    Service is top notch. I had the ostrich which was a little on the salty side but still good. The mash had burnt pieces of onion which did not taste very good. The unburnt food was good.

    Great Food and Service. The heating for the enclosed porch seatIng by the loft was very uneven. It was either too hot or cold, but only affected the seats a directly under the overhead heaters. Would probably request to seat somewhere else.

    I’ve never been disappointed eating at Grille 3501. The menu has a nice variety, and the chef does a wonderful job, and the food was served rather quickly. I met a long time friend for a dinner, we haven’t seen each other in a long time, so we talked quite a while. Our server was very kind, was very attentive, and allowed us to catch up. Thank you!

    It has been some time since our last visit to Grille 3501. We are generally very satisfied with our experience, but this time we had an exceptional dinner. It started with a great drink. Years ago we experienced a Pimm's Cup cocktail from an old time bartender, Tom. We loved the drink and Tom was generous enough to share his recipe with us. I recorded the recipe on my iphone. We requested a Pimm's Cup drink on this visit since its a drink we really like. Our waitress couldn't find the bar recipe and I advised her of our previous experience with Tom, and gave her the recipe from my iphone. The drink arrived in moments and was as good as Tom made for us years earlier. A very good start to our evening. Our evening got better as the meal progressed. My starter was the charbroiled octopus over a citrus celery salad. Outstanding starter. My wife and I shared the spiced pecan and goat cheese salad. Also very good. For our entrees I had the seared sea scallops with risotto and my wife had the short ribs. Both were good size portions, served piping hot with great flavors. For desert we had the Pumpkin Pasties. Great way to end a fabulous meal. We are glad we made a return visit and will stop in again.

    Took my mother out for her birthday lunch here and was excited by the menu and reviews I saw online, but while the food was beautifully presented, it was mediocre. Nothing we ate made us want to come back for more, in fact we didn’t finish any of our plates. It was super noisy and very difficult to talk or hear each other at noon. Our server was outstanding though and that was the best part. It seems like a great place but for the expensive price of lunchtime starters, salads, and entrees (no drinks, just water) my bill ended up at $85! For lunch. I planned on the expense, but expected a whole lot more deliciousness for the price and what the menu on paper reads. Sorry, just not impressed by the food and that’s what keeps me coming back.

    Well, did put on here that there was to be no pork for this reservation. However, pork was served with the chicken entrees. Might have been our fault for not communicating with the waitress. Nonetheless, that has no impact on the rating. Restaurants who have small menus tend to do better and cooks tend to be an expert and nailed down the menu. So I had high expectations for this restaurant and the reviews that I have read. What impacted this rating was the cup with water had a floater, which is an indication of not a clean restaurant. The gnocchi was surely over saturated in butter, that was burned due to color and taste. The seared salmon was seared on the outside but still cold on the inside. The spinach came cooked but was cold. The parsnip was tasty but also cold. The chicken was tasty, the rice tasted boxed. It wasn’t up to standards in my opinion. The drinks Merlot and red bow tie were exceptional. The bread was fresh and soft and so was the olive oil that came with a sprinkle of pepper. The deserts were both a highlight of the meal I would recommend the chocolate Crackling cake and the maple cheesecake. A reservation was made and they sat us promptly. The waitress was polite and it seemed that the restaurant was short handed as everyone was moving a rush and the front end assisting.

    Wow - on the food! We ordered the gnocchi and the dumplings for our appetizers. Our entrees we very good, the scallops were delicious and the presentation was so pretty. My husband ordered the pasta special. Our drinks were great. Our issue was the noise - we felt like we were in college in a bar. The only seating they had was in the upstairs area over the bar. The rest of the restaurant was not being used, just the bar area and room above the bar. This was our first time dining at Grill 3501 - for spending over $200, we were hoping for a quieter dining experience!

    After not dining here for many years after consistently bad experiences with wait staff & the kitchen when requesting modifications because of food allergies & medical issues, we tried Grille 3501 again & were pleasantly surprised. The menu is lovely, the wait staff was very nice & knowledgeable about the menu & most importantly, modifications were handled well.

    The experience at Grille 3501 was very good. My partner and I selected meat entrees for appetizers and entrees. The meat was cooked to perfection and the pork chop was the best either of us had ever tried. The venison appetizer was excellent, and the ostrich was cooked well, but the taste of the meat was overpowered by too much salt. Everything in general was very salty, which was the largest downside. If they cut back on the salt by half, I would have rated the food higher. Overall a good experience. But next time I'd ask for less salt to be added to the food (if possible).

    Just here last month and returned to celebrate a birthday. The venison and hanger steak were perfectly cooked. The salmon entree was crispy on the outside the way I like it. Our cocktails were a hit too. We finished with desert and our server was thoughtful to have a birthday candle placed on the chocolate cake. We will definitely be returning.

    We had asked not to sit near the inside bar, because we knew that could get noisy, however the noise level in the dining room was excessive, so much so, our service was literally raising her voice so we could hear her. The group on the other side of our wall-window was so loud we could barely hear each other. Server had way too many tables, felt bad for her. Vegetarian entree was fair….like a chili with eggplant and beans, didn’t love.

    The wife and I went here last night for the second time the drinks were quick and good ambience was good as well. I ordered the special which was bison. The manager came over to apologize that they are out of it and could substitute a steak and the wife got salmon, both meals tasted amazing. Will be going back again.
