Always a good dinner at Grille 3501! My out of town guest really liked the food and setting. The new loft area is really nice. The service was very good. We enjoyed the evening very much. We would definitely recommend Grille 3501!!!

Another great experience. This place is a gem. I hope their 2nd restaurant will be just as good. Our meals were excellent (steak and mahi) and the service was good.

Food was excellent, it did not disappoint! Our server was less than attentive, almost thought she forgot about us. Would have liked more of a selection on the "by the glass" wine list as I would not consume an entire bottle at a meal.

We came here for Valentine's day, even though it was actually the day after. We were seated promptly and it only took a couple of minutes for our server to come and take our drink order. The food was exceptional. I had the lobster ravioli with grits appetizer. My entree was the sea scallops. My partner had the spring roll appetizer and her entree was the short ribs. Everything we had had incredible flavors and, I would say that this was the best meal I've had in quite some time. I definitely plan to come back to try some of the other menu options.

We were there for Valentines Day. They had a 3-course menu with several options for each course. Both of our meals were excellent and the service was very good (slightly off Outstanding as they were very busy, and service felt rushed). We took a reservation that is in their heated outdoor/bar space and it was fine, but not as nice as their regular dining room. We would eat here again.

Valentine's dinner with my wife, I requested seating in the loft, but was given a high table in the bar. They have an upper loft level, but it was full. I don't understand why they thought it was a substitute location for a romantic dinner. Lobster appetiser tasted like hushpuppies from LJS, no lobster meat flavor. Salmon tasted very fishy. Filet mignon was mushy, low quality beef. Will not return.

Went for Valentine's day. Set menu , with a lot of variety. We had scallops with bacon and the lobster appetizers. They were generous and excellent. The main courses of duck and filet mignon were well presented and cooked perfectly. The rice pudding balls and creme brulee were a fine finish. Our cocktails we had, were well crafted and smooth. I feel this is a good value that never disappoints, for a holiday that can be over priced and mediocre.

Great menu and food quality was excellent. Decor could be updated slightly. Service was good but not exceptional, ie. bread didn't come to the table until entrees served, water only upon asking, and did not offer fresh pepper. However, for the food, I think the prices are very good.

Food was delicious. The only downside was the restaurant apparently informed the couple sitting beside us that they needed the table for another reservation and hastened the couple’s departure from the restaurant.

This was the first time we were here. The service, our waitress and food was fantastic. Our waitress made it very special we were there celebrating 4 birthdays all of us turned 50. When they brought out the desserts we each had a candle. We have been childhood friends since we were 5.

We will definitely be back. The filet mignon melted in your mouth.

Thank you for making our girls night birthday dinner so very special.

I only rate the noise level as “high” because we were probably the problem! Our server was FANTASTIC. Knowing that it was a business dinner, she gave us PLENTY of time to chit chat without interrupting us to order food. The speed of the dinner was on point and made for a great experience for our first time guest.

I usually get the appetizers & one of their seasonal salads. The Spring rolls were terrific. We sat in the Loft area. It reminds me of a ski lodge. Gracious staff & lively crowd. Glad they expanded the parking area.

We were disappointed to be seated next to the bar area which was extremely noisy. It was only 5:30 and we had a reservation. My husband did not want to switch tables so I did not ask. I overheard another dinner, also being seated next to the bar, ask for another quieter table the hostess refused. The overall dinning experience was not what we had wanted and even though my husband and I enjoyed our lobster dinners my daughter did not enjoy her bland Caesar salad. Not sure if we will return.

Our sever Alison was Awesome. She was friendly, accommodating and professional. The food was good - appetizers were great, the ostrich was delicious, the short ribs weren’t quite to my liking- I didn’t care for the pomegranate jus with the beef and mushrooms. It just didn’t taste like the flavors blended well to me. The spinach and as good, the Brussels sprouts and the sweet potato bread pudding were excellent. The crispy garlic potato cake was bland, I didn’t taste much of the garlic and it actually needed salt which I never have to say at most restaurants. I have to say the lack of a heavy salt hand is my preference over the majority of restaurants that use salt as a major flavor component instead of just enhancement of flavor. We likely won’t return but it was a good experience overall.
