I ordered from the lunch specials. The food was good, the portion was just the right amount for me, and the price was affordable! Overall, nice environment and a good place for family gathering.

Very nicely decorated, comfortable restaurant for well prepared imaginative Asian/Italian/French fusion cuisine. An excellent place for very fine lunch, which is an especially good value. Dinner is also quite fine, with rotating spacials and creative regular choices. Service has been attentive, wine list is OK, small and good, but not as adventuous as the food.

For $10, the lunch specials are very good for the price. We ordered a pork chop and sole fillet. The pork chop was tasty and very tender. The sole was crunchy outside, soft and tender inside. The entree also comes with half egg roll and a shrimp tempura. Both were very good. The salad on the plate was also very... More

We went to this restaurant at a friend's suggestion and it did not disappoint. We all got the special combo and it was wonderful. Two of our party got the pork and I got the sesame chicken. Everyone was very satisfied. So good! The decor is very nice and the service was attentive. The prices were totally reasonable.

The Sesame Grill is a nice, small fusion restaurant with a friendly staff and very good food. Most of their dishes are prepared with a touch of Asian fusion flavoring, and other dishes are prepared as more traditional fare. The flavors are very good, the ingredients are fresh and the meats are very tender and flavorable. In addition, the service... More

This is the place to go for fine French food at reasonable prices. Lunch special is highly recommended and is real value for money. Outside of the specials, the three or two course set menu is still quite reasonably priced considering the quality.

The service is always friendly and efficient. We have been going there since it opened in the mid 90s. The food is well presented. The rolls they bring to start the meal are outstanding. The menu is a little heavy on shell fish that we prefer not to eat, but there is always plenty of other items on the menu.... More

I guess there will always be detractors to any place. You can't please them all nor should a place try to. For me Sesame Grill has been a consistent place to dine albeit not as frequent as i would like. Chris and Joyce go out of their way to make one's dining experience enjoyable. The bread is to die for.... More
