The Grill at Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews
go to calvary, eat here all the time. Food is great and reasonable. Servers need to be trained. Worked in restaurant biz for 6 yrs. Mgr has never BEEN in a restaurant. Never checks on quality. Servers hide in back. A quality professional would make this top 10 in Ft Lauderdale
We were sat promptly as we had a reservation. Restaurant was busy so the waiter was a bit behind on the drink service. Coffee was not hot, nor was the water for tea as we were a party of six and drink lots of tea and coffee. We asked for a boiled egg for my little daughter as this is the only way she eats eggs and was told it could not be done. I asked the waiter if he could please check with the kitchen. He did and the request was made available. Another waiter took two of the tea cups away to heat them up and never brought them back which was annoying. I had to get up a couple of times to fetch some extra sugar and water. As the restaurant slowed down, service picked up. Overall I was pleased with the overall service and the waiter ( I believe his name was Mark, a young man). I visit the Grille about once a month and enjoy the food very much. As a waiter in college, I was taught to pay attention to all the little details. If a customer asked for a special request, I always made sure to let them know that I will do my best to fulfill on their request and most times it was not a problem.
I love to eat at this place, however the runner often brings the good warm, sometimes the wrong table, I have to suggest having a person that knows to bring the food to the right table and don't go around asking your order this or that, but I love the food and I believe that the people need a little training before expedite orders around the dining area, which sometimes is the reason for the good to be just warm ...
Excellent food as always! I really appreciate how accommodating they are to me and my toddler. He is able to sit through a meal there really well. The service is very good as well. They grow many of their own vegetables in their garden which makes for fresh options. Also appreciate the seasonal items the offer.
I eat here regularly and am never disappointed. Their specials are always creative and fun, but even their standard menu is fantastic. There is definitely a focus on quality when it comes to the food. As for the staff, they genuinely seem happy to be serving you- and that isn't exclusive to just the assigned waiter. The food runners, hostesses, manager- they all are attentive and responsive to any request. I can't say enough great things about this place. Keep it up!
IF YOU DON'T MIND GETTING SERMONIZED WHILE EATING THIS IS FOR YOU. WE THOUGHT THIS RESTAURANT WELCOMED ALL PEOPLE BUT LEARNED THAT IS NOT TRUE!!! TV'S EVERYWHERE AT A VOLUME OF "11" WITH A SERMON. ALL WE WANTED WAS A GREAT MEAL BASED ON REVIEWS WE READ. WAS A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE AND HAD TO LEAVE AFTER HAVING SOME SOUP!!!!!
The dining experience was great: better than I expected from a church, but my expectations don't matter in a review. Here's what does...
There was a ton of parking when I was there on a weekday. If you follow signs, you'll get close. It took me a couple minutes to navigate through the church's campus before I came across the restaurant. It's not complicated at all to get there but it's different than pulling right up to a restaurant. This is not a negative aspect, it's just to make readers aware for when you go for the first time.
There were enough seats to accommodate two of us and the service was prompt, friendly, and professional.
The food was excellent and the portions were very fair (not too small).
You don't need to be a Christian to go to a restaurant that is located in a church. It has great food, great service, and I recommend it to all.
Coming from Naples, the drive was well worth this pleasure.
The food is not what you would expect within church walls. Situated separately from the sanctuary on this large campus, you will walk by beautiful grounds and even a children's playground.
The menu is more limited than in the past, there is only one now. Lunch and dinner are the same. However, it definitely covers your palate, from pizza, to fresh salmon in sweet chili sauce. They have more vegetable choices than I remember, brown rice, lots of healthy side dishes as well as the usual steak burger and fries.
There is something for everyone here and somehow they include the kids without feeling like you're sitting at McDonalds.
Classy, great gathering place for many occasions. Reason they did not receive a perfect score is that although we had reservations, upon arrival no one was in front. We were not greeted or acknowledge for ten minutes. Then when we got to a table, again there was a long wait before water arrived. This was 5:30pm on a Friday. Service after that was excellent.
The Mother's Day Brunch compared to last year was not good this year I found the cost not worthy. The fruit and pasta stations were missing and a lot of fish dishes were absent. The dessert section was a definite pass. Sushi served with dessert was not very good. I commend the service it is always good. The carving stations were excellent. I will always go for lunch or dinner but will skip the brunch next year. SORRY !!!
Darren and his suberb team have always provided us with an impeccable world class dinning experience. Reservations are easy to make. There is always ample parking and the value is unbeatable. My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Grille a long time. It is our favorite hiding place.
If you want to experience a little bit of heaven on earth dine at the Grille. They set the standard of excellence in dining that other restaurants should seek to emulate.

We made a reservation via opentable for 7:30pm for a larger group. When we arrived they told us the kitchen would close in 30min. We talked to the manager, but it was waste of time. They should not have accepted the reservation in the first place if they close that early. It caused us a big headache to find another place nearby with such a big group.
Our hostess greeted us and was very gracious as he escorted us to our table. Our table for twelve was set up beautifully as requested. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the waitress took our orders brought them back in a timely fashion. I ordered the Bang Bang shrimp which were amazing!!! Other guests ordered brunch items and loved everything. Can't wait to return!!
I always like to eat at the Grill but it was my first reservation in advance, due to Christmas Eve's event. I really wanted to postpone the time of the reservation to 930 instead of 900, so I wouldn't have to interrupt the Christmas celebration service and go for dinner. They said it was not possible because the restaurant would be very busy at 930 pm. I was surprised the restaurant was only half_full. That made me feel a little disappointed about the service. They had the TVs in a low volume but at least I was able to watch the end of the service. The food was delicious, as always.
I eat here many times during the week but without my wife. Its mostly with my men's group. You might consider adding a fish sandwich (on the menu years ago). How about a veggie burger? Every restaurant has something for a veggie person except the Grill. She can't eat cheese pizza & salads every visit so we pass & eat elsewhere. Fish dinner is good but we cannot afford $18 per person. Potential (4) person check would probably be $40-$50 or more with each visit. Your gross sales revenue would greatly increase since most vegetarian families eat where everyone can dine. As a family we eat out after Saturday night service. We would love to continue this tradition at the Grill. Other families have also commented on your menu choices for their spouse or children. Please consider this request. Thank you.
We've been to the Grill several times, all before attending a performance. This occasion was very disappointing. The server brought the order and part was wrong. Instead of just bringing the correct side, he took away the whole thing to replace the incorrect item. It also took a long time to get condiments so we couldn't start eating.
