We went to this restaurant for the first time for our anniversary. The service was amazing and the food was even better. I would absolutely eat here again. They even took the time to surprise us with a candle and chocolate designed with "Happy Anniversary" for our desert. Great job Grill 23!

Ive been many times but just not recently in the last year. G23 is one of my faves, and while the expectation that Saturday night would be a little noisy, there were two big issues with our steaks that I have not experienced before. Too salty, and too rare. I was celebrating a special occasion so did not want to complain as it would have delayed our experience. Overall though, I see them as the highest end steakhouse in Boston. And I’ve been to them all. Well done G23 :-)

My husband and I dined this past Thursday evening and had one of the best dinners we have ever had at Grill 23, it is amazing that this restaurant just keeps getting better. My dry-aged steak was delightful, juicy and full of flavor, my husband had the lamb chops and they were so tender and meaty....cannot wait to go back!!!! Thank you manager Greg and server David for making this dinner so fantastic for us!!!!!

Highly recommend the Tuna Tartar! Salads are the size of an entree. Was able to get a bottle of wine that was half the volume of a traditional bottle for half the price - nice! Service was excellent. Nice, comfortable vibe. Excellent steakhouse. Martinis came in not just chilled, but iced glasses. Great touch!

Grill 23 continues to set the standard in Boston for quality and preparation of meats. Service can be perfunctory, however, and attentiveness of the waitstaff tends to wane as the meal proceeds. We experienced inordinate waits to order desert or request the check. Frittes accompanying the bavette were cold. They were replaced on request, but I was charged for the replacement.

Wonderful dinner with friends we haven't seen for years. Staff was accommodating and didn't rush us. They seemed to know exactly when were ready to order and let us talk most of the evening. It was relaxing and a great experience.

Impeccable service, old school attention to the customer, AMAZING wine list ( hence the Wine Spectator Awards) , menu had entrees for every palate, the Crab Cake has plenty of crab flavor, the Twin Filets were superb, festive atmosphere but with that underlying sophistication of an era of opulence of days gone by. Outstanding in every way.
