It was a busy Thanksgiving at Grill 23 but tables are nicely spaced so it was easy to talk while enjoying the people watching. We had a great server who was personal, professional and not too formal. We enjoyed a great bottle of Willamette pinot noir, the crab salad, a beef dish, swordfish, and three sides. All was delicious and we took most of sides home. We had a pumpkin brulee for dessert which was delicious and brought home their famous coconut cake. A great experience for the two of us.

Thanksgiving with our son and his girlfriend. The seafood tower was excellent- the best part of the meal. Our entrees were hot but somewhat underwhelming for the price. The atmosphere is lovely but it was very loud with other families. Our server was excellent. Holidays are a difficult test for restaurants- especially during a challenge like a pandemic. Grill 23 will remain a favorite in our book.

Thanksgiving dinner. Disappointed that there was no soup, pumpkin or apple pie on the menu. The cauliflower au gratin seemed to have a lot of garlic or something that was not appetizing.

The food here is always...and I mean always outstanding in every way. Everything is prepared with such care and the freshest ingredients. The waitstaff make the meal even better. And don't skip dessert because the pastry chef is genius. It is always a wonderful night out!

As this dinner was a celebration for both thanksgiving and a birthday, we were very impressed with both the taste of the food, the high level of service, and the elegant fine dining atmosphere. The thanksgiving dinner was tasty and the portions were of perfect size. The waiter provided a superior level of service; he offered a wonderful choice for a red wine by the glass. My company especially enjoyed the orange chocolate cake with “happy birthday” written on a vanilla cookie. As the day was thanksgiving and the restaurant was full, so I was amazed at the punctuality and the attentiveness of the staff; ie, not once did the level on my water glass go below the half way point. Even though I would had perfected my meat a few degrees warmer, but considering the circumstances, I was fine with temperature. The restaurant is a real gem!

Old school, proper steakhouse. Large drinks, large steaks. Perfectly cooked, served with style. Fantastic (if pricey) wine list, a treasure trove. One of the best steakhouses in America, and the best in Boston by a WIDE margin…

A little noisy (even on the second floor of the restaurant) but overall ambience was good. The servers were friendly and checked back on us a few times. They made our special occasion celebration on to remember. Thanks!
