nice places in this area to try; won't be back.

We met friends for wine and tapas before going to the movies. What a wonderful, energetic spot to meet friends! The burrata cheese with apricot jam was delicious with Sancerre - by the glass.

This is one of those rare places where I wanted to try the whole menu with no exception. Our waiters explained, with divine details, our dishes and questions. They also prepared something special for our 9 year old boy, which was highly appreciated. The food was just superb, I dont impress easily when it comes to food, but this place... More

The environment is very good and the decoration is good, but everything is ruined by the servers. They are extremely rude, and keep coming back every 5 minutes to force you to buy more wine or more food (so that their tips are bigger), which is extremely inelegant. As a short-term visitor in the US without internet or cellphone plan,... More

This is another trendy Palo Alto bar/restaurant. You can eat downstairs, but it was very loud. Luckily our table was upstairs. Service from the busser and expediter was very good. Our waiter was ok, but stoic. Our choices in appetizers and entrees was good. Oysters on 1/2 shell, frito mixto. I ordered the ravioli in pesto.It was 3 large raviolis... More

We went here for a team dinner and had a great time. First, the positives - great service from the staff. The appetizer selection was great, but the entree and wine menu were overpriced. I would recommend this place for a business event but would not go here for a personal dinner.

My wife and I dined at Gravity, probably our 4th or 5th visit there. As it turns out, we each ordered the muscles appetizer and it was spectacular. The toasted slightly garlicked bread for dipping added to the enjoyment. I had bocatinni pasta as my entree and it was cooked perfectly with just the right amount of sauce. Our waiter... More

Stumbled into this really pleasant place while waiting to be picked up after dinner. Clearly very popular with locals as it was difficult to get a seat and ours was taken very quickly when we left. Very relaxed style of wine bar. Idiocentric decor, comfortable sitting. Very pleasant place to spend some spare time or meet with friends.

This place exudes good vibes: the bartenders friendly and knowledgeable (and they give great advice), the decor is minimalist but comfortable, lighting is nice, and the seating is flexible. The wine selection - including some very good prosecco and other kinds of sparkling wines - is pretty good. A much better choice for wine bar than many of the alternatives... More
