Diner Reviews
  • "Once again The Grille 3501 was great. We sat down right away. The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and the specials. She was attentive but you did not feel as if someone were watching your every move. The food was terrific. My steamed mussels were delicious, a little spicy with the chorizo sausage. The abundance of fresh crab meat on top was an added bonus. My Filet Mignon was to die for. It was like butter. I could have cut it with my fork. My husbands pork belly appetizer was amazing and his entrée of short ribs was delicious. The portions are big but we ate every bite. Grille 3501 is consistently wonderful!"

  • "The food was very good and the service was great. There was a large party (20 people??) that came in and was rather loud making it somewhat difficult for us to have a private conversation. I would recommend large parties be located in a separate dining section if one is available. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed the meal. Plan to return."

  • "We went to Grille 3501 on a recommendation of a friend for a special occasion. We were very impressed at the food and service we recieved. I had crab cakes that were filled with crab. I am still wondering how they held together for frying because there was little else but crab. My date had the filet mignon and it was prepared to perfection. The atmosphere was cozy and very clean. Looking forward to visiting again."

  • "We were seated before our reservation. The Waitress was amazing. Food was well timed and we were never rushed into the next course. Food was hot, beautifully plated and was absolutely amazing. Just one of the best restaurants we have been to in Northeast PA."

  • "I was very impressed with Grille 3501. The food was excellant and the drinks unreal! I was pleased with the serving sizes, also. The overall ambiance is more modern, business like but did not take away from the overall atmosphere."

  • "Having tried some of the "better" places in the Lehigh Valley, this is definitely one of the best. The food was well prepared, well seasoned and the varied menu left one with multiple choices. A little pricey for this area, good atmosphere and wine list."

  • "Let me begin with the bread, just as we did prior to our awesome meal.if you are in search of that perfect crunch on the outside, yet chewy consistency inside, you have arrived. All five of us ordered a different meal and all were top notch, with the osso buco being the shining star. I don't think there could be a bad choice, however. We also shared two unusual and mouth watering desserts: limoncello cheesecake and dumplings."

  • "We were visiting my parents for Father's Day weekend and found Grille 3501 on Open Table. Every review I read told me we had to try this restaurant. So glad we did! Told my Dad I made a reservation at 3501 and he said "I've been there" and I said "so it's good!" Friendly greeting upon arrival, great waitperson who let us dictate our pace. Good cocktail options. I did not find a wine by the glass that I thought I would enjoy, however we inquired about taking unfinished bottles of wine out of the restaurant and there was no problem. Chose the sea bass special on Saturday night. It was excellent! Beautiful presentation with an incredibly tasty coconut macadamia sauce. I could say more nice things,but leave it at can't wait to return!"

  • "We six were pleased with our entree selections, great service and surroundings. Just seems odd why Grille 3501 doesn't have acoustic ceiling tiles as it was difficult to hear conversations at the table. Let's hope the new addition is quieter by utilizing the right materials. The food was delicious!"

  • "Met some old friends at the 3501 Grille; it was an excellent choice. A variety of sumptuous salads (ask to share!), we all chose seafood, rare Ahi tuna, salmon, fish of the day, etc. The accompanying vegetables wee superb. Everything was accomplished to perfection. "

  • "I am always impressed at the consistency of this restaurant. We come in often and every visit is just as good as the last one. The food is always prepared to order and perfect temperature. The delicious fresh baked bread is so good, served with olive oil and herbs. I love the mango crab spring rolls! The fish is always so fresh and the filets are melt in your mouth tender. The menu has a really nice selection of entrees that offer choices of healthy food. The desserts are also delicious and unique. This is really a quality establishment that has always delivered the same goodness every time I go."

  • "You can stick with old favorites or you can be adventurous. Either way you can't lose since the food is fabulous and the staff is very accomodating. The bar has a variety of specialty drinks and the soups and specials are always a good choice. Shrimp bisque and Hawaiian sea bass were tops at my last visit. You can bet that my wife and I will be coming back routinely."

  • "Grille 3501 is one of the best restaurants in the Lehigh Valley. It's our family's place to go for special occasions. The food is always inventive and delicious. The prices are in line with other fine dining establishments in the area. One of my favorite treats is the martini sampler-a carrier of 3 mini martinis with a fun selection to choose from. My entire extended family highly recommends it."

  • "While not the cheapest place in the LV, 3501 is definitely worth it, especially given the many restaurants that charge similar prices and serve dressed-up garbage. Wonderful menu that always will have you come back for more- our favorites apps are the steamed mussels, which features a wonderful wine/garlic/sausage, etc. base and the tuna tartar, among others. We have tried many entrees and they are all hits, especially any type of beef dishes as they are usually cooked excellently with wonderful sauces. I prefer seafood and I am never disappointed. You will enjoy."

  • "The "girls" have been touring the Lehigh Valley's restaurants for a night out for the past several months now. Grille 3501 was our pick for May. The ambience was extraordinary, we thought we were in NYC! Food presentation and taste was delectable to say the least (we all sample share)! Martini list has a nice variety of dinner and after dinner drinks (try the Fireside). This dining experience will make you feel special, I know we all did! Yummy points I give you the restaurant a 10! Prices would be considered high for families unless it was for a special occasion. Having said that, our dinners were well worth the price! "

  • "The food is excellent . It was very crowded for a Tuesday because a large group was there and a bit loud but the food made it worthwhile "

  • "Great dinner! We ordered the butternut squash dumplings and crab cakes for appetizers. One of the best crab cakes I have eaten (actually has a lot of crab instead of being filled with a lot of breading). For dinner I ordered the short ribs. My dad ordered the filet and my mom ordered the sea bass. We all loved our meals and we will go back again! "

  • "Went with my nephew on the recommendation of a friend. After reviewing the menu, we were intrigued by so many of the appetizers we decided to just have them. So we ordered 4 which turned into 5, and a bottle of wine. We apprised our waitress of our time constraints because we were catching a show at Civic Theater. She was attentive and thoughtful enough to space the serving of our dishes appropriately while keeping track of the time. The food was exquisite, delicious and even exciting. The Foie gras, the best I've had in a long time, as well as the pork belly and grits. Wonderful experience, can't wait to go back and have the entrées. "

  • "Visiting Muhlenberg College we found this gem nearby. The restaurant is under renovation but the kitchen is putting out some great food. This place rates up there where the better eateries live. Service was wonderful. We had steak, fish and chicken and all were delicious and artfully served. If your in or near Allentown, PA, this is where yu want t o eat."

  • "Food is great. Atmosphere is not. Close tables. People sitting close to each other. Looking at a wall. No decor on walls, etc. I only think you can charge your prices if both food and atmosphere are tops! Sorry."

  • "Wife and i go about once a year just to change it up a bit. Not much to choose from in Allentown. Food is good to great;ambience needs update; service great; prices are laughable(city prices in Lehigh Valley). As i mentioned, im glad its around. Im afraid if the area had more choices for high quality dining, this place would not make it."

We ordered mixed drinks, appetizers, entrees, and desserts and no one was disappointed. I would consider this a very fancy place, the food is expensive, but worth the money! Even the bathrooms are lovely."

  • "We have never been disappointed with the food at 3501. They change the menu enough to keep it interesting. They made some changes to the acoustics which is an enormous help. The service is always excellent. The only shortfall is waiting room if your table is not ready. The locals at the bar make it difficult to find a seat by placing their coats on empty stools and refusing to move them even when you explain you are just waiting for your table."
