It was 15 minutes from the time we arrived Sunday morning to a server taking our order. Several tables that entered after us ordered and got their food before we did.
The food, when it arrived, was good. All three of us were pleased with our meals.

The appetizers came to the table before the entree, but it was quickly corrected. Took a while for some one to clear our plates after we finished our entrees. I did find it odd the server never asked if we would like coffee with our dessert.
Chilean Sea Bass and Crab cake were divine!!!

We booked this for Coolinary, since the website specifically had the brunch hours listed, and there was no mention of an exclusion for weekends. Not worth it otherwise, especially with $23 bottomless mimosas that are $10-15 everywhere else in town.

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal at the grill room. I ordered the gnocchi, Chilean sea bass, and the creme brulee trio, all three were absolutely wonderful!
The wait staff was just as marvelous as the food. They engaged in enjoyable conversation, and remembered little things throughout the night that they made reference to throughout the meal.
The ambiance was perfect. It was a quiet setting, with lighting to match the time of day/night. The live piano was a lovely touch to set the tone for the evening.

The only complaint I had on the night, was the pacing of the food. It was a little slow for my liking, though the food was well worth waiting for.

It's been 20 years since I've been to this restaurant. I'm a native, but don't live in town anymore. There are SO many great places that have opened since then, I had neglected the Grill Room. Elegant, masculine decor in the Windsor Court style? Check. Friendly, but cool reception at the entrance? Check. The menu has changed quite drastically, but that was to be expected and perhaps welcomed. You basically have a limited choice of appetizers and entrees for a reasonable fixed price. You can add some "luxe" items at an uncharge. They've also added a wines by the glass option using Coravin, a closed dispensing system to render a glass at a time from premium bottles. Ah, a 2010 Brunello! Wonderful. It took a few minutes for the waiter to get to me, but I ordered a glass. At $50+ a glass, this is not an everyday option, but what the heck? The waiter returns after a very long 15 minutes. He starts the process of infiltrating the bottle tableside when I notice the vintage on the bottle. 2012. I inquire, since 2010 was a great year for Brunello, 2012 not so much. He seems a bit thrown, apologizes, and says he'll go search. After another 5 minutes, he returns and says they don't have the 2010. Alright then, no big deal -- mistakes happen (though from the fact that wine had already been dispensed from the bottle, some previous patrons had obviously been unaware they were paying an ultra-premium price for the wrong vintage). I then chose a 2013 Shafer from the same Coravin list. 2013 was an excellent vintage. 10 minutes go by. The waiter returns. He shows me the bottle triumphantly. 2015. Wrong vintage again, I say. He looks perplexed; he hadn't even checked it. So, it's been 40 minutes and no one has taken my food order and I have no wine. I have to ask for bread. Short story: there was no compensation made for the wine debacle (I just accepted the 2015), the food that followed was average at best, and the Grill Room may have to wait 20 more years for me to return.

I selected the Windsor Hotel for our dining experience off of the web. We were staying at the Le Meridian. I chose the Grill room from the menu selections and the reviews. When we walked in,
what a wonderful surprise. The hotel is beautiful. The murals added so much to the decor, and the furnishings were just elegant. The patio room, where we ate, had such a lovely view. The waiter was most gracious. The food presentation was a feast for the eyes, and the quality of the food was a delight to the palette. I wish that our stay had been more than the one night. We would have loved to have returned for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Thanks for a most memorable experience.

The service was below standards. We could not find our waiter. I served water to my table.

The food was well priced except the gumbo was too spicy, and the side dishes were not anything I would recommend to friends. On the other hand, the Tuna was sensational.

Nevertheless, I left a 20% tip. I was not there to hurt anyone. I was at The Grill to celebrate my friend's birthday, not with you to be unpleasant.

Thank you for asking.

Pre Mother's day lunch. Loved it!!! Nice 2 top table 1 row off the window overlooking the driveway courtyard. Mom loved everything except the gumbo.. She likes her own better. LOL!! Everything else was above her expectations. She will be back with friends and so will I. Go for lunch Monday thru Friday, one of the best deals in town. Get the chicken marsala you won't regret it.

All 4 of us had the lunch + three. Each had a different combination of sides &/or entrees and every plate was a visual and scrumptious delight. A virtual continental bento box presented on an elegant plate. We, all, will be back with friends in tow.

2nd floor dining room overlooks the courtyard, or inside is a little more formal. Menu is small plate tasting format. We had the mushrooms and cauliflower, scallops, shrimp, crabcakes, and Wagyu filet. Wine list was very extensive. Each course was brought out seperately with enough time between servings to appreciate the presentation. Food was excellent and service very good, informed, and professional. Thank you Ross. Our favorite of the week and highly recommended.
