The Grill on the Alley - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
I think the Grill on the Alley is one of the best kept secrets in Dallas. Food is always 5 star, ambiance has the right amount of lighting, and service is impeccable. The restaurant is on the smaller side/quaint for Dallas, so you do not feel overwhelmed with huge spaces. The Grill is great for business meetings, as well as when my family wants a great meal. There is something for everyone on the menu. With a husband and 2 boys (who seem to be opinionated even more so these days,) quiet is not our nature, so we really appreciate we can get lost in the moderate vibe of energy in the air. The location is great, and even though it is located at the Dallas Galleria, you do not feel you are at the mall. It is situated at the end corner cap with only outside access, and valet is offered. It is very convenient to get to. You seriously can not go wrong with this restaurant (unless of course you are looking for a nightlife scene to be seen.)
I work in and around the Galleria area and this is one of the best places to take clients out to a nice lunch. The service is top notch and the food is excellent. Portions tend to be pretty big so there are always leftovers. I like this chicken pot pie and I've had their salmon and Daily fish special several times. Delicious. Good place to have a nice business meeting and discussion.
This is one of my favorite places to eat in Dallas, for lunch or dinner. FYI, it is not inexpensive, but worth every penny! Start out with an artichoke dip; the dip is good, but the toasted bread with it will make you cry for more! Actually, you could just make a meal of all the appetizers. The sides are large enough to share with the table; but, definitely have the grilled Brussel sprouts. I had the stuffed trout with lump crab, it was so large I finished it the next day for lunch. One friend had the salmon and needed to take half home. My husband and other friend had steak which was perfect. Service is always so good and you are encouraged to take your time ordering and dining.
Fabulous food - great service - great skirt steak! They should serve the navy bean soup daily! It is wonderful! Love this place. It is vibrant, but you can hear the person you are with talking! Amazing! (PS - Skirt steak is the BEST anywhere, but the $29 price is REALLY too high!)
My husband and I have been coming here for years. Even though it is now a 45 minute drive for us, the service and food keep us coming back. If you want to be treated as a special guest with customer service, that is so hard to find, this is the place for you.
Expensive lunch once you add beverages and a soup or salad to an entree. The price would have been OK if the food was better. I had a crab cake which tasted very fishy and my companion's salad was bland.
It's a great spot for a business lunch, central location, upscale and relatively quiet. But the food could definitely be improved.
We chose the rib eye and crab and almond topped trout. Also the chipotle corn as a side. Fish and steak were very good. Side portions are very plentiful so share! Corn side was good but mildly flavored so if you prefer something with a lot of kick this is not the dish. Service was great! It was our anniversary so we were graced with a free 1/2 bottle of champagne and free dessert! We had the key lime pie and the peach cobbler. The pie was better than the cobbler. The cobbler was tart and we prefer our's sweeter. When we arrived we were seated in a booth close to the front of the restaurant and a booth with a very loud talking man was next to us so we requested a seat change which was graciously granted toward the back of the restaurant. Much better! This was our first visit and the ambiance was nice! Bar looks nice as well. We will definitely be back and bring friends!
We have been to GOA many times and it is always good. However, I wasn't very hungry the last time so I just ordered the lobster salad. I highly recommend staying away from this salad. It's tasteless with lots of lettuce and a few lobster chunks. My husband had lamb chops and they were wonderful. The service was excellent, as always.
