The Grill on the Alley - Aventura
Book your next event with us
Need to book at 4:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
We dine at The Grill on the Alley often!! We got to the bar at 6:20, it took 18 minutes for the bartender to give a pathetic Hello, another 10 minutes to get the drinks and the bar was empty as was the restaurant! As we were a bother to be attended too!
We sat at a table got 8! 1/2 hour to get the bread and drinks! The restaurant had 8 small tables of 2-3 people per table.
The waitress brought the drinks to the men first then the women! Quite odd! 3 of the 8 drinks were wrong! Finally starters! Mediocre. The Main course, we had to ask the Maître d’for our waitress as the steak was over cooked. The waitress went missing! The steak went back the meal was done and never received the new steak!!!!
Bottom line, the management is awful which results in the staffing l!
Not a pleasant dining experience for a lot of $$$$!!!
They were out of scallops, swordfish and low-fat milk! Food was salty. Service was ok.
Wonderful service and attention. Food was great quality.
I've been coming here for years you get top notch service and fantastic food this is definitely a place to come for date nights anniversaries and special occasions.
My husband and I went out with our very good friend and realtor for dinner. We hadn’t seen each other in a while and wanted to share a good time with a good friend. We did that at Grill on the Alley. The food was excellent. One of us had fish, another had chicken and the third had steak. Each of us totally enjoyed our meal. We shared a delicious bottle of Pinot noir and a scrumptious Apple crumble for dessert. It was a lovely dining experience. The service was excellent too. We could not have asked for better.
Great place, great food. I have aten there for many years now; same quality
Fined here for the 2nd New Years on a row. The restaurant did not disappoint. Great food, superb service and overall a great evening!! We will he back!!
Started off with the Hostess being rude. We asked to move to a booth because we didn’t want to sit in an oversized table, and instead of explaining why, she just walked away from us. The waiter was awful. We waited a half hour for him to take our drink order while he was busy taking orders from tables that sat after us. He then proceeded to inject himself into 2 of our conversations when he was picking up our plates. He was super loud and overbearing each time. When we getting to check out, he put the credit card machine in front of me and proceeded to grab my credit card and push the 20 percent tip button for me. Steaks were sub - par - and grisly. I rarely write reviews , but our experience was so bad I just had to. We won’t be coming back.
The waiter was not great. I really went for onion soup but they were sold. How??
I love this restaurant... its one of my favorites. The food is delicious, the service is great and the ambience is a real fabulous steakhouse.
They ran out of food!
Had A1 sauce as a steak sauce
We were taken to our table and everything was wonderful, a very helpful waiter, but, a few things that we ordered were already not available, we had a 7pm reservation, it's a bit early to be out of shrimp cocktail, and fish that two of us wanted for main courses,,,
Love the Chicken Pot Pie
Amazing food and service! Would highly recommend!
On vacation. Food was good but expensive. Large salad Beautiful food service but small portion
Food delicious service very good
We celebrated our 41st anniversary here st s Sunday lunch...one of best meals ever! The sea bass with miso had a perfect crust and white, flaky tender fish inside...that oysters v th fresh and sweet...spinach on the side cooked perfectly ..calimari cooked just a tad too much but still delicious...they have a bottomless drink special and they brought fresh replacement drinks before we had emptied our glasses...also graciously comped us an anniversary dessert with candle. A little pricey but so worth it. Can’t wait to go back!
I thought the food and service was very good.My only issue was that there is construction at the mall and parking was an issue as was finding the restaurant in all the construction barricades.
Eating in the bar is the best place! The bartender is amazing!! She is really great!
Amber was amazing. Super friendly and very knowledgeable. Good is amazing as always!
We had a great Chicken Pot pie $21.95( huge, easily shareable)
it was very good. We ordered the rib eye with porcini dust & balsamic, they forgot to cook it as ordered but remembered to charge us. we also ordered a burger with cheese & an extra of bacon, it was a good huge burger $16.95+ $2 for the bacon.
