This place is really tucked away! So well in fact that as I was taking my friend there as a surprise, new restaurant in the area for her birthday. We found ourselves on Sunday at about 5:12pm in the otherside of the parking lot saying, I guess they are not open. Once we called and were told the other entrance to enter through, we noticed an interesting, quiet little restaurant waiting to be enjoyed. The atmosphere was very pleasant and quiet, but enough noise to make you feel your conversation was not everyone elses. We started with Martinis and Fried Calamari. The drinks by far were definitely on point, maybe even a little too strong, LOLL! However the Calamari was nicely cooked but I felt lacked the flavor that is so hard to give with perfectly cooked Calamari. The Sirloin Steak topped with Blue Cheese, Onions and Mushrooms was very tasty. Slightly over cooked for a mid-well but I can look past that for this dish. The steamed vegetables were not anything to write home about that accompanied the entree. Now my friend on the other hand, had a stuffed salmon which tasted as good as it looked! This originally came with a Wasabi sauce pipped over it, however she did not care for Wasabi. Once they quickly prepared a new one without the sauce topping it, she was more than happy with the selection. To end the evening on an even sweeter note, the Strawberry Cheesecake cut smoother than butter and had me almost stuff the rest of it right in my mouth from off the plate!!! With a ending bill of $121.84 for 4 Martinis, 2 Entrees, 2 Desserts and 2 Appetizers I would definitely keep this place in my to go to list. Out 5 diamonds I give it 3!!!

Upon initial review of this place I figured it was a good choice. The prices weren't too high to enjoy without breaking your wallet, nor too low to be questionable. Well, that all changed once we walked in and it became painfully more obvious once we were seated. The decor was boring and cheap. We actually thought of leaving but we went against our gut instinct and have the place a shot. What a mistake! The food was mediocre at best. My steak was dry and the onion mashed potatoes were overly buttered making them one of the worst mashed potatoes I've ever had. My girlfriend's steak was equally dry but she still enjoyed it, even though she didn't truly. Overall, we weren't happy with our meal and will not be going again, nor would I recommend to anyone.

After reading the reviews, I was skeptical about having a Saturday night dinner here. It was suggested by the husband of the couple that we met. We had reserved our time on line which was easy. When we arrived we were seated promptly. Alan our waiter, to keep it short, was there at all the right times. He didn't hang around us and talk, or forget us when needed. The food was hot, presented well, and very good. The restaurant was not crowded so we had time to talk with our friends and didn't feel like we had to finish and leave for another seating. Was I happy with Greystones - YES. Would I go again -YES.

Although billed as a house specialty, the pecan crusted tilapia was more like battered fish from Mrs. Paul's. No pecans in sight and it was burned. Service was friendly and efficient - however, our server either didn't share our displeasure with the kitchen or management didn't care as no one visited our table to see if something could be done to improve the meal. For the price, a HUGE disappointment! We will not go back.

Over lit, over priced and over hyped. Supposed to be romantic, not at all. Service was terrible, when I complained our waiter apologized by saying, "sorry, that sucks". If you like asparagus get the potatoes! Should have gone to outback

Out of 4 steaks, two of them were burnt. They were very good about getting us more steaks but the next 2 steaks were practically raw. Again, they were quick to cook them a bit longer and finally they were good. Only thing, we were eating when the other two guests finished. They were training a new cook. I was impressed on how apologetic they were and wanted to make things right.

I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am in the new management and service at Geystone Grill. I am a long time customer of the restaurant and I have been repeatedly disappointed since the new management has taken over and this will be my last visit. Greystone had setup a deal through Groupon to sell coupons for a prepaid prefix meal for two. There were "no restriction" printed right on the coupon.This seemed like a great deal because it covered two drinks, an appetizer, two entrees and dessert. I made reservations and when my spouse and I had arrived for dinner, we were told that they would not accept the coupon that day because it was Valentines day. The manager explained that they "forgot" to print it on the coupon. What a scam! I even spoke with Michael Zhen, the General Manager and he was not willing to budge, so we left and went to Houlihans in Columbia. Houlihans took great care of us with almost no notice. We should have gone there in the first place. The food from previous visits to Greystone was 50/50. I have gotten the wrong meal prepared at Greystone and I have gotten burned steak when I order it medium. They have always corrected the problem with the ill prepared food but everyone else was finished eating and ready to go when my food arrives. Be wary of the photo pictured above. The photo is of one wall in a small private room. The place is nothing like the photo. It is in the lower level of an office building and needs some serious updating. Before the original restaurant went belly up, the food and service were good. Michael Zhen should be careful, or he will drive away the rest of the old loyal customers.

My wife and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversay at Greystone Grill and it was just as good as our 1st anniversary there and our 1st real date that we had there. Don't think that our sentimental attachment to the Greystone influences our rating. We read the reviewsand thought for a moment about trying another place, but we went ahead for Greystone, thinking that if it were subpar, we would go elsewhere next time. I made a reservation and asked for a quiet/romantic table in the back and explained that it was our anniversary and our history with the Greystone. When we arrived and asked for our reservation, the hostess took us to the left side, or front of the establishment. I knew that she had not looked at our request, and knew that I should have mentioned it when we arrived. Before she could seat us, I asked if we could have another table and explained my reservation request. The hostess very nicely acknowledged my request and asked us if we would care to select any of the empty tables. We went to the back, and found that our "1st date" table was open. Granted, it was a week night, and not very crowded at all. Our server was Logan, and he was fabulous. We ordered the Sangria, and Logan came back to let us know that they had run out of Sangria, but that they were making up some more. Sangria purists will tell you that Sangria has to soak for a couple of hours to be at its best, but ours was fine. Very tasty. We ordered the cheese and fruit appetizer to start. Fantastic. I am a huge fan of Blue Cheese, and this was to die for. The other cheeses, while not as familiar to me, were equally fine. A most pleasant beginning to our meal. My wife ordered the Filet Migon Nepolean and I the New York Strip. Having read about the "heavy handedness" of the grill staff, I was extra careful with how I ordered. Logan was very understanding and accommodating in helping us select the proper choice for us. We each had the Greystone salad as a side, and they were delightful. I should mention that the pacing of the meal was spot on. Both of our meals came out together, and while I was savoring my steak, I noticed that steam was actually showing up on the edge of my knife as it sat across my plate with the blade across the steak. I mean that steak literally came off the grill, went onto the plate and came straight to the table. It was fantastic. We thought there was no room for dessert, but we went with the bread pudding to share. Bread pudding sounds really boring doesn't it? It was far from boring. We both agreed that it had to be the best either of us has ever had. Not the least bit dry. Very moist, but not to the point of being soupy. Sweet, but not sickening sweet. Seemed to have a hint of citrus flavoring which made it a party in your mouth. Will have to get that again in the future. Bread Pudding would not normally be my "go-to", but I was not the least bit disappointed and my wife agreed. All in all, we were once again thrilled with the Greystone Grill. I am certainly glad that I did not let a few bad reviews sway me away from what turned out to be a fantastic dining experience (AGAIN).
