Another great dining experience
Another great dining experience at the City Grill. If you don't care about the quality of food, you just won't appreciate this amazing restaurant. Such a great atmosphere and the food is absolutely delicious.

Gem in Downtown Windsor
I am a foodie and travel around the world dining. On every trip I research restaurants and have reservations set before I even book my flights. Honestly, they had their issues when they first opened but they have worked very hard and have fixed all of their issues. I would put City Grill up against anything that I have found. A must try in downtown Winds

Ate at The City Grill for
Ate at The City Grill for Easter brunch. I gather they only do brunch on special occasions. Restaurant is normally quite nice but they decorated a little for Easter which my wife thought was very nice. Buffet selection was very good and the food was excellent. Service was attentive.

Great place for a business lunch
We had a very important business lunch and decided to go to the City Grill.They set us up at a table upstairs .The place was busy yet the service was attentive yet concerned about our business discussion that was taking place.Our waiter was very professional .When the food arrived it was hot and very tasty.Everyone had a different dish and all really enjoyed their food .

Energetic, interesting food/drinks
Excellent food and decor, nice drinks menu. The Pelee Island Breeze cocktail is good. The server was a bit too obsequious and interrupted many times to make sure everything went well. The place is very noisy, both in terms of music and conversations. I would not have enjoyed it very much if I had tried to have a conversation with someone across from me. I would heartily recommend this place for the food, drinks and quality of service if you're either alone or a larger party.

Second time in 3 days - even better
Kudos for Stephanie, who waited on us with great wit and patience, even though one of my friends tended to be a little over the top with his flirting compliments.
The entire staff was great. I like the way multiple servers contribute to bringing everything the table needs in a timely manner.
The duck combination (magret & confit) entree was perfectly done. The grilled scallops appetizer was extremely tasted and nicely accompanied. The Graffigna Malbec accompanied the duck very well.
A few days ago, on a week-end day, the noise would have been a problem for a business conversation, but tonight (Tuesday) the restaurant was quieter and the atmosphere was great.

We found the overall cost for the brunch was much too high. The food was great, service was outstanding also, but to charge $32 a person for a brunch was outrageous. I would not charge more than $25 a person and $10 for children 10 and under. They simply do not eat enough for such a high charge. Again, the food was great but comparing to other places we have been it does measure up but the prices do not. Also, the way the Buffet was set up for the omelette station was way too small and way too slow! My son and I waited at least 15 minutes for our omelettes to be done while my husband had already begun eating and gone up twice before we even sat down. Should have more cooks on tat station.

went for mothers day brunch and my mom, a foodie, was very impressed. She was so satisfied that she looked up the regular menu online and has already chosen her next meal!
I am a regular and always have a good meal and good times

Went to The City Grill for Mothers Day Brunch and didn't know what to expect. There were danishes, salads, pasta salads, seafood, potatoes, prime rib, tenderloin, egg station, and belgian waffles to name a few. The food was to die for especially the lobster mac and cheese. The Chef was constantly in the dining area to make sure food was stocked and if not he got more out within minutes. The staff was fantastic accommodating anyone who needed any assistance. I would definitely return to The City Grill for a brunch again!

Great spot downtown
I met friends for lunch at The City Grill - none of us had been there before. It was
a beautiful space and the food was excellent. Service very attentive. All in all, I
would recommend it to anyone.

Ver Comfortable Dining experience
I liked the coaches outside and the free internet while you where waiting for your food also the pasta was truly homemade and I can't say to many places do this these days. The service was great and the food was awesome and not a bad price for what I got.

My husband has Celiac's Disease
My husband has Celiac's Disease and dining out can be stressful. Our waitress was friendly and helpful about our special needs and did not make us feel uncomfortable. They have a menu with items that can be modified to be gluten free noted. The food was excellent and sangria was awesome. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanks to all staff at The City Grill who helped to make our dinner a very special night. We had a celebration dinner for my Daughters graduation. Five of us dined - the food, service was simply outstanding. I have eaten at the City Grill on numerous occasions and can honestly say I am more impressed with each experience. The most creative menu in Windsor, the best decor outstanding service.

I have dined at TCG about three times a month since they opened and I am always marked by the consistency of the service, the ever-evolving menu and what a well-designed restaurant can look like. Style and urbanity aside, it always feels friendly and personable, never hitting anything near pretension.
I had a late dinner with two old friends a few nights ago and, despite arriving past 9pm, never felt rushed and all was on point. We shared a medley of appetizers ( with the harvest peach salad and mussels being my faves), my gluten-free halibut was well-prepared and a shared creme brûlée was definitely one of the finer ones I have had outside of Montreal.

