Grant's has been a go-to for years for a good evening out with friends. We've never been disappointed with any experience there, including hanging out in the bar area. We discovered brunch here one holiday weekend... an excellent experience. You know those holidays weekends when you decide not to fight traffic or engage in other travel hassles, but you feel...

The salads are fresh and all the portions are large- we always share. The outdoor seating and heating lamps allow for great people watching. Some amazing specialty cocktails too!

Came for lunch on a Monday because another local restaurant was closed. The food was delicious and the service was efficient and friendly.

In the middle of West Hartford center. Good flavors on appetizers. Nice place for leisurely conversation with good service. Parking is always an issue in West Hartford Center.

On New Year's day my husband and I enjoyed a beautiful, quiet anniversary dinner at Grants in West Hartford center. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive, and professional. The menu is a nice mix of comfort food and higher end "fancy food". There was something there for almost anyone's tastes. I ordered a filet mignon which was delicious and my husband... More

My wife and I were looking for a good healthy salad and a low-calorie entrée. We found it at Grants. I had the chopped salad to start and the chicken breast for the entrée. Both were freshly prepared and met my healthy diet requirements. My wife had a nice piece of salmon on a salad and both were fresh and... More

We went on a relatively quiet Sunday night, which seemed odd, given the fact that the last time we visited, you could barely get into the place. The menu is quite limited and not varied to a great degree. It's pricey too. The food was very good but not outstanding (the writeups on the menu were actually more delicious than... More

We hadn't been to Grants in awhile because we felt there were better options in West Hartford. We were happily surprised. Our meals were excellent. We had 11 folks eating everything from duck to salmon and everyone enjoyed their dinner.

I enjoy going to Grants. Their happy hour is the best around. The appetizers are excellent. They could update the interior but as long as they are doing well, I guess they can afford to keep it the way it is.

Jordan took good care of our diverse party of 12. Requests came from all sides and he kept track of them all, so we were off to a strong start! I can't speak for the other drinks but my Old Fashioned was perfect (the request for "heavy on the bourbon was acted on so I had a few more throughout... More
