    I've been here a number of times in the service and the food are always excellent. However, $69 dollars for a ten ounce filet is a bit over the top. That's about a 50% increase since the last time I was there a few years ago.

    Meatloaf was gritty, salty and inedible
    Grill 23 & BarResponded on June 9, 2024
    Good Afternoon, Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the meatloaf. Please be assured we will look into this with our Chef team. Many thanks, Nick Heilmann GM.

    Another awesome meal at the G23! Always great to see Nick, Matt, Adam, Trey, Chris and Ryan there on the second floor. Nice to also meet the new GM Torry. The only problem is choosing between the filet mignon, steak Frites, burger and yes the meatloaf, but these are good problems to have! Looking forward to going back soon.

    It was very disappointing. Multiple items we ordered were undercooked and the flavors that were used in several dishes did not combine well. We had to wait a long time to receive the bill, which was very expensive. I would not go back.

    Grill 23 does not dissapoint. We had a wonderful server, delicious food and wine, prompt timing from the kitchen. Only wish they had scalloped potatoes but the coconut cake makes up for it!
