All was good. We had to wait on the hostess to take to go orders before they would set us

When we arrived we were only the 2nd table in the restaurant and yet we were sat next to a very loud table of 6 with young children. For a romantic night out it wasn’t great for We even stated it was our anniversary so I felt they could have been more conscious of the seating arrangement.

Great ambiance, & the addition of the Vic & Anthony’s crab cake is a winner. The jumbo lump crab and shrimp over cappella was also ver y good. I’d steer away from the chicken served over pasta with arga and artichokes. I’d give it a 4 on a 1 -10 scale —10 being the best.

My dinner was good but my husband's dinner was too spicy and heavy (Bolognese). The outside tables are located near the pools so screaming children provided the background noise. The San Luis has just reopened and they are very understaffed so, while our server was very nice, the service wasn't what it should be. Hopefully they'll be back up to speed soon!

Great food and service. Was good on social distancing until about 7:30 pm; good thing we were done or we would have left. I wouldn’t recommend it during prime hours, not safe

Our salad was too acidic, but everything else was delicious! I had the penne shrimp/crab pasta dish and it was perfect. My wife had her fav pizza. Grotto is Always a favorite of ours when we come to Galveston.

We dine at Grotto/Galveston very frequently and love the food prepared Chef Serg. Always takes time to chat with us. The bar staff is the best, especially Uliana! We always feel at home. Will be back next week. Ambiance is also a plus.

First dine-out since early March. Menu was light as would be expected but the food and service was excellent. We were the only seated table in the restaurant. Some parties came later but the effect of the government lockdown was apparent. Love this place. Dine out and support your local servers!

Inside The Grotto, service and food, as well as distancing was fine. I was first told that my reservation was changed to the patio by the pool. There is an entrance door to the hotel right next to the tables where food was being served. Almost every guest in the pool area was entering that door with no masks, and I was able to see many of them coughing and sneezing right next to guests food. I could see this from the table where I was seated. I am so glad that I refused to be seated outdoors. WHAT the hell are you thinking? How many of your outside dining guests have you made sick? I have pictures of 15 people in the Jacuzzi, and several guests around the fire pit, no masks, no distancing. Perhaps you should have restricted entry to the hotel to the other 2 doors, not around the food. Totally Unacceptable!

Galveston's Grotto at the San Luis is always a great experience. The selections of both food and wine give you many choices and the service is always excellent. We will continue to support all our favorite restaurants.
