Everything was very good.
Everything was very good. i liked that they did not charge a corkage fee for the bottle of wine I brought. Nice romantic setting. Food was good adn prepared correctly. Only wish they had fresh bread.

Very Pleasant Experience
Very Pleasant-I would recommend coming here for a first or second date experience. The table seating was difficult to sit close to my husband but overall we enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Great 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.

Great for special occasion
Great 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.

The service was the finest
The 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.

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.

Upscale and Delicious
First 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.

Although it does not look like much from the outside, it is breathtaking on the inside. The staff was very helpful, and food excellent.

After the food arrived...
Everything was going great then after the got there - the waiter checked - my husband ordered a second glass of wine and we never saw him again until we asked the bus girl to get him. We might have gotten desert but we just paid and went home. We like this restaurant but that was not a good experience. We will go back.

I wanted to share some positive feedback! I always have enjoyed Grille One Sixteen but I think last night was the best ever. Joseph provided exceptional service (as usual) and all 6 of our dinners were outstanding. Please pass my compliments along to your staff to let them know customer really do appreciate their efforts.
The email I sent to the owner prior to this survey

I took my Mother and Father
I took my Mother and Father to Grille One Sixteen for Fathers' Day and it was the first time there for both of them. The wait staff seemed to go out of their way to accomodate my parents and made them feel very comfortable and the food, as always, was excellent and I know my parents really enjoyed the whole experience. My husband and I have been coming to this location since it opened for special occasions and holidays and will continue to do so for as long as the restaurant is here. Thank you Grille One Sixteen for yet another pleasant dining experience.

Perfect special occasion place
Went for a special occasion and it was definitely the perfect place to go. I found it online and didn't know what to expect. It was definitely the perfect place to go. The food it's a little expensive but its totally worth it and the cocktails are also amazing.

A delightful find
The ambiance is upbeat and upscale. It was an unexpected treat of sophistication, attentive service
and amazingly well-prepared food. The steaks are in a class of their own.

Good food and good service.
Good food and good service. As always a bit loud but not uncomfortably
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have yet to have a bad meal here! From the appetizers, through the main course to the fantastic donut dessert we are never disappointed. I would recommend this place over and over. The lobster tails are amazing and chilean sea bass is incredible.

My husband and I ALWAYS enjoy our experience at Grille 116. The food is exceptional, the decor and ambience always chic, and on this particular visit, we had spectacular service. Our server, Michael, was upbeat, attentive, and knowledgable. He was easy going and knows how to make us feel welcomed. He even remembered us from the last time we were there and he wasn't our server!
Grille 116 is our favorite restaurant and we are ecstatic to have met Michael. From now on, we will special request him whenever we make a reservation at Grille 116 on Open Table!

We have come on several occassions to celebrate employee birthdays and each time its been a great experience. We love coming here.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Primarily the staff & service was superb! They helped me surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. It made our experience so much special. Although there is a limited menu (not much chicken options) the food was delicious. Highly recommend the Kona Steak! It's a busy environment but not loud at all, very NYC or Miami. A little pricey but well worth it!

Great food but very noisy
When we first arrived at Grille One Sixteen, there were many people at the bar, which was part of the main dining room. The noise level was extremely high and techno music was playing. It took a while for our waiter to "find" us, and we almost got up and left. We were very glad we didn't, because once we ordered and our food and beverages began arriving we were in for a treat. The food was exceptional and the service was above average. We were there for a romantic anniversary celebration. I wouldn't call this restaurant "romantic." because of the noise. However, the food made up for it in the end.

