We celebrated our 34th anniversary with a stay in Princeton and dinner at the Witherspoon Grill. The staff presented us with champagne and our service was attentive and professional. Food was delicious and plentiful. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

I am a long term customer of the grill. We went for a steak dinner at 4. The dry aged steaks were great. The wine starts to improve with the progress that Will made. But it is still too noisy. They put loud this bass...More

This is our favorite upper end restaurant in Princeton for couples and for business. Have never had a bad dish and have eaten here a dozen times. It’s pricy but worth it. The dry aged steak is always perfect, burgers are excellent, go crazy and...More

Yes--you can sit at the bar and order the same food as at a table. There are also some bar-height tables adjacent to the bar area for the same purpose.
