    We had outstanding service as always great cocktails and delicious food. I had the chef’s choice steak which was a strip steak. It was the thickest steak I ever had and it melted in my mouth.

    We went for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Service was wonderful. Jennifer was our waitress and she was magnificent. From our drinks to our to go desserts, everything was fresh and delicious. We would love to go back sometime.

    Haven't been in a while, menu really changed. My salmon was too dry for my liking and the short ribs could have used more gravy. Crab spring rolls were very good, service was very good. I thought the menu had very limited options from the last time we were there. Though there was a steak for $84! crazy!

    Party of 7…all entrees took what seemed a very long time & arrived at our table barely above room temperature. Protein portions were very small on lobster entrees. Not worth the $42 price point. Where the menu was varied and provided interesting protein, veg & carb pairings to choose from, I’d have to say this upscale restaurant is overpriced for the service and food delivered. Most of our party was disappointed.

    OK, so couple things. I think the wait for entrees is way too long. My family and I were there an almost an hour and a half and had almost finished our second drink before the entrees came out. The restaurant was not busy, so not sure what the situation was, but way too long. Secondly, 2 drinks and 2 of us were 3 sheets to the wind. Something is up with that. 2 shots in every drink? To make us forget the meals were no where to be found? Just odd experience. On a bright note, the vote was decent.

    Made a delightful meal from several rounds of shared starters and a salad. The variety of starters is outstanding, offering some truly novel tastes. Service was perfect, and perfectly paced. We were seated in the main dining room, which was quiet.

    Ambience and atmosphere is always subjective, but the wife and I enjoy it here. We shared the beet fritters app, which was quite good. I had the pork chop, which was delicious. The wife ordered the scallops, and said they were tasty. Have been here several times, and will certainly be back.

    We have dined at Grill 3501 in the past always great food well prepared great taste, but this time not sue what has happened but poor-quality food, presentation, and temperature. Both appetizers were cold Entree, Pork was cooked excellent, but the garnish was poor and the meal was not hot. Entee, Veal poor quality the veal was raw I asked for Medium, garnish was prepared poorly potatoes raw very poor presentation meal was not hot. Dessert, Apple Strudel, was basically bread pudding with 1/2 oz. ice cream and very-very sweet. Bread for dinner was poor quality and old. Hope Grill 3501 comes back to what is once was! I would recommend but with caution.

    They were accommodating, we were being seated in the bar area but when we asked if they had room in dining room they moved ut. Food was great. Husband loved the octopus app and his lamb shank. I enjoyed the scallops. Desserts were scrumptious too. Apple cake and smores we shared.

    We received water right away but waited quite a while to be greeted by the waitress. We waited an extremely long time for our food to come out and when it did, my husband’s steak was kind of cold and undercooked in some parts. My salmon was delicious. We waited a very long time as well to receive our bill after we said we were ready to check out. Our waitress was pleasant, friendly but was a bit too busy. The noise level on the second floor was quite loud and we had some difficulty hearing each other. Not sure if there is a quieter place to sit but we were above the bar. Overall not what we were hoping for for our Valentine dinner
