    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.

    Food was good, Restaurant was very nice and modern, however the waitress forgot our salads and that just ruined a good meal. Didn't seem to phase here and I should have known when she didn't write down the order. More times than not the memory never comes out right

    While we love the setting that the grove gives a diner, we expected so much more for it evening diner experience. We have only gone to the brunch before. Our brunch experience has always been good with a good selection and good value. Our dinner experience not so much. It is somewhat pricey and you expect more for the prices they charge for entrées. However, it was my husband‘s birthday and we wanted to really have a nice evening out. We ordered the individual beef Wellington‘s and $31 and they were good but not great. Let flavor and dad. We ordered the kale Caesar salad. It tasted like dirt and neither of us could eat it. We also ordered the burger thinking that it would be a great burger but it was not. There was very little flavor and it was extremely undercooked. The fries were cold and tasted as though they had been sitting out for hours. I don’t usually spend this much time on a review but it was so disappointing in Tyler needs a more fine dining experience than golfers. The grove could be that place. It has all the possibilities but the food was definitely lack luster and at worst terrible. The waiter was great and he was obviously embarrassed by the food himself. The manager came to the table to apologize for the salad but after that we didn’t try anymore to get any resolve. The waiter got the result for us by taking the burger off of our bill. I know this probably will never make a difference but I wish that it would. We love the grove him with love to see it be what it should be Also, the lobster bisque was supposed to be spicy but it was so spicy and that it was almost impossible to eat.

    Had a wonderful, healthy potion steak prepared as requested with wonderful Brussel sprouts, substituted, and asparagus. A bit surprising only three stalks. Ended with a tasty apple cheesecake! Bill was $80ish with a drink, G&T- Hedricks.

    We had the Steak and Cake and it was delicious! The steak was so tender, I didn’t need a steak knife and the crab cake was perfection. We also had the apple cheesecake. Oh my, amazing! We visit California quite a bit and the food at The Grove is as good as any of the fine dining dishes we have experienced there! We also had wonderful service. Thank you, Kaylin! We will be back for sure!

    Sunday brunch. I had Mexican Cobb stack with crab cake, which was beautiful and also tasted great. My wife had The Homestead salad with chicken which was great. Ambience and setting are amazing. Service spotty. It took the waiter 10 minutes to find sweetener for my iced tea. After brunch outside we went into the bar for coffee. The bar is beautiful and the service was great.

    Difficulty making reservations. I reserved an inside table but the hostess did not know this and couldn’t seem to find our reservation. Noisy. Two of the orders were cold as if taken out of the the refrigerator and not heated.(One was eggs and they were very cold not even room temp). No bread or crackers were offered. (Two of us ordered soup). The shrimp tasted tough and again not heated. Grits were very dry not creamy. Salads were acceptable but any cooked food was cool to lukewarm. We have been here before and loved it but this experience was negative. The manager gave us a credit for one of the meals and was apologetic. . Overall I would not recommend. This was an anniversary celebration and we were so disappointed.

    Made a reservation 5 days in advance because I had clients from out of town visiting and for business dinner The Grove is normally a good option. I’ve eaten or had drinks here more than 40 times in the last few years. However it took us 20 minutes to be seated by a very inept hostess and our server never showed up so after another 30 minutes of waiting we left. Went downtown and had a lovely dinner elsewhere. I understand places are short staffed but when that is the case they should manage reservations and not take walk-ins…. Will go back to the Grove for casual stuff but never for a business or formal dinner occasion.

    The service was exceptional! The food was amazing! We appreciated the ambiance - there was soft jazz music playing along with songs by artists like Frank Sinatra. The decoration is quirky, unique and also very sophisticated. I love the outdoor dining area and the green space to play games with family and friends. We love The Grove!

    The grove has wonderful food - I love everything I’ve tried but the main dining area is LOUD. I can only hope someday they consider adding some acoustic tiles. My wife doesn’t want to go back because of it even though she admits the food is great.

    Multiple sections for seating. We were in wine room which seemed more like an overfill room vs. a main dining area. It was fine but not a "wow". Service and food were excellent.

    Our server was excellent. When our food arrived, a different server brought it and as he was setting the tray on a nearby table, he miss calculated and all 4 of our dinners crashed to the floor. I expected someone to come by and discuss that there would be a delay while they prepared our meals again, but nothing. Eventually, our server came by and I asked about our meals. He wasn't aware of the accident. At this point I expected some kind of apology for the delay, even some kind of comp. Again, nothing. When the second set of meals arrived, one of our dinners was barely warm. He asked for it to be warmed, and our server took it back to the kitchen, but it returned no warmer than it left the table. For the most part, the food, drinks and service was great, but the delay due to the accident should have been addressed by a place like this, not ignored. I will give The Grove another try, in the hope this is not typical performance.
