It was really nice! The ambiance was amazing and the food was great! Only thing I disliked was how long they took to serve the food. We actually never received one of our entrees because it took so long. Besides that it was pretty nice.

Waiter was friendly however disappeared throughout the dinner did not offer to refill drinks, checked in to make sure everything came out right, or cleared done appetizers for entrées. Appetizer-mussels were not cleaned properly. Ordered med rare for surf and turf got charred well done steak instead. Price is comparable to restaurants like Capital Grille however germatown garden grill's food and service were not up to par.

Ordered a $30 salmon dinner that arrived at the table 10 minutes from ordering it with cold asparagus and rice. It was ultimately rectified with a discount taken off, but it was a hassle trying to do that. The manager was very nice and reassured if we came back we would have a better experience. Ehh would not recommend if you’re looking for a “perfect” night out. Just go to try first and draw your own conclusions!

The service was poor from the beginning. I booked outside pool side. Asked for an igloo. All of them were not occupied at all my entire stay. It started to rain while I was eating. They wouldn’t even given a dry place to sit. I was standing in the door way for 15 min and had 40 min left of my reservation when it started to rain in the first place. The food wasn’t seasoned. I was celebrating my daughters achievements, 1st year of college completed. Over priced food for the taste. Terrible service. Nice atmosphere we shouldn’t have to pay gratuity up front. Allows ppl to treat u bad and still get paid. Party of four no one was satisfied

It would be very helpful and informative if your wait staff inform the customer that the tip is already built into the final final, after my waitress gave me the check she said do you want any chance back. I said no and after I requested my final bill I gave a fifty dollar tip. I was planning on tipping only once but instead I gave two tips which was extremely upsetting and disappointing.

The only reason why I didn’t give this place 5 stars is because my friends and I sat in the plastic igloo when it was 80 degrees outside... we were COOKING in the plastic. I kid you not, my friends eggs cooked more while she waited for us to receive our food. I’m sure the igloos were a great idea in the winter and early spring but now they can do without them. The bottomless mimosas are a great deal. Perfect place for an afternoon out with the girls.

Party of four- two of us decided to partake in bottomless mimosas- bill comes out with all 4 patrons included. We were told by our waiter "that's just the way they do things here, if one person at the table orders bottomless then everyone is charged 29 pp. HUH??? Do you not think this should have been disclosed. Food was okay- Ambience was cool-- will i return?- prob not.

They close at 10pm but allow reservations at 930 , they do not mention that they close at 10pm.. had to order by 945 and it just seemed rushed. Food seemed reheated and the tables where all rusted like. The server was nice but again everything was rushed.

it was terrible. our reservations were for five in the outdoor seating area. when we got there they had us inside with a table made for 4. when we told them that we had a reservation for five outside they said. “well we cant do that so you have to sit inside, just pull up another chair from a different table.” we never could figure out who was working there because all of the servers had on regular clothing including adidas shirts and snipes shirts. our service was trash, we had to wait 30 minutes before our waitress even came over to greet us. we only saw her two times during our whole dining experience. i believe that the service is so terrible because they automatically add on a 20% tip onto the bill. so the waitresses suck because they are getting paid regardless.

The service was very poor, our server was barely attentive and messed up everyone’s order. The food was over priced for some basic bar food. The table and the bubbles were dirty. Half of the servers didn’t even wear a mask or wore them half way at best. I guess because there is an automatic 20% gratuity taken out, the serves feel as though they don’t have to put their best foot forward. But as a server myself I was severely disappointed in the place overall. If your looking to have a special night out I would not recommend this place to anyone ever.

I enjoyed my time at the GGG. My food and drinks were great. Stanley our waiter was excellent for it being his first day. Very attentive, helpful and paid attention to detail. The hostesses were very welcoming and also accommodating after I had to change my reservation. In all, you will have a great time here.

The calamari & mussels were very yummy. I ordered the crab cake meal it was delicious. The servers were very polite and helpful. The ambience was wonderful, I can’t wait to eat outside by the pool.

I don’t usually leave reviews but I was so disappointed that I want to share my experience. I came with a group of friends for my birthday and the total order and bill was completely wrong. We ordered 35 wings for the table and were charged for 45. I also ordered a complimentary bottle of champagne for my birthday since I hold a season pass for Vesper and was charged $50 extra for this. I’ve tried to contact them multiple times and they have not answered my messages or calls. It seems they do not want to fix this issue. They are careless about the service here.
