Food and wine was excellent as always, but our server, Christopher, really made the night. He was equally as professional as he was charming. He knows how to read his tables and it was exactly the kinda service we needed. The sommelier (can’t remember his name, obv also did his job well) was also tip top. Thanks gents, we’ll be back soon!

Grill 23 has wonderful food and a great wait staff. It is VERY expensive (everything is ala carte and the wine list while nice and large, is very costly) and surprisingly noisy. But with that said, this has to be up there with the best restaurants in all of Boston.

The wine, service and ambiance were each 5-Star! The food, including the dry-aged NY Sirloin, potatoes, breads, espresso and vegetable were a disappointment and rated just 3-Stars.

Fabulous! Best steak I’ve ever had (100 day aged ribeye). Calamari, drinks, and creme brûlée also were wonderful. Service top notch!

The highlight of a Grill 23 experience is the steak. The dry aged ribeye and Kobe cap are always first rate. No sauce necessary but they have some interesting selections if you prefer.

Lobster Mac and Cheese and mashed potatoes are better at a number of other Boston places but you’re here for the steak, right? :-)

Desserts are delicious. The seasonal cobbler is a great summer choice.

What an outstanding experience. The entire staff was phenomenal, accommodating, efficient and we were never waiting for anything. Everything we ordered was simply amazing. The Wagyu couldn't have been better. All of the steaks were perfect. Could not have asked for a better night.

Brought my friend here for his birthday and everything was great! I added a special note to see if we could get a quieter spot and they absolutely accommodated that for us, which I really appreciated!
