“Not that great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

The food was overpriced for the quality but then I guess seafood sources are pretty far away. Service was good.

“Worst service ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

The bartenders are the rudest I have ever encountered. Spend your money elsewhere. I could not get anyone to assist me. I asked for the manager who was very nice but I would caution everyone to stay away.

“Birthday Dinner with Friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We had planned on spending the evening around the Freemont Experience - so looked on TA for some suggestions in the area.

We decided that the Grotto - located in the Golden Nugget would fit the bill. Made a reservation through Open Table for our desired time. We arrived and were seated quickly.

Our server was attentive and the food was delicious. We had 2 bottles of wine, 2 appetizers, 3 entrees & 2 desserts for around $170 before tip - which I think is quite reasonable for a special meal.

My one complaint was that as the server was clearing dishes - he reached across one of our guests to pull a dirty plate from the guest seated next to her. Major mistake in service - especially fine dining.

Overall - it was a fun evening and we would go back to The Grotto!
