    We had a large party and none of the steaks were cooked correctly, they were either well or rare. Medium was not an option.

    Had a great time visiting The Grill, would definitely recommend and return. Jocelyn, our server, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the Mixed Grill and while it was a lot of food it wasn’t too much (my husband and I were hungry and have good appetites anyway). It was excellent. I would order it again. Everything was so tasty, from the different appetizers to the perfectly grilled shrimp and steak and the crab cake. Dessert was delicious too.

    We returned here again this year and were not disappointed. The apps and mains are delicious as well. Steaks cooked to perfection on the Josper Grill. A must try when in DC.

    We had a wonderful meal. Outstanding food, cocktails, and impeccable service. We were also impressed that the portion sizes were surprisingly robust. Will gladly go again soon.

    Very nice place. Had great seafood pasta and a lobster roll. Little pricey and didn’t have any sides, but the entrees were very good and there was a huge cocktail, beer, wine list. Beautiful place with a nice view and excellent service. Sat outside in an enclosed heated area.

    Service is great, food is mediocre, ambience is very loud. Overall we would go again but it’s certainly not first on our list. 3.5 stars out of 5
