This restaurant used to be our favorite restaurant. The success brought higher prices and new ways of displaying the vegetables, the meats.We hope that everything is for better service. Please don't forget about bathrooms. Your choice of dark tiles shows all the residues from the water. Invest in a water system which doesn't leave so much mess behind. The sinks... More

We used to love this place but after so many changes its hard to come back. The service was mediocre and the food was average for the price.

We had never been to the Flat Top Grill so we didn't know what to expect. It is an interesting concept - you decide what meat you want and add your choice of accompaniments from a buffet of vegies, sauces, etc. The downside was the service. The staff seemed confused about who was supposed to take care of our table.... More

choose your meat, vegetable, sauces. Add some extras and bam! Your food made to order. Staff is great at explaining how its done. So satisfying to have JUST what you want.

What a cool experience to get to choose everything that goes into your dish and have it custom made! This is great idea, especially for picky eaters. :) Flat Top is a must stop every time we're in the area!!

We revisited this restaurant last night while we were in town. They have changed some things since our last visit. One of the things that they changed was not making the proteins available. I can kind of understand the reasoning behind that ( keeping them in a refrigerated environment & waste down), but when you mark the proteins you want... More

My husband and I tried Flat Top last Thursday and were not happy. First of all, when we were seated our table was very dirty. I asked the waiter if he could wash it off for us and he was very "put out." He did, but just swiped his rag across it -- not good. The food there is delicious,... More

I have been to flat top a couple of times. Was not thrilled and this last time, it was amazing because of Josh. He personable and endearing. He gave the hint of how to pile your food. One scoop of sauce then veggies then rice or noodles. Then two more scoops of sauce. He was attentive and knew when to... More

Very bad service! We waited for more than 10 min and nobody came to serve. The people who came after us got served first. We went to ask the front desk and they simply told us they were busy. So rude! Would never go back. We would give zero to this restaurant if we could.
