most of the food was way above average and thoroughly enjoyed by most of us. Waiters had good suggestions that were very helpful. We enjoyed a Nebbiolo, reasonably priced for its quality. Only down side was an off the menu item linguini a la Carbonara. there are many ways to prepare it but I prefer the classical, with Guanciale, pecorino, eggs and Pasta water. It was not so, good but too much cream. would not order again

We had not been to La Griglia for some time. The conversion of an outside walkway to an eating space works well and was much quieter than similar spaces next to traffic. We will be going back to La Griglia for their outstanding food and service.

Nice overall experience with some setbacks.
Bread was a little cold. And they got our main dish wrong but since it took a considerable time to arrive we decided to eat it without requesting a replace.

I had duck and my partner had chicken; both were slaughtered to death; bone dry. An over $200 bill and not one of the many wait staff who hover over you constantly trying to push up the bill, stopped to ask how our dinners were. This used to be a great restaurant, but it has lost its MOJO. Sadly, we will never return.

My husband wanted some veal. I looked at a few menus online. We had a dinner reservation only 2 miles away. We showed up and they didn’t have any veal on the menu. We paid for our drinks and left. We found veal on the menu at La Griglia. We were greeted by a friendly hostess. The team service was exceptional! Our water was topped off before it was half empty. Everyone was on point. Our dinner and dessert was prepared beautifully and was so delicious. Everything was served quickly. There was a presence of manager or owner walking around. He asked how we were doing and he even cleared some of our plates. This is the type of service every restaurant should provide for their guests. We will absolutely be returning again.

The food was outstanding! The service left a bit to be desired - our waiter was not very attentive, the host station is not at the front door which is weird so we stood there confused for a bit. The location is nice, the restaurant is beautiful, the wine selection is voluminous. In my opinion, its a bit of a crowded space for finer dining. I like the outdoor area and decor. Overall, you will absolutely not be disappointed.

We had a fantastic time here. Food was delicious! Wait staff was professional and worked as a team! Couldn’t have had a better night. Will be coming back to try more menu items. The scallops app was great and so was the wild boar. Tiramisu was also delicious.

The staff bend over backwards for you. Great prices on the happy hour menu. We tried the bottle of wine with bites, and I will skip that next time. It was a great deal but we didn’t care for the cheese or the meat. I’d rather have something a little more expensive with several nice Italian cheeses. This one had a lot of the same one one kind of cheese and it was not enjoyable, very salty. It would be an easy fix just to upgrade a cheese & meat board option.

The environment was friendly but it felt like the staff forgot about our table. We waited a long time, our waiter disappeared a lot and was tending more to other tables.

Other than the service, we had a plate of food we weren’t the most pleased they immediately exchanged it with no questions asked.

I recommend you try whatever special fish or dish is of the day. Order an espresso after dessert helps go down with delicious cookies.

After not eating at La Griglia in a year, we were overjoyed to meet friends (all vaccinated) and eat at La Griglia. As usual, service was impeccable. Stellar. Available in event of any need, but not intrusive or hovering. Food, as usual, was excellent.
Can't wait to be back again.
