My swordfish was raw, our friends salmon had bones in it... we were celebrating our husbands birthdays and waitress brings a piece of cake with no candles, no knife to cut it and soup spoons to eat it!!!... really??? Finally had to call manager over to rectify this.

Was there a few years ago and it is still great. We ordered 4 different entries and all were excellent and worth the price. Very noisy in the middle of things but worth it. Service
was excellent even though the restaurant was totally full.

My request to the waitress was for rare salmon that was not cold in the center. So medium rare, right?? But at other restaurants I find that when I order Medium Rare, it is usually too well done for me. So after telling my waitress this, she presented me with a PERFECT MEDIUM RARE salmon. Thank you!

The menu, service and food is great. Matched with the decor it is our go-to restaurant. Try the Pork Chops!

I usually like their swordfish. Not tonight. It was on the summer menu and the piece was a tail end of fish. It was fatty and fishy.

Had a delicious dinner at The Grille on Congress .
The valet, hostess, server Lori, and owners were all as amazing as was the food.
We started with an egg roll appetizer and tuna appetizer. The cole slaw served with the tuna was incredible( a bit spicy) as was the tuna.
The duck was cooked to perfection( skin so crisp and meat was tender) as was the snapper that was seasoned well .I ordered the crabmeat shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. The shrimp were perfect and the cocktail sauce was delicious .Portions were enormous as well. I can't wait to return.🤗

We are so happy that it is off season. We can now enjoy going to the Grille on Congress without
waiting. During the season, they are not great about honoring reservations and nor do they care. Our dinners were good, and service was great. During the Florida Season be prepared to
wait. The place is small, noisy, and understaffed. We only go in the summer months.

We enjoy The Grill on Congress frequently and have never been disappointed with their food. We can always count on a delicious meal. Our waitress was absolutely delightful and very attentive to our needs. And the biscuits they serve before the meal are so yummy. I would highly recommend The Grill on Congress.
