We love the Grill! It's our go to for fantastic food! Thank You to Samantha for exceptional service.
A good bar and restaurant that has excellent service and a nice view of Chavez Plaza.
Favorite steakhouse in Greater San Jose area! So nice to be back dining there.
Enjoyed the Prix Fix Special at Dining Downtown event. The sashimi appetizer was like a whole meal. Delicious chocolate mouse for dessert. Very generous portions. At the special price it was a great value. A bit pricy without the discount, but always fabulous food.
The Grill has always been a great place to have that special dinner.
The calamari was light and tender. The home made bread for the artichoke dip turned up the flavor. The New York's were lean and full of flavor. Everything was so fresh. The service was exceptional. With the Fairmont closed this maybe THE secret hideaway of the year.
Glad I finally got to the Grill and that it still seems to live up to the years of buildup and expectation I held for it, even after this past year of upheaval. Host and Wait Staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. We had the grilled salmon and the macadamia halibut. Both were lovely! Thank you for the extra water bowl for our pup!
Lovely girls night out!! We ate out on the patio. We had drinks and appetizers. Our server, Cam was terrific! Just a note...planes flying into SJ Airport are close. But the ambiance is great!! Love this place!
It was really good experience and my kids loved the food and cleaned their plates 😀 will be coming again for sure
price not in accordance to quality of food and service
With the weather being so hot I booked a reservation for indoors only to arrive and find the AC barely working. This was a huge disappointment. When I asked about turning up the AC I was told that they needed the engineer from the Fairmont Hotel which is closed. I felt a discount on our bill was warranted but was never offered. Totally disappointed because I have many fond memories of this restaurant. I will need to reconsider if I will return.
I had such an incredible experience at The Grill on the Alley. Food was fresh and my filet was mouth watering and tender.
Our waiter, Jesus, was very attentive and I enjoyed returning to The Grill.
I asked the server what were the best choices on the menu, followed his lead . . . awesome. Just awesome!
We had a wonderful time, dining in a nice restaurant after sheltering for so long and waiting for vaccines to take effect. The space was beautiful, quiet, and clean. The food was outstanding and the service exemplary. I can't recommend The Grill enough and if we could afford to eat there often, we definitely would!
Steak, salmon and cheeseburger were all delicious! Steak done to perfection!
It is one of our favorite restaurants. The lobster bisque is the very best!
Service was poor, food just ok, and weird being there with only 1 other table in that giant room. We have always loved your restaurant but yesterday it felt creepy being there. Like a ghost town feel. Sad to say as I mentioned we have spent many occasions and parties there.
Best old-school restaurant with private booths, great food, and excellent service. Has been a frequent return-to-restaurant over the years.
Excellent service, fantastic steaks!
It was my first visit and my wife's second visit. The location, atmosphere, service, food/drink, were excellent. We highly recommend it.
I was pleasantly pleased with the service, the wine, cocktails, and the food. I went away very zen like.
It was near empty so it felt a little odd. But the server Eric was excellent. And so is my French onion soup.
Still great, even post shutdown. Yummy cocktails!
Waiter Dylan was terrific! Huge burger and great fries, and Brussels sprouts. Only complaint is everything was a bit over salted.
The service was great and dining indoors was wonderful. My rib eye steak really sub par. About 1/2 thick and overdone. No flavor.
Ambience was great, staff were very attentive but not intrusive, food was delicious. We were celebrating several events, and they made it a special night for us. I look forward to the next time I get to go back.
Perfect place for dining. Service is excellent from greeting to food serving. Love it.
My date’s salad was not to her liking, but she did not want to send it back. After discussing the issue, she will be more vocal in the future. The dressing was spicy and she expected it to be sweeter/ tangy blend
It is special place to take a date.
The food was excellent and the service was well timed
Went there early on a Thursday evening to dine inside not too long after indoor dining was allowed. Restaurant was mostly empty, but well configured for distance between tables. The food and service were excellent.
Jesus was great, very polite and great service! I miss Daily Grill in SF, but I’m glad I could come to visit the San Jose Grill on the Alley location. Loved the seating and ambiance. Everything was great. Thank you!
was my 60th birthday, we arrived early for 5pm reservation. they were not busy, there were maybe 2 other tables there. service was extremely slow, our table was not given any bread at all. main dishes were amazing but side dishes were cold & servings were small. our bill was close to $1000 so i thing it was unacceptable but because of covid i tipped generously.
Service was invincible. My New York Strip was not impressive but everyone else was impressed with the ribeye. I thought the prices were very high considering the portions of the sides and such. Service was impeccable and I think I might return again.
Great service and delicious steaks!
Very quiet for one of the first nights after indoor dining was allowed to resume. Food was very good. Very pricey!
Decent. Not impressed
Always great food and service! My favorite place to go downtown SJ!
The grill on the alley was very nice. The waiter was very attentive. For being outside in the evening, it was actually very warm and cozy.
Our waiter, Jesus, was excellent! I've always loved The Grill and I'll be back!
