With plenty of good reviews at hand, we dined at the Grotto while staying at the San Luis Resport. Delightful ambiance at sunset, very good attention from our servers, and no pressure to hurry the experience.

We were welcomed by great staff that made us feel special.. The waiter could not be any better in explaining the different type of dishes that they serve. Environment was very nice & relaxing. I'll suggest this place any time for a great food..

Really nice place with good food and excellent service. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because my husband felt the selection of Italian red wine was lacking.
