I went tonight with my wife and I and we absolutely love this restaurant. So sad it's closing. The only thing that didn't convince me was the rude young blonde in the front desk. I told her to smile and she just walked away.. Super rude like if there was something wrong with us. Besides that service was great....... Johnny was super!

The food was phenomenal and so was the service. My husband loved his South African lobster tail and filet. Their truffle Mac n cheese is delicious. Great service and romantic atmosphere (patio dining )

We had a wonderful time at Grille 66. The food was amazing! I had originally requested an earlier reservation and earlier in the day I realized I would not make that time. I called and they were able to offer me a later reservation and honor my request for a patio seat. This was the perfect end to a 55th Birthday celebration.

Probably my issue because I should have asked but they had stone crab legs as a special and we ordered 2. They were a special so not priced on the menu. When the bill came and I saw $55 for these 2 tiny crab legs my mouth dropped open. So not worth it but the seafood platter we ordered was market price and we were charged $75 which was fine because we got oysters, shrimp and lobster for that. Really a disappointment in taste and price for the crab legs. Everything else was outstanding. Next time I’ll know to ask.

Pablo our waiter was great and made us pleasantly comfortable and willing to take us photos when asked. He totally rocks. The food was amazing, I had the free range double chicken breast and mash potatoes, very good and great seasoning and my boyfriend totally enjoyed the double cut lamb chops, he wants to find a recipe similar to make lamp chops at home. Great experience, most definitely would go again.

Grille 66 is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service are always consistent. The food no matter what we order is always exceptional. We started with Oysters Rockefeller which were wonderful. Then had the Signature Salad that was crisp and great. I had the lamb chops and my wife had the lobster pasta dish. Both were fantastic!!
We ended our Valentines dinner with the Carrot Cake. Which was big enough for a Party of 4 to share. What a wonderful dinner and evening.

Took my wife here for an early Valentine’s Day and wish I didn’t.

Requested to sit outside, and I’m glad I did! Walked in to a bustling dining room and a hostess who shouldn’t be the front of house. She was short with us, and made for an appropriate intro to the rest of the night. Went to the bar as we were there at the recommended time 15 min before, and I’m glad we did!

We were sat and no one acknowledged us for a good 45 min?! The drink we ordered from the bartender was the only thing we had for the first 1 1/2 hours (and when it was empty no one came still!). We finally flagged down someone down to order, it’s like we were in no mans land. Food took even longer, but they brought out complementary drinks from the bar?! We needed food to soak it up! We were out of bread and crackers at this point as that was our food.

Food finally came out, some cold, some ok, but definitely not worth the prices. Go to Ruth’s Chris, or anywhere else. Come here for drinks with friends- they’re strong and reasonable.


For these prices, go anywhere else.

This is a bit of a mixed review but I’m a little upset.

We’ve been here several times and the food and service are good. The sommelier is very helpful. During our last visit two things happened that were bothersome and upsetting to my entire table
of 4.
1st I shared a steak with a friend of mine. It was tough and I mean tough. We returned it and waited 15 minutes while another steak was cooked. While we sat there waiting and our wives ate as their food was fine. No offer of a glass of wine while we wait no nothing. It kind of ruins the whole dinner.

2nd. There was a table next to us that was without a doubt the loudest group of people I’ve ever sat next to. One woman in particular was drunk and literally yelling at the table. We told our waiter and he agreed that it was unacceptable. We called the manager and complained. He did nothing about it. Nothing. We couldn’t move as the place was packed. Totally unacceptable.

I know it’s closing and we live close by but based on this latest dinner we most likely will not return. It’s closing anyway so I’m not sure they care.

Maybe it’s south Florida. I’ve noticed people act like they’re in their living room. They speak loudly and they cuss constantly. What happened to a little pride and decorum?

We came here not knowing what we would find.
It was an excellent choice, the food was great the service was great the ambiance was great.
Did I say great enough
We will go back for sure
The only thing that was not to our liking was the beet salad, there were only four small beets, not what we expected.

Quality of food and wait staff outstanding. Hostess/ greeters rude and made no effort to greet us or consider a seating request when the restaurant was not over booked. I recommend management bring in greeters/hostesses that can smile and welcome you into the establishment as a 1st impression- this is critical and should be a no brainer . If you can’t fulfill a seating request simply do so with class and kindness, not b rude and lack communication skills and stare u down like you made a ridiculous outrageous request. Food was spectacular and wait staff as professional as you you’re gonna get.
