We had a reservation at 8:00 and were not seated until 8:45 and were only seated then because we complained when we noticed people that arrived after us without a reservation were seated. The food was also subpar very disappointing.

What a wonderful dining experience! We had our daughter's 21st birthday dinner at La Griglia and it could not have been more pleasant. We made a reservation and showed up 10 minutes early; we were seated right away. Our waiter was very accommodating and knowledgeable about all the dishes. We had the Main Lobster Bisque and Caesar Salad for starters, the Duck Confit Ravioli, Grilled Atlantic Salmon, and Baja Striped Bass for the main course and for dessert the, Chocolate cake and Key Lime Pie. Everything was delicious! The waiter was observant enough to return before the wine glasses were too low to offer a refill. The water glasses stayed full and while the waiter was attentive he was never a "pest". They needed no reminder about the Reservation Note indicating that it was my daughter's 21st birthday and brought out the cake promptly after the dinner plates were cleared. The waiter kindly asked if we would like him to take a picture of us together, which was so thoughtful. At a little more than $200.00, the meal and experience were remarkable. My daughter was delighted and has a wonderful memory for her birthday! Not only will we be back but we may make this a regular spot for our celebrations!

The service was terrible. Extremely slow and not attentive.

The drinks were terrible. The Ameretto Sour was so bad We sent it back and go a wine thinking if they could not make a drink as simple as a Ameretto. Why try something else.

We ordered an OLD FASHION also it was bad but drinkable.

We will not go back. The restuarant was one of our go to places. This is the second bad experience in 6 months.

As usual the food and service very good. However this time I had severe stomach upset afterwards, started at 4am after dinner at 7pm. I ate nothing further after I left so assume it was caused by something I ate at La Grigla. Never had this problem before at this restaurant. so hoping a "one off" every meal eaten there previously was fantastic with no problems. Lovely place, excellent ambiance.

I had the absolute worst experience at La Griglia on 3/25/18. Having been a customer there for 20+ years, I was shocked by the below par, last waiter, poor service, cold food.
I couldn’t understand how the “experienced” waiter could make so many mistakes, continuously forget to monitor our 8 top for table setups, water and water refills, and bread.
The food took close to an hour to be served on a slow Sunday night. When it arrived it was cold.

When the $400+ bill came, for the 8 guests, I realized that bc he added gratuity to our bill, he must not have felt any sense of accountability. We pointed out mistakes and he acted clueless.

I was so frustrated and even emailed Landry’s corporate about this unusual and terrible experience. Much to my shock, no response.

So long La Griglia & Landry’s restaurants...shame on you for thinking that your restaurants and waiters can take such advantage of their customers and get away with it.

Never again!!! I would never recommend or step foot into La Griglia again. There was no sign of a manager and we never had one stop by to check on our meal (normalcy). But even more disturbing was that the manager never came to our table after we identified we were having such poor service and a bad waiter.

Tillman, I think you should go eat there sometime. You would be dissatisfied with the experience and embarrassed that you are affiliated with such a place.

Usually LaGriglia serves a reasonable meal, but our party of 6 was quite disappointed. Food was quite mediocre and the noise level made conversation almost impossible. Service was excellent, though. Still, there are better places to eat in this price range.

I had not been to La Griglia in a long time and I can't wait to return. They have a lovely patio and this was a wonderful cool evening with a pretty sunset. Great start, right? It all continued. We both started with the Texas Manhattan cocktail and I will name that one of the best cocktails ever! Ever. Fabulous. I started with the Grotto salad and then had the Grilled Atlantic Salmon, which I also proclaim as one of the best things I have ever had. I will do a complete repeat. My husband started with a lentil soup of the day, and had the Paglia e Fieno and loved it also. We were very happy we chose La Griglia that night!

our reservations at 16:00 Hours today with "OpenTable", we all arrived
at La Griglia today at approximately 4 PM, to experience a substandard and unprofessional dining experience.
Our waiter, Menno, did not come back to check if we needed or wanted additional bread sticks, drinks, wine, etc.
We only saw Menno once after we ordered, I actually had to raise my arms to get staff's attention to visit our table.
I asked for you, but I was told you were in and out of the restaurant. I had to get a barback's attention to reorder
wine and martinis... In addition, I asked for the manager, and "he was out" !!!!!!

I was never asked if I was a member of Landry's Premium Select Club member, I was never asked if I wanted
to present my membership card after the final bill, no manager visited our table to acknowledge Landry's Club
membership.

OVERCHARGED ME AND HAS NOT MADE IT RIGHT! According to manager the computer “assumes” a tip and adds it to my total. I always pay CASH for my tip. The OVERCHARGE was $17.00. Very dishonest group!! My signed customer copy that authorized payment is $17.00 less than what cleared my bank. I’m reporting this fraudulent practice to the BBB. Food was great.
