The atmosphere was a bit stuffy for my taste and there were few people in the restaurant. Maybe this is just a sign of the current economy. If my friend didn't drag my in here, I would have passed. But there was ONE cute female there who happened to talk with me, so he is forgiven :)

The high - wine list by glass was excellent and they charged only double retail vs. 3 or 4x by other restaurants.

The low - price and quality. Look, when I order a $45 steak (filet), it better be good. Mine tasted like pot roast. Seriously.

So I don't plan to revisit this place. There was a steak house down the street that has prime aged filet for $25 and a better atmosphere. Pass on this a gawdy, boring, hotel restaurant.

The Grant Grill is a beautiful restaurant located in the Grant hotel. The aesthetics of the room are warm and sophisticated, creating a luxurious canvas on which to build a great dining experience. Of course, there's more to a dining experience than just the decor.

I talked my friend into trying the Grant so we went in and took a seat at the bar...why break with tradition. After studying the menu, I wanted to go with the paired-tasting selection. I was informed, however, that this is only available in the dining room--hmmm, strange. Anyway, rather than give up our seats (along with the chance of interacting with the one female bar patron), I adjusted my selection. I tried the Fois Gras appetizer, which was excellent; I always get Fois Gras when it's available since it will be gone before the end of the Mayan calendar.

The entree I went with was the Filet, which was a bit of a let down. The Oxtail ravioli accompaniment was bland and the Filet was dry and overcooked. This may not have bee as evident if meat hadn't been served cut in half--another think I didn't care for.

Dessert was OK; I went with the chocolate panna cotta dish, which was well paired with the 20yr tawny offered on the menu. I'll definitely give the Grant another whirl, but after one visit, they don't really compare with some of the other high-end steak houses in the area. Just my two cents.
