What a great meal! From the moment we were seated until we left we had a delightful experience. The decor in the restaurant is lovely, and tables are spaced far enough apart so that you are not overhearing other conversations. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. The lunch salads & sandwiches were tasty and filling- substitutions cheerfully made. Highly... More

We had breakfast 3 days in a row (staying at the Grant) and everything we ordered between the 3 of us was high quality and very substantial. Definitely try the breakfast potatoes - baked on sea salt and then flash fried twice!

I was at The US Grant over five days and had opportunity to eat at the Grant Grill for meetings that I had during breakfast lunch dinner and a late-night event. The waitstaff, regardless of time was outstanding and every option delivered to the table, regardless of the time of day was, perfect. For late night I would highly recommend... More

The UD Grant has a beautiful lobby. It is in the heart of the Gas Lamp district in San Diego so it is close to theaters, shopping and other attractions. We went there strictly for lunch before a play at the theatre. They said they were full and would accommodate us. Apparently if you weren't guests at the hotel, you... More

This is one of the classiest eateries and bars in the downtown area. It exceeds expectations for a hotel (USGrant) restaurant. Service is impeccable and friendly. We can always find several items on the menu to attract our appetite and it always turns out even better than we could have wished. It is quiet enough for business discussions and the... More

The staff was amazing. We had a reservation for 8 and got the private room. Incredible group of wait staff that were incredibly patient. Food was good too, but staff was exceptional!

Food was ok, but server was more anxious to close than serve. Grill was almost empty when I arrived from the airport and wanted to eat. Took forever to get menus....because delay meant kitchen closed in 15 min. Left with choice of couple of appetizers (olives or French fries with aioli for dinner?) or room service. Plan on eating elsewhere.

I had lunch at the Grant Grill last week with my friends and family for my friend's baby shower. The atmosphere was amazing, the room reserved to us very exclusive and beautifully decorated. The food and drinks were also excelent, but the highlight of our experience was out server Auggie. If you go to the Grant Grill, you need to... More

This restaurant is inside the Grant Hotel. The hotel reminds me of the classy hotels in Manhattan, NY not what you would expect in San Diego. Very elegant with excellent food and great service. The entire party of 8 all enjoyed their meals and the wine list was impressive too. Highly recommended for a special night out or some romance!
