La Griglia has always been consistently great. The food is impeccable and I was glad to see new bar staff that are more open to experiment with cocktails. I will be back more often.

Always a treat to go to LaGriglia—we are from out of town. We were here five years ago and it is still just as terrific.

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.

As always, La Griglia was amazing. Actually arrived with my date early and even though they were booked they found us a nice place by the fireplace. Both the meal and the evening were a success. 😊

Been going here for years....New Year's Eve we call to verify they would have a filet on the menu....They ran out. Really, waiter was terrible, totally uninterested in us. This was our last visit. Actually it will be our last visit to any T. Fertita restaurant. This year we had bad food at The Grotto on Westminster, Willi G's Galveston and now La Griglias.

La Griglia is a bit far from our house but after several years of not making over there we decided to go during the Holidays. Nothing had changed one bit, except perhaps some decor refreshing. The atmosphere was inviting as soon as you walked in the door. The wait staff attentive but not bothersome. The food was still fresh and delicious with the presentation being first rate. This particular evening I enjoyed the veal osso buco which was among the best I've had in Houston. It was tender, not fatty and came bone-in with delicious marrow. Others at the table enjoyed their meals equally as well. We had one Vegan and the kitchen staff prepared a special entree for him that he was well pleased with. It won't be so long before we revisit La Griglia again.

One of the best restaurants in Houston. The atmosphere is always relaxed, joyous, and inviting. The food is delicious, with many choices, ever changing specials, and requests are accommodated. We had a great, friendly waiter named David at the West Grey Houston location. He helped make our Christmas Eve visit with family very memorable. It is our go to restaurant for a casual Friday night meal, or a special occasion.

Although I received a confirmation text the day before our reservation, our reservation did not show on their books when we arrived.
They were very gracious and seated us right away anyway even though it was a very busy day.

Great experience at La Griglia. We were greeted with a smile, sat at our reserved time, wait and bus staff were attentive, quick, and helpful. Food was served hot, in a timely manner, and was well prepared, presented, and delicious.
I recommend this restaurant.

Grand dame of west Gray. Still a hap’n place. Good value. Friendly staff they work hard and share service duties. Managers were bussing tables and adding soap in the BR. These guys care and it shows. 5/6 meals were delish...plates scraped clean ... on meal #6 I thought the mahi-mahi special bore a strong resemblance to redfish or drum .... but it was excellent. Still great.

Wait staff were very overworked and tired. It was difficult to get timely service. Drinks ordered at the bar never showed up, at least until we got the bill. Water was dripping from a vent in the ceiling on one of our party and the wait staff seemed unsure about whether they could move us. We had to force the issue a bit to move tables. When the food finally did arrive, it was excellent, but the evening was marred by the earlier events. I think that the holidays may just be a bad time to go.

Worst experience at a restaurant we’ve loved for years. Three out of our four entrees were not acceptable and a very inattentive waiter. Sorry to complain but everything was wrong that night. The manager, however did do what he could to apologize. He was very nice and comped a few dishes.

Great food and great service! A little pricey for what you get and the drinks are very pricey. It’s loud too. I recommend it though...we love it. The ONE thing I absolutely do not like is some dishes are spicy and Italian food should not be spicy! I’m not going to eat Mexican good...I go to eat Italian! My only complaint!! Other than that I highly recommend!!

I went there for an early birthday celebration with my close friends on Saturday and it was awesome! I’ve been many times with family and it never disappoints. The service is great and quick! My friends loved the food. Super good quality and priced very fairly.

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.
