The Grill on the Alley - Westlake Village
Graduation CelebrationWhat a wonderful way to make our son feel truly celebrated by having lunch at The Grill on the Alley. The staff was very attentive, as well as the management. He loved the huge portions and felt like a king!

The food, service and ambience are delightful. Having dinner there is always such a treat.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fan of the GrillWe always enjoy going to the Grill on the Alley in Westlake. The food is always delicious, service excellent and they are so wanting to please. Great drinks and wonderful environment. Looking forward to returning for another great meal!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSophisticated ambianceThe Grill never disappoints. Good food served in a great setting is the real reason to choose The Grill, but it is the friendly and efficient staff, front desk to busboy, who make you think THE GRILL IN THE ALLEY when wanting a fine dining experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great. Food delightful,Always great. Food delightful, service impeccable.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful niight under the starsWe celebrated three birthdays on a beautiful Sunday evening on the patio. All entrees, though different, were excellent. Martini was really cold!
Deserts were decadent.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWent there for anniversary dinner and they treated us like royalty. We will be going back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food and wine.Enjoyed the food and wine. Lobster bisque, filet mignon with spinach mashed potatoes. Only complaint was that I felt rushed as everything was served so quickly and multiple waiters and others were so quick to ask to take plates away. and just as the first bite of food entered my mouth, a manager came to ask how it was. Perhaps another time, this super service will be more appreciated.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't believe I've not been before.Worth the trip from Malibu. Beautiful outdoor patio and an overall great restaurant. I found it inTrip Advisor, my go-to restaurant guide, as the number 1 restaurant in Westlake Village (out of 69 I think). Fine dining in Westlake - fantastic. Another steak house, yes, but still it's another option. Bread was nice and warm w a hard and tough crust that was great.Rib eye special w a blue cheese crust was rally tasty. My crab cake entree came w a lemon butter sauce but they only ut on about a teaspoon or it. One of the many white jacket clad waiter promptly brought more. Good service. Best: nice and thick paper napkins w "Grill on the Alley" printed on them. Perfect for my powder bath's collection which now proudly boasts Katsuya, Duke's more5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was first rateEverything was first rate and this fabulous restaurant. We especially liked our wonderful waiter, Rafael.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMdinner at the grillMy husband and I always enjoy our dinners at The Grill. The food is delicious, the wine is good, and the deserts sinful. The staff is always friendly and accommadating. It is at the top of our lists of restaurants.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite for special mealsI have dined at The Grill several times and am never disappointed. This was a birthday celebration so I ordered the filet mignon with blue cheese herb crust which was outstanding, perfectly cooked. My wife loves the trout almondine, served on the lunch menu, but they were kind enough to prepare it for dinner. The service is excellent, always attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend for a special treat.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful EveningThe Grill on the Alley is a very great resturante. The food is well prepared and the delicious. The wait staff is excellent and well trained. They provide the right level of service without being too present. I highly recommend the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice

We went with their Fillet and Rib-eye at the table all we great...5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service! food isExcellent service! food is also yummy:) great spot for family and friends5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, but not oustanding as usualThe Grill on the Alley is one of our favorite restaurants so our level of expectation is skewed towards the highest end. We've eaten there many times and it was absolutely my #1 choice for my b-day dinner with family last night. The steaks are always great and the lobster bisque is likely the finest in the country. Consistent winners and hard to find any fault! We did a order a few things that we don't normally order and here are two honest disappointments. The Calamari app was luke warm and chewy. Not good. The Grand Marnier souffles were "eggy" and overly airy...they lacked both taste and substance and a broken espresso machine! Carl is the best server, as always, but his assistant was inattentive. The entire entree with no water?5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsFood is great and staff is on top of it. This restaurant is my wife's favorite!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMa restaurant favoriteWe love this place.

Lots of delicious items but strongly recommend the John Dory, the bone-in rib eye steak and the creamed spinach! Always a great experience!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experience!Outstanding dining experience! Consistently good! High quality food and attentive service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Truly Enjoyable EveningService and ambience excellent. Our serving team was attentive but at no time were we rushed. They knew the menu and made good suggestions. Dining room was "old steakhouse" dark wood, new, clean, surprisingly quiet. We could converse in normal tones. Relaxed, calm atmosphere. Well rounded wine list.
Food was outstanding. The braised short ribs may be the best I've ever had. Real ribs, bone in which enhances the flavor immensely. Very good brown sauce. Two companions had fish, the dover sole and the sea bass, both excellent. One in the
party had the brick chicken and was pleased. Hands down the best steakhouse in the Conejo.
A bit pricey, but well worth it. Go there. Go tonight.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur fav!The Grill on the Alley is our neighborhood "go to" restaurant! We can have a big meal or a lite bite.

Many restaurants claim to make real crabcakes and then serve hockey pucks--but this place is legit on crabcakes!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten here many times.I've eaten here many times. The service and the food are always excellent!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a beautiful restaurant,This is a beautiful restaurant, in a beautiful mall, in beautiful Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks .. so it would be hard for anything to go wrong. My sister and I had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday and eating hot fudge brownie something or other .. which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The servers and attendees were very thoughtful and responsive. We had a great time and we thank you.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it. Would go again.Loved it. Would go again. A bitnoisy. Need more chicken low fat options..4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood. Just not up to theGood. Just not up to the original in Beverly Hills4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back.We dined on Easter Sunday evening. The restaurant has a large bar and it was fairly noisy. We were seated in the back of the restaurant so it was acceptable for conversation They have a beautiful outdoor patio that would be great with good weather(it was cold and cloudy the day we were there). Our servers were very good. Would of had a 5 star in this category but the server forgot my husbands coffee with his meal. Sincere apology and the coffee appeared. In all fairness my husband was drinking sparkling water and another beverage and failed to notify the error. My husband says they have the best crab cakes he ever tasted and that is a great compliment as he is from Boston. If you can tolerate rich food the Lobster Bisque is very good.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best restaurantWent there for brunch this Easter with my wife and 10-weeks old baby girl. As always, the staff treated us like royalty. We requested a booth so that the baby and car seat could be next to mom in case a feeding was necessary. The Grill obliged and showed no concern that we had a baby with us that might disturb other customers. Our baby was quiet and once everyone realized she wouldn't make a peep, staff and customers alike came around to check out the new arrival. I digress though....The food as always was outstanding. This is our favorite restaurant and we haven't been in 7 months and we sure cherised every morsel yesterday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always a great experienceAs always a great experience and an enjoyable night out.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakhouseThe restaurant is located in a large suburban shopping mall. This location is a member of a small high-end chain. But not to despair. I have not had a bad meal here or elsewhere in the chain. It serves one of the best - bar none- NY Steaks anywhere. Portions are huge. What steakhouse serves a 16oz steak any more. Bread, salads, potatoes, and vegetables as ala carte additions are also very well done. Service is very professional and attentive. Bar is lively. Compared to other steakhouses in its class it is a bargain, prices are somewhat less than others and includes one side with the main. We travel one hour to get here is it is worth the trip.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA GREAT restaurant! GreatA GREAT restaurant! Great food, great service. What more could you want?3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest hospitality I have seenBest hospitality I have seen in a very long time.
