I stopped in for dinner and drinks with a friend and we waited 90min for dinner as usual but then after eating we ordered a drink while at the table and the manager came over and asked that we give up our table and move to the bar. We moved to the bar but there wasn't a single place to... More

This was my first visit so I read several reviews ahead of time. Many reviews mentioned their Prime Rib French Dip with one reviewer saying it was the best they ever had. I immediately knew what I was going to order. Dips are pretty basic, just meat, au jus and bun. All three parts have to be outstanding to produce... More

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Los Altos. Be prepared for a long wait, especially on the weekend. We really like this restaurant, the food is good and the service is generally great. It is somewhat of an interesting mix of adults at the bar and families having dinner, but it seems to work.

Our son and his family took us to Los Altos a grill to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was just okay. The cornbread was yummy but the rest of the meal not very special. It was a weekday and not really busy but our server acted as if we were an imposition. Too bad...I would not recommend this place.

The chicken is roasted over a wood pit out front. My favorite is the kale salad with the roast beef dip sandwich. It is made with prime rib. The only reason I did not give this place five stars- it is noisy. So if you enjoy a lively restaurant with great food- give it a try.

Always crowded but don't let that fool you into thinking that the food is wonderful. Oftentimes the meat is under-cooked. So busy that the pressure is on to get the orders out. Booths all around are great if one weighs 250 lbs and a big belly. Otherwise, not comfortable.

I wish trip advisor had a negative rating scale so that I could adequately describe the wasted half an hour our group spent there - after having booked dinner in advance. We arrived - party of seven which included an 84 year man with poor mobility and sight, and a tiny baby. On our arrival we were directed to a... More

We tried a number of dishes, including the guacamole with hand cut chips, chicken and kale salad, beef, Mac and Cheese, and other options. (Split a delicious creamy chocolate dessert.) Portions were generous and well presented. The chickens are slow roasted on the premises and are juicy, well seasoned and excellent. Everyone thought the food was delicious. Service was attentive...

This place is a great option for stellar american dishes including items like cornbread, bbq, burgers, amazing salads, Mac and Cheese. Their bar is solid and they offer some interesting wines. Consistent and always a winner.

Mu husband and I went to the Grill for dinner. This is Monday night and we got seated right away. On other nights, reservation will be a must. The serving portions are on the large side. Chances are you will have left over for lunch the next day. I ordered Thai Noodle Salad with grilled chunks of fillet mignon, mango,... More
