Great food, awesome ambience. It was a bit loud but nothing unusual. The service was great, our server whose name escapes my mind was very sweet, however she forgot one of our drinks. When we reminded her, she gave us the drink on the house. Great save, and I'm definitely coming back and bringing friends too!

The food was delicious but took forever to be served. No one came to check on us, to explain why our meal was taking so long. Server was stretched to far, to many tables for her to oversee.

Understaffed sat down at 715 and by 910 we still didn’t have our food. It was my wife’s birthday dinner.

We ate in a tent, the 20 min after sitting there it began to get cool inside. Menu was limited and the quality was not on par to what it use to be. You need to figure out how to provide a pre-Covid experience. We eat out often and this was definitely a disappointment. The server was excellent. We could definitely feel that corners have been cut to maximize profits.

Food was delicious! Our reservation was at 5. We got in right away. It didn’t seem to be busy at all during that time. Everything was just as we ordered. Service was fantastic.

First time. What a great meal. Went with a small work group.
I’m a halibut freak but often disappointed with how halibut is sometimes overcooked—-this was perfect. Perhaps the best halibut I’ve ever had. Everyone in our party was impressed with the food and service. We will definitely be back.

It was a little noisier than usual, but I attribute that to being in the tent.

Food was excellent. Both my husband and I ordered the filet and they were both cooked perfectly (his medium, mine medium rare). The service was also great and our waitress was very friendly. This was my first time eating here and I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family ☺️

Not sure what was going on, normally this place is on point. My daughter asked to take her out for a nice meal. I decided to take her here for a nice relaxing enjoyable meal. They had us in and out of there in 40 minuets. Very disappointing we originally only wanted to put in our appetizers to allow us to enjoy the setting and our time together. The waitress said no problem you can give me your whole order I will make sure it all gets spaced out. That did not happen one plate was picked up and another was dropped off. Well when we got the check it was time stamped 5:53 and we where paying the bill at 6:32. The sad part was my daughter said dad the people who sat down right before us are just now as we are leaving finishing there appetizers. Disappointed. Maybe we smelled lol

Never disappointed at 3501 with service and food.
Just slightly disappointed with one of the hostesses being a bit abrasive. However the other hostess was great!

The food and cocktails are consistently good here every time we go! I had the Tuna Tartare and the Lobster tails! I must confess if it wasn’t such a nice place I would have licked the Beurre Noisette sauce off of the plate! Great service always and we will be back for sure! Their soups are also always amazing!

0nce again, great food with creative specials. Delicious and the drinks were excellent. Very creative drinks, which drives me to try something new every time I'm here. Love this place so much, that I made a reservation to send my son and his wife this coming weekend. Service was excellent and the staff is extremely attentive.

Used to be one of my favorites but the dishes aren’t as good as they used to be there. Short ribs were smaller than usual with hardly any sauce (had to ask for more on the side) , fish was not seasoned as advertised and the side that came with it was not edible (my husband didn’t even eat it) salad was very small and drink wasn’t good. They used to do temperature checks (Covid) but didn’t this time? I been hesitant about going back the past few times but this time I’m deciding not to at this point. Just not worth it anymore.

We arrived ahead of schedule and they explained there would be a short wait til our table was ready .. They allowed us room to sit or stand near the bar and we had pre dinner cocktails .. Delicious !!! The remainder of the evening was superb .. We intend to return in a few weeks as always .. Can't wait !!!!

We sat on the patio but somewhat closed in so we felt COVID-safe but not too chilly for an early-Spring, evening meal. Our server was also the bartender and so we had fabulous service, drinks, and food as a result of his experience and recommendations. We chose Grille 3501 as a place to treat guests who came to town and the restaurant did not disappoint! Thank you!

Had a really good dinner at 3501. Was in from out of town for work with my wife. We had nice cocktails, and a very good dinner. I had the pork chop entree, my wife had the chicken. Both were quite good. Our server, Gina, was great. We will definitely return the next time we’re in Allentown.

Food and atmosphere were great. Exceeded expectations.
Service could have been a little better with attention to what was needed and when.
Lastly we were asked to leave after 1hr. 20mins. of dining. We were told they had a time limit to how long a table could stay for. With all due respect, we had three appetizers, soups, four entrees, four desserts, and ordered craft drinks and beer.
We all have not been out due to Covid-19 and this was a first gathering in over a year as couples, we spent over $200.00 at the table, not including the tip, so to be told our "time was up" was very unfortunate and quite honestly rude. Our table was still drinking and was interested in having espresso's/coffee. Within minutes of finishing our dessert we were approached to leave which seemed very odd considering the were open tables in both direction of our table.

Hi Rick, Thank you for taking the time to write to us. While we have had signs posted during Covid asking guests to observe a 90minute timeframe, we have very rarely had to enforce it and would never do so unless absolutely necessary. In this case, your table was seated at 5:33pm and finished at 8:22pm and there were tables waiting to be seated on that Saturday so regrettably, this was one of those times.

This place was fantastic. The food was phenomenal. Service could have been a little better, but we were seated in the outside tent. I’m sure inside the building it is up to par with the rest of the restaurant. Will certainly return.
