Grotto - Galveston - San Luis Resort
Great food and excellent service! Lots of menu options for everyone. A little noisy for dinner time, but everything was great overall!
Had our final vacation dinner here while visiting the San Luis Resort, but, like the other restaurants at San Luis, Grotto stands alone as an excellent establishment. We had attentive service and delicious meals. Will definitely return on our next trip to Galveston!
Perfect meal and top notch service from Brandi and Christian.
We ordered the special bruschetta with blueberry jam, the scallops, and the salmon, and I cannot begin to tell you how perfect the meal was. We deeply appreciated our server Barton and enjoyed the meal so much. Always a pleasure to say hello to the courteous and generous Christian, along with Brandi and Priscilla, who are friendly and impeccably kind.
Service was very good and the food was exceptionally good.
Love the happy hour
Excellent repas. Le service était impeccable, portions généreuses et drinks très goûteux. Nous avons apprécié notre expérience.
Birthday dinner. Always amazing and consistently great food! Nice staff. Attentive GM. You won’t be disappointed.
This place is absolutely amazing in every way. From the food to the service to the environment.
outstanding and responsive service. food was superb
Great service and pizzas were amazing.
Had dinner at the Grotto during weekend getaway to Galveston. Can’t say anything bad at all. Food was good, service was friendly and fast, and it’s nice place to enjoy a meal.
Great food and service
Sunday Night Fried Chicken and spaghetti family nights are the best deal in town!! The fried chicken is the best EVER and the spaghetti and meat sauce is second to none. It seriously is the best Ceasar Salad I have ever had and the 4th course dessert banana pudding is delicious. Our waiter, I'm sorry cannot remember his name, was WONDERFUL!! 2THUMBS WAYY UP!!
Awesome restaurant with great food and atmosphere!
Great service Food was awesome
We had a really large party, and the number of attendees kept increasing after we submitted the original reservation. The staff was extremely gracious to accommodate the additions even though they kept going on and on. We eventually went from 9 to 16 people. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I received numerous compliments from our guests.
Food was fabulous and great service. Very good wine selection.
There are no scallops BETTER than the scallops at Grotto. Also, it’s always nice to be in the company of Brandi and Christian. The service is great.
Service was flawed from beginning to end. It truly seemed as if no one was leading the dining room staff. From greeter to waiter to server plenty of misses occurred. Menu seemed complete but all of our dishes disappointed somewhat. Better options exist offsite the hotel.
Good food and service
Great meal and service.
Always have a very good experience with food and drink. The wait staff and additional staff are very attentive and get things done quickly. Will return frequently. Thank you for the rewarding dining experience.
I took my friend for a birthday dinner and we had an amazing time! Between the two of us we had two toddlers and an older child and felt very welcomed. The manager on duty, Christian was very attentive and kind, the French hostees was also very warm and welcoming, they both picked a few toys up the kids had dropped around the table. Our server (I forgot his name) took good care of us and each dish was amazing! We are already talking about our next dinner there.
Favorite happy Hour on the island...
The food was bland, at best. The marinara sauce tasted like it came out of the can, the cioppino was full of seafood but unremarkable, the shredded crabmeat in the pasta shells was just plain bad, and the spumoni was the American version with none of the texture of the real thing. With all that said, the service was impeccable.
Have eaten at other Grotto locations, this 1 is poor compared to the others. Was generous with my review because other locations are outstanding.
We often dine at this location but the service is getting progressively worse each time. 30 minutes to get our drinks and an hour and a half to get our meal. Our server was unapologetic and at one point a bit argumentative. The manager informed us on the way out that the kitchen covers both the restaurant and pool areas now and has become a constraint. They need to fix this quickly as I am not sure I am willing to give this location another chance.
Great food, it’s a very nice restaurant to go to in the San Luis if you’re staying there and not looking for a long wait or go off property. I’ll definitely be back!
My sister and I finally found the Grotto after a little searching and asking. It’s buried in the bowels of the San Luis Resort in Galveston. Once there, we were seated right away and had a wonderful waiter who was very polite, prompt, and knowledgeable. The food was very good—not Michelin three-star good, but good. We enjoyed a soft-shell crab appetizer, which we liked a lot. My sister had rigatoni with meatballs; I, the Margarita pizza. Both dishes were good, but I found my pizza a little too salty. As I have had this pizza at the Grotto before and loved it, I was a little disappointed. But it might have been a one-off situation as the pizza is as I normally like it—thin and sufficiently basilly enough. My sister had Markers Mark manhattans and I had the Hess chardonnay. I selected poorly and can’t recommend that wine based on my experience. We both had dessert and they were great. I don’t think they make a bad dessert. All in all a nice evening.
Always visit when I’m in Galveston. My favorite Grotto!!
Excellent dinner with business friends
Always Great Food & service!! One of our favorite spots in Galveston.
Great Cocktails too!!
Our server Barton was so helpful with everything, and we enjoyed saying hello to Camille. The scallop dish is consistently excellent, and we always have such a great time at Grotto. Thanks again to the chef and to the staff.
Grotto, always steps up. We love the food, drinks and desserts. Our service Saturday night was outstanding.
Love this place! Great food and drinks every time and very family friendly!
Food was excellent and service was great. Will definitely be going back!
Best Happy Hour on the Island and best Bartender (Susie)...
Everyone is every nice and make you feel at home...
