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.

The food was fine. The service terrific. Very few patrons. Understandable b/c it’s more of an older crowd hangout.
If you order a bottle of wine whatever you do, don’t order the Rombauer chard. $120 bottle and $30 a glass....absurd
Most of the wines are overpriced but this one is indefensible.
Restaurants have to understand that they have to luer people back. Exercising reasonable pricing (3X wholesale)
Would be a good starter. Or 1/2 price wine on Monday - Thursday for the next 180 days also works.

Our first time out during pandemic. Felt very safe. It was quiet, social distancing was in place. Waiter/staff respectful and the food was excellent!

Great place for some traditional American fare food. Their pot pie was so delicious and the crab cakes is a must!

This was the last day of freedom lunch date before the Co-Vid lockdown! After a morning of shopping at Saks we made a last minute lunch reservation at The Grill on the alley and we were so happy we did. Everything was delicious per usual. Service was impeccable and such a chill mood for a quick bite! I cannot wait until Dine-In resumes! See you soon!

Food & service was great, it was basically a ghost town (thanks coronavirus) but the staff were great.

Crab cakes are outstanding, they have the best sourdough bread.
Thought the lobster salad was a bit bland

Excellent food and perfect, cozy ambience for lunch or dinner. I always come here when I'm in town and they always remember me or act like they do. Friendly and welcoming. Busy restaurant, so reservations strongly recommended. Beef, chicken and fish selections are always first class.

From the moment I walked it was phenomenal. Valentine’s Day dinners can have tons of pressure and I picked the restaurant this year. I’m so happy that The Grill on the abbey was my choice it was a true dining experience. The staff was so poised and pleasant and ensured we were enjoying ourselves. The food was simply perfect for lack of a better word. The lobster bisque is a must and the cocktails are so delicious. The prices are surprisingly reasonable for what I would call a high class steakhouse. The ambiance was elegant yet hip and vibrant. I am for sure going back and telling everyone to go. I’m looking forward to trying their happy hour also. 5 stars!

Fantastic from start to finish. The place is tucked away in a side street off of Rodeo Drive and you get the sense of entering a speakeasy! Very cool atmosphere. We added a person to our party late and it was a non issue for the staff who accommodated is quickly and politely. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. The food was incredible. My steak was perfect and three of us had the Jon Dory which was incredible. Sides were generous and delicious.

A shout out to the bartender who made a masterful martini.

It was a pretty large dinner tab but, hey, it’s a high end steak house in Beverly Hills.

I was nervous that the new owners of my favorite restaurant would make changes to the decor, the menu, the staff--all of which I have loved for over 20 years. To my relief THE GRILL is exactly as it has always been-superb service, delicious identical menu and the same classic loving atmosphere. Congrats to the new owners for having the will to measure "progress" and profits by not changing anything!!!!!!!! By the way---"whats the specials list tonight?? ANSWER: THE GRILL ON THE ALLEY!!

All three fish entrees of Lake Superior whitefish, John Dory, and Dover Sole were excellent.
Over the many years we have walked through their door to enjoy a night out with old friends, the food and service have always been the same high quality. Consistency is always one of the keys to success in the restaurant business.
We had a great time!
