Our Executive Chef Robert Scaffedi has over 10 years in the restaurant industry, including four years here at Grille 54. Many of our recipes come from his Grandmother, Maria, back in Italy. Not in the mood for Italian? Try our Chilean Seabass, hand-cut in house, or maybe one of our U.S.D.A. Prime Steak selections. We cook everything with oak in our wood-burning grill. Next we invite you to experience our exquisite sushi from our Executive Sushi Chef Mark Varty, who has been with our company since its inception. Round out your Grille 54 journey with a great bottle of wine. We proudly feature over 75 hand-selected wines from around the globe. Ladies enjoy Free Grey Goose Specialty Cocktails every Wednesday from 6-7pm. Plus each week ladies can sign up for their chance to win a purse valued at $500 to be given away the last Wednesday of the month.

Great neighborhood joint!!

Grill 54 is a great neighborhood pub - as in what you either remember going to back in the day or hearing about/seeing your parents, uncles, etc. go to. It is definitely bar-food and drinks focused - which is fine. The best bets are the happy hour specials - wings are delicious (jabanero... read more

Visited for the first time to partake in a Saturday evening dinner with friends. Enjoyed the varied menu, but found it interesting that the menu for a restaurant with "grill" in the name contained half sushi selections. Actually, there weren't really that many "grilled" items. Split the lobster roll appetizer with my husband. It was excellent. For $11, we received... More

I've frequently dine at Grille 54, I've had wonderful meals and excellent service here. I invited a friend for Sunday brunch, an altercation occurred at the bar with a female patron. I asked my waitress who was the gentleman behind the bar verbally berating the female patron, she said he was the owner! After he led the patron out of... More

To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld, they know how to take the reservation, but not keep the reservation. My mom lives in an assisted living facility close to this restaurant, and Grille 54 seemed to stand out from the surrounding chain restaurants. We went several times last year and had a nice time. However, the last three times we had brunch reservations,... More

Grille 54 is definitely one of the Best of the Bay! Vibrant atmosphere with amazing menu and great service. 2 kitchens bring options of Full Sushi Bar menu or a wood-fired grill for amazing Steaks, Seafood and Italian options. Great bar scene and perfect for couples or the family.

I love visiting Grille 54 because we always get great service, and the food is always really good. I like what the Chef is doing in the kitchen with his/her team. I am disappointed that the Beef Carpaccio is off the happy hour menu along with the kobe beef sliders. Why did you lose such excellent items? Then - let's... More

We went to the restaraunt at 845pm. There were a few people in the bar area. A staff member came to greet us. We asked what time they closed and he said kitchen closes at 10pm but it is closed now. So although closing is at 10 pm I guess the staff randomly decides when it does close. I wonder... More

My husband and I love this neighborhood restaurant. Anytime he's craving sushi we end up at Grille 54. The spinach bread is one of our favorite appetizers. The restaurant is very clean, the service is great, and food is always delicious.

Worst yet!!! After telling us that the place was under new ownership/management, our server/ manager finally took our order. The new menu had fewer pages (good), but higher prices (bad). The restaurant wasn't busy at all, but the service was so slow, you would have thought it was crowded. The server didn't even apologize for the long waits between orders.... More
