Grossi - Grill
“In my earliest memories of childhood I can see the kitchen, a place where all would come, filled with these familiar smells, and the laughter of people that love each other and with the anticipation of flavours to come”. ?Guy Grossi
The Grill is the embodiment of this, personal service and the buzz of the open kitchen creating a magnificent atmosphere. One that is centred around ‘La Griglia’, where the Grill derives its name, is always full of the finest aged meats sourced from various producers, and the constant quest for the best quality ingredients. This is a fundamental of our philosophy. The Grill is truly an extension of the Italian kitchen’s soul.
Waited 25mins for our drinks then were rushed to order our food. Entree was nice but not for the price. Pastas we’re ok, I’ve had better. Staff were inattentive and treated us like we didn’t know what we were talking about when my husband inquired about the kingfish. Mind you my husband is a chef who knows exactly what he’s talking about. No one bothered to ask how our meals were either. No tip was left for these pathetic miserable sad waiters
food was amazing. our drinks order went missing and we had to chase it, otherwise would have been 10/10
Going to the Grill has always been a special occasion and so for our wedding anniversary it was an obvious choice for us. It was firstly disappointing to be seated 2 meters from the entrance door, normally this wouldn't have been a problem but last Saturday night was particular cold and there was a lot of traffic coming in and out of the restaurant. Initial drinks orders were taken with a glass of wine taking 30 minutes to materialise, this was after twice asking where it was. Later drinks also took a long time to get to the table with constant reminders being given. The food was very good but again the coffee at the ned of the meal was forgotten and required constant reminder to have it delivered. All in all it was a bit disappointing. When my wife and myself left we both commented that it would be unlikely that we would return.
Always absolutely perfect experience dining at Grossi!
On arrival our table wasn’t ready so we were sent next door to have a drink. Upon entering there was no service, we had to ask to order a drink
We also needed to ask the waiter to check if our table was ready, otherwise we would have been left in the bar.
Grossi Grill was understaffed. The service was slow. The worst part of our evening (we were celebrating our anniversary) commenced after a group of 4 were seated next to us. They were obviously drunk, were speaking very loudly and every second word was the “F” word or similar. We could not hear each other. The wait staff did nothing to quiet them down as their behavior was not in keeping with the reputation or ambience that Grossi is striving to achieve.
The food was good but not exceptional
We left disappointed and will not likely return
Thank you we thoroughly enjoyed the evening we will be back
Great service and food ! Would definitely go back again when I visit Melbourne next time
A very nice touch of Guy coming over to the table to say hello and see if we were happy with everything
Very disappointed after being so excited to finally be going.
No eye fillet available what a joke when you have it as a regular item! Porterhouse for $50 on its own and tough.
Food below average for price charged
Sublime. Service outstanding!
Flavours of food amazing!
Great place excellent staff one of Melbourne’s best business lunch venues
Outstanding service as usual. Super friendly staff that made our son’s birthday an amazing experience (which is why we keep going back every year). Beautiful food.
As always our visits to Florentino is always exceptional with the best service, delicious menu and superb to sit outside on the pavement setting.
We thought we could have been in Italy!!!
Great food and atmosphere. Really enjoyed our lunch with the Grossi team.
Had a great night. Food was amazing and lovely ambiance
As return customers, we once again anticipated superb "everything-to-expect" in a restaurant, and Grossi - Grill did it again ... even to the point of (without announcement) two Happy Birthday plates being delivered, appropriately and without our prior knowledge, to our table.
We wish also to give a special mention to the wait staff; we felt very welcome at all times.
We'll be back.
Every dish was delicious. Great wine and cocktail list.
Great night, service was really good and food was great
The whole experience was amazing. Staff service and knowledge was remarkable. The food was sensational.
My husband and I will definitely be returning and recommending.
Always fabulous. Never missed a beat. Fundamentally ate too much but it’s an easy thing to do with the culinary excellence on offer here.
We always have a wonderful time at Grossi Grill, and go there frequently for work celebrations. The service is outstanding, no special requests are a problem. Giving four stars for the food this time, as two of us who ordered medium rare steak got more medium than medium rare. But still delicious.
First time customer so I really wanted to enjoy it. I esp wanted to support Guy Grossi cos i think he would be totally genuine fella. Anyway, all restaurants have struggled during COVID so I might give them another chance after COVID.
Always amazing food and service. Somehow, eating here is special occasion, without the occasion.
The perfect place for a beautiful night out. The food, wine selection and service was exceptional and I can’t wait to come back and dine again. I would have loved to see some decorations/flowers on the table however that’s being really picky. Highly highly recommend.
An excellent meal, with personal service including good advice on a suitable glass of wine. We feel so sorry that the pandemic has interrupted them again. Can't wait until we all have the vaccine and restaurants like this can strut their stuff.
Great service from our waiter, very nice food and highly recommended at least once
The Florentino Grossi Grill was the perfect choice to celebrate my partner's 70 birthday. Dinner, service and ambience made the night unforgettable.
We celebrated our 27th anniversary at The Grill and as always it was a memorable experience. From the moment Mohammad greeted us at the door we knew it was going to be a Wonderful afternoon. The food and the service was sublime, our every request was greeted with a smile and the staff's attention to detail was impressive. Every dish we ordered was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. My husband's standout dish was the swordfish along with the Tedeschi glass of wine he had with his meal. Whilst I enjoyed everything I ate my favourite was the pistachio torta- best cake I've had.
Thank you Mohammad and all the other staff for making our anniversary lunch so special.
One of the few restaurants in the CBD open for lunch. Service was exceptional. Set menu with plenty of options.
Lovely staff, excellent food and great value for money. We really enjoyed our night out.
Efficient staff and meals were served in a timely manner.
Recommend this restaurant
We were disappointed that the cost of lunch had more than doubled since covid lockdown. We understood why, but were disappointed nonetheless. Our meals cost us close to $100 each for lunch, and this was unexpected. Parts of the meal were bland, and some of our plates were removed before we had finished with them. The wait staff were courteous and very helpful, and are to be commended. Realising our disappointment, our waiter tried to make up for this, and provided us with a complimentary dessert wine. I would still recommend them, but am not sure how soon we will be back.
Excellent food and staff. Staff really went out of their way to cater for our dietary requirements. A truly wonderful experience.
Great food. Service amazing. Busy and noisy, but expected that. Recommended.
Excellent food and service thanks for a memorable lunch
Beautiful atmospheric space with wonderful staff and food/wine to match !
