Ken Stewart’s Grille never disappoints. Dining here is an “experience” not just a meal. Food offering and service are the best. Husband and I enjoyed the Sashimi Appetizer Special and Tuna Tartar to start. Both were fresh and fabulous! For entrée, we had the Chilean Sea Bass special and the Cauliflower Steak. The Sea Bass was delicious. Husband said that Cauliflower Steak was equally good. For dessert, we share the Vegan Brownie. Yum! When you go to Ken Stewart’s, a hefty bill - $$$$ - is expected. Our meal with one bottle of wine was $220 before tip. (We paid cash so did not have a credit card fee like others have shared.) We were not surprised and were not discouraged from ordering freely. I only shared for people reading the review are not surprised by the cost to dine here.

The quality of the food was most superb- the appetizers: Baked Brie, Lobster Deviled Eggs and Oysters on the Half- a celebration. Then 6 oz Filet Mignon, medium rare/rare-perfectly done and both texture/taste were top notch. The setting was great, allowing for a 3.5 hr relaxed dinner experience, discreet conversation while enjoying the finest of foods- hard to beat, highly recommended.

I moved from Akron to the east coast decades ago, and though I visit family regularly and have heard them mention KSG, a Christmas Eve day lunch with family in their wine room was my first time. Service was gracious and efficient, the room very pleasant. Sauerkraut balls, a bit of an Akron tradition, were well executed, not greasy. The excellent fry job was also evident in the crispy frites. I had the lobster deviled eggs, a luxurious riff on another midwestern classic. But the sea bass over mushroom risotto is what really got my attention. The fish was beautiful and perfectly seared, but the risotto was the star. Perfectly cooked, just on the edge of al dente. The mushrooms infused the risotto with an umami through-line worthy of Fiorenze or Lucca. Bravo. .

We went for my birthday. The service was great - Drinks came out quickly, the server was attentive and friendly.

We had calamari for an app. Huge portion, but came with a lot of tentacles. We also had the stuffed pepper which was good. The potato crusted halibut was perfect.

For dessert we had the peanut butter bomb and it was amazing. I tried the vegan coconut sorbet also.

Good food. Great service.

Our seating was in a booth that was too small.

We are not big people.

Hopefully next time, we will be in a larger booth.

My husband and I dinned here for his birthday dinner. Great food, service, and ambiance! Great for special occasions. Enough noise that we didn't feel we needed to whisper, but quiet enough we didn't have to shout.

Lovely place with a nice ambience. Ordered Caesar salad which was made table side, however it had too much garlic and lemon, burned as you chewed. The crab cake was delicious.

Dinner was outstanding, restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holidays. PERFECT backdrop for our December birthday. The manager was on it keeping tabs of things and stepping in to help out. Pace of dinner was great, not rushed, not waiting and they were wonderful in accommodating my picky daughters shrimp request!
