    This was by far one of the most exceptional dining experiences we’ve ever had, and we are 50-something foodies. Our waiter Jonathan was a true professional. He helped us “put together” a meal to split just for us. We started with their delicious potato bread, then onto raw oysters with four different sauces. After that, we had a wedge salad and an entree of wagyu fillet, Alaskan black cod, grilled lobster tail, broccolini, and grilled asparagus. All were served with a fantastic presentation. They also have delicious handcrafted cocktails. The manager stopped by every table to check-in. There were several tables, and everyone appeared to be having excellent service. The waitstaff was everywhere and even checked on each other’s tables. If you like fine dining in a casual atmosphere, you owe it to yourself to try Guard and Grace. We didn’t have room for dessert, but the choices were very tempting. Thank you for an excellent dining experience from start to finish.

    Everything was great! A little sad I didn’t get to try the Lobster Ravioli but maybe next time. Jordan was a great server who thoroughly explained the menu to us for being first time guests there.

    Went here for an anniversary. Best part about the whole night was the service. I would give service 6 stars if I could. Storm was our server and he explained things so nicely. We did the signature tasting, which was six dishes and we added on an appetizer in the beginning. The price for all that was reasonable and what you would expect from a high end sushi restaurant. With the appetizer, we ended up full, which is good. The food was amazing. Would highly recommend for a date night

    Delicious. Didn’t know how they’d do brunch, but it was absolutely delicious, all the flavors were there, the bacon was amazing & they went out of their way for one of our spect requests (for fresh jalapeños). So glad we booked here for NY’s day—they didn’t disappoint!

    Our New Year’s Day tradition for several years had been oysters and champagne on the deck at A’Bouzy. Hands down the best champagne list in town, and the food is always wonderful. We’re also big fans of the takeout dinners…an unmatched value.
