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.

To qualify, we have been going to the Grill for 20 years. Always loved this place. However, tonight was inexcusable. We sat down and were rushed to order. Five minutes after ordering and even before they opened the very nice bottle of wine we brought ($ 25 corkage is fair) our first course arrived. Five minutes after we finished our salads, the entree arrived. Wow, what is the hurry ? We finished our entree with half a bottle of wine sitting there. We enjoyed our conversation, relaxing, and enjoying the wine. However, all of a sudden the manager stands at our table and says our 90 minutes are up and we need to leave. What ?
Where does it say we have 90 minutes? Our wine glasses are still full but we have to chug it and go? My date and I look at each other . WTF? Maybe we will come back in six months to see if they are back to normal. Maybe we won't. For $200 for two people lots of other options. I would suggest not bringing or buying a bottle of wine. Parties of four or more, good luck with "beat the clock"

What a way to break COVID. Gracious hosts, great, pro wait staff and all the classics. Save room (if that's even possible) for key lime pie.

The best thing about our dinner was that it was as if nothing had changed. The food and service were great, and the bartender is the only one who always gets my wife and my drink right every time. Welcome back!!!!

We were celebrating our daughter's 18th birthday, and it was our first time eating inside a restaurant in 18 months. The food was excellent a always, but our daughter wa disappointed that they no longer have their chocolate cake as a dessert.

This is a classic—we are in LA frequently and have made it a point to have at least one dinner here on each trip, for many years. They never disappoint.

Whether just for a dinner out in a "grill-like" old feel good like restaurant or a special occasion, this is a great place. We celebrated an anniversary.....nothing special provided, but just a nice evening out.

While the food is a bit pricey, it's well worth it. There are professional wait staff, not people working until they get a role in a movie.... Service is impeccable and attentive.

Wasn’t really a fan. Didn’t get treated well. Got left by the door where there is no space between diners and people at the bar.

one of the last old Beverly Hills classics. While we have lost Chasen's and others, The Grill on the Alley is like going home; to a good home. The service is classy, classic and excellent. The martinis first rate. the Fare is familiar and comforting and excellent.

We are so excited the Grill on the Alley has finally reopened. My wife’s steak was over cooked and fatty this time, but we didn’t really care. Though she didn’t eat it nor did I, the servers and staff were all excellent.
Hoping next time steak tartare

Although it is not that old, it is "Old School". A fine example of what can be achieved with premium food, exceptional ambiance and impeccable Staff. I have been coming since it opened, and now that it has Re-Opened I will be back as often as I am able. Do not delay, make a reservation and get there as quickly as you can and stay as long as you can.
