Service was clearly by the B team, inexperienced and young. Kept asking if we were done w your plates. Other than that (which is a big “that,” it was fine).
My client and I weren't bothered with ordering which gave us time to catch up.
We ordered the special on lunch menu. It was great.
See U soon.
Overall the food was great. I ordered something that was not on the menu and it came out perfectly. A little wait taking our order but other than that everything was great.
Great food, the pasta was just right not aldente, i don’t like my noodles firm. It was perfect , not hard and not too soft , it was just right .
I am never disappointed when I come to Grotto. Even on a busy day like Mother's Day, there was absolutely nothing lacking. Thank you for making my Mother's Day more perfect than it already was.
Great meal and menu selection is one of our favorites. Great service!
Waiter spilled drink down my wife’s back. Service was slow.
Great date night. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. It was our first time visiting this location and it was a memorable experience. While we were eating dinner, we spied the desserts and decided to splurge on a piece of chocolate cake. It was yummy! Definitely leave room for dessert.
Celebrating Mother’s Day with family.
Good food & great evening to sit on patio, but waiter was very slow to get drinks, bring food out etc. He was very nice but extremely slow & the restaurant was not busy —it was a Tuesday night. First drink he brought my friend ended up with a bug in it by the time he got to the table & it took a good 15 minutes before he came back with a new drink. Should have never taken this long. I used to go to Grotto all the time several years ago, but quit going because of the poor service and it appears nothing has changed. Other waiters waiting tables on the porch seemed much more attentive than ours was—very frustrating & disappointing.
Wonderful! We love the salmon Bacca and the mezzanotte chocolate cake.
Consistent is what I love about this restaurant. Great food an service.
Outstanding food with excellent service for Birthday celebration.
Excellent lunch in the Galleria area. Tomato basil soup is one of the best. Willie was our server, a true Landry’s veteran. He knows the menu backwards and forwards.
Tell him what you would like, he knows how to get it done.
I love the Grotto. We had great service, and the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you for such a good meal.
Enjoyed birthday lunch with my friends. The baby salmon special was delicious!!
Had a friend from Korea come into town. He was impressed with the service and wait staff allowing us to wait on my wife to appear.
I had mentioned the pizza since my youngest son likes your choices. I had my usual, salmon picatta, which was,very good.
I'll be back!
We had a marvelous meal and excellent service. I love the ambiance. We can't wait to go again.
Great as always! Servers were super nice!
Food,service,wine—all were very good and memorable. Very noisy but fun. Wish we had had enough room for desert; the desert cart was impressive! Overall, a very pleasant experience.
Service was great! We got our table right away, waiter was attentive at all times, food was delicious and served fast. Great place and definitely invited to come back.
We always enjoy Grotto - good food, attentive service! And unlike some nice restaurants in Houston they don't take up the entire parking lot for their valet - much appreciated! This time they went above and beyond by calling to let us know my husband had left his credit card at the restaurant. Another example of excellent service.
Son is a New Yorker and eat in some of the finest restaurants there...he wanted freshness and got it at Grotto
We went to have our family Easter meal. The food was very good and the ambiance was enjoyable. Our server was very lacking unfortunately and put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable dining experience.
Grotto is getting "tired" - our table top was scratched and had significant signs of wear. It was also dirty when we sat down - just gross. Service was good. The food was good - but nothing special. None of the other 3 diners were wowed by their meals. My salmon was overcooked and dry. The scampi focaccia appetizer was more of a pizza that lacked scampi sauce - just some shrimp and a few strips of basil. Been dining at Grotto since it was located in its original location in highland village and have enough history to know things are headed in the wrong direction. Based upon this last visit, I may be done as there are better options around town.
Everything was good or very good, except for the food. Two of our group got the Italian sausage/peppers/eggs for brunch. It was smothered in tomato sauce, and was not at all what the diners were expecting. Neither person ate much of it.
The french toast was good.
The cappuccino was very small.
The server was very good.
Excellent food & service as always at this fantastic Houston establishment!
Of all the restaurants now owned by the Landry's chain, this is one of our favorites. I can't say much for some of their venues but they got it right in this takeover. The former owner, Tony Valone, was the creator of the original menu and some of his masterful creations still exist. Enjoy the Pasta del Mar or the crusted salmon...dinner for three was actually quite reasonable. Service is always attentive. Food is always good.
Excellent food, the service outstanding!!! Great option!!! Best Gnochi in long time!!
Great atmosphere, but above all, outstanding service and food! Will definitely come back again!
Only problem was waiting for clients and told the front desk. When my clients arrived they sat them on the other side of the restaurant and not with me.
Good food. I probably would not come back on a Saturday night. Took 30 minutes to get wine and one hour to get dinner. However veal was delicious.
Fabulous ! Wonder lunch for a birthday outing
Enjoyed wait Dr's recommendation of chicken picata . client had chopped salad which was presented very well. Will be back.
I found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly, each and every person. The valet parking was easy, the table was ready, the service prompt, and the food delicious. A winner for sure. They have a very nice outdoor area for cocktails which looked tempting.
One of my favorites. Great customer service. Great drinks.
Always great food and great service from our favorite waiter Rafael.
Great local feel restaurant. Meatball appetizer is top flight.
Menu has an item for every palate.
Food was great. Waiter could have done a better job. Didn’t come around much and we had to ask for more bread and a dessert menu.
