Very disappointed in our experience. Was seated promptly and then ignored and not acknowledged by any staff members. Sat at table 15 minutes and ended up leaving to go to another restaurant. Very disappointed.

Frustrating experience again. Disorganized- no menus no salt and pepper on the table no sweetener. You have to ask for everything. Menu is stripped down. Not robust like it once was. The vibe is all wrong.

I picked the restaurant because I've had good experiences in the past, but the service this time was very poor. Took a long time to take our order, didn't check in on us, we had to request drink refills, etc. Was very surprising. And food was good but not worth the price charged.

Love the new bottomless Kir Royales/mimosas! Had the off-menu seafood Louie salad with the lump crab only. It was wonderful a large portion of crab and I had enough to take home for another meal. My guest had he pot pie and only finished half of it too.
DARCY and David always make sure we feel like we are their only guests.

I wish our waiter spent as much time focused on delivering a basic level of service as he did trying to upsell us. I had to ask twice for lemons for my water, and the bread we requested never made it to the table. Small lapses that were magnified by all the time and effort he spent trying to get us to order additional, more expensive dishes.

WOW! We went early so it was not yet crowded. The atmosphere was welcoming, the wait staff attentive and the food was outstanding. High ceilings and dark wood paneling combine the nostalgia for the past with the expectation of the new. Our waiter was a man passionate about his work and eager to share any and all details of the ingredients, preparation and taste of anything on the menu. He is a credit to the restaurant. Dining style is relaxed and the noise level was low enough to carry on a quiet conversation. Portions are generous, desserts are imaginative and the overall experience was one I would gladly repeat.

Excellent food and service. There are plenty of great steak houses in Dallas and this is one of them. Probably the best wedge salad anywhere and the steak was done perfectly.

I have been coming to the Grill for 10 years. This was my first time since you changed the menu. I am disappointed that some of my favorites didn't make the cut. However, what I had, the meatloaf, was very good. I will continue to come and recommend.

The team here is great but very concerning how empty it is! Even on a Thursday night. If there were 18 patrons there I would be surprised. No business model will survive without customers especially in 'over stored' Dallas as there are way too many choices here.
The food was great and the employees were stellar.. The bartender could have told us it was happy hour since it was our first time in but we figured it out...... Then the coconut cake which was huge, was just awful, tasted old. If you want to see how a good coconut cake should be made; check out Del Frisco's Grille... OMG amazing... I would go back here again though and sit at the bar and enjoy the food.. The restaurant is really pretty too. I hope business picks up!

The server was excellent. The sashimi I ordered for lunch was the smallest, thinest pieces we had ever seen. I ordered it for my lunch, but it would barely be an appetizer. The server brought me another order, but it was the same. Total rip off. Do not order.

Overall the food and experience was generally good, however we started with 2 martinis that turned out to be $18.00 each. Way over priced. And it was difficult to pay $11.00 for a baked potato. Very small crowd for a Saturday night in Dallas. Don't think the prices justified the the food quality.

My wife and I had dinner at the Alley on Valentine's day. The place has a very classy and elegant look and vibe. It would be great for a business client meeting, or for a romantic evening. The waiter and staff were very professional, attentive, yet unobtrusive. I like that we had a choice of the main menu, or the fix priced special they were running on Valentines Day. We chose the fixed price option, and everything was delicious and well done. The price was on the high side of what I would have expected for a similar experience, but other than that, I'd recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I went to the Grill on the Alley for an early Valentine's dinner. It was a Sunday evening and not very crowded. Our waiter came out, and we were able to get drinks quickly. We were asked if we wanted an appetizer; we declined, but asked if we could split a salad. That also came out quickly. The waiter then disappeared for about 20 minutes, during which time we had finished our salads and had the plates cleared. When the waiter finally showed up, seeing that our table was clean, asked if we wanted an appetizer or salads. He had apparently forgotten he had already asked us that some time back. We ordered our entrees (we had to prompt him for the specials), and those appeared in a reasonable amount of time, but brought to us by a different waiter. The original waiter disappeared again, only showing up sometime after our entrees had been cleared. I asked for a dessert menu, ordered one, and was told the kitchen was out of that selection. It seemed a bit early in the evening to have run out of something, but it wasn't that big of a deal to me. I then asked for the check, which I think the original waiter dropped off, but the second waiter actually handled the transaction. When she (the second waiter) brought the bill for my signature, she asked if we could wait a minute for a "surprise." This turned out to be the dessert I was told they were out of. The explanation I was given was that "the kitchen sometimes lies," but I'm guessing it could be due to lack of knowledge on the original waiter's part.

I hesitate to give a negative review, since the food was very good. But our first waiter, whether due to incompetence or inexperience, marred the experience. Our female waiter seemed to be more on the ball. But with so many great steak options in Dallas, I can't really recommend this one.

Food was mediocre. Drinks were strong; service impeccable. Completely underwhelming dining experience. If you are looking for an amazing steakhouse, skip this place and head to Bob's, Pappas Brothers, or one of the other steakhouses all throughout Dallas.

The Grill on the Alley is one of Dallas' best restaurants. Classy club atmosphere, great food, especially the steaks, great service, good drinks and wine list. It's a wonderful atmosphere, quiet enough to talk comfortably. It's simply a great place for a fine meal.
