    Awful, slow service. Poor food quality and minimum food options and choices. I’ve definitely had better meals and experiences before.

    The new staff at The Grille are trying very hard to turn around this beautiful restaurant that has outstanding views of the Long Island Sound. Sunday night outside on the deck and only 3 or 4 tables occupied? Our service staff was young and inexperienced but eager to please and so very pleasant. With the backdrop of the Sound on a beautiful afternoon, its hard say that much is bad here. Our steaks were good but overpriced and needed some more time under the heat for medium rare. Calamari with banana peppers were outstanding and a must for the appetizer. Included sides were a nice change from charging extra for each add on. Truffle fries were delicious. Glasses of Wine and bottled beer was the way to go here. Hope this management can enhance and expand the menu, also with pricing that is in tune with the customer base.

    Unbelievable view of the LI sound. I feel like this place is a bit of a hidden gem! We really enjoyed the peaceful uncrowded dinner. Food was good (not great). But the ambiance more than made up did that. We’ll be back soon.

    Went for a date night. Ordered raw bar and was told they ran out. They should have told us that when we sat down before ordering. Salmon was over cooked. Server was just ok. Wasn’t worth the $200 meal.
    The Grille at WaterviewResponded on June 6, 2024
    Hello, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your disappointing experience on date night. Running out of items and not informing you upfront is unacceptable, and we apologize for that oversight.

Your comments are important to us, and we will address these issues with our team to ensure better communication and food quality. We hope you'll consider giving us another chance to provide a more enjoyable experience.

    We had a 1 hour wait time even with a reservation. Had to remind the host we were even there. No apology for the long wait. Only 6 or 7 tables filled in the entire restaurant. The waitress was wonderful but overworked so we were left unattended for a very long time and had to ask for a refill on our drinks. Very understaffed which damaged the entire experience. Asked for steak medium rare, and after a hour waiting for dinner with empty drinks, the steak came out well done. Manager did nothing to fix the situation. They knew it was our anniversary and did nothing to make the experience memorable. Terrible experience especially for the price. Definitely would not recommend.
    The Grille at WaterviewResponded on June 6, 2024
    Thank you for your feedback. We're deeply sorry for the disappointing experience you had on your anniversary. Long wait times, even with a reservation, and lack of acknowledgment from the host are unacceptable, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We regret that our staffing issues impacted your experience, and that your steak was not cooked to your liking. It’s disappointing to hear that our manager did not address these concerns properly. We understand how special occasions should be memorable for the right reasons, and we fell short. Your feedback will be used to improve our service. We hope you might consider giving us another chance in the future.

    We were literally the only table seated inside . All other patrons were at outside tables. We chose to sit inside. It was clear that the restaurant was understaffed And poorly managed. The food was so slowly served and not special. It’s really as shame with such a beautiful location it just doesn’t work as a restaurant. Would love to have a good meal with attentive service

    This restaurant is beautiful. Sitting outside looking out on the sound is probably the best thing about this place. The bar tender really doesn’t know how to make a drink. Food was decent but the service was not good. Had a 7:30 reservation and had to wait a half hour to be seated. Very small menu.

    The food was horrible!!!its such a shame the view is so beautiful it’s prime restate. When my husband and I walked in the place was empty we should have known then. We order seafood tier for two it was such a disappointment. Especially when the clams on the half shell were brown and had an odor. The ribeye was 1/2 in cut and so over cooked. We order medium rare. It was brown. It’s such a shame the place really needs a chef!! They need  Gordon Ramsay!!! Please save this place!!
    The Grille at WaterviewResponded on May 31, 2024
    Thank you for your candid feedback. We're truly sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with the food. This is certainly not the quality we strive to provide. We understand your concerns about the seafood and the ribeye, and we apologize for the unacceptable quality and preparation. Your comments are being taken very seriously, and we will be addressing these issues with our kitchen team immediately. We appreciate your kind words about the view and understand the potential our location has. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we hope you might consider giving us another chance in the future.
