The Grill

22 Teatral'na Str., Lviv, Ukraine
+380322354991

Improve this listing
Ranked #150 of 192 restaurants in Lviv
Price range: $10 - $20
Cuisines: American, Asian, Central American, Gastropub, Grill
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Delivery, Late Night
Description: Although it positions itself as a steak house, the restaurant concept in fact is “East and West”, a mixture of Western and Oriental cuisine. Every section of the menu is divided into “East” and “West”. Open “Soups” and you will see Minestrone neighboring Tom Yam; go to “Fish” and choose Salmon with either Thai sweet-spicy sauce, or Blue Cheese sauce; see “Pasta” and you’ll find Risotto along with Nasi Goreng. Food quality is uneven. Excellent soups and tuna steak were followed by terrible veal medallions and (although vigorously promoted by the waitress), dreadful desserts: plain “hot ice-cream” and stale hard cheesecake. Full bar. The place has two levels: the upper one near the bar is a noisy vibrant smoking area with a large TV and loud music; the lower one, in the basement, is a tranquil romantic hall, non-smoking. High range (and too expensive for this quality). Web-site in Ukrainian only.

A fun and cosy Friday evening after work atmosphere. Live music and good basic American food. Always crowded, so book at table if you are a larger group. There are both tables upstairs and downstairs.

We have been there with a company of 14 people and didn't make pre-order. Serving drinks took 1 hour. We finally got our wine... In glasses for martini! Incredible! The reason was that there is not enough of glasses in almost empty at that time place. Not to mention that they didn't have half of menu and drinks we ordered.... More

I've visited this place twice. First time recently after the opening: everything was ok, steak seemed to me like the best I've tried so far, service and waitress was attentive. Second time I was yesterday and the changes are critical: no attenttion fom the boy-waitress at all! waiting for beer and chips like forever! Dissapointed. Please do something, if you... More

You can find delicious mexican food and tasty meat dishes. We don't eat pork meat, but we were able to find another kind of meet dishes. We suprised when did not get the tortilla next to fajita! Also there is an hour limit of some food. Finally, service, quality and presentation are beautiful.

Very nice place, for the first time I thought steak is small. But it's not once I've started ate. Very tasty, I was amazed, this place is a must.

I was excited about this place and hoping for some good food. I have been twice and both times were a major disappointment.

Nice and comfy grill house, well-trained staff, nice food. Situated right in a city center, near to the most Lviv's points of interest.

Bottom line: very nice beef. We had chateaubriand at is was very good. Best beef I've eaten in Lvov ever, and quite frankly among the best I ever ate. The menu is confusing: they seem to offer everything (pizza, sushi, steak..) so it makes you wonder why they not just decide on one type of food. Have not tried the... More