We have never been disappointed with City Grill. The food selection is always changing and always excellent quality. The service couldn't be better. We have made this a regular place to eat.

Great First visit
My husband and I had dinner Saturday evening at the City Grill for the first time. It was recommended by colleagues and friends as a great venue for wonderful food and great service. The evening lived up to our expectations. We highly recommend this restaurant. PS it is a lovely touch to have downtown parking be taken care of by the restaurant - one of the reasons we tend to not frequent some downtown restaurants is due to the parking challenges. Kudos all around!

My steak was cooked to perfection..
My steak was cooked to perfection.. Only reason I gave 4 stars was the parmesan truffle frites were not as good as i expected. My wife had the Buttermilk fried chicken and it was really good. Would have been nice if it was boneless, but nonetheless very solid meal.

Best of Experiences
I was most pleasantly impressed with the food - I never had such tasty potatoes.
All the staff were very courteous, friendly and professional. My date and I had
a most enjoyable time. It was her first time. She was also impressed. We hope to
return soon for another great total experience

I cannot say enough nice things about The City Grill.
The food was excellent. The ambiance was definitely urban chic while still maintaining a relaxed casual vibe.
Above all, the service was outstanding. I placed a reservation using OpenTable. Upon arrival, we were greeted by staff that were prompt and friendly. The wait staff was able to answer our questions regarding the menu as well as drink selections.
This doesn't get mentioned often in reviews - but the wash rooms were impeccably clean and pleasant.

Really enjoyed the seafood platter. It was incredible. Scallops also fantastic. Great service too.

Fantastic. Solid service and exceptional food. Best in Windsor.

Entertained friends from Toronto. In their words "this place would fit right in on Bloor Street". Food, service and ambiance all outstanding. Nice touch when chef came by to check on table. There is not a better all around dining experience in Windsor.

Not the right atmosphere for an intimate occasion such as an anniversary. Very loud. Much better for larger groups.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
What I love about this restaurant is that it is consistently good all the time. The food and service never disappoint. There is no doubt this restaurant sets a new standard in dinning for Windsor . I hope they canaintain it.

Good food slow service
Our server had a bit of an attitude and was rushing around like it was packed. ( which it wasnt) She gave me a strange look when I asked for lactose free cheese on the cheese platter then brought some.. she needs to be more sensitive to food allergies.
We came at 6 and left at 745 We had to get to a concert so this was very slow service for a restaurant with not many customers..
We all enjoyed our meal though.

Exceeded my expectations, very well priced. Would definitely return next time in Windsor

I always read reviews of restaurants before dining at the establishment. In the case of the City grill I have eaten there numerous times and they are constantly great. This place has their act together. They are able to do things that others in the city can't or don't know how to do. What I am confused about is several of the reviews talk about 'pricy'? i am completely baffled by this. Maybe people don't get out much but the pricing at TCg is as good as if not better then major chains! The major difference however is that you are getting creative, freshly prepared food. Keep it up TCG. You set a new standard for up-scale casual dining.

Food & venue
Venue was nice. Good ambiance lighting. Perfect for special occasion / date night.
We celebrate my birthday with my husband & two teenage sons.
Food was good. Portion is bit a small for the price.
Seafood chowder was good.
I had potato crusted halibut. 2 small piceces of halibut with crusted potato breading. Bits of pieces of beets, carrot, green peas and splash of green pea sauce.
My husband had duck ravioli. Portion was good, taste was OK.
My sons had lamb. For him, portion was small, not much meat.
My other sons had wild boar osco bucco. For him, portion was OK.
My sons had creem brulee cheese cake. It was OK.

Great Starters and Desserts
Tuna tacos with wasabi cream were great. Also enjoyed the calamari with asorted greens and vegetables. The lobster done three ways was excellent and the portions were generous.Unfortunately the potato crusted halibut was overcooked and dry.I wish I had selected a different entree.Desserts especially the red wine poached pear were delicious. The service was very good and attentive.The noise level especially from the bar area was very loud and distracting at times. The major drawback to this restaurant at dinner is the noise level.Everything else is in the very good to excellent category and it remains one of the very best restaurants in Windsor.
