We were seated in The Loft.
At first a disappointment due to the noise level.
However, as tables were served their food the noise leveled out & we were able to have a conversation.
Alison Z. was our server & she was amazing!
She made several recommendations from specialty cocktails to entrees & even to the dessert we didn’t plan on having, but ate every bite!
Her service was impeccable & her smile contagious.
We will request her on our return!
For the 1st time the dinner was just average
Loved everything about this place. The tuna entree is some of the best tuna steak I’ve ever had and tuna is my favorite thing to order. And then the espresso creme brûlée... just order it.
I wouldn’t recommend this place for young families but business dinners, date night and girls night out, definitely.
We've been patronizing 3501 since it was opened and have appreciated the growth of the establishment over time. Service is always excellent, and the food is impressive with foody gems scattered throughout. There is a good selection of quality beverages. During peak happy hour on busy days parking can be a challenge. The place is loud, especially the newer loft bar area, so if you're booking a dinner you may want to select the old side, which is quieter. It is close enough to Tilgman8 for dinner and a movie.
They were very attentive to allergies
Duck is amazing. Ostrich steak equally awesome. Espresso creme brûlée is to die for.
Wonderful meal and service
This was our first time dining here and we will be back. The food was delicious and they had a very friendly staff. The lobster was amazing!
I went to the loft with my husband and son. I enjoy the cocktails and to me this and dessert is the best part of the meal. We had lamb app with was quiet good and my son had the children’s burger which was very good
On a whim, we tried Grille 3501. The service great, and the food was amazing. I had the lamb tenderloin appitizer and duck entree....both were seasoned and cooked to perfection
We had a great dinner at Grille 3501. Service was excellent as well!
Excellent meal. I had the tuna and my husband had the prime rib. For desert we had the apple crisp rice pudding and it was outstanding. Everything was flavored and cooked perfectly
We had a very nice dining experience. The food was very good. I liked that it was quiet and I was able to have a nice conversation.
When I have business associates in town and want to impress I take them to Grille 3501. This was no different - the ambiance is great, the wine list a little limited in Italian wines, but the food was great and the service was impeccable.
We had the ostrich and ribeye - both were fabulous. Dessert was also great.
Will recommend and will come back again.
We had our first bad experience, this has always been my go to restaurant for consistency.
Not on this occasion. There was a total melt down in the kitchen. Service staff were actually hiding from customers. We were waiting over an hour and finally spoke with the manager who acknowledged a problem in the kitchen.
She ended up giving us our entire meal and drinks for free, hence the 5 stars on value.
We will wait for some time before going back. Not sure what happened but hope they fix it.
My son and I had a nice time. The martini’s were perfect along with the appetizers. I had the salmon and my son had the filet, which was very very good. The desserts were out of this world along with the after dinner drinks. 3501 rates 5 stars. Every server was wonderful.
Had the Filet Mignon which was great, but the accompanying mashed potatoes were a big disappointment ( one step above instant mashed potatoes). Service was very good.
Overall = AMAZING... had the "signature" 3501 beer, Mango/Shrimp Spring Rolls, Lobster Ravioli, and we both had the lobster tail with garlic potato cake entree. We were seated in the upstairs loft of the "loft" area - great visual ambiance, but so loud that we had to lean in to talk to each other at a small 2-person table (it was the second to last day of the Masters). Unfortunately, too pricy for us for a regular spot, but worth every penny for special occasions.
I must say, we were disappointed this visit. We were seated in the loft area close to the bar. When we first arrived, there was a cold draft that made it very uncomfortable. After other patrons were seated closer to the outside, the heaters were turned on. Only then did we feel warmer. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable about the food choices. It just seemed that our food came out too quickly and that we were rushed. The soup was delicious, but the filet mignon was a bit tough. The veal was just ok. We decided not to try the dessert.
Great food. Great Service. Cant believe Allentown has this gem!
Great restaurant close to home. Food is always delicious and there are some creative dishes like ostrich on the menu. The lobster soup was really good and the drinks are good too.
Get the halibut special. It’s awesomely good!
We have started meeting friends there once a month for lunch. It is always a comfortable, cozy dining experience and the food is fantastic.
The food was very good, fresh, creative. Service was very good also. Very small venue, os make reservations!
Good food, good service and a fun atmosphere. The outdoor seating area can be a little loud when it is enclosed on cooler evenings. Vegetarian option was creative, but it was just listed on the menu as a veg option. I had to ask the server to find out what the option was.
Had a great evening with friends. Good service, food was beautifully plated and tasted wonderful. Very nice atmosphere.
Best spot for fine dining...excellent food with a nice presentation.
Food and service were excellent . A great place to get together with friends.
I was in town for business and was blown away by the food here. The best thing I had was the Ostrich steak, one of the more enjoyable plates of food I've had in months. Just a great dish. The crab/mango rolls & goat cheese/spiced pecan salad were both delicious as well. Definite gem of a restaurant in Allentown.
Service was lovely. Food was good. And we were not hurried.
I love this Restaurant. The service and The ability to change for
My needs is always accompanied. I love the loft. Great open space.
Everything was fine except one steak was over cooked. Food was presented very nice & other meals were very good
This was our second time at a Grille 3501 and it was great again. The food was excellent and the service is top notch. We all enjoyed our meals tremendously. The wine list is excellent. They are more than willing to adjust the food to meet individual tastes
We will be back,
Hands down. Best restaurant in the area
The restaurant was very attentive to the sever food allergies and was extremely concerned and pleasant in the research. and modification of the entrée.
We have eaten here several times since the college semester started at Muhlenberg. Great every time!
I have eaten here multiple times, and every time is the same. Excellent food and excellent service.
Long time resident looking for culinary enlightenment, very friendly staff, setting was good.
The appetizer came out and part was not ready to be served, we appreciate that they served more apps to correct. Then the meals came out and 3 out of 4 meals was perfect. Most delicious. It was not a good night they had staff walk out but handled well. On a good night we would love to be there.
Sarah did a great job taking care of our every need!
