A word from Grille 54 - Citrus Park
You’ll be amazed when you try one of our entrees from the kitchen. It is an experience that is sure to please. Our Executive Chef Robert Scaffedi has over 10 years in the restaurant industry, including four years here at Grille 54. Many of our recipes come from his Grandmother, Maria, back in Italy. Allow him to prepare you one of his Italian Specialties, such as the Chicken Cordon Bleu, his twist on the Baked Penne, or his signature dish, the Vitello Scaffedi. Not in the mood for Italian? Try our Chilean Seabass, hand-cut in house, or maybe one of our U.S.D.A. Prime Steak selections. We cook everything with oak in our wood-burning grill.

    Table for our party of 7 was ready however wait staff didn't acknowledged our table. It took way to long to put in our drink orders. Food came out in a timely manner. The absolute worst experience was the way the server tossed a free birthday dessert on top of my mother in laws main course dirty plate and pushed a handful of spoons in her face. Bad, bad, bad!

    We had reservations for brunch for 6 people through open table. When we got to the location for brunch (5 minuets prior to our reservation time) the hostess tried to sit us in a booth that fits 4 and told us we would be comfortable. We asked to speak with the manager and the owner came over. He got an attitude saying he sat our reservation. He then walked away with no intention of fixing it. When one of the party members spoke with him again he advised us that he would see what he could do. Needless to say they ended up sitting us in a 6 person table and the server was good, but based on my experience with the owner I will not return to either Grille 54 location.

    Not bad, but not great for the price. The waiter recommended a great Pinot Noir. Husband ordered Fra Diavolo and it had no spice to it at all. Overall, disappointing but will give their extensive sushi menu a try next time. We will give it another try. Nice urban atmosphere in suburbia.

    Not only was the food and service amazing, but the staff at large is excellent at Grill 54. One of the chefs was unfortunately dragged into an issue involving an irate customer who'd had too much to drink, and he handled a nearly escalated situation with grace and class the entire time.

    Grille 54 is a great restaurant for casual dining with excellent food and service. A varied menu should have something for everyone. Steaks are perfectly seasoned and the fish was excellent! This is a must if you're in the Westchase area.

    I used to go to grill 54 on 54 , but was quickly turned off by the atmosphere was it a club a resturant. Could never tell I just knew I didn't like drunks dancing next to me while I ate dinner. I heard of the new grill 54 in citrus and checked it out. The wife and I love it!!! Food , amazing! Atmosphere great. Service great , it's clean , I see family's there I see couples I see old and young. Love it. Keep up the good work

    Me and my boyfriend dined there on Mondat for all you can eat crabs. A few weeks before that we had a terrible experience, but the general manager convinced us to come back and try them for a second chance. I'm glad we did. Food was great and service was superb. Bianca was our server and she was fantastic and really made the experience great. Id recommend her for service because she is on point. We will be back!

    My husband and I ate dinner here Saturday night with my stepson and his fiancé, and we were so disappointed. We have eaten here before and the food was always good (not great), but this time it was really bad! The rice tasted like it had been made the day before and then microwaved. My stepson and his fiancé couldn't even finish their meals because they were so bad. Usually there will be a manager at most decent restaurants who comes by to check on your dinner but we never saw a manager here. We wish we had just gone across the street to Outback and had a decent dinner for half the price with much better service! On a positive note though, their drinks are always really good and the bar staff is friendly and attentive!

  • Easter Brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Despite having reservations for 2:45 we checked in at 2:20 and were told there would be a 20-30 minute wait. We actually waited closer to 40 minutes but they were serving complimentary drinks. The restaurant was very busy - Easter Sunday - so by the time we were actually seated the food was a bit run down (as was the staff) and other than the sushi everything was just average. It also took almost 10 minutes for an omlette. On a positive note they were apologetic about the wait and only charged us the kids price for our daughter (age 15).

    First time I've been to Grill 54 for a brunch. Easter Sunday was the perfect day. My reservation was at 10:15am and my party was greeted with a smile and our server came quickly. Very friendly and upbeat and energetic!!! It made my dining more pleasurable. Food was awesome and a great selection of a variety of food. The restaurant filled up quickly and I love a crowd anyway. The mood was very pleasant. Great value for your money. I'll be going back for Mother's Day and already made my reservation!

    I've been to many places who claim to have all-you-can-eat crab legs but Grille 54 REALLY does it right. They are on top of things! Before the last leg is off the serving platter, the server is sliding another platter-full onto the table. At a very popular chain restaurant (which we will leave anonymous) you have to place your order for more the moment they serve the first tiny portion and sit and wait (with nothing to eat) until they get there. Grille 54 has that chain place beat...hand over fist with food quality, service, comfort, and atmosphere. Price is right too. Could very well end up being a Monday habit. Would be a shame to miss this so go check it out.

    My family and I always enjoy the brunch at Grille 54 in Citrus Park. The food is amazing. They offer many of the same things every week, but they also keep it fresh by adding new items like the eggs Benedict atop a fried green tomato. There are traditional breakfast offerings as well as a sea food buffet, and scrumptious desserts. We go for the custom omelets, and pasta. Overall, there is delicious food, excellent service, and great music. You can't go wrong here, if you want a nice treat on a Sunday!

    I enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. The food was decent and the variety of foods was adequate. I would recommend those in the neighborhood to check it out. Takeout is another issue. Decided to order calamari and fish tacos one night. Picked it up and took it home and it was the soggiest calamari I ever had, my friend's reaction after eating taco prevented me from trying it. I can't review it personally but he was disappointed. Won't do takeout again but would consider brunch.

    Interesting dining concept...sushi & Italian choices.. Much of the Sushi is creative/American (w/mayo or cream cheese). Waiter did explain the 2 kitchens & the possibility of the food not coming to the table at the same time. Eggplant stack & lobster taco apps were very good. No need to order the stuffed squash blossoms - they were oil-logged. The blue cheese/mushroom risotto that accompanied the steak was FABULOUS. Blackened mahi & the Chicken Beneveto were enjoyed. Sadly, the martinis weren't cold & very weak. Hostess was unaware that our rez was made via OpenTable, where we requested a quieter table. Only after we asked the manager for another table, did he realize that the table reserved was actually for us. We will return.

    After waiting over 20 minutes for our waiter to show up at our table he then blamed the hostess as to why he didnt know he had our table. Then we waited 15 min for our drinks. Then my spouses steak was brought out almost 20 min before my entree and he was almost done eating before my food arrived. Was looking forward to romantic dinner for months and will not be going back anytime soon.