Great Birthday Evening
Courtney was our waitress and did an outstanding job. We asked alot of questions regarding the menu as it was the first time for several of us. She was great and answered alll of our questions then gave us more time to decide. We were not rushed at all. The restaurant is a pleasant surprise for those of us who usually go to South Tampa for good food and great service.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the place from the minute we walked in. Very trendy cool scene. Drinks are amazing with fresh juices and mixology recipes. Staff are super friendly and genuine. The Nueske bacon appetizer was oaky, hot, thick, chewy and wonderful. Booth was very cozy with padded white nagahyde type nip and tuck walls. Service was friendly and outstanding. Husband's chicken was fantastic, free range no antibiotics, oak grilled yummy. I had seared tuna salad. The spicy peanut dressing was so spicy and there was too much. My mouth was on fire and I didn't eat it. Wasn't sure if I should tell the server. I was hoping she would notice but she didn't. But the donuts were out of this world fantastic. Will be baaack!!

Overall and excellent experience
Saw that several places were not available so decided to try something different. Well after driving through torrents of rain to get there I was surprised to see how plain the outside looked. Once I walked in the door I was quite surprised, it was very appealing. My wife was impressed by how the menu would light up when you opened it. She was even more impressed with the service we received. I will say this their service beat out Bern’s Steakhouse by a mile.
My only issue was there apparently a leak in the roof from the rain. It wasn’t much of a big deal to us because I just changed seat and notified our server of the issue. The next table on the other hand made a big stink about it. They moved tables and seemed to be fine.

Great Birthday Luncheon
Our group celebrates birthdays by going to local restaurants. It was time to celebrate my birthday. Several of the women in our group had been to Grille One Sixteen-Carrollwood and suggested we go there. It was an excellent choice. We arrived early and were greeted warmly by

worth the price
First time I've been there for dinner. We had reservations but still had to wait about 15 minutes. We were greeted right away and seated in some very comfortable seats just outside the bar. Within seconds we were served drinks, within minutes they brought over some free appetizers. Once we were seated we were in a nice booth. The dining room is a bit loud but still can be romantic. The waiter was very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and efficient. Good wine list, good menu, not too lengthy but a variety of choices. Our dinners were excellent. Fish was fresh and steak was cooked perfectly. Overall the experience was a bit pricey but definitely worth it. We'll be back.

We were out-of-towners looking for a special place to celebrate our son's 20th birthday. We took a chance by booking a reservation at a place we were completely unfamiliar with but boy, we were pleasantly surprised! Upon arrival at the restaurant we had some reservations about how the place would measure up to our expectations (we had viewed the menu and prices online so had some high expectations) since it was located on an outparcel of a busy strip center. As soon as we walked in the door we were intrigued by the decor and the vibe of the place. Our server was attentive and personable and the quality of the food exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend Grille One Sixteen without reservation.

Went here for an anniversary dinner. Wanted to try somewhere different other then capital grille. The serious was very attentive and we never had an empty glass or was sitting around waiting for our waitress. The food was delicious, especially the kona steak. Very tender and the soy sauce reduction was a perfect pairing with the rice and grilled pineapple. They do not have a large selection for their desserts but there Reese's peices smores was delicious. Definitely will go back again for another occasion.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my wife for her birthday. I can say every course was excellent. Service was also very good. Do not miss a chance to have an extraordinary meal. It will be worth your time and money.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Michael was our server by request. Everything was excellent as always, that's why we go there.

This weekend we had yet another perfect dining experience at Grille One Sixteen (Carrollwood). I was celebrating a new job and we wanted a place with ambience, great food and excellent service. Once again, Grille One Sixteen did not disappoint. We started with apps of bacon and ceviche. Both were fantastic. Then we moved on to the surf n' turf special and the Chilean Sea Bass with the chef recommended spinach & crab topping. Oh my goodness! We were in Food Heaven! We finished it all off with a few donuts and coffee...and my Grey Goose Cosmo was the best I've had in ages, perfectly icy!
Our server, Dominic, was exceptional. He provided outstanding service without being intrusive. He perfectly intuited our every need.

Have been to Grille 116 several times-both with a large group and 2 or 4. Always have great food and service-have never been disappointed. Have hooked some friends on it as well.
