Italian
The Grill at Grossi Florentino is situated on the ground floor of our two-storey venue. This is the epitome of sophisticated, casual dining the Tuscan way. Simple food that’s based on fresh local and premium imported ingredients with the emphasis on seasonality, and home or artisan grown produce.

“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.

Meal was beautiful but servings were small and we left still hungry. Paying $75 for a two course meal, I feel the servings could have been bigger. A bit disappointing.

Table booked for 8pm. Not ready until 8:20. Steak supposed to be M/R came out M/WD. Very disappointed. Staff great. Kitchen was closed by the time we had an opportunity to complain about steak.

I booked lunch to celebrate my daughter's graduation from uni as a special occasion, she requested somewhere fancy and wasn't disappointed. From walking in the service was impeccable, our meal was delicious and beautifully presented . If I had to pick on anything it was a little noisy. Overall a wonderful experience.

Great food and service. Lovely authentic atmosphere. The only negative was the entree and mains came out too quickly. There was only a couple of minutes between each so that spoilt the atmosphere somewhat. Overall it was good!

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

The Florentino Grossi Grill was the perfect choice to celebrate my partner's 70 birthday. Dinner, service and ambience made the night unforgettable.
