    Have dined here many times. Not as special as it used to be. Went for our anniversary. Extremely loud. At our past few visits, disappointed in the service. Not very friendly nor very attentive. Steaks are good but not particularly tasty, nothing special. Disappointed in changes to their "sides" menu. No alternatives to white starches.

    I had read a number of review that said the Coach Grill had slipped from its former glory, but on my first visit last week, my wife and I were very impressed. The service was outstanding: attentive without being annoying and the pacing of the different courses was perfect. The food was very good -- cooked perfectly, but be warned that the portion sizes are very large. The only complaint on the food was a bit-too-liberal use of salt. The wine list had a solid variety of regions and prices such that even a wine connoisseur would fine something interesting to try. In all, one of the better dining experiences I've had in the Greater Boston area -- Highly Recommended.

    Dined on 5/25/2014
    We were a party of 6 on Sunday evening. All of us enjoyed our meals and everything regarding our food choices were wonderful. There were some issues with service. Although our server seemed to be quite seasoned, he missed the mark on attentiveness towards our table. Water glasses were empty, and we needed to ask for them to be filled. The trip to the bar for our wine/drinks seemed to take forever. Our dinner choices were made after took orders from surrounding tables that were seated after us. Special instructions with the host were made via open table and were not looked at. The host did give us a dessert to go once I notified her of the mistakes @ our table. Just not the service and expectations that we expected while dining at CG.

Roast beef and creamed spinach well prepared. Temperature of entrees and soup could have been hotter.

    We have been coming here for many years to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. Just not the same....Had to finally ask for the bread basket after tables that were seated after us received theirs first. Our waiter was very slow as was how long it took to get our meals. Even the steaks were not great! Had arranged for a complimentary dessert to be delivered which was just a scoop of vanilla ice cream (ugh)! Probably will find a new favorite place. This experience did not make us feel pampered nor valued as customers as in the past.

    The restaurant came with great reviews and we could not get into Capital Grill so we tried it. Two of us ordered a lemonade cocktail which tasted like cough syrup so we sent it back and they replaced them with another cocktail that was good but it took too long. Next the prime rib was very tough, I struggled through mine but my wife could not cut hers so they refunded the price. The manager was very nice. Not a great evening for a graduation dinner.

    Initially we were seated in a small dining room where someone had a medical emergency, 911 was called and we all vacated the room. The maitre'de got everyone displaced reseated very quickly evening though the main dining room was packed. Fresh breads and salads were brought to us (having left everything behind) and after our meal we were told the dessert and coffee was on the house! That was certainly unexpected. I noted a table by us, also displaced, got a bottle of wine. Very good PR move. The meal was excellent and the server very attentive and kind. We enjoyed the evening very much, especially when told the woman with the medical emergency was OK.

  • Last Minute Mother's day Brunch

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I had other plans for Mother's Day that fell through, so I was happy to get a reservation for myself, my daughter and mom for 2pm. On Saturday, I tried to change the reservation to 4ppl through open table, and it said the only available time was 2:45. I was going to bring my boyfriend too, but didn't want it to change the time, so I didn't invite him. When we got there the restaurant was mostly full, but we were seated almost immediately, but it was a table for four. I was half expecting a smallish table against a wall with three seats around it. Oh well, next time I'll call. The server was wonderful, the food was delicious. only complaint: took home half of steak benedict, but the sauce didn't make it, even though we asked for it.

    Excellent food, nice selection, excellent service! For a wonderful night out, the Coach Grill has it all. I have been to the Coach Grill many times and love it. Groups of two, four, or six work well. This visit we had a group of ten, which does not work well, as the large groups sit in a back corner that is quite noisy. The ten people at the table can't come close to hearing each other. Only three or four people could talk and even that was a strain in that particular corner!

    The overall dining experience is still very good here. Solid, but nothing really jumps out at you as being outstanding. The service, however, from Kevin L, was fantastic... a real pro. Most everything our party of six had was very good, a few items just ok. My beef wellington was the weakest dish... soggy pastry. Stilll a nice place to have available in the burbs but not running back so soon.

    We have eaten at the Coach Grill quite a few times over the years, as it morphed from The Red Coach Grill, to JC Hillary's to the Coach Grill. The restaurant was very active, as expected on a Friday evening. The wait staff was very good, but the "food runner" delivering the food gave us the food for another table, but we caught it. Then when our food arrived, my salmon plate (done just the way I asked for-cooked all the way through) had french fries and not the mashed garlic potatoes I ordered. Typical of a Friday night it was very noisy in both the dining room and the bar.

    I can't say enough good things about the Coach Grill... Every time I've eaten there has been outstanding. The drinks are creative and well made, the food is excellent and reasonable (significantly less than a high end steak house). The clams casino were out of this world, salty, juicy, with a great bacon flavor. My braised lamb shank was tender and perfectly cooked. The corn pudding side was to die for and so are the Brussels sprouts...

  • Oops - Easter Brunch
    PreshowDiner
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    The Coach Grill is one of our favorite brunch destinations. Although we knew they were having a special Easter brunch, we assumed (incorrectly) that it would be an extended brunch menu. Instead, the brunch menu was reduced to only a few items, while still allowing access to the full dinner menu. Unfortunately, our favorite items were not included on the reduced brunch menu, so we left disappointed. Not the restaurant's fault, but ours for not asking more questions in advance. We'll know next time.

    The food was very disappointing for the price. The artic char was dry and bland and the lobster ravioli was salty and tasteless. The sautéed spinach was soggy from the oil; thus causing the entire meal to sit in the pool of oil. The rack of lamb was shriveled up into a small size ball.

    I have been to the coach grill many times. It is normally a favorite for the excellent food. We find not have this experience this time. My sirlion was very fatty we also had a filet which was good however not much flavor. No garnishes very bland. Bottle of red wine was good but served way to warm. We were there very early before it was even busy...for the money we were very disappointed with this trip.

    The waitstaff (Angie)was excellent, but the food was disappointing. Quite a lot of brown lettuce in the Caesar salad and bland, watery dressing. The calamari arrived with the breading in crumbs on the bottom of the plate and the calamari naked. We had to scoop up the crumbs to eat WITH the calamari. The Steak au Poivre was good and they gave us extra sauce. Lobster bisque was fair at best. Disappointing meal as we have been eating there for many years. We hope it was an aberration and just an off night in the kitchen.

    This was not my first visit to the Coach Grill and in the past we were pleased with the dining experience. Three of us went there and one person who ordered a steak was pleased with the meal. I had the rack of lamb which was fair. The chops were tasty but very small and the other dissatisfied guest had char which he said was only fair. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and the food should have been better. I have a special occasion soon and will go elsewhere.

    For a place in location in the Burb's the food is nothing special, not worth writing home about. It is so over price it is not funny, I can so go into downtown Boston and get a much better meal at the same price or less. Not sure why people go back. Really $38 for a piece Swordfish with risotto which was less then the size of a 1/2 slice of bread. Will probably never go back

    Our group of 4 sat at a comfortable booth and started with a great cocktail, mine being a Manhattan. The wine list has some affordable finds. I started with the Crab and Lobster Louie which was delicious, and the pepper jelly of the the Herb Crusted Brie triple cream brie was to die for. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked. I shared a Butterscotch Bread Pudding for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and felt it to be a good and decadent way to end the experience. I have been to the Coach Grill four times in the last few months and have yet to be disappointed.
