Diner Reviews
  • "the food and service are really hard to beat - both are terrific"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Fresh, consistent, good food. We love this place! I wish they would bring back their bread pudding though for dessert in their menu. Also I wish they had some more vegetarian selections in their menu, not vegan, but vegetarian. However they never disappoint."

  • "Went here for dinner Friday night. Sushi was great and service was very attentive. Would definitely go back!"

  • "We had a nice time here and enjoyed the food. We were able to snag one of the sofas so we were real comfy. The waitress was almost overly attentive, but hey I will take that over being ignored any day. We ordered mostly sushi, which I would say was the best thing we had. We tried the California and Bagel rolls. The chicken lettuce wraps were just OK. We will definitely go back for the sushi - it was very fresh."

  • "My girlfriend and I went on a date there recently. We came too early before they were open and they still say us and served us immediately. Food was excellent and the servers were extremely friendly. We would say that dinner was prefect!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Visiting relatives and we were looking for sushi close by. We love tapas too, so we thought we'd give it a try. We loved sitting in the corner in a relaxed coffee table style booth. We ordered a couple of appetizers, sushi and several tapas dishes that we all shared. EVERYTHING we ordered was absolutely delicious. Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food... couldn't have asked for more!"

  • "The food was excellent. You can dine outside and love the sofa seats inside. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Excellent saki and cocktail selection Best tapas- mama mei's Goya pot and pistachio shrimp Yum!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We had a nice dinner seated on the couches but there was a party in the main dining room with 4-5 kids that were very loud and running all over the restaurant. It certainly distracted from our time together but once they left the atmosphere was perfect."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "this is my go to restaurant when I am craving asian"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Blue Grotto could be so easliy overlooked as it is tucked away in a shopping center in Sandy Springs. The ambiance is relaxing and the sushi and tapas were fantastic. If you can get the couch seating on the side that is a perfect place for a quiet evening of food and drinks."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Great food and outstanding service made for a great night to remember. I'd recommend it to anyone."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "My cousin and I regularly meet here after work, we can't get enough. Everything is great, the tapas, the sushi, the drinks - definitely a great find!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "This is by far the waste service I have ever experience, and it was from a Japanese Sushi bar of all places? We stood and waited for a little over 5 minutes before anyone tried to seat us, and that was after flagging down 2 of the works. It took them 15 minutes after seating us to come take our drink order. An addition 10 minutes before we got water on our table and then an addition 10 minutes before I got my drink and another 8 before my girlfriend got hers. Then it took 40 minutes before we got our food which was so bland it did not make up for the poor service at all. Need less to say, I won't be going back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Love this little neighborhood gem. Has great lounge seating for an intimate affair or large group gathering. Thursday nights they run specials on popular Tapas and Sushi. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "I use ScoutMob and Open Table to find lots of new places. This place was wonderful. We sat at a table but there was a neat and cozy seating area to the left of the entrance after you walked in. The cucumber mojito was amazing. Highly recommend! And we got 4 tapas dishes and 2 sushi rolls. We were beyond full! Sadly, they were out of green tea creme bruleé, but maybe next time!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Food, ambience, service, all were very good. The other good reviews are accurate."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "It had been a couple of years since we last dined at Blue Grotto, and we really liked the changes. Our family normally doesn't eat sushi, but we're converts now! We've found a new local favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Finding great sushi for a reasonable price isn't always easy to do. Blue Grotto is some of the BEST sushi I've had in Atlanta. I strongly suggest trying the crunchy spicy tuna roll! Best I've ever had!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "We had a really dinner and loved the Orange Sushi. Service was very attentive. Made for a very nice Saturday night dinner."
    Dined on 11/9/2013

    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "Eclectic menu, Asian inspired. Minimal sushi choices, but good tasting dishes, nice presentation. Very friendly and attentive staff, quick service, prompt response. Quiet even on a Friday night."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "My friend and I enjoyed our dining experience. I like the decor. What impressed me most was the presentation. We had a salad and small plates. They were very inviting to look at and also delicious. I would definitely return."
    Dined on 8/4/2013
  • "A friend had recommended this restaurant for its tapas.... and we were not disappointed. We ordered 4 different dishes and found them to be tasty and quite generous. Sharing the 4 was definitely sufficient for the two of us. We will go back."
    Dined on 7/19/2013
  • "We were looking for a place outside of Downtown Atlanta and stumbled upon this place. Great food and quiet atmosphere. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "Food was good, service lacked. Didn't get cocktails until after our salads were served and stressed we "don't want them for dessert" and almost cancelled cocktail order. side order of fried rice was not available until after we ate the sushi. we cancelled the fried rice. Specialty rolls were GREAT! basic California roll tasted like grocery store roll, bad. We would only return if there was another Scout Mob or coupon to be used, otherwise, there are other sushi places with much better service. The service timing was Awful..."
    Dined on 7/3/2013
  • "Just wasn't what we were looking for. Would be great if you live a mile away and could pop in when a craving hit. I won't drive 40 mins for it again."
    Dined on 1/24/2013
  • "Each item of food we tried was very tasty. Good sushi and great tapas (most with an Asian flair). Wine list could be a bit larger. Loved the cushion seating areas. Plan on going back with friends for a fun night of food and conversation."
    Dined on 1/18/2013
  • "The food did not impress. There are many tapas restaurants in Atlanta that have better food. Likewise, I have had much better sushi. The hummus was nearly flavorless, The various sushi rolls were tolerable, but no better. The avocado roll was the best item I had."
    Dined on 1/15/2013
  • "We were very pleased with our visit. We ordered selections from both menus. So many items looked interesting, we ordered a bit too much. Wine selection were sufficient for both the red and white wine drinker. Will return."
    Dined on 1/5/2013
  • "Great sushi restaurant. I have taken the kids there a few times and they loved it. Its one of the best sushi restaurants in Atlanta. I have to say you can find cheaper prices if you are trying to feed a large group or family, but if you're looking for taste you cant beat it. Its about 8 to 12 dollars a roll. I have already planned for our next trip."
    Dined on 12/26/2012
  • "Our favorite restaurant. Fresh, flavorful food, consistent and tasty, good service."
    Dined on 12/1/2012
  • "Great food and a great experience. Its great for groups, however if youre trying to find a nice quiet plays for a date its a hit or miss. I have gone back 3 time in 5 days and there was a large crowd one night. Other thank that it was great and I will go back next week."

  • "This has become one of our favorite places. The sushi is fresh and delicious and the tapas are interesting, varied and yummy. One of us is a sushi person and the other is not, so a perfect restaurant for us. The staff is friendly and prfessional, the atmosphere inviting and comfortable and the prices are better than reasonable. I find that we're going there more and more often."
