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.

Service was excellent along with the food. Only complaint is the hostess who sat was rude especially when we didn’t want to be seated by the kitchen door: outside of that our experience was great!

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.

They went above and beyond for us. Our table wasn’t ready when our reservation time was. The manager and waiter delivered two appetizers to our table as soon as we sat down to apologize for the wait. During dinner, my 10 year old child began to choke. The manager followed my husband and son in the bathroom to help out and brought water. We will definitely be back soon! I highly recommend this restaurant! The food was incredible!
