Great location for events at Minute Maid Park as well as convention center
To much garlic in the pasta took way too long to get our food. Mixed up the checks. Just not good
Excellent food and service!
Excellent meal with great service I've come to expect from Grotto
Our server Luis was absolutely wonderful.
Top to bottom Five stars!!!
It was way past our reservation and management made up for it and made it right. Thank you amazing staff.
We liked the restaurant but the service was exceptionally slow for a day when there were very few customers. It shouldn’t take 40 minutes to get a thin crust margarita pizza.
Food was good but not very hot. May have been sitting a while before served.
We had both lunch and dinner, best Salmon sandwich I have ever had seasoned perfectly.
Good quick pizza for dinner. Recommend anytime
I was there this Saturday Sep, 15th to celebrate my birthday with very special friends. From working for a couple of years as a bartender and server all I have to say from my experience at grotto downtown is that service could have been a lot better. Our experience was not the best.
We were greeted by our waiter minutes after being seated. Had water and their signature flatbread right away. Drinks arrived quickly as did the appetizers. Our main courses arrived promptly after the appetizers were cleared but never felt rushed. (We were heading to Astro game so we did have a time constraint that we had shared with our waiter.) The manager stopped by to check on our food and service. All in all a nice experience.
Great food and outstanding service. A great place to grab a bite before a show or game. Service is top notch and food is always amazing!
Absolutely delicious! Went with a group and shared small plates and ordered entrees. Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu when we had questions. Would go back in a heartbeat and recommend.
Just a very cool place, food and service are excellent.
Grotto never disappoints! Great food and location.
Girls night out before Journey concert. Waiter split Grotto salad for us and we split 2 small plates of tenderloins and paramesan FF and Chicken Pizza along with drinks... more than enough food. So relaxing and fun for the four of us!!
Eric was fantastic server!
Too dark. Menu too limited
What a wonderful evening! Really enjoyed the food and the environment!
This is one of our "go to" restaurants in Downtown Houston. The food is always especially tasty. One thing that could be improved upon is the service. It is often erratic and uneven. We don't, however, let that ruin what is otherwise a lovely dinner.
Great ambiance + great food! Loved the industrial chic decor!
My wife and I visited Grotto Downtown for our 1 year wedding anniversary and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves! With excellent service, amazing food, and fun (but relaxing) atmosphere, we definitely will be back!
A great oasis for lunch. The food never disappoints.
Overall the food had too much red pepper, 3 dishes all way too spicy for what it was.
The service was way below average/expectations. Will not return.
We met some friends there before seeing the ELO concert. Perfect for what we were doing. We could park nearby and Grotto takes a reservation so we didn't have to worry about having a table. Great choice for dinner before a concert or sports event downtown. We will definitely go back. Very unique decor. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there.
Great food & service
Music could be turned down a notch
As always... phenomenal.
The waiter was very knowledgeable about Gluten Free and also but together a great option for another guest at our table with dietary restrictions.
There were four of us. Two loved their meal and two did not. The chicken dishes were very dry and tough. The restaurant is nice and our waitress was awesome.
The environment, food and service was very good. I would definitely recommend.
Fantastic service and food. Loved the silent waiter approach of the wait staff
Only major complaint is that there is no valet available on the weekends. This makes going there very inconvenient if you are not already at the George R Brown convention center.
Food is delicious, and ambiance is very nice.
Very great atmosphere, many upscale choices to try some authetic Italian tastes.
Service was terrible. We asked the server for a minute to look over the drink menu after joining our friends that had already ordered and received drinks. She promptly returned a few minutes later, at which point we already had a chance to look over the menu. So we ordered drinks and food all together. After which, the server disappeared and did not bring our drinks until after the food arrived, offering no apology or explanation as to the delay. Very disappointing service, first time I've had this poor of service at the Grotto Downtown.
Always enjoy exceptional service and high quality food here.
this was a so so experience, slow service although making an effort, food was ok, nothing special, but not bad, very loud and uncomfortable
I liked it so much I went twice during my stay in Houston. Thank you for hosting the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority 2018 Boule. Your staff provided excellent service to our members.
Very friendly staff. Service was good considering the restaurant was extremely busy.
