We serve lunch at THE GRILL at both THE GRILL and THE POOL. You may be seated in either THE GRILL or THE POOL. The menus are the same during lunch service. You may make a request to be seated in either room, however, we cannot guarantee seating in a specific room.

THE GRILL is a mid-century American Chophouse created by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torrisi. ​It is housed in the only landmarked restaurant in New York inside the iconic Seagram Building and takes great inspiration from it's surroundings.

As it's name implies, the grill is meaningful to the restaurants style, service and food. Major Food Group takes great pride in celebrating the tradition of great food and great fun in one of the world's greatest restaurant spaces.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

The place looks really nice, as soon as you enter you know this is gonna be an expensive meal cause all the super friendly staff at the entrance. The tableside mushroom omelet is a meh a none wordy experience to remember as the over mashed potatoes that they called "whip". The bread basket was great. For me the star of the evening was the reason I went there, the Prime Rib. This cut was perfectly cook and seasoned a truly masterpiece a thick, juicy, delicious medium rare perfection. If I were you stick with the star of the show and ignore all the fancy side dishes.

Oh my gosh where to start. Everything was incredible, not matter how good reviews are you always get worried about going somewhere for a very special occasion you truly just want everything to be amazing.... boy oh boy was it!!
The food was incredible the ambiance was incredible he wine list was out of this world. It was my birthday and I had the best birthday yet. One of the stand out things though was the service and especially our waitress. She was OUTSTANDING... Eliya Miller. She was so informative, fun, not to snobby considering it is fine dinning, she made my experience literally the best dinner I have ever had thank you to The “Grill” I had a fantastic time from start to beginning

Exceptional quintessential NY steak house. Big jazz music influence. Excellent service and fantastic food. No negatives except they didn't have Blue Curacao. Makes no sense when plenty of drinks use it and they have a ton of bottles, it should be there.

The reservations office lost my appointment then found it- after making me wait an hour - then the waiter spilled a glass of water in my Birkin bag also spilling all over me and the table - I was soaked so was my bag and all the contents - a napkin was put over the spill not even a new table cloth and I was sent a dessert as an apology with a 1k bill and my purse is soaked and everything was soaked inside and now it’s stained - the manager came over and apologized and did nothing - the service was AWFUL and the experience was AWFUL the food was good but I was appalled at everything else

Our waiter was snobby and rude. We picked the grill after reading how iconic it is in NYC and when we asked questions about menu items to our waiter he told us we were over thinking it and making it a bigger deal than it needed to be. He should have cared more about our experience and the reputation of the restaurant. Totally ruined the dinner for us.

We specifically chose The Grill to celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary with the “celebrated” prime rib entree. From start to finish, everything was perfect - service, food exceptional! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to returning repeatedly.

The Grill is a recommended place for a classic dinner in a fabulous mid-century space. The crowd of all ages was smartly dressed, ranging from stylishly casual to full-on business. The food is expertly prepared and delicious. The service is attentive and professional. Expensive, yes, but you get an amazing experience in return. The room is lively, especially at 8:30pm, when the bar and restaurant were both at capacity. If it were up to me, I'd turn down the music volume. That being said it wasn't bothersome and we enjoyed a lovely, romantic dinner.

Lovely place with fabulous ambiance and even better music. Staff was amazing. Very pricy but it was a worthwhile since food was exceptional.
I asked for one item from the menu and I have been told that the quality of dish I wanted to order was not satisfactory for the chef so I order something else from the menu. They have not charged us for my starter which I think was extremely nice touch. Well done.

The best prime rib in town. I've been to plenty of NY steak houses but have never had a prime rib this good. Must go. Also, best service in town. They make you feel like you stepped back in time when people cared about your experience. The only downside is price, but it's worth it for special occasions.

We dined here for our anniversary on Monday evening. Setting was beautiful with outstanding food. Our server was very polite and excited to have us, he even offered us a complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We felt very welcomed by him. We did not however feel welcomed by the ladies at the hostess desk. We were likely a little flushed after rushing from another event to make our reservation in time. Additionally... while my husband had changed, I was still in the formal attire I had worn for said event. This was too clearly very amusing to the hostess staff who should be professional enough to remain composed and hold their expressions and opinions until out of view of their guests. These ladies did not represent the establishment well upon our arrival or our departure. Otherwise, a lovely experience.

excellent experience from the first moment when the reception staff greets you warmly- no arrogance or attitude-- and ushers you upstairs to the beautiful subdued elegance of the main dining area in which you can actually hear your table mates speak. Every single staff member is efficient, accomodating, cheerful and kind. Superb waiter. Food presentation lovely, everything delicious. Expensive but worth it.

Honestly, one of the BEST dining experiences. Incredibly thoughtful staff, awesome service, beautiful space and classic ambiance. We were in such a rush, having screwed up our own evening, including a scrambled arrival after having trouble finding a cab in city construction, but in an hour we were treated like old friends, and it made OUR WEEK in NY. Thank you to ALL the staff at The Grill! Hope to be back ASAP!
