The restaurant was not seemingly busy (only patio seating was open), but it took over an hour to receive our food. Other guests seated after us (and in larger parties) received their food before us, making us wonder if our order was lost. We asked for bread and didn’t realize we would be charged $6 for two pieces until the bill arrived. Same with charges for refills on soda. Disappointing service and timeliness — our server never mentioned there were delays. Business model doesn’t align with neighborhood restaurants we normally frequent, and unlikely to give this one a 3rd try.

The patio is the best thing about Glover Park Grill. The good is uninspiring and flavorless. We had 5pm reservations, but arrived early because we received an email stating that there would be a Happy Hour and many specials for the Kentucky Derby. The only special was a Mint Julep. We ordered a beer and sparkling Rose which were both warm.
We had to flag a server down after 5pm to get a menu.
We’ve tried Glover Park Grill twice and have come away disappointed both times.

The restaurant is nicely laid out, with good space between the tables, so relatively quiet, although you still hear the traffic right next to the restaurant on Wisconsin.
As for the food, the crab cake was quite good, however, the trout was over-cooked and dry.
The service was good.

The outside setting was a good one for this covid conservative. The tables were well spaced to be without masks and talking with my spouse and a friend. As far as the food goes, anyone of one of my home cook friends could do better. I had the cavatelli and the buffalo wings app to get some protein. It was just nothing special at all for a night out in the neighborhood.

Servers must travel so far from outdoor patio to the bar and kitchen that the pace over service is poor.
GPG's steak tartare would be better named "chopped up raw meat." There was no mustard, worcestshire sauce, egg, or any of the ingregients found in the classic dish.

We had seen the great food critic review and thought we would try the new restaurant. Our experience was excellent. The spicy deviled eggs were creamy with just the right amount of spice. My Goddess salad was a nice twist by adding pistachios to wild greens and goat cheese.

The atmosphere was beautiful with its wine displays, music, and appropriately distanced tables.

I recommend it to my friends and neighbors.

Came here on a Friday last week. The staff was friendly and accommodating (despite several very entitled guests complaining in a way that was pretty disrespectful to the staff). We sat near the bar and in fact the bartender - Walton, great guy - took our orders at our table. He made a delicious gin martini (we may have had one or two too many) using some type of gin I'd never tried before.

The food was good but not great. We ordered the Beef Tenderloin and Rainbow Trout. The beef tenderloin was very good but the fish was way too salted.

All in all I would come back because of the drinks and bartender, but the food was somewhat forgettable.

I SO wanted this to be a great dinner as it is a wonderful neighborhood location and I am usually very fond of the chef's menu. Unfortunately the quality of the food was very mixed. My chicken Parm was cold with a glob of "melted" cheese on top and way too much breading. The spring pasta dish however was delicious. Warm, creamy and flavorful. Pasta was cooked perfectly. The crabcake was good but the beans served with the dish stole the show. Very flavorful. Overall the food was good, but at that price point I would have expected better. Our biggest disappointment was the service. While our server was very friendly, he did not seem to really know what he was doing. He "took our order" twice because he didn't remember taking it the first time, offered to bring bread but never did. Additionally it took 1 hr and 20 min for us to receive our main course. That is WAY too long, especially as we were told several times that our food was "almost out". I will likely give it another try as it has a nice outdoor venue, but I hope they can work out the kinks with the food quality and the timing of the food service.

This was the place Tom Sietsma raves about? Waited fifteen min to be given water and get a bar order. Bartender doubling as a waitress was stretched too thin. Food concepts were good but dishes were not hot especially the fries. Asked for extra napkins. Had them taken away before we could grab them. Had to ask three times for them. Cold wine had no bucket. Forgot a cappuccino order. Went to the bar to ask for the check so we could finally leave. All this for over two hundred. Won’t be back

The hostess and wait staff were great--very accommodating!

