Grotto Oak Brook
A happy Mother's Day with HelenI took my mom to Grotto for Mother's Day buffet(her choice). She loved it. When I saw Helen would be taking care of us, I knew it was going to be a wonderful experience. She is by far the best server at Grotto! We were offered glasses of champagne when we sat down and then invited to partake in the buffet. The choices included: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, eggs benedict, omelets & waffles made to order, ham, lamb, roast beef, chicken vesuvio & limone, salmon, and a dessert table to die for. My only complaint was I didn't have enough room to try everything. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad lunch this time terrificHad lunch this time terrific steak sandwich, tender and flavorful. I had the cheese ravioli and the portion was perfect for lunch and delicious. Atmosphere is very nice for a quiet lunch, we came later around 2pm so not very busy. They have a great outdoor patio.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Dinner with Friends.We had a relaxing dinner with friends...delicious marinara sauce just like my grandmother's. Fish specials are always wonderful. This is a gem of a restaurant for Italian food. Mangia!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family dinnerWe went to Grotto for the first time. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. They have a kids menu but my daughter wanted a steak from the regular menu. When I spilled a glass of water, they were right there to immediately clean it up. We would definitely go there again. Oh, the food was excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSATURDAY NIGHT DATEWE HAVE DINED AT GROTTO OAKBROOK SEVERAL TIMES AND WE ARE NEVER DISAPPOINTED. WE BROUGT SOME
FRIENDS WHO WERE IN FROM WISCONSIN AND THEY LOVED IT! DRINKS, FOOD AND SPUMONI WERE TERRIFIC.
FIRST WE WERE SEATED RIGHT BY THE KITCHEN DOOR; WE POLITELY ASKED TO BE MOVED TO A BOOTH ALONG THE
WALL WHICH WAS MUCH NICER FOR CONVERSING. (HOWEVER, MY HUBBY HAS A BAD BACK, IT 'WOULD BE NICE IF THE SEATS IN THAT PARTICUAR BOOTH COULD BE MADE "FIRMER". AFTER A COUPLE HOURS OF SITTING ON THAT "SOFT" SEAT WE HAD SORE BACKS. OTHERWISE THE ENTIRE DINING EXPERIENCE WAS AMAZING.
OUR WAITRESS AND BUS "MAN" WERE SO NICE, ACCOMMODATING AND ATTENTIVE. KUDOS TO ALL STAFF FOR A WONDERFUL JOB THEY ALL DID TO MAKE OUR DINNERS VERY DELICIOUS AND PLEASANT WAIT STAFF.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpricedWe do dining for birthday rather than gifts in our family unless it is a "big" birthday. So, my son's fiance selected Grotto for Brunch for her birthday. The restaurant is nicely spaced and the decor is neutral. The food was set up in the bar area so you were away from tables of people while selecting your food. There was a nice variety of food, both breakfast and lunch items, along with the omelete station, egg station and carving stations. However, in my opinion, the desserts were seriously lacking. Unless you were a chocoholic you had one selection and that was cheesecake. They had a fresh fruit platter at the dessert table but that was completely picked over. They were replacing everything with fresh items except that.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but a little onGood food but a little on the expensive side for the size of the portion. Great wait staff!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks were cooked to perfection.Steaks were cooked to perfection.

One guest's 21st birthday had been earlier in the week. The staff in both the bar and dining room couldn't have been more accommodating, and helped us celebrate in real style. The food was excellent; we had a variety of entrees and all were done well and presented beautifully. Great job, Grotto!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI truly enjoyed my dinnerI truly enjoyed my dinner at Grotto's. It was my boyfriend Eddy's
