The Grill on the Alley Aventura is located in the Aventura Mall, which is ranked as the number one shopping destination among international visitors. 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.

Mixed emotions about this place

Place is pretty good. We enjoyed our dinner with friends. Service is quick,polite,professional, nice. Atmosphere reminds NYC style restaurants with white table cloths and darker walls. It's all make area look intimate. Restaurant has good choice of wine. Food is good, but sometimes it depends what... read more

We have been coming to the Grill for quiet a long time and believe this is one of the best happy hour places in Aventura. Food and Drinks are excellent as well as the Service! Adam is one of the newest Manager in the restaurant and is showing lots of good customer service and professionalism. Although every single employee are... More

The food was wonderful. The steak was prepared perfectly, the crab cakes had a ton of crab, and the kids mac and cheese was incredible. The service is the star here. The waiter we had was so great. He went out of his way to make our family feel welcome and he was so humble and kind. Very professional and... More

The Grill is a first class restaurant, that never fails to impress... but not to be missed is Happy Hour at the bar. Danny behind the bar dazzles. Jeff, Adam, and Shaun have taken Management up quite a few notches, and we love, love, love going there. Rumor has it that a new Executive Chef has some tricks up his... More

It is such a rarity to find a really good, proper, restaurant inside a shopping mall. This rare treat awaited us in the Aventura Mall in Miami with the discovery of The Grill on The Alley within that mall. A delightful smell of wood smoke wafted around us as we were impeccably served delicious food. We spoke to the head... More

I do not trust restaurants at the mall but I was impressed with the quality of the menu and the bartender can prepare anything you ask for. If you are shopping and do not want to go to the food court, this is a good choice.

The Grill on the Alley is not what it used to be. It has a lovely interior and is a great escape from the busy, crowded scene of the Aventura Mall. We used to love this place, but sadly, it has changed. The service is still attentive and the menu remains pricey. I ordered beer battered fish and chips and... More

While inside the restaurant has a nice feeling to it, the food was average at best and the service quality was even lower although we didn't visit when it was very busy.
