Great food and atmosphere

The menu is diverse, high to moderate pricing, hip decor but noisy. There an outdoor area, casual bar and dining room. Love their martini flight where you can pick 4 mini-Martini's!

We were there Aug 21st, a Fri nite seated in the upstairs dining loft. The noise was deafening! We had to shout! My tuna tartar was okay and my husband's short ribs were good but the noise really spoiled the meal.

Always consistent, Grille 3501 tops the list of favorite LV restaurants. On our most recent visit, we had the braised spare ribs and crab cake apps (crab cake is done to perfection every time - lumps of crabmeat with "mango fennel slaw" so good!), and the seared rare tuna (outstanding) and lobster tails for entrees. The crispy potato cake is... More

The waitress was young, didn't know they had Stole vodka or not & she forgot my salad before entree (oriental American) My friend had app mussels in the blandest sauce I've ever had.... More

I'm in Allentown, Pa. on business and I decided to try this place, last night, because it was very well reviewed on Trip Advisor. And to be honest it didn't disappoint, the food was really good. The vibe/atmosphere was fun and lively. But what was not really explainable was the speed, or lack thereof, of service. Out waitress took a... More

We had been meaning to try this place for a while, and we were not disappointed. We were early for our reservation but got seated right away. It took a few minutes for our server to show up, but after that service was very good. The scallops were excellent, and the bass was very good as well. It's a nice... More

Count on attentive friendly service and delicious appetizers inside or on the sunny deck. Also a lovely spot for a special occasion celebration.

We were staying in Bethlehem and decided to drive over to Allentown to look around and eat dinner. Someone in our group had heard about Grille 3501 so we decided to try it. We all agreed that it was the best place we had been all week. I had the filet mignon and it was perfect at medium. It was... More

3501 us an outstanding example of what fine dining can be. It is the premiere spot in the Lehigh Valley and so it should be. The atmosphere is perfect for any occasion and the cuisine is outstanding. . The cuisine does not appear to be played with but made with love. I am anxiously awaiting my next visit
