This is one of several visits we have had to La Griglia. We were first introduced to this very fine establishment as a guest of a good friend about a year ago. Last Saturday, August 10th we brought some guests of our own. The service, the food, the creativity, the fine wine selection made for a terrific evening with our friends. La Griglia is a delight.

Great food as always and a very entertaining waiter. The noise level however was awful and several times we were going to ask to be moved (which we knew would not happen) but decided against it.
Have been there several times and this was the first time it was simply okay and that is all because of the noise level.
Food was and is fantastic !

We have been to La Griglia several times and have never been disappointed. Although it is 45 minutes away
it is very much worth the trip! We have brought friends and family to dine there and everyone enjoyed the food, the setting and the service. Emilio, a wonderful waiter, always greets us warmly and remembers which cocktails we enjoy. He is a gem! Of course the food is top notch.....fresh and flavorful, and beautifully presented. La Griglia is a sophisticated restaurant in a pleasant setting. It is worth the trip!

Business meeting dinner. Second time going to La Griglia for this meeting. It was specifically requested by the host, after having such a great experience the first time. The food was on point, the service was thoughtful and it was a positive experience, once again. Thank you LG and staff for accommodating us.

It was a special evening - any wine over $150 was half price. Given the superb Italian wine list that the restaurant maintains, this is always an opportunity to try a truly grand Italian wine, and we were happy to do so again.

It was straight down the middle good Italian food. Not too adventurous but tasty. The decor was slightly dated - it looked like it was remodeled about 10 years ago. The crowd was lively and seemed like the restaurant was full of regulars who love it.

We had dinner at La Griglia several times. The food and service is always good. This is a restaurant that requires you to order off the menu with no substitution. They partially fillet the fish leaving the spine and charge for a side vegetable. If you speak to the manager, you may eventually get these things waived. However, a restaurant at this price point should provide some flexibility for anyone with allergies or on a special diet without calling the manager over every time. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time we run into this issue and we won’t be back until the substitution rule is changed.

Celebrating a birthday and we chose the right place. The service was exceptional as was the food. From Caesar and Endive salads to Dover sole and bone in filet, each and every appetizer and entree came out perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Wine selection was easy because LG has an extensive wine list with choices to satisfy every palate. Each and every one truly enjoyed the dinner.

Pre Fixe Menu and regular menu so you have options. Very dignified reserved dining roon. Excellent wine list they do everything well, fish, meat, pasta. Service is professional. It's not inexpensive but it will meet the value quotient. You will feel that your received value for the money you spent and that is what you want. If I lived closer i would be here more often bur for now its a special occasion destination

Very disappointed with your hostess who was quite rude to my wife and I. We had reservations and requested a certain couple of tables. She gave us a hassle and did not honor our request. We were given a table where staff interrupted our dinner twice to adjust the hvac system and where bar crowd spilled over to our table

Great birthday celebration. The steaks and seafood were cooked to perfection. We always enjoy LG oysters and endive salad. This visit we shared the signature dish/ appetizer, broiled crab cakes and they were awesome. Wine list is extensive with something for everyone. Service is thoughtful and on top of their game.

Always great food and service at LG. The bone in filet is a must try. Start off with some oysters and crab cakes, split a great endive salad with a nice bottle of Quilt and you have the makings of a great dinner. The staff is ever present without being intrusive and they always make our dining experience care free.
