    We dine at Downtown Grille often because the chefs’ creativity in their menu is outstanding. And I look for creativity in dishes that I won’t or can’t cook myself. Their sourcing of local ingredients is so fresh and superior to standard ingredients from wholesale food distributors. Our biggest issue is when the restaurant is full - it’s noisy and hard to hear. So we try to go on slower nights.

    Food was amazing, as always, and our server Julie was wonderful. We ordered several small plates to share, and they were all delicious. The crudo was wonderful, super bright and fresh, and the sauce that came with it was so good I almost licked the plate. The okonomiyaki special (cabbage pancake) was really different and also delicious. The octopus was cooked perfectly, as were the potatoes that came with it. And the chocolate torte was so rich and fudgy, and the strawberry ice cream was a perfect complement. Overall we had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to go back!

    We made a very late reservation for eight people at 9:45 PM on a Friday for a Post high school graduation dinner. There aren't many places around who would accommodate a party that large that late, but downtown Grill did. And without any complaints, or warnings that the kitchen was about to close, or any frustration at all, the service was gracious, flawless, the food was delicious. Highly recommended!
    Downtown GrilleResponded on May 28, 2024

We're so glad you enjoyed your meal, and we hope you'll dine with us again soon!

    Harrison and Brian are murdering the Winston-Salem food scene! By far one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The grilled octopus was quite tasty, very well thought out, and executed. My friend and I shared a grilled Caesar salad, also fire. The picanha steak was perfectly cooked and very well seasoned. I definitely picked up Indian Or Moroccan vibes off of it, and the chimichurri tied it all together perfectly. I had to accompany this with some crispy frites. Legitimately some of the best fries I've ever put into my mouth. But nothing prepared me for the decadent flourless chocolate torte with homemade strawberry ice cream. It was under sauced with what appeared to be a tart strawberry coulis and sprinkled with crunchy cocoa nibs. (Thanks, seriously) I would like to give the experience 5 stars. Keep up the good work!

    This was my first dining experience at the Downtown Grille. From the moment you enter the door, until the time you left, it was a great experience. The service, the food, and the design of the restaurant are wonderful. It is very obvious that the people working there and enjoy their job. The noise level was a little bit more than I would have liked, but you got used to it. I highly recommend this restaurant, I feel it was a great find.

    Downtown Grille is excellent. We were there on a Thursday evening and enjoyed every minute. Service was great and the food is spot on. This was our first visit and we will definitely be returning. The wine list is extensive with a wide range in pricing. Wine by the glass is responsibly priced. Cheers!
