    I have enjoyed the Grill in the past, but I expected a higher level of of quality, even with it being Father's Day. I was very disappoint in the food for the following reasons: >I ordered Lobster Benedict and the lobster was unrecognizable. It was minced and you could not even taste it because of the sauce they mixed it with! It should have been called asparagus Benedict because that was most prevalent and undercooked. >The traditional Benedict was also ordered by my other guest and the ham was paper thin! > We were told the special of the day, but the price was never given, as I other restaurants! It was a 32oz prime rib for $85! If that had been known, a different selection would have been made. I was very disappointed!

    We were impressed with the tastiness of the servings and our waiter. Also, we are in out seventies and like many older people, we have dinner out in part to be around people. Invariably, we are seated at the very edge of the dining area even though we made reservations well in advance. But otherwise, we are planning to be back again for lunch or dinner soon even though it's a bit of a drive from Ventura.

    Fantastic food. Loved all our dishes. The crab cake was on point! The chocolate cake was just delicious. Would def come back for the food. Slightly Disappointed in the service. It was my friend’s birthday and I had mentioned it on the reservation. I don’t see the point of it being asked if it goes ignored. Noticed them taking candles on cake for a different table next to ours but ours was not acknowledged. Maybe I had to request it.. They seemed friendly at first but then it seemed like they just wanted use to leave. My plate was half full when a gentleman came and asked if he could remove it. I didn’t realize I had to rush my dinner and get out as fast as I could.

    Very disappointing experience. The service and my husband’s steak were good, as always, but everything else was not up to Grill on the Alley standards. First, the ahi appetizer was tasteless and seemed to have been prepared with previously frozen ahi. Next, the lobster salad was made with romaine that was tasteless, not fresh, and had brown edges, and the lobster was also tasteless. The goat cheese (which I usually like) was overpowering and was the only flavor that stood out in the salad. The drinks were underwhelming and the basil had brown spots on it. I don’t think we’ll be returning anytime soon to a restaurant we used to really enjoy.

    Another fantastic meal at The Grill. A lovely table and fantastic service. We started with cocktails, split a salad and then each had a wonderful entree. The manager Tracy came by to check on us and made sure we were enjoying our evening. We always feel so welcome there. We already can’t wait to go back.

    Food was great, waiter was quiet and not very social, made the reservation in celebration of a birthday for which the hostess noted, but then there was no birthday song/dessert. Disappointed as the Beverly Hills location always brings a small dessert with a candle, wait staff is tons friendlier at the Beverly Hills location. Mediocre visit at this location. If you want a true experience for what you’re paying for, go to the Beverly Hills location.

    Excellent dinner with friends. Three of us had the seared salmon and it was very delicious! My husband and I shared a Caesar salad and our friends shared a Caprese salad which looked delish as well. I also ordered a grapefruit martini which I did send back as it was too citrussy, or strong on the grapefruit side for me. My apple martini in its place was perfect! The guys had old fashions which they enjoyed.

    This was our fifth visit in less than six months. This is the second time we had dubious service - not delivering what we requested. We had cold (I mean cold) plates (very luke warm food) when we requested hot (very hot plates and food). What was worse was the reluctant and very delayed approach from (we had to request an “audience” with) the manager. Eye contact was minimal and we had to ask for sone kind of comp for our experience. For a place with such high level of expectation and price, our experience felt like we were at IHOP. Attention to detail (and I speak from a perspective of whose grandparents owned and ran restaurants in Europe and in Buenos Aires) is imperative… not negotiable for a restaurant of this alleged level. Every bit counts! From the call before we ever arrive, to the maître d‘restaurant (which has been constantly excellent), to the table setting, to the server’s greeting, to the order taking, to the delivery and presentation of the food and drinks, to the server’s attention and manager coming by, to the final bill and farewell.

    One of the top upscale restaurants in W.V.. Service, ambience & food are always very good although I have to say, they are better with 'meat' than seafood. I usually get a filet which is always cooked just right but last night, I decided to try something else and went with the Shrimp Pomodoro. The shrimp was overcooked and was not hot. Normally, I would send it back but it was 'edible' and was engrossed in good company so by the time I thought about sending it back, it was too late. Regardless, not a dish I would order again. Everything else was great so no complaints!

    I have eaten in this restaurant for years, (sometimes once a week) and it used to be "top notch" with the previous manager, Jay. However, while the wait staff is still truly excellent, the management does a poor job of running the kitchen. The last three times I have been there I have had to send food back that was usually undercooked. When I said something to the manager, her response was we do the best we can." last night at 6pm the place was not busy, and it truly seems simple to provide a "medium well" hamburger (especially one that sells for over $26), and not one that is still red (not pink) outside the top layer. I hope that by writing this review, they can do better, as THE GRILL has been one of my "go to" restaurants for years.

    Arrived on time at 6:45pm. Party of 3. Restaurant 50% empty on arrival, yet we got the popular booth by the bathroom. Complained and offered to move us one table away from the bathroom. Asked to be seated in the front of the restaurant. Seemed put off by the request. Did the restaurant retaliate? Don’t know, but…First cocktail delivered to table at 7:20pm. Dinner finished and left restaurant at 8:55pm.

    We had the John Dory fish and this time it was overcooked. A little rubbery. The last time it was outstanding. Could have sent it back but restaurants are still trying to get above water. We will try again.
