The food was cold of a very poor quality. The service was poor and there was no ambience at all. The food had no flavour and needed to be heavily seasoned just to be able to eat the food. Would never recommend it.

Although we have been to Las Vegas and stayed at the Golden Nugget numerous times, this was our first time to eat at The Grotto. We were particularly hungry for pizza and theirs did not disappoint. The margarite pizza was very good with lots of fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil on a thin crust. We also had
a very tasty Caesar salad. There was a nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle. We will certainly come back to The Grotto and checkout some of their other Italian offerings, as well as the scrumptous looking desserts.

Best food Experience! Exemplary food! Gnocchi’s were so light. Sauce was perfect! Meatballs large, tasty and made perfectly! Veal piccata was the best I’ve tasted. And our server was friendly and served our needs, customer first. We talked about our experience hours after we left! We’ll definitely be back!

If you need to be convinced to dine here, then this review should do the trick! This place is just what you want in excellent Italian fair! They have it all ambiance, service, flavour, and fantastic food selections. Everything on the menu looks great but what we had was even better from quality to flavour. There's no going home without a full satisfying feeling either; they give you just the appropriate portions. The staff is great at making your visit worth much more than what you'll pay too. They helped us with our Open Table voucher and didn't blink when we had troubles. They just jumped in and offered their assistance and then some.

We had excellent service. One person in our party had a food allergy and I wrote it on the reservation notes and the server knew when she came to the table. Food was fresh, well presented, tasty and there was a good variety to choose from for all. The service was timely, so we could get to our show on time. We especially liked our server, Carol.

This used to be our favorite restaurant, and we ate here every trip. The last time 3 out 7 entrees were terrible and we waited 1 1/2 hrs for our food. This last time for some the food was a disappointment. Therefore, we are going to take a break and go elsewhere for awhile.

Ordered the special for the day. It was a sea bass dish but it tasted fishy. Don’t think it was fresh and requested a substitution which the waitress happily granted. Got the chicken piccata which was delicious.

This was my second time dining at Grotto and both times were outstanding! I love the chicken ravioli (which was not on the menu for my second visit) So, instead I tried the Ravioli Alla Vodka which was just as good. It was so flavorful! The warm bread and oil served in the beginning is so good! We also had two delicious glasses of red wine, Daou Cabernet and Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir. I came with a group of 6 and everyone was very pleased with their meal. Very authentic. We will definitely be back!!

We have dined at Grotto numerous times and have always had great service and excellent food, for that reason, I would recommend it. However, last Friday night we waited over an hour for our food and when I got mine, the chicken was dry and overcooked. My husband specifically asked and reiterated no croutons and the soup came with croutons. Upon finishing the meal, we had to wait for the check. We were now in a hurry as we had a concert to go to. The manager came over and did adjust our bill and offered a nightcap, which we were not interested in, but I appreciated the effort. I'm disappointed my favorite dish is off the menu and that the service was so bad....hoping it was just an off night.....

We were staying at the Golden Nugget and wanted to dine at a nice restaurant, but without the high prices.
The Grotto was just the place. I had the chicken cutlet, my husband, Chicken Parmesean. Both entrees were excellent. Price of each entree was very reasonable

Would definitely return to the Grotto again.

Surprised that the menu had changed, but very happy with the selections. we ate in the Grotto both nights that we were at the Golden Nugget. Bar service was a little slow, but understandable with the World Market going on! Food was excellent as always. The gals at the front desk are always terrific and very helpful to get us seated 45 minutes before our reservation time!

This part has nothing to do with the Grotto. We tried to get drinks at the Rush Lounge on Tuesday, August 31, before our Grotto reservations. We went into the Rush Lounge at 6pm and we were the only customers there. After 5 minutes a group of 4 came into the Lounge and sat at the bar. The two bartenders and the waitress never came over to us nor to the people at the bar. No hello, no taking our order either. The bartenders completely ignored us and the other group. After waiting 15 minutes, we decided to leave. I know this is NOT the way the Golden Nugget normally does business.

The food & hostess were excellent. Our server (older, short haired woman who never told us her name) was rude & condescending. After 20 mins we had to ask the hostess for a server. She had been by numerous times but not once acknowledged us as her table. When my husband accidentally recalled an entree wrong, she was blatantly rude. Her condescending attitude finally caused him to stop & throw her attitude back at her after several minutes. We absolutely loved our food & the casual atmosphere. Hope for a different waiter/waitress if we return on our next visit!

Celebrating my birthday with my husband. Stated that on my reservation. We were seated by the pool, although I would have preferred the main room - low lighting and more intimate, but I wasn’t given a choice or the feeling I should ask. Our server, although efficient, was not as welcoming as he should have been. And, I admit it sounds petty, didn’t extend a ‘thanks for coming’ or a Happy Birthday. I used my Landry’s Birthday reward. Still no happy birthday. The food was great! Appetizer, a shared entree and dessert- all fantastic and I would do any of them again. But the next time I want to celebrate and feel special I’ll go somewhere else.
