We generally like Grotto. We had a 6:30 reservation and when we arrived they said we had to wait for a table. The place was packed and the staff was clearly overwhelmed. Everything was hectic, waiters were short tempered because they were under pressure. Surprisingly the food came out quickly—too quickly—we were still eating out starters when the entrees arrived. I will assume this was a one off problem night and will go back, but our special occasion celebration was not what we were hoping for!!!!
This was a great place for an afternoon business lunch , really great service, lively and high spirited environment and great food to boot
Grotto consistently delivers great food at great value with attentive service.
One of our regular places. It was good as usual. A bit noisier than usual though.
Grotto's is among my favorite eating places....Starting with the ambience, then the service and last but certainly not the lease is the food. Excellent on all accounts. Dr. and Mrs. Weatherly
Great overall! I don't know why it's been so long since my last visit. I'll return soon.
Picked up my wife after she had a late flight arrival. Where to eat at 10PM on a Sunday?
The Grotto was not only open, the kitchen had most of the menu , the service was attentive and the food was great.
Will keep this in mind for those times when going home to fix a late meal is just not the choice.
Loved the Grotto - great Italian wine, food, service and ambience!
Great service & food as always. Thank you! Grotto never disappoints.
Food is wonderful. Service is great especially if you have one of Rafael's tables!
Love the scampi grotto. Also the sea bass and salmon are very good. Service was excellent.
The quality of the food was not up to our expectations, but the service was excellent. Perhaps it was the special of the day. Conveniently located and great ambiance in the dinning room. We will go back.
Friday night, date night with the wife. Always excellent food, service was good just tapered off toward the end of the meal and getting the check, uncharacteristic of this establishment. Had a reservation and get irritated at being sat in the back of the restaurant by the kitchen door vs more pleasurable tables in the center. Just a personal dislike.
It is one of my favorite places to eat. Great food and service.
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.
