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.

The food is mediocre. The service was not good. There are so many other, better Italian restaurants, but La Griglia always seems to be busy. Location, Location, Location. But, my last visit there.

They could serve coffee and desert at the same time to gain more sweet eaters.

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.

Love the food, love the service cannot stand the noise. I want to visit with my company not scream - this is exhausting and ruins the eve. Will only eat there late at night when crowds die down or can eat outside.
