    This restaurant is considered a premier fine dining establishment in my community, and it well earns this title. Each entree is a complete meal, no sides needed. The salads are fresh. My husband enjoyed the soup of the day, which was tomato-based. The part that I appreciated the most was that our dining companion had several food allergies and had to be very careful about what she ordered. The waitperson conferred with the chef, who suggested some modifications. She was very happy with her meal, and we were delighted by the responsive service and the fact that there was a real chef in the kitchen who understood the questions.

    Outside seating atmosphere great for summer dining. Feels like casual but upscale dining. Drinks were offered in a timely fashion, and wait staff was friendly and didn’t rush us to order our meals. Each of the three of us ordered two appetizers, and each received one at a time as requested. Menu offered some unique choices which were all very good, as was the wine. Would definitely return.

    We were there in the afternoon with our mom to celebrate her birthday. She said her filet mignon was perfectly cooked and very tender. My salad was clean and the dressing lovely and not overdone. Most memorable: impeccable service (rare since COVID) and yummy house-made ice cream. Mine was lemon with a lovely burnt sugar note. Delish!

    We requested and were seated at an outdoor table. Seating on edge of parking lot but we'll spaced. Fantastic, creative drinks menu, but we would like to see mocktails listed as well. I loved my grapefruit jalapeno margarita. Octopus cooked perfectly. Veal medallions were amazing. Delicious Panna Cotta and almond cheesecake. Our server was very professional. We'll be back!

    We've eaten lunches & dinners at Grille 3501 probably close to 75 times over many years for various occasions and just because. Generally our go to place! Last night, I'd say my for the first time, my husband and I were split on our opinions. As usual, my husband got the mussels as an appetizer, always delicious, and he had the salmon which he also enjoyed. I tried something different as an appetizer, the Shrimp lettuce wraps. Not flavorful enough. Then I went to my usual, the Filet Mignon. It's usually done perfectly and all elements are spot on. This time it was cooked well beyond the medium requested ( our waitress Olivia, who was great, did offer to get me another one but I hate for my husband to finish eating while I'm getting started) but the sauce was very overly salty and the mashed potatoes were lumpy and bland. We'll return but for the first time, I can't rave about our go to restaurant! 🙁

    In town for concert usually eat out 1-2 times a week and wish this restaurant was closer to home. Food was some of the best. Good variety well prepared great flavor and freshness. Service was very good. Olivia was personable and professional. She added to the great night we had by her pleasant personality. I asked for a a slight deviation from the menu and they did as I asked. They had a larger wine selection than I expected Ambience was calming and everything was very clean. Bar was small but well stocked with variety and the chairs were ostrich. Very cool. The dessert which I usually don’t have was superior and unexpected. Their regular dessert chef was out but I wish I met her. If you are in town I highly recommend you make a reservation ahead of your stay. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    The chairs were not comfortable. The heavy iron frame was hard to move on the carpeted floor. Several pieces of bread were very hard. My small lobster tails dish was so spicy that I couldn't eat it. The soup was good as was the replacement short ribs dish. My wife's cod and her pear martini were very good. The service was good-excellent. The dense chocolate brownie that we took home for desert was very good.

    Our server was fantastic! Usually the food is very good but I found it just ok and perhaps it was what I ordered ; crab rolls, shrimp lettuce wraps and large Caesar salad. The shrimp lettuce wraps had an unusual taste, the crab mango rolls had very little taste and the salad had too much dressing. The prices also have gone up which was expected given the economy. I will go there again to see if things change for the better.

    We made this reservation to celebrate our 40 th wedding anniversary. We had no idea the restaurant was open for graduation parties, not normally open on Sundays. Menu was limited. There was one person working the restaurant, she had to barmaid and waitress. She did the best she could considering the situation. You could tell she was frustrated and tired. We were in no hurry. However her first words to us were the kitchen closes in 10 minutes. We felt a little rushed. Certainly not the experience we were expecting on our anniversary

    Was very happy to get a last minute reservation on a Friday evening. Definitely one of the most popular spots in the vicinity for consistently good food and drinks. The restaurant and bar were not crowded by any stretch of the imagination. PERHAPS it was due to the truly obnoxious volume at which the piped in background music was played all evening. Our server struggled to hear, cupping her ear every time we spoke with her. We could not enjoy simple dinner conversation without straining or forsaking privacy as we had to shout to be heard. It made for a miserable dining experience. In response to the following question, no I would not recommend based on this experience.
