I made the reservation on the OpenTable app. Arrived a few minutes early and was seated immediately. It was our first time, and we were all pleasantly surprised with overall atmosphere and dining experience. The wedge salad was a refreshing light tasty starter. Our entrees were all different and everyone was content. Our waiter Chris was great too! Already recommended to colleague and will definitely be back.

Heard good things about Grillstone, and so we figured we check it out.
I had the Chicken Cordon Bleu, which was FABULOUS! My date had the Paella, also very good.
The service was okay..
We had NO wait FOR OUR RESERVATION, which was a BIG PLUS!!
However, sorry for the however, the service was a bit slow, and the ATMOSPHERE was loud..
The acoustics in the room , did not help the open area we sat it , and the loud guy talking to his woman AT THE NEXT TABLE..
I would go there again , since the food was good, and also there was a less expensive casual menu to try as well. Id determine how I would tolerate the noise vs the great food, the next time around..

Waited a while to be greeted even though it did not seem busy. Waiter was friendly and professional but seemed to be too busy with other tables while there were several others who were standing around. Food was mediocre at best. All 3 dishes (burger, filet and tuna) were overcooked and dry.

Went for the half price flatbreads and bottles of wine. The wine value was excellent and I will return for this special. The flatbread was good but there are other things on the menu that are better! Service was excellent - Gabby!!!!
They had a man with a keyboard playing music which was very enjoyable. I was worried at first but the volume level was good! Great place!

We always enjoy our time at Grillestone, and the recently updated menu has made it even better! There is something for everyone on the menu, and the food is excellent! It is a great choice for a nice meal or celebration, yet it is casual and family friendly.

Our server was great and the food was delicious. The manager stopped by to ask how everything was - which I appreciate. They had a live “lounge singer” in the bar area that was ok

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this spot is no “chain” operation. Instead we found a VARIED menu to suit both sushi-lovers and carnivores - an impressive bar list and nice desserts too. Our waiter and waitress-in-training really stood out too. We’ll be back!

Went out for Valentine’s Day, i have only been here one other time and everything was excellent service, food, music. Unfortunately the music stopped somewhere between 9:30 and 10pm and the restaurant was filled with everyone’s chatter not really pleasant to hear. Wish the live music or a radio would have been going for duration of my meal...

It was an average experience. Can't say there was much ambiance. The food was fine. Portions were fine. Service was fine. Really "down the middle" experience. I have had that level of service and attention at a local diner. For a the price, I would go elsewhere.

We were celebrating a birthday with three adults and one five-year-old child. Our server was extremely nice and very nice to the child. However he was either new or not very well-versed in restaurant fare and service. We ordered Caesar salads and filet mignon for all three of us. We also ordered in advance the child’s meal which came very quickly and was very good. However, for the three of us, no bread was put on the table or offered, the salads were never brought to us until we asked for them, because the server thought they should come with the entrée and we explained to him that that is never the case. So he brought the salads out and upon putting them down on the table a person from the kitchen brought the three entrées out. We refused them and said we were sending them back because we just got our salads which were quite large and needed to eat them first. The young man started to take them back but then came back and said he had to deliver them and we refused again. The manager came over and apologized and said he would have three new steaks fired for us and offered us either a round of wine or dessert on the house. We chose the desserts, which were excellent. We
totally enjoyed our steaks and baked potatoes. They were cooked perfectly and served very nicely. The only issue was our server, who was really a very nice young guy. I’m sure the manager had a discussion with him, and we were sorry for that, but we tipped him extra because he was a good sport about the whole thing. We will definitely go back there again and have been there before eating outside on the patio.

We all had surf and turf specials. It was a great value and all of the food was very good especially the filets that were all cooked perfectly. Good wine, very nice atmosphere. Service could have been better, but overall a very good experience.

Service is slow. . .restaurant was busy. More servers would probably help. Very loud - sound system is awful! There were singers who sounded even worse, since the sound system was so poor! Bar was crowded and loud. . .sitting at a table in the restaurant was not much quieter. Food was ok. . .wings needed more seasoning, but burger was great & fries were hot. Another table was served a bread basket - but we were not offered one. Not sure I'll be back at dinner, but may be willing to try some of the posted specials for lunch. Music was was too loud!
