We opened our doors on November 13, 2001 and since that time, our ever-widening circle of loyal customers consistently tell us we are among the most sophisticated and welcoming establishments in the Lehigh Valley.
This is our "go-to" restaurant for special occasions. We have never been disappointed with the food, the service, and the overall dining experience.
Attend for a business meeting and informed the server of time constraints. Waited 25+ minutes for food to be served
My halibut was not fresh and the rice that came with it was undercooked. The waitress cleared off my drink without asking if I needed another one.
What a pleasant surprise discovering Grille 3501! My wife and I come up to this area of PA every other month and stay at a nearby hotel. While at our room we searched for a place to eat and were intrigued by the positive reviews and description of Grille 3501 so we gave it a try. The menu offered a nice mix of varied fare, and all looked so tempting. Ordered the ostrich steak and my wife the lobster, which did not disappoint. Fantastic meal as were the drinks and desserts. Service was prompt and courteous, and the general ambiance was just right. This place is already favorited on our Google maps so we can easily find it next time.
Quiet and welcoming restaurant with amazing food! Would recommend for sure
First off, I must compliment the chef - the meal was amazing. The appetizers were excellent, the seafood bisque was delicious, the lobster salad is fresh and flavorful, and the drinks here are made VERY well. Awesome Manhattan. Thanks Tom!
Allison is an outstanding server. Competent and attentive.
We arrived at 5pm, a little early to avoid the crowd.
Sadly, in my reservation I requested a table for two for a date night, and asked for a quiet area. Twenty minutes into our meal, a screaming child was seated next to our table. We were confused because there were so many other tables available in the restaurant and there was no apparent reason for the child to be seated right next to us in the corner.
In any event, we requested the check earlier then we would have liked. Great food and service. We would have stayed longer and spent more money if we weren’t next to a child screaming and throwing things in the restaurant. In my opinion, the hostess could have used much better judgement.
The food was very good. I had ostrich with root vegetables and kimchi Brussels sprouts which tasted great together. The sauce was red pepper based but I would have preferred a red wine based sauce. My husband had the short ribs and a very generous portion. The food is always great here.
Food (drinks, appetizers and entrees) were great, very delicious, full of flavors and juices, but decerts are okay, did not wow'ed me at all, typical. We went there for the food only for our anniversary - atmosphere were little disappointed: I felt like we were at Westminster's senior living cafeteria, missing the young vibe - may be it's just Thursday night...
The mushroom leek soup was disappointing...not very flavorful. 1 diner felt his halibut was over cooked. But the short ribs were very good as was the Brussels sprouts appetizer! The duck entree was good...not exceptional.
Excellent as always; good wine prices by bottle
Pre-concert dinner with old friends. Our waitress Gina was excellent ! Thanks for a great dining experience !!!
Menu was very limited, And food was not that great
My boyfriend and I came here for our 5 year anniversary so we decided to splurge on ourselves. The bartender was fun and engaging and our waitress was very nice, helpful, and listened to our requests. The food was delicious, highly recommend the filet mignon! Overall we had a lovely time and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to celebrate.
From appetizers to dessert, everything was perfect! Our server was so professional and attentive. Great place!!!
The food and service were great. The check was very reasonable too. I will definitely go back.
Loved the seabass!! We were glad it was added for the evening !! Would have like to see a more rounded menu of choices but all in all a
very nice evening! Yummy!
Always good! This is one of our favorite places to have a date. Food and service are always fantastic. It can get a little noisy at times.
Food was fantastic. I had the sea bass special and it was superb. We brought my son and daughter-in-law with us for their anniversary dinner. She had lobster tails and my son had filet mignon. Quality was outstanding, and portion size was perfect. We have been there several times and recommend it highly. We prefer to eat in the dining room where it is a bit more quiet than the loft or the bar. Outside is also great.
I was excited to try Grille 3501, but much of the food was disappointing, the service at our table was not great, and the noise level was extremely high. Maybe younger people can hear each other with all the noise echoing off the floor and walls, but if you're middle-aged or older, it will be challenging.
First time visiting, loved the atmosphere, decor, service was terrific & food was delicious! Will certainly return & recommend to others!
The service expedient and very good
While our waitron was cranky, the meal was delivered efficiently. We got a lot of complex decisions done in a quiet environment. I had foie gras and seared duck breast with a Pinot which was very nice.
The other patrons seemed to be having a great time at the outdoor bar as a warm summers evening.
Food was amazing, atmosphere was incredible and the service was great!
This restaurant is so cute. A hidden gem in Allentown! Food was amazing, service was perfect!
Loft area very noisy !
We had a great friend get together at Grille 3501. The food was excellent, and between the six of us, we touched on all an array of meal options from Tuna, Lobster and Salmon, to Pork and Filets. I personally had the tuna, and my meal was excellent. My husband loved his salmon, and had a taste of the pork, which he said was absolutely awesome. Our server, Willow was top notch once we got settled and started. It’s been a while since we ate here, and the on,y challenge is being able to hear one another. It’s a bit loud. But our food was great!
We'd come again - but we think the barman does not understand the Vieux Carre cocktail!
I was hosting a party of 12. When the bill came I was in conversation and did not see that a tip was already included, hence I left a tip on the bill that included the tip. Within 30 minutes of leaving I received a voicemail letting me know they were reversing the tip I had written in. They have always had great food and atmosphere, but this was above and beyond my expectations
Fantastic all five of us had great food.
We went for our anniversary and sat out on the patio on a very nice evening. Food and drinks were very good.
The food was fantastic as always. The service was not. Our waitress seemed completely flat and disinterested. Our food came out staggered, also took a long time for drinks. But we Will always go back for the food/taste and ambience😊
Grille 3501 has always been one of our favorites for special occasions. It never disappoints.
My family loves this place! Definitely our go to place for a special occasion.
I was very disappointed that they changed the tuna tartare.
Grill 3501 always delivers a great dining experience. The food is innovative, the cocktails are expertly made and the service is wonderful. you won't go wrong dining her for lunch or diner.
I mentioned it was a birthday when I placed the reservation and they remembered and added a candle to my wife’s dessert!
Food is consistently delicious! Prepared beautifully and served hot. Ingredients are always fresh. When busy, which is quite often, service can be a bit slow, but definitely worth the wait!
Great food and great service! Everything was flavorful and the waitress was very professional.
Food was amazing.......come here if you appreciate flavor over quantity.
Ambiance was great too.....not too quiet or loud, just right
My second visit. Very nice meal, a number of unusual items on the menu that I would like to try.
