    Outstanding! We needed to be completely outdoors and they went out of their way to set up a table just for us. The food was excellent, the servers were terrific and we all can't wait to return!

    Gray Hawk Grill continues to impress. We went for a late dinner. Although the outdoor seating area is quite welcoming, we opted to sit inside. The menu features several new dishes for the Summer—I tried the sautéed shrimp with asparagus and would definitely order it again. We also had the double truffle burger and the steak frites—both of which were delicious. I also recommend the buffalo cauliflower 🔥.

    We were a group of 7 on Mothers Day. We had one child in a high chair and another seated. Despite the fact they were busy our orders were taken and the food came out quickly, which is helpful when you have kids. We were not rushed to finish . The variety of items on the menu provided good choices for all in our group including the kids. Our granddaughter loves the chocolate chip pancakes. My 18 month grandson loved the big picture of the Gray Hawk. We have been at Gray Hawk twice with a larger group and have found it to be a great place to eat for adults and kids.

    This was my first visit to Gray Hawk Grill. The black miso cod was excellent. But the noise was almost unbearable. When you have to yell so you can talk to your guests, that's a problem. For this reason, I wouldn't recommend it.

    The staff seemed completely flummoxed when we arrived. We gave the name on the outdoor reservation and they told us nothing was available. When we pointed to an empty table, they struggled to set it up. We got settled and then, after about five minutes, another person asked if we had a reservation. We repeated the information. And then we sat. No one came. No menus. Nada. We got up and went inside to ask for a coffee and menus. They brought the me UES and after another long wait, two coffees. We said, just one, so they took the other away. No milk, no sweetener. We waited. After a while, I am went back in and asked for sweetener and milk. They came back with milk and a second coffee. No milk. We finally got the preliminaries out of the way and gave our order. From that point on, they seemed to have a better handle on things. It was a weird experience. Seemed like maybe new staff and no communication.

    Another delicious meal at Gray Hawk, one of our go to restaurants. The food is fresh and always well prepared. We love the Buffalo cauliflower appetizer and the truffled hamburger. Steve, the owner and host is always friendly and welcoming. You won’t be disappointed.

    I ordered Steak Frites, and wife ordered Shrimp Scampi with Pasta. Both were excellent. My steak cooked as desired, flavorful, juicy, and tender. Fries crispy and properly salted as requested. Wife enjoyed her dish too. Service was very good and attentive without being overbearing. Would definitely go back.

    Ms. Lee Liss, Im sorry you didn't enjoy your dinner last night. It was great to meet you. I wish you would have said something regarding the noise, we did have a full room last night but Im sure we could have accommodated you. When you `told me your pasta lacked flavor I did offer to get you anything on the menu with our compliments, you declined, preferring to take it home. Next time please let us know while you are still dining with us so we may correct any issues. -Steve. 425

    Excellent food and service sums up our first experience. The double truffle burger with parmesan fries was outstanding. The orrichettie with sausage and brocolinni well above average. No inexpensive by a long shot, burger was $30 but the food was excellent and the service attentive. The ambiance is a bit standard bar but not a reason to avoid.

    A very positive experience overall. A great host and attentive waitstaff; well thought out dishes - all presented very well and delicious. While the place doesn't look like much from the street, upon entering, the restaurant is very well designed and very comfortable. Steve, the owner, is heavily involved and eager to please his guests. Impressive wine list built by someone who understands and values great wines, but with terrific selections that are not overpriced. Very impressed with Gray Hawk and I will be back!

    This is my 4th time at Grey Hawk. The manager, remembers me and always comes over to visit. We discuss the wine list etc. The New York strip is tender and perfectly cooked (which isn't easy since I prefer black and blue style) . The seafood tower is a treat. The wine list has reasonable options. This is my go to steak place on the UES and I have tried most. I also appreciate the atmosphere which isn't as noisy and bustling as say a Quality Meats so you can have a quiet conversation. I highly recommend it.

    The service was great, the wait staff was very attentive and even gave us an extra glass of wine! The food was very good, there are not a lot of steakhouses on the UES and while this isnt an old school steakhouse it is a very nice alternative. The burrata was really good.
