    The menu is interesting with a good selection of entrees without being exasperatingly long. Service was among the best in town. A tad on the pricey side but not extravagant, justified by the great food.

    I was expecting a lot from grille 29 and it failed to deliver. We had the NY Strip and 8 Oz Filet, both were tough and dry (cooked medium) and really tasted like something I'd get from Applebee's. The sides were undercooked and just awful, they really tasted like frozen microwaved sides. I will never go back there and wish someone warned me. For the price it was the worst meal I've ever paid for! The only redeeming quality was the good service provided by the wait staff.

    Since this was to celebrate our 43rd anniversary, technically that's true. Decided to try a place we never tried before and we hit a home run. Located in a vibrant area I had never seen, our whole dinner experience at Grille 29 was a joy. Service was first rate, and I really appreciate how they offer to give you a small taste of a wine you are considering but have never tried to see if you like it. We ordered an array of courses and not one weak link amount them. Normally I would point out what was good, but in this case, what was not? I tried to come up with something I could complain about but the only thing that comes to mind is why I waited so long to try the place. It won't be our last visit.

    This is our number one choice when we visit Huntsville on business. The food is always exceptional. The scallops with grits and vegetables were out of this world. I always love the 29 grille salad with salmon, it makes a nice meal. The menu is varied which is also perfect for a large group.

    29 is our "go to" spot for most every type of occasion - out of town guest, girl's day out, Saturday lunch, business meeting, celebrations. The restaurant is diverse & food is consistently great & well presented. This time however, food was very salty despite my request for low sodium & service mediocre. Waiter forgot to fill requests, was not attentive to refilling waters & did not check in as often. We have experienced great service here from other wait staff with attention to detail. Perhaps there were issues going on behind the scenes ie. low staffing that night or our waiter was not feeling well. Waiters are human too. This will not prevent us from returning, but perhaps management needs to refresh their training program.

    My wife an I were in town celebrating our wedding anniversay and had consulted Trip Advisor to find a top rated dining spot. Grille 29 was highly rated and lived up to its billing. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our server was courteous and attentive to our needs. If we return to Huntsville, we will make a stop here again.

    My husband & I chose Grille 29 to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. When we arrived they had a special table reserved just for us. On the table was an anniversary card signed by the staff & inside was a $10 gift card to be used on our next visit. The service was outstanding and food was beyond delicious! We can't wait to go back, use our gift card and eat some more wonderful cuisine!

    Dining out has so many variables to it that one thing alone can cause it to go sour. The combination of ambiance, quality of food, and service are usually the ones that make it or break for us. This week the service by Jen was outstanding. Her efforts alone and maybe the chocolate souffle knocked out of the park.

    Make a point to ask for Jamie at Grille 29!! The service was as phenomenal as our food...and that was TOP NOTCH!! Our table had an amazing variety of entrees for each of us to "try out". However, prior to the entrees, we had the fried green tomatoes with jalapeno coleslaw, to die for! The firecracker shrimp was wonderful too! Then for the main courses...the potato crusted halibut, flaky and amazingly delicious! The 8 oz filet, cut it with my butter knife before realizing I had a steak knife! (Didn't need the steak knife) The Cajun pasta and shrimp, perfectly spiced. The Tuscan grilled chicken, incredible flavorful and juicy! And the grand finale... we shared (fought over) the chocolate peanut butter truffle!! Eating outdoors was nice!

    A very enjoyable dining experience, without being ridiculously pricey. The halibut cheeks were delicious, and the molasses bacon glaze was so good we were inspired to go home and try to recreate it! The Chilean sea bass was also quite good, but not quite as awe-inspiring. We shared a slice of cinnamon amaretto cheesecake for dessert that was just divine - creamy, sweet, melt in your mouth yumminess! Our waiter was excellent with recommendations and with his service. My only negative comment would be the amount of service traffic that went by our booth in the course of the evening. Apparently we were seated on the main corridor of traffic from the kitchen, which was a bit distracting at times. Otherwise, all was great and we will be back!

    As always--a great dining experience. Chocolate soufflé is worth it by itself--in fact with such generous portions, dinner and dessert is too much; either share a dessert or just go for late night drink and dessert. One of few restaurants in Huntsville where you can talk if you request a "talking alcove".

    I have no complaints regarding the restaurant itself. The food was excellent, and the service was prompt and attentive. Everything was prepared exactly as described, and medium-rare meant medium rare. My only issue has nothing to do with the restaurant itself but two of the patrons. Listen, I get that parents deserve a night out as well, but Grille 29 is supposed to be a somewhat nice restaurant where people can enjoy a relaxing night out. Don't bring your infant to dinner there at 8pm and then ignore him when he's bawling his head off. It's just not appropriate to force the entire restaurant to listen to your baby cry for thirty minutes. Take him outside and get him calmed down at the very least, don't just let him cry.

    Me and my wife frequent Grille 29 for dinner the past 4 years when attending plays and concerts. We've been to many of the better restaurants in and around Huntsville but we always refer back here. We treat it as a special date type of place but it could a great neighborhood spot for lunch and fine casual dinning. The service has always been the best and I base the comment on the consistent performance of maybe 40 visits. I took my business group here for a special event (32 people) and the experience was just great. My team and bosses were all complementary of the experience.

    My wife and I went to Grille 29 for the first time this weekend. Our server was Christian. The service was perfect. Ask for him. My wife had the crab cakes. They look like they were made in a muffin pan. Tops burned a little. Seasoning was good. We should have said something but didn't. If you are used to the lump crab cakes at Bonefish, you will be disappointed. Avoid them. I had the pork chop. It was good but nothing special. The creamed spinach was very tasty. The star of the night was the white corn cheese grits. My wife wouldn't stop reaching across the table to eat my grits. If they had shrimp and grits on the menu, we would be regulars.

    We choose to eat here for our anniversary. This is not a good choice for a special occasion. The restaurant has the feel of typical large corporate restaurant ( ruby Tuesdays, etc). It was overpriced for the quality of the food. We both ordered the from the chefs special ( sea bass and New York strip). The sea bass was pretty good, but the steak was overcooked, tough and a very poor cut of meat. My husband ordered it medium rare. The tuna appetizer was good. Our waitress was very scarce the entire evening. She never removed all of the menus from our table and kept saying she would be back to clean up our table. We will not be going back. We don't mind spending 100-200$ on dinner when it is worth it, but this was not worth it.

    My in-laws were in town so we took them to Grille 29 for a nice evening out. The atmosphere was nice, the service was good, but I was underwhelmed by the food. All of us got steak and everyone's was over cooked and the flavor was no better than a typical chain restaurant. I got the Oscar topping and it was completely devoid of flavor. Thankfully we splurged for deserts and salvaged the meal. Next time I think we'll go somewhere else and maybe just swing by for a desert at the bar.

    This is one of my favorite places to dine. The food is always cooked to perfection and the atmosphere is outstanding. I ordered the Grille 29 salad and added grilled salmon...all of the ingredients provided a healthy, fresh, tasty, and filling meal. We added the creme brulee trio for dessert for the table. It was nothing short of AWESOME! Thank you for giving us a pleasant atmosphere along with the delicious food. It is always a wonderful dining experience.
