Always wonderful-best steak and Caesar salad in Boston-not to mention the creamed spinach and hot fudge sundae.

We got a great table and our server William was so warm and friendly and attentive. Food was beyond amazing. The peach cobbler is a must! The rosé sangria is my new obsession

Food and wine was excellent as always, but our server, Christopher, really made the night. He was equally as professional as he was charming. He knows how to read his tables and it was exactly the kinda service we needed. The sommelier (can’t remember his name, obv also did his job well) was also tip top. Thanks gents, we’ll be back soon!

Grill 23 has wonderful food and a great wait staff. It is VERY expensive (everything is ala carte and the wine list while nice and large, is very costly) and surprisingly noisy. But with that said, this has to be up there with the best restaurants in all of Boston.

We loved everything about Grill 23. The decor and ambiance were what a steakhouse should be. Hector and his associates were great and the food was dynamite. It was a dining experience not just a meal. Do yourself a favor and get the 100 day dry aged Ribeye. Might just be the best steak I’ve ever had

The wine, service and ambiance were each 5-Star! The food, including the dry-aged NY Sirloin, potatoes, breads, espresso and vegetable were a disappointment and rated just 3-Stars.

Fabulous! Best steak I’ve ever had (100 day aged ribeye). Calamari, drinks, and creme brûlée also were wonderful. Service top notch!

The highlight of a Grill 23 experience is the steak. The dry aged ribeye and Kobe cap are always first rate. No sauce necessary but they have some interesting selections if you prefer.

Lobster Mac and Cheese and mashed potatoes are better at a number of other Boston places but you’re here for the steak, right? :-)

Desserts are delicious. The seasonal cobbler is a great summer choice.

Best steak I have ever had - have never heard of a cap steak previously - will be my new favorite cut!!!

Responded on July 29, 2021

Thank you Sarah! The “eye of the ribeye” is sometimes called the “deckle” or “cap”. The interesting thing is, the cap, is more marbled with fat than the eye, and as beef lovers know, fat is flavor!!! The American Kobe Cap is nothing but flavor. Glad you enjoyed yourself! Jeff Osowski, GM
