The Grant Grill offers a fresh approach to fine dining, elevating California cuisine with seasonal inspirations and creative execution. Start your day with Chef Sam Burman's signature breakfast dishes such as the South of the Border Chicken Migas. Meet colleagues for a business lunch that includes the Grant Grill's famous Mock Turtle Soup. Celebrate a romantic date night dinner sharing the 38 Day Dry Aged Ribeye for two with the Sommelier's selection of wine pairing. No matter what brings you to Grant Grill, we guarantee a memorable dining experience. From the sumptuous surroundings set inside a National Landmark to the fresh California cuisine, Grant Grill carries a tradition of excellence throughout. Renowned for shaking up some of the nation's best cocktails, the adjoining Lounge boasts a unique Gaslamp Quarter nightlife experience. The stars of the Lounge menu are Grant Grill's signature, hand crafted cocktails which include their very own 100 Day Barrel Aged Centennial Manhattan and a rotating collection of seasonal concoctions like the holiday's "Smashing Pumpkin" (as featured on The Food Network).

Amazing!

Was very impressed with the menu. The food was amazing. We had a portobello mushroom grilled sandwich that was to die for.

I had a business lunch and the location chosen was Grant Grill. It is a wonderful place to have a 'power lunch' as many movers and shakers from city government as well as business professionals meet here. The food was excellent, service was fantastic and just a great experience. I tend to not like a lot of fuss so tend... More

Really there isn't anything wrong with the grill. But for the price I expected a lot more. The cute lil mini muffins they serve each table was a lot better than my bkfst in my opinion. In fact I dont even recall what I had for bkfst a couple of weeks after my stay because it wasn't very memorable. The... More

The selection , presentation and quality were exceptional. Finding a parking spot in the commercial zone (cool after 6p.m.!) was a great start but they offer valet. You also get 20% off if you have Symphony Hall tickets and we were going to Harry Connick Jr. We also ran into Conan in the bar!

The food and drink we're amazing. The service was exceptional. The history of the restaurant and hotel are rarely seen in the U.S.

Four of us went for Sunday brunch at the Grant Grill. It was a sit-down meal and not a buffet brunch. The options were varied, and everything we got was terrific, from the healthy meal (fruit & Greek yogurt) that one of our number ordered to the heartier, artery-clogging, delicious breakfast I got. :-) A terrific meal, and also a...

Good wine, good staff, marginal food. Had a fish dish that was shockingly flavorful while, on the other side of the coin, I had high expectations for the pasta appetizer that was shockingly bland.

This was a nice place for a quiet drink, but I wouldn't suggest dinner. There were no choices for vegetarians and the dessert that I had was uninspired.
