  • "We went for a Birthday dinner between a few friends and we had a wonderful time. The food was amazing and all 6 of us loved our entrees. This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions and we have a great experience every time we go. The service was amazing and there is always the added bonus of having fun in the casino after dinner."

  • "This is not the Grove Steak House we have gone to for years. Now that remodeling is complete, the atmosphere is a combination of Aquatic (blue mosaic tiles on columns w/aqua seat back cushions; Alice in Wonderland with black/white diamond booth back cushions and white pearlized vinyl seats and Russian Ice Bar with stark white decor/trees in the center. With so many hard surfaces, it was overly loud and not what one would associate with a "Steak House". The chef tried to mimic the Chicken Mediterrano (no longer on the menu) which we appreciate. Unfortunately we were told later he has never seen or made it before which was apparent in the taste. Food - '0', Ambiance '0', service '10'. Don't waste your money....not worth the cost!"

  • "the Lobster grilled cheese was not good to me. it needed more cheese. I like the variety of bread and the soups tasted good and the salad was good as well. the chicken pesto sandwich had a sweet chutney or jelly and that was not good. i would try it again, but i think dinner may be better. we went for lunch. i was disappointed truthfully"

  • "We have an annual get together with good friends in between the week of the Over The Line Tournament. The Grove has been our choice for many years now. Your private room is exactly what our group needs, since we get a little noisy! Kathy has been our hostess for several years now and we love her. As usual, the wine, cocktails and food was outstanding. Keep up the great work! Thank you again, Dawn Peyton"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 43 wedding anniversary dinner at the Grove. Our waiter was very nice and attentive to all our needs, as was the hostess who sat us. Everyone was extremely nice. We started off with a lovely bread basket, with many different breads to try. It came with a olive bread, that when dipped in the melted butter, was to die for. We ordered steak and lobster, with loaded baked potato, and salad to start. Their blue cheese dressing was extremely good, best we have had for a long time. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and had a wonderful flavor, but the star of the night was the lobster. It was so tender and sweet, absolutely delicious, we will be back."

  • "The food was delicious, but we were overall disappointed. We used to frequent The Grove 5+ years ago, so we wanted to order our favorites. The calamari is no doubt the best in town, but now the portion is half of what it used to be. The prime rib was delicous as before, but came out cold...both or our prime ribs. The wait was a bit long for our main course, so we were too hungry to send it back."

  • "We love & appreciate good food & flavor. most restaurants we always have to season our food. Here everything was spot on In flavor. Caesar salad & mushroom ravioli were delicious as appetizers. The Seabass & Shrimp special with vegetable Ratatouille was out of this world. The Filet Mignon, melted in our mouths."

  • "My dining experience at the Grove Steakhouse inside Viejas was great! The 10 oz. prime rib was excellent. Prepared perfectly, to MedRare as I'd requested. The service was also very good. Overall great experience!"

  • "This was my husband's birthday dinner. We ordered lobster and was it good! They have changed the kind of lobster they use; it is Tristan lobster, Australian, and it is twice the size of the usual lobsters. They boil then grill it and it is very tasty. Saul was our server, and as usual, very genial, excellent service, and thoughtful."

  • "My husband I recently had dinner at the Grove. 20-25 minutes for our salads, followed by two porterhouse steaks (requested medium rare-came medium at best), "loaded"baked potato (tasted liked it was pre-made/cooked, then microwaved). After paying bill, 15-20 minutes passed. We couldn't leave fast enough! Do not plan on going back. "

  • "I enjoy eating out and being taken care of, the staff was great but the food for the price was not Even comparable to blank angus. I expect more from such a wealthy organization. Or at least the price to reflect the quality"

  • "Our server Kathy, as always, was great, friendly, remembered our previous favorite drinks, food, and habits. The bus person was efficient, courteous, helped with take-out food. All their servers are excellent, i.e., Felix; although he was not our server this time around, he came by to greet us and make us feel welcome."

  • "We always experience a pleasant lunch or dinner when dining at the Grove. The quality of the food, the excellent service, sometimes provided by Cathy, and the quiet ambience have made this restaurant our very favorite place to eat near Alpine. Whenever we have a special occasion or friends dropping by the Grove is usually our choice."

  • "The Grove Steakhouse at Viejas Casino was good, but not great. The food was wonderful as was the service. What took away from the meal was the ambience. Maybe we expected too much, but the seating was open (meaning no privacy) unless you paid extra for a private dinning wiht the chef. For a the PREMIER restaurant of the casino, we expected more of an intimate setting. The food was very well prepared and the service was very good. "

  • "The staff were fast, friendly, very hospitable and provided outstanding service throughout our dining experience. While the food was a bit on the pricey side, the fact that it was delicious and perfectly prepared made it worth every penny we spent. As a retired Navy person (and an 18 year Army Brat before that) I have traveled the world/US extensively and eaten at many fine restaurants and can say that The Grove was unequivocally, in terms of service and quality of food, the finest dining I have experienced to date."

  • "We thoroughly enjoy our lunches at the Grove Steakhouse. Angie, the lunchtime waiter is at least half the reason why. She anticipates our needs, makes good recommendations and goes out of her way to make our dining experience very pleasurable."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The prime rib was very tough. I could hardly cut it with my steak knife and chewing it was impossible. I think I would have had a better prime rib at the free buffet, but I paid $30 for mine. The service was OK, the Cesar salad and wild mushrooms were great. I have eaten at this restaurant before and it has been getting worse as time has passed. I used to recommend this restaurant to everyone but today I would not recommend it to anyone."

  • "Our group had a great time, but the noise level was a bit high from two tables away. We could not hear ourselves talking until they left. The food was excellent and we are definitely coming back."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I had the Lobster, even the lobster was excellent, I was a little disappointed that all that came with the meal was a salad and bread. I think $55 should have covered the side and possibly a dessert. My husband had steak and 1/2 lobster and the we paid extra as well for the side. We love coming to Viejas and my husband and I wanted a special dinner. Kind of felt we paid too much for what we got."

  • "They remodeled the restruant, so they now have a private party room. BAD call, the party there on V-Day was so loud. If it wasn't for the fact we had ordered our food I would have left. They need to control the noise level, it's not Chuckey Cheese."

  • "We were given gift cards for this restaurant. I was a little hesitant after reading the other reviews. But, I enjoyed the whole dinner, from the corn chowder soup to the salmon entrea to the dessert I sharerd with my husband. The service was excellent. The waiter even told us how to save more money! What a delight! The noise level and ambiance was acceptable."
