Good food, imaginative menu, but pricey. Salads were not a la carte and also pricey. The short ribs were very tasty.

We enjoyed another great meal at Grille 3501 last night as part of our continuing celebration of our 63rd anniversary. The muted lighting, bright enough to read the menu but low enough to encourage relaxing to enjoy the food, our table for 2 was narrow but elongated enough to readily display each dish. The wine list was broad, well selected,... More

My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary with a dinner date to Grille 3501. Both of our meals were delicious! The free range chicken "coq au vin" was amazing. Save room for the Crispy Rice Pudding Dumplings-yum! We sat inside and enjoyed the quiet pleasant atmosphere. They have outdoor seating and a bar area that was quite busy... More

I've eaten here many times and enjoy the food very much. It is on the expensive side with smaller portions and does not include a salad. There is an outdoor more lively bar and a quieter bar inside. Great place for happy hour & their reduced appetizers.

Grille 3501 was a mix of great, good and not so good, but overall I'd go there again. The atmosphere is nice with an outdoor and indoor option, however both areas were fairly noisy; especially for a Tuesday night. We were greeted and seated promptly and the server came by fairly quickly. The first round of drinks took a little... More

Whether it's lunch or dinner , friends or family I have never been disappointed here. There is outside dining for the good weather and of course inside dining. You can also have a private space for your group if you wish. The food is good and the ambiance pleasant. The prices can add up with drinks and appetisers and dessert... More

Good Stuff~ Nice atmosphere, easy parking, tables are nice, friendly staff, food is tasty, nice menu. Not so good stuff~ portions are small. I think the place is pricey. This restaurant is within walking distance of my house. I have eaten their twice in 20 years. Why? ~ given the price and portion size, I think there are better values... More

The food was very good but I would say that the portions were rather small for the price. Beautiful presentation of everything we ordered. Great bar and cocktails.

Nice luncheon menu... More

Probably the best duck I have ever had. The rest of the meal was terrific as well. Fresh ingredients thoughtfully prepared in a relaxing environment. I would highly recommend the Grille!
