One of the best steakhouse dining experiences we’ve had! Service & quality of food were superb. There is an unbelievable vibe with the staff… everyone hustles to help each other & get the details right. This is very noticeable vs. a dysfunctional or unorganized staff. Everything was done right. 100+ page wine list, ask for a somm… you won’t be disappointed! Highly recommend! Great job guys!

Over the decades I have been a patron of the Grill, it has lived up to its reputation as the best steak in the city. Being a steak house requires above and beyond as the competition is fierce. From the steak, the seafood, service, and attention to detail.

The Grill 23 lives up to its hard-earned name. Best Steak house in the city and a serious contender for the country.

Great historical building with beautiful architecture. The food was all excellent. The kobe beef cap melted in your mouth. The sides were hugh for sharing. The baked potato could serve 4. The wine list is over the top. Ask for help. The sommelier was excellent. Also incredible selection at the bar with all the choices included on the wine list. Service started out excellent and slowed with dessert. The desserts are also hugh. The coconut cake was excellent.

The noise level was extreme, so my two hard of hearing guests had a difficult time following the conversation. I understand I should have requested a quieter table upstairs. Aside from that, the meal was very good and our server Hector was superb - gracious and accommodating. It was wonderful to have that level of professional service these days.

Second (and third) trip here this week. That cap steak. Oh. My. Lort! It’s like steak flavored crispy butter in your mouth. And I love the little ice trick they use on the martini glass. Pretty cool.

Very nice, some slow service spots but very attentive when they were around our table. The steaks were very salty, but good .

Grill 23 continues to be, without peer, the best steakhouse in Boston. If you are looking for the true, old-school steakhouse experience, there is no reason to look anywhere else. The food is fantastic, the drinks and wine list are amazing, and the service is exceptional. It will cost you, but it is well-worth it.

When I made the reservation, I requested a corner table or booth; however, I was seated with another couple, at a joining table. I went to the front and spoke to the host, and he moved us. I didn’t get his name, but thank you.

Food was excellent, and Tim, our waiter was great. Overall experience was an 8.

Anniversary dinner with visiting family. Grill 23 has been a long time favorite restaurant. This time we brought our son, my husband’s sister, her husband and son. They were over the moon with the food and the experience. We had ribeye steak and halibut, the famous tots, spinach and broccoli. Chocolate cake, creamer brûlée and the chocolate hip cookies completed the meal. Everything was fantastic! Another amazing meal!

We came from Florida to show our sons colleges and we were recommended this place for dinner by friends. It was really nice, great cocktails, food, service. A classic American steakhouse. Oysters were also really good. Congrats
