I've tried both Chicken Adobo and Halo-Halo today. Both are better in feel and taste than the they serve in the other two restaurant in eastside Manhattan. A few dollars more that's worth the difference. I'll be back.

Grill 21 is the only Fil-American resaurant in Manhattan that's worth patronizing. The cuisine is delicious, service is fast, and the stsff, courteous. The owner, is very accomodating and he intermingles with customers for good PR. That is how you win customers. I have informed friends to check out this winderful restaurant.

first of all i have no complaints with the food infact, this is one of my favorite filipino restaurants in the city! the husband of the owner however seems to end up sitting at our talbe chatting up a storm, every single time my wife and i visit, i think he is most annoying man in the world... while i was digging into my lechon kawali (which is extremely delicious) this man would interrupt us and this occured more than once (thrice.) he constantly reminds us that he owns the place and that he is a top real estate broker in NYC! once is fine but three times? i just want to EAT!

i think the chef has to go back to phil. or go back to school to learn the spirit of authentic philippine cuisine. i spend $20 for nothing. beer is $6, and adobo taste like water! pls...give me a break!

Well the first year was great and food is delicious but we went there to eat last week and it was a disaster! kare kare is hard,tapa was greasy,pancit is still raw and dry and the lady owner was forcing us to order and rushing us to leave the place. i feel sorry for them i hope they can bring back the good old days.

Let's be frank: It's great to find a Filipino restaurant in Manhattan that is authentic, reasonably priced, and has a nice atmosphere. Now I don't have to trek out to Queens. The prices are substantially more than the places over there, but this is Manhattan after all. However, I must add that the husband of the couple that owns this place is really quite annoying... The rest of the staff were great, however!

Forget Restaurant Week! Grill 21 offers to-die-for Filipino food at reasonable prices every day of the week. This is our favorite hangout whenever we feel like having a food fest. Imagine having sisig, crispy pata, lechon kawali, sinigang na baboy, daing na bangus, laing and lumpiang sariwa all in one meal. My friends and I frequent Grill 21 all the time. Downed with San Miguel, this place really brings you back to the good old days back in Manila. A must try for New Yorkers who are craving for some authentic Filipino food in the city. Although the place is small (it can only accommodate around 25 people inside), they serve efficiently. During warmer days, they set up tables outside too. Total cost for this meal was only around $100. Not bad for a restaurant in the East Village!
