Grotto - Downtown Houston
The food is so scrumptious here. The service is great too and they validate your parking
Delicious food, quick service, friendly staff, and COVID safe protocols.
We always enjoy this place!
Very limited menu, not many options for someone that doesn't eat meat
We were looking forward to dining at Grotto after finally getting out of quarantine!
The service was great...very friendly staff!
The food was horrible...
We will not go there again!
I live this place. My husband and I go every time we are in Houston. Every dish we’ve had has been amazing, although the margarita pizza is my favorite. Great wine selection and the cocktails are really good too!! The wait staff is awesome and are very helpful in selections. I highly recommend going here. It’s one of the best restaurants downtown
Was enjoyable but not a spectacular experience. Food was a mix of very good and okay. I did want more for the $200 we spent.
Fantastic food. Short rib gnocchi OMG🤤! Limited menu due to Covid. Would like to go back and try more. Ate in the bar area. Service was top notch. Bartender (can’t remember her name) waited on us. Made great craft cocktails and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Good whiskey selection. Also ordered the meatball appetizer (loved how it was plated and had great flavor) Entrées were salmon (wonderful), straw and hay (very very good) and a meats pizza (thin crisp crust with good flavor). I’d absolutely go back and recommend it to friends. Thanks for being back open so we had someplace nice and different to try for dinner.
Peach Bellinis are to die for! The interior decorations are so beautiful too. Had meatballs and some spaghetti. 10/10
Music was a bit loud but I know that's how Tillman wants his high energy establishments.
Fantastic service, wine and cocktails, and the skewers were amazing!
Food terrific best chef ever as well as bartender and hostess!
Manager must be new not friendly last one was really friendly
Thank you for being open
Always excellent food and staff!! I will always return
So happy that Grotto’s is open for inside dining again! We had a fabulous dinner and felt really safe with their social distances. The manager, Sean, came by our table to thank us for coming in and made us feel very welcome and appreciated 😀. We will definitely be back again!
Excellent food with great ambiance
Fantastic restaurant near so much in downtown Houston! We had reservations (so glad as it was crowded) and were promptly seated. Server was amazing - he guided us thru the menu and had great suggestions. The only reason we did not rate the food 5 stars was the bread that accompanied our anti-pasta board. It was a little too smoky for our taste - a little overbearing. Wine selection is very good. We had a couple of small plate selections that were amazing. It was a wonderful dinner experience. We'll be back!
The Red Snapper was delicious!
Very fast service! Waiter was very attentive.
We were sat outside, waited 15 minutes and no one came to our table. We left. Terrible service!
Good food. Seated quickly. Not an overwhelming amount of options but good. Cheesecake was delicious.
Food and service were excellent.
First time at Grotto in Houston...what a find. Came upon it while walking by and decided to make reservations. Nothing but a positive experience and the food was awesome to boot.
Service was impersonal and transactional. The food quality was ok but pasta dishes had an appropriate amount of meat but barely any pasta. I heard multiple other tables mention this also.
Love this restaurant. One of my downtown favorites. Any pizza is great. The grilled cheese and soup is the best!!!
We ordered 4 small plates. All were presented nicely and tasted great. Wine was perfect with everything. Favorite was the short ribs.
Server was very attentive. Gave us free dessert for our anniversary celebration.
Would definitely return. This place would also be great for a group.
Delicious food and excellent service!
All of our entrees and salads were delicious! Fun atmosphere but a little too noisy.
It was a good date night with great food and drinks.
It was wonderful!!! Do need reservations on those busy nights, but the staff was so wonderful to help!
We had first visited The Grotto two years ago and enjoyed it so much that it was the first place we ate upon our return. Everyone loved their experience! The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. It felt like visiting a favorite neighborhood spot! We can't wait to return!
Went for friends birthday, excellent service and atmosphere
Overall was fine just not much attention to table or even raising our special occasion as birthday was on Valentines Day...not one mention from the host or waiter and was seating in high traffic area 15ft from the front door.
Food was great, host and wait staff could be more accommodating as appetizer plates were empty and still on table when entree arrived making it a challenge to place the entree down.
Had an incredible meal! Wine list is amazing. Small plate fav was the Short rib gnocchi, the Skewers were also fantastic. Delish! For entree the Capra and Osso Bucco were perfection! Highly recommend this place. Can't wait to return!
Contemporary restaurant in the heart of downtown. Frequent the Galleria location, but there is no comparison and this will be my go to from this point forward. From the appetizers to main course, everything my wife and I ate burst with flavors. The wine list is extensive and fit our "by the glass" desire. Traffic is heavy, so if you have the option of taking an UBER or similar, my suggestion is to do so as parking can be a headache given the nature of the area.
The food was great! I loved the fettuccini Alfredo with chicken. We called ahead so that we could get our order quick, and that was very well accomidated
We ordered a few of the small plates just to get a variety and it was wonderful. Butternut tortellini, steak bites, ceasar salad, Calamari and Short Rib Gnocchi. They all were delish!
Great service and environment. The Lobster Bisque is a must try!
Valentines night and the atmosphere was perfect.
The place was amazing and quite easy to get there! I am so coming back soon!
