Scallops were excellent and the focaccia was so good we took it home. Loved the atmosphere too. Definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone and I will dream of the scallops…

We stayed in the hotel one night post cruise. It was our second visit to this restaurant and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Service is top notch. The bread is to die for. We shared a Caesar salad to start and it came split, a touch we appreciate. Portion was very fever and delicious. We both had the peppercorn tuna which is served rare and sliced. The accompaniments are unique and add to the flavors. I was surprised with a slice of cheesecake with a candle for me birthday. I was really pleased. Oh to visit San Diego more iften

We understand that Covid has been challenging. Service was very slow. Over an hour to get our food when the restaurant was not busy. About 39 minutes after we ordered, wai we were informed us they were out of the salmon we ordered. We got swordfish instead. Soup and veggies was really good. Fish a bit dry. Lovely place and has a great reputation. Will try again. But this experience was disappointing.

Outstanding service, presentation, and execution. The kanpachi crudo was delicate with Asian herbs and sauces. It was one a unique and delicious appetizer. The lamb chops were perfectly grilled. The tuna au poivre was spectacular. Dessert and after dinner drink selections were top notch. The jazz duo accompanying our dinner made for a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

My son had the aged ribeye it was delicious. Husband had the rack of lamb, tender, mild, cooked perfectly and a large portion. I had the mock turtle soup which was rich and savory. They served the most wonderful fresh baked focaccia I’ve ever eaten. It is a go to place for us when we are in town. Also the staff and particularly our waiter was outstanding!

What a lovely evening! We actually had dinner at a table near the bar. Archie Thompson was there and it was delightful. The service is phenomenal. You don’t get that much anymore. Seems as if they kept their long time employees and they are doing a fabulous job. Highly recommend.

The grant grill we attended on several occasions and recommended other family members who also enjoyed the whole atmosphere. With the closure for 18months and the reopening the Grant grill has been consisted with their overall quality and quantity of service and food. The grant Grill is a must experience.

We got the royal treatment the moment we got in the door. The ambiance, food and service was excellent. The complimentary warm focaccia bread was a wonderful compliment to any drinks and starters. I had their Striped Sea-bass and my husband the aged ribeye. Both dishes were exceptionally delicious. We were celebrating our anniversary and the Chef brought for us a Cheesecake for us to share. Jose our server went over and beyond his call of duty. Overall a wonderful and memorable fine dining experience.

Jazmine was a delightful server. Friendly & helpful. The problem occur when my guest declared their allergy to pork & pork products. The scallop dish my guest ordered was garnished with sausage even though we asked for it not to be.
The chocolate chip cookies that we ordered for dessert were cold even though we waited 15 minutes for them to be freshly baked!!

Second time to visit the Grant Grill. Has been several years. Great ambiance, and service. Originally seated at table with bench on one side. A bit low for petite women. Staff graciously moved us to all chairs for a better fit. Food excellent with one minor note. Ribeye was just a bit fatty. Will definitely visit again.
