This was a spur of the moment Valentines Day dinner date. The staff could not be more “on it” or nicer. We had an amazing dinner, an amazing bottle of wine and a great evening.

Been dining for lunch more on a regular basis with you but the waiter that day feb 3rd for lunch was the worse service I’ve every had in any restaurant I’ve been.

He was rude! Very abrupt when asked to order, Didn’t feel safe having him as our waiter, He was touching my napkin cloth a few times and didn’t bring our our drinks until we asked three times. Made rude excuses and talked back when confronted.

Also, no hello or hi when arrived. If this is how this restaurant is during the pandemic then there are plenty others that give better service and are more appreciated.

The food was great, service impeccable and overall we had a great lunch. The only thing I didn't care for was we thought that the music was too loud. We were trying to talk business and the music interfered. I'm sure a lot of people like it, but us, not so much. Thank you for a wonderful lunch. We will be back!

Sincerely,

Great atmosphere. The bread is awesome. We could have just sat, drank wine and eaten the bread and called it night. The service was really good. Very friendly.

Ian was great and made great suggestions for dinner. The adult beverages were really good as well. The food was okay.. My salmon was a bit dry and the risotto was undercooked. But the service was great from all the waitstaff. Now, one thing that bothered me was the birthday brownie plate charge. 😳. I have never had a restaurant charge for the birthday dessert. That was my only disappointment.

This is one of our go to places to eat, we like the menu and the flavors and quality are usually consistent. The service is always really good, only one bad experience in 20+ years of dining there, which the manager addressed and hasn't been repeated. I do wish they had a bigger wine list for moderate priced wines.

Wood fired Bronzino was horrible. Plate presentation was very poor and flavor was worse. Don’t order. Service was mediocre at best.

Great service!!! Loved the food. Happy to be back in a real fine dining restaurant with a few friends and family. The server overheard someone say that is was also my anniversary (although that was not what we were celebrating at lunch) and he brought us a special dessert.

We have always enjoyed La Griglia, but this time around was an exception. Main server was not attentive, one person in our group received a different dish than what he ordered. Our waiter never checked back on us after the mains were brought out. My veal scallopini was overcooked. My wife’s pizza was drowned in cheese, which was strange for a margarita pizza. The floor manager tried to make things right. We will return, just an off night for some reason.

One Note... the manager pulled his face mask down several times until we told him to watch out for that

I have been to La Griglia many many times and overall I’ve gotten good service. Yet December 17 in the evening at La GRIGLIA was quite simply the worst service I’ve ever gotten there. And it took a long time for them to service our entrées. Enough said

Great experience, as usual. The bone-in boar chop is succulent and sherry morel sauce puts it over the top!
Attentive, professional, old-world service.
