    We were inside the restaurant which is more quiet than the enclosed deck. It is very lively on the deck, but we were happy to be in the quiet area this time. The food is excellent and the service is always very good. We really like going here and we eat here a few times a year.

    My cousin received the fried dumplings and they were barely warm. She sent them back. Both of us got the crab spring rolls and again they were barely warm. We ate them because we were hungry. Not typical food for the night. Service was only OK. It was extremely crowded and our waitress is really running her butt off.

    Your food prices do not reflect the value. I ordered the scallops for $42 and there were 6 this scallops... Probably were sliced in half. Frozen looking soggy broccoli. A heaping amount of risotto which is minimal cost. The peppers and sauce were delicious, however the veal medallions shared the same sauce. Veal medallions we're less expensive than scallops which is unusual even in today's market prices. Three one inch slices of excellent & tender veal left you wanting more. The cod was beautifully displayed (as all dishes were) but tasteless. Boneless short rib dish was outstanding in both presentation and tenderness. I wondered however if the cut of meat was short rib or chuck??? I am completely aware of the increase in food prices. However, raising the prices and cutting corners is disgraceful. Hence why my VALUE rating is very poor.

    Food was good but not great. Prices are a bit on the higher side. Patio and bar have great ambiance but the rest of the restaurant reminds me of Olive Garden’s dining areas.

    Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Grille 3501. The best part of the meal was our appetizer - Steam Mussels. They were phenomenal! Our entrees were okay. My least favorite part was dessert. Peach Pie in a Jar was a little bland. They had a nice selection of wine.

    An excellent meal and pleasant, attentive service. We sat outside next to a larger group so the noise level was a bit high, but not to the point of detracting from the experience in any significant way.

    The menu was expansive - I think their appetizers and drinks were fun and inventive! The food was good - I don't know that I would expect to pay $30 a plate for it, but it was good. My one regret is that we made a reservation for our anniversary, but were placed in an area above the bar instead of in the main dining area, although we had made a reservation ahead of time. That was a bit unfortunate for the ambience, as obviously this was a louder area of the restaurant. Overall, I thought the experience was fine, not spectacular, but fine!

    Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday and the food was delicious. We enjoyed everything. I can’t say enough about the waitress, she made sure we had everything we needed and as the night went on she checked to make sure we were having a great time. We’ll definitely be celebrating more special occasions at grille 3501.

    Had a very pleasant meal with my granddaughter. Food and service was excellent. My only disappointment was that we could not dine at lunch in the older part of the restaurant, where the noise level would have been much lower. It was difficult at times to have a conversation given the noise level (particularly because I do not hear well). I am hoping in the future that part of the older portion of the restaurant will be open at lunch.

    We just dropped our daughter off at UDell and were on our way home. We were so sad and this is what we needed. The food was literally amazing and we will be putting this on our itinerary as a must stop when we visit her or pass through Allentown! We had the octopus, filet, and pork chop. All were fresh and cooked to perfection!

    Very noisy in the main dining room. Service was efficient, more robotic than pleasant, though. Food and drinks were good and priced right. When I made the reservation I mentioned it was a birthday celebration. There was no acknowledgement of that and nothing special offered to help celebrate the occasion. Why ask, then?

    The Cocktails are excellent, Great Bar Tender!!! Your Caesar Salad Dressing is one of the best. The Beef Short Rib was perfectly done and one of your signature main courses. The Filet Mignon was overcooked and dry, requested Med/Rare and received Med/Well, but still quite delicious. Could I recommend some upgrades to the Menu? Maybe a refreshed variety of Tapas? A French Dip Sandwich or Italian ciabatta sandwich?

    Service was spotty. Had made an online reservation the day before and wanted to sit inside bc of the heat. It was and cool upstairs but we got a crappy small table whilst every other couple had a nice big table. Took a while to get waited on. It was so noisy, we couldn’t hear the waitress or each other! When another couple left, we moved to a bigger tablet closer to the bar side. Still very noisy! Took a long time to get the food. I had a cold salad and my guest had the strudel. We didn’t stick around bc of the noise. Also, the menu has changed (again) and there weren’t many reasonable choices for lunch. There used to be! Blame it on COVID but I think it’s just price gouging! Won’t be back.

    Both of our entrees were wrong. The server took our order but didn’t write anything down. I asked for no onions on my steak but entree came with the onions on it. My wife received the wrong entree salad. The server took the salad back and replaced it with the right one.

    Unfortunately we were both disappointed. It was our 44th wedding anniversary and we heard such great things about this restaurant so we decided to drive almost an hour for what we hoped was a fabulous meal . Our meal was disappointing. Friends who had dined at the restaurant a few months ago loved it but something must have changed. Our special evening was average at best. We arrived a little early and had a nice drink at the bar. The bartender was excellent and she made great drinks and was very personable. Our waitress however was a bit unfriendly and seemed annoyed when I asked a question about one of the entrées. The fried calamari was chewy. My wife had the special red snapper filet with a seafood arrachinni rice ball and asparagus. The red snapper was delicious, but the rice ball was gooey. I had the seared scallops which came with 6 large scallops which were good but the crawfish risotto was tasteless. Creme brûlée was delicious! Once again, overall we were disappointed in what turned out to be an average meal and overall experience.
