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.

La Grig always knocks it out of the park for Restaurant Week and this year was no different. The sweet potato gnocchi appetizer was superb as was the beet salad. Entrees were also delicious. Seafood rav was marvelous. So was the grilled salmon. But the best was the bread pudding dessert.
Fernando was attentive and professional throughout our meal

We enjoyed a family dinner here with our parents and two-year-old. They were very kind and patient with our kid. The food is really good. Some standouts: squash risotto and the gnocchi alla ragu.

We love the martinis here! It was very unusual when we were served our standard drink in a warm glass! We brought it to the attention of the waiter, it was quickly corrected

We had not been here before. It was a Wednesday evening, our reservation was for 6:30. We were seated promptly, service was great and attentive. Food was good. We had some red wine, good wine, reasonably priced. Selection of desserts was good - we had a chocolate cake - it was good.

Like I rated them. Their good is excellent . The service was not good. They seemed to have more busboys and water servers then waiters. The waiters all seemed confused running around like crazy people and not paying attention to any other tables except when you first arrive.

Good cocktails, always great food...one issue at the beginning of our dinner did put a bit of a damper on things though. A table of 6, 4 of which were our guests who’d NEVER been to La G previously, were required to view ONE cocktail list to order drinks! When asked if we could have at least another we were told there was a full bar and could order whatever we liked.....NOT the response I was looking for and THAT was unacceptable, imo. I did, a bit later, express my discontent with our actual waiter and he tried to make up for it, but for me hosting these guests...it loomed over my dinner. FIRST impressions DO prevail...I assured them it was NOT the norm....🙁

Food was amazing. The front desk should be moved to directly in front of the door and not to the corner. Our server was ok but I felt like he rushed us a little at the end of our meal.

We went to La Griglia for our anniversary. They treated us very well with excellent service and terrific food. The only possible complaint was from my wife that the shrimp were not de-veined. This is a turn off for her.

We had a group of 10 celebrating a birthday. As always LaGriglia’s provides for a wonderful dining experience . Also, I believe LaGriglia’s provides the best up scale table service in Houston, by far.

We often forget about La Griglia becuase it is easy to miss as part of a shopping center. But my recent experience has put them on my restaurant list. The personnel was highly helpful and friendly. The food was tasteful and well presented. From the table side bread to the chocolate cake they have on their dessert menu. I am looking forward to my next experience. The Chicken Parmagiana was excellent!
