We had a meal yesterday evening at le Grill. It was a long awaited, supposedly, special dinner and we were quite excited at the prospect of a Grilled steak...mmmm. The meat was rather disappointing. A restaurant "specializing" in steaks should have it down to a fine science! The meat did not rest and our plates were covered with the beef juices. My husbands steak was sooo hot he had to let it cool off. They also did not get the preparation correct and overdid both of our steaks. I asked for medium rare, and got medium. It should be perfect for that price, perfect! The restaurant is comfortable. The staff are very friendly and are quite good and the view cannot be beat, but the steaks, well....When le Grill grows up, it may be lucky enough to call itself The KEG.

Yes, it's the real deal for us "meat lovers".
Even without a reservation, they found us a lovely lake view table on a weekend evening.
The service was welcoming and friendly.
The atmosphere was easygoing and warm.
You can also check out the chefs grilling.
The menu was simple and the meat was delicious!!
We really enjoyed it very much and hopefully visit it again soon!
Enjoy and Bon Ap.!

The service is just terrible! I spent 55 minutes waiting for a grilled entrecote and the restaurant only had a few tables full. It wasn't the first time I had to wait a lot but was for sure the last time I went there.
The staff is super unqualified, I had to ask 4 times where was my food... and they didn't even apologize. Instead they served tables that arrived latter first. By the end tried to give the food away for free like if that sorts out the huge lack of quality of the service. Really bad attitude. Doesn't worth 10% of the price.

We took a cooking class held at Le Grill with Executive Chef James Norman. The food is fantastic... really a nice experience. It's upscale dining, a modern setting, phenomenal service and wine pairings, and just a great time had by all. Go!
