This is the second and last time I will be going to this restaurant. The first time I ordered ribs and they were burned to the point they were not even edible. This time I ordered Halibut and it was cooked so long it was chewy and rubbery and had zero taste.

The Mother's Day Menu was excellent. I like the variety of choices that they offered us which in my opinion made it worth the price. Hopefully they have this next year.

Really good experience, the mushroom risotto (appetizer) was a little under cooked but overall everything was as expected. My family had a great time and would definitely return again.

Amazing food and experience. We sat in the bar section and save for a few Sunday afternoon drinkers lol it was a great time. I had the chicken Milanese and it was the best dish I’ve had at a restaurant in awhile. Lots of veggies and the chicken was super crispy and delicious. We ordered a pitcher of mango purée sangria. Not very strong, but flavor was great. We’re coming back for Mother’s Day!

The service is not good:front desk and the camera. They forget my husband's plate. Didn't serve the sangria. 1st glass of wine did not taste good, we request a cabernet sauvignon.

The restaurant was very understaffed. I felt bad for our waitress, she worked hard and was all over the restaurant picking up the slack. Because if this it took 40 minutes to order food. Then food came out weird, my son’s Mac and cheese came out right before we left. They need better management.

Fantastic dining experience! First time at the restaurant yet when we left we were leaving as Family. Food is obviously important and the experience allows the food to taste even better. We enjoyed having Denzel as our server extraordinaire. We noticed that for every table he served he adapted to suite the needs of each, a true professional. We started with the Tuna Takaki as an appetizer, we were impressed. My wife had the scallops while I had the short rib ravioli. To state that they were fantastic is not sufficient. For dessert we had a caramel cake which was incredible! Prior to leaving I asked to speak with the Manager, Mike, who topped off the experience with his friendliness. We suggest you try GrilleStone and you may even see us there, we're defiantly going back!!!

It was wonderful getting a high top on their patio. I was disappointed though, because the bar outside used to be gorgeous, and now it was used for storing unused chairs piled up and beverage refrigerators. It should have been cleaned and decorated with plants and bar lights to create a lovely atmosphere. Our waiter, Christian, was outstanding. He couldn’t have been more personable and attentive. Our food was very good and plentiful.

Tried to seat us by the door that kept opening to the outside. Raw food was good, a few shell pieces. Short rib ravioli wasn’t good. Doughy and hard. I don’t think this will be a repeat place for us. Over priced.

The good: Greeted by friendly host upon entering; They sat us quickly; Waiter was on the ball and quick; The meatball appetizer and the burger I had were great as was my wife’s sushi; I could taste the alcohol in my mixed drink, so that’s a huge plus!

The bad: Our table was too wobbly; My absolutely hated the boneless chipotle dry rub wings. Said they were like rocks; Got a little too loud for 6:30 pm.

Overall I enjoyed our experience. Wouldn’t mind trying the patio sometime.

Food was excellent, service not so much. Waiter (Raul) disappeared after taking our orders then skipped our salads and delivered our entrees. After steaks were delivered, disappeared again and it took us 10 more minutes to get the steak knives he did not deliver with the steaks. Restaurant was not crowded so he was not busy. And we still had to ask for the check twice.

Grillestone has the best Truffle Fries ever! Their BBQ wings are delicious as well. My wife and I recently had their Turkey Burgers with Truffle Fries and it great! We also finished off our meal with a delicious warm chocolate fudge brownie (it had not nuts in it).

The Brownie was on point! Additionally, my wife and I sat in the igloo outside, which was pretty cool but kind of small and tight. Otherwise we had a great time. Our server Raul was great and attentive. I highly recommend Grillestone.

Consistently a great place for a good meal with wonderful wait staff. It has such a variety, and they do it all well from calamari to waygu steak. It’s always a welcoming and comfortable place to go, and I always walk away with a smile. It’s a place to go to again and again and again.

I took a while for a server to approach our table, but once the server did arrive everything was great. Our starters arrived quickly as did our drinks. The food arrived promptly after we finished our starters and was very good. We already reserved a table again this week!

One of the worst dining experiences I ever had! We got seated right by the door, and it was 25 degrees outside. It was so cold we had to keep our coats on the entire time. I asked if we could be moved, and the waitress said no, even though there were a million empty tables. All the food was gross, and a couple things were not even the way they were described on the menu. When the waitress was putting my daughter's entree down, she spilled half of it onto the table. Then I couldn't wait to get my cappuccino since I was freezing, and it came out ice cold. And it was one of those restaurants that doesn't give bread or anything to eat before hand. I hate that! Do yourself a favor and do not go to this place.

Hello Rebekah. We're sorry you did not enjoy your Grillestone experience. To address your points. All tables were taken as we were on a wait when you arrived. Due to strict social distancing regulations, we are not permitted to seat all tables. Keeping guests more than 6 feet apart and providing a safe environment is our chief concern. We do try to accomodate all requests. Secondly, menu items are described in great detail. If something was not to your liking, we would have gladly replaced it.

We went with a party of 6. We waited 15 minutes before someone came to the table. We ordered our drinks and waited another ten minutes. Then we placed our order. We had three soups and some edamame. Then we had our meals. Our server was invisible! We couldn't get drink refills as well as anyone coming back to see if we needed anything else. Waiting on the check was another 15 minute ordeal! I understand the process with Covid and the protocols, but this is inexcusable. The lack of the manager not seeing this is poor management. We hadn't been back to the restaurant in over a year because of the past experience of service. We wanted to try it out to see if it had changed but it hadn't. The funny thing is we had 5 salads and a burger. If your staff can't handle this easy of an order. It's time to change the staff.
