I am not from the Allentown area so I always rely on someone else in our party to pick a good place. This time my customer did a great job. From the moment you walk in you are greeted and seated. the restaurant is simple but updated in a modern fashion. The menu was wonderful, not what I would have... More

This was my second trip to Allentown this year and I was so excited to find such a pleasant restaurant. Allentown is full of small diners and chain restaurants, it was good to find something unique. The decor was contemporary, service was prompt and very professional. And the food was extremely good. The presentation was also very professional. I just... More

It is a very enjoyable place with some interesting proposals in the menu (Thai lobster soup was very tasty and tuna was nicely served). Still there's room for improvement considering the price range: service, even if very nice was a bit slow.

This is one of those restaurants that tries to be upscale in price but lacks the service to match. Don't get me wrong... I liked my meal ( at $150/couple I had better). But the service was slow.. 2 and half hours is lengthy especially without dessert. The entrees were appealing and imaginative though so I would go back... Just... More

We looked at reviews and decided to go here while on holiday from CA. We are used to high end dining, this place certainly isn't that. Steaks were ok, but didn't justify the premium price, and desserts were rather sparse. Taken together with a dull atmosphere, we won't be recommending to friends and colleagues. Disappointing.

We decided it was time for a special dinner, and the hotel clerk directed us to Grille 3501. The TA reviews were a little mixed, but we decided to give it a try. We were glad we did. Our server, Jen, was friendly and cordial but not at all intrusive. She was a definite plus. My husband had the boneless... More

The Grille at 3501 is a decent place, but not my favorite. The food is good- but not awesome. My husband and I went during June 2014. I ordered the lobster tails ($34) it comes with a fried potato cake (tasted as if it was a fair food ) and bok choy. I replaced the boc choy with asparagus (got... More

Rude staff, food was OK but nothing special, price was not relative to the quality. The decor didn't flow and is aged. Wouldn't return

No atmosphere in what is a pretentious restaurant attempting to be much more upmarket than it really is. Grumpy and poor service, much better options available locally. Certainly won't be back.

Nothing special, menu was limited and lacked imagination. Servers were clearly under pressure and had a 'take it or leave it' atitude. Was there for a business meeting, clients were not impressed. Wont be going there again, give it a miss.
