The place and the staff are very nice. Food is good enough and the specialty drinks are pretty good, but certainly not worth the price tags.

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.

We just had appetizers and salads. Salads were large - could have been a meal. Service was a bit slow, and server brought us the wrong bill, but overall a very nice evening.

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.

Love this place but my steak was overcooked and dry; usually, it is perfect! I will go back and give them another opportunity to make it great but still disappointed.

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.

Small filet mignon for the price. Would prefer a menu where you can select sides. For a few dollar more I will go to the Melt.

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!

Restaurant was great... I went on what probably was the busiest they've had since covid started. So it took a little while to get our food, but I kind of expected that... Drinks and appetizers came fast and were dam good... Entrees eventually came and were dam good too.. It was better than I expected.

Food is impeccable!!! I felt our server was a little too aggressive in wanting to clear plates, etc. Faux-pas- A server should never ask if a guest is ready to pay the check. While server was very attentive, the aggressiveness turned me off. This, however will not stop me from returning as I have always had a great experience here at 3501.

Our group of 4 truly enjoyed our lunch in the tent area. The food was delicious, our cocktails refreshing and though the weather was warm and humid, there was a breeze that kept us very comfortable. Eating outdoors is always fun!

Service was outstanding, food is never consistent. We order the same thing every time we dine here and it always looks and tastes different. Always good, sometimes great, but we only come here now when we’re up for a surprise, and that’s the reason why we can’t have this be our regular spot to dine.

There we were, three sisters who hadn’t seen each other since the pandemic started, under the tent and enjoying every minute of it. We started by sharing three appetizers: the crab cake, the dumplings and the spring rolls. All were excellent but our favorite were the spring rolls and their fantastic sauce. Then we moved on to the filet mignon done medium for all three of us (after all, we are sisters). The filet, asparagus and smashed potatoes were absolutely delicious. I would recommend Grille 3501 to anyone!!!!
