    Excellent customer service, the wait after the order was perfect. Our server gave us history of the restaurant. He explained some of the choices since it was our first time in the restaurant. My only complaint was no choice or rice🤔

    Service was excellent. The staff was very attentive and checked back frequently during the meal. Of course, the view was outstanding. The food was unbelievable, presentation excellent, and the portions were very ample. Menu prices might appear to be on the high side, but in the end the dining experience is totally worth it. However there is one negative relating to our experience. The parking is horrendous. The parking lot is very small and can not accommodate many cars and consequently you forced to park on the road. Due to the restaurant location, it would be difficult to use Uber. I would suggest that you arrive early, just when it opens. In conclusion we have been coming to this restaurant since the early seventies and each time has been a very memorable experience.

    Had a great dinner experience at Grandview. Our server (Jim) was fantastic and we really enjoyed the views and food. Food portions were big - we had to take a lot of food home... We felt we got good value for our money.

    Grandview was the perfect place to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. We ate outside (they have heaters at every table) and everything was wonderful. While it is on the expensive side, each plate we had was well worth the money paid. Overall, it was a wonderful evening. Great view and delicious food, not to mention excellent service. I'd highly recommend it for a celebration dinner.

    All about the location at this restaurant. The food is definitely not worth the price got a burnt charbroiled fillet and undercooked vegetables and potatoes and cold mashed potatoes. pretty disappointing for a high end expectation that comes along with the price good for a one time experience, mainly for the view in the summer I’d recommend

    We were very excited to eat at the Grand View and have a memorable experience. When we arrived, the host escorted us to a downstairs OUTDOOOR patio. It was a very cold night and 55 degrees when we arrived at 5:15pm. I asked to be reseated to an inside table and was told there was no more indoor seats available. The waiter was great. However, it took almost 90 mins to get our main course. Ridiculous! The restaurant needs to set up the indoor / outdoor option when booking. We would not have come if there was no indoor option available. Definitely ruined the night freezing outside.

    I ordered the filet mignon medium but I got it well done. I was gonna return it but It took a while to get to me and I didn't want to wait it any longer to eat... the panzanella is a 60% crouton salad... the spaghetti nera was great though...

    It was our first time there. We ordered Truffle Arancini, Grilled Shrimp and Poke Mini Tacos for appetizer. It was awesome. The Australian Lamb Chops is cooked with perfection as I asked for Medium rare, and Pollo Bella Vista . Our server, Siscin, was the best. She recommended the dishes and checked in with us from time to time. It was a nice touch as we ordered a Cheese cake and they made a Happy Birthday written on that at the end. FORGET to mention the gorgeous view from a restaurant.Thanks for a great Hospitality 👍 But we had a great dinner for celebration. We’ll come back for another special occasion!

    Kobe New York strip was not as good as I had expected--a bit tough even though it was medium-rare. May be simply the cut of meat. Would have preferred a ribeye cut.

    I took my husband for a special birthday date night. I noticed there were many tables open towards the outer end of patio which had a nicer view. It was 7pm. I had asked if it would be possible if we can sit closer to end to have better view and the server never got back to us. I had to ask again then he said they were reserved. We had left at 9 pm and those tables were still open . The waiter was being lazy and did not want to move us. Disappointing!

    One of the dishes came out unfinished, they took it back. Food was just average overall. Then there’s was an overwhelming cleaner smell as they cleaned somewhere in the lower deck. They did offer us free dessert as a gesture, which was nice, but the sorbet we got was terrible, inedible. View is great, but value is just not there.

    We decided to celebrate our special occasion here tonight. The service was excellent. However, our meals were quite salty and overdressed. For example, the star ingredient should stand out, not drown or mask in sauces and condiments. The wine and cocktails were excellent. We especially want to compliment Marco, our waiter, and Chris, our table busser. Chris has the best hospitality and service. Hopefully, the dishes prepared will be less salty and stay pure with the main ingredients to let them shine. Overall, the spectacular view caps off a beautiful celebration.

    The Grandview is a great place to go for special occasions. It’s pricey, but the food is excellent as well as the service. Gorgeous view so go while it’s still light out and watch the sunset. Prime rib is delicious; mushroom ravioli is fantastic. We also had the twice baked potato side dish that was phenomenal. Carpaccio appetizer is worth the price and a fairly generous serving. We had a kale and beet salad also that was enough for four people and it was quite delicious. Cheesecake for dessert was creamy and light, although serving is fairly small for the price. We also tried the tiramisu for dessert. We were not overly impressed and very small portion for the price. Overall I would recommend the Grandview.
