Great dinner and a fun time at La Grotta. It's always the best food sand service. Great wine list and desserts are fabulous.

We have eaten at La Grotta for many years. We've never had the bad experiences described in some of the reviews. Contrary to some who complained about noise, we find it always easy to converse even when close to other diners. The wait staff (some who have been there for decades) are competent, friendly, helpful and often humorous. They always... More

My fellow management rave about this restaurant but I think it is a bit over-rated. the food is very pricey but not great, with portion sizes that do not fit the price. It was also a little loud which we were trying to avoid since we had business associates with us.

Gosh, the other La Grotta located at the Ravinia closed and this location isn't doing so well either. It suffers from the same lack of consciousness as the closed one that my wife loved. I made the reservation emphasizing that it was for her Birthday. When we arrived I saw they had that clearly marked on their computer so I... More

La Grotta is one of those places with a great reputation for fine dining in Atlanta. My parents had been there with friends several times before and wanted to go back for their 61st anniversary. I had never been before and had built up my expectations based on all that they had shared with us. I had not read any... More

Dined with friends for a late dinner. It has been many years since we visited La Grotta. Nothing has changed. Good food, but poor atmosphere. The restaurant is in the basement of a building and you literally think you are in a dining hall for a condo building. The tables are all packed real close together, the ceiling is really... More

Dined with my wife on 12/17. I ordered the appetizer special,rissotto with mushrooms. Then I ordered the salmon, medium(cooked thru and thru.) Out came a salad followed by a piece of grouper. I called over the manager who spoke to the waiter who explained that I had asked for "fish". He then told me that the waiter had just had... More

Great food. Great service. Terrible and very due host/maître d'. Due to extremely heavy traffic, every diner was late for their reservation. Instead of expressing concern and being happy that everyone arrive safely, he chastised everyone for being late. "you have impacted our reservations and are putting all of our reservations behind". Everyone, not just our group of 10, were... More

We have visited this restaurant several times when attending a conference in Atlanta each December. The food is fabulous and the service is superb. The entire staff makes you feel at home and a part of the family. We had a large group and had several different things on the menu and everyone raved about what they ate. This one... More

Beautiful atmosphere, very elegant. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Barolo wine was outstanding. Definitely recommend trying the Mussels. Pasta with white truffles was delicious. We will definitely be back again.
