We did the outdoor seating. We ordered the salad and the grilled fish/spinach/shrimp.
the food was delicious. The service was great. We were able to dine outside in this covid environment and had a great time. LaGrilga is our go restaurant due to the very nice outdoor seating and great food and service.

Omg the mushroom lasagna was AMAZING. We had like ten waiters, and they were amazing. Our food was served literally in less then 10 minutes after ordering, creepily fast. We were starving so that was perfect for us! We will be back!

Why was this place rated best restaurant in Houston??? Every dish was usually bad and occasionally acceptable. Signature seafood cheesecake was a weird combination of flavors and textures. Some may call it original or unique, but i'd leave it at weird , not in a good way. The fried artichoke was okay- a poor imitation of Da Marco- without the great sauce that DaMarco's has. The pizza crust was pretty good - but why not smear some tomato sauce under the cheese and make a real pizza for the prosciutto pizza. The gnocchi ragu was overall unpleasant. The sauce tasted like fresh from the can tomato paste with chunks of overcooked stew meat thrown in. The gelato was served so icy cold that I got brain freeze from the tiny scoops. Overall, save your money and go to real Italian restaurant like Da Marco. Only reason we tried this place was because we could not get reservations at Da Marco

La Griglia has always been in top form in my experience. We were delighted to learn that Restaurant Week had been extended so we took the opportunity to order our four course meal from that menu. Special mention should be made of the corn and lobster chowder and the Sky High Lemon Meringue pie. Everything was terrific, especially the service. Well done!

I did not think I liked meringue I was ready to slide it off and just eat the lemon die hiding underneath. That would have been am mistake, the meringue is AMAZING!

The staff were very helpful and we were able to change seats when requested
The food was okay, calamari tasteless and needed more salt and black pepper.
The red snapper was good, kids loved the chicken tenders and fries, spaghetti with meatballs.
Dessert: we had the key lime pie and coconut cream pie which were ok.
Main highlight was the complementary bread basket. I could go just for the bread.
Improvement opportunities
Spice your calamari and send out with a cream dip as well to give customers another option to the marinara dip
Send out your bread basket with Butter
