The food is excellent and the service is friendly. My husband and I discovered this restaurant a few months back and it's now our number one choice in the neighborhood. Try it.

Not too long ago I brought a cackle of my non-Pinay girlfriends for their first taste of Filipino food. As a result of having 8 people in our party, we ordered large at excellent NYC eat prices. This is one of the few places I would recommend to both Pinay and non-Pinay Filipino food seekers. The service was attentively great. The food was as authentic as a non-homemade Filipino meal could be. My non-Filipino friends walked away satisfied with a comfort zone to want to come back for more. My Pinay friend and I were pleased to show our non-Pinay friends that we could provide them with the Pilipino hospitality that we were both raised on and satisfied that we made the most correct choice of having come to a Filipino restaurant without worries that something could go awry. I only wish the place had been much larger. The place was overflowing of Pilipino customers. Now it should try to make room for the many non-Pinays/Pinoys that will be stopping by.

everything here is very tasty! quality is very good, and the service is wonderful! my only complaint is that it is a bit pricey. still worth it though.

I recently had lunch there. Mango juice was in a can. Couldn't they pour it on a glass to make it more presentable? Dumpling soup was above average and had a strong celery flavor, which made it a non-Filipino soup. Bipstik or beef/onions stew was bad. It looked like bipstik but didn't taste or smell line one. I would still go back and try the others, again, with a critical sense of taste and smell. Just avoid their bipstik.

The people at Grill 21 are some of the nicest people i've ever talked to...And yes, the food is also good, especially the BBQ stuff (which is very appealing to non-Filipinos)

Grill 21 is a great place to take your non-filipino friends to for genuine Philippine cuisine presented in a non-intimidating fashion. Cendrillon is way overpriced and the food isn't very flavorful. Kuma Inn is good but it's more Thai, Pan-Asian than it is Filipino. I wouldn't dare bring my non-filipino friends to Elvie's just because the food's turo-turo presentation might scare them away. Grill 21's pork bbq, sisig and laing is highly recommended - tasted genuinely Filipino and it was presented well. The atmosphere is clean, bright and very inviting. Dessert could be improved however - we had the turon and it was very ordinary - nothing spectacular. Overall very good value - I will definitely bring more of my American friends here in the future.
