I live in Rhode Island and the last time I came to visit, my cousin recommended that we have breakfast there. The food was amazing and the chef, Aris, came out to make sure everything was ok with us, especially knowing that I was from out of town. We also met the owner and he was very nice. We are both filipinos and appreciate good food!!! I will be back in a few weeks and look forward to another good visit.

As you pass it on the street you can see from the large front windows, that grill 21 has a bit of flavor inside. With hospitable waitresses, good food, and a calm/cool environment. Grill 21 allows me to feel like i'm back in the mother land again. For all who love filipino's and filipino food, Grill 21 is on the top of my list. Great filipino food, not so steep prices, Grill 21 is the place to be.

We found this place completely by accident and it was the best we could have come across. The food was great and very authentic Filipino cuisine. The staff were very friendly and the owner has come up with a winner with this hidden gem. Salamat po.

We ordered the beefsteak because thats my favorite Filipino dish and i was hoping it would be tasty like Krystals (RIP). But it lacked that lemony flavor and the meat was just bad. Didn't taste like Mang Totoy's beefsteak at all. Great service though. Apart from the watery consistency, Kare Kare was Ok Ok.

I did not expect Filipino food to be very tasty and quite similar to Vietnamese food. The "spring rolls" were filled with pork and yummy veggies. The dipping sauce was similar to the thai sweet and spicy sauce. The tilapia with eggs and tomatoes was perfect. Toasted garlic on white rice added a nice touch. The cured pork was my favorite. The haro haro dessert was excellent to finish off the meal. The owner and chef were very personable and made sure my friends and I enjoyed our meals. I even tried San Miguel beer. Although we had to request for our waters to be refilled a few times, service was friendly and filled with smiles. I am definitely returning with an empty stomach next time.

Just wanted to give some props to my favorite Pinoy spot in NYC. I'm from San Fran and out in Nor Cal I have lots og Filipino friends so I'm always eating good filipino food. Now that I live in NYC I've been going through withdrawls. Ive been to several other filipino spots in NY and so far this one is the best. Its the closest to back in the bay. So close that I brought my pinoy judge along with me and he gave it 2 pinots up! I'll be topsilongin it up for weeks to come and when my filipino crews comes out to NYC in May, i'll be bringing them all here to get Supa Dupa Hyphy with some lumpia!

Almost as good as what my grandmother makes at home (being from an island somehwhat near the phillipines we have similar dishes).. grill 21 has amazing food at amazing prices, very authnetic as well... great bistek, great wings, great chicken skewers. This is area is tough for food too, some places are great some are poor, and the prices usually corallate. Grill 21 is healthy, tasty, fuses great culinary cultures and is cheap. So explore it.
