First time back after several years. Food was great, as was the wine list. Our waiter, David, was appropriately attentive. Offered good food suggestions.

Enjoyable evening! Celebrated a birthday. Great spot to enjoy a simple glass of wine or a multi course meal. The bar area is great and outdoor seating by the firepit make it fun even in our brisk winter nights.

Food a bit bland
One waiter was excellent but another one was just not very friendly at any point

David, our server was outstanding and food was delish. Henry also was fantastic. Even on a very busy night, our party of 6 was well taken care of - one of our go-to dependable spots where we can enjoy friends and family.

This was our first visit to La Griglia and we were very impressed! The menu was diverse with a great variety of selections, especially fish which is one of our favorites. The food was exceptional and we enjoyed all the selections we made. Service was prompt, friendly and professional. In summary we found La Griglia to be one of the best restaurants we have been to in Houston and for the price and cuisine it can't be beat. We will be back!

We always enjoy this restaurant- it feels like a very ice neighborhood Italian spot. You can sit outside or in. The veal is very good and reasonably priced as is the short rib.

The caprese salad was not up to La Griglia standards. My wife loved her meal, I was not as pleaed. They need a good bolognase pasta dish on their menu.

The food is heavy and heavy handed - but is good value for portion size. The best part about it is the flatbread pizza in the bread basket at the beginning. It is also like an icebox in there - so cold.

The food was okay, nothing special. In fact, I ordered something totally different from my friend but yet when they brought the food, the food dishes looked identical :(

Also, many things have mushrooms, for which I have an allergy, then things that didn't have mushrooms had shellfish which my friend is very allergic to.

The restaurant décor was unusual and beautiful, but what ruined it was when another patron came in with they medium sized dog and dogbed to be placed in the middle of the restaurant. It was not a service or handicapped dog, but just a pet. Very disappointing.
