Ross' Grill Ratings and Reviews

Cowboy ribeye special was phenomenal as was the seafood stew. The onion soup was the best I've had anywhere (sorry Capital Grill). Our waiter was friendly and full of good recommendations. We usually come here once or twice a year. Also save room for the peanut butter pie!

In a resort town one often gets mediocre food passed off as gourmet...not so here. We were very pleasantly surprised at the excellent preparation of the appetizers (soft shell crab - done to perfection) and the seafood entrees. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and knew which of two wines was drinking better. (We had a chance to find out as we drank the other bottle the next night at a different restaurant.) He was right on the money! The view added to our experience and our waiter was friendly without crossing the line of professionalism.

Eating at Ross' Grill is always one of the highlights of my many trips to Provincetown. Caesar always makes you feel like you are a special guest. The hand selected wines, the outstanding menu and professional service are all enhanced by the spectacular view of the harbor. It's the whole package!

The food and server were outstanding -- the view was incredible -- but that is pretty much where it stopped.
I made the reservation prior to even arriving in Ptown, making sure we were going to have a GREAT final meal in town. I researched and menu-shopped, and found the perfect place! I arrived in Ptown, and told everyone of our find. After a week of waiting, we arrived.
My first issue is that though we made reservations days in advance, we were not treated any more special than anyone else. We were given a crammed table, under a fan that didn't work. Though, I saw other folks walk up WITHOUT reservations, and they were seated in water-front seats. May I suggest: if someone takes the time to COMMIT to your restaurant prior to even arriving in your town, you would at least give them a LITTLE bit of respect in actually reserving a decent table.
My second issue -- the heat! There is no AC! It was 90F INSIDE the restaurant, since the restaurant is very poorly ventilated. I had to go to the rest room multiple times ONLY to dry off, since it was so hot and sticky. And, again, the ONLY source of relief available was a ceiling fan -- but it was broken, stuck on the low setting. So, while I was watching other folks walk in, sit at the water-front, window seats, all having fans that are on high speed -- we, were treated like 2nd class, stuck in the middle of a cramped room, with ZERO air.
It was absolutely miserable! If you are going to be open during the summer, you should either post that you have NO AC on your website -- so that people can actually dress appropriately and not wear coats and ties, slacks; OR, better yet, with the $250 bill we (over) paid, you should consider fixing the ceiling fans, or maybe even buying an AC.
Either way, the food was incredible, and our server was great -- but sweating in my food, while sweat was running down my arms, while I even felt faint for a bit -- due to the heat -- this place will never again be on my list of places to eat.

The food did not match the great setting overlooking the water. I had the grilled romaine which was more like wilted romaine and topped with a dressing that tasted like bottled. For an entree, I had the Tuscan Kale. It was extremely salty, served on top of spinach and mashed potato, and everything was sitting in some kind of salty broth. My dining partner ordered the gazpacho, which he said was the worst he ever had. For his entree, he had the paella, which turned out to be oily and salty rice with some seafood. Definitely not worth the high prices to enjoy a view.

Made reservation a week in advance on open table. Called Ross's grill on day of reservation to change my 9:30 PM reservation to earlier time. Could only get 9:15 new time but when we arrived at 9PM, the restaurant was almost empty. Think I would have done better without a reservation.

We had an excellent waitperson, Kathy, she was attentive without being intrusive. Very knowledgeable about the food. The escargot was off the hook, garlicky and delicious. The grilled romaine with bacon and blue cheese, yummy. I had the seafood risotto, so creamy and delicious. The pork chop was exceptional. I would definitely put this on my must list for Provincetown.

This was one of my favorite spots in P Town but now has a new owner and chef.
The small portion of mussels had an off taste and the stock was not reduced at all and had no taste. The seafood risotto was just OK. The tuna entree was a poor grade of tuna but was just OK. We didn't want to waste our money on a dessert after sampling the above.
Ross' s Bistro we will miss you. For $140.00 we can do a lot better in P Town.

One of our handful of favorite P'town restaurants. Creative menu and preparation - always properly seasoned, i.e., not overdone like so many restaurants these days. Excellent chowder, great risotto, perfect soft-shell crabs (special), nice halibut.

