                                                              It was very loud. Thought it was more in a cave but that is not the feel I got. Steak was ordered medium and it can out more like rare and had to send it back. Came back medium rare.

                                                              Had a very nice meal. Red Sangria was one of the best we've had (and we work hard at sampling them!). Brussel sprouts were also very good. Pork chip was a bit dry. Salmon was good but nothing superbly unique. Waitress, Sarah, was excellent -- both friendly and attentive. Costs were moderate. For a town of less than 2500, this was better than expected.

                                                              Ordered filet mignon w/bearnaise with crab meat. Sauce overwhelmed the steak flavor, would recommend order without the sauce. Steak flavor good, a little under-cooked from medium request. Potatoes with horseradish yogurt were delicious. Salmon was medium rare, smoked shrimp with ciabatta was tasty. Issue with staff cleaning, ie sweeping steps while we were still eating. Our reservation was for 9pm, the only available time. I feel we should be given ample time to complete our meal before staff began cleaning up for the evening. We finished before 10pm. Overall a good experience but felt rushed to leave. 4 Stars.

                                                              Great service and food. We vacation in Eureka Springs in May and celebrate my daughter’s birthday at the Grotto every year. This time we needed to add an additional 4 people to our reservation for 3 at the last minute, and the restaurant worked with us to accommodate a table for 7. We were not disappointed. Everyone was very satisfied with the entrees they selected: pork chop, plank salmon, filet mignon, special beef short ribs, as well as sides, especially sautéed mushrooms, acorn squash, and appetizers. We will be back next year!

Sides were on point and our drinks were perfect. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. We will definitely go again!

                                                              One of my 10 ten lifetime dining experiences. The decor is understated. However, they come by the name Grotto honestly. We were seated next to the living stone cut away from the mountainside. The waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable (especially about wine) and professional. We started with a smoked goat cheese appetizer served with cranberries, honey and crisp grilled japalenos over a bed of fresh arugula. Spicy? Yes! Probably a top five appetizer. Served with toasted brochette. I had the smoked Beef Short Rib served with a mushroom ragout. They finish it on the grill. Crunchy crust but thoroughly tender inside and delicious with the combined Smokey and carmelized notes. This comes with a homemade horseradish sauce with just the desired bite. A very generous portion especially for the price point. My wife had the beef tenderloin. It was also a generous cut and perfectly prepared. Again , a crispy crust but very thin and the inside was a PERFECT medium rare. The grilled asparagus were obviously fresh and just the desired amount of char. We shared the Mac and cheese side. Perfection again. So incredibly creamy. I could have made a meal of just this. We had bread pudding for dessert. It was very good and probably the lightest I've ever eaten, which was great considering rich dinner. Reservations are suggested. The working bunny store is across the street. Trained rabbits hand you change or your credit card, your receipt and your bag.

                                                              As in the name, it's a wood fire restaurant. All of the items have a wonderful smoke flavor. The two dishes served to us were tenderloin of steak and porkchops. Both had a great crusting and well flavorful. The pork chop was juicy. The steak cooked just as ordered. The Mac and cheese can use a special review as it it wonderful. Beside to eat it warm. Once it cools it will become very thick. Ordered the Brussels as an app. They come with a tasty dipping sauce. Definitely worth trying. The service is always stellar. I do recommend getting a reservation, if not, you'll be waiting a while as they have very limited seating. The seating area is small, but perfect for a one on one date. They have a couple of larger tables for bigger groups.

                                                              We had a very enjoyable dinner experience at Grotto last night. Monica our server was excellent. We noticed that the staff worked together as a team which was very impressive. The pepper goat cheese appetizer was excellent and we also enjoyed the grilled caesar salad. One of the locals in town told us to order the pork chop which was wonderful. The lightly smoked duck breast was delicious. We also enjoyed the portabella entrée. We thought it could’ve used a touch less of the balsamic. We will definitely return when we make a trip to Eureka Springs in the future. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
