the ahi tuna was seared to perfection. The cherry and green apple vodka with club soda was delicious. Their lobster salad was incredible. My chicken piccata was amazing. Everything that touched my lips was worth devouring.

We used to go here every Sunday evening. They changed the staff and menu and will not see us again! Food is not good at all and the things We enjoyed the most are gone.

We've used City Grille restaurant for a baby shower and felt the service was great. Staff were very accommodating and offered a nice variety of options. We will definitely plan our next event!

When we eat at City Grille I consistently order the sea bass because it is delicious. This is a great place to eat, drink, chat. Not the place to watch a game on TV. Good location, uniquely decorated. Great for date night dinner and drinks.

The City Grill is the Jefferson Street Inn's onsite restaurant. The place is nice. Decent decor and mainly hotel guests. The small bar area has five draughts and a decent wine list. The menu has a decent cross section of proteins and veggies. Yes - it's a "decent" place. I had the steak and asked for it to be done... More

Tables were jammed together, and often dirty dishes gathered on tables as guests left. In the middle of this space long tables were pushed together... More

On Monday, the 10th, a friend and I decided to go to City Grille for dinner. I have dined here in the past and haven't been that impressed by the service, but I keep wanting this place to be great so I gave it another shot. We were promptly seated in the dining room and placed in the care of... More
