The poor service was overshadowed by the lousy, overpriced food. The place hadn't been updated in 20 years Christmas decorations still up... Really???
We went to the Blue Grotto on Saturday during the 2014 Providence Restaurant week. Had reservations for a lunch. Upon arrival, we have been made waiting to be sited for pretty long time. The restaurant was half empty and tables were available - looked like they didn’t have enough waiting staff. We decided to order from the restaurant week menu,... More
Four of us had dinner at The Blue Grotto last weekend. It was a Saturday evening and we were glad that we had made reservations, because it was packed, even at 6:00.

Went to Blue Grotto upon the purchasing of a Groupon. Menu service and atmosphere was perfect. Just don't understand why the bad reviews of others experiences! This place was outstanding including the valet service. Will definitely be returning in the near future with family. BEST TIRAMISSO EVER!

I'm not sure why bad reviews exist as the food and service were both wonderful. We had reservations for five o'clock, got... More
Bread was dry and old Calamari dry tasteless Two veal dinners one was so bad I think it may have been fit for the trash
As expected the Blue Grotto in the Federal Hill region of Providence RI delivered with great food and service when we went for an anniversary. We both had appetizers but my antipasto was much too large, which was okay since we had for dinner the next day. Good wine list even for those getting only a glass full. I had... More
I was fortunate to have a coupon to dine at Blue Grotto last Monday. Customarily, I don't frequent restaurants on Monday as one tends to get weekend food shall we say, "re imagined". I was however, on business trip with associates and on an expense account. The decor of the Blue Grotto is dark and warm. The dining room was... More
