The quality of food has really gone down hill. For what you are paying, the food should be much much better. I like the location and enjoy the ambience, but I cannot get past the quality of food. The vegetables were old and mushy, the steak was weird and the coffee had black stuff floating in it. The desert was fine. It is supposed to be a higher end restaurant, but people walk in with flip flops and shorts. Think we will have to pass next time. Maybe the drive to Pasadena is worth it.

Food was HORRIBLE, filet minon was cooked wrong twice! Chicken was rubbery, my child didn’t even like the macaroni and cheese. The manager had no idea what he was doing and was making excuses for the new cook. I am incredibly disappointed not only by the food but by the management. I will never waste my money here again and I will ensure no one I know does either!

We spent $200 and the service and food were subpar. Our reservation was for 630pm, we were not seated until 7pm and the restaurant was very empty for a fathers day weekend. We sat at the bar and were not given a drink menu. I had a blueberry lemon drop which was just ok. Once we were finally seated, Linda half heartily asked us what we wanted to order. No insight on the menu was given. My drink spilled and she never brought me a new one. Her attitude was very poor. Our food arrived and I was given prime rib instead of the filet Mignon i ordered. No apologies, linda snatched it up and took it to the kitchen. Shortly after a medium rare filet mignon was placed in front of me when I ordered it to be cooked medium. Once I realized it, I sent it back to the kitchen, where they cooked the same piece of meat and sent it back to me. The steak had no flavor, I literally salted every bite that I did eat. The mashed potatoes had some brown sauce on it which was bland. We then mentioned to one of the waiters we were ready for our check if he saw linda, because she was MIA. A few minutes later, linda plops the check on the table and walks away. Did not ask if we wanted desert, how was everything, nothing. We then asked for the manager, who came over and didnt seem to care but handed us his card . The worst experience I have had at a restaurant in a long time. I was also here for an event a few weeks ago and wasnt impressed but thought I would give it a second chance.

The NY Grill has been a favorite for years, but it had been a while since we have eaten there.
The service was outstanding as was the piano player and the wine list is impressive. These have always been high points when dining there. However, the food has gone down hill. Not just a little, but a lot. When we arrived on a weekend night, with friends who were celebrating a birthday, we were surprised to see that is was virtually empty. Once we had dinner, we knew why it was empty. It was so mediocre that my wife and I were embarrassed to have taken our friends there.
I'm sure they can rest on their past excellent history for a awhile, but we certainly hope that they get it fixed before they, like so many other favorites, succumb to overpriced mediocrity and ultimately locked doors.

Was here quite a while back and liked it, so even though it’s a bit of a drive for us, decided to go again.
The ambiance is still very nice. The decor, piano and so forth is outstanding. The food was a different story. The side dishes were fine, the sautéed mushrooms were pretty good. The problem started with the steak. Standard new york steak that was dry, tough and a bit overcooked. The veggies were the standard flavorless trio. For dessert, my wife ordered the lava cake to share. Let’s just say that it wasn’t even worthy of using the flatware.

To sum up- decent sides, edible, but not outstanding appetizer; not so great steak; very weak dessert. Certainly not worth the $300+ that was spent for 4 people.

New York Grill is just a classy place with the ambiance of a piano playing in the background, just like in the movies but real life.

The Date was great and service was always so attentive. The Food has always been excellent in preparation and delivery.

If you’re looking for a local place that’s classy with a cozy atmosphere, you can’t go wrong with New York Grill in Ontario.

Highly Recommend.

My family took me here for Mother’s Day. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while and I was very excited about it. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the only issue we had was my sons steak had to be redone three times. He ordered a fillet medium and it kept coming out ultra rare. They were very accommodating and provided us with a discount. I would definitely go back

I was a little disappointed. # of our 9 guests ordered the salmon, and 2 of them thought it was over-cooked. The prime rib wasn't bad, but definitely was not anywhere near the best I've had. That was the general feel of everyone in our group. Not at all what we were hoping for to celebrate a special occasion

It was the worst experience of my life. The servers had their arms in our plates, the waitress was arguing with me how lamb shank is cooked. She asked me how I wanted it cooked , rare? I explained it’s braised and should be fork tender. She disagreed , so I asked her to check with the cook. What do ya know I was right. Myhusbands steak had no seasoning and the mashed potatoes tasted like instant !!

We went for Mother’s Day brunch and also to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation. The manager and our server were EXCELLENT! The food was delicious and the pianist was lovely! We had a party of 9, one with food allergies and also some picky moms...all handled with care by our server! The manager shared with us that he was new, we couldn’t believe it!! We left a generous tip for an excellent experience to celebrate our many blessings! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Horrible service, took 20 minutes just to receive our drinks, and another 45 min just to receive our appetizer which also came with our main dish. The only thing really good was the steak tidbits. Ribeye was tasteless and totally not worth $52. Will not recommended this restaurant to friends or anyone at that matter. Very disappointed.

A couple of friends and I came for dinner, about 6pm on a Tuesday evening. There were only a few people at first, then the place filled up quickly. Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. The spicy pork chops were very tasty. They are good sized and they give you two, so I took one home for next day's lunch. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our drinks and water were quickly refilled. Nice dessert tray, we shared a slice of Raspberry Cheesecake. Very good!

This is usually one of our favorite date-night restaurants. Unfortunately, this was probably our last visit. Our waitress was very nice but extremely over-worked. We visited on St. Patrick's Day and it was very busy. She must have had a minimum of 8 tables. I know that the table next to us left shortly after we arrived, very upset because they were discussing their experience with the manager/owner. That should of been our first clue. I ordered iced tea which literally looked like water with a tad of tea. When I questioned the server, she said they had run out of tea and tried to make it with tea bags but it looked and tasted like one tea bag to 5 gallons of water. My lobster bisque had what I thought was part of the lobster shell but was actually a piece of plastic that looked like it came off of the top of a container. I normally love the lobster bisque but this time, other than the plastic there was no lobster in it. My steak came out medium rare instead of medium well. They took it back and it took almost 20 minutes to get it back. I finally asked my server why it was taking so long, she said it was because they were making me a fresh steak. Well, they brought me my same steak back, with the cut through the middle but now it was burnt to a crisp. At almost $100 a person, I expect a server who is able to be attentive, soup without plastic additives, and steak that is properly cooked. They did offer a slice of cheesecake on them as an apology for the steak which we declined. Because of our experience, we most likely won't be back.

The steaks were over cooked. We asked for medium rare and they came medium well. We were asked about the temperature before we tried them and the manager fled before we tried them and came back when we felt it was too late to send them back. The lobster bisque was extremely salty.

We went for Valentines Day and of course you know that would be the busiest day for a spot like this. So if your reservation was for 6:30, you’re being seated around 7:30. There were some angry people but the staff did a great job keeping their cool and did their best to be accommodating to the situation.

Now once we sat down, the service was excellent and the mac n’ cheese/lobster, GREAT !! I know their known for their steaks but I highly suggest trying the lamb.

Great spot and will be returning
