What Insiders Are Saying
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
Food was salty
Crab Cake & Prime Rib. Excellent!
Yamulet, Ben and Adam were absolutely amazing and treated us so nicely!! Thank you for having us, we hope to be there again soon.
Beautiful and perfect dinner spot for a date ir intimate gathering
Brilliant service and food. Wonderful staff. Can’t say enough. Perfect evening
Thus restaurant is simply outstanding. Everything we had was perfect and worth every calorie, the filet, crab salad, scallops starter to name a few. The service almost feels like you have the ‘team’ all to yourself. Will definitely be back.
The lighting was way off, which had a big affect on the overall ambience. It was too dark and the Pool Room felt sad and not cozy and luxurious like it used to.
Minimal service, actually had to ask for the bread. Lack luster presentation, limited choice of items on the menu. Very bad value given the high prices. Will never go back.
The best steak in NYC and impeccable service.
Food was far better than I would expect. Not just an iconic location but also an outstanding meal. Not inexpensive but unlike some places at least here you get your money’s worth. Will definitely return
The food at The Grill is truly delicious. Presentation was beautiful. Service was impeccable. I would highly recommend The Grill
Had a 6:30 reservation and on time.
Four of us were seated at a very loud table and they kindly moved us.
However, we all felt very rushed with food delivery and hovering over to see if we were finished. We spent a great deal of money and i was very disappointed with the overall service.
I will probably will not go back again.
However, I did go to The Pool a year ago or so and it was so nice and relaxing.
Great food. Great ambiance. Great bar. Expensive. Music from the bar was rather loud. Would return.
If they run out of prime rib their signature dish on a Friday night at 8 pm they will offer you a six inch bone so you can see what you missed. You. won’t know they are selling it to you until you get the $21 charge on bill. Many more problems but that sort of explains the whole night. The wines were great though.
This is one of the best restaurants in NYC. What a terrific experience, exquisite-tasting food and incredible service. Adam R might be the best waiter we’ve ever experienced.
If you are looking for a fine dining experience that you must go to The Grill for dinner. Hands down one of the nicest restaurants I have been to. From the greeting when you check in to the your waiter to the bus staff to the manager, they make you feel welcome and impress you with everything they do. The ambiance is unbelievable, absolutely beautiful!!
The food is to impress as well. Having my prime rib carved in front of me was a nice touch. The occasion meals were excellent. They made a special for is that much more Please be aware that you do pay a nice price for this but it’s something you won’t forget
I’ll be back!
Service could have been much more attentive.
There was no relaxing, as our server kept pushing his agenda to keep our dinner moving at his own pace. Also, I anticipated pricey, but $30 for a mixed drink is a bit over the top...all while being 'hurried' through the experience. There are too many other high-end options in the city to give The Grill a second chance.
Poor service. Mediocre food. Way overpriced for the value delivered. Eating in the pool room is like being in a morgue. Won’t return.
Incredible venue and staff, food is very expensive but good. Steaks and main dish portions are huge so should have shared more.
Sat at the bar for lunch. Was the first time I found a bartender cold.
The porterhouse was huge but pretty average.
Wonderful dinner. I was very excited for the prime rib, as we had to order it a few days in advance, but I think the lamb chops were even better than the prime rib. The crab cake was top notch and we were pleasantly surprised by the endive salad (really good!). We thought the whipped mashed potatoes were underwhelming. The pasta ala press was very cool, but a little too salty for my palate. Drinks were awesome. Service was impeccable, and the place just exudes cool, but in a classic sophisticated way.
Overall, a great place to celebrate something special.
Probably the best restaurant in NYC and top 10 globally that my wife and I have ever been to. It’s very pricy, but well worth it in regards to taste, ambiance, and service. This is a must if high prices are doable!!
A wonderful meal. Prices never short on shock value but almost worth it. It’s a great place to enjoy very well prepared food. Always consistent and a delightful atmosphere. I like it better than the pool for lunch and dinner.
Beautiful restaurant with delicious food. Prices are in the stratosphere! And I didn’t like the check plopped down on the table before I asked for it.
Celebrated birthday lunch at the Pool room. Requested to be seated by the “pool” and request was honored with a beautiful table.
Shared a chopped salad which was excellent. Then we both had the grilled branzino. It was delicious and a nice sized portion. Dessert was the carrot cake. Wonderful presentation and delectable.
With 2 glasses of wine and coffee, the bill came to $200 ( not including tip). Hefty but worth it for a special lunch.
Amazing place. We loved every second of our date
A memorable meal and experience. If I could give our waiter (Adam R) six stars I would!
Gracious and approachable staff, not stuffy at all. Attention to detail was off the charts. It's expensive, which is why the "value" rating wasn't a 5. Looking forward to going back!
Less than what I expected
Was probably the best dining experience I’ve ever had.
Pure excellence. Everything spot on!
This was my first time eating at The Grill. It was a wonderful experience from the time we came in to the time we came out of the door. This is a temple of great food and top classic service. This is the place where you get what you expect!
Excelente overall, but a big but, men in short leaves t shirts ?? Horrible not even a regular shirt T shirts are for the beach no to go to the Grill
I know, business is business but more decorum would enhance the experience of many
Ps My tab for 4 persons was over $1K
From the moment we walked in till we departed the experience was sublime , yes this was a special occasion and so worth it ! The server and service was excellent , attentive to a fault ! Our appetizers were beyond delicious , we tried the oysters , foie gras ( the best we ever had ) and the pasta were a treat . Our mains were the filet mignon and my daughter had the rib eye , all delicious the sides were pretty amazing too . We stuck with cocktails through out , next time will go for the wine as their selection was awe inspiring ! Look forward to celebrating again here !
Excellent as always. We visited for thanksgiving and were happy to have our New Years celebration dinner at The grill. The staff was perfect, amazing food as always in a classic venue.
Great service experience since they open the door. Also good recommendations from the personnel.
The Grill is delicious and the service is impeccable. It is a very special place.