Sadly the food was a BIG disappointment. Sietsema gave the restaurant a rave review March 28 and we have been trying to support neighborhood restaurants. The potato leek soup was tepid (not warm) thick non-descript taste with a couple of small bits of apple and one tiny bit of smoked trout. The Crab Cake was NOT MARYLAND CRAB AND DEFINITELY NOT "JUMBO LUMP" just shredded nicely shaped patty -- we were not sure whether crab meat was included in the cake. -- We won't be returning. Sietsema should pack it in

Read the Post review but had already decided to try it. The potatoe soup and Caesar salad were outstanding. Shrimp and grits were highly recommended by the Post and server and were good but a bit on the bland side. Same with the fried chicken. The outside terrace was covered and inviting and has heat lamps but was not needed last night. We will go back.

There was one waitress making drinks and taking orders for the whole restaurant. She was nothing short of amazing! Especially considering that she was incredibly sweet and pleasant whenever we got the chance to chat with her. All in all we had a great evening...the ambiance was set right with a fantastic playlist of jazz and soul classics, which got us in a wonderful, relaxed mood.

We had mixed greens with goat cheese salad, which they graciously split in two plates for us — the mandarin pieces were a bit dry, but other than that the salad was lovely (with added crunch and flavor provided by toasted walnuts and a tangy balsamic glaze dressing). The deviled eggs were phenomenal (though the bacon on top could’ve been a bit crunchier).

We stuck to pizza and a burger because we’d read good reviews about both and didn’t want to take a chance on overpaying for “better” entrees, but be disappointed (based on what other reviews had said) — and they didn’t disappoint! We got pepperoni on the pizza and the burger was a perfect medium rare — not to mention the fries were the best I’ve had since McDonald’s fries in the 80’s! (When they were still “natural”.) Seriously amazing fries — how did they do that!? Thin, light in color, and incredibly crispy — with plenty of salt! (Almost a tad bit too much, though, and I love salt...) The burger had a “special sauce” on it that was fantastic. More cornichons would be welcome (we got one on a tooth pick) but there were pickles in the burger so that sort of made up for it...

We had two cocktails — both made with gin. The Rickey is served in a tall glass (on the rocks) and was a tad bit too sweet for me, though nicely flavored. The other was served up and was lightly “flavored” by yuzu and ginger. We also had a bottle of Montepulciano, which was okay (but I’ll take an old world red over a California Cab any day). It paired great with our pizza!

Desserts were a sundae and bread pudding, which were also delicious. We will be back!

We're so happy to have another good restaurant in our Glover Park Neighborhood. The Grill's currently semi-enclosed outside space has nicely space tables, nice table settings (love that hefty flatware!), and lots of overhead heaters for cool temps. We had server turn ours off altogether as it was already pretty warm outside on Saturday eve. Our server was pleasant and efficient. We asked to split one of the salads and it was presented nicely split already by the kitchen. Husband had short ribs, which were quite substantial and excellent, I had double pork chop with brussel sprouts and sweet potato smear. Should have asked for steak knife for porkchop. Chop was very large and very dense. Think it was a little overcooked, because it wasn't at all juicy. Brussel sprouts were excellent. Menu items were more expensive than I had imagined - with almost all entrees over $30 - and steak frites at $47. We'll definitely go back - but may for burgers - or to try their pizza next time....

Wanted to impress the in-laws, I’ve heard good things about this place so off of a whim I took them here for an early dinner. They did not disappoint. Off of a first impression very welcoming. Knowledgeable staff, great recommendations. Food is to die for. Comforting, no frills. Dominque was very warm she saw to it that we had an enjoyable stay. Overall great experience.

We were very excited to try Glover Park Grill. Our server was fantastic . He really went out of his way to make us comfortable. Unfortunately we were disappointed with our meat dishes. The beef tartare would have been perfect with some acid and a little salt - the fresh dill was delicious but made the dish a little one note. We ordered the pork chop, which was pretty flavorless and not worth the price. Our other app, the deviled eggs, were fantastic, as were the brussel sprouts served with the pork chops. The cavatelli and crab was outstanding too. I really wanted to give it more stars, and if we go back and find the meat to be more flavorful, I will.
