He wants it grilled - Lo/la quiere asado/a; Lo/la quiere a la parrilla.
Nota que la palabra es parrilla con rr. En mi experiencia, asado es más común.

What would you like to drink? - ¿Qué va a tomar? / ¿Qué gusta tomar? / ¿Qué va a querer de tomar? / ¿Y de tomar? / ¿Qué le gustaría tomar?
Tienes muchas opciones ahí.

¿Es algo que quieres? - Is this something you want?
¿Es algo que quisieras? - Is this something you would like?

La diferencia entre estas dos locuciones no es mucha, al igual que el inglés. En cuanto al uso del subjuntivo, en este caso no se usa porque ya tienes algún objeto. El objeto ya es algo concreto, sólo el hecho de si la persona lo quiere o no está en juego.
