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 .

Wonderful experience, would highly recommend. Our food was great, the caramelized onions that were served with our entree was out of this world. Our waiter Paul was the best, great service! Definitely would come back here.

I recently visited my old hometown and regular steakhouse haunt Grill 23 on a Sunday night. It wasn't super busy and we had a reservation, but got sat next to the restroom anyway. We ordered two kobe cap steaks that were way too salty and their exterior appearance was very dry, as if they sat under heat lamps too long. The Clientele dress ranged from tracksuits to jeans; one, maybe two suit coats total could be seen. Overall, our experience was not the same steakhouse experience I remember having when frequenting this establishment years ago.

Our waiter was good and honest.

The service and food was wonderful. A very beautiful restaurant. They were very accommodating when we would be late for our reservation.
I was disappointed the tables weren’t adequately spaced due to COVID. A large group was sat about 1 foot away from us and I was very weary about it.

Food was phenomenal from the appetizers, through the main course and ending with dessert. Couldn’t have asked for a more attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Can’t wait to dine there again

The food was AMAZING. I have never had a better steak in my life. The tots were mind blowing. What sets this place above all others is the service. From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty. Our server Cooper was outstanding.
