Food was Amazing!

We loved The Grill on the Alley. The service was quick and gracious. The food was served at the right temperature and my steak was tender and delicious. I would recommend it for small or large group parties. It is not really the type of place you would have a quiet, intimate meal - it is a very... read more

I liked the upbeat atmosphere, creative menu, and accommodating service. We enjoyed 3 courses and all were equally tasty and fun. The service was quick and gracious. I'd recommend this restaurant for a celebration.

This restaurant and bar just has to be one of the best in WLV. The food has always been very close to perfection! A bit pricey, but well worth the expenditure. The service is crisp and professional. Plus, their bar is great! Nice, clean and streamlined. A great place for a casual discussion with friends or a business meeting. And...... More

Horrible service, good and an overpriced menu. We went here for dinner and walk away shaking our heads about the poor service we received and the highly inflated prices for the small sample size portions you receive. There are plenty of better choices in Westlake to visit compared to this place.

Excellent food and service. The tuna sashimi with the fried spinach is to die for. I went twice in a week because it was so good. They make great Old Fashions.

Visiting from Australia, and travelling throughout Texas & California, this was our best meal of the trip! Excellent personalised service with suburb meals - the desert was big enough for 3!

This apparently usually good restaurant could not get things right. We specifically asked that the soup be very hot. 3 of the 5 who had soups sent it back, the others sufficed with warm soup. On person has to send his meat back twice to be hot. Lamb chop sauce was overpowering. It took three asks to get bread and... More

$440 later I walked away underwhelmed and puzzled. How can a high end restaurant serve such very, very average food at that price? Even if we have paid 1/2, it still would have been average. Three ordered highly recommended specials -- Kansas City steak and Mediterranean fish. The actual fish was mostly flavorless and even special preparations on it were... More

Reserved through OT. This had been my go to as the best restaurant in the Conejo Valley, but no longer based on dinner earlier Monday night. Three stars rather than four is due to my expectations for this restaurant. Ordered soup and mushroom side dish as appetizers. Soup was very very good, mushrooms did not come unitl dinner.

We can't say enough good things about Grill on the Alley. The food is consistently fantastic, and the service is head and shoulders above the rest. Tait is our favorite bartender, and because of his demeanor/professionalism/personality, we ALWAYS choose to sit in the bar. This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants!
