Grille One Sixteen-Carrollwood
Upscale and DeliciousFirst time here - my boyfriend and I brought our mothers for Mother's Day. Our meal was fantastic. I had the Sea Bass topped with crab and spinach and I ate every morsel. It was $230 for 4 people... that included 2 glasses of wine, one appetizer (Tuna tartar... amazing), and 4 dinner entrees. Pricey for us, but def a good special occasion place. Ambiance is great, very pretty inside.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb service!I have been to Grille 116 a number of times, so I made reservations for my Dad and me when he came in town for a visit. The food us always good, but what stood out was the exceptional service. The staff work as a team, making sure that water glasses are never empty and dishes are cleared after each course immediately. Everyone is friendly, from the hostesses and wait staff to the managers. Unlike many restaurants where you never see a manager in sight, there were two on this particular evening and both were attentive to the customers and to their staff. This is a well managed establishment and it shows.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and wineExcellent service and wine selections. The food was great too !4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was the finestThe service was the finest I have experienced! The manager as well as the hostesses "Snow" and "Kendal" were gracious and accomodating, granting every request to make my wifes birthday a memorable experience. Our server, "Joseph" was on his game and was outstanding! Great sense of humor and very helpful, taking special care of our every request.
Unfortunately, there was a "guest" behaving like a 4 year old. Saying he was "making a scene" is waaaay too nice! My only regret is that I didn't bend him over my knee and spank him like the deserving little baby he was. The staff at Grille One Sixteen in Carrollwood is too good to be treated like that! Even if it's a "paying" customer. Which I'm sure this sorry S.O.B. didn't pay his tab.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasionGreat ambiance with contemporary modern decor. It is the perfect place for a nice evening out with friends or a special occasion. The food was excellent and portions were moderate. It gets a bit pricey by the time you add side dishes and toppings for the steak, but the side dishes are enough to share. Our waiter was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The first thing we were impressed with was the menu. The menu lights up as soon as you open it. No reading glasses necessary! Definitely save room for dessert, and try the freshly made donuts.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, but the large TV's in the dining area are a distraction. Ok in the Bar but not in the dining area.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM!Our server was excellent. Try the donuts, they are amazing.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
