    I had to get the waiter’s attention at least 5 times. I had to request tea refills 3 times. Originally, we had Cole as our waiter, then he introduced Ryan, so Coke never returned. Our third round of Chocolate Martinis took too long to be delivered. I asked Ryan, are the martinis coming soon?

    Main dishes were good. Bread/pizza was reheated so dry and just warm. Service was good but took a very long time to be served our meal. Disappointing that I am a Laundry Select members and I had a $25 reward. Gave the server my card along with my credit card. When he came back, the reward had not been taken off. Asked about it and the server said he deferred it. We did not ask him to do that nor did he ask us what we wanted done with it.

    We went to dinner with our two daughters while in Houston. La Griglia is amazing and the service was outstanding. From the salads to the entrees to the dessert to the wine everything was perfect. Highly recommend the restaurant and you can be guaranteed your water glass will never be less than 3/4 full.

    The food was very good. However, the waiter forgot to give us the tiaramusu we ordered to-go but it was on our bill. We didn't realize it until we had already returned to our hotel and given our car back for valet parking.

    I have dined at La Griglia for years and it’s hands down my favorite restaurant. I have never had issue till this time. There was an ant on my plate and I handed it to the waiter. He did react or say anything. I asked him if he saw the ant and he said yes. No apology or anything. Then the reward is different and did not use entire reward and lose value. I was disappointed as this is my favorite place and seems like management is not valuing customers. At ant other place, appropriate action would have occurred.

    Last minute dinner idea to a neighborhood place. Had the squid fries, Dancie salad, Rack of lamb and blueberry crostata. All were good except that that the crostata shell were mushy, no crunch as I had at other restaurant. It was fine, but not what I was expecting. All in all, a very nice dinner out.

    La Griglia is one of my favorite Italian food restaurants. Unfortunately, this dinner visit was a bit below par. The entreé was a bit cold and visually, non-appealing. This visit will definitely Not deter future visits.

    Nice dinner after the play at the Alley Theater. My friend and I ordered the duck. It was too hard and dry to eat very much of it. Seafood pasta delicious; appetizer cheesecake with shrimp and crab was perfect! Tira misu was delicious. Thanks for a nice evening.

    Went here for our 5th Anniversary and absolutely LOVED it!!! Excellent service, knowledgeable staff with great recommendations, incredible tasting food from mushroom soup and shrimp and crab cheesecake appetizers to the braised beef and risotto entree. They even brought out two brownies with a happy anniversary sparkler and decorated plate and the little brownies were phenomenal! The chocolate icebox cake was amazing as well. The atmosphere was beautiful, quiet and decorated for the holidays. Excellent place to eat and spend quality time on a romantic date.

    I only give four instead of five stars because we had a 715 reservation and we’re not see that until 8 o’clock. They were really backed up. The manager was incredibly gracious, and the server in the bar area was superb. Food was terrific. But to wait for 45 minutes when we had a reservation was a real downer

    The food was amazing. Service wasn’t that great we got passed around a lot and they seated us under a leaking vent. They did not even acknowledge my husbands birthday which was on the reservation. I guess we were frowned on for bringing our children. No changing table either. I had to change my daughter on the floor. With all that being said the food was good I don’t wanna knock it for being a bad place but they could of done better. I even let them know about they leak and they did nothing and not one manager touched our table.

    The last two visits hind LaGriglia slipping bit in terms of its usual high quality. The filet was tough one one visit, and the boar chop same on another visit. Something has changed in the grilling and/or quality of meat. Drinks were a bit watery but"fixed." Has management changed?
