The drinks were small and expensive.
The Greek salad was an insult to Greeks.
The flatbread pizza was made on a cracker and was soggy and had no flavor.
Steamed veggies were cold.
We had high hopes for this resturant but we will not be returning

Our breakfast was so delicious! I had the best Vegetable Omelette that I’ve ever had. The veggies were chopped so small, and it was packed full of veggies. We will definitely return for breakfast and dinner again.

An inviting contemporary decor.
Menu is limited for dinner and overpriced . Alcoholic drinks are also pricey.
Service was sporadic even though the restaurant wasn't busy.
Disappointed.

Very disappointed. After making the reservation on Open Table, I checked the restaurant’s website twice this week. There was no indication that today would be brunch only because it’s Mother’s Day (no regular menu); $30 per adult. If it’s a special menu, that needs to be clearly noted. To make things worse, our server was not good, even though he only had a few tables. Some of the food was good; other items were very fatty. Was looking forward to trying a new place and ended up with a bad experience on an important day.

We were there for Mother's Day Brunch. Waitstaff took a while to greet us and did not explain off buffet items until after we went through buffet. Hot items on buffet were not hot and selection was meager

Our group had several very good sandwiches (chicken, prime rib, burger, and reuben). The staff is attentive and the location convenient. Would recommend for lunch and casual dinners.

Dinner on a Friday night. Not very crowded. Server was inexperienced and came back three times to ask questions which she should have covered when taking order. At least she asked rather than get it wrong.

The food was good but certainly not special in any way. Started with Caesar salad which was tasty and good sized. Party had salmon and ribs. Salmon was well cooked but came with an undisclosed sauce which was not within diet. Also the vegetable was described as mixed vegetables when it was only squash. The ribs were chewy and stringy, not among the better ribs we have had. Lastly, although some nice wines on list slightly over priced. Will try again as we live in Lake Bluff and hope it improves.

Salmon plank and lobster bisque soup were great. Chicken parm was only okay as the breading seemed to have picked up an oil flavor. I needed to ask for more blue cheese and dressing for my wedge because it was dry. Didn't serve fresh parmesian cheese with the chicken parm until requested. TVs everywhere detracts from the ambiance for me. Overall okay, but not up to my expectations.

The service was terrible. French onion soup was delicious. Quesadillas were not good. There were three other people in my party ordering fish tacos, patty melt, and an Asian salad. All said theirs was “fine.”

We really want this restaurant to succeed because Grille 43 has been a regular spot of ours before. Honestly the fish tacos didn’t present well at all, taste was just ok. The waiter was sweet and honest in his inexperience, which I totally appreciate honesty. We’re hoping this was just an off night and they will get into a rhythm, we will give it one more shot.
