Among the best in San DiegoThere are better known more expensive restaurants in San Diego but you cannot go wrong with the Grant Grill, which is better than most of the others. The hotel is elegant and restaurant very tasteful without being pretentious. The food is presented beautifully and tastes as good as it looks. The only caveat is that the portions, particularly on the tasting menu, can be small to moderate -- they are more European in size rather than catering to the all too often American emphasis on quantity versus quality. The upside is that if you order a first course and a main course, you may have room for dessert and for the prix fixe you may want to order four courses if you're very hungry or have a large appetite. But then the bread is also good.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day Brunch.Food quality and presentation were first class! excellent service as well. Overall a 5 star establishment and experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant and ClubbyA creative menu is expertly executed, and is accompanied by a wide ranging wine list, served in a comfortable club-like setting in the historic US Grant hotel. I enjoyed a starter of risotto, generously laced with crab, and moved on to bergamot nuanced duck breast. The servers are a very helpful and friendly bunch, and there's none of the intimidition or "tude" that sometimes is associated with a restaurant of this formality and recognition. Despite their youth, they are knowledgeable about both kitchen and the cellar. There's also a small classic old hotel bar adjacent to the dining room, so if a meal here is not in the cards, this would be a good stop for the perfect martini.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding !!!Wonderful restaurant in a classic downtown hotel. We visited from out of state and found it through Open Table. It was a great evening and we will be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA great room with potential!A nice place. Great decor and service. Food was quite nice but when it comes to seasoning my wife and I agreed the chef needs to take more risk. Nothing was bad, but a bit bland. A nice looking platw which needed some personality to go with it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGrant Grill is wonderfulThe food was delicious, the service was excellent, the ambiance was delightful.

Our only complaint was the waiter took a little too long getting our dessert to us even though we told him we were attending the opera that night. After 20 minutes we were going to cancel and asked for the check but then he brought it to us right away.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic in all respects.Once in a while one finds a dining experience that far exceeds any rating system. Our dinner at Grant grill was one of those times. My wife stated it was probably one of the greatest evenings of her life. No special occasion, however the service and the music made it a special occasion. I would encourage any and all to make this one for your bucket list.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!The food was perfect!

Brenden was our waiter; he is outstanding in his service!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGrat PlaceAwesome place. Try the tasting menu, great deal. Duck was great and also the side of crab risotto.
Highly recommend this place.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis rating is based on myThis rating is based on my dinner experience only, because the several breakfasts and the one lunch I had there were very disappointing. For breakfast, the fruit was sour, the oatmeal was like soup, the toast was burned on the edges, the eggs were dry, the hashbrowns were undercooked. It was generally terrible, although the salmon and bagel were good. My repeat visits for breakfast were due to them being included with my hotel package. For lunch, the flatbread "pizza" had a terrible sauce that tasted like unseasoned canned tomato paste and the chicken was dry and poorly cut for the presentation. Dinner was an amazing surprise. The crab risotto was perfection and the duck had a nice flavor, although it was quite tough.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThey were great to keep leftoversThey were great to keep leftovers in fridge til we got back from spredkles theatre acrosss the street.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful breakfast selections!Wonderful breakfast selections!

The food is incredible and the service is amazing with great attention to detail. The chef's tasting menu is the best option to try many things without having tons of food to take home.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
