A word from The Grille on Congress
The best things in life aren't trendy or flashy. The best things in life are timeless. Comfortable. The grille is that kind of place. Casually urbane and elegant-without a hint of pretension. The kind of place that feels right- the moment you walk in, and each time you come back. Because you will want to come back. The Grille is a classic where you can relax and catch up with friends and family. Enjoy a casual gourmet fare with an emphasis on great steaks and the freshest seafood- and a unique twist with every dish.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good and so was service. Portions were large enough that both my wife and I took half our dinners home for another day."

  • "Food is very good. Reservation is prompt. Service is very good but noticed that wait staff is unfriendly and to the point. This is my second time with 2 different wait staff and the feeling was the same. They do not make you feel welcome."

  • "We were disappointed in our experience Saturday night. First, the noise level made it uncomfortable to enjoy a conversation. We were seated in a booth, which was fine, but we heard voices and the words spoken from all the tables, not very relaxing. The food was good, no complaints there.....However, we felt rushed, the waiter was removing dishes while I still had food on my plate. We did not feel the warmth that was described when we choose to dine there. Nobody greeted us, andwhen we were given the check, I realized that we were only there 50 minutes. Not our idea of a great and relaxing dinner out. Sorry, not sure we will return"

  • "The Grille on Congress is one of the best local spots for lunch. Their menu contains a wide variety of options from Asian Chicken and Veggies to "Boca's Best Burger". Their shoestring fries are so good, and their biscuits are always warm and fresh! It gets packed during lunch, so I would suggest arriving a little before 12, and/or making a reservation."

  • "The building that houses The Grill on Congress is hidden from view and so almost forgotten by us - but definitely not by others! Our reservation was for 6pm and the restaurant quickly filled up after that with large and small parties in the side room and at the round tables near us. We had a comfortable quiet booth with great pinpoint lighting so we could read our menus without our flashlight app, unlike other recent experiences! The crab and cheese dip was delicious and plentiful for 2; the dinner salads were large too. Our salmon and pork chop meals were wonderful. We were so full we took home a portion for the next night's dinner. The service was attentive and pleasant. We will definitely be back again soon."

  • "We've been here many times for enjoyable food and ambience. This time was a disaster. We invited another couple to enjoy corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's night and we all ordered this dish promoted by the restaurant. The corned beef was stringy as well as fatty, on top of overcooked completely tasteless cabbage, along with plain boiled potatoes. Any flavor had taken a vacation. Being from Boston we've had this dish (often called New England Boiled Dinner) and so were sorely disappointed by the Irish (I believe) owners' lack of standards this night."

  • "What a great restaurant! From the complementary valet, to the welcoming hostess and right up until we leave... We are NEVER disappointed. We were in the restaurant twice in one week. The first time, our server was Holly. She was terrific! Pleasant, helpful, made good suggestions when we asked, attentive and accommodating to meet our needs. The second time we were there Laurie was our server and she was just as wonderful. Holly even came over to our table and was laughing and kidding with us which continued to make for an enjoyable dining experience. Thank you for being one of our "neighborhood gems!""

  • "We often dine at The Grille - the last two tines my entrée has been very dry, as if it were overcooked (entrees were duck and coconut shrimp). Service was great as usual and the other people were happy with their entrees."

  • "As usual, we had a very good meal at Grill on Congress. We always take our out-of-town guests to eat here. There is wonderful variety and the food is always consistently good. Everybody loves the popovers that come to the table warm and fresh out if the oven. They are also great about switching potatoes or pasta for a vegetable. Some restaurants give you a hard time or charge an up-charge. Grill on Congress is a winner!"

  • "revisited after 2 weeks and found food great. I had roasted chicken with sweet potato great combination; 2 others ordered prime rib which had great flavor; my other friend had chicken with bow ties and feta which was also fabulous. We love this restaurant"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Ordered the ribs which proved to be a big mistake. They were dry, overcooked besides having a peculiar taste. I sent then back & opted for the snapper which was mediocre at best. On the plus side, the portions are generous & the waitstaff was very accomodating."

  • "I had been here about two years ago. We came on Saturday evening just after five, as the reservations couldn't be later, because we decided at the last minute. The place was empty, but quickly filled up. The service and food were excellent, although the menu was somewhat limited. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Nothing bad, cold, etc. Our waiter did miss an order for soup, but that was forgivable. Over-all, a good experience, again."

  • "Noise level was high, especially since we were seated by the kitchen. My wife had to send back her pork chops. they were too tough to eat."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "first time here - great place. I had murray's chicken with sweet potatoes and green beans - great, except beans were large and tough; my companion had the special prime rib which was also great, good baked potato and the same beans. Old fashioned restaurant and menu - very refreshing for a change."

  • "No matter how many times we return to The Grille, we are NEVER disappointed!!! the service, the food, the varied menu - always wonderful. Please include a written 'kid's menu' We had two children in our party, ages 8 and almost 6, who both wanted to be able to read their own menu and order from their own menu. Perhaps next time we visit, there might be a typed sheet with a listing of food available for children. We were here to celebrate a birthday on Friday evening - everything was terrific except at the end of the meal the waiter did not ask if we wanted coffee or dessert - he just brought a slice of chocolate cake with a candle without asking if we even wanted the chocolate cake or perhaps if we wanted some other dessert in its place."

  • "Five of us dine out together almost every week. The Grille is one of our favorite places because the food is consistently good, the service is cordial and efficient (Joe is an excellent waiter!), and the prices are reasonable."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:45. The place was crowed. Unfortunately there was a group of 6 that was lingering at the table we were suppose to be seated at. They just sat there. We did finally get seated at 8:15. The owners Suzy and Peter both came over to our table to apologize for the wait. Suzy brought with her six wine glasses and a bottle of there best Cab (a 65 dollar bottle) because we were so patient. Now that's very impressive. Of course we have gone back. The other 4 diners we were with were so impressed."
