Beck’s prime card is spectacular. Microsoft has a website where you can look up what restaurants accept it and what their discounts are. I came across a small steakhouse in Renton, WA called Melrose Grill. Every single review on Yelp was a 4 or 5 star review and their Prime Card discount was a buy one entree get a complimentary entree. I was SO EXCITED! Melrose Grill opens at 5 pm and there is always a group of people lined up outside and waiting for the doors to open. It was recommended to make a reservation so we could show up and be seated right away!
Our server, Emelia, was very knowledgable about the menu, our drinks, any recommendations, and all dessert options. She was prompt, attentive, and enthusiastic. Very refreshing! The ambience was quiet and quaint.
What did I have to drink, you ask? Stupid question.
Each dish came with a salad and 2 sides. Beck ordered the New York Strip Steak with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, and a Caesar salad. I ordered the Prime Top Sirloin with Parmesan crusted potatoes, roasted vegetables, and the house salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
We couldn’t believe the deliciousness of everything in front of us. It was TERRIFIC! The caesar salad was exceptional and my vinaigrette was sweet and tangy. Our medium steaks were cooked perfectly. The garlic mashed potatoes were perfect and the paremasan coating on mine was salty and crunchy. Veggies were tasty and flavorful. We didn’t have any complaints.
Melrose Grill: 10/10
