The only condition I don’t like is you have to ask the waiters for a menu. The won’t automatically bring you one

Service started a bit “slow” due to being overwhelmed. However, it improved and food quality was very good. Would recommend without hesitation.

Lovely dinner! The black pepper yellowfin tuna was seared to perfection. I highly recommend substituting mashed potatoes for the quinoa.

I was disappointed with the salmon menu dish. The risotto was not tasty at all. The salmon was a little dry. I would not order again.

Salmon/ risotto was cold when it was served to the table. Waiter couldn’t explain a particular menu item after asking twice, and drink order was forgotten.

Friends ordered short rib and they said it was very good. Dessert selection was excellent.

Ambiance was nice.

Wanted to take my fiance somewhere nice for Valentine's Day, and found this place online. The food, was better than we expected, however our server didn't really the experience all well for us. He was eager to up-sale, but not very tentative. I made no big deal of it, but my fiance did bring it to my attention that she felt that our waiter was rushing her to order her food. I know it's an upscale restaurant, and I understand how busy it can get on Valentine's Day, but the worst feeling is being treated like you don't belong there.

We were here because it is across the street from the Landmark theater and we were going to a movie after dinner. We had both a great dinner and a great movie - Citizen K. Service was prompt and attentive and the food was served hot and tasty. I had the Italian sausage and Peppers pizza, and that could have had a lot more Italian sausage on it, though.

Every time we visit la Griglia, my wife will go home feeling extremely satisfied with the food and the service because neither have ever disappointed us and instead it exceeds our expectations every time.
Rich, the GM, and his crew have it down to the T and that is gained when you learn about your business, your customers and your own employees. Having that maturity and experience on your staff makes La Griglia to work like a clock.
If it was not so far from our home, I would visit it more often.

Very good food overall. Not much options for a vegetarian. Excellent service. Very loud noise level - not good for intimate conversations, but you should expect that where the food is good.

It’s 10 yrs since we have been and now it will be another 10 before we go again.
Ambiance and staff are the same but the food .......!!!!!
Very poor, soggy pizza and pasta. We noticed other tables not eating or returning their dishes.
It needs a real upgrade.

Always the best service in town. I like that they let me order entrees that are not on the current menu...and the food is consistently perfect.

We have not been back in five years and it was like we never left. Everything was so good, food, service, atmosphere. We had such a good experience. Try beef medallions for an outstanding meal.

We started at the bar for Happy Hour. The wine was inexpensive there. Our table was situated well, not to close to other diners. Our waiters was great. The food was delicious and timed appropriately.

Location is great as well as the food. Very professional wait staff. The way the tables are set up the noise level can be quite loud when busy.
