Main courses a disappointment. Salmon was good quality, but a bit over cooked. Sauce was analogous to chicken broth; not an ounce of seasoning. “Bland” is being charitable. Chicken, sausage and peppers were mediocre. Dry chicken, average quality sausage. Again, bland sauce raised its mediocre head. Basically, all the positives of La Griglia are offset by the bland, spice-less sauces, which are common in the Midwest and in East Coast diners, but rarely found in East Coast Italian restaurants where the average entree is $35. Will pass going forward. Brick Oven and Ferraro’s in Westfield may not have the atmosphere or professional level of service, but the food is better, and that’s where I would recommend going if food is most important.

We were upstairs in the smaller dining room which was nice, as it is quieter. My pasta started and soft shells were excellent, as was my wife's crab cake and short ribs. I always feel like I could order almost anything on the menu here. Nice little touches like terrific bread, tasty olives, and a choice of butter or olive oil. Desserts could use a little sprucing up. Another nice feature is excellent wines by the glass.

Our server Jaime was incredibly knowledgeable and was so engaging. The food was delicious and not your typical meals you would get anywhere. It was cooked perfectly, generous portions and the flavor was unreal. We really enjoyed ourselves. Can't wait to go back.

My husband & I shared the octopus appetizer. Perfect portion to share with the most delectable sauce. Nice choice of specials. My husband had the cod which was amazing. I had the swordfish which was cooked to perfection and delicious too. Have to say , La Grigla is one of my favorite restaurants. Btw, the service was outstanding. Our waitress was very attentive and never allowed our wine glasses to get low.

We received a friendly greeting upon our arrival. Our server was very cordial and explained our meal preparations perfectly. You knew she was very experienced. We ordered a steak, lamb chops, pasta and red snapper. Portions were very generous and foods were all cooked perfectly. We shared a couple of bottles of pinot griggio which was reasonably priced. They have an extensive wine list from inexpensive to quite expensive.

I had the Red Snapper over sauté spinach which was excellent!! The portion was large enough to take home for another meal. This is now on my list for many return visits.

Our appetizers were also outstanding. The crisp endive salad with blue cheese and candied walnuts and the burrata with heirloom tomatoes really knocked it out of the park. Our server was attentive and the wait staff cleared and crumbed the table, never leaving us in front of dishes, once we finished a course. The wine list offers a nice selection for every palate. Thank you Chris, Jessica and staff for making our evening a memorable one.
