Diner Reviews
  • "They were short staffed, didn't cook my tenderloin properly, didn't receive what I ordered, and really messed up on the Bernais Sauce; awful. All that plus it's expensive, they didn't live up to a fine dining reputation."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "For the price the food was horrible. Presentation looked great taste was horrible."

  • "By far the best restaurant I have ever been to... My friends all say the keg is the best restranut but THIS RESTYRANT TAKES THE CAKE"

  • "Excellent décor. Prices reasonable. Food is great."

  • "If you are ever in Windsor you have to stop in and check out City Bar And Grill they have some of the most attentive wait staff I have come across and the food is nothing but outstanding, would I go again Dam Right I would I am going to spread the word to all my friends that they need to Check this place out."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Great food as always, beautiful establishment. Service was a little slow this time (server had a large party to attend to) but the wait staff are always friendly and normally quite attentive (maybe overly so at times). A little pricey to make it a regular spot for a workday lunch, more of a once every month or two place for us."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Stunning decor, stunning service, amazing presentation and tasty food. Hats off to the Chef and staff."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "-Very slow food even if there were about 10% of tables were occupied. The entire simple meal last almost 2 hours. -Table service was sub-standard. More like a cheap restuarant. Definitely not worth the premium price you pay. -I had a flight of 3 fillet mignon. The meat was horrible. Not worth $38 for 3 x 3oz steak. I am from Toronto and had a business meeting in Windsor area. Tried this restaurant since it seems to be a famous local place. Turns out horrible. Would not recommend this place to anyone."

  • "TCG continues to impress and is without doubt the most consistent place to dine in Windsor. New menu is likely the best so far. Server told us they have a lobster tank in the basement to ensure freshest available. Service was attentive without being over the top. Best decor in Windsor too. These guys do it right. Keep it up. BTW as for value - I wish people would compare what fast food or the Keg cost!"

  • "Had the lobster dinner and it was delicious! Compliments to the chef!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "A 'find' in a terrific city. The lobster bisque was chock full of fish and smooth as silk. The Maylaysian Chicken preparation was as good as any I have had. This young chef knows what he's doing and diners benefit from his creativity."

  • "I have been to The City Grill many times over the past three years. The most recent visit confirmed for me that this is by far the best restaurant in Windsor. They have just launched the Spring/Summer menu and too be honest I think it is the best so far. The night we were there it was quite busy with several very large groups - always a concern that you get lost in the crowd when this happens. Not so - the service was on point, the dishes were creative and well executed. The meal and overall experience was outstanding. TCG is in a tough spot, because they have proven they are the best around people expect the best all the time and delivering consistent food and service in a place this big can be tough, but they always manage to do it."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Finally we have place in Windsor that can be described as a real 'dining experience'. There are some very nice neighbourhood places scattered around town and of course the pasta and meatball joints but we are a wasteland when it comes to good dining. This place is NOT fine dining but it certainly is the finest around. Excellent food food and service with a really nice decor and feel. The whole place has the big city feel which I suspect is exactly what the owners were trying to achieve - great bar area. I chuckled as I read the reviews before I booked - 'expensive' 'pricey for what you get'. Give me a break, it is likely the best valued food around town. "

  • "Had my birthday dinner here and the staff and host were great, however the waitress wasn't too kind and sporadically asked for our drink orders instead of asking us all at once. Food was great, a little pricey but it was expected with the quality of food. Would definitely dine there again."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We brought friends there for the first time...they were so impressed.The service and the food was superb."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Excellent Easter brunch. Nice variety of food (Omelette station, carving board, multiple selections of hot food, salad and dessert bar) and everything was delicious. Servers and staff were extremely attentive and friendly. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We have been to City Grill few times for brunch and have been satisfied with the service, food and the ambiance. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere so you can sit and enjoy your food and not feel rushed. Kids like the place as it is well lit and does not feel too dark like most restaurants do. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Had a wonderful diner with a group of friends. Place was busy but subdued until around 9:00-9:30ish then the DJ started. The place started getting very busy with a young professional crowd and what was suppose to be just dinner turned into a great night out. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a Big City feel in Windsor. Food, Service and Atmosphere is certainly the best I have seen in Windsor. "

  • "We had a great dinner, food was great, presentation great. Service a little slow, but we weren't in any hurry."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "When we left I was so full because the food was thick. They explained they were still on the winter menu but even the pasta sauce was gummy. Don't get me wrong the food was tasty but it could have been less weighed down by the thick sauces."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I dine here about once a month and look forward to it every time. The service has improved by leaps and bounds! The food has always been spectacular. Tuna Wonton Tacos, Short Rib Entree(best i've ever had), peanut butter chocolate cake......do I need to say more? I highly recommend giving it a try!"

  • "This restaurant is a must if you are in windsor. Great food and atmosphere. the food was excellent and we had a private room for a meeting. the service was awesome too! Highly recommend it and it is a go-to everytime I am in Windsor."

  • "Not only on trend but innovation was clearly evident. Excellent value friendly professional service. A great night!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We waited too long to eat. The menu has limited vegetarian options and is very pricey. We were sitting with empty glasses for a long time and although the little pieces of bread they brought to the table were delishious there wasn't enough and we waited forever for refills on that as well. The waiter was super friendly but I wouldn't go back just for the service. If you want to charge so much for the food the time waited should be minimized. We were late for our next reservation on account of the time it took for us to eat."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had booked a group lunch for our office team. The restaurant allowed us to preorder our meals to ensure we were back at the office in a timely manner. The food was delicious and everyone received what they ordered without delay. The service was friendly and efficient. The only delay was at the end of the meal when change had to be made for the individual payments. This type of delay is expected with a large group with multiple payments, so we were not surprised or disappointed. Overall this was an excellent experience, and we will return."

  • "Went for the Bacon event and they definitely delivered. I reccomend the BLT caesar to drink it was delicious with a bacon bit rimmed glass :)"

  • "City Grill was the best! I rarely give a restaurant an "outstanding" review, but this one deserves it. I came across on the Tunnel Bus from Detroit after spending nearly a week downtown on business, with the gloomy and overpriced options there. It may seem like a lot of trouble crossing the border just to have dinner, but it was so worth it! I'd go back in a heartbeat. Great food, great service. What more can you ask for?"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Everything was amazing, the food was delicious! The crab cakes are mouth watering amazing! Chowder was great and also shared the goat cheese appetizer dish and your burger with the caramelized onions ...! Service was excellent and very friendly! Would go back in a heart beat"

  • "Consistent, fresh and top notch service. If you are looking for a true dinning experience in Windsor, this is the only place to dine. My wife and myself brought another couple and said it the best. There are tons of good places to eat in Windsor, but if you want to dine, there is only one. Wraps it all up for me!"

  • "Was pleasantly surprised with our dining experience. Food and service was outstanding. Enjoyed BLT Salad and Beef Tenderloin entree. Will definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We keep going back to TCG simply because it is the best. Had a business lunch meeting. Service was fast and efficient, food outstanding and we could actually get work done. We have been to TCG many times and without doubt it is the most consistent food and service in town - real food not from a bag. As I read other reviews I am completely stumped by what some others say about the cost - are you kidding me? Scratch cooking at these prices is a steal. It is no more expensive then the Keg for god's sake."
