My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Forest Grill this year and our dinner was a wonderful "anniversary gift" from beginning to end. We did make reservations and would recommend doing so particularly for a weekend evening. There is excellent valet...More

The tables are not shoved together which fostered pleasant atmosphere for conversation. I had two appetizers for my meal which was just right. The farm egg appetizer was delicious. Sophisticated decor.

The tomahawk steak is one of the best steaks I have enjoyed in a very long time. Service was good but not spectacular. The drinks were a bit overpriced for the quality. The food was good from beginning to the end.

The ambiance isn't much as the decor is very plain but the cocktails and food are delicious and more than make up for the lack of scenery. We loved the Feta and Brussels starter along with the Ricotta Gnocchi. Our expert server, Katrina, suggested we...More

Second timers to this restaurant and hugely disappointed! The menu is limited to 4 fish, 4 meat and 6 pasta dishes. The Appetizers are fetching, such as the octopus, ended doubling up on delicious truffled fries. Duck confit was a disaster, fish dishes were acceptable...More
