    The Grant Grill is easily one of the finest restaurants in California. The service is perfect -attentive but not overbearing. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant. And, the best: the food is to die for. Samuel and Sara, our servers, get an A+. We will return

    Our server, Jose, was one of the most attentive and charming people with whom we have ever had the pleasure of dining. He went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary celebration was truly special. It’s so delightful when a server does everything you might like to have done, without you even having to think of asking for it… Just perfect and intuitive. The cocktails were great and the food was fabulous. Probably the best avocado toast we’ve ever had, and definitely the best quiche ever (sorry, entire country of France, The Grant has you beaten!). We will definitely come back for dinner, and we’re looking into bringing a group. Fabulous experience, and we cannot recommend this place highly enough. We loved it!!!

    Grant Grill was recommended to us by a friend who considers this her favorite restaurant in San Diego and I can see why. This is one of the best managed restaurants that I have ever been to. We had Jose for our waiter and he gets a 10 out of 10 rating. I would highly suggest you try to get him. The food, service ambiance, and value are all there. We will definitely go back soon.

    Food and service was impeccable. Enjoyed our dinner very much with a bottle of wine. Its always a special treat to have dinner there. Wanted to enjoy my dessert with coffee after dinner but the obnoxious table next to us ruined the atmosphere causing me to cancel my coffee. Asked server to take out my dessert which was fabulous. Thank you and compliments to the chef and the kitchen staff for awesome food. This is my favorite restaurant in San Diego!

    Starting with the amuse bouche of cucumber with ahi along with the table size bread with salted butter…how could it get any better! But it does!! We shared the Avocado and Citrus salad which was crazy good! The colors, textures and the gentle flavors were amazing! One of us had the sea bass and the other the scallops with baby abalone. Oh my goodness…could have licked the plate!! The talents of the chef and the staff are among the best!

    We happened upon this hotel restaurant while finding a last minute dinner option on a Saturday evening. The service was impeccable. The wine list is fabulous. As we had travelled we were not that hungry and they gladly split our salad and entree to share. The grilled octopus appetizer was delicious, as were the beet citrus salad and the tuna entree. The homemade focaccia was over the top delicious.

    My wife and I have eaten at Grant Grill several time prior to concerts in the area. It was nice to be back here after a long absence. We were not disappointed as the entire experience was delightful. The setting is very comfortable with ample space between tables allowing for normal conversation, the menu is creative, and the wine list comprehensive. My wife had a lobster salad which she said was delicious and I had a scallop dish in a sauce that was extraordinary. Both meals were exceptional. The service was excellent and our wine by the glass was a substantial pour, well worth the price. Overall, and wonderful dinner; we will be back.
