Busy but yummy!

This place is SUPER busy. Don't expect to walk in & get seated immediately! HIGHLY recommend making reservations at least TWO weeks ahead! Especially if you have more than 2 people. My husband & I have come to LAGrill and waited at the bar. If you are not at any rush (date night), then you could... read more

Open kitchen (with wood burning hearth) California cuisine with a capable, friendly wait staff. Upscale bar area is popular with the locals and can get crowded after 8pm but not overwhelming the restaurant. (Nice to have a choice outside the Castro Street Mountain View scene where you struggle for a parking spot on most nights. The San Antonio street area... More

This place seems very popular with lots of people waiting for tables. As I knew it was the same chain as Houston's, I was eager to go try their baby back ribs. Lo and behold after a late start, we had mediocre service and there were very few choices. There were no baby back ribs, only beef ribs which looked... More

I went with a friend on a Friday night seeking out a serious steak and matching heavy red wine. The wait was 1 hour 45 minutes which was OK for us, it was early and coffee beckoned. The process for booking a table at the door, estimated wait time, getting an automated SMS that the booking was confirmed through to... More

tired decor, menu never changes, poor services... The only thing that place has going for it is the location.

Food is above average, as is their over-priced bill. A local hangout if you are looking to make friends. Not good for families with children.

Perfect place to hang out with friends. Though I am not a wine drinker, it goes well with steaks: they have a long list of wine

Tips first: 1. Make reservations as far ahead as you can or you'll end up with a 4:15 (or 9pm) seating if they even have available tables. 2. Bring your favorite bottle of wine as the first bottle has no corkage fee. Food is predictably good although the selection is limited. Service is excellent and expect to bring home a... More

This is a great dinner venue - be prepared to have a few local brews or mixed drinks before dinner while you wait for a table, if you didn't make a reservation. The atmosphere is very sports-bar-esque but the place is roomy and well designed. The food ranges from bar starters to grilled pork chops to rotisserie chicken. I didn't... More
