A spur of the moment dinner decision with two of my friends brought us to the Grotto. We girls were looking for something other than our usual spots and this was a perfect find. We laid claim to a table with overstuffed club chairs in their comfortable bar and ordered the first round of cocktails. After unwinding for a while, with the help of our excellent waiter, Jared, we ordered the Steak Salerno appetizer and our first bottle of wine. Barely into or first glass of an excellent cabernet arrives a Big platter of beautifully cooked steak, thinly sliced with roasted cloves of garlic with a light sauce, we devoured it and wondered how we would be able to eat our meal. Next came garden salads and a huge bowl of creamy She Crab Soup; once again perfection. Entrees’ were difficult to choose. Two of us ordered the Tender & Crab, another perfectly cooked filet covered in crabmeat and a delicious creamy garlic sauce served with mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus for sides. The second entrée was Veal DiVincci, delicately cooked veal with a skewer of jumbo shrimp, again perfectly cooked and delicious. We were too stuffed for any dessert, which was a shame because I’m sure that would have been as delicious as everything else was. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the atmosphere, the staff, and of course the food. This place would make a great dinner date spot, girlfriend’s night out, special occasion, or for anyone that enjoys exceptional food. Moderately pricy, not sure that very small children would enjoy this place but it is at the top of my list of Special Places I will visit often.

From Business: Japon has the best of both worlds. Two favorites are served under one roof, steak and Japanese style cuisine. All the formal elegance of a Japanese style restaurant…
My husband and I absolutely love this place!! The food is always excellent and the service is world class. Great place for just a family dinner or you can rent one of their patios for a private event for no charge, they are very accommodating!
