A three-month renovation has expanded the original restaurant layout to create a new open floor plan that seamlessly transitions the restaurant from day to night. Erie Grill makes a statement with modern decor. Following lunch, the restaurant transitions itself into a lounge-like dining and drinking atmosphere by revealing liquor selections behind the bar, showcasing a vast wine selection, and softening lighting for the evening hours. The menu offers a variety of crave-able Contemporary American cuisine that encompasses both coursed meals and smaller plates to share at a range of price points. Executive Chef John Freezee and Sous Chef Doug Dake imaginatively utilize seasonal ingredients to present the finest in regional cuisine; popular dishes include Steak Tartare Pizza, Duck Meatballs, and Rabbit Sausage with Orecchiette.

To start, I had coupons for free breakfast and $10 off coupon due to being a Platinum Member. I sat down for breakfast on both days to a relatively full restaurant. I was immediately greeted and ordered my food along with prop next to me. I presented my coupon and I could clearly see the "disappointment" in the faces of... More

I enjoy an excellent glass of wine when I go out, and The Erie Grill certainly offers that! It is a limited menu, however, so while I might not mind trying something adventurous, my husband is definitely more all-American in his food selections. It is a relatively limited menu, but the atmosphere will make for an enjoyable experience no matter... More

Easily one of the best in the area. Menu is not overly large, but well-chosen variety. Daily features are always worth ordering. Cozy and elegant with a nice view of the Erie Canal. Service is top-notch also. Inviting bar with a small but well-chosen array of local brews on draft. Highly recommended.

My mother really wanted to go to brunch at the Erie Grill. I agreed despite having a few negative experiences previously. What a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious! I had one of the best brunch experiences ever. Our waiter was fantastic and we all agreed this truly was a five star experience!

I had lunch at the Erie Grill on a Friday afternoon. The service was not what I would have hoped. The waitress had no clue about wine but the bar tender was very good. We waited over 30 minutes for our food. Three of us ordered the chicken cutlet which was enormous and looked beautiful but was strangely bland. The... More

Beautiful contemporary atmosphere. All new since my last visit. Service was very friendly as well as professional and efficient. The menu offered a variety of choices and ample gluten free items. We both chose salads and found them to be fresh, well presented and tasty. Certainly will return.

We both had a cup of the soup of the day, a nice cauliflower cheddar, I had a grilled octopus and artichoke salad and my daughter-in-law a fish sandwich. We each had a weak Bloody Mary, as well.
