The Grill on the Alley Restaurant Review

: While its name says “on the alley,” this location of The Grill chain is inside Fairmont San Jose. The look, like the food, is retro but stylish. Masculine touches include dark-stained wood and lots of leather. The comfortable bar, showcasing vintage photos of San Jose, is a magnet for downtown business people. Oysters and traditional steakhouse salads are part of the starting lineup. The menu features traditional prime rib, lamb chops and a New York strip, as well as fish and seafood. Pastas and a grilled vegetable platter suit the less carnivorous. Portions are hefty. Daily happy hour specials add to the allure. Other locations.
