This restaurant is a favorite of our family! Something for everyone. Food quality and service are top notch. From appetizers to dessert our expectations were far exceeded. Definitely a go to for special occasions in our family. Well worth the hour drive and expensive price tag!

The food and service were wonderful. However the tables seemed to be a little too close together and you could hear other patrons conversations.

Great get together with friends! Our waiter Tim was excellent. Dinner and drinks were fantastic. Only not great thing was the loud foul mouthed jerks seated next to us. Not the restaurants fault on that one of course though.

Steak was undercooked. A manager happened by just as I cut into it and whisked it away to have it cook led longer. When I cut into it again, I pointed out it was still raw inside. I appreciated that the steak was taken off the bill, but a restaurant known for steak should be able to cook it. The wine was fabulous and the veggie sides were delicious — cauliflower gratin and sautéed broccoli. The Caesar salad had way too much dressing and the crème brûlée had surprisingly little flavor. I couldn’t tell if it needed salt, sugar or vanilla.

Birthday celebration for my 15 year old son. Lousy table near bar where we had full view of completely drunk woman stumbling around
Service was average for price. Abe and Louie much better experience

We always enjoy our dinners at Grill 23. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the hash browns and broccoli were particularly delicious.
The sommelier was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next visit.

Todo lo que Pedimos estuvo Perfecto, deliciosa la carne , los macarrones , la hasbrown , el servicio muy bueno, sirven rápido los platillos , en lo particular sentí un poco ruidoso por los comensales de alado y había mucha gente que es normal , preferiría un poco más tranquilo.
Es más regrese al día siguiente, cancelando el Reataurant que traíamos en mente por volver a disfrutar los platillos .
