    We had the filet and it was probably the most fantastic steak of our entire life! Tender and perfectly cooked and seasoned. I literally woke up this morning thinking about it and wishing I could have more! Compliments to the chef! The noise level was a little loud, given the acoustics of the room and the natural rock formations that are incorporated, but that’s also exactly what made the ambiance so cool and unique. The only negative was the service. Our server had to be reminded that we didn’t get part of order and kept trying to take our food before we were finished, which was making us feel rushed. We found it to be a little rude. Otherwise, we loved it!

    Second visit in a row that they have had troubles with my wife’s meal. Last trip her steak was way over cooked and very heavily charred. This trip the acorn squash wasn’t cooked well, very hard flesh. She got a second one that was a little better but still was not cooked completely. We really like this restaurant and hope our next trip they get things back on track or it will likely be our last try.

    Another solid dining experience at Grotto in Eureka Springs. From the ambience to the service to the food, this restaurant hits all the marks. We have dined here since 2017, and it is the most consistent venue in the Eureka Springs area. Grotto is a must when in Eureka Springs. Recommendations include the smoked naked wings, filet, cedar plank salmon, asparagus, grotto fires, and don’t forget the salted caramel cake.

    We have eaten at Grotto many times and this last time was particularly good. We always love the quail popper, brussel sprouts and Grotto fries, but the pork chop was particularly outstanding, as was the salmon--bith cooked to perfection! Tried the naked wings for the first time--they were huge and delicious, and we paired them with the chipotle aioli. Everything was outstanding! Thank you!

    Dining was a little pricey, but well worth it and we’ll definitely go back. We don’t usually go out for a grilled dinner because my husband is so good with the grill, but even he admits it was much better than he can do. We had the pork chop and salmon. They were both VERY good and our server had the perfect suggestion for wine pairing. The only down side is parking…but I guess that’s to be expected in Eureka Springs.

    The steak was fabulous, the wine was very good, but a little pricy. The waiter could not have been better. The pork chop had a great bark but it was dry, not juicy at all. I hope they have a NY strip steak next time (yes I will go again).

    For our Anniversary Dinner, my wife and I decided to try a new spot. We decided on Grotto Wood Fired Grill & Wine Cave. We arrived early 5pm, and found parking right out front. There was an interesting choice of music playing when we walked in, but the volume was low enough that we didn't mind. Our waiter was very good and very attentive, so service was excellent. I suggest you bring your own bottle of wine and pay the corkage fee $$. We ordered appetizers, quail poppers and the mushroom Bisk, both were excellent. For the main course we had the Filet Mignon and the Short Rib with sides of baked potato, and sautéed mushrooms. We very much enjoyed the sides and I'm sure if you like that strong Woodfire Smokey flavor, this place is for you. We however decided weren't crazy about such a strong deep Smokey flavor. Our dessert was the chocolate mousse Oreo cake, delicious. All in all a little pricy, but again it was a special occasion.

    We had another wonderful dinning experience at the Grotto. The shrimp starter was excellent! The steak cooked well & the wine selection pared nicely to the meal. The swordfish was well-seasoned, and acorn squash delicious. The only let-down was the vanilla cake with sea-salt caramel. Service was too-notch as always and ambience pleasant. As always we recommend!

    This is our second year in a row to have our anniversary dinner at The Grotto. It’s been nothing short of perfect on both occasions. Last night we had the Brussels sprouts and Creekstone Sliders to start, split the ribeye (and ended up take half with us because it was sizable), and salted caramel cake for dessert. Food was delectable, service was top notch, and the atmosphere is perfection. Highly recommend!

    During the winter months, it would be nice if there was an apparatus to keep the cold out of the restaurant. I’m not sure I would dine there again during the cold months. Appetizers and entrées are good, but overly salted. Desserts were underwhelming. Decor and service were lovely

    The food is outstanding. I had a smoked filet which was tremendous and perfectly cooked. My wife had a salmon special which was delicious. The vanilla cake was very tasty. Only real complaint is the restaurant was pretty loud the night we dined, but everyone was happy so noise is to be expected. Overall, great food, cool setting, and very good service.

    The food was absolutely delicious unfortunately, 3/4 of the way through my meal I found a hair under my baked potato. I would’ve appreciated a night manager to come over and apologize to me but no one made any attempt to apologize. Once I saw the hair I was finished with dinner, loss of appetite, even though my Salmon and baked potato were delicious I just couldn’t eat any more of my dinner.
