Food was better than anticipated. Date night special was good value

Wait staff was thorough, but we felt rushed to finish as she seemed ready to get through with her shift soon after we showed up for our 6:45 reservation

Always my favorite when I am downtown. I always feel welcome and have a great meal with fantastic service. The only downside is I spend too much on my way out of the store!

I have always loved the food in The Griil, but was sorry to see some things have changed. I often have order the chicken paillard, and it was no longer on the menu. The waitress did say they still make it ‘just a little different’.
The dish consisted of two pieces of perfectly cooked grilled chicken (not flattened), with a strange pile of arugula salad (w/ a few cherry tomatoes and powdery parmesan coating). For $22 I would have rather have had my husband’s delicious french dip sandwich ($18). In general, the menu seemed shorter, and not as interesting.

We still had a very nice lunch, but the restaurant just seemed a little tired...

The noise level was not "energetic" as I was allowed to register in the previous section. It was like trying to talk in a bowling alley. Despite very fine service, decent food and prices, I will not be subject my ears to such a din. No, not "energetic."

Super happy with the way they split our salad and entree and plated it so nice. Took awhile to get someone to come to our table, even with water. I felt like they seated us in the bar because there were just two of us, even though we made reservations. It was one of the bartenders that served us.

I asked for my caesar salad to be lightly dressed, and it was overdressed. Also, some of the romaine leaves were brown, and the "croutons" were just tiny little crumbles. It was not a good salad.

It just wasn’t worth it. Our waiter never came back to check on us. My daughters food was cold. It was disappointed considering we spent $80 on three meals and one was a kids meal. We were heading to the paramount for Lion King and we were almost late because our server was so slow or overwhelmed, one of the two. Disappointed to say the least.

When I worked downtown I used to eat at the Grill at least a couple times a week. I've been retired for three years and came back for the first time in a while to have lunch with my wife and her father.
The portions are smaller, the prices are higher and the menu has changed and not necessarily for the better. I had the crispy chicken sandwich and it was dry and over cooked. My father in law had the salmon salad and the piece of salmon was so small it was barely noticeable on top of the greens.
It's still an OK place but it's not the same. Good for lunch. Not great.
