Food is consistently very good at this restaurant. In the past service was excellent but our most recent visit it was obvious they were understaffed. Other than this we enjoy going to this restaurant and in the past I would have listed five stars for everything.

Prior to the pandemic, Grotto was one of our favorite restaurants. They were closed for an extended period of time during the pandemic, so this was our first visit there since then. The food was just as good if not better than before the pandemic. We took my parents and everyone really enjoyed the delicious meal. Keep up the great work and highly recommended!

The food was great and our waitress was great as well. The dishes were enough for my boyfriend and I to split, and they came out pretty fast. Overall a great experince.

Service was good but it was very difficult to hear the wait staff. Several things were dropped and broken around us during our dining experience.
My son had to send his meal back because the clams were full of sand and it had infiltrated the pasta and sauce. The waitress was very helpful and took it off our bill and provided a complimentary dessert for us.

It was good, we ordered off the restaurant week menu. Was only one desert option, which I personally did not care for as I do not like tiramisu. But other then that everything was pretty good

We had the Restaurant Week menu, which was very good. Only thing I would mention is service was too fast. Our appetizers came out, then the pizza and the servers were bringing our entrees and we weren’t finished our appetizers, it felt very rushed. The one waitress had two entree on her hand and said if we pile everything in front of one person she’ll get after she puts down my guests entrees.

Food was good just wish service wouldn’t have been so rushed.

We love visiting Grottos, we love the food and the friendly service however, we really were disappointed with the change in the menu in not offering the traditional bruschetta that we’re fond of . It’s been replaced with an eggplant version…not for us!!

Poor service and bad food. Waited 20min for a drink at the bar and received a bad drink. Was told at 7:11 we had to wait 4 minutes until our reservation at 7:15 before we could be seated and there were multiple empty tables. Food was not great, could not even finish the meal.

The antipasto dish was very lame. Could have made a better, more appealing one myself at home. Not what I expect at a nice restaurant. Main meals were great though. Service was not good. Our waiter got us a glass of wine and took our order, but he never came back again. Never refilled water. No second glass of wine even though they were empty after the appy. He came back with the check but never asked how our meal was. We will not eat there again.

Poor experience. Service was poor, didn’t get water at the table until 30 minutes after being sat, in the waitress’s greeting to our table she said “the kitchen is backed up so I can’t take your order, I’ll be back”, after finally getting our food and waiting an offer of dessert the waitress came over and said “you’re mad at me aren’t you?” When we asked if the kitchen was caught up and if we could get dessert the waitress walked away and started looking at the kitchen and couldn’t give us an answer. We asked for the check instead and got dessert elsewhere. The experience probably would have been different if we sat on the other side of the restaurant because the other waitress seemed to have her section organized better.

The hostess sat a table near us, and after touching the napkins and utensils, the guests asked to move. The staff moved the people, rearranged the place settings, and a little while later as were leaving, they sat the next guests. In the middle of a pandemic, the table was not cleaned before seating the next guests. Not that it would have been acceptable at any time, but this was just worse.

Very disappointing. My boyfriend and I went on a Saturday night. Although the service was pretty quick and the servers were attentive, unfortunately the food was just simply not good. The calamari was SO salty to the point where we couldn’t eat it. The table next to us sent back 3 pizza pies because they were not cooked through fully. Our entrees were “okay” but for us to leave most of our meals untouched says a lot (and it was not cheap). I would definitely recommend going elsewhere.
