We originally wanted a seafood platter to share for dinner and as it was offered we ordered it. Now it was fairly good but a lot less value and flavour than we thought a $145 would get us.

So as we were still hungry we got a jap export scotch steak and a side of mushrooms, and I tell you it one of the best steaks I have had and the mushrooms were silky smooth and divine.

So lesson learned was don't go to a grill for seafood even if it's half the menu.

Our evening out was spoilt by a family table in close proximity with a bunch of unruly noisy children. Management should have bought them into line, as the parents couldn’t give a toss. Why are kids allowed in here at night anyway?
The food was good, not great, and over priced. My chair back dug into my spine (lousy design). Our waiter was excellent but had too many tables to serve.

We had the wagyu and lamb rack which are remarkable. Service is excellence. Recommended for lunch or dinner. Restaurant is next to Depot at the entrance of Skycity Grand Hotel.

The Grill is an upmarket restaurant near the Casino, great for couples, business, or small groups. Excellent service, a great bar selection, and wonderfully cooked steak. A little on the pricey side but worthwhile. The desserts are scrumptious and the duck fat fries are delicious.

The steaks and meat dishes were excellent. Cooked to perfection and very tasty. The side dishes were equally good. Can't wait to go back on another visit. Beautiful restaurant , friendly waiters and food that is on another level. Well done.
