I don’t write a lot of reviews but the food and service here were so good I wanted to share. We got two appetizers, two entrees, 3 cocktails, one side and one order of bread and I have to say it was the rare experience where every single thing we ordered was delicious. And the waiter provided excellent recommendations in addition to answering several questions. I know Rasika gets all the attention, but the food here was just as good and in some cases even better!

Food was very good. Spice level was authentic. We were greeting courteously and seated. Since we had a kid in a stroller we were given a table right next to the server’s kiosk which did not have the expected appealing ambience . The server assigned to us that day was a turn off. Did not want to give us time and did not ask if we wanted dessert. After we ordered dessert before we finished he got us the check and kept it on the table. We wanted some tea after dessert. This was a put off. Else loved the place for its food.

Delicious & mouth watering!

Impressed with the customer service. Thanks Punjab Grill Team!!

Would love to see more vegetarian options in main course meals.
Baigan Bharta, it was tasty but could have had more smoky taste to it.
Overall, loved the food!

The service was poor. We had to wait 15 mins after being seated for someone to come to our table to ask for drinks and such. My wife asked for a straw and it took them almost 10 mins to get one to her. The food was amazing but the service ruined the celebration for my wife’s b’day. I complained early on to the manager and they did give us a complimentary dish. That was nice of them. But during the pandemic the value is not there. The upscale dining experience was missing.

Oh my word! What a dining experience AGAIN! Punjab Grill never ever disappoints. We changed up our usual dishes to try the new spring menu items and they were all outstanding. Hats off to the chef!!! Wow!! Goat Pepper Fry, the asparagus, Morrell mushroom pate, ribeye and the scallops were out of this world. And as always, the service is impeccable. Devin behind the bar is so creative with cocktails that wow your senses. Please please please do yourself a favor and come enjoy this restaurant. It should get a Michelin star it’s that good.

The food was good but completely overshadowed by the horrendous service. We ordered one appetizer and two entrees and the whole thing took 2 hours, most of it spent waiting for the waiter. I would strongly encouraged anyone interested in this restaurant to dine elsewhere.

We've come to Punjab Grill twice now and both times the experience was great. Menu options are extremely creative and off the beaten path. Very unique versions of traditional punjab dishes, something my wife and I appreciate very much. I give this place 5 stars for service, quality of food and ambiance. Great all around date spot for that special someone.
