“Noisy and expensive, not very nice food, but crowded with fancy people”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Excellent location, nice decor, open windows, by the river. But extremely noisy, hard to maintain a good talk. The choice of wines were good, i'm afraid food wasn't the same: we were 5, ordered different meals, and everyone regretted being there. It was ridiculously expensive.

“Nice place, good drinks, terrible meat.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I always wanted to check out the grill royal by myself as I read so many contrasting reviews and heard many things about this place so, finally, last night I had a chance to go. The place is very nice, located in friedrichstrasse, convenient to many central hotels. Definitely a hip place, crowded with nice people from the fashion week. Seating is not very comfortable. The three of us got squeezed into a table for two so it was impossible to stretch legs. On the good side, service is top notch and the drinks are very good for german restaurant standards. Now the bad part. Unfortunately, meat was horrible. The menu is pretty extensive and we ordered three different cuts to share: pomeranian sirloin, bavarian filet an australian wagyu (wait a moment: isn't wagyu supposed to mean "japanese beef"?) entrecote (very expensive). Now, cooking temperatures were pretty consistant (all a little overcooked) but the actual meats were served too cold to be "medium". The wagyu was by far the worst. Very bad taste. The bavarian was so-so. Pomeranian not good at all. Sides are very small (we got "homemade" - read "frozen") potatoes, green beans and chantrelle mushrooms, all pretty bad. The "house" steak sauce was also tasting industrial, not good at all. No dessert. We preferred to survive. High check is standard so that was no surprise. Go for a drink and the decor (nice, modern) but forget the food.

“delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Had dinner there after a long day of sight seeing. The service was attentive and the food was brilliant. Only thing is you get very cosy with your neighbours - the sofa seats are quite cramp... and when it get super busy the waiters have to look after quite a big section and the service started to get delay...

“A seat next to the river is a must!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We were there during the "Stop Homophobie" water parade, which added the memorable experience. I didn't enjoy the codfish special but appetizers and drinks, recommended by our knowledgeable and personable waiter, were fantastic.
