    I made a reservation 30 minutes before dining. Still managed to keep us waiting for 16 minutes before getting a table and there was not a crowd waiting for tables. The first time I went to this restuarant the wait was 35 minutes so it appears they overbook.

    I have eaten here several times before. My parents eat here at least twice a week. Always had top notch service and food. We took a couple that had never been before. The first three beers and tequila drinks they ordered we were told they did not have that night. It was 7:30 on a Saturday May I remind you. Finally when a drink was ordered that they did have we had to ask our waitress twice if it was coming soon. She stated it was busy apologized for the lack of our chosen alchohol stating the girl in charge of ordering is obviously not doing her job. Upon ordering our dinner they were also out of several items. Must I remind you 7:30 reservation not 9:30. They should be prepared it is "season in boca" as we are all aware of. To top it off the other couple and I had both purchased for charity coupon books from grade school children. Spend $50 get $20 off. The manager refused to accept 2 coupons even with all of the mishaps. He was EXTREMELY rude. We had even opened separate checks. He even had the nerve to say enjoy your dinner but I understand if you do not return. This was of course after our dinner companion told him he would never return nor recommend the establishment to ANYONE. I have passed on this experience to my parents and their loyal patrons of Piñon Grille. What a loss of revenue and patronage from a very large group of influential Boca year round residents.

    We LOVE The Pinon Grill for Happy Hour....The main reason we go is because of their grilled artichoke...I can tast it long before we even enter the restaurant...We have brought several different couples with us and introducesd them to the HH and the artichoke...all have agreed with us...That is not to say that the other bar appetizers aren't also delicious...They bare all winners....and enough for a meal. We go back often. I am sorry to say that we have never actually eaten a meal there...but the skirt steak looks amazing. WE'll have to try it one night if not too full from Happy Hour. Every staff member we have encountered has been terrific...from the people at reception to the waiters and waitresses...

    This place never disappoints! My boyfriend and I come at least 2 times per year (Valentines Day & Birthday) and I ALWAYS order/devaour the Hawaiin steak with stacked potato hash for my entree, and bread pudding for dessert! Service is stellar, the ambiance is cozy. Looking forward to returning in February!

    We have been frequenting Pinon since it opened. There is not much new and the menu has essentially stayed the same. One thing that is disconcerting is because it is a "mall" restaurant there is no dress code and some people come dressed like "slobs" on a Saturday night. The noise level was high and there were many babies. My husband and I ordered "Bell and Evans" all natural chicken with cilantro key lime sauce (on the side). What came was a fiery inedible spice and pepper covered chicken. Since we were with others (who ordered other entrees) we did not want to make a fuss and took off the skin and tried to salvage some under the coating. Pinon could be a fine restaurant--it truly is a beautiful one but it is on the way down.

    Table was next to the extremely loud kitchen, which as Grand Lux did, must be closed off - somehow! Glass, a wall - something! Actually had a headache (which I don't get !) from the noise. We tried desperately to just hear our guests. Will never eat at any table near to that extremely noises kitchen. We prefer outside, but it was a cool night.

    We went to Pinon Grill last year and had a very good meal. Upon returning, we found the food very uneven. Steak and meatloaf were very good; parmesan potatoes tasted like paste and the crab cakes were full of filler. Vegetables were nothing special. Not sure that we would return.

    First time here. Read lots of good reviews and everyone I spoke with who had been here recommended, so I was very hopeful. My party of four all enjoyed our meals and dessert. One in our party is in a wheel chair so the booth with 2 chairs seating was perfect. Plenty of room between tables. Wonderful Ahi Tuna salad, yummy carrot cake and fantastic Cosmo. The server was very pleasant and friendly, if a bit unavailable. My friend didn't get his wine until after his dinner was served even though we all ordered at the same time. Looking forward to going back and sitting outside.

    This restaurant is consistently top notch in all categories. The food is excellent, service perfect and the ambiance is warm and inviting with all booth seating. On this occasion, I had the cedar plank salmon with sauteed green beans, one friend had the goat cheese salad and one friend had the nut encrusted trout. All three dishes were delicious and well received. We all enjoyed the wine selections as well.

    the moment we arrived the music was head pounding we asked to be moved to a quieter area but that was not better. we were informed that on wednesday and friday they now had live music. firstly that was not live music; secondly that was not music. odd waiter who when i ordered my chicken salad informed me that the chicken they use for this dish was leftover chicken from the night before; would i like to upgrade to chicken that was fresh. WHAT!!! our entire party including 2 teenagers were awestruck. One person at our table did not receive their dinner for 10 minutes after everyone elses. spare yourselves and DO NOT go to this place. Manager didn"t even seem to be concerned we were having an awful experience.

    Pinon was revamped since I visited 3 yrs ago. All the changes made are wonderful and expansive, allowing one to feel private, elegant and wonderful service. The only surprise was the menu not being as broad and unique as it was the first time. I would recommend this restaurant in every aspect and am sure they will fill in the blanks. Who ever made the changes is headed in a 5 star direction.