The sides were yummy saute spinach with garlic, truffle fries(mild), onion rings & brussel sprouts with bacon ( under cooked, still hard. Make sure they are cooked !
Finished with a nice key lime pie... A good bet if you are at the mall.
I went w my boyfriend when we heard the brick chicken was back on the menu. We both ordered it. I took 1 bite and the chicken tasted gamey, and it was very greasy. But it was the gaminess that made me send it back. I ordered the onion soup which was very good, but the taste of the chicken turned me off completely. I also ordered the crab cake for an appetizer, which was good. We will not be going back bc there is no excuse for gamey chicken. My boyfriend ate it because he’s too polite to send it back.
The restaurant was empty which makes me wonder if the food was old.
We took a hiatus from the restaurant bc they completely changed the menu a couple of years ago. As I said our favorite brick chicken came back to the menu so we gave it a go. There was nothing in that dish that tasted like the original brick chicken, plus the horrible taste of the chicken itself.
It’s a shame bc we live right in aventura and it could be a go to restaurant but it’s not going to be. I would never write a bad review online because that is not my style but u asked my opinion so I am giving it.
It's a nice and quiet restaurant. Meat is amazing. We tried the Miami Space menu. It was really good.
Although this was not my first choice I was open to trying a new steak house out. We honestly went bc they had availability at the time we wanted. I had no expectations but was pleasantly surprised with the service and food that we ate. Our waitress was excellent and made great recommendations and the food was excellent. Towards the end when we ordered dessert she even put a candle on my dates dessert without even telling her!!!
This was a great experience and using the app was easy and simple to get a reservation.
I will defiantly go again and of course book it thru the app.
Waitstaff was knowledgeable about the food and service was with a smile. If you're a spinach dip with artichoke fan, The Grill's is a must have. I am already planning my next visit.
Best steak in Miami. As far as I know. Also the mash potato.
Buena comida y agradable lugar. Servicio lento y nuestro mesero muy poco presente en la
Mesa. Demasiado caro
Great meal and service
Too bad, as with most restaurants, the musi
I met a friend for lunch and was disappointed with the Cobb salad I ordered. The lettuce was piled so high one couldn’t see the rest of the ingredients. The Caesar salad didn’t have any eye appeal.
Been going there for years, and will return.
I had a lovely time. Bar tender was very attentive and suggested some nice drinks.
Filet was perfection. Service very attentive without being intrusive.
Excellent, attentive service. Everyone enjoyed their ordered dish. The lamb chops were a bit overpriced for the portion size and could have had a touch more seasoning. The brownie was ordered for dessert and was supposed to have sugared pecans. When it came out we were informed that they were out of pecans. We sent it back. That information should have been communicated prior to see if we still wanted the brownie. I would definitely recommend.
The staff are always excellent, very attentive. Food never disappoints,
I should have known walking in for an 8 pm Saturday night reservation and the place was basically empty. the service was so-so, definitely not supportive of their high price point. The sirloin steak was was cool to the touch, like it had been cooked, left out in the open, until everything else was ready.
This was a birthday occasion, noted on the reservation. The server needed to be reminded at the end of the meal about the special occasion.
there are scores of top rated restaurants and Aventura Mall, but this is not one of them.
Way over paid for kind crab- $65 per person
Disappointed in the food. However, in all fairness they offered to correct it. But we were late for a movied so we passed. Service was good. The food was another thing.
This was our third time in a week having dinner there. We have never been disappointed . We had filets this time and they were outstanding. They were prepared to perfection.
We really enjoy the restaurant and are never disappointed. The server was friendly without being obtrusive.
We will be back again and again
I have been to this restaurant before but this was my best experience . The food seemed better,the service was excellent and it was quieter where I was sitting which made the whole experience better.
Food tastes good overall, but overpriced. Restaurant was relatively slow for a Saturday night in Avery crowded mall. I would have expected the service to be more attentive for the price and lack of crowd.
We enjoyed our food. It was cooked to perfection. The maître d’ was very polite and the servers were kind. Worth every penny.
