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!

Recently we stayed at the US Grant and used Opentable to book reservations which worked well. Restaurant opens at 5:30. Come smartly dressed but not required. Dining room and attached lounge/bar nicely decorated, elegant and upscale. Service by both the lounge and restaurant staff was excellent especially from Sergio and Natalie. We had dinner twice and found that both servers... More

We stayed at the hotel the night we ate at the grill. I usually avoid hotel restaurants, but this one was not an afterthought as so many are. Excellent food and service.

I'm calling this more of an 'experience' than just a meal. Yes I thought the food was delicious - we actually had dinner and breakfast here. However I think the top-notch service and Decor elevated this to the next level. The live music Saturday night was such a great addition - highly recommended! As far as the food itself -... More
