Valentine's Day dinner. Did was very good, but the service was a bit slow. Don't think they were staffed for a full restaurant.

This is tough to write.

We have been coming to Grille 43 since it opened in 2008-9 and have loved that family friends opened such a good food joint for burgers and weekend nights in the neighborhood. I will say the food is always taste great, fresh, and unique.

I am hoping this isn't a new trend but the service was less than par. Not only we were in the dark on the mishaps, I know it happens,but I felt there was no level of interest in hospitality or morale. I was there with a friend for lunch and usually everything is fresh, refreshed, and rolling for every occasion. This time it was slow, not as fresh on drinks/refills, and the server tried to pull one over on us regarding the bill. I believe she should of come clean when she returned the receipts to sign but decided to not say a word. The place wasn't even busy. My friend caught the mishap from her bank as we were leaving, she was charged more than three times the bill. I went back into the restaurant and they hassled me trying to play it off like it didn't happen. Thankfully, the manager on duty was responsive, kind, and understood my concern but it took some asking for the truth. I hope the servers will not pretend that their oversight was right, nor lying was the way to go. Its discouraging to go out and spend hard earned money when the service is worse than McDonald's. I hope management is able to find some new staff.

I can't say I want to go back.

Our group had dinner here before a concert at Genesee Theater. It was a fun get together and the food was very good. Our server was very pleasant, but seemed to be stretched as it took a while between stops. Overall a nice experience and I would recommend it.

Sadly, this was not the experience that we expected. The server was inattentive and twice messed up the drink order. Worse was the food which was awful. The order for filet mignon oscar was terrible and expensive. The steak was fatty and full of gristle. The crab was fishy and hollandaise sauce was bitter. The waitress breezed by to ask if everything was good, but did not wait for an answer. The other two meals were just okay. The bill totalled over $150.00 and not worth the cost. We will not go back and do not recommend.

Not recommended for a large group like we had. Most people were done eating by the time the last 3 dishes were served :( Not all requests were honored (no sauce, extra cheese, etc) Most of group said their dishes were tasty but portions were a little small. Chicken was so overcooked, I could not bite it. Maybe that is why it came out last. It was probably forgotten. Wait staff was good with providing refills, etc and were friendly. Kitchen needs some improvement.

Service was slow, inattentive and unapologetic. We were given the lunch menu at dinner, not offered the wine list or told the specials, our water ran out and didn’t get filled until we tracked someone down. We were sitting for over an hour before we got our food; I ordered a salad with no cooked components and they didn’t even dress it! Others at my table reported mediocre food as well. Overall we were disappointed.

Enjoyed the food and wine. An appetizer ordered was not provided until we reminded the servers. Apparently the kitchen staff missed it.

The branzino special was delicious! My husbands rib eye was fine—a little too much sauce for his liking. Great greeting and fabulous service all around. This place is a hidden gem. It’s off our beaten path but we were very happy to be here tonight!

Went there yesterday for a small Holiday Party with co-workers. Our server Susan was excellent and very attentive. Food was really good. Will be going again.

Grill No. 43, it it’s “no mans land” location may not having one expect much. However for an impromptu friends get together for a late dinner, it proved to be an ideal choice. Our server was simply lovely and kind. The specials were special, with rave reviews for both the steak and the risotto. Raves for the parmasean garlic fries. The interior atmosphere is quite appealing. Really a hidden gem.

An enjoyable lunch experience. Plenty of options on the menu for a wide variety of tastes.

Unfortunately on this occasion the food was below the usually high standard we have encountered in the past. Though still respectable, the salmon this evening was over cooked and the crab cake more full of filler than crab. Service was fine - attentive and respectful - though perhaps not quite as professional as in the past. We will assume this an off-night and return soon for another look.
