Loud, very disorganized service, subpar food, lousy salads….
No masks with COVID still in the air.
Been going there for years …..and we are sadly DONE. Thanks , no thanks T.Fertita, you have finally ruined another fabulous Houston establishment with your chronic need for greed.

We had two of the specials; Pecan Crusted Chicken and Mahi Mahi. Both were excellent. We also had Veal and Short Ribs, again they were excellent. The wait staff was very attentive but allowed us to enjoy our meal and did not rush us. My out of town guests really enjoyed everything and thanked us to sharing La Griglia with them.

My husband and I were visiting from Seattle and this is my favorite Italian place in Houston and my husband agrees. The servers were very attentive and constantly refilled our glasses and promptly came to our table whenever we looked up and had any questions. The food was as delicious as I remember. I had the fruitta de mare and my husband had the lobster pasta and loved every bite. We both will come here again the next time we're in town. :)

I have been to La Griglia a few times for business and took my wife recently after returning from a trip. We enjoyed sitting outdoors by the water feature on a mild night. For starters we had the lobster bisque (more fishy than creamy which we like, but different from the Mew England lobster bisque) and the roasted tomato soup which was great. For entrees we chose the pasta vongole (it usually comes with tagliatelle but my wife prefers penne which was no problem - thanks) with real clams and the short rib agnolotti. Both dishes were very good, however, I had better agnolotti before. I like the place as the service and the food is consistently good. Not my highest rated place but a restaurant where you know what to expect and thus always worth returning.

I picked this place because of the food reviews. It was loud and crowded which I didn't mind but the food was not worth the money. The rigatoni plate tasted like it was reheated food and over cooked. The risotto in my salmon dish rice was undercooked and didn't look like risotto at all. I expected more from a restaurant in River Oaks.

Honestly one of the most phenomenal dining experiences. The service was truly unbeatable. Our glasses remained full and they did not miss a single beat. At any time throughout the evening there were a minimum of 2 waiters serving us our drinks/appetizers and entrees. The food was delicious!!

Food was excellent. Always consistent. The service was lacking slightly, but I believe they may have been understaffed, as most are right now. Still pretty good service, just not great.

A longtime friend and I met for our annual Christmas lunch. As soon as we opened the door, we were nearly knocked over by the noise. Why ever would you play loud “music” over which the diners had to scream in order to converse? I had to shout at my companion and to the waiter - a thoroughly miserable experience.
