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!

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.

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.

Lunch
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.

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.

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.

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.
