The Grill on the Alley - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
If you are going to the grill, just order steak. My daughter and I ordered chicken picatta which was undercooked, rubbery, and tasted like a frozen entree'. The three guys in our party all ordered steak and they were delicious. I'm not a steak eater, I don't have an appetite for a meal that substantial so I count on steak houses to have good options for lighter eaters. She and I both felt ill the next day from the chicken and were disappointed that a $400 meal wasn't simply amazing. Service was very nice but disorganized, entree's came before we had finished the appetizers, we felt rushed.
So bizarre how my reservation couldnt have been found yet I had a confirmation.. It was suppose to be a private dinner and we were sitted at this huge table with about 6 other seats not romantic at all... The waiter was not personable didn’t even introduce himself.. I saw a gentleman I’m assuming Manager or owner go around asking other customers if they were enjoying themselves.. He never came to us and asked us.. So much for first impressions.
Very Dissapointing. Sent back the first entree because the beef on the French Dip was dry and over cooked. Waitress said it would be medium rare. Not sure Vern close. Roll was also very hard. Reordered the beef salad. Meat was same again and salad was covered in way to much dressing.
This is one of those places that doesn’t get enough attention and credit for how well it is run. The staff and bartender were the stars of the night. This is one of those restaurants that you should rediscover for a good night out. When you finally make it around to going there, you will see what I mean.
My husband and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed the food and drinks and our server was awesome. He was very attentive and could answer any question we had in regards to the menu. There was another server working that night as well and if our server didn't see our drinks getting low, he did. They were a great team! The only problem we had was when we walked in, there were two people working in the front and it took a while for them to acknowledge us standing there, and the restaurant was relatively dead save for a bridal party that was trickling in. When I made my reservation I stated that we were celebrating our anniversary and we'd like a cozy booth, neither of those requests were acknowledged. We were placed at the first available booth, and no one ever mentioned anything in regards to the celebration.
My meal was very good. My wife ordered the chicken pot pie however and it was so salty she couldn't eat it. We told the waitress who told the manager and he came to our table. We let him taste it and he agreed. Soon the chef was at our table apologizing for the dish. They removed the charge from the bill. This is the mark of good serve: how mistakes are handled. All restaurants and chefs make mistakes, what separates the good the from the bad is how they handle them. Bravo to the Grill on the Alley for how they handled this.
This was one of many meals I've had here, only better! We were warmly greeted by a new manager named Tyler. He thanked us for coming in and accommodated my seating request. Darcy our server was attentive while not being to intrusive. We started with shrimp cocktail, tasted fresh and presentation was nice. My date had the halibut and roasted veggies which he enjoyed. I had crab stuffed trout and creamed spinach- both were really delicious! A lot of crab and topped with hazelnuts. We finished with the key lime pie, just tart enough to keep it from being to sweet. This was definitely my best meal ever at The Grill!
This place used to be good but has gone steadily downhill. We had three dishes, none of which were very good. The trout has been generally good, but not that night. There was hardly
in the restaurant....and it's Restaurant Week!
I don't know what's changed over the years, but we used to go there about twice a month. We won't be back,
My wife and I went to The Grill on the Alley for a date night. We arrived in time for happy hour and we were blown away by the excellent level of service coming from the bar. Unfortunately, that level didn't carry over to the service we experienced in the restaurant. The server we had did a good job, but I think they were understaffed for the type of "upscale" restaurant they advertise to be. The food was good, but it took a while to receive requested sauces, drink refills and water refills. I have been to several restaurants in the same class, and will probably stick with them in the future.
