    Only second time customer and overall was disappointed. The drinks were good, but the food was disappointing for the price charged. More like the Outback Steakhouse. Maybe it's convenient but not a good place to enjoy a great meal. Sorry!!!

    Having read many of the recent reviews, I was hoping my experience would be different. We have been going to Coach Grill for years and have basically celebrated every happy occasion there since it opened. We went for my husband's birthday. We had excellent service, fabulous side dishes, but our steaks were terrible. For something like $38 for an a la carte porterhouse you expect a really good steak. In the past our steaks have been flavorful, juicy, and worth the cholesterol. Not this time. They were both cooked as ordered but were flavorless and dry. Since our experience mirrors what so many have said on this site, I guess we need to go elsewhere from now on. It's a shame, we love going there.

    After reading numerous mediocre reviews before heading over for dinner, I was pretty worried. We have eaten at Coach Grill dozens of times and due to a recent combo of service issues and a consistent inability to actually make the same two steaks to the same doneness at the same time, we had stopped going. Gave it another try. I do see what people mean about the new menu, and yes, the prices have risen steeply. We had amazing service but it was early on a Monday night. Ordered seafood for the first time. Sea bass was excellent, lobster was very overcooked. House chardonnay was excellent. We will likely try it one more time, to see how the steaks are now, but one more strike will be it for us.

    We used to love the Coach Grill -- food was consistently outstanding, the restaurant was clean and the service was always friendly and timely. Now the restaurant should be called Tavistar instead of Coach Grill since so much of the menu and brand is no longer about Coach but about Tavistar. The menu has slightly changed; they have made changes (not positive) to the original Coach Grill menu. Our booth clearly hadn't been cleaned, the chairs were sticky and the table hadn't been wiped down properly. The restaurant smelled like bleach, it reminded me of Joe's American Grill.

    Having been to the Coach Grill many times I've always been very happy with the service. This time though the experience was like many other restaurants, not great. First the waitress did not tell us about the specials, until we asked about them. With dessert I ordered a drink and my date the key lime pie my drink came about ten minutes before the pie. It would have been nice if they came together. Also the loaf of bread that had been served when seated has been changed to rolls. I miss the bread. Otherwise our meals and appetizer, as usual, was great. The atmosphere very warm and welcoming and we will be back.

    The Coach Grill always leaves us satisfied. The food is great, the service has never disappointed and the atmosphere very relaxing! We have held special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and other family occasions with great success. Last night we had the excellent Crab Cocktail appetizer. I had the Bone In Ribeye, cooked perfectly, my wife had the grilled swordfish with the lobster risotto, both meals were delicious. Desert was the Peach Crisp topped with Vanilla Ice Cream....too good!

    We went to the Coach Grill to celebrate 2 birthdays. We went on a Sunday in August. Every single aspect of the dining experience exceeded our expectations and when we think of how many experiences exceed expectations, this is truly a notable achievement. We requested "quiet", and "we don't want to be rushed" and they delivered. Our server was truly exceptional providing just enough attention to make us feel appreciated but not enough to feel uncomfortable. Her suggestions were great and really contributed to our enjoyment. The food was really exceptional -- both of us had a beef entrée: superbly seasoned and precisely cooked to our requests. A special place for a very special occasion. Pricey - but worth every penny.

    We went to the Coach Grille to celebrate my Dads 85th birthday on a Tuesday night. The service that night was extremely slow with very long gaps between courses. While the main entrees were good, the mash potatoes arrived cold. We avoided ordering dessert as we did not want to spend another hour at the restaurant.

Where can one go ALL the time and have consistency it doesn't happen, here it does. I have been on a quiet night and crazy busy weekends the food is always consistent and delicious. The staff are very helpful if you are torn for a choice. The steaks and seafood are equally delicious.

    We have dined here before and it has been excellent, this past visit was very mediocre. They served us rolls before we even opened the menu which was a nice gesture, but it tasted like it had been frozen and reheated. The menu had changed and I asked for a plain side salad and the waitress said they couldn't do that, to order a salad from the menu (not cheap) and pick off what I didn't want. My salad was not very good. I got the brown rice risotto and it reminded me of bad Chinese food. My husband had oysters, which he has gotten there before, and said they weren't nearly as good as normal, and his first few bites of the filet was just OK but it did get better. Our meals could've been better somewhere else at half the price.

