    The service was extremely slow though friendly. OUr entrees came out cooked properly (medium rare steak), but the food was luke warm like it had been sitting out for a while. Overall it tasted good, but there was definitely something lacking. I was going to order desert, but it took the waiter 10-15 minutes from giving us the dessert menus to asking if we wanted anything. By the time he came back, I didn't want dessert anymore.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/3/2011
    Once seated at a table w/an incredible view. We were ignored for about 15 minutes when finally we sought out a waiter for a menu. We were ready to order but another 15 minutes went by, no waiter. Seeking out the waiter again, we ordered. The food came and my chilean sea bass was horribly overcooked, so bad it needed tartar sauce. Sought out waiter again and told him of overcooked fish but by the time he came back, it was ridiculous to send back. One drink order was taken, we were not offered a second drink, but again finally located the waiter and told him our guest needed another drink and he left to fill that order, completely neglecting to ask if we would also like another drink. Coffee came, ice cold. Not a pleasant experience.

    What a great experience! We were visiting NYC for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Run and decided to eat here. We learned that they will be closing soon and sadly, not re-opening a new location. The owner does have other restaurants but we learned how special this restaurant was and the history of it during 9/11 events and it is heartbreaking to see that their leases have not been renewed due to renovations in the building. If you get the chance to go here before they go please do!! We had incredible food, wine and a perfect sunset to go with it! I will NEVER FORGET it!

    The view was excellent, over looking the water to Jersey City. You can lose yourself in the scenic view on a nice summers day. The service could have been a little more attentive but all and all it was a great spot for a special birthday lunch.

    The view of the harbor is wonderful, but you pay for it with somewhat overpriced food and wine. Be aware that the kitchen closes at 8 pm or so -- this is a spot for businessmen more than diners-out.

    This place came highly recommended for the financial center area. The views are teriffic, but unfortunately that's where the good ceased. The restaurant area was freezing and we asked them to raise the temp, but they did not. It took us nearly two hours to get through appetizers and entree's (no dessert or coffee). The salads were not very good, though the entree's, including the side dish of spinach, were pretty good. For the price, though, it's not worth it - even if an expense account item.

    We had a client lunch yesterday at the Grill Room and although the staff were very accomodating when amneding our booking time and guest numbers by phone, the service was slow. Food was great although a dish had to be sent back beacuse it was cold, perhaps it had been out to long waiting to be served. Atmosphere is great and a good spot for a buiness lunch however bring layers this place is FREEZING cold!!!

    We had an absolutely amazing anniversary dinner. The wait staff greeted us and wished us a Happy Anniversary. The hostess even brought over champagne to our table. We really enjoyed the meal, the grilled shrimp was our favorite. The view as perfect! We flew in for dinner and turned around and returned to Philadelphia without a hitch. Thank you Grill Room staff for making our 11th extra special. The Sefers.

    We ordered the seafood platter and enjoyed everything on it. The view of the park, the water, and the sunset was excellent. Best of all was the service. First, I requested for a quiet table with a view, and got exactly what I wanted. Then I had problems with my reservations and dining points on OpenTable. The managers were very accommodating, patient and extremely helpful. They sorted the problem out with OpenTable and even called me back to make sure that everything was ok. I highly recommend this place and I'll definitely be back.

  • Avoid the Steak Sandwich!
    food4meVIP
    Dined on 3/11/2011
    Having very much enjoyed my prior meals at The Grill Room, I was very disappointed last Friday. My guest and I asked the waiter whether he would recommend the steak sandwich or the hamburger, and he suggested the steak sandwich. It was almost inedible as the pieces of steak were tough and had virtually no flavor. Fortunately, the french fries were excellent, and there was a good pickle and a tiny but nice bit of coleslaw. I was embarrassed for my guest, but he was too polite to say anything.

    This was a wonderful experience, once I found it. The address is listed as 225 Liberty Street, which I could not find. I asked several people where The Grill Room was, and was sent on a wild goose chase around World Financial Center. Had the address been listed on Open Table as "in the Winter Garden", I would have found it much easier. The food and service was terrific, and the view was spectacular.

    Considering how few dining options there are left in the WFC, this is a decent option to eat some pretty good food in a more scenic setting. Hostess was extremely accommodating, service was nice and fast, drinks were strong. It is pricey relative to other similar places, but once again, there aren't that many alternative options nearby.
