Great service, friendly staff, perfect for romantic dates 2/24/2009

My boyfriend made reservations here for Valentines Day. If it's a special holiday be sure to make reservations as he called a week in advance and there were only two times available - 5:30PM and 9:00PM so we took the 5:30. You can choose between valet parking or the free parking lot directly beside the hotel. We were seated immediately as there were not many people there by the time we arrived, but within 30 minutes every seat was filled. The staff pulls out your chair for you and even though there was not an empty seat in the place, the service was incredible. It was almost like there was a waiter for each table. The food is very authentic and even the wait staff had italian accents. For appetizers - the lobster bisque is decent and the portebellas exceeded my expectations as they were delicious. My entre was decent (the grouper), but it was not the best I've ever had. My boyfriends entre (the new york strip) was incredible and highly recommended. As for the atmosphere - extremely romantic - after our meal we took a walk through the outdoor paths that are lined with lights and waterfalls (this is your view during the meal). Upon leaving, they adorned each girl with a single rose as it was Valentines Day. Don't expect to leave without paying over $100 for two people, but for the special occation, it was perfect. Pros: Excellent Service, Ambience, Romantic atmosphere more

Excellent entrees 1/24/2009

This restaurant, located in the Crowne Plaza, is definitely worth a stop on any fine dining itinerary. My sister and I visited for lunch and when we got to the entrees, I could completely understand the AAA four diamond rating. Pros: entrees Cons: bread service more

I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant 8/7/2008

I read some of the previous reviews and was a bit skeptical to go, but ended up here one night with a large business dinner of about 45 guests. I have to say that I was impressed--enough so, in fact, to come back again a few weeks later with my wife and some friends for dinner and experienced what amounted to a phenomenal dinner, service and all. Hint: there is a cool walking garden out behind the Ravinia complex good for a late night romantic stroll after dinner. Pros: food, service, gardens, waterfalls Cons: decor a wee bit dated more

Good food 12/20/2007

I like La Grotta. The food is great. However, the restaurant on Peachtree is definitely more formal. The wait staff there is at the top of their game. In contrast, the staff at the Perimeter (Ravinia) location are less polished. If you are going to pay the same price, and you would like a more polished experience, go to the Peachtree restaurant. Pros: Food is good Cons: Waitstaff and Setting is acceptable but not as nice as the Peachtree location more

Caution!!!! Avoid at all COST!!! 12/31/2006

We were celebrating new year's eve at this location. We are regulars at the peachtree location and we were going to try this location for a change. What a big mistake. Except the name, nothing is same. I had crab cake as an appetizer and it was burnt outside and uncooked inside. The veal was so tough my steak knife couldn't cut through it. We had pinot grigio with our food and it was so old, it was flat!!! Worst of all, there were fruit flies flying over our bread basket. What a horror!!! Service was no where to be found. If you want to have a good dining experience go to La Grotta on Peachtree, but avoid going to Ravinia. You will be wasting your money. Pros: location Cons: food, service, drink, sanitation more

Great Food, Poor Service 4/25/2003

We went to Dunwoody location last night to celebrate our anniversary. Food was excellent, but the service was certainly the slowest/non-attentive I've experienced in any restaurant. Ten to fifteen minutes passed after seating before anyone approached us. Our waiter finally took our order, but then proceeded to have lengthy discussions (10-15 minutes) with other tables about the menu and their orders before submitting our choices to the kitchen. The third table he visited during order taking had almost finished their meals before ours arrived. It took 30 minutes after initial pouring to get our wine glasses refilled. The only service that happened in a timely fashion was the refilling of our water glasses. We're going to try the Buckhead location next time in hope of a better experience. I'd give the food a ""10"" rating, but the service deserves a ""2"". Pros: Food Cons: Service more
