Food was great! Lots of tables open and sat people in one area.
My friends were visiting from England and needed a recommendation for a place to have a lovely sit down dinner on their last night in Boston. Since they were in Back Bay I recommended Grill 23 and made their reservation. Later that evening they text me to say the food was excellent and they had a fabulous evening!. Being Saturday night of course it was very busy and a couple next to them complained about being seated near a service area. The manager Greg Dickinson came to apologize about the chaos and gave them all their wine for free. When he asked what brought them they told him I had recommended Grill 23 and he wrote on his business card for me to receive 2 glasses of champagne on him for my next visit as a thank you for recommending the restaurant!
Grill 23 is a fantastic spot
Food & service was fantastic
Did not love where we were seated
Amazing! Never disappoints on all levels. If you don’t like this place you hate fun, people and food!
Very busy night and as a result service was lacking and the food was not up to its usual caliber
Great food and awesome service. Clearly the best steak house in New England.
The food was amazing and the service was fantastic
Celebrating my husbands birthday at Grill 23 and the food and service was outstanding!
I went to Grill 23 and my New York strip was completely over cooked. I was nervous to get it again so I switched my order to fillet mignon, which was good. I specifically asked when I called to have “I love you” written somewhere on the desert which the lady I spoke with said was possible. We weren’t even hungry for dessert but I order it for that reason. When the desert plate came out without the message I was already upset so I didn’t bother sending it back. The people next to us were so intoxicated they got into a physical altercation, which was not pleasant. Overall not a good experience.
Excellent meal and service
I don’t think they were prepared for the number of holiday celebrations. If you were there for a special dinner they really were not able to accommodate.
Probably the best steak I’ve had in quite a long time. Our waiter’s name was Ryan he was excellent explained everything and our orders were to a tee. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone however please do you stack your wallet because it is not cheap.
Great place but overpriced for regular dining.
Everything was superb
Consistently outstanding food and attentive service that is thoughtful, but not obtrusive. Great for a group or a special occasion or both. Attentive service
Nice change of pace from the usual steakhouse chains. The building is beautiful, looks like it may have been a bank at one time, with tall marble columns. The 100 day aged rib eye was one the best steaks I have had in my life. Garret our server was perfect.
the markup on the wines were a bit more than most steak houses tack on
Nice Steakhouse located in the heart of Downtown Boston. Service staff was excellent and the food was great, mainly a mix of surf & turf options. Would recommend for business dinners.
Great food and great service! I will definetly go there again next time I'm in Boston
Single diner, waited 30 minutes for medium rare filet at $51 , it was served well done.
Waiter apologized, no manager or chef stopped by. Nobody seemed to care
Grill 23 is and always has been a Very Nice Place to take the Family out for a well cooked meal - Waitstaff, Matt, was excellent. The busboy's could be alittle more attentive to the tables needs during the entire meal.
The Atmosphere is always Nice & the restaurant is Clean!
Great for Celebration get togethers
Had an amazing dinner with Adam as our bartender. He and his partner at the upstairs bar made us feel welcome, were very knowledgeable, and made it an enjoyable evening. Of course the food is incredible and always lives up to its reputation. One of the best steakhouses in the country.
I love Grill 23. On this particular visit, however, we were seated on the ground floor and surrounded by office parties, and it was very noisy. Since I had reserved a long time ago, I assumed that we'd get a good table, but now I realize that i should have requested a table upstairs. Everything else was perfect.
Always a great experience with top notch service, perfectly prepared food, and excellent cocktails.
Phenomenal food. Best pork chop I have ever had which doesn’t come close to doing it justice. Succulent, savory, scrumptious. Profiteroles were amazing. Great service rounded out a wonderful experience.
The monthly special of rack of venison, from an Iowa ranch was a delightful surprise.Great service.A must visit when in Boston.
Excellent meal and service. Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. Made recoomendations that were perfect.
Outstanding. Not cheap though, definitely pricey, but you get what you pay for.
The quality of the food and service was great. The problem was I could not have a conversation with my date. After being seated in the "romantic" wine room, the GM sat 3 young men who had a great time. I was looking forward to spending a nice night with my special lady. It's really unfortunate that we couldn't hear one another over the F-bombs and stock portfolio discussions. I'm not sure how the GM makes decisions but it is clear that it is not based on customer experience. Too many great options in Boston to return.
Everything and everyone was wonderful. We’ll be back!
The best service of any restaurant. Extremely knowledgeable staff including support, perfect balance between attentive and passive. Cuisine has been perfect every time (4th time at restaurant). Hard to find a dining experience better in the Boston area.
Great food. Terrible acoustics! Extremely noise and not fit for conversation at all! Very good food though. Would not recommend or come back before the noise level is reduced significantly.
Grille 23 always exceed expectations! The hash brown side dish goes with everything! Steaks were cooked to perfection and leave room for dessert! Baileys infused milk with cookies 🍪
This was a very good restaurant however my meal came so quick within 5 minutes of my martini and my husband's contail uwe didn't have a chancs to have our cocktails so we could not order a proper wine to enjoy w our steak and sword fish both dishes we had to order a la carte an expensive meal we had to rush to eat at 530 we were out by 630 the fastest meal ever
Great service and honored my request near fireplace. Thank you, Grille 23.
Great meal. When I casually informed the waiter that two of the entrees were only warm but not hot when they were served, they quickly reacted and comp’d both meals even though it was completely unnecessary to do so.
Service was exceptional.
Somehow my comment in the res that we were celebrating my sister’s birthday was ignored. Otherwise it was pretty perfect.
