Really, really good food!

It had been years since I visited Grille 3501. Their new loft area is beautiful and feels like it should be located on a mountain top at a ski resort! The drinks were delicious and the bartender was incredibly friendly. We ate in the older part of the restaurant that feels dated compared to the... read more

With the addition of "The Loft" you now have two great venues to select. The Loft is an indoor/outdoor space with a happening bar. The original restaurant remains elegant and a bit more quiet. Same great appetizers, food & wine in each. Enjoy

We sat in the Loft...very nice Summer or Winter. We had apps which were very nice. Calamari with a chili sauce, yum. For my main dish I had fish and it was dry. Not one to complain but for the high prices I deemed it necessary. I told the waitress for informational and improvement feedback. She was a but smug... More

Due to its deserved success over the past few years, the 3501 recently expanded to accommodate more diners. A much-needed second floor was added as well as outdoor tables. Appetizers are around $12 and entrees around $35, for which you get top-notch service and an excellent meal. The atmosphere is warm and inviting.

Grille 3501 has fine food and a fairly wide range of entrees. Its wine list is less extensive than I would prefer. I've enjoyed very much all the meals I've eaten here, though the prices tend to be on the more expensive side and at times, the restaurant can be rather loud. But it's definitely worth a visit or two.

Ate at the Grille 3501 during a business meeting, and the food was delicious and very filling. Even when your entrée comes to your table, the presentation was excellent! Every one of my co-workers who ordered different entrees loved their food! The desserts were out of this world. Its a really relaxing place to have dinner. Service is very friendly,... More

My wife and I have dined several times at Grille 3501. The food is excellent, but the restaurant is very noisy. Whatever you do, do not accept the table opposite the kitchen door. The staff use a cubicle just outside the kitchen door for plate set-up. We asked to be moved to another location, the request was honored, and our... More

The food at Grille 3510 is varied and well-prepared. The atmosphere is pleasant, "nice" but not stuffy, and the service is very good. I have eaten here many times and not been disappointed.
