Absolutely fantastic! Maybe the best steakhouse in town! If you are a wine lover, beware! The best wine list in town and reasonably priced!

First time visit. Food was excellent. Service was good . There was a time period where we were waiting for the waiter to return. Expected I guess with the help shortage. All the steaks were excellent. I would recommend for a special occasion.

Grill 23 & Bar is a great place to take for a more upscale steakhouse experience. I took my wife here yesterday to celebrate our anniversary, and I'm extremely impressed with the hospitality. The servers knew that it was our anniversary and took special care and attention. For example, when we ordered a "famous coconut cake" dessert, it came with a happy anniversary white chocolate bar next to it.

The steak is great! My wife thought it was amazing, but in general I've found to lean saltier for my tastebuds.

Very nice dining experience! The wait staff was EXCELLENT! My spouse got an awesome whiskey tasting flight that was unique. The steak itself was just okay but very overpriced. The shrimp cocktail was way overpriced for the 4 shrimp you received. But the ambiance and wait staff were top notch!

The food was great but the service was whatever and it felt overpriced given other options like Ruth Chris. I would recommend if you are in the area but I would not go out of my way to go again.

It's quite simply, the most exciting, enjoyable restaurant in the city. It's a combination of so many vibes and styles (classic steakhouse, yet trendy hipster feel, attentive staff who also amazingly read your needs and desire to be left alone if need be) and it's unbetable every time. The wine list is amazing and while it may be intimidating, they have multple sommelier's on staff who are so helpful. And get the chocolate chip cookies and an espresso martini to wrap up your night. Virtually a perfect dining experience.

My fiancée and I are spending the weekend in Boston and we like to try to have a fancy date night whenever we go away. Last night we went here and we had an amazing meal. Our steaks were incredible, the mushrooms were great, the tater tots with truffle oil were some of the best tots we’ve ever had, and the homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert were unbelievable. Hector was a fantastic server. He was very attentive, helpful, and kind. We will definitely be returning to Grill 23 in the future!
