Our first visit.Our server,Gina,was very good. The food was wonderful! I had the noodle with wontons and Chilean sea bass.My wife had Caesar salad and salmon. Everything was prepared perfectly. The only issue was the noise level. We sat near the bar which we will request another area next time. We will certainly be back!

Consistently very good meals. Had to ask for another seat due to the air conditioning vents situated right above most of the tables. However, done quickly and had a very nice evening.

We had a great night celebrating my daughters 27th bday! The waitress was super accommodating with all of my allergies. I love Grille 3501 because I have Celiacs as well as a But & Egg allergy and I’ve not ever gotten sick there. No one has ever made me feel bad for having such allergies ether. Food is still always amazing. Thank you.

I had the dry aged “cowboy steak”. It was cooked to perfection and maybe the most delicious 🥩 I’ve ever enjoyed.

The food was nothing short of amazing and we were very impressed with the portions of the apps. However the ambiance was horrendous. We had reservations so to be seated in the bar area where it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other was very surprising. When I say the bar crowd was loud and obnoxious it’s an understatement. If you pay $200 for a meal you’d expect a somewhat different dining experience? Otherwise I cannot say enough about the food. The server was very prompt as well for having what looked like at least a dozen tables all over the place. Hats off to her!

Great place for all occasions. Good food, great service and dinning under the outdoor tent is really nice. Been coming here for years for lunch, dinner and happy hour. Had a good time every time we were here. I wish it was right down the street from us but still worth the drive. Will be back

My wife joined another couple we hadn't seen since the beginning of 2020 at Grille 3501 on 06/30/21. Because of the high humidity and outdoor temperatures, the main dining room was open. We were seated at a large round table, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the salmon, which was grilled and seasoned to perfection. The prices were high, but were well worth it. The noise level was a bit loud, so we had a some trouble conversing, but we had a good time nevertheless. We didn't feel rushed at all.

Usually have excellent meal at G3501. However, last eve we (3) went for quick meal and ordered 6 appetizers to split, no meals. Three apps came out of kitchen within 20 min. Next 3 took nearly an hour to get, and I had to ask waitress why. She said something about manager and then later about chef. Noise too loud to hear exact quotes. Very disappointed at service.

For the Lehigh Valley, excellent food choices and perfectly made dishes. However they must be short on staff as our waitress had to do all of the delivery for appetizer and entrée when we had asked how long would be. It took 45 minutes from the time we ordered to receive an appetizer and additional hour later to get our entrées. We had a very good server who really knew the menu and make great recommendations. They need to really work on pace It made what can be a very comfortable meal into a three hour meal. Even hearing about dessert was out of the question based on the marathon service experience

Food was sub par. Truffle rice dry as a bone. Sea bass just ok. Looked like a mess thrown on the plate. We’ve been eating here for years. Not sure what’s going on but very disappointed.

Food was Very Good. Ambiance was terrible. The noise level was UNBEARABLE😱 I probably will not eat there again — we’ll, maybe takeout. The waitress was kind, but there was nothing she could do about the noise. Dining room was closed.

Had to wait well past my reservation time to be seated. Drinks and appetizers came fairly quickly, then had to wait a very long time for entrees. My dinner was just ok, as the filet I ordered was slightly undercooked, but worse, not very warm. Same for my side of buttermilk mashed potatoes, not very warm. My wife's main course was fine (grouper), but her side of scallion potatoes was cut like a brownie (very square) and seemed like something from a TV dinner. It wasn't terrible, but we expected more given the reputation.

The food was good. Unfortunately, the wait staff was new which she told us as she introduced herself to us at the table. Service was very very slow. My drink was spilled by someone because it was really sticky. It might have been the bar tender so don't blame the wait staff. It took a long time to get our beverages and then a long time to get our entrees. I know that there is a major problem with getting and keeping staff because people are making more money be staying at home and collecting unemployment.

Waitress was wonderful!

Glazed pork belly appetizer was very good.

Both our steaks were burned and tasted like ashes :( broccolini was fried to a crisp, also. Potatoes were pretty good. When we told the waitress that the food was not up to par, she offered to bring us something else, but we had both basically lost our appetites. She offered a free dessert, so I got the coconut cheesecake, which was pretty tasty. Ended up spending $150 for us to go home and eat cheese and crackers because we couldn't finish our entrees.

Waitress, again, was very sweet, though!
