Great service sitting outside with friends. We had appetizers and shared. We all had a great time. My only complaint - Seagrams Vodka? I know it's cheap -and we did have it mixed but really?

I always enjoy visiting The Grill whether for dinner or happy hour. The food is usually quite good and this visit lived up to expectations. It's difficult to evaluate service in the wake of covid but our server was very friendly even though not quite as prompt as usual, but no complaints.

Willamette valley Pinot noir was excellent. Petite NY strip was ok, broccoli that came with it could have been warmer and would have liked hollandaise. Wife’s chopped wedge not much taste. Oysters appetizer was good but oysters really small. Service a bit draggy. Overall given the prices, average.

Every time we visit the Grill on the Alley, Westlake, we are thrilled. It is an absolutely wonderful restaurant. The service, food, and environment were so perfect. We sat outside in the covered area, near the bar and ordered our dinners.

We were told they were under new ownership. The food was ok, the service was ok. The wine list is no longer what I would expect from a Grill on the Alley. Its a grocery store wine list. All the big names that the website wine list shows are gone. It was an embarrassment. I won't go back to a Grill on the Alley or recommend them to anyone else.

Overall, a great place to dine. Not noisy or crowded. Staff was very good. Food and drinks were very good. Every restaurant has high pricing, to be expected post pandemic with increased inflation and inflated gas prices.

- French Onion Soup
- Sesame Sashimi

We live in Seattle and had been to The Grill on the Alley on a previous, pre-Covid trip to Westlake Village. Everything was as we remember it; outstanding staff, superb cocktails, wonderfully flavorful entrees and nice patio ambience. However, my grilled chicken was unfortunately rubbery and tough although the seasoning and taste was excellent. I attribute this to the cut of meat rather than the preparation, and our server graciously took it off our bill when I casually mentioned it. Despite this hiccup, The Grill on the Alley is definitely a favorite restaurant of ours in Westlake Village.

Have dined here many times in the past. We went back for my son’s graduation and dined inside for the first time after COVID. This restaurant has great food and service, as usual. Again, COVID has left its marks and has taken away the luxuries we were accustomed to before COVID. The inside decor was uninviting, with only a few tables, the menu was a piece of paper that included both food and wine list, instead of the old nice leather bound booklets, and a separate one for the wine list, and there was no candles or lights of any kind on the table. Unfortunately, we have lost all those subtle effects that added to a nice dining experience. I am truly hoping for the old ways of things to come back and we gain back the qualities and luxuries of life. All that pertains to all restaurants these days, so it is not a specific problem with this restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Very overpriced and middling quality at best. Serving a big chunk of broccoli as part of the entree Is ridiculous. I do it 10x better at home. Not recommended.
