I have been trying o get information on this restaurant, but can't find very much. Has anyone out there been to this restaurant?

    Thanks to all who provided information about Grants. I think I will try one of Maxs restaurants. Based on the general consensus I think I will give it a miss at present.

      I went to Grants when it first opened..it was great..the food melted in your mouth...great service...went again and it was good but had a bridge & tunnel feel...went last summer for the last time..it was terrible...my wine was served with a dead fly stuck to the side of the glass...when I let the sever know (quietly so as not embarrass him)...he said "it's that time of year"...or something to that effect ..no apology..my salad was served as lettuce and a few drops of dressing..one crumb of bacon...and that's it..not as described on the menu....I didn't bother to complain...I don't remember the rest but will never go back...there are so many better spots within a stones throw...

        Grants is a place to be seen rather than a place to eat. The food is good, not great, and pricey at that. Service varies and can have "the attitude" based on how much one is ordering or drinking.

          I agree with Acervoni, the food is okay (although the bar area is a nice place to sit and have a cocktail), Bricco's is much better (along with many other restaurants located in West Hartford). Here is the website for Grant's/Bricco's:

            Grants in West Hartford is okay. The food is very good but I have never been wowed. There sister restaurant Bricco's (around the corner from Grants) and Max's Oyster Bar are better choices for West Hartford Center Dining.

                Hi. It's in West Hartford Center actually and though I can't say I've been there, do a search using the search field while in the NE board and you'll find posts about it.

                good luck!
