Why was this place rated best restaurant in Houston??? Every dish was usually bad and occasionally acceptable. Signature seafood cheesecake was a weird combination of flavors and textures. Some may call it original or unique, but i'd leave it at weird , not in a good way. The fried artichoke was okay- a poor imitation of Da Marco- without the great sauce that DaMarco's has. The pizza crust was pretty good - but why not smear some tomato sauce under the cheese and make a real pizza for the prosciutto pizza. The gnocchi ragu was overall unpleasant. The sauce tasted like fresh from the can tomato paste with chunks of overcooked stew meat thrown in. The gelato was served so icy cold that I got brain freeze from the tiny scoops. Overall, save your money and go to real Italian restaurant like Da Marco. Only reason we tried this place was because we could not get reservations at Da Marco

La Griglia has always been in top form in my experience. We were delighted to learn that Restaurant Week had been extended so we took the opportunity to order our four course meal from that menu. Special mention should be made of the corn and lobster chowder and the Sky High Lemon Meringue pie. Everything was terrific, especially the service. Well done!

I did not think I liked meringue I was ready to slide it off and just eat the lemon die hiding underneath. That would have been am mistake, the meringue is AMAZING!

The staff were very helpful and we were able to change seats when requested
The food was okay, calamari tasteless and needed more salt and black pepper.
The red snapper was good, kids loved the chicken tenders and fries, spaghetti with meatballs.
Dessert: we had the key lime pie and coconut cream pie which were ok.
Main highlight was the complementary bread basket. I could go just for the bread.
Improvement opportunities
Spice your calamari and send out with a cream dip as well to give customers another option to the marinara dip
Send out your bread basket with Butter

We take our grandson to La Griglia and Grotto. They are his two favorites and Grandma and Grandpa get something other than wings or chicken fingers. We can all enjoy a great meal, with wonderful service in a lovely setting and our grandson is happy - a win win!

I have been to La Griglia a million times and they are always great. Unfortunately, I took 5 friends from out of town to experience Houston Restaurant Weeks and had the worst service experience I have ever had at La Griglia. I was embarrassed with my friends and know that it's not normal for this quality of a restaurant. So disappointed. The food was great but the experience was disappointing.

Went here for my daughter's birthday; I was impressed with the food quality and service. The shrimp and crab cheesecake was very good, and I really appreciated the bread selection. Everyone was following good social distancing and mask procedures, so I felt comfortable that my family was well taken care of.

We asked to sit outside; however, they had no fans going and it was on the 90s. Patrons cane in through a hidden fence and walked right by our table to get to the reservation desk inside. This should not have happened. I asked for the fans to be turned on.

Overall, it was a lovely dinner and great service!!

With this issue of the Covid, no additional security measures or social distance between the tables was seen. The restaurant was operating with at least 75% of its capacity, which seemed very risky.