    We were initially seated near the bar, where it was unusually chilly, so we asked for another table, which was promptly provided. We had an excellent meal -- swordfish with lobster risotto and asparagus for my husband and sea bass with lobster ravioli and spinach and tomatoes for me. Everything was top notch. The service was also good, except for the 5 or 10 minute lag between coffee, served soon after our meal, and dessert, which we would have preferred to have with our coffee. It was not a dessert which needed cooking, so the lag was inexplicable. We jogged the waiter's memory, who simply replied "It's coming," which it did about 3 or 4 minutes later. However, this was the first time we've had a complaint about the service.

    We were not prepared for the ala carte nature of the menu. The side dishes were enormous, and could have been shared between several of us. They came in large, separate dishes, and it was difficult to arrange them on the table for eating with the main entree. At least, they provided us with two dishes after we said that we would split a Ceaser salad.

    In a phase, "just expensive." Beef is excellent, place was crowded but service is moderate. For a per couple cost of $200 you expect both meals to be served at the same time - ours were not - and there was no apology. (Also, observed others sending their plates back to the kittchen.) Key problem is too many people involved with attending to each table, with no one particularly responsible. Further we were packed into a row of little tables because we were only a couple. Nice but definitely not worth the cost

    We had a group of 4 couples. All the women had fish, 3 Sea Bass and one Ahi Tuna, and all enjoyed it. The men had steak but there was an issue with the two Porterhouse steaks not being cooked properly. A medium steak was more well done and a medium rare was closer to medium. The steaks were redone and they were then fine. The only problem was the meal was now disjointed and the side orders of vegetables had gotten cold. Too bad because that reduced the overall enjoyment of the meal. However our wine selections were great and the two desserts ordered, a skillet Cookie and Abe and Louis Chocolate cake were very good.

    The meal was great as always...but thought that when ordering the Petite Filet Mignon as my husband and I did...that when it arrived at the table, it could have had some garnish on the plate.... Seeing the filet on a stark white plate (more like a platter) did nothing to enhance the meal. Maybe some parsley, lettuce leaf, watercress...something....would have made all the difference in the "presentation." It seems as at if most restaurants today pay attention to presentation...except for Coach Grill...

    The food was good, per usual. We had not dined there in a year or so. The service was attentive, but the food was slow to come out of the kitchen, and the waiter forgot to enter our son's order (appetizer and dinner), or else the kitchen forgot to make it. The waiter did apologize but there was no offer to discount an appetizer or dessert as is generally the custom in these situations. The food is good, and it is a nice atmosphere. It gets noisy when busy.

    We have been going to Coach Grill for almost 10 years. Although the service has generally been very good, this restaurant simply is not the same in terms of food quality - especially given the prices involved. This was not just an "off night". Rather, it was the third time we have been back to try, yet the result was still the same; [almost] average food at a premium price.

    I love Coach Grill I am a frequent visitor I would say. On my recent visit we were celebrating two Birthdays on the same day. Being summer on a weekend it was delightful! With so many away it was not as noisy as usual. Joanne was most accommodating getting us a perimeter table because my Mum has hearing issues. KL is WONDERFUL! He makes the dining experience an evening to remember! My young nephews were with us. They are becoming foodies as this is their hands down favorite restaurant. They start at the top with appetizers and work on down to desert! This night a platter of deserts arrived! To the delight of all. You would never know we just ate a three course meal....there was nothing left! Thank you for another wonderful memory!

    The food was OK; not up to par with previous, occasional visits. We ordered the Buffalo Mozzarella Beefstake tomato salad as an appetizer. What we got were tomato slices on Romaine lettuce with blue cheese; no mozzarella, arugula, pine nuts, etc. It wasn't even close. I don't think such a dish is even on their menu. Our waiter was a very nice guy but it seemed like his first day on the job. No plates for the app, no specials offered, never returned to pour wine, and he didn't tell me that the lamb chops comes with potatoes when I ordered them as a side. Overall, a very amateurish experience and I consider my expectations very minimal. Even the bartender seemed annoyed when we asked where the restrooms were located. Yikes.
