The atmosphere is clean, a bit dark, but interesting. The food was good, appetizers better than main courses, however, not spectacular. The service was again good but not amazing.

Our group ate here on a business trip and we were very impressed with the food and the service. We ate outside and we loved the atmosphere the place had. If we make it back to Allentown we are going to eat here again for sure!

I love the food at 3501. We have been going there for years. We are never disappointed in the food. But the service is slow.

Very nice menu. My husband and I shared the twin lobster tails and the Jumbo lump crab cake. Very good.. The appetizer , crab and mango spring rolls did not have that much taste.

This is our go to restaurant in Allentown. We probably visit twice a month and always enjoy our meal. Both lunch and dinner are excellent. Service is attentive and helpful. They have a new section that is more casual and quite lively.

Service was excellent. Upscale atmosphere would appeal to a date or a business dinner. My husband and I had the seared tuna and the duck. Amazing! We will dine here again!

I have been here several times, always for dinner. This week a business lunch. Excellent lump crabmeat sandwich and service. And at a round central table 6 for lunch we had a meaningful and private luncheon. Will recommend to my colleagues

Grille 3501 is one of my husbands and my favorite restaurants in the Lehigh Valley. The menu is varied, there are always good specials and the food never disappoints us.
