Dry Creek Grill Ratings and Reviews
Worst dinner there , service was horrendous. Not sure I will darken their door again. Andrea was our server and she was awful. Bad attitude, we even had to unscrew our own wine and pour the bottle ourselves. Ridiculous when you consider the mark up. Her lack of urgency made our dinner very hectic. Worst service, would expect this at Chili’s but not here.
Everything was delicious until the entrees. The risotto was undercooked, lobster very dry and my filet mignon (ordered med well) was rare w/ a bloody vein. We’ve been coming here for the past years and we’re very sad to see this decline. Not worth the price.
Definitely lives up to one of those you get what you pay for in a good way. If you can look past the potential sticker shock, the quality of the food is great, good selection of different things, and an attentive staff.
Where you sit can significantly affect the noise level you're exposed to if that's your thing. Parts of the restaurant has TVs playing but you can try to request something further away if desired.
We were celebrating our 35th Wedding anniversary. We started at the bar for a cocktail. Sal, the mixoligist, made a special Manhattan called a Brooklyn. A liquor called Ramazzotti was mixed with Bourbon and Rye. Very tasty.
At dinner we were comped with a glass of Champagne for our anniversary. Nice touch. We had the bone in rib eye and the braised lamb shank. Both were spectacular. The bone marrow appetizer was just so so. Over salted. Cream Brulee for dessert. We shared a bottle on Camus Special Selection. We could not have been happier, and yes, we took LYFT home. Getting killed on the way home would have spoiled the evening. Cheers!
We spent 150.00 on a lamb shank that was flavorless and prime rib that had flavorless potatoes
A glass of wine a beer and calamari salad.
I could have eaten a lobster dinner elsewhere.
The only thing we liked was the calamari salad.
Will not recommend or return .
I’ve been asked about our experience and we did not recommend. Would rather go to Morton’s. Not upscale at all.
This is a neighborhood grill that has several very large seating areas; so groups would be comfortable here and they do have booths as well for 2-4 people. Service was excellent, food was good, but not what I would consider great. Hamburgers looked delish but I had salmon which was good but too much butter and sauce on it. Caesar was mediocre.
I had a fantastic birthday dinner here a few days ago. We came with our two kids, knowing it wasn't really a "kid" restaurant but they were well-behaved and service was very nice to suggest food ideas for them. The timing of the food was nicely done - not too slow or too fast.
I believe this was our third visit but it had been a year since our last dinner here. We've had good meals every time and service is helpful and unobtrusive.
We enjoyed all of our dishes: sliders, BBQ brisket, Brussels sprouts, crab cakes, cocktails and dessert.
The location isn't ideal - next to a gym and parking is sparse but the interior is very attractively done. It is loud, so avoid prime time if you want to have a real conversation. We plan to return, sooner than later.
Had a great dinner with my daughter. She “made a wish” at Willow Glen High School to take me out for dinner because my sister had recently died of cancer. She was granted the wish and given a $50 gift certificate. I was very touched by the gesture and had a wonderful time with my daughter. The food and service was outstanding.
We really do live the dry creek grill, and we enjoy going there - it is just a bit pricey. The food is good and unique, but $25 for a burger and friends all in with Price, Tax and Tip is a little high. I am fine paying $51 for an aged piece of meet, but I would encourage dry creek to have something on the menu that a teenager can enjoy - without breaking the bank.
Food and service was very good, however it was so noisy we could hardly hear each other. Huge volume seating so not surprising it would be so loud... but it was really really loud. Not an intimate dinner experience, so go in expecting that, but still a good experience overall.
