  • "We went there for my birthday and I had requested a table with a front row view if the park, but they sat us at the very last table along the line so only half of our party actually had the view. There were plenty of open tables when we arrived so I'm not sure why they didn't give us a better one. Service was very good, no attitudes. Apps were very tasty, shrimp and grits, pork chops had good reviews. Filet was a little tough. Dessert was also a winner. Good bartender, try the vanilla and pineapple vodka specialty drink! "

  • "Most restaurants just offer salads as a side dish or appetizer. But The Grove has some pretty good entrée salads that easily work as a complete meal. I had a shrimp and crab salad that had just enough Serrano Chile oil in it to make the field greens exciting. The chicory and cilantro complimented the over all taste. The crab is the real thing, no imitation here. It looked great and tasted fresh. My guest had the Wood Grilled Salmon Salad and told me that the salmon was cooked exactly the way she wanted. That salad alone was enough for her. Service was great with the waiter giving us plenty of room to hold a conversation without being interrupted."

  • "I have eaten at The Grove before and every once in a while they have these off-the-menu specials. One price get you an appetizer, entre and sides, and a dessert. The off-the-menu items are always unique creations that I have not seen at any other places. I would like to see The Grove offer these items more often."

  • "Restaurant was more style than substance. Windows were nice, but the view was not as good as advertised. Was hoping to see the rooftop garden, but they said it was closed to the public. Food took an excessively long time to get to our table after ordering. Waiter had a lack of experience and got my order wrong. We went for Sunday Brunch and I ordered eggs over-easy. They were delivered to me sunny-side up. When asked if everything was alright by our waiter, I accepted the eggs as-is (didn't want to be mean and send them back), but politely mentioned to him that they weren't correct. When I told the waiter I ordered over-easy, he firmly believed that sunny-side up was the same thing. A pleasant place, but not worth the price."

  • "I have been here before and The Grove did not disappoint. I had the salmon which is always excellant and served the exact way I wanted it grilled. The service is very good. For a scenic downtown business lunch setting, you can't do better than this."

  • "The food and service are fine here, but what makes the Grove exceptional is the fact that you can enjoy a view of downtown Houston as if you were dining outdoors, while you are sitting in a very open climate controlled dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows."

  • "The food is usually pretty good here. We sat at a table next to a window so the view was great. Even though the place was packed the noise level was pretty good. This was a plus since it was a business meeting."

  • "I'd been to this place several times for happy hour & special events. The appetizers were always amazing so I assumed the regular menu would be as well. I had the chicken enchiladas & my boyfriend had the chicken sandwich. The chicken & tortillas for the enchiladas were as expected but the sauce was awful & overpowering. I sampled the chicken sandwich & the chicken was really dry."

  • "I had the good fortune to find this outstanding restaurant for a dinner meeting. The food was very good as was the service. We had a little glitch in table location initially but the manager was very accommodating. I highly recommend The Grove and will definitely return."

  • "Service was slow. I ordered a appetizer that never came. waiter never even apologized are mentioned that he missed the appetizer. The all he tuna was old and not very good. We order to stay that was so overdone that no one could get it. The waiter never even asked if we enjoyed the food or not. Will never return."

  • "I have been to this restaurant before and it has been excellant every time, except this visit. I had the red snapper and it wasn't very good. The other people I was eating with were not impressed with the food either. Our waiter was not very attentive. We had to wait a long time to order and then he didn't know what the specials were. When it was time to pay, our waiter was never around. After he finally gave me the bill, it took forever for our waiter to pick up my credit card and the other waiters wouldn't take our bill because it wasn't their table. It was frustrating because I could see our waiter talking to people at the bar."

  • "This restaurant has an amazing view of Discovery Green. Our server, Rick, made great recommendations. We ordered the cheese and toast tray. It was delicious and paired nicely with the wine. For dinner, we ordered the rotisserie chicken, the snapper, caesar salad and the arugula salad. All of them were really good, but I would recommend the arugula over the caesar. I gave the food 4 out of 5 stars because they were all delicious but nothing 5 star worthy. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant for its vibe and great views."

  • "I was looking for a nice restaurant for my wedding anniversary dinner, and came across the Grove on my web search. Reservations were easy to make online, convenient valet service, romantic and intimate atmosphere, outstanding service and excellent food. I was even a little surprised by the decent pricing on the food. I will definitely be returning, and even look forward to using the Grove for business meetings in the future."

