Disclaimer: Citysearch won't let me say what I want so instead of the word I need to use we will use another, it is the word that rhymes with "coaches"
Oh how disappointed I am! This used to be my favorite restaurant but alas it is no more. I used to long for their chocolate sushi and the dimly lit ambiance that is Sunset but my last visit has stopped me in my tracks forever from going back. I was eating with a friend in the bar and suddenly my friends face froze and the waitress was called over. I never looked but when the waitress pulled a napkin out of her apron and started beating the back side of my booth I knew it was bad. My friend told me then that it had been a "coach". I could not believe that this happened at my FAVORITE restaurant. It was terrible. At the time I was just so grossed out at the situation that I couldn't really think but we actually paid for the meal - which is totally not okay. Anyway, "coaches" only live around filth and where there is one there are a thousand. Seriously, I know that it is hard to keep a restaurant clean, I have worked in a few myself, but "coaches" are where you just have to draw the line. Eat at your own risk.
Great food, wine and vibe. I hadn't been to Sunset Grill in quite a while, but a friend suggested and I am so glad he did. We made an 8pm reservation and while they were busy we were seated promptly. The server (I wish I got his name) was friendly and knowledgeable. He suggested a wine that I fell in love with. I ordered a salmon dish, a special and it was delicious!! I wish it was on the main menu! The atmosphere was pleasant. Totally Great vibe. If you haven't been in a while check it out! Great dining experience!
Missed the Mark. I've been to some great 4 star restaurants around the country and this one missed the mark. We had a reservation for 7:30 however we still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The main dining area is cramped, you are right on top of the table next to you. The server was friendly but slow. Food was just okay, not impressive at all. I ordered Pork Ossobucco with a jalapeno barbecue sauce and it was bland. Not worth the money at all. Try Cabana across the street if you want good food at a decent price. Same owners but much better atmosphere. Also try Radius10 for a delicious high end meal.
Misinformation on Menu.....not great food!!!. Had out of town company, reservations for 9pm. Arrived promptly, seated promptly. Special menu listed Stone Crab Claws (5 claws for $30) menu also listed next to the claws - "with Joes famous mustard dipping sauce". We are HUGE admirers of Joes in South Beach and are familiar with their sauce and asked the waiter if it is indeed "Joes". We were assured that it was the Real Deal!!! How disappointing when it arrived and was tasted like a poor rendition of the original. We pointed this out to the waiter who later apologized to us and said it was not authentic Joe's Mustard Sauce. Additionally, the crab claws, while a decent size, were not of the quality I would expect for the price. We have no problem spending top dollar for good food, but paying top dollar for substandard really irks us. Two Good Points - The restaurant did tell us that dessert would be on them due to the misinformation. Also weekend nights, bottles of wine are half price. Back to the food. In addition to the crab, we ordered calamari as an appetizer. At $12 - it was terrible, tasted like frozen calamari that was breaded and the breading undercooked. Had a raw flour taste to it. Red/green peppers were also mixed in and were the best part of the dish. The cocktail sauce is lackluster. An entree of Lobster ravioli was ordered by one of our dining party and while the concept was ok, the dish was way too busy and overpowered by blue cheese and apples in the dish. The scallops were ok as was the tenderloin. The port ossobucco was decent. Additionally, they advertise a free powerball ticket to be given with every bottle of wine ordered. We never saw a lottery ticket. Dessert, which was on the house was fine, the creme brulee was good, the flavor was great the sugar top was fair (too thin, only covered half of the dish). Presentation was good for most things. But overall, very disappointed. Felt very rushed as courses were brought out before the prior ones were finished.
Highly overrated and overpriced.. Some friends and I went to Sunset Grill a few nights ago hoping for some good food and a nice atmosphere. We were very dissapointed. The food was mostly inedible. I got a burger and could not eat it. It was cold and tough, I couldn't even cut it with my knife. The bite I did have tasted awful, so I just gave up. Others in the party had pasta (also cold) and chicken as well as salads. No one enjoyed their food. The service was horrible. The waitress got our orders wrong, brought some people food then 10 to 15 minutes later brought the others food. After that she never came back to see how we were doing. When she brought the check she didn't bother to ask why no one had eaten their food and didn't stick around long enough for us to tell her we weren't happy. We will never be back there. It cost me over $20 and the only thing I could consume was my glass of water. And, for a $20 glass of water one would at least think you could expect to get a refill.
Inventive Food and Service.
Our group of 13 ranged in age from 12 - 50+; all were pleased; service was excellent; our server was very knowledgeable and helpful through the extensive wine offerings; all were paired nicely.
On 12/30/07 The shuttle picked us promptly from the hotel and upon arriving our table was quickly prepared and readied for our 8:00 reservation. Tableside service was prompt, courteous and helpful.
Greatly recommend to those that want something different. Our children enjoyed the vegetable stir fry; I had the lemon sole special of the evening and it was wonderful.
very disappointing. My significant other had been to SG previously, so we decided to venture out for a special evening. Boy this was a huge let-down! The appetizer had spoiled tomatoes on it?meaning they were sour and black! My husband found a long black curly hair in his entree', and the wait staff couldn't care less. My side item was cold and hard as rock. After bringing the problem to the attention to the wait staff they made no attempts to correct the problem or even fix it other than to take the dish away. Way to expensive for this kind of service and food
Interesting ingredients = Great dinner!. I recently enjoyed dinner at Sunset Grill. The dinner menu was extensive and each item offered many unique flavors and ingredients. I was very happy with the recommended wines for each item. I will definitely return to this restaurant!
Randy got us corner table. They were packed last nite, so Randy R was nice enough to cop us a corner table on the 20th avenue part of the patio seating. Anyway we had a truffle burger and a plate of venison. Both were good like the food always is here. Shared a bottle of cheap white Casa Lapostolle.
