Its a great restaurant as long as you don't mind the smell and odor of smoke. With the casino attached and people allowed to smoke on the casino floor it just takes away from this good restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are great it just smells!

Although our server was excellent she was alone on the floor. There was a bus person to bring our food out but because there was only one server there was a delay before she came back.

The food was excellent and the service, provided by server Maryann, was outstanding. She was extremely accommodating. The restaurant is in the slots area of the casino, so it is noisy, but I would return for the delicious food and service.

I have been a customer before many times and alway sat with Keith,but yesterday the girl said no table and asked us to wait at least 30-40 minutes after having a reservation….finally seated the server came after a 30 minute wait…I don’t care that your people are under staffed….tell the owners to hire people who want to work and teach the staff how to fill in other portions….I had a restaurant of 250 tables in New York and never had my staff under staff because of call outs at like yesterday….shameful for a corporation like Landry’s….the owner should be a shamed of yesterday performance….Hire better people …tell your 3 hostess to get their hands dirty….plus the waitress we had was no professional when approaching the table …unable to open the wine bottle…took the order,sent the appetizer and then when we asked about dinner…she replied the kitchen busy and went to the computer to I believe put in the order and then after 20 minutes the food came…the the best presentation as other times and the chicken parmigiana was tough….very ,very unsatisfactory in my standards and shameful for grotto …

We wanted something for dinner and I have been to Grottos many times. We ordered oven baked Margarita pizza which I simply think is the best. The pizza didn't disappoint, it was delicious. We also ordered an antipasto which had a large variety of cheeses, Italian meats, olives, roasted tomatoes and artichokes. It was excellent. The staff is friendly and explains the days specials. I will definitely dine there again and again

Good food. Simple menu. Fine service. Only downside is that the restaurant is I. The middle of the casino, adding some ambient noise that may bother some.

Mediocre food quality and it was cold. Mystery meat meatballs! Waiter’s demeanor went south when we asked to change tables due to the arctic blast of the AC coming right down on us. Limited menu. Ambiance was nice but overall we weren’t impressed.

The Grotto is our favorite restaurant. We dined for our 25th wedding anniversary. I am a gastric sleeve patient and can only eat 8oz every 60 minutes. I arrived and notified them of this and that we would probably be there 3 hours. The waitress Maryann went above and beyond. Our appetizer came and exactly 60 minutes later our meal arrived. Our glasses never reached empty before a new drink arrived. Then after dinner we relaxed and 60 minutes later a dessert arrived on the house for our anniversary. The food here is fantastic. The service is top notch. It’s our favorite restaurant for a reason. We are not worthy!! Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!!

I picked this restaurant because reviews seemed to be great. We were sat on time. We ordered right away when the waiter came over. Our appetizer came within 10 minutes but our food took another hour to come out!!!! When it did, my steak was over cooked. I ordered mr but it was medium and mw. I told the waiter that it was overcooked but I wasn't going to wait for another steak, so I guess I'd eat it. After a few more bites I decided I didnt want to spend all that money for a steak that I was forcing myself to eat. I ordered pasta with my meal so I would just eat that. I saw him tell the manager, she never came over. She even stood in front of my table at one point for at least 2 minutes talking to another waitress. By the time the waiter came back over, my husband was done with his meal (which was delicious), and asked us if we wanted a complimentary dessert. I told him that I'd changed my mind and they could take the steak off of the check, but to charge me for the side of pasta. Us waiting an hour for food and having it come out wrong was bad but the fact that the manager never came to our table, even though she passed plenty of times, and clearly saw our dissatisfaction, is unacceptable.

We had a great time at Grotto on a Friday night. Sadly, you can not go earlier than your reservations, but other than that we had a great night. We split two dinners. We got the the margarita pizza and the bolognese dinner. The spaghetti was better but both were a great size for the price. Our waiter was very nice too…splitting the spaghetti in the back and bringing out two dishes.

service was great, love the casino atmosphere but the food was disappointing. i had the veal marsala style and he veal was drenched with marsala wine sauce,too much marsala could not taste anything except the marsala wine. the veal was tough and fatty, not at all worth the 36$ or so price. i was also going there since they are of the few who serve peroni beer on tap and the tap was broken. seemed like more people were there having pizza than any entree and i could see why. in the past i only went to happy hour there and that will be the future. i can still the over used marsala wine in that awful dish. thw spaghetti was good, pomodoro style but that was the only good thing. also the wine pour? 18$ for a glass of santa margh , christ the pour was ridiculous
