The food was mediocre for the high prices. The service was excellent. You can get a better value and better food at other high end steak houses. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed.

Amazing food and amazing service. My only criticism is the noise level is very loud. If that is not an issue for you, then I would highly recommend this place!

Went with my wife and 2 - 10 year old children. Food and service were excellent. Chef made chicken tenders for the kids even though they are not on the menu. Great place for dinner. Prices might seem high - But great service and great food make it feel like a good value.

Had not been there in 17 years and it was as good as I hoped for; definitely will returtn and not wait so long. Martini was first rate, steak was delicious and perfectly prepared, as were the salads and side dishes. Also, highly recommend the coconut cake for dessert. It's expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

I wanted a good steak. I got it. Meat was outstanding.
Appetizers were very average though. Tuna tartare was tasteless, french onion soup was barely warm.
Service was very good and friendly, while general restaurant atmosphere was odd. Restaurant interior requires renovation: flimsy chairs and worn out chairs, cheap office style ceilings.

This was my first time to this restaurant and everything about it was wonderful. The ambiance was perfect, my husband could have a conversation and actually hear one another even though the place was packed too! Our waiter was great, very personable and hilarious....also we never once felt rushed or bothered but at the same time he was very attentive. To top it off both of our meals were excellent, one of the best meals out we have had in a while. Overall five star experience at a five star restaurant. I look forward to the next time we can get in there. Ps. This was our ten year anniversary and we talked about making this a regular anniversary restaurant :)

Our steaks were very good, however the calamari did not taste fresh and the lobster in the mac n' cheese didn't taste fresh either. Overall not at the level I previously recall and not to our expectations.

We are frequent visitors to steakhouses. We've tried national chains and independents. We've tried East Coast and West Coast. We've tried US and Europe. Grill 23 rates very high on our list. This was our first visit, and we will visit here again next time we're in Boston. The food and service is top notch. The chocolate cake was tasty, but a bit dry. The bartender certainly knows how to make a drink. But most importantly, the chef really knows how to cook a steak.

Our party of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our experience Saturday evening. From the greeting inside to our fabulous waiter cooper. All foods from chowder to entrees was on point. Just a great overall dining experience! Compliments to the kitchen staff and chef. Wonderful! We’re anticipating our return. Thanks. Ciao for now!

A fantastic dining experience. The only issue would be having a reservation at 5 and not being able to at least sit at the cocktail bar until 5 . The cocktail bar should be opened a half hour earlier that way people that show up 15 minutes early for their reservations are not turned away back into 30 degree weather . Other than that everything was great.

The classiest steakhouse in Boston. With a magnificent wine list and delectable side dishes to pair with steaks that up the stakes, Grill 23 is the premier dining experience for an elegant evening.
