They had a special chef from Napa come down. I wasn’t impressed tasted like a typical fine dining entree. There was no wow factor. Very disappointed.

Lobster in ‘specialty starter’ excellent-accompaniment mundane.

New York steak fatty and lacked expected flavor.

Strawberry crepes excellent.

Parkway Grill is always a good experience. Service is very attentive and accommodating.

My eight-year-old daughter wanted a small special family celebration dinner to be held here with her favorite items: lamb lollipops and bacon-wrapped figs.

Mom and dad got the half chicken.

Delicious and he accommodated our gluten free requests.

Complimentary Valet parking is efficient and convenient, just remember to tip!

This is possibly the most gorgeous restaurant in LA. The lighting is perfect: down lighting on every table top with soft ambient light coming from beautiful amber shades. Beautiful hardwood everywhere. Really no bad tables or bad views. Modest noise levels so you can actually have a conversation. Truly excellent food and service. Pricey but worth it.

A colleague recommended Parkway Grill as the location for a celebrator dinner and I'm very glad we made reservations.
The ambiance for me was amazing! The inside of the restaurant and bar are beautiful. I loved the pianist playing live music. Tim B was amazing and had impeccable timing.
Our drinks from the bar were very good (Whiskey Rebellion? WOW!)
The food we all had was delicious, cooked perfectly, portions were great, and didn't leave me for wanting more. Dessert was very good as well.
I am in love with Parkway Grill and will be back!

Erick was fantastic. Catered to our every need. We started with cocktails (bourbon based) and before the night was over Mark from the bar came to our table to explain his small batch bourbons! What an extra treat.

As we left we said “an evening like this can’t end this way.” So down to the bar for dessert and after dinner brandies.
Piano music was to our liking.

We feel we made new friends although we’ve been eating there practically since it opened.

The place was getting a 4-5 Star review until 2 people in our dinner party became ill due to the filet they both had! We know it was the filet, as everyone shared or had the same food/drinks with the exception of those that had the filet. Could have been the mushroom sauce that same with it. Hard to say. One thing is for sure, the illness came on quickly after the consumption of their entree’!

We always enjoy the Parkway Grill’s ambience. The combination of wood and brick walls adorned with Plein air pictures by the distinguished artist, Millard Sheets is not your usual restaurant decor.
Combine that with attractively plated dishes and a menu that offers a wide range of tempting food choices, and you have, in my opinion, all the ingredients for a pleasant dining experience.

We hadn't been to Parkway for more than a year. Seated at an excellent table against the back wall with a view of the room. Great space. Food options on the menu were good; specials were even better. Service was professional and attentive. I ordered the Caesar which was big wedges of romaine rather than chopped. Entre - pork chop - was prepared just right. Excellent evening.

I hosted a party of four, and for three of us the entree's were very good. My wife ordered her standard off menu pizza consisting of cheese, prosciutto, and arugula. The pizza dough was chewy, very little prosciutto and a lot of arugula and to top things off they charged $42 when their menu pizza's are in the $20 - $25 range.

I have been here many times. Probably first about 20 years ago. Had the catfish and oysters and my date had the salmon with grilled vegetables. She really liked the iced tea. But what made the day was the server. His name is Shane. I went to Parkway Grill on March 21, 2018 at 12:30 for lunch. Thank you Shane.

Filet was good but not up to the standards I’m use to at the Parkway Grill. Instead of one juicy steak, the steak was in multiple pieces. Seemed like the last filet available for the lunch crowd
