Diner Reviews
  • "My daughter and I had lunch here before shopping for her Bridal dress down the street. The food was very good, fresh and tasty. The salad we felt was a little lacking as well as the dressings, but the pasta she ordered was perfect as well as my linguini and clams. The linguini was cooked to perfection. Our waiter Tony was very good and very helpful throughout our lunch. I ordered 2 pork chops to go for hubby at home and a few hours later he said they were some of the best he had ever had. Will definitely return. It is also nice that they are open for lunch. Sometimes it is hard to find a "nice place" to sit down and enjoy a nice lunch."

  • "Great neighborhood find. Food was excellent & it brought back memories of the Italian restaurant frequented by Tony Soprano where everyone knew everyone else. Very enjoyable!"

  • "For starters, a dozen icy cold oysters, briny and full bodied, just superb. Bone in filet mignon with herb rub always a hit with us. We ran into friends at La Griglia and recommended the bone in filet. After their meal, they thanked us for the great suggestion. I chose the crab cakes with beurre blanc sauce and side of broccoli rabe. LG is my go to place for (outrageous) crab cakes. Dessert was fabulous. Fresh blueberry semi freddo with puff pastry, a new item on the menu, was over the top. The wait staff is always attentive and considerate. Our waiter, Tony, made our dining experience a memorable one."

  • "We hadn't been to La Griglia in some time. We found the service to be extremely attentive and professional. Drinks and arrived quickly and we never felt rushed by our serving people. Appetizer was excellent as were the entrees. Prices were in line with other restaurants in this category and we will definitely make this a regular spot."

  • "I was impressed with how attentive and polite all of the staff was from the guys parking the cars to our waitress. One of my colleagues had recommended this for our business lunch and it turned out to have been a great choice. I had the price fix lunch which offered a great variety and was an exceptional value."

  • "Totally enjoyed the mussels appetizer along with briny cold oysters. The crab cake and ahi tuna appetizers our friends had were also a hit. Entrees of bronzino, soft shell crab, halibut and sauteed shrimp were cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and honored all requests. The Quintessa cabernet was excellent and enjoyed by all. Coffee and dessert completed a great meal."

  • "My husband and I dined at LaGriglia this past Saturday. We were seated upstairs, which we normally don't like, but we were well taken care of. (There were some crying children downstairs anyway.) Our waiter, Cesar, took great care of us. His service was very professional and attentive. The room filled up quickly, but the noise was not overwhelming in any way. We were very impressed with the Wine List. We split the Belgian Endive Salad, which was delicious. My husband ordered the Bone-In Filet, which he was a little disappointed with. I ate the Red Snapper, which was great. We split the sorbet trio for dessert. We would definitely eat there again."

  • "We dine often at La Griglia's where we can always count on a great dinner. The seafood specials like the Bronzino, Cod or Halibut are our favorite choices after having a dozen cold, briny oysters. My husband loves the filet mignon on the bone with hand rubbed seasoning. My go to dinner is the zuppa de pesce fra diavolo and I love the La griglia crab cakes, with a different twist on this seafood delight. The cakes are broiled, with a delicate consistency on the inside and served with a buerre blanc sauce. The servers and bussers are always on top of things and the service runs like a swiss watch. The wine list is outstanding. A must try for those who like great food and service."

  • "We made 8PM reservations and saw the place was packed - and lots of people waiting to be seated. However, we were taken to our table after about 10 minutes - I thought that was very acceptable, and worth the very minimal wait. We were seated on the second floor - much quiter and less frantic - perfect for our evening out. The food was excellent and the service was quite good. All in all, a successful evening out."

  • "We made reservations for 2pm on Mother's Day. When we arrived we were greeted and taken to our table. The restaraunt was empty for this time of day and being a holiday, there were plenty of open tables, however we were seated at the very last table in the back corner. My mom asked if we could have one of the other tables and the gentleman said they were reserved. Our server seemed annoyed and was very short with us, he seemed like he didn't want to be there. He wasn't very attentive and really only took our order and brought us the bill. None of the empty tables filled until we were leaving. I felt like a second class citizen. "

  • "We frequently dine at LG and find that our experience is always the same. The food is consistently wonderful no matter what you order. The service is seamless and always attentive. Wonderful breads and a mixed olive tray are presented at the table along with a nice olive oil for dipping. The wine list is extensive and many great wines, like Caymus cabernet, are available by the glass/quartino. "

  • "The food was mediocre at best had the braised short ribs found them to be stringy. The dessert was horrible, cheese cake that was round, cookie cutter type must have been frozen. I would have expected an upper class restaurant to have home made desserts or at least get them from a very high end bakery. Terrible. "

  • "Ambience is relatively quiet with a soothing atmosphere, tables are well spaced apart, staff is attentive but not intrusive, food is very good. Valet car park is well handled. "

  • "I moved from the area, and hadn't been to La Griglia in many years. It used to be our go-to place for an exceptional meal. I had some business in the area and decided to visit again. I booked a reservation on Open Table at around 12 noon on a Saturday and got a seating at 6:30 on a Saturday night. Perfect. Showed up and were seated immediately, delicious hot bread (always interesting) and excellent olives and oil and we're off to a good start. I ordered the chicken giambotta which used to be a favorite of mine, well being gone 10 years or so hasn't changed the quality and quantity of the food one bit. Service has always been a strong suit and it remains as attentive as ever. Desserts are worth leaving room for."

  • "Zuppa de pesce was spot on, halibut tender and fresh, oysters chilled and briny and sweet. A plate of garganelli cooked al dente, just perfect. The service was thoughtful and all requests met. A great time dining with family. We love it at La Griglia."

  • "Had a great birthday dinner including a group of 12 close friends & family. Diverse prix fixe menu offered excellent choices. Presentation and service was impressive. While a bit pricey, the experience was very well worth it. Though it was my first visit, this will be added to my list of regular spots for a quality dining experience."
