During Lent it is often difficult to find a restaurant with more than choice or two of meatless meals. Grille 29 had several outstanding ones. Hubby went with the Salmon Brulee (which I have also ordered before) and we both think it is outstanding. I tried the trout; also outstanding. OKAY..we are over 60. It is wonderful to go to a restaurant that makes conversation possible, that has wonderful food, excellent service and a great wine and dessert list. ALWAYS have a wonderful time at Grille 29 Birmingham.

We always enjoy Grill 29. The venue and service is always pleasant. The menu is not pretentious and features nicely proportioned dishes that are very good.

We arrived Sunday at noon and the restaurant was barely patronized except for the bar which was crowded, extremely loud, full of low class people wearing jeans and guzzling liquor, and many of them had their children with them but not watching the children as they ran around unsupervised. Yelp said it was an upscale restaurant with 4 dollar sign indicating it was expensive. Wrong. There were numerous entrees around $15-$20, and others for less, and they all looked so mediocre. The restaurant looked dingy and the menus were sticky. It was awful. We will never go back.

They were packed when we arrived. Many large parties were there- even a huge wedding party. But their service was spot on. We were given prompt service and the food came out much quicker than we anticipated. And it was delicious. Had scallops for an appetizer and I had the ribeye and my daughter had the salmon. All flavored good and cooked perfectly. WIll be back!

Really slow service and the food seemed to be recently reheated in a microwave :(. We were there for almost 20 minutes before we were served water.

Two older couples who wanted a nice quiet dinner. Service was exceptional, especially by the General Manager. I wish you had standard baked potatoes though.

Six of us ate dinner at Grille 29 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding! Get the Orange Beach salad for a light dinner...or the beef short ribs for a heavier meal. Both are delicious.

Service was terrible and food was just okay. Waiter seemed completely distracted. Ordered a glass of wine before my steak arrived and on my last bite of steak I told her Nevermind but she still tried to charge me for it.

Server said things she didn’t deliver upon like cracked pepper and clean utensils. Food came out warm but not not. Served us espresso with dessert that was also lukewarm.

I really enjoyed the experience. It was my mother's birthday and she loves the salmon. It was a memorable birthday for her. The energy there was upbeat and positive. I enjoyed the playlist of music. I will definitely go back. Everyone at the table ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meal.

Thank you and keep up the good work!

My waitress was really overwhelmed. She had 2 parties of multiple people and then it was my mom and I. I had to ask her to light the candle at my table and we waited almost 10 minutes before our drink order was taken. Once she was at the table we were taken care of but we had to wait after making simple requests. She was a great waitress just overwhelmed.

Normally I would but not after this experience “no”. The waitress we had on Valentines Day was horrible. We saw her 2 times the entire time we were there. When she took our drink order and when brought our drinks to the table. She never came back to our table to ask if we needed anything else. Worst experience I have ever had eating out before.

Our meal was outstanding! The shrimp and grits was very tasty. I got the gravy on the side. My husband’s filet was perfect. The house chopped salad was excellent!! The Margaritas and the blueberry lemon drop cocktail were also very good! Since it was Valeywe ordered the chocolate brownie with ice cream. It was also very good. We will definitely come back!

Valentines Day lunch was great! Chef Timothy is a gift to the Brookwood area. Rob was our service and was top notch. We ordered bacon jam scallops filet mignon and Oscar grouper. I like to try different things but I found out I don’t like grouper but the appetizer was outstanding and the filet was cooked just right!!

It was my birthday and I was not really impressed with the food. I ordered the ribeye and our food came to the table luke warm. The restaurant was not crowded so I don’t understand that. Also, I noticed the manager approach another party and greeted them and just ignored us. I do not think I will return.

I am writing about the Birmingham, Alabama Brookwood Mall Grille 29 location at which we dined on February 8, 2020. When we arrived a little earlier than our reservation, we were immediately escorted to a private booth with a window. Perfect ambiance!

We were greeted soon by our waiter, Mason, who turned out to be the epitome of a great food attendant. I ordered a Tanqueray martini, made to my taste. My wife ordered the Beef Tenderloin Tips and I had an Island Ribeye. We both chose asparagus and hasselback potatoes as sides. The potatoes were a special culinary surprise...highly recommend. Our meals were exemplary in every aspect.

We will be returning soon to this top-notch restaurant. It met and exceeded all our expectations.
