It's always a great meal at Grill 23 and this was no different. The martinis are the best in the city and the ribeye was cooked to perfection. We are frequent guests and they always make us feel right at home.

I’d like to take this opportunity to give all due credit to the always fantastic staff of Grill 23 in preserving the environment patrons have come to expect from the steakhouse while adapting to the pandemic to make customers feel safe but not overburdened.

Wife and I have eaten here a few times now for special occasions. The food was as great as we remembered it. Staff was attentive and friendly. For those concerned about safety they had plenty of distance between tables and took steps to make you feel safe.

Absolutely amazing meal!!! I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant!! The service was wonderful, and the wait staff is experienced and friendly, as well as well-trained. The dining room is quiet, and tables are spread out as expected in these covid times. Everything from the champagne and appetizers (try the A5 Waygu!!) to the perfectly cooked steaks and delicious sides... it was excellent!!! If you get the chance, order their 100-day aged ribeye.... this steak is wet-aged, and has incredible tenderness without the dry aged flavor changes. It may be some time before you see a steak like this again!!

Keep up the great work 23!!!

Our server (Benji) was wonderful. My husbands swordfish was not encrusted or flavored in any way- contrary to what the menu described. That was a bit of a bummer though I’m sure it would have been corrected had my husband been willing to mention something. Drinks were great, everything else was awesome.

Valentine’s Day at Grill 23 was very nice. The ambiance was great the service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Very classy place, expensive but when it’s good you do t mind spending the money.

Yes, It’s that good. My wife and I flew into Boston for Valentine’s Day weekend simply to have dinner at grill 23. Joel provided fantastic service and we had a very memorable dining experience. Everything was exactly as it should have been. We’ve eaten there quite a few times in the past and I’m sure will eat there quite a few times more in the future. It’s that good.

Food was first class. Service was spotty at best. The restaurant is very pricey but the price is currently not worth the value.

We love Grill 23 and wanted to have our Valentine’s Day dinner there this year. We were seated upstairs for the first time. The noise level is minimal and we enjoyed it better than downstairs. Started with an order of shrimp cocktail and crab cake, it may have been the best shrimp cocktail I’ve had! Our main course was the 100 day aged prime ribeye cooked medium, my husband added the truffle butter to his, the lobster Mac N cheese, and the tots. Everything was outstanding! Our desert was espresso martinis! We love Grill 23 and can’t wait to come back!
