The owners of the restaurant, john and Terri, are always on site and actively involved in the food preparation, service and customer interaction. There is a basic menu with great appetizers, main courses and desserts and there are always several appetizer and entire specials. A favorite of my wife is the Pusan dinner - a very tasty chicken dish - and a very generous portion. There is a good wine list and the atmosphere provides a relaxed meal. It is one of our favorite go-to places.

Absolutely, hands down, one of the best meals, from start to finish, we have had in a very long time in Montgomery! We had the tuna appetizer, each had a salad, NY bone in strip, Snapper and caramel cheese cake. TO DIE FOR...every single bite. It is a pricey date night but so well worth it and will do again and again! Service was fantastic, atmosphere is quaint.

City Grill moved last year from a simple strip mall to a pleasant setting in Hampstead, a new up-scale residential/business community. It was always one of Montgomery's finest restaurants, but I think it took a step up in all-round quality when it moved. The entrance to the restaurant is into a reception/eat-in bar area. Tables and booths are located in three dining areas and a private room for groups. The decor is modern, light grey and white with dark finished concrete floors and exposed ceiling utilities. It has to grows on you, if you are used to the lush coziness of many fine restaurants, but it does, and now I find it comfortable. The menu is limited, but that is not a negative. It's largest selection is an eclectic variety of appetizers. Several salads and entrees complete the choices. The entrees are another eclectic but limited collection, beef, bird, lamb, and seafood, some exceptional choices. The big surprise is the number of specials offered each evening. They are almost as many special entrees as there are entrees on the main menu, again an eclectic selection that is so attractive that I find it hard to choose -- a very nice problem to have, and we enjoy trying to decide every time. As a result, City Grill probably has the most unusual and exciting menu in town. It is a fine dining experience that I recommend highly. In addition, the reception is very generous and helpful. We always enjoy their welcome. The service is also very good, some or the best in town. I recommend City Grill very highly.

So glad our friends took us to City Grill the other night. It was a great experience from start to finish. Fantastic service, great mood/environment, and unbelievable food. I had the seafood pasta dish, and it was tremendous. The grilled shrimp were perfect. Salad dressing on my wife's salad was sooo good. My brownie cake with homemade peanut butter ice cream was delicious. In fact, even the table bread and butter were fantastic : )
It's only been one visit, but I'm sure City Grill will be in, at least, our top 3 favorite places to eat in Alabama.
Thanks again John & Terry , and we look forward to dining with you all very soon.

City Grill has move to the lovely area of Hampstead, a suburb of Montgomery. The ambiance is great at the new location and much roomier than their previous location. We took out of town company there for dinner and we were all impressed with the service and the food.
