This was my wife and I favorite restaurant. The past two visits have been less than. The flavor and seasoning has gone from unique to mass produced. Food is not as flavorful. The sauces I am sure are mas produced instead of made to order as in years past. OK food. But it will not be my first choice. I... More

Went out to a late lunch (1:00) with my brothers and sisters. We didn't get there until 1pm and were surprised that there was no one there. Restaurant looked dead! But we heard it was a good restaurant so we ordered our lunch specials. It took a long time for our food to come out even though we were the... More

Sunday after church we had a completely enjoyable meal at the Grotto. From being welcomed by staff and manager to quite a bit of personal attention to a superb meal, all was perfect. If you are a discerning purveyor of exquisite service and attractively prepared food you will want to take extra effort to include this as a must stop... More

First, we were disappointed that Happy Hour only applied at the bar. No drink deals apply if you're seated in the restaurant. To top it off, our food was only mediocre and the service was poor. Been at The Grotto several times before and must say it has gone downhill.

Great location and a great large private room (a wine cellar). The service was exceptionally good. The food was a little bit below expectation: grilled salmon was average and spinach looked and tasted like a canned one. The room temperature was uncomfortable too low for many of us. The restaurant has a potential to improve in food selection and quality.... More

Grotto's used to be an excellent restaurant. Not anymore! This place has continued to go downhill since it was purchased by a large corporation that also owns Landry's, etc. The salmon was tasteless, tank-raised, pale-pink variety and was over-cooked. The spinach was sludge-like and tasted like it came out of a can. The shrimp appetizer which was supposed to be... More

Lots of variety - could use a couple more steak options. They had an antipasti bar option. Service was very good and professional, nice venue and my food was excellent. I had a chicken with mushroom sauce and Caesar salad and I think it was an upscale menu with fair prices and very good food.

Our table was a little cramped but the food was great... Portions a little on the small side but I would go back for sure! Ravioli looked good too!

I have been here a few times but my wife never has so I brought her to give it a try, we both enjoyed it very much. Our server Matt was excellent! He was super friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We had the calamari, snapper and sea bass all of which were great. We sampled several drinks that weren't on the... More
