  • "The food and service was very good, but the overall experience was over priced. I know you can have a meal as good as this in Dallas for 2/3rds of the cost of the place."

  • "Sunday, July 20, 2014 a guest and I enjoyed wonderfujl Crab Cabe Benedicts and potatoes as we chatted uninterupted by loud background noise or inconsiderate staff. Our waiter was the essence of politeness and consideration, which was particularly appreciated because my guest is a little hard of hearing. She said as we left she had greatly enjoyed her first visit. I on the other hand was very pleased that The Grill fulfllled all my needs in entertaining a great old friend. This is what I have come to expect of The Grill over the years, and I am grateful. Thank you. Terence C Roper"

  • "I have been visiting the Dallas Grill since it opened; I used to visit the Beverly Hills location on a regular basis. Their steaks are some of the best in town and now they offer many toppings to accompany them. This visit steak tartare was one of the featured starters. It used to be on the menu as a regular item. If you like tartare, and it is on the menu, it is a definite must have. Seafood - crab cakes - are the best I've eaten in town. The wine steward, Paul, is very knowledgeable and reliable. Highly recommended."

  • "Susy and I are customers at "THE GRILL" for many years. We know Daniel Winans, Executive Chef and General Manager personally, as well as the Staff, Morty Jones, Manager, Alexis Maddox, Private Dining Coordinator, Christopher, Maitre-D and Sam, and of course, our favored Waiter, James. We had many Family gatherings in a Private Room, (like 50th Wedding Anniversary, Birthdays etc.,) and everything was "FIRST CLASS"! THE GRILL is like our second Home for eating.... Thank you!"

  • "It was good, but at $20.00, it was overpriced, much like other entrees on the menu. The service was good, but we were the only ones there. Still, at this venue (galleria) the choices are either here, of the Grand Lux, which is very crowded and noisy. I would select here."

It was everything I expected and more. Top quality service, the food was awesome and the appreciation we received by choosing to dine there made it all worthy. The catered to our needs and made sure we had everything we wanted. Talk about above and beyond! We've already made July 4th plans when our extended family comes to visit!"

  • "I came for lunch. The waiter was knowledgeable and pasisonate when describing the specials. The Ceaser Salad wasn't that good, it seemed to lack flavor. The salmon was SUPERB! The spinach mash was also excellent but needed more salt/butter. Over all, I would come back for dinner, "

  • "We enjoy eating at the Grill on the Alley several times per year. They had their first Easter brunch this year and we decided to give it a go. To be honest, it was a bit of a disappointment. The food and the service were not up to their usual high standards. Perhaps their delicious food (stunningly delicious crab cakes) just doesn't tolerate sitting on heated warmers. The roasted meats were delicious, especially with creamed horseradish on the side, but the dessert table was a disappointment. We know their desserts, where was the raspberry sauce for the key lime pie, where was the ice cream or whipping cream for the brownie?"

  • "We were looking to indulge a little bit, and we had not been here in several years. We were not disappointed. We made a reservation & were sat right on time. Server was personable & knew the menu very well. Cocktail menu had lots of interesting choices. The lobster bisque was excellent, and the pork chop was huge & prepared very well. The mixed greens salad was exactly what it sounds like- nothing special. The crab stuffed trout was very good. Side dish portion was huge. We had the cauliflower au gratin and wished the cauliflower had been cooked a bit more. This isn't a place we'd go often because of the prices, but it was a nice treat. The bar seems like a great spot for meeting friends for happy hour."

  • "We have been to Grill on the Alley several times. It was perfect for a quieter dinner and date night with my wife. We booked a table late in the day and were pleased to get a nice cozy booth. The appetizer specials were both very good - seafood trio and tuna tartare. We split the special bone-in New York steak and frankly it was ok - nothing special. The wines selectedf rom the decent wine list was great as was the carrot cake we split. So overal a good night except the $58 steak was nothing to write home about. Service was good and unobtrusive as always."

  • "While our party of 4 enjoyed our experience at The Grill, we payed with a generous gift card & went over. No question, the food was top notch with generous portions, & the staff was very attentive & friendly, but there was something about the atmosphere or location that just didn't, match the ~ $25-$45 entrees & virtually all $50+ (mostly +) bottles of wine (mall restaurant but can't enter from inside mall--on purpose, I'd bet). If that's not an issue for you, then definitely try it out. We had calamari, beef medallions (cooked perfectly), pork chop with blackberry sauce, fresh trout, decadent brownie pie & apple cobbler. Each item wonderful! Re: noise, we were in a booth and were not bothered at all by the noise level."

  • "My wife and I dined here on Valentine's Day weekend, and found it to be a great experience. The food was excellent. Extensive wine list too. We arrived a little early, and enjoyed some specialty cocktails at the bar, then moved to our booth for the main dinner. There was a small sequencing issue getting all of our ordered food to the table (probably because I ordered the Prix Fixe option, and my wife ordered from the regular menu), but the staff well corrected the issue and ensured we had a great dinner. It might be tempting to look past this choice because of it's Galleria Mall location, but don't. We would definitely return!"

  • "Our experience was very good. We were running late due to road construction and excessive congestion in the parking lot (Valentine's weekend). Upon our arrival, we were still very warmly greeted and received excellent service from our waiter, Stephen. The steaks were superb and cooked exactly how we like them. The bread is excellent - very crusty, yet tender on the inside. Baked potato was good - could have been warmer. Cheesecake drizzled with rich chocolate was yummy. We had a very comfortable oval booth, and we appreciated that we were NOT stuffed in a corner because we have a teenage (17) boy. I noticed very young children dispersed throughout the restaurant - a nice touch - welcoming. The restaurant is very peaceful and quiet."

  • "I was somewhat disappointed with Valentines day 3 course dinner. I chose the 18oz prime steak. It was cooked nicely medium rare, but fell short of a prime steak. It was to lean, somewhat tough, and lacked the prime flavor. However, it had a basaltic drizzle that's was quite tasty. My wife had the steak Oscar filet nicely cooked medium rare, but lacked flavor and was not juicy. Ambiance was nice, service was very good, the wait staff was very pleasant. I might give the restaurant another try, but would avoid the special, and would order alacart."

  • "As many times as I have been to the Dallas Galleria, I had never noticed restaurant. I actually found it on Open Table and read all of the great reviews. I selected The Grille for our Valentine's Dinner. The food was delicious and the service great. The Bacon Mushroom Mac & Cheese and the Key Lime Pie were excellent! Our waiter provided great service, even hiding the gift bag my husband brought in until he was ready to give it to me after dinner. We had a great evening. We would definitely recommend it to others and we will also be back!"
