    Last year, came here for my husband's birthday & had a fantastic experience with everything. This year, we decided to come here for our Anniversary & celebrate with a group of 8 . We are very very disappointed. They had a band playing, which would have been fine, if they didn't have one of their speakers facing into the dining area, & was way too loud. None of could enjoy conversations without yelling across to eachother over the music. Disappointed with the dinner, sent it back, our only saving grace was our waiter CJ, who was great. Sorry to say, we won't be back anytime soon.

    CJ was super attentive. He had several tables across the dining area but managed to move strategically without being overwhelmed ( in my opinion.. we had a small child in our party) he took accountability immediately when he forgot our order of buffalo shrimp and made it right.. businesses would thrive if there were more CJs on their team!! GO CJ!!!!

    My guest and I had the double cut Pork Chop and it was insanely delicious! And the mash potatoes were home made style. Started with the beet salad that was mouthwatering just at sight and tasted Devine. Our server was awesome and the owner Tony was a delight to speak with as we were leaving he asked how everything was and spoke with us for a bit. Seating was so comfortable and not too close together. 10 stars if I could!!

    The food was very good, the restaurant was nearly empty in a Saturday night at 7:30pm. We were surprised at this and wondered what may be wrong. The menu has changed and the prices have certainly increased. I’m wondering if that was the cause of the establishment not being busy. Over all would go back.

    Haven't been here in awhile. Might be awhile before I try again. Raw Bar, shrimp were great, sushi good, oysters tiny and tasteless. Prime Rib was a 2 out of 5. Had a glass of red that was undrinkable; left on my bill, had 2 sips. Mind you I had two drinks at the bar prior and a beer after. Bartenders were good. Band was fun. (Dinner and wait service was rough)

    We met friends of ours for dinner. The food was great, as usual, and my prime rib was cooked perfectly. The noise level is a gamble, though, as there was a birthday party this night that was extremely loud, but you can usually carry on a conversation.

    Reservation are not being honored although patrons are reserving on OpenTable. The high top tables are first come first serve. Many of my friends left because of this underhanded process. Also, the happy hour drinks had two separate prices charged. We were charged higher prices on the night there’s a band named Valerie Adams and the Dimensions. Although, the raw bar menu has a set reduced price for certain drinks all day Weds., we were charged a higher price for the Sangria. Lastly, the female owner (there’s a male owner who was very nice) was very rude along with our server. The food is much better than earlier this yr.

    20 minutes to get served a drink. Waiter seemed distracted. Confused order for salads. Two Caesar one Beet one Wedge. Long time to come from kitchen. Waiter mumbled that the kitchen was slow (not my problem) Waiter explained he put entrees on hold until we finished salads. Entrees came out on very hot plates with steak over done Not happy

    No problem with the table or reservations. The service was awful. Slow and nearly unresponsive. No plates for pizza, no chopsticks for sushi, no service to speak of. The place has to be aware of their untrained waitstaff but they are too pricey for service that ruins the meal. I dislike having to say this but I wouldn’t go back for a second torturous meal.

    They had a set menu for Mother's day. All the food we ordered was overcooked and not cooked to how we had asked. For 46 per person, the first and third course seemed like they were just purchased from Costco and not even prepared in house. The food was sub-par and really didn't meet my expectations.

    Be careful about booking your Mother's Day lunch at Grillestone. The website gives you the option of reserving a table for the regular lunch menu or the Mother's Day brunch menu. My mother is 90 so I booked for the regular menu lunch as the Mother's Day brunch menu was a 3 course meal with essentially all breakfast items and it's quite expensive. But when we were seated by the hostess we were only given the Mother's Day brunch menus, then later informed that they were only serving from that special menu. We also had to sit for 20+ minutes before our server approached our table to take our drink order. The noise level at 1 pm was also extremely loud and difficult for seniors to hear people at the table. We almost got up and left while waiting for the server but knew if we did we wouldn't be able to go anywhere else on Mother's Day without a reservation so we stuck it out. However our experience changed as soon as the server came to our table. He apologized for the wait saying that he was busy with the outdoor diners, then gave us impeccable service the remainder of the meal. The drinks came out quick and so did the food (after we resigned to ordering on the special brunch menu.) All 3 courses were absolutely delicious with generous portions. So even though we had a rocky start the food and experience ended up being very pleasant. NOTE TO MANAGEMENT: Be sure to click the online links on your own website when you host special events so that you clearly understand the options and expectations of your customers. If the online reservation system is giving false information then be sure to have an IT person make the necessary corrections in a timely manner, then send an email to existing reservations that already received a confirmation for a seating with the regular menu.
