  • "This was/is an excellent choice for dinner, prior to attending the Dolby Theatre. Comfortable setting, good menu choices and quite good service. The food was hot, tasty, and ample. All in all, a good spot to dine, without going to the theatre."

  • "Great food and service! Nice tables outside overlooking the plaza and water fountain area. Dine under the umbrellas at lunch or early evening; it's most pleasant there .The waitstaff is thoughtful and attentive. The steaks and salads are excellent but we love the giant shrimp cocktail. Don't miss the tender beef short ribs with spinach mashed potatoes. The scallops are sweet and cooked perfectly. The beef filet will be cooked perfectly with your choice of sauce- so hard to choose one! For dessert the hazelnut creme brûlée was worth every bite! Don't miss this gem. Lovely atmosphere with creative cocktails from the bar as well. And parking is right at the Highland Center and The Grill will stamp your parking ticket for you."

  • "The service was so slow. We waited almost 20 mins. for our order. Food was just OK, nothing special about. We were seated near the kitchen door, so it was noisy and chaotic (waiters in and out non-stop). I did not have a positive impression on The Grill."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food as well as the service is always outstanding here. If you're in Hollywood or attending a performance at the Dolby this is the place to go for a meal. We've been here on several previous occasions and this place is consistently good. This time our waitress did everything right but did forget our dessert order … which we really didn't need anyway. LOL"

  • "We had brunch. Server brought toasted bagel without butter. When we asked for butter, response was " Uh, yeah." Bagel and the butter arrived after our other food was finished. Service during the meal was very slow despite restaurant having very few customers yet. We had to look for the server to get our check when we were ready to leave."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Not only did it take way too long for our drinks to come, but mine was wrong (I was served a Stella Artois, instead of a Sierra Nevada that I ordered). Then the wait staff brought our entrees out before our salads. I was not impressed with the service at all. Unless it gets markedly better, I will not spend the money to go back here. For the prices charged, it wasn't worth it. At least the food was tasty."

  • "We went as a party of 5 for my son's birthday before the theatre and had a great time. Service was outstanding. Crab cake was delicious, wedge salad excellent and New York steak perfectly cooked. Kitchen split dishes in the kitchen with no fuss. Would go again!"

  • "I took my teen daughters here for a nice steak dinner while in Hollywood. The food was DELICIOUS! I was a bit dissapointed in the service. It was a very slow night and our server forgot to bring our bread and our appetizer. He was very apologetic but by then I was a bit annoyed. He did take the appetizer off of our bill and offered us a free dessert. I would have preferred getting the things we ordered and paying for them. The food we did receive was excellent."

  • "Great restaurant - only problem is the location inside a horribly busy mall with six levels of parking! But that's not their fault! Food was great and so was the service!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice, only problem for me was that the steak I ordered (which was called Petite New York steak, which was the smallest in the menu) was way too large. The size of it made me lose my appetite a bit, it was just too much. But the staff was great, service was great. It was pricey, but the quality made of the food and service was worth it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We of us met with client prospects in the mid afternoon, six of us, and were treated patiently and royally with outstanding almost invisible service that permitted us to have a fee flowing successful conversation.. Good food at a reasonable price/."

  • "The quality, creativeness and presentation of the food; superb, friendly service; and marvelous ambiance make dining at The Grill an exceptional experience and without a doubt documenting that this is one of the finest restaurants in the world! ."

  • "Used to have more of a selection but they have gone to a "steak place only" sort of menu. Food was good but not worth the price in my opinion. Too bad used to like this place a lot more than I do now."

  • "My husband and I were looking for a nice place to eat for our anniversary. We arrived promptly for our 9:30 pm reservation. The restaurant was empty, we saw 2-3 tables with diners. Yet we stood at the hostess stand for at least 5 minutes before a gentleman came to seat us. We were about ready to walk out. I mentioned it was our anniversary to the host & his response was ok. Customer service is not his forte. The lamb chops my husband ordered were delicious as was the mushroom risotto I ordered. The broccolini tasted like the dirty charred grill. For a restaurant charging $35+ per entree a higher level of service is expected. This place was a huge let down. We will not be back nor would we recommend this restaurant to anyone else."

  • "I wanted a nice restaurant for a Sunday brunch that was close to the Pantages, as we had matinee theater tickets. We were one of the first people to arrive that morning so had our pick of dining options. We chose the open patio with table umbrellas. It was a nice day and we could look out over the plaza. The food and service was outstanding. Our waiter paid attention to details and the egg white omelette was perfect. Try the Monkey Bread. It is a meal in itself."

