    Honestly the worst experience I’ve ever had. Overkill on the service to the point my date and I couldn’t even get a word in during our dinner. Many times the servers came by and attempted to take our plates as we were eating and then tell us to take our time. I had a lovely piece of hair in my food as well. Multiple times was bumped by servers trying to get to another table. The funny thing is, the place wasn’t even busy. Not sure what the deal was with this place but they were not in their game. I paid for my food, hair and all but mentioned to the manager what we experienced and she attempted to give us a gift certificate which I declined because we won’t be returning. For a nearly $300 bill, I expected a bit more in regards to quality of food and more of a relaxed environment for me as the guest. Not worth the money for any reason.

    A5 Japanese Wagyu is best described as steak flavored butter! It will literally melt in your mouth! Nice place, good service, delicious steaks and a solid wine selection. Only complaint was the bathroom. Other than that- a steakhouse that offers choice cuts and smiles!

    Service was very slow. Waiter asked if we were celebrating anything. We said we were celebrating our engagement. No dessert, champagne, etc… usually at higher end places you would think they would bring you something to celebrate. As mentioned before the services was very slow and we didn’t get a check in once food was dropped off. Would have liked to ask for more sour cream, salt, pepper.

    We were all in for a unique and quality dining experience. The server lead the way, but the delivery of our meals was below avg for three people who have reasonable and diverse experiences. Wanted the meal to match the potential. Disappointing at best.

    Today we tried several dishes. Starting with the calamari to share. We had chosen elk, chicken, salmon and pasta. All is perfect made. The service is one step ahead. Good selection of wines, beers, cocktails and soft drinks. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. I only can recommend this location.

He made great suggestions. Food was excellent including a New York cut and filet. Both cooked perfectly. Place got pretty busy within a few minutes. Overall wife and I enjoyed our experience.

    The quality of the food and food prep was disappointing at best. The server and manager were very nice, but that’s as positive as this review gets. Ambience was undesirable. It’s like they stuffed as many tables into a tiny, loud place as they can. The steak was advertised as a dry-aged steak. Did not taste like it one bit. Under seasoned and chewy. So very disappointing. Service was also pretty disorganized. Someone took our bread plates to make room for our meal when it arrived. Halfway through the meal, they brought out bread. The whole experience was just bad…and it killed the mood of our special date.

    Service was a bit confused throughout our time at the restaurant. Wrong drinks were served and one side dish that we didn’t order sat on our table for a few minutes before a member of the waitstaff picked it up and took it to the proper table. I thought that was a bit on the unhealthy side. The steaks we ordered were cooked properly, but the taste was missing some of the character that I normally associate with steaks ordered from a high quality steakhouse. That could be due to the lack of a proper sear as the exterior of the steak I got was more grey in color an was missing the char that, to me, makes a steak look more appealing. Another possibility was the steak hadn’t been aged long enough. That being said, the sides, appetizers, and cocktails we ordered were all very tasty, but not enough for me to rate my experience here as anything more than 3 stars.

    The service was excellent! The food was pricey and the food was delicious. We ordered oysters on a half shell, escargot, truffle fries, New York strip steak, and Wagyu steak. I had the Waygu steak 6oz. Med. Rare. It was like butter. Except the Waygu short rib. There was more fat than meat. Then they smothered it with gravy. When folks smother really good meat with a sauce I get suspicious that something's not right. Overall it was a nice way to spend a Mother's Day dinner for two.

    We reserved for Mother’s Day expecting and phenomenal meal. Our appetizers came out about 5 minutes after ordering them and the arrived cold and rubbery. The did replace them, when they arrived they were hot but still very rubbery. Several dishes we ordered were great including the Ratetoni Wagu Ragú, and the Salmon. The New York steak was very tough and definitely not what I was expecting from a restaurant like this. I’ll give them a 6.5 out of 10.

The food was excellent and as stated the service via Alex was superb. We will be returning in the near future. Highly recommend Greystone as our experience was fantastic.

    Not that it's the restaurant's fault, but we had to step over drunken, unwashed homeless people to get in the door. Then they had the front door open and had heat lamps on the outside, but no heat on the inside so it was freezing cold the entire time. The seafood tower appetizer was ok, nothing special and boring sauces on the side. The bread was good but we were given a very meager amount. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were great, as were the fries, but overall the experience was just "meh".

    1st time back to Greystone in awhile. Busy night, but we had reservations and were seated immediately. I know it’s important to try and get as many customers in the building, but they sat us in the far corner upstairs next to a closet. Didn’t enjoy where we sat but didn’t take away from the food or the friendly waitress.

    I was looking forward to this restaurant and some Wagyu beef. My wife and I had not been out for a bit and were ready to spend. We arrived early for our reservation and went to the bar. The bartender was working on her bottle inventory and when she was done, about 3-4 minutes he got around to us. She didn't even look up and acknowledge us. Once she did take out drink order it took some time to make it and then spilled some of my wife's $19 drink on her wrist. I guess that a best practice because she didn't remake it. On to dinner. It took 5-7 minutes for my server to show and then another 5-7 minutes to get our drinks. Then I ordered out appetizer and told my server we will decide on the entrée later she, and I quote "I need to warn you that you should order now because the chef needs to know what they need to prepare. I was planning on spending a lot of money but after that I didn't. No Wagyu. I expect a certain level of service when I spend that much money. My server spoiled the night. The food was very good, cudos to the chef. But a bad server cannot save a great meal. I will not go back and I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I was going to put this review on Greystone's own site but they don't have a review section so.....
