Five of us stopped in for dinner last Thursday. Only one of us had been to Blue Grotto in the past. We ordered eight tapas items from the Thursday Special menu. We also ordered one additional item from the regular menu - Mama Meis Gyoza Pot. To absorb the soup (gravy) let then the gyoza was consumed, we asked for... More

A post movie first meal here was ok. We ordered a rainbow roll heavy on Salmon a special salad and some grilled shrimp with mango salsa. My wife had an inferior glass of Carmel road chardonnay and was later told by the manager that most guests do not like it! All of the food was good, portions adequate etc. Service... More

We went here on a Sunday evening after a movie just down the street. When we arrived (a little after 6), we felt that we had arranged for a private dining experience, but that changed about a half hour later when several other groups and couples came in. We had some problems of communication at first because our waitress seemingly... More

I've eaten here several time, and both times the dishes have been good, but not as tasty or pleasant an experience as other sushi or tapas restaurants in the area.

We know sushi and the quality is high here. Very fresh and cold. Excellent flavor. They need more servers on a Friday night. Try the Alaska roll.

Blue Grotto is a different kind of restaurant. You can sit on sofas to eat...not sure I'd want to. Plenty of tables as well. There is a mix of tapas and sushi which shouldn't work but it does. The food is really reasonably priced and is a very chill place to go for a dinner. Sadly they are not open... More

My wife is not a seafood or sushi eater, so she indulged me with this reservation. She had the chicken satay and a side salad. She raved about both. I conservatively had only cooked items--California Roll and their specialty Grotto Roll. The California role was superb, but I was disappointed in the Grotto roll. Despite its multiple ingredients, it seemed... More

Had dinner here the other night with my daughter since she and I are the only ones in our family who like sushi. We had several of the basics - California roll, Tuna roll, etc. Food was very good. Service was very attentive and pleasant. Enjoyable meal. Would definitely recommend.

Ate here a few months ago - three issues - the name is just completely confusing - sounds like an Italian restaurant, second, what is with the signage? And, three, it is next to a wildly successful Thai place. Blue Grotto needs to solve its identity crisis
