    Their french onion soup was excellent. The seafood linguine was finely seasoned and contained generous portions of fish, shrimp, and scallops, which made up for the slightly overcooked pasta. The fully booked space is somewhat small, so the noise level was a bit higher than normal.

    The maitre d had no reference of our open table reservation and the restaurant was booked. Unfortunately i am on vacation and could not print out the open table confirmation. They manuvered and got us in but the people behind us alsohad an open table reservation that they did not know about and they had to wait. Don't know whether this is a restaurant problem or an open table problem but does not make for happy customers

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    This a delightful restaurant. The crowd seemed to be mostly local, with only a few tourists--like me. The view from the deck of sunset over the beach was magnificent. I sat at the bar with friendly folks around me. The waiter/bartender was pleasant and attentive, and made good suggestions. I ate a fisherman's stew (that may not be the right name) that was tasty and big enough for two. Then topped it off with a scrumptious banana bread pudding. When I'm in Provincetown again, I'll definitely come back.

    I have long heard great things about this restaurant and decided to invite three friends to share a Labor Day treat. The service was superb and the food was outstanding. What could have been a most memorable dining experience was made much less enjoyable by the volume of the noise level. It was frequently impossible to hear what others were saying around the small table. In order to be understood one had to shout which only added to the overall din and self-defeating.

    We dined at Ross' as it was one of the few restaurants in P-town that took reservations (thank you very much!) and it received high marks by Trip Advisor. We was delighted by our meal, the service, and the view of Cape Cod Bay was a bonus. Specials were just that -- special and the seafood risotto was excellent. Nice sangria, too. Service was friendly and attentive. All in all a very nice meal.

    The best restaurant in PTown! Food is consistently outstanding, the view of the harbour is second to none, the wine list is amazing and the ambiance unlike any other in PTown. Caesar, the long-time manager, now owns the restaurant and thankfully many of the staff that have been there for years, including Allie and Catherine have stayed on. This place can't be beat. The only problem with giving it such a great review is that it will even harder to get in next time we go. Reservations are highly recommended.

    I have to say, I am at a loss when I read the (few) bad OpenTable reviews about Ross' Grill. My partner and I have been going to Ross' for years, since they opened. We always make it a point to include Ross' in our plans for a special evening out. The food has been consistent visit after visit. The steaks flavorful, and the raw bar (oysters and shrimp) fresh, plump, and firm. They have a terrific selection of reds, too, with several by the glass. My one critique has to do with our Eastern European waiter. Though he was steadily professional and provided attentive service, his persona was cold, if a bit uninviting. Not one smile. Maybe just a cultural thing? Nothing ruinous, just a note, since waitstaff of past years were more welcoming.

    Good food and great service. About 30 minutes late in seating us but cocktail on the deck overlooking Ptown harbor made the wait very pleasant. In high season and on weekends recommend making reservations at least 2 weeks in advance.

    My partner and I managed to eat at Ross' 3 times during a week in Ptown and enjoyed every bite of the several dishes we ordered and very good selection of wines. I don't usually order steaks at restaurants because I belong to a club at home with the best steaks, but I went out on a limb and ordered the filet with au poivre and it did not disappoint. Dining at Ross' is always a highlight of our Ptown vacation!

    We have been to Ross' Grill before but after this visit on Saturday night, we will never go back. The bartender did everything he could think if before offering us assistance. Our waitress had an awful attitude, she wS busy and had no time for questions or repeating the specials. We weren't offered bread or any small salty treat to help our appetites while we waited. The halibut was too dry to eat, the red sauce on the ravioli was uncooked and should never have left the kitchen. The good news is that there are plenty of other restaurants in Provincetown.

    Popular place where we had to wait for our table even though we had a reservation. Luckily, the outdoor deck where we waited was gorgeous - fantastic view and very comfy. entire restaurant looks out over the water and has a nice atmosphere. Hostess was incredibly nice about our wait and service overall was excellent. Food was great although lamb chops were a bit too fatty. Other meat dishes and fish were awesome. I would definitely go back.

    We had a nice dinner here. It was busy, but we were not in a rush and happy to enjoy a drink pm the deck before dinner, although as we were ordering our drinks at the bar a table opened up so we never made it that far. We shared salads and oysters and ordered steak and seafood specials. Food was pretty good and wine even better. Everything came really fast though, and I would have preferred a slower paced dinner.

    ross grille was our favorite for a special occasion (celebrating partners 50th.) the waiter didn't seem interested as waitstaff (Kat, excellent) in the past. wine was reasonable; salads served, waiting for black pepper, entrees too soon to follow; steak frites, great steaks (fries used to be served in a paper cone) fries were soggy from steamed broccoli, 2 same entrées ordered, 1 much larger steak in comparison; rib eye chimicurri special (excellent sauce) cooked perfect but very thin cut, the plate 3/4 mashed potato; seafood risotto lacked seafood (1 lobster claw) but tasty. Our reservation was for 9pm, maybe too late; staff was eating at table in the back... we paid our check, skipped another round of drinks, coffee & dessert. overall OK.

  • Great food but too loud and pricey
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/5/2014
    The food here is amazing. It really is. Is it way too expensive? Yes. But in line with what you pay in town. Our waiter was fantastic, but the bartender had a chip on his shoulder and was not especially friendly when we asked him a question about a drink. Plus the cosmos he made for our guests were way too strong and they didn't end up finishing them. My biggest problem, though, is the noise level. It was so loud in there (which it had not been on previous visits) that I couldn't hear the person sitting next to me. It actually took away from my dining experience, and made my very expensive pork chop not as appetizing.

    Recommended to me while we were in P-town for a couple of days. Food and service were excellent. Menu seemed limited at first but there were abundant fresh and freshly caught specials to choice from. Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Only complaint was it is quite dark so consider a little flashlight to read the menu if your eyes are ageing.

    I had an 8 pm reservation. I arrived only to be told that my table was not ready and I was offered to go to the bar. I did so and waited for approximately 45 minutes. This did not bother me but the rest of the evening did. I was finally seated and given a wine list I ordered a bottle of wine and was told they were out of that particular bottle. I ordered a second choice and was told they were out of that one too. Miraculously they had the most expensive bottle in stock. I ordered dinner and got the seafood resotto. It consisted of 2 scallops , 2 shrimp and one piece of lobster. The rest was all risotto. It was aweful. I shared all this with the manager who could have cared less. I would pass on this one.

    Decent place is all I can say. Really don't know why it is packed. Service was slow, very very slow. Don't know if it was the kitchen or the server. You can always expect restaurants to be a little off here in P-Town but was way off. Gazpacho was horrible, puréed vegetables and just a tomato base no nuance. Lobster, shrimp and scallops Risotto was ok not outstanding. They did comp us a drink for the entree wait so at least they recognized slow service.

    Ross'Grill is our go-to place for my husband's annual birthday dinner. They always have something interesting and unique on the menu or the chef's specials. We have never been disappointed. Their mussel preparation is one of the best in Provincetown. The service and views are spectacular. You simply must try this place when you visit Provincetown.