  • "The Grill is our favorite restaurant for a special night out in Hollywood. The ambiance is wonderful whether your seated inside or out on the patio. We decided to dine here prior to going to the theater and it was a fabulous choice. Our waiter took extra special care of us with our special menu request in honor of my dad and was mindful to get us out in time for the show. The food was spectacular and added to our overall enjoyment of the evening. All in all a fabulous dining experience."

  • "Very fast and courteous, pleasant service. We enjoyed the lobster ravioli and tuna appetizers, the stake with creamed spinach, and the fudge brownie pie was delicious. We will come back."

  • "I Love dining at The Grill - soooo accommodating and great service fabulous food... the AHI TUNA SASHIMI is off the hook. I'll always grab a meal here whenever I can... like before my shift at work, or on a break, or before a movie at the Chinese theatre. This place is always on point!"

  • "I love my food and was looking forward to eating at the Grill but it was very disappointing the food not great the fries shocking the steak did not have much flavour very limited wine selection and what i wanted they did not have the service was bad and fake at the end the waitress went your from Australia let me explain the gratuity well I am from the UK and I know how to tip and I know how to be sincere I should have see the warning sign when we walked in and the place was empty on a saturday night well now i know why $220 for two people have one corse shocking."

  • "We went before a show at the Pantages, and definitely made the right call. Food was incredible (especially the butternut squash soup, and the side of mushrooms), and we were pleasantly full when we left. Service was stellar and we had multiple people who assisted us throughout our meal. First time there, and will definitely make a visit again when we're in the area!"

  • "We for an early New Year's Eve Dinner. Best Filet Oscar I ever had!!! It was a special so if it's ever on the menu I would highly recommend it!! Not sure if we were a little too early, we arrived at 5:30, but it was just a little off this time. We did not get their bread and relish tray, because they were not serving it that night but 1/2 hour later everyone got it! Then they were out of a wine on the list but they did offer a sub for same price, which was great of them. Everyone's dinner was excellent! but I also recommend not having a trainee on a known busy night! All and all great time for all. Happy New Year!"

  • "We recently had tickets to attend a concert at the Kodak theater and since we live in Orange County we decided to drive up early to have dinner before the concert. After doing some research on the options that were available we decided to try out The Grill. We made a reservation through OpenTable and ended up arriving early - there were 2 seats available at the bar so we decided to sit there and not wait till our table was ready. We enjoyed drinks and a leisurely dinner with plenty of time to walk to the theater for our concert. It was nice because they did have a Tapas Bar Menu as well as being able to choose from the regular dinner menu. A very convenient location with good food and drinks!"

  • "We went early for a show at the Dolby Theater. Service was terrible, food was awful. Finally called over the mgr. and complained. To their credit, they did adjust the bill. The waiter couldn't have cared less about our experience except to say he put the food order in on time. Will not be back!"

  • "Disappointed in the food. Nothing was very good. Few things were served as ordered - and it wasn't even busy. Our waitress, however, and the other servers and wait staff around our table were very nice, friendly and helpful. It's a convenient location in Hollywood when attending any of the local theaters. It's too bad that the food is only mediorcre and not worth the price."

  • "Best to sit outside overlooking the Hyland/Hollywood center. It is good people watching. Although the inside reminds my of a cool classic restaurant. The food is classic and good."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Very disappointed experience. Lobster bisque was good but that was all. Wedge salad had some undescribable blue cheese dressing that looked and tasted like cottage cheese. The mac and cheese was tasteless. They brought the main dishes out first when we specifically said soup first. There were a bunch of management suits walking around that looked like mob bosses but no one ever asked us if our meal was any good. Other than the very good sourdough bread, the rest was a waste of money, and based upon their prices, bring a lot with you."

  • "There were three of us dining at the Grill in Hollywood. It was very convenient as we were going to a show at the Dolby Theater. We sat outside on the patio and the service was very good. Feeling like a light meal, I enjoyed the lettuce wedge with delicious roquefort dressing and also a bowl of lobster bisque. I also wish they would offer a CUP of this soup as it is very rich. The entrees are quite pricey so this restaurant is not for someone who is watching their wallet. The wait staff was very attentive. Go here but be ready to pay $$$$! One major disappointment is the absence of their wonderful meatloaf. Maybe if enough people miss it, they will think about adding it back on their menu! Overall, a good experience!"
