This was the worst meal I have been served in a while. To begin the service was slow which can happen when busy. Don't get the Grandview chicken breast. The chicken and risotto came out lukewarm with a congealed sauce with the chicken rather dry. I thought I was going to lose my meal. It took so long to get the meal I didn't want to wait for another meal. They probably would have stuck it in the microwave anyway. When the manager was made aware of this I was reimbursed for my beer ($8.00), yet my dinner was $26. Should have gone to Biehl Street.

Made reservations and selected regular seating and when we got there they would only offer us seating at the bar. With a recent knee replacement this is nearly impossible. I asked about another area and was told it was reserved for a party of 9. My party of 2 was not important enough to them.

It was just ok. Went because someone said the cocktails were very good. There were 3 dining areas: large outside patio, inside bar-busy, lively, and live band, and a very bland dining room- seemed like an afterthought in terms of decor and ambiance. The patio was too full I assume and the table we were supposed to sit at was right in front of the speakers/band, so we were seated in the dining room. Started with drinks and calamari-drinks were nothing special and calamari was way too salty. Server was very sweet, but not good. She brought our salad and our entrees at the same exact time so our entrees were cold by the time we had finished our salad. The goat cheese salad was amazing though! Waters were often empty for a long time before being refilled. The whole experience was just ok. I feel like with the right table/area of the restaurant and a few good dishes, you could have a great experience, but ours wasn’t. Probably won’t go back.

We dined inside because it was too windy to sit outside. Our waitress, Kacie (sp?) was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and exceeded our expectations. We’ve dined at the Grandview many times and have never been disappointed.

This was our first visit in quite awhile and we were not disappointed with the evening. The server recognized us and welcomed us back. She was handling a business meeting as well as our table but she didn’t miss checking on us and delivering excellent service. We were impressed with the menu selections and both tried something new. The Scallop entree was delicious!
We’ll definitely return.

Bartender did not know how to make drinks. I've noticed this on other visits, should have ordered a beer.
Food was cold, beef shank. But would have been good. Decided on coffee and dessert too. Again coffee barely warm, lava cake - not sure what it was. Just cold ice cream with some chocolate sauce, no cake.
Spent over $50, really not worth it. I'll think carefully about what I order if I go back.

Very loud even in back room away from bar and band. My husband's meal was inedible because it was too salty. A manager came around and asked and we told him but nothing but an "I'm sorry" was offered. Also, my sister ordered a cocktail that did not come until her entree came and that was after reminding the server twice. Again, told the manager it took a full 40 minutes for my sister's drink to come and all that was offered was an I'm sorry. I've always enjoyed Grandview but after this experience not sure I'll return.

Out for dinner with friends. House cosmo was very orangy and very refreshing! The shrimp scampi dish was not your typical scampi but was yummy. Loved the lemon butter shrimp with the crispy risotto cake. Our party also tried the fish & chips, meatloaf and chef salad. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was very attentive. Only complaint was that the restaurant was not very busy at the time and the hostess seated the next party in the door at the table right next to us. No social distancing space between the two tables.

The filet was not presented with the temperature I asked. The gnocchi potatoes/cauliflower were dry. The chocolate mousse was bland and did not taste like most mousses that I have had

The basil salad dressing was delicious and the shrimp appetizer was very, very good! The music was nice!

This is not the first time that I have been there. We actually gave this restaurant another try after Christmas Eve with not good service. It is not the right place for us.

We went with the twin filet meal for two that came with an appetizer, a dessert with champagne and a single rose bouquet for my wife @ $150.00. Our drinks were separate. Our total bill was $196.00 + tip. We never did receive our champagne and when I let the waitress know after we had eaten or dessert she was very apologetic. Now please understand we are not strangers to a $200.00 bill but when paying these prices we do expect a high quality meal. What we received was completely to the contrary.

Our filet mignons were smothered in a horribly over salted gravy and completely overcooked asparagus that was completely unrecognizable as asparagus. Please understand how bad this meal was. I never leave a steak behind but this meal was so bad that I didn't even finish an 8 oz filet mignon. I walked away from almost 4 oz of meat... My wife walked away from more than 3/4 of her steak. It was horrible!

I expressed our concerns about the food and the bill for food that didn't rise to the level of the bill to our waitress. We were not looking to get a free meal in any way shape or form but we do expect quality when paying these prices.

The waitress did bring my concerns to the manager and returned with the offer of taking 15% off of our bill. I was slightly satisfied with this but would have appreciated a visit from the manager to address our concerns.

Sadly, what should have been a lovely evening was soured by the procession of events. I can assure you that we will not be back.
