Had been here several times and wanted to share the incredible view with our guests from D.C. The view was, as always, spectacular! The cocktails and food (appetizer tacos and crabmeat somethings, branzino, scallops, and prime rib) deliciously and elegantly prepared. Some glitches in service (forgotten dishes, mainly, but also everything much slower than "enjoy dinner as the evening's entertainment" slow, plus prime rib overcooked) bring my rating down for this visit. Management did comp the late dishes, though, which is all I needed to plan a return visit for a special occasion. (Prices are way too high for just the food, but the view is worth it for a special time.)

My Boyfriend and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary here at this beautiful amazing restaurant. Food was amazing! Service was great although it took time to bring out the food but we understood that the chefs and hosts were trying to serve everyone at once but although it gives you a chance to talk and watch the beautiful sunset with your partner. Will come again!

Incredibly overpriced and we weren’t greeted at our table for over 20 mins after being seated. We ended up leaving at the lack of attention for such a expensive place - feeling completely ignored given we probably would have dropped about $600 there - too bad

At The Grand View we have a passion for hospitality and service. Yes it is too bad that we missed the mark and didn't arrive at your table in a timely manner, I think we can all agree that is not the level of service one should expect, nor is it in line with our philosophy. Luckily this type of thing is rare although it shouldn't happen at all. We are sorry we missed the opportunity to serve you and your guests and to offer you a wonderful experience.

The pasta was undercooked. The salads were delivered at the same time as the appetizer. For the price they charge, we expect excellent food and service. We didn’t get either.

The food was disgusting. The plate was hot around the edge and cold in the middle. After I explained the problem, the meal came back burned. We asked for the check twice, was given the dessert menu, declined and asked for the check a third time. 10mins later, the waiter brings out a birthday dessert and then waited another 10mins for the check - easily over 20mins waiting. Would strongly recommend to not eat here, so disappointing.

The view is amazing and staff is friendly however they forgot about us!! We were seated at 820, order taken right away but food did not come until almost 10:30. The manager did approach us to apologize but it truly ruined the experience and did not meet our expectations. Food was decent, nothing special. Overall don’t think we’ll be back!

Extremely expensive for what you get. The serviceware needs to reflect the food or vice versa. A huge plate makes a small steak seem even smaller, especially when it is served a la carte. The prime rib was good but there weren’t any sauces. I took most of it home just so I could make my own horseradish for it.

Thank you for your feedback, the Prime Rib is served with whipped horseradish and bone marrow broth. So sorry to hear that your sauce was omitted. We hope to have another opportunity to surpass your expectations in the future. Eat.Love. Celebrate

We went there for a birthday celebration mainly for the expected grand view over the mountain. Due to the summer time hours, the sun was still very bright when we got their at around 6:30 pm. Most of the time I was talking to my wife with my sunglasses on. And there was an annoying fly buzzing around all the time. Not a very romantic experience. The food was OK, not the best, and the service was excellent.

This is a very expensive restaurant. We went there knowing that. But there was a party there when we arrived with 2 very LOUD, undisciplined toddlers. This restaurant is nit appropriate fir small children. We were a party if 4 adults, but most tables were parties of 2, trying to enjoy a nice, romantic dinner. This group ruined the atmosphere. In addition, my husband ordered the lamb, medium at $72. 2 of his 3 chops were over cooked. I ordered the prime rib. It was cooked perfectly but lacked flavor. We did have the tiramisu which was delicious. For the 4 of us our dinner was $564. We had requested 2 separate checks, originally the waitress only brought one. She did take it back and fix it. With our tip our total was over $300. For this price I don’t expect loud toddlers to be disrupting my dinner and I expect excellent food. BTW, we have been her several times before (pre Covid) prices were not as high and the food was amazing.

Celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary at Grandview. My wife's experience was outstanding, with excellent meal. Mine was not great - I ordered the 14oz Ribeye steak and requested it be cooked "medium". It arrived on my plate "well" done and extremely dry. And, while I was offered a new order, the rhythm of the evening was thrown off significantly without so much as a sorry for the trouble. We had made reservations months in advance based on rave reviews. I was just let down by the experience.