It seems to have gone a bit down hill. The tables were sticky. The filet had a thick brown gravy glaze that over powered the meat. The seafood stew had such a tiny amount of seafood. And what was in it was small. I get bigger mussels in RI. I had expected more by the water. We've always gone here when we visit PTown. Next time I'll skip it.

While I could have had the brussel sprouts at The Canteen for the forth time in four days (they were life changing), we decided to branch out to check out Ross' Grill. While I initially intended to dine with a friend, we had three more coming along. I conveyed this addition to the maitre d in person. As the restaurant was booked solid that night, I requested that she try to accommodate all five of us. When we got there, I politely inquired about the feasibility to sit us at a larger table. This was not plausible. No matter - we took a table that sat four - leaving one of us in the corner. However, as our meal proceeded, a table for six opened up. I acted on this vacancy and expressed our intent to move to our waiter. I'm guessing that the maitre d heard about the situation and came over.
She said, in a somewhat snarky tone, "I'm see you got your way in the end".
This, I felt, was extremely uncalled for as we had been nothing but nice throughout the evening. I had not demanded that she accommodate my last minute addition.
While the service was alright, and the food generous and hearty, make note that the unpleasant experience with the maitre d left a sour taste in my mouth. As the first point of interaction of an establishment, he or she sets the overarching mood of the dining experience. This was definitely not a great one.

Loud, but we could hear each other fine. Nice lighting, warm ambiance, convivial. Highlight: Absolutely the best fried calamari we've ever had. Fresh, equal legs and rings, tempura-like, exquisitely seasoned, with a clear, dark dipping sauce, like fish sauce, but tarter and saltier. Perfect! And the dish is huge. Makes a meal. Fettuccine was a bit heavy and gluey, but good nevertheless. Service was young, earnest, competent.

Grill never disappoints. Service was impeccable and food plentiful and delicious. It's always hard to decide what to eat. You can't go wrong and recommend saving room for dessert. Key Lime Cheesecake is my favorite.

Another outstanding meal at Ross's Grill. Was great to see it continues the high level of food creativity and service. We look forward to dinner at Ross's each year when we visit Ptown. Cesar is warm and welcoming and doing things right . Ross's Grill is on the top-shelf of restaurants in Provincetown.

Ross's Grill does not disappoint! We went for an early dinner to celebrate a birthday party. The view overlooking Ptown Harbor is excellent. For the appetizer we split a Ceasar Salad which was very fresh. For dinner we each had the Rack of Lamb which was superb! Service was prompt, efficient, and very friendly. Excellent experience overall.

Awesome in every way! The view, service, selection and food were all top notch. We both had the Tuscan Cod entree and felt it was one of the very best meals we have had. We dine out often and in many locations, this is definitely one of the high points. We ate at 5 places while visiting p-town and Ross' was definitely #1!

My partner and I go to Ross Grill a few times per year. We love the friendly staff. The wine selection is extensive. The owner, Cesar, is very knowledgeable about all things wine and is a gracious host. Tapas is great. The view is wonderful.
Starting with the good: the food was very tasty. I got the steak and my girlfriend got the chicken and they were both portioned well and delicious.
Now that we got all of the good out of the way, why did I rate the restaurant 2 stars? Well, because my girlfriend and I went to the restaurant on Valentine's day and it was 51 degrees in the restaurant. 51!!! That's freezing! We (as well as everyone else in the restaurant) were all sitting around in multiple coats and hats and shivering. They had multiple space heaters placed around the restaurant but they barely seemed to be doing anything.
The staff didn't offer any acknowledgement or apology for the temperature. In fact, despite there being plenty of staff on hand, the service itself was quite poor overall. My water was only refilled once the whole evening and my girlfriend only get 1 refill of her 'bottomless' coffee (which she order mostly for warmth and it wasn't even hot!)
While the food was good, I am/was pretty upset I spent my valentine's day at this restaurant. I'm sure we would have had a very different experience in warmer weather, I will not be returning and cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Good food, good service, freezing tempseratures
We had Valentine's dinner here and while the food was good and the service was fine, it was literally freezing in the restaurant. Many customers had their coats on eating dinner. Granted, it was cold outside but it really shouldn't have been that cold inside. I have had great meals here in the spring and summer.
