“Incredible value in a luxury hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Incredible waffle Sunday brunch (with all the other standard food of a brunch) with $5 bottomless mimosas. Excellent quality appetizers at half price when they have happy hour starting at 4 p.m. Also try their soup specialty that goes back decades - I think it's called 'mock' soup - and they add a dash of optional brandy at your table if you want - very classy and very tasty.

“WOW.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I found this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor. I eat out quite a bit due to business travel and this is definitely on my top 5 experiences. The restaurant is exquisite - old married with modern. Fancy and casual at the same time but definitely not stuffy. Our server, Melanie, provided the best wait service I've ever experienced. She knew the menu like she wrote it herself and made fantastic recommendations. Drinks were generous and delicious. Food was beautifully presented and tasted even better.

If you like classy dining, don't miss this place.

“Exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The impressive menu is small but very creative. The food, both appetizers and entres are wonderful, especially the sauces. Service is professional but very pleasant and attentive but not hovering. The history and ambiance add to the adventure.

“Amazing Sunday Brunch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I had the pleasure of having a wonderful Sunday Brunch with my friends at the Grant Grill. The food was delicious and, even with all our modifications, it all came out just the way we wanted. Our server, the sweet and super polite – but charming – Augusto, did an amazing job and took such great care of us, even though he was clearly very busy. Great experience! We will be back soon to now try their brunch buffet!

“DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Dined at the Grant Grill to celebrate my girlfriend's bridal shower/bachelorette party and it was SPECTACULAR!
The food was delicious and the presentation was superb!
A few days before we arrived I received a call from Alberto Hollman, a supervisor at the GG. He wanted to call just to make sure everything was set and ready for the evening we had planned. He really set up the evening for success!
Sydney greeted us at the door with a friendly smile! Sara H. and Jaime, cocktail servers, were very accomodating and sweet throughout the everning. Our server Sergio was incredible as was our busser, also named Sergio.
The manager Lindsey came to check on our table throughout the evening which was a nice touch.

I will definitely be back!!!!!!!!
