    Breakfast food is easy and tasty, but this was not food to go out of your way for. I had scrambled eggs that just didn't taste like eggs (I wondered what they cooked them in). They were dry when I asked for them to be cooked so still moist. Pancakes were leathery (it's hard to ruin a pancake). The bacon was unevenly cooked, parts done, parts still rare-ish. Very expensive brunch. Go to a good diner instead!

    I was very disappointed in my bone-in ribeye at my last visit. Done slightly under temp (which is better than the opposite, and not worthy of comment) but this was one tough piece of meat. The menu quotes "The finest USDA cuts available". Perhaps the modifier "available" takes them off the hook, but the $38 price tag suggests that a steakhouse quality piece of beef will be delivered. Not in this case. Another concern is that I am a very frequent Open Table user and I was seated, in a very sparsely occupied dining room, next to the kitchen door and the waiters' station. Why not deliver a good seat when they are available. I judge a restaurant on how I am treated, I don't beg for seating and don't send food back. Gimme your best shot!

    our past experience with the maitre'd was very questionable, we had reservations for a specific time which we arrived on time but had to wait over an hour and half to be seated and the was rushed thru our meal. we decided to give it another chance and this time it was great, seated right away and our waitress Heather, who only work monday and tuesday, was fantastic. it was a very special occasion for my wife and I and we had a very enjoyable meal which gave us the opportunity to have a great time.

    If you want a good suburban American meal in a pleasant atmosphere, and are prepared to pay a little more than you might expect, the Coach Grill is a good choice. Because it's not "trendy", we were able to get a last-minute reservation on a Saturday night. Our meal was up to expectations, even a bit better. My husband's large-chunk crabmeat cocktail was excellent, and the flourless chocolate cake was delicious. This is one of the few neighborhood places for prime rib; I just wish I could get it rare rather than medium-rare. But I was disappointed in the bacon/blue cheese/peppadew appetizer. Overall, the food is satisfying, if not especially creative or original. We don't go there often, but we haven't been disappointed.

    The food was great, except for the French fries. They were bland and not at all crispy. My husband and I shared a caprese salad to start and we both had the prime sirloin steak, medium rare. The steak was excellent (although I think it was salted) both in flavor and in the cooking. The onion rings were great as was the grilled asparagus. We had 2 glasses of wine each; I really liked my selection but my husband was not as excited by his. For dessert I had a peach crisp and my husband had the bread pudding; both were well-made. We had an excellent waiter (Kevin); he was a true professional with a flair and helped make the evening special,

    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 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.

    we went for my honey's birthday, on the high recommendation for one of the best steak houses in boston. the apps of bacon and blue cheese and lobster and crab stack (sorry, forget the names) were delicious! very very good. the salad, greens and some tomatoes, was nothing special. although my crab cake was very good and my husband's steak was good but he felt the cut of meat was a bit tough. so there were some hits and some misses. the service too was fine, but there were some big spaces where we were looking for our gal for water, wine etc refills and a LONG lag between apps and mains. so for the price, we won't go back. when you spend over $200 for a meal you expect things to be pretty on par and this wasn't.
