The Grill on the Alley was opened in 1984 as a living tribute to the great American grills of yesterday. In time, it has established itself as one of the country's leading restaurants, praised by writers across the country. The menu is classic American grill - prime steaks, fresh seafood, traditional dishes such as chicken pot pie or meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and homemade desserts. Named to The Fine Dining Hall of Fame by Nation's Restaurant News, The Grill is home of the entertainment industry's "power lunch," but is also open for dinner seven days a week.

Horrible service, food was over cooked, not fresh at all - one of the worst meals I’ve ever had at The Grill

Extremely disappointing that at 7:30 PM they were out of two menu items, one of which (white fish) is part of the regular menu. In fairness, they did “make it right” by honoring the white fish price for a more expensive alternative selection.
That the restaurant is transitioning ownership seemed very obvious

I took my friend to The Grill for his Birthday and we were treated like “Royalty”! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food and drinks were fantastic as well. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

We always love the Grill. Hands down one of the best customer service in BH. We were celebrating our Son’s birthday. Everyone was very gracious and came to sing when the cake was served.

Very much a ‘locals’ hangout. Because of time change we ate a little earlier then usual. Staff knew the patrons and visa-versa. Great food and service. Friendly staff.

Food, service and and overall experience were excellent. It all starts with Hector at the door. He greets you warmly and makes you feel like you belong. Our guests celebrated their anniversary which we advised when making the reservation. Waiter did not have to be reminded, he handled it perfectly.

I love lunch at the Grill. The look of the place, welcoming Pamela, the fun waiters...then there are
the great cocktails and food! I particularly like the John Dory which is a fish you don't find often.
I took to friends visiting from Florida and they both loved it as well.

It is a true LA gem !!

The food is excellent and there are choices for all tastes. The food was prepared to each of our requests. The service was very good. The noise level was very high, so speaking across of the table was just surrounded by the noise level.

Tucked away on an alley is The Grill. A fixture of the BH scene for many, many years. Make a pilgrimage, you won’t be disappointed!

The Grill on the Alley offers a cool "old-school" setting with good drinks and comfortable booths. Unfortunately, the food is boring (even for a traditional steakhouse) and undistinguished, and the price-quality ratio makes it hard to justify a repeat visit. I might go there for a business lunch, but there are many better choices for a nice dinner out.

Great location! Food is worth it! Shop on Rodeo drive then enjoy a martini at the bar including cheese stuffed olives! The cheese bread is an awesome appetizer. I recommend the short ribs if you stay for dinner. Definitely make reservations. If you stay 2 hours, parking is free.

The Grill on the Alley is a hidden gem. The service and food were impecable and I would definitely put this restaurant on your "to do" list if you have not been there. I will be bringing friends who visit us here in Los Angeles there for dinner in the future.

The Grill on the Alley always delivers. It starts with Gio, the GM, and it continues with the great food that is perfectly prepared and delivered by a top notch service team. The Grill never disappoints and it is consistently excellent.

First off the food was good (hard to enjoy when annoyed at the host) and our server was great. Drinks were on point as well. However, my poor rating is for the overall experience.

Upon arriving for our reservation I was informed that we had a booth but it was needed by 7:15pm. This is the second time in my life this has happened, ironically both times in LA.... #needtolearnwhatserviceindustrymeans

Sure enough 7:15 rolls around and the host literally stood next to our table until we looked up, then simply stated the next party had arrived.

I am but one person and I won’t make much of a difference to them, but I will never return to see how good the food could be.
