Could someone please explain the grotto for me? I tried to do the dinner reservation... But the CM made it sound as if the tickets included were for the general area where the people with the picnics go... Clarification oh wise mwers? - SteamboatMinnie   310.6 #979 12-14-11 10:09AM Like  Reply
We always eat there and your section is up front, in the center. You can go down and be in front of the rail by the water or back a little from the wet zone. It is an awesome area and worth the money you pay for dinner. - PrincessAuroraMomma   603.0 #398 12-14-11 10:31AM Like  Reply

Hey there- Just got done with this dinner and a show at Arieals grotto a few weeks ago. They have one section consider to be preferred dinning section. The view was amazing. It really i front and center amazing spot. Not trying to rain and parades and please someone let me know if they feel different but if you can and budget allow try ti change to dinner and a show through the winery... I was VERY unsatisfied with the service I received at the Grotto. The rolls were ROCK hard, our server was never arrowed, never got a soda refill, never was asked how to food was ( was coldish), and appetizer that came with the mean was un-appetizing. I am not sure I really feel it was not worth the money. That is me not trying to be a negative nancy. I used to serve at a fine dinning restaurant and the service nor food was up to par IMO> Sorry not trying to be negative just trying to help that if you can change.... think about chaining it up.  Again sorry not trying to rain on anyone parade just trying to help. The seat for WOC make it well worth it tho :)

I can vouch for that as well. AG was probably the worst meal I've had anywhere on property (i.e. most of the food was lukewarm, salads were literally soggy). Would definitely suggest somewhere else. - scrambledegg81  171.9 #2540 12-14-11 10:40AM
Horrible service at the grotto!!! I do not recommend it. Definitely try the trattoria instead. View for WoC is awesome though!! - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #227 12-14-11 10:44AM
Aww is it bad that I am glad that I am not alone in my feelings about this. I just felt that it was not worth the 95$ after tip for what I got. I rather of gotten and turkey leg and fast passes lol. But it was for my moms bday so I wanted to take her somewhere nice. I also felt that the desert plater was really pretty but OVERWHELMING in sugar. We barley touched it :( - BooEve123  800.9 #282 12-14-11 10:49AM
Wow that bad huh, well thanks for the honesty..MWers know best hehe :). I was kinda doubting about eating there, but my boyfriend wants to try it out. Now I am going to tell him to cancel and try to reserve at the winery. After reading a few of your responses..I definitely don't want to spend money on bad service/food. Thanks again guys for the heads up! :) - LuvsMimisHouse  515.8 #476 12-14-11 11:00AM
Haven't done the grotto but I can vouch that the trattoria is amazing! Great food and great service! - TangledBelle  24.8 #7211 12-14-11 11:09AM
I love Ariel's grotto for the princess lunch, Food is mediocre but worth it for mads having princess time, but for dinner I agree with folks on going the trattoria route instead, their food is really good and you still get the fastpasses. - madsdad  1868.2 #110 12-14-11 11:31AM
