Very nice restaurant
Food was very good considering the price. I expect a little more when the restaurant is in this price range so I did not rate it outstanding. Service was outstanding and we were well attended to.

I hosted a dinner for some clients while I was attending a conference at the Westin attached to the Galleria in Dallas. I couldn't have been happier with my choice of restaurants for this dinner. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. At the recommendation of our server, 3 out of 5 guests selected the double cut pork chop cooked to the chefs recommended temperature and it was the best cut of pork that I ever had. In my opinion, you cannot go wrong by choosing to dine at The Grill on the Alley.

Waiter was generally good with his service and attentive, but likely inserted himself into the conversation or made comments that could have been taken the wrong way. I have an easy going nature so it didn't bother me, but i can see that it could come across wrong to others.

Steaks are delicious...
It's so hard to find a good steak cooked by people who know how to cook them. I'm a rare, Pittsburgh kinda guy... And the Kansas City strip I had was perfect. It was kinda slow, which was nice for us... I could see it being much louder when busy. Service was impeccable. Will definitely be back.

Convenient and quiet, nice place to chat while you dine!

Great business lunch spot
This is one of my favorite places for a private business lunch. The food is consistently very good and the servers know how to meet your needs without being invasive. They know when to appear and disappear. You and your colleagues can hear yourselves speak despite the activity of the surrounding tables.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staff was excellent and very helpful. It was a business lunch so we were able to talk and could hear each other. We each had salads and were very pleased and plenty to eat.......our waiter was great! We will be back!

Perfect for a business lunch
Looking for a great place to take a client or prospective client? This is it. The food is top notch, service is great without being over the top, and it's priced appropriately too. The management takes great care to match your seating and waitstaff to your needs. The Executive Chef met us at the door and seated us himself. Clients will be impressed.

ALWAYS TOP NOTCH
The Grill on the Alley is always top notch in service, food and atmosphere. The menu is varied and unique. The service is always attentive without being intrusive. I am always made to feel like a valued guest.

It's expensive , and everything
It's expensive , and everything is pretty much a la carte (in the $40++ per entre range). I had the Lamb which was cooked to perfection, my husband had the special - the steak with crab and bernaise sauce - also excellent. This place can get really noisy so I would aim for mid-week. Because the hotel is next door (the Westin Galleria), it's a good place for business lunches and dinners but be sure to ask for a table away from the bar or entrance or you won't be able to hear yourself talk. Think they could do better with the wine list.

My go to spot for business lunches
This has become a go to for business lunches. The timing of the servers of when they do and don't come to the table is always perfect. The food is great and the place is nice without being stuffy.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great experience
We have been to the Grill several times and always have a good experience.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have always enjoyed the steak and seafood there. The prime rib dinner was especially wonderful. It is not on their daily menu and it was a Sunday special for July. I hope they continue. It was fork tender and delicious.

Highly recommend The Grill
My daughter and I were visiting Dallas to shop and dine for the weekend. We really are happy that we had dinner at The Grill at the Dallas Galleria mall. The decor and service were outstanding. Food presentation and taste were memorable. We spent almost $200 so would consider it a special occassion place to have dinner. Would visit again.

Impressive Business Lunch Spot
I kicked August off by having lunch here with a business associate who had never been in before. A Charlie Palmer then I ordered the Shrimp Louie salad special, served al fresco. The giant shrimp were butterflied over a bed of crisp greens with all the accoutrements & a fresh thousand island dressing. Cold, refreshing and perfect in the Dallas heat.
This property has a stunning bar with the 10-foot tall black & white photographs, the dark wood and black granite, it is my favorite interior in Dallas.
In addition to business lunches, I love to come in mid-afternoon for coffee with business associates. It's quiet, you get fine service and it's a business conducive environment.
Ask for JP, he's 1/2 Irish, 1/2 Italian, and all Southern charm.

Delightful Sunday Brunch
This was the 2nd of my three visits so far this month to the Grill on the Alley. In for an early-afternoon, Sunday brunch.
Started with a Mimosa in a beautiful, sunny booth by the north-facing windows. I had the eggs Benedict entrée with a side of avocado to pair with the garden fresh tomatoes. My guest had the turkey melt, which they said was delightful... Hum. The food here is all delightful, as is the service. Chef Winan runs a tight ship. This is a fine dining experience that is predictably, and consistently on the mark. The wait staff is intuitive, friendly when you engage them, and non-intrusive other-wise. A nice complement to the praise-worthy food and elegant atmosphere. They also have a delightful Sunday evening Prix Fixe menu.

Great service, fabulous food
Everything about this restaurant is top notch. Service, quality of food. Really enjoyed being here for Restaurant Week. It was not a watered down or "skimpy, just for restaurant week menu". Their 4th course meal was the same great appetizer they have on their prime menu. The filet with the blue cheese crust was perfect. I never considered this one of Dallas' top notch steak houses, so I was very impressed.

It was a nice place; my wife and I enjoyed our dinner there to celebrate my birthday. It was a little pricey, but a great experience.

Five stars are hard to come by
This property has long been one of my favorites. It is a relatively hidden gem here in Dallas. For years I have gone in for their Happy Hour specials; not the drinks, the food. Their chicken pot pie is one of the most amazing dishes in town & I love the fresh fruit & produce in the bar recipes.
In for restaurant week and had one of the best steaks I have had in a year. Interestingly, it was paired with what I believe was a whipped golden potato/sautéed spinach side dish. I've been disappointed by underwhelming side dishes during restaurant week at several of the metroplex's is most outstanding restaurants. That did not occur here. They got the details right, all the way down to the key lime pie. Ask for Aaron at night or JP during the day.

Home of a great steak
When you're heading to Texas, you have to plan on finding a good steak house and enjoying some of the prime beef this state is famous for. We found the Grill on the Alley via Open Table while driving down 635 and were rewarded with an experience that will certainly bring us back here again. The bone-in New York special was exactly the juicy, flavorful, perfectly cooked masterpiece I was looking for, and a memorable hightlight of the trip. Our thanks to Daniel Winans, Executive Chef & GM, for an experience worthy of keeping his business card in my "go here if you're there" recommendations Rolodex.

I have to hand it to The Grill!!!!!!
Showed up for lunch and forgot my credit card at home. I asked my wife to send me a picture of the card and The Grill was kind enough to process the bill by verifying my credit card with my license..............really saved me from looking bad in front of my client!

Wow! Unexpected find. This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. The steaks are tender and tasty. We will be back with our dinner group.

Dinner out w/friends-gluten free
We loved the quiet, the excellent food and service, and the fact that a gluten free menu was offered as I have celiac disease. Plan to come often. Scallops to die for.

Good place for a business dinner
The food, service and ambiance were great and it was quiet on a Monday evening so it was easy to talk to everyone at our table.

From start to finish The Grill on the Alley made use feel welcome. Food was excellent and the service was very good; will definitely return in future. We have been here multiple times and everything we have ordered has been prepared wonderfully and they have an extensive wine list that should please most diners. The restaurant's decor is very classic but chic. The staff is well trained and ready to make your dining experience one to remember.
