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

Amazing restaurant, we loved the atmosphere, the bar has an amazing whisky selection, even with top Japanese blends. Dry aged meat is top notch and the wine list probably the best you can find in Boston.

Meal was just ok. Bread was cold My filet was bland but my husband enjoyed his Kobe Steak. Salad and sides were just ok. Dessert was very disappointing. Ordered a chocolate martini that came with a layer of ice at the top that should have been strained. For $22 a drink I couldn’t believe the quality of it. I was very underwhelmed with the whole meal. Service was ok. We felt bad our waiter seemed stressed. He did the best he could. For that kind of money for a meal I expect to be wowed. I wouldn’t go back.

I'm so sorry you felt underwhelmed. I can say that our bread basket is a variety of bread but it is not served warm. Our martini glasses are chilled with crushed ice and this is part of the experience, it is something that only we do but upon request we can serve it differently. The filet mignon is soft and tender but unfortunately is very lean. I love a well marbled steak. I will be sending you a message containing my contact info, I hope we can connect and change the way you feel. Jeff O, GM
