I was looking for something that was local and no too expensive. I had 8 in my party and wasn't sure how the accommodations were going to be, but i was pleasantly surprised with my experience. The food was outstanding and served in a timely manner. Drinks were always refilled and could easily hear everything that was going on throughout the night. There were multiple parties happening around us and it still felt like a very intimate group setting. Grill 29 would be a place that I would recommend for all types of events.

Everything was great but too much noise. I hate loud voices.it ruins my experience. She I came in and realized what I was facing,I almost left but I had friends joining me and I tried to endure the extremely loud noise level. Please work on that.

This is one of the only restaurants in town that both my 74 year old mother and 12 year old daughter love. It's a beautiful place and the food is super good every single time we go there. Stephen waited our table and he was precious. He was happy to accommodate my daughter's special request and made the whole meal as relaxing as one world hope for a Sunday night dinner with family. We eat here several times a year and have never been disappointed.

We had a group of ladies for a business lunch. Our server and service were fantastic as was the food. I found Grille 29 while looking at info for Birmingham Restaurant Week. While I didn't get there for that week's specials, it did pique my interest enough to go the following week. Will definitely be back!

This restaurant is in the former McCormick and Schmick’s location - has a beautiful stained glass domed ceiling and a large fish tank that kept us intrigued while we waited. Our server Aaron took good care of us. I had the grilled trout - a whole filleted fish well seasoned, with sautéed green beans and shallots. My husband had the tenderloin tips with mashed potatoes. We both had a very good Ceasar salad. They do not serve any bread or noshes before the meal, but our salads were out promptly and our meal followed before we had finished our salads - our server apologized as it was early and I guess the kitchen was processing orders very quickly. Wine list is minimal, but we found one that was good for us.
We will return to eat here.

We had the same waiter that we had for our last year's anniversary. She remembered us and then we remembered her. As a real surprise, she brought us ten large red roses in a vase to commemorate the occasion. The filet was a better cut of meat than the sirloin. So the next time, we will both get the filet.

First time at Grille 29, although we had eaten in the building when it housed a different restaurant. We were impressed. It's large, but quiet. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. It's casual dining.

Meals that might cost $30-35 elsewhere tend to be $19-$30 here. But, as far as we're concerned, no compromise on flavor, good preparation, and lovely plating.

We thought service was available enough but a little stiff and intrusive.

Will absolutely return.
