Food was good, service excellent, French wine pricey and tasted not good.
Kitchen smell quite obvious, need improvement or sit further away.

The pros for this restaurant are many, food and service are great. In my opinion the decor still looks good but the chairs could be updated, the one I was sitting on could use a new cushion seat!

Very disappointing Valentine's Day meal. Desserts were so simple with no plating at all.
As it was Valentine's Day special, the dessert should at least have some Valentine's Day theme
or heart shaped design. Taste for the main and the rest were just so so......

My quinoa salad was superb. My husband had a halibut burger which he also enjoyed. Our server was very good. I had a lovely glass (9oz) of Malbec — overall a great meal. We will be back!

Not much of a selection on the menu. The waitress did explain the entree dish but want came
To the table wasn’t what I pictured and taste was ok..very rich
If you looking for a romance place to go. This is not it! Old tables and chairs ..the table for a 2 seater..you are to far away to talk
Don’t sit near the window...too cold

It was a last minute booking and then we were late! But the hostess was so nice to us and put us at ease. Our waiter was outstanding. We all had something different and enjoyed it. We loved the cozy feeling and being able to watch the chefs cooking. A great place in a lovely hotel.

Our group of six enjoyed our meal at the American Grille. Everyone enjoyed their selections. The turkey dinner was a great special and a nice way to celebrate American Thanksgiving.
We were all staying at the Marriot, Sheraton or Hilton so the location was very convient.
We also enjoyed Happy Hour next door in the bar and were able to bring our meals to our dinner table. All round good experience. Would go again.

Enjoyed a nice evening here. The last time I visited for dinner was at least 4 years ago, not sure why..in my memory the food was not very memorable. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised this time. The portions are very generous. We ordered mussels and fries. Fall quinoa salad (super comfort food and was delicious). For the entree we shared the grille platter. It was a perfect portion for two. The charred meats (steak and ribs) were really tasty. Service was also very friendly. Finished off with an earl grey creme brûlée. Thank you for a cozy evening!

we have been patrons for years but in general, the food quality has slipped; the staff are superb; specifically the clam chowder, thickness of broth, seems like it was made with cream but now with milk. lastly, the fruit flies are still a problem

We come to the American Grille every month or so and usually have a good meal. Food is high quality and the service is very good. We came on a recent Sunday and I was disappointed to find that they've discontinued their Sunday Prime Rib. This was our usual reason to come to the restaurant.

We were a party of 2 couples to have the lunch on Saturday. The ambience was very nice not too quiet and not too loudly on the lunch time. All of us ordered the seafood dishs. The portions of mussel and halibut with angel hairs were very large. It was very tasty. We definitely shall come soon. The waitress was very friendly.

I went there with my girlfriend and my son. We ordered a Tuna Poke, Cod with seasonal vegetables and cod linguini, all dishes were super tasty and filling. We had no room for desserts. I think what we appreciated most was we could have a conversation and hear each other.

We had an awesome server Amy who was friendly and pretty attentive to our needs. The restaurant was quite busy, more so than I thought it would be. We had the duck breast and halibut pasta, both dishes were really tasty. It's not a huge restaurant so I would definitely make a reservation before stopping by. We didn't try the dessert this time but may spring for it next time. Definitely would come back here! They have lots of high chairs as well so very family friendly.

Birthday dinner here. Food was good. Server was good. We ordered the rack of lamb, which was a big portion so very good for two people to share, We also ordered the Spicy Shrimp and Avocado Salad. That one wasn't spicy at all.. the sauce was a bit too sweet for our liking, but overall.. it was a good experience. Will come back again,.

The service was great, and the food really was outstanding, especially for both presentation and taste. The initial bread basket had nice, warm fresh bread, and some kind of sesame/poppy? cracker leaves? It was great while we waited, and we finished all of that throughout dinner too.
We started with the crab cakes, which I thought were maybe just a tad dry, but didnt really detract too much. For the main course, I had the duck breast, and my wife had the blackened halibut. The duck was medium rare, beautifully tender and tasty, the veggies were cooked to perfection, the potatoes nicely firm, the carrot puree was a wonderful touch to the veggies, and there was none of it left on my plate. The blackened halibut had a nice light crust to it, tender underneath, and very tasty. To top it off, we shared the Chocolate Tres Leches, rich but light, the perfect finish to a fabulous meal! It was a bit of a drive from Maple Ridge, but well worth it, and would do it again. At first I thought the portions seemed a bit small, but after we finished, we were both stuffed. Thanks to the servers and kitchen staff!

I haven't had a salmon cooked so well in a long time. They are currently having a salmon festival special and I ordered a pan fried spring salmon with buerre blanc sauce. The salmon was cooked to perfection with a crispy skin and most and tender meat.
