The ambience is like no other. It is so swanky and neat! You are seated in very comfortable chairs like no other place I have been to. The lighting is just right. They have amazing food and drinks. The service is unbeatable. They have live music- piano or guitar/singer. The music was fabulous and added an extra special touch! I... More

I ate here for Valentine's Day and enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu, which was a choose-your-own course, multi-course meal where each course was paired with a sample-sized beer or wine. Not only was the food among the best I have ever tasted in a restaurant, it was super fresh (salad tasted like it was just picked from the garden) and... More

My wife and I had dinner here on January 3, while enjoying a winter “getaway” at The Heidel House. We started our evening with a drink at the bar above the restaurant. We’ve been here several times before and have always had enjoyable experiences. We each had a martini and enjoyed the fire in the fireplace while listening to the... More

Food was average. Was not impressed by the salad, as it was made with iceberg lettuce, might just be me expecting more from a high end restaurant. If you tend to have buyers’ remorse, like we often do and in this case did, then stay away. For the price, the food did not seem to impress, it wasn’t bad, but... More

Enjoyed late night cocktails in the cozy lounge. There was a pianist there on Saturday night playing the old standards. Good cocktails but small and a bit pricey.

We chose Grey Rock based on its proximity to Heidel House. The location is superb, as is the view from the restaurant. Our server seemed impatient and more than a little pushy about the chef's featured specials. I am not fond of being nagged into buying something. If I've chosen something from the menu, it is then up to the... More
