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.

I made the reservation for my husband for a business meeting. He loved his meal. I have eaten there many times as well and have to agree with him... the dood is delicious. Service is old school (I have no idea what that means) but in any case it is phenomenal.

The steak was overcooked (ordered medium rare and came medium) of poor quality and it took forever to order. The waiter disappeared when it came time to order wine, dessert and the check. At these prices there are much better options-like the Palm a couple of blocks away. Don't waste your money.

Went to Grill for my sister’s birthday. She ordered from Dine LA. Her fish was pretty plain but she asked for sauce.
My whitefish was delicious. Drinks great too

My Dover Sole was overcooked which is very unusual. The martinis, broccoli and carrot cake were out of this world as usual.

Always great service and terrific food. And, for a change, there's a real chef in the kitchen who actually will make "modifications" to your order, if, requested. Really! A chef who actually listens to the guests and provides the food we truly look forward to eating!

Filet was excellent but Barramundi had no taste slightly undercooked and not the best quality fish one can buy.

Was there for Dine LA. Food was OK except my filet mignon "medallions" were thin and tasteless. The others food was better except for the Chicken Pie which was mostly crust. Wouldn't recommend, however, because the noise was deafening. Apparently they don't realize that people want to actually visit with their friends.

This was my first time at the Grill. The service and food were both exceptional. The servers were very attentive and treated all their customers as if they were special, even though the restaurant is located in BH where they have a loyal Hollywood patronage. The food was very creative & delicious as well. The portions were just right & that sourdough bread is addictive! Special shout out to Salvatore who was our very attentive and entertaining server. I will definitely come again.

The Grill is elegant it has old Hollywood wrapping around every corner. I have eaten there several times and every time I'm greeted by people who love their work and bend over backwards to make sure your every need is met. The food is always delicious and beautifully presented.
The Grill on the Alley in Beverly Hills never disappoints.

We don't come here often enough but each time we eat here we remember why we like it so much. The menu is a mix between tried and true comfort food and new specialties and seasonal foods. The service is outstanding, and even if there is a short wait, the maitre d' keeps you informed as to how much longer it will be or whether you'd be fine with a table rather than e.g. a booth to cut the wait time. The portions are just the right size, there's a nice wine list (tried "Freak Show" and it was a winner!) and the desserts are lovely.

O.K. - nothing special. Was not happy with the service and the food was just O.K. I did not like being upcharged on a well drink for a margarita when all I did was order a standard bar margarita.

Dined here with family... many times over the year. Always good steak house. Adult comfort food. My only complaint this last time was that the service seemed slow and uncoordinated. Hard to get a waiter's attention. Will still go back.

The Grill is an old school eatery, serving classic dishes in a dignified and retro setting. Service is outstanding. The food was fine, if rather pricey, but it didn’t knock my socks off. If your aged relatives are in town, they would probably enjoy it but for me it felt a little outdated.

I chose this restaurant because of the movie, The Holiday. It was even prettier in person. I have had few dining experiences this perfect, from the warm reception to the lovely holiday decorations to the impeccable service to the incredible food (the chicken pot pie!) My husband and I dined here after going to the theater last Saturday night. I think that evening will be the highlight of our entire holiday season. Truly, it was a date night for the ages!

I've been going to the Grill on the Alley for years now and I believe it to be one of those places that you can go where you cannot have a bad time. There are NO surly waiters and the food is always exceptional. And by the way, the prime rib they serve on Sunday night is really the best prime rib I have ever had and I have had a bunch. I'd recommend the Grill On the Alley, in Beverly Hills to anybody and everybody. I have never been to the other locations so I cannot speak for them. All I know is that WE love this one.

I came because a friend had recommended the prime rib on Sunday. It was excellent and a great value since it was a complete dinner and not a la carte. It was cooked perfectly with much left to take home for dinner the next day.
I have gone to the Grill since it opened and am a big fan of the Cobb Salad and one can never go wrong with a steak or the fish, but the Prime Rib, which comes with Yorkshire Pudding, Baked Potato, and Creamed Spinach is exceptional. Worth making the Sunday evening drive for.
