We went to this restaurant for my daughter's birthday. Granted it wasn't the weekend, but I was surprised how empty it was. The food was fair, but the waiter was excellent. If the food matched the help, then I would be going back.

Another birthday for my husband, so another restuarant to enjoy, on September 30, 2013 at 7pm. When we arrived from our hotel, to our surprise, it was no one else present. It was as if I had arranged it that way, just exclusively for us only(like the rich/famous). Our male waiter was very helpful and kind with assisting in meal... More

Ate here on a Friday night with a group of friends. The waiters were very attentive and helpful. Our main waiter checked on us often and had good suggestions about the menu. The food was good -- not amazing, but fine. The odd thing was how empty the restaurant was on a Friday night. We parked right by the door... More

The grotto is known for steak. That's probably what we should have ordered. The clam pasta was overpriced and salty.

My family has been here twice for holiday brunch - Mother's Day & Easter. Both times, the service is very attentive and the food is good. Buffets are rarely amazing (unless you're at the Bellagio) but this is a solid buffet brunch with an omelette station, waffle station, prime rib station, seafood table, dessert table and standard brunch fare table...

My Husband and I were in Oak Brook for weekend get-a-way and looking forward to a nice evening out. We did not have reservations and arrived early but were told they only had a table in the bar area even though the place was practically empty. The drink I ordered tasted terrible and they did replace it with a glass... More

My family and I have been there four times in the past two years. The service is attentive. The food is outstanding. The grilled and fried calamari is well portioned, seasoned and delicious. The salad that has gorgonzola, pears, apples, and walnuts is delicious. The steaks are consistently cooked appropriately-my father likes medium while my husband likes medium rare and... More

Our waitress was Excellent, very nice, interacted with our two year old to help keep her entertained. Started out with the crab cake, delicious, had a spicy mayo sauce. We both ordered the special night a 25 oz porterhouse, with grilled vegetables. THEN it came to our table and our jaws dropped to the floor. This was no 25 oz,... More

Went here for lunch with a group from work. Shrimp cocktail was very good and a generous portion. Had a wedge salad that was very good but could have had more bacon on it....there wasn't any. Had Limone Chicken and it was very good. I couldn't finish all the food in spite of the fact that it was all delicious.... More
