My boyfriend worked with the staff at City Grille to help make his proposal so special. They were amazing. And our place setting was beautiful! The food was amazing and the decor was perfect for the occasion. The price was also reasonable. We will be back!

Menu has options for every taste and budget. Great Service from Ryan and Logan, our waiters. Highly recommend the Creme Brule for dessert! Spinach Rissoto was amazing!

Very nice atmosphere. Menu has nice selection of fine dining entrees. Very nice wine list. Great place for a date night. Bring your cash, items are pricey... food was well worth it though!

Late lunch stop and ordered the burger and fries. Food very good, service very good. Nothing really special about this establishment to make it standout. Probably would go elsewhere next visit (if there is one) to Wausau. Average for restaurant. Could have probably paid less for the meal if we didn't have the white tablecloth.

This is the best place to go in town for a fun Lady's Night Out. Make sure to start with the Lemon Drop Martini, best in town! Their scallops are the second best I've had not on a coast. It's a little expensive for this area, but worth it. Thursdays they have a great date night menu.

Went with my husband for his overnight stay and found your restaurant online. Not only was the area beautiful with the Christmas lights highlighting downtown Wausau but your bistro was excellent. Food was awesome and service spectacular!!

This restaurant is excellent and is adjacent to the quaint Jefferson Street Inn. They have one of the best Friday fish fry in town. You can anything from a burger to high cuisine. The atmosphere is bustling with business people, date nights, out-of-towners. They had live entertainment on the weekends. Beautiful bar and interior decor.

The City Grill is where you can get a good steak but don't need to dress up to eat it. Housed in the beautiful downtown Wausau, it's a revolving door of locals seeking fine dining in a trendy atmosphere decorated in local art. The City Grill hosts live music once a week and is a great place to take a date, meet friends for appetizers or just watch the game with friends. And while the fillets and martinis taste top dollar, we promise they won't empty your pocketbook.

In addition, City Grill offers banquet facilities, located on the 2nd floor of building. Our professional planners will help you choose the hall to accommodate your guests and will help you plan a personalized reception or meeting. Whether hosting 2 guests or 400, the City Grill & Jefferson Street Inn is the perfect venue for corporate events, board retreats, holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, showers, gift openings and brunches. Our personalized service ensures that every detail is carried out according to your specific taste and style.
