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.

Been here many times with my parents. Now that they are gone my kids and grandkids enjoy coming. Love the shoestring potatoes and onions. Pot pie is delicious and the bread warm, fresh and hot. Sundae great for dessert.

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.

Honnestly, for what is supposed to be a high end steak house, theu don’t know how to cook a medium rare steak, it was medium 2 times, and the meat quality was without any taste and let lot of water in my plate

This was our 2nd visit because we enjoyed it so much last time. The location is odd because it really is on an alley but it feels like a speakeasy from back in the day. When you step inside you feel like you’re in a special place, beautifully appointed & elegant. My husband went with the Dover Sole because we had steaks the last time we were here & I chose the Pork Shank, one of the specials on that night’s menu. Both were delicious. They have a great wine list & the service is consistently good. Our waiter did forget that we ordered a side of Brussel Sprouts so had the kitchen rush them & they were extremely hot & a tad undercooked as a result. However, he didn’t charge us for them & we had plenty of food anyway. We will be back when in town again!

My wife and I have been going here for years. One of the best steak houses in LA. In a great location off of Rodeo Drive and all the people watching along that street. Although on the pricier side, the food is worth it.

We've been going to The Grill on the Alley for probably at least 25 years - not often since it's a distance away, but every time we do we say we have to come here more often. They have a bunch of comfort food options, but always new and delicious options as well. The service is impeccable, the food comes out nice and hot and nicely plated. If you're about to ask for some extra that didn't come out with the meal, the waiter usually reads your mind and has it in his hand as you request it (e.g., ketchup, more bread, sauce for an item). The noise level made it a little difficult for our group of 5 to hear each other, though they did put us in a quieter location per our request. All of us ended up taking food home because there was just too much to eat in a single seating (especially if you have their unbeatably crusty bread!

I went this past Friday upon my arrival in LA. I had steak and mashed potatoes, and onion rings as an appetizer. They served the onion rings with blue cheese dressing and it was soooo tasty!!! The steak was tender and seasoned to perfection! I will make this a stop whenever I’m in Cali again! I highly recommend.

The Grill on The Alley is fantastic! Incredible service and incredible food. The double cut lamb chops, rib eye steak, oysters, creamed spinach are the best you will find anywhere in this city. The drinks, the service-2nd to none. The Gill on The Alley is tops! This is definitely a must-go-to while in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica or Hollywood. The waiters have all been here a long time and you will not find better service anywhere else. Love to people watch here. The General Manager, managers and Maitre d' know are world-class. ENJOY!

We used Open Table to make the reservation, indicating it was a birthday and requesting a quiet (as much as would be possible in such a busy, popular restaurant) table and they brought us right to a perfect table. Food was delicious as always (I had the Braised Short Ribs...amazingly tender)!

Delicious food overall excepting the bland heirloom tomato salad. Maybe 1 deep purple tomato slice tasted flavorful and juicy. The other juicy yellow tomatoes lacked the farm freshness I expected. Portions are large enough to take half home for another meal. Drinks were very good. Cheers to the bartender.

Used to be dependable & first class. The waiter “forgot” part of my order, then delivered it partially cooked when I reminded him. Fish was ok but way overpriced for what it is. Just not worth the price anymore. Very noisy too.

Service was extremely slow about 30-45 minutes sitting at the table just waiting for drinks and to order. Food was outstanding and although it took a while to be approached by our waiter he was very nice and very knowledgeable about the items on the menu. We came due to a recommendation by our hotel but sadly we would not go back due to the long wait time.

Birthday dinner for my friend. Just two “girls.” It was a quiet night at The Grill because of Rosh Hashanah, so the noise level was
down, but I was there Saturday night and it was very noisy. Nevertheless, its impossible to have a bad meal here, so we put up with the high energy level.

The potions are large so we shared a salad, the Wedge, chopped. We also shared an entree, the Lake Superior Whitefish, grilled, and sautéed green beans and sugar snap peas. Because we shared we had room for dessert. Strawberry shortcake!

When the weather is cooler, my favorite meal is/are the Short Ribs! They are beyond delicious and never disappoint. My husband always has the Dover Sole.

Our waiter this evening was attentive and very pleasant.

You can’t find a better meal in Beverly Hills or anywhere else in Southern California. The Grill on the Alley never disappoints!
