The Grill on the Alley Restaurant Review

: This suburban edition of Beverly Hills’ famed The Grill on the Alley retains the clubby environment of the original with its cozy leather booths, abundant dark wood and starched white linen, while adding some more contemporary accents. The menu is modeled after its predecessor, too, showcasing reliable classics like Caesar salad and The Grill Wedge, steaks and chops, braised short ribs and brick chicken, all consumed with hand-crafted cocktails or wines from a more than respectable list heavy on big name California and French producers. Guests begin with Grill standards like the mixed field greens with blue cheese dressing, an abundant shrimp cocktail or pan-seared sea scallops, before moving on to USDA Prime steaks, jumbo lump crab cakes or specials like a Parmesan-crusted Chilean sea bass with mustard sauce. Desserts include signatures like carrot cake and house-made Key lime pie. Despite crisp execution by a seasoned, professional staff, this locale doesn’t offer quite the same pampered experience as the Beverly Hills outpost, but it’s a good option in Westlake Village’s restaurant repertoire.
