The Loft at 3501, a new addition to the Valley's favorite restaurant, provides guests with a unique dining experience in the West End by offering patio and open-air dining along with the same great award-winning menu favorites.

We came here for a birthday dinner, and it was so delicious. We returned with our baby (less than 3 months) and our 2 year old and let me say he inhaled the food. It was delicious. There's always fun items, and the appetizers are something you could literally make a meal out of! It's an exceptionally good restaurant, esp. in Allentown, where truly exceptional restaurants can be hard to come by.

I've been to Grille 3501 for dinner and for drinks. The servers and bartenders are generally friendly and knowledgeable but the food is very average. Also, they have this extraordinarily annoying policy of asking diners (including women) to remove their hats, yet they provide no shelf, rack, or hat check! (And we're not talking baseball caps here, but fedora-style hats that one can't just throw on the floor.)

I understand that it's considered polite for men to remove their hats in restaurants. But, if you're going to make a rule like this, and essentially demand this courtesy from your customers (apparently the owner requires the wait staff to ask diners to remove their hats) the least the owner could do is provide a hat check! Given the average nature of the dining experience and this silly rule, I have now begun avoiding 3501 altogether.

I have been to Grille 3501 many times over the years, and I have to say that given it's price point, it's a real mixed bag. Service and food have been excellent, or mediocre. Where one is seated can make the difference of whether you enjoy yourself. Service is generally ok, but again, nothing to write home about.

Excellent place for a quiet evening and wonderful meal. I've never had a bad experience at Grille3501. I do recommend reservations as they do get busy. Reservations via their website is easy and you can do it at your leisure.
