“Brilliant - apart from the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went for a birthday and the food was excellent, fresh and it looks home made. The menu has a good level of choice and there's a good set of pudding too.

The unit is very clean and there's plenty of tables. The waiters are all very friendly and not at all pushy.

It is very expensive though. The food is exceptional but it is very overpriced - great for a one off though!

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night with family celebrating my daughters birthday. It was her choice and turned out to be a very good one. Hale has a multiplicity if good restaurants therefore competition is fierce. Booked earlier in the week which I'd recommend as when we arrived on the Saturday the restaurant was really busy. We were immediately shown to our table and menus left for our perusal. A small point but there didn't seem anywhere to hang coats nor were we asked if they could hang them up.However that said the evening was excellent with each table having its own 'server' In our case a young lady who was first class. Most of us had steaks of some variety each if which was cooked to perfection. Drinks are reasonable and the restaurant had a real buzz throughout the evening. They also had live music in the form of an excellent solo pianist who played a mixture of blues/soul music which just added to a most enjoyable evening. Will certainly return again in the future.

“A Good restaurant but not the best in Hale”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The Hale Grill is definitely the 'in place' in Hale, which means it always attracts the 'in-crowd; and as such is always crowded and consequently can get very noisy. The food is undoubtedly very good, but I do prefer to eat in more relaxed surroundings. I much prefer Amba Restaurant, just along the main road (Ashley Road - it used to be the old Hale Wine Bar). The food there is of the same high standard as Hale Grill but is, if anything, slightly cheaper. The service is friendly and the clientele more mixed - ie family groups, rather than young executives on a champagne budget and footballers' wives etc.

“More interesting than the name suggests”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Nominally this is a steak bar - and you can find a fair selection of beef etc. But they do themselves a disservice with the name. There are fish and vegetarian dishes too, all prepared with expertise and served up looking most appetising. Only one of us had beef (a very tasty burger), and we loved the hake, wild mushroom tart and baked goats cheese. Sea food also available, and prices are reasonable for this corner of England. Wine by-the-glass not extortionate.
