    The atmosphere is romantic and the views are exceptional. I requested a window table for my anniversary and I guess the manager didn't communicate with the hostess and sat another party at my table. The food was ok. My wife's crab cakes was over cooked and the lobster was slightly chewy.

    Wait staff is efficient and friendly. The bar staff is on top of their game. The sommelier, Steve, knows his stuff and will always have a suggestion or two if you want to try something new. Trust him. Food is incredible. As a restaurant along a waterfront, I always expect the quality of the food to decline geometrically the closer you get arithmetically to the H2O. These guys are just the opposite.

    Never go to this restaurant on a busy night in season if you mind loud, loud, loud!!! We all left with a terrible headache... Even the waiter could'nt be heard and g Had to explain the menu to each person in the ear at the table . We were 3 people so why only 2 rolls? We asked for more and they brought out another 2 We felt rushed and very un appreciated.... I guess so many 1 time only tourists out rule us locals. My husbands's Martinez had to be sent back! I left notes saying it was my birthday... This place does not care. The food was was good but I'm running back to the Capital Grill.

  • NOT SO GOOD FOR A SPECIAL EVENING
    carefreevoyager
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Booked one month ahead for Valentine's evening, and called the lunchtime to re-confirm. When we arrived (on time), the place was very crowded - more like a zoo than the restaurant we had known for years. The "hostesses" were dismissive and not the least bit engaged in making us welcome, and indeed told us we would have to wait 15 to 20 minutes in the crowded lobby area or bar for our table. I wonder what is the point of making a timed reservation when the management are incapable of fulfilling their side of the deal. When we finally got to our table, the service was fine and the food was as good as we had come to expect.

    My husband and I had been to the restaurant before and knew how beautiful and how fabtastic the food was. So we were very much looking forward to celebrating Valentine's night at Grill 66. How sad! I think the restaurant overbooked and therefore, we were rushed throughout the dinner! The servers were constantly looking to pick up our plates,our main server told us we were "behind" and we were not offered coffee with our dessert. We had less than one hour and a half for a cocktail, appetizer, main course and dessert. The bill arrived with dessert. Sad, I wonder if our disappointement is worth the number of guests they managed to add on that night by rushing us like that. No more recommendations for you, sorry! Chantal

    Friendly hostesses that greet you, a manager who makes sure you are comfortable and the place is running smoothly and excellent food and service. Dominic waited on us tonight. We have had him many times and he provides first rate service. Salads, seafood and steaks were excellent as was the coffee and dessert. This place is outstanding and always worth a visit if looking for wonderful steak and seafood in a lovely water setting. Enjoy!

    Dined on 1/29/2014
    I took some clients here on the recommendation of a friend. It was a pleasant evening so we decided to take a table outside. The views were great and provided for good conversation. Our server was great, as was the food. What threw me for a loop was when a gentleman lit up his cigarette at the table next to ours. With the wind blowing in our direction it was very annoying. I didn't think that was permitted in restaurants, and hasn't been for some time. So we ended up leaving on a sour note after a great dining experience. Considering the views from outside I consider this a competitive disadvantage for this restaurant and will not be going back.

    Food was very good, service very pretentious, wine steward, sommelier, whatever - was a detriment rather than a helpful person, made negative comment about the packaging of a wine I chose and have experience with (plus I have much more than average skill than the average "I know wine" person) was generally rude and inappropriate.

    We have been here many times and this time we brought along two other couples who haven't been here in years. Food, as always, was terrific. Service very attentive. Hostess staff are friendly and go out of their way to make sure they accommodate your requests. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed dining here. We always do. Tremendous steak and fish dishes plus their salads and sides, not to mention their sweets, are outstanding.

    I think it is a classy restaurant and when we come with a special group nearly montly your staff always knows my husband drinks Crown Royal and asks him if he would like his drink right away. I like that familiarity. The food has always been outstanding. My husband cannot taste or smell well from a virus, he does not hear well and would not classify it as romantic as I would. Price wise we cannot come as often as I would like, but definitely bring visitors to you or special occasions such as last week---one birthday and and an anniversary. The chocolate cake is out of sight and the vanilla ice cream with the fudge sauce supreme.

    Restaurant is very loud. It is also very bright. The food was great and so was the server except he seemed to disappear for long periods. Also I noted when making the reservation it was our 25th wedding anniversary and no one acknowledged it. Some one dropped the ball. Other restaurants in this class have always congratulated us. This restaurant is only good for group gathering not for a couple that wants a romantic evening.

    The food is always consistently very good. The portions are large, and the menu, while it features steaks, is varied enough for anyone who would prefer something other than steak. The ambience is perfect whether it is a dinner for two or a large group. The service is excellent and the wine list is very nice. All in all, a great experience!

    Dinner for 6. So glad we decided to go there instead of the Capital Grill (which we always enjoy). Grille 66 was a little quiet - so it's not for someone looking for a lively scene, but the food, service and drinks were impeccable. They didn't miss a single step. The snapper special was absolutely perfect. As a last minute request, they accomodated us outside and we enjoyed watching the boats go by. We'll definitely go back.

    we recently went for our anniversary. Dressy restaurant, some people were in jackets I was in slacks and a nice shirts (we are in our 30's) and my wife wore a dress. Service was great and the staff was friendly. We sat by the water and the view was incredible. I got the 12oz filet, it was ok, I've had better at another steakouse, however alot of people ordered the Sea Bass and the couple next me his wife got he sea bass and it was huge and she said delicious, coming from where she just had it a few days before and it was 1/2 the size. If we go back I would get the Sea Bass as that seems like a popular dish. Great special occasion restaurant as its not noisy and its nice to go to a restaurant and be dressed up and not feel out of place
