  • Great Christmas Eve Meal
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/24/2012
    We really enjoyed our first meal here. Brought guests from out of town for Christmas Eve who were delightfully surprised. We didn't know what to expect to be honest, and were shocked To see how lovely and upscale the ambience is. Portobello entree was perfectly seasoned and cooked for my vegan daughter. Dad enjoyed the flavorful Thai Chicken. Service was friendly, and impeccable. We truly enjoyed our dining experience.

    The restaurant was great! The food was served promptly and well cooked considering everyone was trying to get their meal done before the church service. The servers and hosts were very helpful with our stroller and setting up the table for our 2 year old daughter. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at the Grill this past Saturday night. We were a party of six, and we invited friends to church and dinner for the first time. The presentation of the food, the service, and the taste and quality of the food was outstanding. Our friends were very impressed that a church would have such a great restaurant. Normally we go out to other restaurants after church on Saturday night. Now we plan to eat more at the Grill. Thank you very much for such a great dinner!

    We were very disappointed with this restaurant. How can it be the #1 restaurant in Fort Lauderdale area? The food's presentation was poor, the french fries came cold, and we had to return it to the kitchen. The taste of the food was below average, and the ambiance was nothing special.

    TallieFoodGal
    Dined on 5/26/2012
    I will start by saying that YES, the food is really good and the service is very friendly.... however you must remember that this restaurant is on the property of a church... so there is no alcohol served (if that's a MUST for you, don't go); it's a large campus so it's kinda hard to find the Grille; and if you go when there is also a church service going on - Saturday night, for instance - parking is next to impossible; AND they telecast the service going on inside the church thru-out the restaurant. SO, really good food (REALLY good); but don't hope for a great wine list or a quiet, romantic setting or great view or anything like that. But if you want a really good meal with very courteous & friendly & prompt service,this is your place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    I was visiting my mother in Aventura for Mother's Day and was looking for a Sunday brunch, albeit last minute. I wasn't sure what to expect since a restaurant on a church property -- especially one that neither my mom nor sister and I had ever visited -- would be first up on the "desired restaurant list". We were pleasantly surprised! The ambiance was that of an upscale restaurant, the hostesses and servers -- senior youths or college students from the church -- were gracious, friendly, polite and better than most I have encountered in NYC or NJ which is where I am from. The food well-prepared, great variety, and plentiful all at a modest price. And the meal was topped off by presenting all the women at the table with individual roses.

    I always love eating at the Grill. My favorite dish is the vegetable steak - a grilled portobello mushroom with spinach, tomatoe, smashed potatoes and the whole stack is topped with a delicious sauce. For this visit Mom had the simple fish (salmon), and I had the salmon with wild mushrooms and Isreali couscous. Both of our dinners were wonderful. Also beautiful setting and excellent service.
