The food was not up to Grotto's historical standard and I was disappointed. I will likely not go back for a while. Even the desserts were below historical quality and it seemed as though a new chef was in training. The sauces were watery. The seasoning was bland and overall experience was below par.

First time there. Veal was very good. My wife enjoyed her chicken with penne. The margherita pizza my daughter got was not what we thought was a traditional version but was ok.
We will come back - overall very good.

Excellent mid-afternoon meal; late lunch early dinner. Saw much attention to physical distancing between customers and most all the staff had masks and were using the hand sanitizers frequently. Exquisite Peppers and Sausage Pizza for me while my spouse enjoyed a delicious generous serving of linguine and clams. Service was very top notch by an old school waiter who was finding it difficult to engage with his mask over his mouth and thus ended up for the most part wearing it under his chin.

Dinner with my niece and her boyfriend. We love Grotto on Westheimer. It has the best food, service and just overall fun. We tried downtown Grotto and I’ll never go back there.
Food as always on Westheimer was fantastic. Our favorite go to restaurant. Always go for special occasions

For being in my late 30’s I was out aged by at least 30 years. Don’t get me wrong the older crowd didn’t affect this restaurant any. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. Hopefully I can enjoy Grotto for the next 30 years.

Food and service were great...however I hate where you keep the antipasto selection where everyone walks by it and coughs or sneezes on it... and I have also witnessed people put their fingers in it!

Excellent service especially from the sommelier. Everything we ordered was beautifully prepared. We've been to Grotto many times but this was an especially nice visit. Wish it were less busy/loud, but we could have a conversation without difficulty. We will be back.
