Great steak! the sides are great and simple and exactly what you look for when you want a comforting meal! easy to come with kids and they are very flexible regarding meal changes. The only down side was that they were a bit pushy with...the times- trying to clean our tables and finish off before we had finished eatingMore

Last night was date night for my boyfriend and I. We decided to go to The Grillhouse in Rosebank for the first time (we had been to the one in Sandton before). The manager, Nelson, was very friendly and welcoming. We got the booth we...had booked and it was quiet and romantic. Our waiter, Nkosinathi, was very helpful and attentive the entire evening. He made sure we had everything we needed. I ordered the rib-eye with classic cafe de Paris and boyfriend ordered their prime 1855 black Angus beef with the cafe de Paris. Both of our steaks were cooked medium and to perfection. We ordered dessert for once. I got the ice cream with hot chocolate sauce and it was the best chocolate sauce I have ever had (not even I could make such an amazing sauce 😂). My boyfriend had the Lindt chocolate mousse which was 'chocolatey' and airy. All in all it was a very exceptional experience, a perfect place for date night. A 10/10 and a definite recommendation!More

It is a lovely restaurant to go to on a summers evening, well positioned and by all accounts their food is delicious. I went under sufferance because I am vegan where possible or at worst vegetarian and they are a steak house. However I must...say even though I ate mostly side dishes they were all excellent. Pap if you are south african you will know what this is, best European comparison is probably polenta. Delicious side salad and all kinds of other delicious bits. I certainly did not go hungry. If you are a carnivore you will be in heaven and if not the management will go to great lengths to satisfy you.More

This fancy restaurant has an amazing service and great food. We ordered two steaks with sides and a baverage and paid 430 rands for both. The steaks were deliciously prepared and even the bread we ate before our meal was delicious.

Dined here twice during a recent business trip. Great place to eat, either as a single diner or part of a group. On my second visit, was greeted with "same table as last time sir" only been here once before! Steaks range from small to...very large up to 1KG. Opted for a 450g T-Bone on the first occasion with creamed spinach, honestly with the bread they offer, no potatoes needed. Knife glided through it like the proverbial. Staff very welcoming and take a pride in what they serve both to eat and the local drinks. Definitely on the list for next visit.More

So I said its time to indulge. Went to have a best steak I can dog my teeth into and I did. The angus ribeye was amazingly juicy and with a wonderful texture in your mouth. Dont make the mistake of hifing the real meaty...taste with this or that sauce. I had it without any. Loved it and you must try sometime. Woth a good red to with it, man is complete. The waiter was very attentive amd the manger accommodating to my comments added here. He promised to consider the suggestion. The only issue I had was the fork! The own brand steak knife was the works but the fork that completed the experience failed and below par. It was like being at the grill house with your right hand while your left was still at the ocean basket. See the photo. With the most expensive angus steak in the restaurant, the fork needed to rise up and match the knife for the whole experience to come full circle. And that's why I gave a four out of five. Hats off to the management. Will go again and if you have a chance do that too.More

We visited the restaurant twice in two nights during our stay in Johannesburg. Great atmosphere and excellent knowledgeable staff. The food was delicious. Over two nights we tried the different steaks which were incredible. We loved this restaurant and would highly recommend it.

Not living up to its ranking First, there was no record of our dinner reservation even though made and confirmed by Nelson that morning. The receptionist managed the snafu and recovered well. Second, service was slow and then main courses arrived before the appetizers were...finished. Third, cutlery was missing and took a while to arrive. Fourth, English mustard was only delivered after the third request. Fifth, my sirloin was grizzly but well cooked - so food quality (not prep) was questionable. The fried onion and creamed spinach were delicious - but we came for the steak! This place will have to do much more to get more than 2 stars from me.More
