Grille 66 & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Grille 66 has been our favorite in Fort Lauderdale for over 10 years. The view, the outstanding seafood, and the best steaks I've had (sorry Omaha). Service is attentive, but not overwhelming. All my guests have agreed and can't wait to visit for a trip to Grille 66.
Food was pretty good scenery was very nice ,water views with all the yachts, if I had to say anything negative, it would have to be about food accommodation . I requested for my meal not to have a specific item in this case grilled tomatoes and I was told it was premade? Now for the amount of money for the dish itself I would think that would not be an issue but to each its own. Overall it was a nice experience
Several years ago they were spectacular..... food, ambience, service.... all EXCELLENT. I don't know hat happened. New owner??? New management??? Food was average to even poor (i.e. - 6 oysters and 3 were rancid). Service was non-existent (i.e. - almost had to tackle the waiter after 15 minutes just to get an ice-tea refill, also table was not bused and dirty appetizer plates were on the table when the dinner was served...... what did the servers do.... the dirty plates were simply pushed to the side...... I had to ask a server to take a plate and they actually left two dirty appetizer plates in the middle of the table throughout dinner. THEN, prior to desert, they only bused 1/2 of the table and the waiter disappeared again. PATHETIC). You can get better service at a chain steakhouse restaurant.
NO REASON TO GO HERE ANYMORE EXCEPT TO LOOK AT BOATS IN THE MARINA.
Grill 66 should have been stellar. It was anything but. I had a tasteless steak. It was the special 22 ounce boned in ribeye. NO TASTE at all. My son-in-law had the pork chops. They were so spicy and not edible. We started at the bar with tuna sliders. What we got were onion sliders with chopped tuna. The waiter too was less than stellar. Although we chose not to return any of the entrees, one would thing that if 3/4 of each plate were left there likely was an issue. We also never got the second round of drinks that we ordered. Other than that it was great.
Still our favorite after all these years, Grille 66 never disappoints. The ambiance, view and wait staff are all superb and the food...simply the best. A bit crowded during Prime dining times, but worth the effort every time. Highly recommended.
You can always count on Grill 66 for a fantastic meal, great service and if you ordered a "Special" a surprise when the bill comes. I know why the waiter doesn't tell you the price of the "specials" but I'm offended that I would have to ask.
This must and had to have been an off night. My BFF and I wanted meat and seafood. We did get a fabulous meal, but we also were bombarded by less than desirable circumstances. First, someone had defeated on the floor of this establishment and I had to witness the after effects. Second, when paying the bill I was told my card was rejected, a card associated with my checking account with more than $10,000 in it. It was not my card but the restaurants system and my girlfriend and I had to scrape up almost $300 in cash to cover the bill. Given the amount we paid andbthey expectations, it was a bit disappointing. I pay for excellent service and this was not the case on this night. The food and the waiter were excellent.
What an amazing experience. This was our first time at Grille 66, definitely worth going back. Unfortunately I don't remember our servers name, but he was wonderful. We were celebrating with another couple the closing of a business deal. Close friends. We advised the waiter that this was our first time here and that we were there to enjoy the evening and we did. We started with the beef carpaccio and the oysters rockefeller, delicious. 1 bottle of wine, then we asked for his recommendations for dinner, we chose the salmon oscar and another fish dish, spectacular suggestions. Bottle # 2. After dinner we chatted for abou an hour before requesting dessert. The carrot cake, not spectacular, but good. After dessert we had our coffee and called it a night. We were never rushed and we were recommended great dishes. We wish we knew about this place earlier. Thank you for an incredible evening
Made reservations for a friday client dinner. Great service from beginning to end. Seafood items were good. However, the steaks, although cooked properly, were tough. Meat was allegedly a prime cut, but did not taste prime. Good apps, great salad, good sides. Good overall experience, but steaks fell short.
The food was great, but for the price could have enjoyed the same at a closer location. The service was the same. The 5 hour drive for this dinner made it no more special than somewhere much closer that is as on par with this particular type of restaurant. Way overpriced compared to what I could have found a little closer. If you are going to be in the area anyway then you probably would enjoy, but don't make a special trip like we did.
I don't write reviews often, but Grille 66 is certainly deserving of an outstanding one. My boyfriend and I ate here for a celebration dinner and we were amazed with everything ranging from the variety, service, view, and taste. We ordered the tomato and mozzerella to start (one of my favorite appetizers) and it was hands down one of the best I have ever had. We also ordered the mac n' cheese, filet mignon and surf & turf, follwed by creme brulee for dessert. Every part of our dining experience was phenomenal, I do not have a single complaint. While pricey, I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone because it was worth it. I already can't wait to go back next time I am in the area!
My husband took me here for my birthday. The service was amazing. The ambiance was great. I wanted the night to be special and it was just mediocre. The food however was not worth the price. We love red meat and indulge every so often. With that being said we are more critical of steak houses and if you claim to be a steak house we expect you to prepare great steaks to perfection. This is not the case here. We were extremely underwhelmed with how the steak was seasoned, or lack there of. The potatoes could of been seasoned more. The chocolate cake dessert was okay. Again, nothing to rave about. We just had a strong feeling of insipid that lasted after leaving. We unfortunately won't be back here again and won't recommend it.
I was disappointed. Nothing was "bad" everything was just so mediocre. It was my anniversary so I wanted to wowed, but Grille 66 fell terribly short of the mark. Even the mojitos were average at best. How do you mess those up in South Florida? With so many more enjoyable restaurants I dont see myself recommending this one.
Really enjoyed this visit, off season is the time to really enjoy this popular 'hidden gem.' On our last visit Tuesday night, we happened to be there during their summertime Tuesday promotion, of 50% off per bottle. This really gave us a great opportunity to truly enjoy some of their great wines. They paired well with our Steak & Seafood, and our service was top-notch! We can't wait to go back, especially on a Tuesday night. Yum!
