"This was a special occasion dinner, it was my wife's Birthday. The initial presentation and welcoming was warm and friendly. We ordered drinks from the bar which arrived timely. 45 minutes after we ordered our entrees the food had not arrived, nor had the waiter offered any reason for the delay. I flagged the waiter , requested the status of our food. It was an hour from the time we ordered dinner, for it arrive at the table. My wife and I usually order wine with meals, in this case, based on are experience the pricing of the wine offered was excessive. I ordered another round of drinks. The second round of drinks never arrived, nor did the waiter notice. I cancelled the second round of drinks. At this point we were anxious for the experience to end. I asked for the check, noticed we had been charged for the absent drinks and had to request the charge be removed from the check, again NO attention to detail. At one point the manger stopped by our table inquiring about the taste of the food, he offered an excuse for the service delay, as they had a large party in one of the conference rooms. I had the impression he thought this excused the poor service. I informed the manger this was not the first time we had experienced poor service at this location. Overall the experience was a disappointment."

"The assumption is, based on price, that Grill on the Alley serves USDA Prime beef. Not so. While all the sides were excellent, the cocktails well made, and the service very good, the steaks were no better than you would get at an Outback - which would be fine if they cost $30 instead of $50. They seem to be assuming that their clientele is too unsophisticated to know they're getting ripped off. Live and learn."

"This restaurant reminds you of the good life. Exceptional service, beautiful classic decor. An extraordinary wine list. Steaks made to perfection. Absolutely the best steak tartare in Los Angeles. Took family members to enjoy a fantastic 3-course pre fixe for DineLA. Each course was terrific. What a great offer. Can't wait to go back."

"This review would have been outstanding except for the fact that one of us ordered steak medium rare and it was definitely medium. We oredered 3 med. rare and 1 meium and were served 2 med rare and 2 meium. That was disappointing. Of course the server and the manager offered to replace the meat, but that always takes time and then we can't have the common dining esperience."

"Granted it was an "Off-Night." Problems with kitchen equipment, etc. But for the prices, they could have tried harder to please. This was a terrible dining experience.
And farmed salmon at those prices!!! Shame on you Mr. Grill on the Ally!!!
Love the ambiance but not worth the price of admission.

"Go often for dinner. Always good. Wish they would have decorated for NY Eve. Not festive at all."

"I took my mother to Grill on the Alley as a special treat for her 93rd birthday. Dinner was a bit pricey for our budget, so we settled on lunch. It was refreshing to dine in a refined white table cloth restaurant for a change. We were warmly greeted and immediately shown to a booth. Drink orders were served promptly along with delicious, straight from the oven French bread. Lunch prices are only a few dollars more than other places in the area and worth it for the ambiance alone. Mom ordered the turkey melt sandwich and I had the cobb salad and a delicious cup of butternut squash soup, which was the highlight of the meal. The only fault I can find with the experience was the lack of service once the meal arrived. The server set down my soup without a spoon, and it took several minutes before a member of the staff happened by for me to ask for the missing utensil. It also took two separate requests to the waitstaff before ketchup for my mom's fries appeared. Other than that, no complaints. She received a piece of scrumptious complimentary birthday spongecake for dessert. Nice finish to a pleasant meal."

"Our previous experiences have always been good, although the most recent previous brunch was marred by lobster-less bisque and tepid coffee. Had a nice chat with the GM who asked for another chance to serve. New Year's Eve was our anniversary and the evening was perfect. Steaks beyond compare, lobster mashed potato with lobster (lol) piping hot coffee and great cheesecake. The staff could not have been more attentive or professional. Tait was kind enough to drop by greet us...NO trip to GOTA is complete unless we see the Big Man! If I were to pick a nit, I would argue that the vodka martinis could do with a tad more oomph. But all in all, a night to remember. Hopefully, the Bisque will soon be lobster infused!!!"