  • "We made reservations for 4 for Sunday Brunch. We arrived on time and were promptly seated. The atmosphere is nice with tall ceilings, and large open windows looking out onto the park. The facility showed signs of wear in places, but was clean and fairly well maintained. The brunch menu had a nice selection and was presented well. Our food was good, with bits of original flair, but is NOT something I would consider to be "Fit for Foodies". We enjoyed our food, but it was simply good, not great. Our waiter was friendly and energetic, but was ill prepared for anything that was different than the standard menu fare. He had to go ask someone else any of the questions we asked. He also had no clue what it meant to be unobtrusive."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food was great! The service sucked. We had to ask multiple times for drinks. I never really knew who our server was. I had to scream across the small table to hold a conversation so a romantic date was out of the question. The manager stood there surveying the room like a king but did nothing. I've dined all over the world at all different types of restaurants and have never been so disappointed in the absolute lack of service. The food and the LEED certified building made up for some of the service issues but I wouldn't go back."

  • "Great for eating before a big event at ToyotaCenter (i.e The Eagles concert)... Packed at 5:30! Food was really good. Loved the blueberry marscaone cheesecake!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "After hearing great things about this place, I decided to give it a shot. I thought that the food was very well executed. The only negative comment I would make it that the plating was a little boring. The server was attentive when we needed something but at times we felt rushed, where we would want to enjoy our meal and converse, he seemed to be looking at turning the table over and move on to the next customers. The atmosphere inside and outside the restaurant was great though. It wasn't too noisy so you could have a conversation but not so quiet that it was awkward inside. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone wanting to try something new."

  • "The Grove view was great. The food was very good. There wasn't anything that stood out to me as extraordinary about The Grove. But one thing that stands out about The Grove is the view. Yes the views are very nice. We went there for dinner so it was kinda dark outside. But the interior lighting and ambiance was beautiful. The dining experience was overall very enjoyable. Me and my wife had a very well prepared dinner and very good service. I would eat here again and I would recommend it to friends to experience or even invite some friends out for a nice dinner here. Thumbs up!"

  • "Beautiful restaurant and good food. Too many babies and kids the night we were there as we were seated by a big group with 4 toddlers and several babies. Not restaurants fault but not the valentine feel I had hoped. We will come back again after the construction is completed and there is a view again."

  • "My wife and I went there for Valentine's Day and we had to choose from the special menu which didn't leave a lot of choices. The food I chose was very good however my wife thought that her food was just ok. The scenery and atmosphere was very nice. I would definitely come back here to checkout the full menu. I imagine they'll have plenty other great tasting foods."

  • "Took my date for a late V-Day dinner knowing nothing about the restaurant going in. Loved the location, size and classiness of the place. There was a special menu so choices were limited but they were more than acceptable. The food was absolutely fantastic across the board. My only negatives are that I would have preferred a little more intimate dining environment and a little more attentiveness by the server considering the caliber of the restaurant. It was also slightly noisy but not unacceptable. Price was a little high but not unexpected, all things considered."

  • "If you make a reservation you shouldn't have to wait to be seated. You should be seated before any walk in. The food was phenomenal. I just would request more quail on appetizer plate. The server shouldn't be stereotypical. He assume a lot and that was rather disturbing. I for a bottle of wine and he didn't ask other guest if they wanted something to drink. He gave us steak without a knife to cut it with. And the valet shouldn't lose other peoples car. They didn't lose mine but the other man was pretty furious. But he had a great night."

  • "This is probably the best restaurant i have ever been to. The interior is simply unique and beautiful.The atmosphere is quite perfect. the service was the best experience i ever had. Having a thick asian accent, i often get the funny look and unfriendly attitude from waiters at other restaurants. The 2 waiters who served us were very nice, gentle, friendly and patient with me. they always check on us to see if we need anything.just about anytime we need something they would be there, eagerly take our request and provide what we need right away, and always with a friendly smile on their faces. the food were perfect. They exceed what we expected. It would take a long review but the main point is we definitely will come back here many times."

  • "I have been here for lunch before, but this was the first time I saw a lunch special that included salad, entree, and dessert. The salad was excellant and not something I had before. It was heavy on the swiss chard, but the the dressing was good. The salmon was served exactly the way I ordered it, medium rare. The choclolate cake for dessert was a nice touch."

  • "absolutely beautiful. The service was excellent. The waitress wasn't familiar with the menu and she brought me couscous with duck liver after I clearly told her I didn't eat any meat (bad move). She made up for it by giving us a desert. I Shall return :)"
