Steak ruined by hugely over salted. Very disappointing - the sides were average but a $70+ steak ruined by over seasoning is inexcusable given the reputation this place wishes to project.

We came on Sunday for a Valentines Day dinner. It was my first experience at the restaurant, and nothing disappointed. Our server Mac was fantastic. The knowledge of the meals and menu along with his attentiveness was impeccable. I loved the decor, the interior was beautiful, the noise level was low which made it a great place to have dinner and good conversation. Highly suggest Grill 23 and I am really looking forward to coming back.

Hostess couldn't be bothered when we arrived and the other hostess who was also the coat person gave me a dirty stare when I asked her where the bathroom was. The waiter Hector was excellent. Both of our appetizers bordered on being cold--warm appetizers were ordered.

My wife's mac and chesse was sub par and so was mine--no lobster in mine and the menu said there would be. For a restaurant that advertises itself as a cut above--- this experience was not. I was in the restaurant business so I know what a great restaurant is like.

This is the first negative review I have given in forty years. This was a gift for my wife and I was sad that she had a bad experience.

We come here every year. It is pricey so it is a very special event for us. We haven't been let down yet.
Alfonso our waiter was superb. The steak was to die for (it always is). The drinks were excellent and the table was great. I'm already dying to go back next Valentines Day.

Thanks guys.

Two loyal customers.

The dry aged sirloin was unbelievable. The sauted scallops were delicious. Our waiter Alfonso was great, very attentive and knowledgeable. The tots were disappointing and wished we had gotten a different side dish. Overall we will definitely be back

Every visit is great. My third time and I was not disappointed. The restaurant was lively and but not overwhelming. Service was very attentive. I checked in for my reservation on a Saturday night and was seated promptly. We were really happy and look forward to returning. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Even on your busiest night you have the hardest working people making everyone’s evening flawless and wonderful. Adam and Ryan at the bar serve the BEST martinis (I shall reserve final judgement for my next taste test... however Ryan made it extra dirty and that may have won out for me). The Sommelier on the top floor was so passionate about his wines, we were excited for anything he had to recommend (and he did recommend a fabulous white to accompany our steak). Our waiter was so respectful and accommodating, he made us realize your hiring standard at Grill 23 is VERY high. Thank you for yet another wonderful anniversary dinner. We come back every time because of the special experience and the flawless culinary experience.
