La Griglia Ratings and Reviews
Great atmosphere, awesome wine selection, diverse menu and top notch service. We dine here often because when you have business meetings, seamless service is essential. No surprises and no disappointments. Thank you to the staff for making our meeting a success.
My wife and I went to La Griglia to celebrate her birthday. The experience could not have been better. We were seated as soon as we arrived. From that point on the service was excellent, our server was quite attentive without being overly so. The food was excellent as always. During the course of the evening, the staff made a point of acknowledging the special occasion. We were also treated to desert for the birthday. All in all, a wonderful evening out and a superb meal.
I was in New Jersey this past weekend. I finally had the opportunity to dine at La Griglia. From the moment we arrived we were met with the valet. We entered and were asked if we wanted to check our coats, which was funny to me coming form South Florida.
We went to the bar, and were greeted by two happy well prepared bar tenders. I ordered a vodka gimlet, and my sister a very dirty martini. My gimlet was prepared with fresh lime juice and a splashed of roses limes juice. This happens to be one of the best gimlets I have every had. The martini was exactly made as asked.
We went to the dining rooms where our servers introduced themselves to us. They were always available to us but not in our faces. I must say, the bread service was worth every single calorie.
We started with a purple and golden beet salad, then ordered the swordfish while my sister had with risotto. Veal Osso Buco was fall off the bone tender, and her risotto was amazing. I thought it was great, and I usually dislike risotto.
All I would like to say, is thank you Steven for making our evening so delightful, and when I am in New Jersey again, I will definitely have dinner in Kenilworth again.
Restaurant called to confirm reservations and I mentioned that I did NOT want to sit upstairs. Had two drinks at the bar and then the hostess sat us upstairs! I’m not one to complain but it did not look like there was any reason we could not have sat downstairs.
Walter the waiter introduced himself, never asked us if we wanted a drink, never came back to our table until I called him over after 20 mins. He did the same again after dinner. Not very pleasant to us. The bus service interrupted my conversation constantly to fill my water. Previous occasions, very pleasant.
At LG no matter what you order on the menu you will not be disappointed. My favorite is the Dover Sole and the bone in filet. LG is know for their signature crab cakes, which are rich and broiled to perfection. They are a must try item. The endive salad is splendid, if you like Gorgonzola, a creamy Dijon dressing and candied walnuts. Sometimes they offer unusual options like marinated Blowfish tails. We were adventurous and tried them, but my preference is still chilled oysters. La Griglia has a vast wine selection, offering options by the bottle, quortina and glass.
Best meal and value in years. $24 Prix Fixe menu is extensive. Short Ribs, Red Snapper, Salmon, Swordfish Caesar were a few of the choices. Cabernet bottle was one of the special wines at $30 and was terrific. Service was impeccable. Valet parking provided. They have it down and provide a great business lunch.
The service was superior. The food was quite good.
Though we booked through Open Table, the restaurant could not find our reservation, though they were quick to seat us anyway. Later that evening Open Table sent me an email asking why we had not shown up. Clearly a small glitch.
Great wine list with many Napa and Italian wines. Food and service spot on with wait staff ever present to keep water and wine glasses replenished. We always enjoy the Dover Sole and Mediterranean Branzino, but do not pass up the bone in filet with potato galette. LG is known for their broiled crab cakes( appetizer) which you must try at least once. Always a great meal with thoughtful service!
