    As always very good but I would have liked to have a basket of various breads/crackers before our meal. I realize you want to sell appetizers but you could do an appetizer with various breads and maybe dipping oils. Just a suggestion.

    Such a lovely restaurant and the food and service was wonderful. Unfortunately we were seated next to 2 larger parties on the indoor porch and the noise level made it hard to have a conversation. Definitely plan to go back with a better table location.

    We could tell right away the servers were overwhelmed. Too many people and not enough servers. My wife had to ask several times for the salt and pepper which was not on the table. The club soda was flat both in my cocktail and my wife's Coca Cola. The managers on duty were very friendly and helpful in getting the club soda issue straightened out. The young man that was waiting on us was extremely helpful, but he was total overwhelmed as much of the rest of the staff was due to the shortage of staff workers. I worked in high in restaurants when I was young, back in the 70's but we had cocktail waitress that handled the bar the other servers were responsible for the food and other issues with the patrons. Just a suggestion. We will be coming back because the food was particularly good. I completely understand that it is hard to find qualified workers these days that care about what they do and make a good effort. Just the same, our experience was good. Thank you. Yours truly, Terry D. Horton.

    In the last few years, food at the grove has been somewhat hit or miss. However, in the last several months, it has been consistently very good to excellent every time I’ve gone. Whatever they’re doing, they should keep doing it.

    The Grove never disappoints. Nothing else in Tyler comes close. Everything we’ve ever ordered here has been one of the best meals we’ve ever had. On our last trip, she ordered the sea bass and I ordered the steak & cake. Perfect portions and revelatory flavors. The drinks are also heavenly. The live music is high-quality and enjoyable when seated on the patio, and the atmosphere is high-end casual. We love The Grove and will continue going, and spreading the good words, as long as we live in Tyler.

    We have now had brunch and dinner there it is lovely! was live music for dinner and we sat on the enclosed patio it might have been quieter inside of the restaurant hence my noise rating. Our customer service, the weight staff and the food both times were top notch! Loved our brunch and dinner.

    Birthday dinner for my wife. We were promptly seated and our waitress was at our table in seconds. For our entire experience she was informative, pleasant and attentive. The ONLY knock I had was that there were quite a few people outside dining and it began to rain. The dining area filled to capacity and the background noise level became intrusive to the point my wife and I could not hear each other speak in a normal voice sitting right next to each other. Once about three of the tables finished and exited it was still a lot louder than we would have preferred but we no longer had to speak in very raised voices. I realize this was a bit of a fluke and it certainly won’t stop us from going again. However, we will request to be seated in an area that the background noise isn’t extremely loud or can become that way.

    Wonderful meal at The Grove. We started out in the outside dining, which was a lovely space, but had to move inside due to an unexpected downpour. The Grove graciously managed the transition. Our server was magnificent. The food was scrumptious.

    Atmosphere was colorful! First time brunching at the Grove and we left with no complaints! My friend and I ordered the banana foster french toast, cucumber & watermelon salad, shrimp & grits and Crab Benedict’s paired with the Groves Bloody Mary and a few cocktails. The portions per plate was plenty, leaving some left overs. We wanted to try as much as our stomachs could take! Delicious! We’ll be back during our next road trip!

    Delicious food, beautiful outdoor and indoor eating space! Live music was great! The bar atmosphere has great vibes. One of my favorite places to hang it in Tyler! Building needs some care. The Women’s restroom needs touching up. Wallpaper is ripped off in some stalls, holes knocked in stall walls from doors opening into them. Locks say vacant when they aren’t. Small amount of sugar ants made their way to the bar… These things taken care of will make the place as great as it was a few years ago, if not better!

    The Grove is a nicely designed building and property, but the food is just average and the service is pretty awful - obviously inexperienced servers with little customer-facing training.

    I will definitely be back. However, I don't understand why we were seated right next to the kitchen when the room was practically empty. I was very distracting with the servers going in and out and the kitchen noise. Next time I will ask to be moved.

    I really enjoyed the atmosphere, our seating arrangement could've been better for a seating of 2, but the outside area and band were spectacular, and our server and waitress were helpful, maybe photographs of the meals your ordering will be helpful for those who have never ate there before.

    Food is over-rated. Had mini beef wellingtons which are normal good but mostly fat and tendon last night. Poblano soup is always good. Salmon was room temperature and didn’t taste like much of anything. White wine was room temperature. Every time I eat there I swear it’s my last time.

    Our server was fantastic as was the second server that helped us out with my steak. The potatoes were terrible, and cold. They forgot my beans and I had to wait for my beans. Then my steak, fillet, that was supposed to be medium was well done. They were more than happy to make me another steak however my date had to wait to eat and her meal got cold. So they had to make her another meal. The second steak and my dates second meal were both delicious. Just took forever. Very happy with the staff.
