The Grill on the Alley was opened in 1984 as a living tribute to the great American grills of yesterday. In time, it has established itself as one of the country's leading restaurants, praised by writers across the country. The menu is classic American grill - prime steaks, fresh seafood, traditional dishes such as chicken pot pie or meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and homemade desserts. Named to The Fine Dining Hall of Fame by Nation's Restaurant News, The Grill is home of the entertainment industry's "power lunch," but is also open for dinner seven days a week.

A little disappointed in the food quality. Presentation was a little off not quite what I remember the cookery the food was decent but it just seemed like it lacked quality or inspiration. Still a great meal but I believe that for the money you can find much better options. Service was very good the maître d’ and the host were exceptional in the server was good as well but again I feel that the food has become extremely dated.

We are frequent customers of the Grill on the Alley. We generally find that the waiters are quite attentive and that the service is quite good. We were very disappointed with the service at our recent visit. The service provided by our waiter Oscar was not up to The Grill's standards. We ordered a cocktail from him that never came. He never came back to check on us during the meal and we had a difficult time finding someone to refill our water glasses or bring us ketchup. We would return to The Grill only if Oscar was not our waiter.

Wonderful to return to the Grill. Kathy is our server already three times and we enjoy her friendliness and, of course, the food. The oysters, this time, were not great, but the steak tartare, the soft shell crabs and the short ribs, oh, the short ribs. We'll be back! Great cocktails and wine as well. And we love booth 104, our favorite!

Extremely disappointing that at 7:30 PM they were out of two menu items, one of which (white fish) is part of the regular menu. In fairness, they did “make it right” by honoring the white fish price for a more expensive alternative selection.
That the restaurant is transitioning ownership seemed very obvious

I took my friend to The Grill for his Birthday and we were treated like “Royalty”! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food and drinks were fantastic as well. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

We always love the Grill. Hands down one of the best customer service in BH. We were celebrating our Son’s birthday. Everyone was very gracious and came to sing when the cake was served.

Very much a ‘locals’ hangout. Because of time change we ate a little earlier then usual. Staff knew the patrons and visa-versa. Great food and service. Friendly staff.

Food, service and and overall experience were excellent. It all starts with Hector at the door. He greets you warmly and makes you feel like you belong. Our guests celebrated their anniversary which we advised when making the reservation. Waiter did not have to be reminded, he handled it perfectly.

I love lunch at the Grill. The look of the place, welcoming Pamela, the fun waiters...then there are
the great cocktails and food! I particularly like the John Dory which is a fish you don't find often.
I took to friends visiting from Florida and they both loved it as well.

It is a true LA gem !!

The food is excellent and there are choices for all tastes. The food was prepared to each of our requests. The service was very good. The noise level was very high, so speaking across of the table was just surrounded by the noise level.

The Grill on the Alley offers a cool "old-school" setting with good drinks and comfortable booths. Unfortunately, the food is boring (even for a traditional steakhouse) and undistinguished, and the price-quality ratio makes it hard to justify a repeat visit. I might go there for a business lunch, but there are many better choices for a nice dinner out.

Great location! Food is worth it! Shop on Rodeo drive then enjoy a martini at the bar including cheese stuffed olives! The cheese bread is an awesome appetizer. I recommend the short ribs if you stay for dinner. Definitely make reservations. If you stay 2 hours, parking is free.
