    We met friends to have a nice conversational dinner - however it was music night. The music was so loud we could not hear any conversation at all. It was good music - just way too loud for a small dining room.

    Good food - reasonable prices - great view in summer/fall - decorated well around the holidays. Always enjoy our time with friends there. My only complaint - dislike that they do not serve wine in (stemmed) wine glasses - I always have to ask for one. To be honest, sometimes that is the deal breaker when we choose to eat out somewhere else (it's that important!)

    I kind of struggle to find something new when it comes to an american grill restaurant, so I defaulted to the barbecue burger (Smoke and Spice Burger). The burger was excellent and I would definitely go there again just for that. What stood out the most to me though was the service. Every employee that was there was friendly and made us feel welcome. I particularly noted that our server glanced at our table and noticed we had not tried every piece of our meal and she waited until we had to come by and check that everything was ok. One final note, their seven layer desert is out of this world amazing. Size-wise I understand why they say it serves 2-3, but it was so good, I really felt I could have eaten the entire piece myself.

    My husband and I enjoy eating at different restaurants so we decided to try Girvan Grille. The service was excellent. We were seated promptly and our order taken in an appropriate time frame. The food however, was not excellent. All of the main entree choices were over cooked. My husband's "medium" burger was almost burnt. My pork medallions were very tough. The atmosphere was lively and friendly. Our table looked out onto the golf course. If the food was better, we'd definitely be back. I hope this was a one time mishap from the kitchen, otherwise, they are going to miss out on a large foodie clientele.

    This is our 2nd experience at Girvan Grille. Our food was mediocre at best, a step down from a year ago. The dining area is situated in a classic golf clubhouse with a nice view of the course (currently under construction). The staff was friendly, but poorly trained. This resulted in our wait person having to tell us that our dining card was not honored, because one of us had ordered a daily special and she was not aware of this policy for the card (the bill would have been the same if we had had a second regular entrée). This was a poor management decision, as we have plenty of other options to dine regularly and will not return. This is regrettable, given the great location and potential for a thriving business. Sorry Brooklyn Park.

    The prime rib special was excellent. A nice slice of prime (medium rare as requested) with hot a jus, horseradish, baked potato and fresh vegetables. The other order was the rib eye, one of the most expensive items on the menu. Unfortunately, it was only average. A little chewy and not as flavorful as we would have liked. The steak sauce is very tasty. I gave my review a 'very good' food rating based on the prime rib. Service was good.

    The old menu had wayyyy too many selections on it. Dead giveaway that most food would be mediocre. Now they reduced the menu but some of the things that were good are missing...like the crab cake. Food is still mediocre unfortunately. They should keep working on it! Its one of the nicer places in Brooklyn Park so it would be awesome if the food quality could go up.

    I made a reservation the day of for dinner. When I arrived I was told there was a waitlist, and it would be about a 45 minute wait, even with our reservation. There were some open tables here and there, but they were for other reservations apparently. If it really was a wait list then we should have been seated since a) we were actually there and b) I had an actual reservation. I would not have been bothered so much, because it was Father's Day so probably a busier day for them, but I was taking my 92 year old grandmother out for dinner. A call before hand would have been nice before we drove out there. The hostess was very polite and apologetic, but I don't think I'll try to come here again.

    Being that it was a Sunday evening, the restaurant was very quiet. Only two other groups present. Food was satisfactory and the server ill trained. Bread did not arrive until after the dinner was complete and we asked for the basket. The price of the food was reasonable. The bar tender and host are in the wrong business.

    Our cousins from CA were in town and we were looking for a nice place that was quiet enough for us to talk and catch up with folks we haven't seen in many years. The food is excellent and service is outstanding. They are attentive, but not obtrusive. This is one of our favorite places! Very reasonably priced.

    This is the 3rd year we have come to Edinburgh for Mother's Day brunch and we will not be back. Given the price - $26.95 each - I would expect a better tasting meal. The hot foods were all dry and overcooked. I could hardly eat the chicken or pork. The salmon was cold. I would have liked a pasta choice. The egg dishes were dry and tasteless. Where did the omelet station go? I don't eat beef; my family said the prime rib was good. We were ignored for at least 15 minutes after we were seated, and the mimosas came halfway through the meal. Overall it was a bad experience.

    We took our daughter there for her 23rd birthday. My husband ordered a beer and it took 20 minutes. We never got our bread, food was cold, we got the wrong soup. Didn't bring ketchup for the hamburgers. We have eaten there several times, but the server was a big problem. We told the hostess to have the waiter bring a dessert after our meal, but we only saw a check. Very disappointing-won't be back. Justin the server had one speed...slow. The pasta was bland and the chicken marsala had no sauce, only some mushrooms and the potatoes were dry. I was surprised to see a manager walking around, but never stopped to ask how everything was. I guess the worst part was, we wanted it to be special for our daughters birthday and it wasn't.
