The cedar planked salmon with
The cedar planked salmon with kale salad is by far the best fish dish in ft.lauderdale. Always friendly service.
Great dining experience!

Might be the best filet I've ever had. Desserts were extraordinary. Nice private room for a group of 10.

Great Restaurant with Great Food!
We went to this restaurant for my birthday. The ambience was great and the food was really good. I had the Hawaiian skirt steak with parmesan potatoes, the steak had a great flavor and the potatoes were awesome!! My boyfriend had the chicken paillard, which he really enjoyed too. After dinner, we went upstairs to listen to the band "Three Ring Circus", and they were really good. We are fans of the local music scene and they did not disappoint. We had drinks upstairs and the waiter recommended the bread pudding. I am not usually a fan of bread pudding but the water "bet his life" on the fact that we would love it and he was right on; it was great! I would definitely come back here again!

Plenty of food
My friend and I have been there 3 times and we are big eaters each 210 lbs. and weight lifters. The food was great and plentiful. John our server could not have been more professional and helpful in our choices. The live jazz band added a really nice touch and made it even more special. It is our favorite spot on Las Olas.

Fantastic as always
Staff is friendly, food is great, best part is restaurant is quiet. You can actually hold a conversation without having to yell.
Food was exceptional. We split a Ceasar Saad to start: lettuce was crisp and was not drowning in dressing per our reset for light dressing. Next up, we split the 16 oz. prime rib, which was tender and perfectly cooked to medium
The carrot cake was the final course and simply delicious. Not too swee and was served warm.
I would definitely make an effort to go again.

solid place in downtown
I've passed by this place several times and decided, this time, to try it. Nice decor, excellent waitress. I ate light but the burger was done to perfection.

My 5 friends and I had a wonderful experience at grille 401. We had wonderful service from our waiter John. He had extreme patience as well as knowledgable insight of the menu. Everyone had a different meal, we all sampled each other's food, and it was all amazing.

Grille 401 is "the" place
Grille 401 is "the" place for a power lunch in downtown ft.lauderdale. Great group of business people on a daily basis, food is amazing and the servers are terrific.

We've been to this restaurant several times, but this was the first time we had their steaks...They were perfectly prepared over their wood fired grill and absolutely delicious! In fact, we enjoyed them more than the steaks we recently had at a high end Fort Lauderdale steakhouse! Service, as always was friendly yet professional...Dessert was excellent. Also, a nice surprise was the $20 off any bottle of wine priced over $40 .Just a great dining experience!.

Check out the wood fired lobster
Check out the wood fired lobster tails - they are great. Terrific new additions to the wine list - both by the glass and new bottles. Plus they've added handcrafted cocktails and beer. This restaurant continues to impress.
8/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
From the appetizer to the dessert the food was very good. The surprise of the night which was recommended by our waiter was the white chocolate bread pudding in a berry sauce. It was served warm and it was delicious.
We were seated upstairs so missed out on actually seeing the musician playing on the ground floor but the melodious sounds still wafted up to us added the icing to the evening.

The steak was the best I ever
The steak was the best I ever had! Great service and friendly staff. The manager came over to our table to see hoe we were doing and made for a wonderful experience.

My family of five wanted a "special occasion" dinner to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Grill 401 certainly looked the part in the reviews we had read, and we already knew we liked the overall ambience in Las Olas Blv'd..
The food was the best we had tasted in Florida in all the years we have been coming, and that wasn't just one or two of us, but the whole family.
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a cheap restaurant, but not only did it deliver the special occasion we wanted, we all felt that the food itself was still excellent value for money.
Well done Grill 401.

Awesome place for happy hour
Awesome place for happy hour - very creative cocktails. Dinner afterwards was terrific - the cedar planked salmon is the best in town and the baby back ribs are awesome. Grille 401 is our favorite restaurant in downtown ft.lauderdale.

I asked a friend which restaurant
I asked a friend which restaurant is preferable in the Ft. Lauderdale area and my friend suggested Grille 401. The ambience is wonderful. They have cases of wines from different varities. When we walked in the hostess was very polite. She asked if we wanted downstairs or upstairs and advised us that upstairs was booked due to a party. They had a live band that played jazz music which was very soothing. My boyfriend had the salmon while I had the Hawaiian churrasco. Both were ok but we had better. The only thing that was tasty was the crab cake for the apptezier. I would go back and try a different dish but would recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Nice place in the heart of Las Olas
Excellent service, good food and a variety of menu options. They offered to substitute or change any of the meals as well to accommodate for food allergies.

A great Saturday night eating
A great Saturday night eating at a bar table while watching the Notre Dame - Michigan game. The private TV's are terrific.
The wood fired lobster tails were terrific and their special vegetable of the night - a cauliflower mash was outstanding. Also, great new additions to the wines by the glass - a Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay went perfectly with the meal.

Took clients there for dinner and everyone was raving about the restaurant. Food and service were spot on.
Best restaurant on Las Olas!

