The Grill on the Alley Aventura is located in the Aventura Mall, which is ranked as the number one shopping destination among international visitors. The Grill on the Alley was opened in 1984 as a living tribute to the great American grills of yesterday. In time, it has established itself as one of the country's leading restaurants, praised by writers across the country. The menu is classic American grill - prime steaks, fresh seafood, traditional dishes such as chicken pot pie or meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and homemade desserts. Named to The Fine Dining Hall of Fame by Nation's Restaurant News, The Grill is home of the entertainment industry's "power lunch," but is also open for dinner seven days a week.

Excellent, attentive service. Everyone enjoyed their ordered dish. The lamb chops were a bit overpriced for the portion size and could have had a touch more seasoning. The brownie was ordered for dessert and was supposed to have sugared pecans. When it came out we were informed that they were out of pecans. We sent it back. That information should have been communicated prior to see if we still wanted the brownie. I would definitely recommend.

I should have known walking in for an 8 pm Saturday night reservation and the place was basically empty. the service was so-so, definitely not supportive of their high price point. The sirloin steak was was cool to the touch, like it had been cooked, left out in the open, until everything else was ready.

This was a birthday occasion, noted on the reservation. The server needed to be reminded at the end of the meal about the special occasion.

there are scores of top rated restaurants and Aventura Mall, but this is not one of them.

This was our third time in a week having dinner there. We have never been disappointed . We had filets this time and they were outstanding. They were prepared to perfection.
We really enjoy the restaurant and are never disappointed. The server was friendly without being obtrusive.
We will be back again and again

Food tastes good overall, but overpriced. Restaurant was relatively slow for a Saturday night in Avery crowded mall. I would have expected the service to be more attentive for the price and lack of crowd.

Horrible and will not be returning.
I ordered a steak medium-rare and it was well done. They replaced the steak and then it was raw in the centre. The it’s time it was alright. Waitress wasn’t very attentive. The manager was helpful but the meal wasn’t. Everyone was finished by the time I got something edible.

My Dover Sole was great, but the messed Cob salad, which usually amazing. Used a Caesar dressing and left out eggs, tomatoes etc. Upon asking one server ( not ours ) he replied it was a Cob. At the end our server came back and confirmed it was not made correctly. Having dined there for several years we know it’s usually a very good restaurant.

Food was over seasoned so all you tasted was the marinade not the meat. Mashed potatoes were blended with garlic so if you love garlic go fo it.
Desert was good. Service was great to greet us lots of attention,then never again. I’m suspecting because they add an 18% tip to your bill so the waiters don’t care about the service.
