We ordered two appetizers, the steak was totally overcooked and no taste. The muscles were overcooked as well. The sushi was good and fresh.

Unfortunately we both got a stomach upset. The place was so dead and I think the food was not fresh that 's why we both got sick. Sorry but We won't go back .

Service was exceptional, and food options are unique and fun. The presentation of food could be better, and we felt we paid quite a bit for what we got. We loved the complimentary fondue chocolate dessert. That dessert would be perfect for a date night. We sat in nice lounge seating, which felt cool and intimate.

Always a great experience and could tell its gaining in popularity. More than traditional on a Tuesday night and staff seemed to be pretty busy. Food still came out quick and staff got everything correct and kept waters full along with our other drinks. Love keeping this place as a go-to whenever a craving comes along.

Sushi was not fresh...had a fishy smell. The tapas were just ok. Likewise, food came out very slow. We would not go back.

I've been to Blue Grotto a few times, had okay experience and okay food. It's located very close to my home and while I've been on the fence about the value, convenience has won out. Until now. Friday evening 7:45pm arrival, dining room was half-full when we were seated. 25 minutes later when soup and salad arrived there was one of each rather than two of each. Apparently server did not fully understand English. 65 minutes after we arrived part of our sushi order was placed on the table and another 5-10 minutes for the final roll. The fish is fine, but the rolls were tasteless and a little sloppy looking. I am off the fence and will drive on for a better experience next time.

Our last 2 visits the service has not been very good at all and we are regular group of ladies that visits the place frequently. We love the place and would love to continue to receive great customer service like always before!! Very slow service when the restaurant isn't even full and lack of interest and getting orders wrong or forgetting part of the order is something that is happening lately!? Hope this is nothing that continues.....

Definitely a place to try just once. Food was good, nothing super special and staff was very nice but seemed short staffed. I was glad to have tried it but do not think I'd go back.

The place is TOOO noisy, but the food was good. It might be a better place to do lunch. It was hard to have a normal conversation.

A small out of the way restaurant that's hard to find. It is worth finding. The prices and portion size are good. I was there late and there was only one waitress but she was nice and doing a good job. Food was very tasty and you have a lot of choices.

Took my wife here for our anniversary and must say that it wasn't what I expected from the outside. However as we entered my opinion immediately changed. Blue Grotto is a tiny little sapphire waiting to be discovered. The decor is modern and the ambience welcoming. The menu is full of enticing small plates and the drink list is good. Overall we enjoyed and would definitely frequent this hideaway if we weren't 25 miles away.

On Halloween night and very last minute, a search on Open Table delivered this conveniently located, sushi option. The food was very good a reasonably priced. Drink options were plentiful. Love the casual group seating on sofa like benches in cozy nooks with throw pillows. Attentive service too. We'll be back with friends!
