La Griglia - Houston Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful atmosphere. Very vibrant and upbeat without the feeling of being rushed. The service was impeccable from start to finish. The food, was just as outstanding as the service. The seared diver's scallops with asparagus risotto were melt in your mouth good and a great start to our meal! We will definitely be coming back and highly recommend this restaurant.
Food and service was fantastic but tables are so close together I had a man at the table behind me pretty much sitting in my lap which made dinner a bit awkward and not very private; if we had 4 people with us at our 4 top they would not have been able to fit at the table. Have always loved la griglias food and like I said the service was impeccable
We really enjoyed the food here and the service was great. However, the atmosphere was so loud it was difficult to hear the waiter or to have a conversation at the table. Maybe it was just the Saturday night crowd but I was hoping for something a bit more low key.
For this place to be a more upscale ($$$) restaurant I did not appreciate the $0.45 charge for taking our dessert to go. I have never seen a place charge for packing up food before and this just seems like a cheap fee. I thought this place would be better than to resort to these types of tricks.
Also when I tried to get some change at the bar to tip the valet I was given back 2 $10. That did not help solve my problem and I would expect the bar tender to know better.
Had a hair in my food and alerted the manager. Recd the food with no apology. He asked if he could get me another drink and I said only if he’s buying which he laughed at. I thought that would have been a nice gesture considering...
Master waiter just dumped the dessert tray on our table.
Than brought the check which we were charged for my dish twice. They took 1 off with no comp or discount on my meal.
This is a very popular restaurant. It is lively and noisy. Staff is very friendly, service is relaxed. The food is basic Italian - I suggest sticking to things like paste and pizza. The brick chicken was interesting, Beef Morty is hammered flat - not my favorite, and the duck was acceptable. Price is reasonable. A reasonable choice if you are looking for a quick meal in a lively setting.
Enjoyed a great meal with friends for my birthday. La Griglia is one of my favorites! This time was not much different with the exception of the noise level in the main dining area and a little bit of the over-eagerness of the waiter. Won't stop me from returning though! Great food!
Everything was very good. I requested, when I made the reservation, a quiet table as my wife is hearing impaired. We were seated in the middle of the dining room where the noise volume was extremely high. I needed to raise my voice for my wife to hear me, and she was wearing her hearing aids.
We will go back, hopefully next time it will be in a quieter location.
We love La Griglia. It is out “go To” when we need terrific food without a wait. We are SO glad to see that Craig is back! Every bit of service is outstanding. The manager always “manages” to say hello even when he is crazy busy. The pizza is fantastic and the desserts are the best in town.
