The Grill on Hollywood Restaurant Review

: The Grill on the Alley, a Beverly Hills institution and perennial favorite among Hollywood agents and their clients, is now a chain, although none of the other locations have the same aura of exclusivity as the original. The first spinoff was this branch at the Hollywood & Highland complex. The restaurant, adjacent to The Dolby Theatre --- home of the Oscars --- has a dark, opulent bar-and-grill interior and professional service. The menu concentrates on comfortable American classics like Cobb and shrimp Louie salads, heavy-duty burgers, steaks and chops. Guests begin with Grill standards like steak tartare or the signature chopped salad with blue cheese dressing, before moving on to Prime steaks, trout amandine or chicken potpie. Desserts include strawberry shortcake and Key lime pie. The prominent circular bar dispenses a martini worthy of Old Hollywood, while an extensive wine list offers some prestigious reds to complement a steak-centric celebration. Conscious of its tourist-friendly locale, this outpost has a wide patio with outdoor tables overlooking the whole H & H scene from a top-floor balcony.

The Grill at Hollywood and Highland

What's the big deal about the Grill at Hollywood Highland?
Our server let our dishes pile up on the table. Also, where are the busboys? When you clear dishes from the table, don't stack them on the table first and then take them off. I mean, I'm paying 8 bucks for a glass of wine, bozo.
My trout almandine was a sliver of moist trout HEAPED with a candy like topcoat of a chopped salty sweety almond crumble. (A layer of almond compote almost as thick as the fish and in some places, thicker!) I had to scoop off the topcoat crumble to get to the thin fish underneath. With a thimble of white wine sauce with it? Um, no.
The crab cake appetizer with beurre blanc was... quite good I guess. Fresh crab lightly pressed in a simple seared cake formation. But, what. What about it was so knock my socks off that I want to come back here? Was this experience so quintessentially classic that it screamed "traditional Continental Cuisine? "Um, okay, I guess. Sort of.
I think I spent too much on trout, broccoli, one glass of wine and espresso. I guess I'm just jaded, but where's the value? This restaurant is acceptable, I guess, but with competition being what it is today, what's such a good deal about The Grill at Hollywood and Highland? I felt like I got ripped off, but everything was executed so decently, I couldn't complain.
