We just had the best meal in the year and a half that we have lived in Montgomery. From the service from Mike , who knew every detail of the menu, to the ambience and most definitely the food it was the best restaurant experience we've had here. I started with the caprese salad- perfectly ripe tomatoes, great cheese, then... More

We arrived a little late with no reservation but were promptly seated. Excellent ambiance. They were out of some specials and even some of the menu items. They did however have an outstanding steak and baked potato. Salad greens were crisp and the house made cheese dressing was a great accompaniment. I'll be back.

Each time I visit this wonderful restaurant, the fare is world class and the service is excellent. I have been exceedingly pleased with every meal I have been served. The chef is innovative and knows how to make dishes that are a cut above all others in the area. Bravo!

The surf and turf was excellent, and enjoyed every bite. Only whine is about the vegetables-- they are only decorative. I don't consider four transparent slices of veggies deserving a mention on the menu. I enjoy vegetables as part of an entrée. So, while presentation may be important, give some consideration of content as well. Thanks.

We had reservations for 7:00 on a Saturday night. We arrived and were seated immediately. Only a few minutes until the waiter arrived with the specials and took our order. The reason he gave the specials first was they only had limited quantity on some of the specials and he wanted to give us a chance to have one held... More

Since our lunch was a bit early, we decided to have dinner a little early too. I picked out the “City Grill” (currently enjoys a TripAdvisor rating of #7). This was a great choice. The place is nicely appointed, and rather quiet (this is important for folks with hearing impairment). Michael, our waiter, took good care of us. And the... More

Servce was exceptional, drinks were perfect, a great wine list and the food was a gastronomical delight. What more could one expect? All reviewes are 100% accurate.

First: The word "Grill" tends to point me to restaurants that are more in line with short order food. This is not the case. This "Grill" is what I would consider fine dining and on the high end scale for Montgomery. If you are planning to eat here, make sure you have reservations. Seating is limited and apparently from my... More