Very Good Meat Entrees
Our second time here. My husband had the roast beef again and was very happy with it. I had the Hawaiian Skirt Steak and it was perfectly delicious. We were there for dinner on a Thursday and it was pretty empty and therefore quiet. There was music that was very nice.
9/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
Grille 401 has got to be one of the best contemporary restaurants in the area. They have variety, great service, and a gorgeous ambiance. I have to say that this is my favorite all American restaurant hands down!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time at Grill 401. Both service and food were top notch !
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere and food were stellar!! When a miscommunication caused a mix up with our table for 15 people, management gave us an alternative that was great and complimentary apps! Loved the 1/2 off bottles of superb wine!! Completely enjoyed this experience and my clients did, as well!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great dining experience
Third visit doesn't disappoint ! Attentive service and perfectly prepared dishes. We love taking out of town guests to downtown Fort Lauderdale to Grill 401. There is plenty of parking as well as valet. The decor is gorgeous inside but not stuffy and the outside is very contemporary. See pics on their website
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
All Around Good Menu
We have been here 3 times and have tried different things each time and the food has been amazing. A friend of ours orders the same thing every time she eats here and she says it is delicious and it tastes exactly the same every time.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took my parents and brother to Grille 401 for dinner when they were visiting Fort Lauderdale. The server knew his stuff - he gave us great descriptions of all of the specials and anything we asked about. I had the 8 oz. filet which was cooked to perfection. Others in our party had a salad, fish, hamburger...everything was delicious. It's a great place to go if you want to get dressed up but you will also feel comfortable there if you are dressed casually and want to just pop in for a meal.

Awesome scallops and lobster
Awesome scallops and lobster roll with sticky black rice!

First time there
This restaurant has gone over a few changes in ownership the past few years. But we were very impressed with Grille 401 on our first trip there. The soups were excellent and anything grilled was fantastic. My girlfriend had the lobster rolls and raved about them. We will definitely go back again and recommend it highly.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place, great food. Jermaine was our server and she was awesome. Very nice and attentive!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding very enjoyable
We were pleasantly surprised and food was delicious very recommendable restaurant!
All of our food was delicious and ambience on a Friday night was great.

Nice New Find on Las Olas Blvd.
Great food from starters to dessert. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. The prices were fair for the quality and service. I'd return on my next visit!
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
always good yet
Plenty if variety
Only improving would be bread which we had to ask for
We frequent restaurant monthly
The service has gotten spotty
They could do better busing of table s to keep clean look
10/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
A visual Treat
Dine well on perfectly prepared food cooked to order, and enjoy the beautiful modern décor in this spacious tribute to modern motifs.

I wish I could remember her name, but she made some great recommendations, especially for our dessert. The bread pudding was simply amazing!! She recommended adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, which made it all the more delicious!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made my night...
Went there for my wedding anniversary, just learned earlier that day I had a huge issue at work. Went there trying to have an enjoyable time. When I left I could not remember what were the details of my work day, except I did remember the food. Had the Sea Bass, just wonderful. My wife had Grouper, also equally wonderful. If you like Kail, try the Kail salad too. The atmosphere and incredible service just added to an incredible anniversary. My wife and I had a five star evening...
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in the mood for more of a "small plate" kind of night, so we ordered a couple of appetizers, some sushi, and a couple of lighter entrees. Not our usual order at 401, or at their sister restaurant in Boca, but what really stood out for us is the consistency of the food here and at Piñon. We have never had a bad meal...or even a bad item...at either restaurant.
Oh, and don't miss the chocolate waffle!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Veggie Burger is the best
Veggie Burger is the best in town. Plus, they've added some new items to the menu - check out Nola's Shrimp dish. Very good!
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was my first time at 401. The New York strip was delicious. I was surprised that they didn't have garlic butter to go with it. The server was excellent, but it was a week night and not very busy. I'll go back on a weekend on my next visit.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Asian tuna burger was delicious. Moist and flavorful.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
outstanding dinner on 11/07/2013
atmosphere very romantic waiter was excellent , informative about the Menu and even complemented us with dessert for our anniversary. thanks a million Customer Service was very apparent here and I felt very welcome and never rushed. I will be back very soon .
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good but pricey for what it offers
Our server was terrific, attentive but not intrusive. Food was good but not great for the prices. Beet salad was wonderful but the fish sandwich which followed was tiny and fishy. My husband told them it wad my birthday, but the obligatory dessert with candle never appeared. We wil return, but order more carefully.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food Excellent Service
I went to dinner at Grill 401 on Saturday night with my wife. We were sat on time and the staff was extremely courteous. Great presentation with the food and it tasted even better. I definitely will recommend the restaurant to friends.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The filet mignon was excellent and the brussel sprouts were great. The trio of ice cream sandwiches were amazing too.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
second visit and pleasantly satisfied. The Artichoke appetizer is delicious, wonderful bar scene and excellent service
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for a late lunch. Had sushi and some appetizers and a nice bottle of wine. Sushi was excellent I recommend the spicy tuna roll and the coconut shrimp roll, both very tasty. Wine selection look interesting. Will be back for dinner next time in Ft Lauderdale.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
good food, great service at 401
401 is surrounded by great restaurants but they hold thier own. Although the scene was energetic it was quiet and you could have a conversation without yelling like most restaurants, and the food was surprisingly great! The room was lined with two and four seater booths (diner like) that did not add anything to the ambiance I was looking for but I had a wonderful filet dish with smashed sweet potato and a roast artichoke for an appetizer. Would have loved the space to be more open so we could take in the whole restaurant and the people.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food - The menu is vast, with everything from steak to seafood and sushi. Our group of 10 ordered a number of different dishes, and all were well prepared. Desserts were creative and tasty as well.
Service - Excellent teamwork among the staff. All service was timed appropriately, and we were never missing anything.
Atmosphere - A live musician was a nice accompaniment to the evening.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and service
I have eaten here 3 times since I moved here 9 months ago and it's one of my favorite restaurants. The service was excellent from the hostesses that greet you to the bartenders and waiters. Highly recommend and look forward to next visit.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was really good. It was me and my girlfriend and we enjoyed dinner outside. Very nicely set up, higher class setting. Service was very friendly and service was quick.
