Loved brunch - Had the egg white omelet and Turkey sausage with a Bloody Mary and it all hit the spot

Came here with my fiancé for our anniversary. I got the miso black god, he got the steak, everything was really good, the presentation was. Nice environment. Definitely coming back another night.

Great brunch. We had the challah french toast and eggs benedict. Both were great. The restaurant is nut free which is great as my son is allergic to penauts.

Gray Hawk Grill did not disappoint!! Food was delish, drinks were on point and service was great. We had steak and eggs, truffle burger and eggs Benedict. The steak was mouth watering and cooked perfectly. My friends burger was also cooked perfectly and the brioche bun is an awesome touch. The scrambled eggs were hot and fluffy and the Eggs Benedict were cooked to perfection. To wash it down we ordered a carafe of bloody Mary’s and topped them off Blue cheese stuffed olives…Yum!! Sadly we didn’t take any food pictures prior to eating and there was nothing left on the plates at the end. We will return soon!

We have been to Gray Hawk Grill a number of times this past year and it keeps getting better. We began tonight's meal with the fresh oysters appetizer (both East and West Coast). They were excellent. Our main courses were perfectly prepared and brought to our table steaming hot.

The owner came by our table a few times to make sure everything was to our liking and the wait staff was very attentive. Gray Hawk is definitely our 'Go To' UES restaurant.

Very nice atmosphere. Lovely brunch cocktail fit $7. Brunch was rather meager… salad? 4 tablespoons worth for $14… next to an equally priced piece of salmon… odd pricing. But staff was attentive and friendly.

We all thought the food was terrific and the choices are great. What bothered me was the lack of distance between tables and the fact that not all the waiters were wearing masks. At this time of a global pandemic I feel these are a must. I understand the need for a small business to make money but the safety of the diners is much more important. Please consider less tables, more distance, dividers and definitely a mask for the servers. I will
Not be coming back there for now. Didn’t feel safe

Food was incredible - got the truffle burger, shrimp linguine, and the Caesar salad. Martinis were great and wine by the glass was served as a healthy pour. We were, however, seated very close to the door and it was extremely cold. We asked to be moved and we’re not able to but another table next to us ended up getting moved back. I wore my jacket most of the night and was still freezing. Won’t be booking through open table again but will call to set a reservation to guarantee that we’ll be seated in the back

Im glad you enjoyed the food. Apologies for the cold, our winter vestibule was delayed but should be up by 11/15. It was great chatting with you and your guest, im sorry I never got word you wanted to move. Had I known I would have found you a warmer spot. Thanks so much for joining us tonight. I hope to see you both again soon. - Best, Steve.

We visited the Gray Hawk Grill to celebrate my son’s birthday. We felt like welcomed guests from the minute we walked through the door. The food and the attentive service were exceptional and the desserts are not to be missed!
I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

Everything about Gray Hawk Grill was great. The food was really good and plated nicely. The service was impeccable. The owner came around to the tables to introduce himself and make sure everyone had a good meal. The ambiance was great.

I thought the food was average however the service and attentiveness made up for it. I think most restaurants today are ordinary but they are ordinary with poor service, therefore this one exceeded the others.

Food was excellent, but they seem to be struggling with what they are - fine dining or a pub (there was a TV in the dining room). I'd suggest they stick with fine dining.

Really disappointing experience. We were practically the only customers on the restaurant and several mistakes were made.1) The wrong order came out for one of the guests. Tem minutes later the right order came out if the kitchen, dry and inedible. 2) When we ordered coffee/tea, only the coffee came. We had to remind server to bring the tea, 4) the manager never once came and asked how things were and 5) restaurant should have offered something as an apology for the meal screw up (maybe a free dessert?). Would not return it recommend this place.

Had a fabulous meal at Gray Hawk Grill. The Buffalo cauliflower had fantastic heat and the beet and goat cheese salad was really tasty. The Miso Black Cod was a standout and the Cacio e Pepe hit the spot. This restaurant offers service with a smile - it’s a neighborhood favorite and after last nights dinner I understand why!

Cocktails excellent. Romaine in caesar was past its prime. Chopped salad fine. Steak very good, frozen fries. Salmon very good, some asparagus was stems only. Nice chocolate cake. Priced a bit high for UES. Will give it another shot at some point.
