For dessert we ordered the Lava Cake. It eas also so yum! Such a happy dining experience. Happy to recommend. Will certainly come back. Staff very friendly. 3 from the Philippines. Nice atmosphere.

We had ordered the Ribeye and also the grade 7 wagyu and oh boy the taste was lovely. The price premium you have to pay for this lovely meal reflects the premium status of the meat they are grilling for you. The onion flower dish is unique and just lovely, but it's a bit too much for just 2 especially... More

Visited Grill Bar on Christmas Eve with my family. The food was good but the overall customer experience was terrible. The wait staff did not understand how the the Set Menus were being packaged and even upon clarifying twice, they still got it wrong and we ended paying a bomb for a meal that we thought would be lesser. Despite... More

This is THE steakhouse we must visit when we come to JB every time. No exception. We came for a piece of tender juicy steak cooked to perfection on our last night here. We didn't have reservation but we arrived early so there were still tables available. Note to self. Book a table before coming especially on a weekend night.... More

back again and not disappointed. food is good and worth the expense. a 3 course meal plus alcohol will set you back rm200. it is nice to bring a date if you want to impress with delicious food and equally nice a place to be with family and friends.

Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive throughout our time there. We ordered two Angus steaks and a lobster bisque prawn pasta for mains and an onion bomb for starters. It all looks impressive presentation wise - sizeable steaks, huge portion of chips and spinach etc. Steaks were cooked to perfection - medium rare actually came out medium rare! However,... More

Looks like they have a supplement menu for foreigners. The price of the steaks are marked out with a sharpie on the main menu, then they bring you a separate price list. I suspect it's different for different guests. 300rm for a steak ! It would not be this much in the Mandarin Oriental in Singapore's marina bay!! What planet... More
