Unique concept with the "Graze" option at $20/person. Prix fixe three course: #1 pretzel with fondue #2 Caesar salad, spring rolls and bruschetta #3 Chicken lips, short ribs and green beans The cheese fondue accompanying the pretzel nuggets were amazing. The pretzel nuggets were overly hot probably from a quick microwave zap. This is my second time having the Graze... More

The drinks were fantastic! Excellent martinis. My chicken lips (they are really just chicken tenders) were overcooked but everyone else's meal was great. Overall, I will return, probably again and again.

Came for dinner on a Friday night and with reservations, we were seated immediately. Our party decided to do the Amazing Grazing at $20/person, while one person had the Salmon. I didn't think I would have initially chosen that combination of dishes, but it was well worth it! Pretzels with a Cheesy Fondue, Spring Rolls, Caesar Salad, Cheesy Pesto Bruschetta,... More

Had a fantastic anniversary dinner with my wife. It was our first time there. We ordered the "Amazing Graze" plus an order of "California King" Sushi. The 3 course meal was perfect in presentation, portions and of course, taste. It's a relatively small restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. The wait staff and hostess were very friendly. Great place for couples... More

I highly recommend the Amazing Grazing dining expereince. This gives you a taste of all the best items on the menu for $20 and you will be satisfied at the end. My favorites include the pretzel bites with very tasty cheese fondue and the ribs have fall off the bone meat. This time our chicken lips were a little over... More

Had been looking for a place that served seafood. The previous night had gone to a steakhouse in the area, but chose steak as the main course. Ran across Graze and they had exactly the thing I was looking for. Ordered the Filet (Minon) and Crab Jar. It's Alaskan King Crab in a Mason jar of melted butter. It was... More

Graze is located on the ped mall in downtown Iowa City, right across from the Old Capital Mall. Smallish but with the availability of outdoor seating when weather permits, it's generally decent food. I've eaten there a few times, mainly for the lunch buffet with interesting menu items such as the "chicken lips"(basically chicken tenders with a buffalo style sauce)... More

Made a reservation with Open Table but when our party arrived we were told that they had no record of it and it would be a long wait. Sometimes things happen, but the hostess told me that I should call to make reservations! The whole point of open table is to be able to do it online. I had been... More
