Grant Grill has always been a favorite, but our last visit was not as good as it has been. We informed our server that we needed to be out by 6:35-6:40 because we had theatre tickets. He said he would make sure that happened. When we were ready for our check, I saw him stand at another table for nearly ten minutes and was not available to bring our check. We asked for help from another staff member and told him we would charge it to the room. He took my room card and did not come back for a bit. When he did he did not have the check. We told him we had time concerns and he brought the bill, but did not bring back my room key. All of this made us unnecessarily anxious and we then had to rush. All unnecessary! Later we came back for an after dinner drink. All the brandies/cognacs were very highly priced--nothing under $45 a drink. Our drinks server said there was a house brandy not on the menu that was more reasonably priced. It was at $12.00. Having very much enjoyed our other times at GG, we left with a bad taste in our mouths.

Avoid the fish. I tried the Chilean sea bass, just OK. aA buddy ordered the Hawaiian fish special, he was not overly impressed. Friends order steak and said that was great.

We were at the Grill for Brunch on Sunday, October 20th .

Inexcusable to serve cold food, but that is what the kitchen sent out. Eggs Benedict prepared and a left to sit. Roasted potatoes that were prepared in the early morning and included hours later.
I find food presented in this way to be inexcusable. And when we were one of two tables in the area, clearly, the Grill is not on a "must go".

I will not return any time soon.

Beautiful setting. Overly attentive wait staff... they interrupted our conversation to refill our 3/4 full water glass. The piano music and drums were too loud to enjoy our conversation.
Food was delicious

Wish I lived closer—Grant Grill is always a treat. We ate dinner fairly early on a Sunday, so we had the added bonus of extremely prompt service since there was hardly anyone else there. We both chose seafood (the scallops and the sea bass), which was exquisitely prepared, plated, and savored happily. For dessert, we split the white chocolate mousse, molded around cherries and dusted with cocoa. I'll make the drive just for more of that perfection!

The well balanced menu of delicious appetizers and entrées would appeal to most appetites. There house-made bread is magnificent. The courteous and efficient wait staff add to the outstanding dining experience. And the added personal touch for our anniversary was greatly appreciated.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Wasn't sure what to expect at a hotel restaurant, but loved the live band playing during dinner and the atmosphere. Price was perfect and a good value for the quality of the food, fresh bread and butter and overall dining experience. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. Can't think of a single thing they can improve upon. Even though it wasn't on the main menu, I got a burger and fries and it was huge, flavorful and exactly what I was craving. Come here, you don't be disappointed.

Overpriced, with poor service. For about $100 a head (with a drink) I think the food could have been better, and the service a bit more friendly. I did notice that older folks were there, maybe that is why they choose to under-season the food. Choose another restaurant if you want a “high end” night out.

We wanted to have a relaxing dining experience with our out of town guest before going to the theater. The food and wine choices, the quality, the presentation and the preparations were all excellent. The service was wonderful as well.

It is important to note that this is a fine dining establishment in a luxury hotel. Therefore, the prices are in keeping with that type of venue. In that sense they provide good value.

This was our 2nd time at the Grant Grill for brunch and the restaurant staff and food continued to please with delicious food and good service. We had the Migas and Tuna Melt for our meals. The tuna melt, size and taste-wise was great - enough to take home 1/2. The Migas was delicious and adequate in size. Table service was good, as we have experienced in the past.

Great brunch. Food and service was excellent.

That being said this really is not a place to bring small children. Their voices carry across the entire restaurant and make talking at you own table next to impossible.
