Top notch in all respects. Nice, upscale but not stuffy restaurant with delicious steaks (which we always get when we come here). Cocktails are strong and good. Our server was friendly, efficient, and helped me with the rewards app — so I got $25 off my bill because it was my birthday.

When you goto an upper scale Steak House, you expect all of your food to be prepared to higher level. When our food came to the table there was not one thing on the plate that was hot. All the food came out luke warm at best. The flavor of the food was good, just not served hot. When you are paying that kind of money for a dinner, you expect a better presentation of food. I probably will not return to that restaurant again.

First-time visit. Had been to the Kirby House before; didn't realize until recently that The Grill Room existed. An amazing place for a wonderful meal and romance. Very quiet and intimate--completely different from the Kirby House.

Food is always pretty good, but the service takes a long time. Every time I’ve eaten here it’s been a 2-3 hour event and not on purpose.

Food was absolutely fantastic!
Unfortunately our service was very poor. We waited a long time for our drink orde. Then an even longer longer time for our appetizer and dinner to be taken. We had reservations so we were expecting better service attentiveness.

We had a reservation, but came early. They were able to fit us in. Excellent wine list. Large side Caesar salads. Roasted garlic butter for your bread. Everything was perfect.

Pricey for the caliber of the food. Preparations are a little over zealous for what used to be a true “grill room” menu. Ambiance was great. Our waiter was fair, unlike Ben who is always outstanding.

Second time there. Birthday dinner for myself. Used Gilmore Birthday meal discount. Had NY strip, cooked correctly but not a prime cut. Hard to find a great steak without going to GR. Great Happy Hour deals in the bar, before the meal. Waiter was very accommodating, offering wine tastes before ordering. Great job!

Overall, the meal was not a good value. The Walleye was extremely dry and over cooked
The Delmonico was nothing special and not a good value. We won’t return.

The food was fantastic. It was slightly expensive, but the quality was definitely worth the price. We went early, so it was quiet, and not busy. We have been later previously, and I would definitely recommend having a reservation.

Been there before and had a great experience. This time we sat at a high top by the window which would have been awesome. However a speaker was above our head and music was loud and not what you would expect at a higher end restaurant. We had to send two meals back as one was lukewarm and other did not have any flavor (they added some spice). When they came back they were satisfactory. Waitress did a great job - she saved the night.

We very much enjoyed having dinner at the grill room. The food was excellent. We had the filet and scallops. All was presented very well and the Cabernet house wine was very good. The background music was to our liking. Not too loud and soft enough to appreciate the selections. Kate waited on us and was very good. She helped us through the menu as needed. And the dessert was great, a pineapple upside down cake with key lime pie. When in the area we will definitely stop in for dinner.

Both our steaks were ordered medium rare and came out well done. The waiter was good and handled everything fine. Even when our steaks were cooked properly, they were lack luster. We were disappointed.

The food was okay, nothing unusual. The service on a slow Monday night was SLOW. Our waiter was not attentive at all ? We waited about 15 minutes for him to remove our dinner plates when we obviously were finished. He came back later asking if we would like to see the dessert menu. We said we would. We all decided to forego dessert and placed the dessert menu near the edge of the table so he could see it. We had to ask another employee if she could get our bill as we had waited 15 minutes for our waiter to come back to see if we wanted dessert, or to bring our bill. I also wonder why they ask if you are celebrating anything. We were, but no mention was made of it by the waiter or staff?

Wonderful meal and superb service! The food was absolutely phenomenal. I had the mango coconut prime rib and my boyfriend had fillet mignon. Definitely recommend getting an appetizer and bread as well with a bottle of wine. Everything we tasted was just delicious. The server made really good recommendations and we can’t wait to come back
