Nice place but a priced a bit high. The food was great, but the entrees were expensive. Was the food good? Yes, but if I'm spending that amount I'd rather go to some other spots in Portland.The food was tasty and the server was new, but very helpful and willing to ask questions in the kitchen. The drinks were well made.No kids menu. They do not offer pasta or other options so I had to get my daughter a $30 burger.

Amazing steaks, great sides and an awesome ambiance. Wait staff was on point with everything and it definitely lived up to all the hype I had heard from friends. Looking forward to coming back another time. I would recommend reservations because it is quite busy.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff! Ryan and Chelsea do a great job at the bar. Myles does a great job in the dining room. If your lucky enough to be paired with any of them, your going to have an amazing time.

I believe this is the best dirty martini I've ever had. Ryan, the bartender, is awesome. He took good care of us and made us feel so welcome. I give the Grill Room my highest recommendation!

Food was impressive, ambiance was cozy, service was fantastic. Perfect place for dinner with a love, friends, or family. Bartender (I think his name was Ryan,) was truly top notch. Solid drinks, great personality, and really added to the fun without being intrusive.

You won't find many places like this in Maine. I've been several times and each time has been a great experience. The steaks are always grilled the way you want over a hardwood grill - so tasty.The mussels were delicious as well. Having tried mussels in many places down in the Old Port, this place competes with the best. They use Bangs Island which are the only mussels I'd eat - PEI mussels are sandy and not as fresh.

Incredible dinner and even better service. The staff was exceptional, including the hostess who thanked my husband and I for only waiting a short time for our tables. Our server, Ryan, was fantastic even though it was a little rainy outside where we were eating, and shared a ton about his favorite places to go in Bar Harbor (where we were going next) and where to stop along the way. We have a few days left but so far have taken all of his advice and it’s all exceptional. He made a great dinner experience and exceptional one.

Wife and I went here before we left Maine because we were tired of seafood. Too much surf, not enough turf. The food was fantastic, I enjoyed the French Onion soup and the duck breast was a tasty change of scenery for my palate. The service at the bar was great, the bartender was pleasant and informed us it wasn't a very busy night compared to the prepandemic, however, the service at the table was severely lacking. She rarely checked on us and we had to go chase down our boxes and check, and she deflected and said it was a busy night. Our food actually came out before a bachelor's party that was seated before us. If it wasn't for the Hostess, I would have given this place a three star rating. She was amazing and made things happen.

After moving to North Carolina I have been searching for a steakhouse as good as this and still have not dou d it after 6 years. The staff, food and drinks compare to nothing else. Steak and Cheese is amazing. The best French 75 cocktail. The hanger steak with chimichurri is like nothing else and worth waiting for more than 2 years to have again. Welcome back The Grill Room!

It was nice revisiting the Grill Room post pandemic. The food and service was top notch. My only complaint was that it was so loud where we were seated it was difficult to not only hear what the wait staff was saying but also to carry on a conversation across the table.

Tonight's service was outstanding from the time we set forth in the door until the time we left. Our table wasn't quite ready so we sat at the spacious bar for less than 10 minutes. When we arrived at our table, Our waitress offered complimentary champagne for our anniversary celebration. The food was cooked to perfection. I especially loved the grilled carrots. I would recommend this restaurant in the heart of Portland to locals and visitors alike.
