As my son and I still like a good lunch, we headed here to get a steak and fish. He had a tenderloin and I had the Chellean seabass. They prepared both disses to perfection. It impressed us very much to find this quality of restaurant in a mall. I would definetly recommend it. Service is very good, too.

I used to love Grill on the Alley. We went back last night, and I paid $46 for the worst steak I was ever served in a restaurant. The Caesar salad was fair. The chicken pot pie was good. The service was adequate. Five star prices but two star experience.

While on one of our shopping trips to Aventura Mall, we decided to try the Grill for it's food selection and amazing wine list - who would guess you could go shopping, and not leave the Mall and have a fine dinning experience. We were impressed from the start of our lunch dinning experience with greetings from the staff and... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at The Grill on the Alley in the Aventura Mall. The decor was very nice (although our server told us it was being changed). The service was professional and friendly. The food, while not "cutting edge" was very good. Our foursome enjoyed a steak, meatloaf and sushi and all was deemed to be very good.... More

We have dined here on a number of occasions and always enjoyed it. However our last visit was spoiled by a miserable and unhelpful waiter(Wilhelm) who displayed a cold and uninterested manner throughout the service. All the other waiting staff were far friendlier and far more engaging with diners. For this reason we shall not be returning.

They improved the restaurant; the food is still amazing and easier and faster for large groups with their new menu while keeping their traditional meals. Even with a large group (including a young baby) the service was amazing. I do recommend!

We went on Christmas Monday and they had a 30 minutes wait time. So we sat on the bar. I understand it's a busy day but the waiter was very short with us all the time. We had to ask for the bread after 20 minutes of being there, instead of him offering. We ordered a steak and it took... More

Quite impolite and tired hostess who asked to come in 20 min and then again asked to wait 15 min. The same with server. She trained runner just in front of the table thinking that we are probable are wooden dolls but not customers....

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.
