It’s a great restaurant but that night was not up to par. I think the problem was they planned on a Kevin Hart concert for that night which was cancelled. the menu was changed. Our Drinks
and appetisers came at exactly the same time.
It’s a very good restaurant so I’ll give them another shot

Another great meal at Blue Grotto with a bonus "Eagles Tribute" concert. The band was GREAT and the food even better. Alesandro as always made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Well managed establishment and very comfortable from a COVID perspective. Nice setting on the patio. They truly try hard to satisfy their customers. Will be back.

Loved the ambiance! Outside deck was great! Service was impeccable, food a bit disappointing. I loved my kale salad, but the calamari appetizer was way too salty! The aioli sauce was really good. My husband had the shrimp scampi and was not impressed. He felt it was too bland with not enough punch, again salt does not solve all problems with a dish.

Went to the Blue Grotto for dinner on the deck and had a bonus concert that was taking place in the Beer Garden. Was very loud, but a lot of fun and was a nice time and something different. The band was very good. Food as usual was awesome and service well thought out. Manager Allesandro stopped by multiple times to be sure we were happy. Upon arrival we noticed some patrons not being very nice because they could not get a table without a reservation (they were booked) but he handled it very professionally even as they didn't. If you want to eat here in the summer... you need to reserve early for weekend dining. I will definitely be back and will make a reservation.

Everything was great Food was delicious and tasted very fresh. Servers were friendly and very attentive. View was great with trees and lots of blooming hydrangeas.

From a Covid standpoint, tables were far apart...even more than the required distance. Only outdoor dining was available. The only part that made me uncomfortable and I didn’t understand was that you needed to enter the building to see a hostess and be taken to your table. Outside there were ample ramps/walkways and gates to the outdoor dining, so it didn’t seem necessary to bring people inside when a hostess stand could have been set up outdoors. That was my only call out.

Veal chop special was excellent. Husband had monkfish which was delicous. Dessert, old fashioned peach something with icecream had very few peaches. Dining outside was really nice and social distancing and sanitization was observed.
