My entree came without eggs on top like it was supposed to. I ordered a mimosa and was brought something completely different. Waitress barely came to check on us so I would have to go find her when something was wrong. Nothing was comped off of the bill either. Very disappointing meal.

Our meals did not come out at the same time (one 10 min after everyone else) and one was not made correctly. Most of the food was dry and not very hot. Service was still great…We know it was not the waiters fault. I have been here once before and was very impressed. I will be back, I just will not be back for a holiday meal.

The menu was really lacking and didn't even have an Omelet or anything like that for breakfast. I ordered scrambled eggs and they came hard fried and pancakes were cold not even warm. We just sucked it up and dealt with it. Don't believe we will be going back for brunch again.

The place was full, 45-minute wait without reservations. I highly recommend using Opentable if you know you’re going a day or two in advance. Second time we’ve been here. Outside & inside. Gotta say, though, best churros ever!!!

Our waitress, Taron, was personable and took good care of us. We had a great time. However, I was surprised no one atleast acknowledged it was our 34th wedding anniversary, which I mentioned when I made the reservation on Open Table.

It's got a nice, modern, relaxed vibe and the service is always great even on a busy weekend like Mom's weekend. The food is very yummy! Only complaint: Big Grove you haven't changed your menu in about 2 years! Time for some new dishes for people like me who visit you regularly.

Only negative was I had made a reservation and when we were seated, they sat us in the corner right next to the kitchen and bathroom entrance. The restaurant was practically empty when we arrived and there were plenty of areas to sit.

I expected to be very pleased as I was a couple of years ago. Nothing exceptional. Nothing very warm for that matter. I had a Mexican dish but I could have gotten the same quality at El Toro for less. You could do better. You are no longer special to me.
