Diner Reviews
  • "I took my BF for his birthday on a Monday during Happy Hour. They were already out of the Begger's Purse, but we ordered Chicken Nachos, pepperoni pizza, and crab cake. The pizza was great as usual, crab cake small but lovely (I'm not a big tarter sauce fan, and would have that left off next time). The cranberry chocolate cheese cake was divine!"

  • "Excellent food and service. A little pricey for everyday dining but great for special occasions."

  • "The restaurant called me and left a voice mail 4 hours prior to our reserved dining time to say that "due to the holiday, we will be closing at 9:00 pm ... please call us to make different arrangements" .... I'm curious as to HOW the restaurant didn't know they would be closing early several days prior to that, when I made the reservation for 10:00 pm ... A very close friend of mine recommended the Sunset Grille ... I will not refer others."

  • "I've gone to Sunset since it opened, but it is time for it to just close it's doors. Saturday night and they're out of food and the food they did serve was a huge disappointment. Be sad to see it go."

  • "The service and food were terrific. The nite we went they had $5 cocktails and all appetizers were $5, you can't do better than that. Will definitely look it up again when in Nashville."

  • "A perennial favorite, the service is excellent and the menu is imaginative. I had a trout blt, which is not a sandwich but a whole trout lightly breaded and stuffed with ripe tomato, bacon and greens. The fish was large and perfectly cooked. Chocolate pot de creme dessert was awesome."

  • "My wife and I wanted a special place to celebrate our 43 wedding anniversary, so we chose the Sunset Grill. The atmosphere was perfect - quiet with adequate but subdued lighting. The main dining room features Paul Harmon paintings. We ordered the calamari appetizer, which was perfectly cooked and served with a great tomato-basil sauce. For our main course, I had the shrimp and grits, and my wife ordered the lamb Bolognese. Both were served promptly and were prepared perfectly. The service was excellent. We cannot afford the Sunset Grill very often, but when we need the best, we know we can get it at the Sunset Grill."

  • "My first experience was good. This past Sunday night, we were disappointed in the food - did not taste good and was not fresh. Everything seemed to be off."

  • "There was a great (huge) selection of wines, beers, cocktails, and food! Their everyday menu was extensive and they also had a long list of specials. Most dishes were unique in some way, and there were even several vegetarian options. Food was great!"

  • "Dined with a friend at Sunset Grill and it has a good ambience. However, I was not impressed with the food. I had the Mediterranean pasta w/ chicken and it had too many artichoke hearts and spinach and not enough of the other vegetables. It was a pretty generic dish and not very representative of the Mediterranean. Friend had the Voodoo pasta and said it was a little too spicy."

  • "After going to Sunset Grill a few times a year for several years--looking upon it as a 'never-fail' restaurant--the last visit was perhaps my last. The time before this visit was below par. This dinner last week was basically inedible. Three dinner meals were ordered; the first person had ahi tuna--and all the accompaniments were cold--sent back. The second dinner was grilled swordfish--no complaints but not stellar as it sometimes is. The third dinner was perfectly prepared awful--trout BLT. There was no way to make it better. Thankfully, I had ordered the delicious Butter Bean Comfit. The restaurant comped two of the three meals...as was appropriate. However, leaving a birthday dinner so dissatisfied is hard to comp."

  • "Sunset Grill never disappoints. The food is consistently excellent, the service is fabulous, and the prices are reasonable for what you get. My only disappointment was that the Brussels sprout salad was not on the menu--when it is featured, try it. It is marvelous!"

  • "Sunset Grill is one of my top favorite places to go. It has everything. Creative food choices tops the list. I have eaten at a lot of fine dining restaurants in the NY/NJ area for years and thus my expectations are high but Sunset Grill has that fine dining creativity in it's menu. When I go there it is with anticipation of what new experience they will offer. Second, is ambience (4 different ones with what I call a fine dining area, a more casual "porch", and out-door seating area and my favorite the booths-around-the-bar area. Pick your spot whatever the occasion. The service is always very good and accommodating. Although not a wine expert, it has an extensive wine list as well. "

  • "We booked a last minute surprise party in one of the party rooms at Sunset Grill and it resulted in a great experience. Very attentive service. We had a completely private room, for a party of only 10 people, that made for a fun night. They let us indulge in a bottle of booze that was gifted to the birthday boy without question. I understand that may not be typical policy...but it seemed like their main concern was that we enjoy ourselves, and that was truly a refreshing feeling. We of course nonetheless ordered regularly from their bar. They also refrigerated, cut, and presented an ice cream cake, with lit candles, that we brought in prior to the party. Very pleased we decided to plan our party at Sunset Grill."

  • "The food is good, nothing to remember. Do not understand why we were seated next to a loud group of 10 people in a near empty dinning room. Could hardly carry a conversation as the group of older dinner talked about an up coming cruise. "

  • "We had been discussing Sunset Grill for quite some time, and finally decided to check it out for my wife's birthday. Most everyone gave the review of "it's pricey - but very good" which I am fine with that! We found that it was a bit "pricey" but unfortunately we could not rate it much beyond "ok" for the food. We both ordered off of the "chef's special" menu in hopes of something special. (Scallops and Rib Eye) Maybe our expectations were just set too high. The waitress and service was excellent. As I told my wife - we have now experienced Sunset Grill. It looks like it would be good for a casual drink or glass of wine out on the patio - may return for that, but probably not for dinner. "

  • "Ate much more than I should, the menu was nearly an overload of things I wanted to try. Salads, though at $5.50 for a half may sound a bit high, but should be considered. The Beets and Heat had an amazing dressing, the Kale salad had the best chevre I've had. Cocktails were slightly above average but not worth visiting alone in my opinion. The Voodoo pasta was one of my favorite tomatoe based sauces and the Shrimp and Grits had some of the best grits. Overall I simply had no complaints and can't wait to return to try more things from the menu."

  • "Mother's Day Brunch ~ I requested outdoor seating and we were crowded onto the patio. With insufficinet shade and the hot sun right over head for most of the time we were there, the seating was no treat. The meals were passable but not anything to recommend or hurry back for. The server served and that was about it. She seemed to be rushed and disinterested. We've been to Sunset Grill before and to be fair, this experience was not close to what we had experienced here before. It was probably just an off day. "

  • "Three of us shared the himus plate as an appetizer. It wasn't like any humus I've had before but it was good even if we had to ask for more pita to finish the humus and other taste treats. The main courses came before we finished the appetizer. We all enjoyed our imaginative fish (cat fish, amberjack, and scallops). The Jack Daniels pecan pie and the coconut sushee were great desserts. The Italian pinot grigio we ordered was out so we had another nice bottle of wine. We ate outdoors on a small enclosed patio. They have an enclosed area and an inside dining room. Valet parking is complementary so tip accordingly."

  • "I love Sunset Grill - it is my go to place for get togethers with friends. The service is outstanding! And now they have guest chef menu which was great. This is in addition to their regular menu which has some of my all time favorites. Great wine list but they also let you bring your own wine for a $15 corkage fee. This last time I was there to celebrate a friends birthday. We shared a number of appetizers and desserts all were wonderful. "
