La Grotta Ratings and Reviews
Made note that I am Vegan. Computer at check-in even showed 1 Vegan. Waiter had ZERO clue our table had a Vegan, nor could he answer any questions about egg/dairy/cream, suggestions for meals. "Uhh...uh....." (his answers). Additionally, he continued to offer dairy items.
La Grotta was an excellent place for a romantic birthday celebration! The food was excellent. Our servers were on top of everything - great recommendations. I had flowers delivered in advance and our table was set up and ready when we arrived. I'll be back the next trip to Atlanta.
We had a lovely evening on the patio. Great food, service, wine. Every menu choice was excellent including a very generous lobster dish. La Grotta makes any meal a memorable occasion. We appreciate the consistency and quality, and we have been enjoying great meals at La Grotta for many, many years.
Best of ALL the REST- This Iconic 39 year old restaurant simply never fails- from your 1st greeting walking in to a great cocktail to exemplary service -Spectacular Wine List- freshly procured dishes and-quality without compromise. It does not get any better in Atlanta. Considered one of the best restaurants not only in this region, but the entire USA- this is a MUST!
This restaurant is a very special place. Tucked away in a residential building yet it is truly a gem of a place. The wait staff is very attentive and experienced. They only added to the experience
The food was outstanding. Each dish we had was prepared to perfection and so enjoyable
La Grotta kills it on every front: lovely romantic atmosphere, attentive waiters, absolutely delicious food, beautiful environment, great wine selection... what more could you ask for? They offer perfect seating for date nights as an added bonus. I've been here twice now and will definitely be returning. Would rate 10/5 stars if possible.
We celebrated our anniversary at La Grotta on Saturday evening and the experience was one of the most enjoyable I've ever had. The food and wine were oustanding and the ambience and service quality greatly enhanced our experience. I can say with certainty that we will definitely be back.
The ambiance was fantastic and the quality of our meal was exceptional.
Unfortunately the level of service was not up to the same standards. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly at first however was absent during the rest of our meal. It seemed as though he was more interested with taking care of others who appear to have been frequent diners. During the course of our meal he passed our table a number of times without acknowledging us or asking how things were or if we needed anything. We had to ask to order our dessert from another waiter.
We frequent a number of exceptional restaurants for business and pleasure and have been accustomed to having the service on par with the quality and reputation of the restaurant and that’s why our experience was such a surprise.
This was our first time at La Grotta and we’re willing to give it another chance . The quality of our meal and atmosphere is worth another opportunity, however we hope to have a different experience with the service.
