Is this much grain still salvagable?

Hi all,

I was sent here by a more DI savvy friend who I presented my problem to. I took this photo with my new cell phone, and when I uploaded the picture to my computer, I noticed it was terribly grainy. Can anyone help with this one?

I ran the image quickly through two different noise supression programs using preset filters and no tweaking. Both have a free version that you can download. This just gives you a quick idea of what can be done.

Thanks for the work thus far! I guess I should have noted I'll be working in OSX with PS CS. Any other software I should look into?
