This is the second time I have eaten brunch in the Grove and both times I’ve been disappointed with the food quality.

Won’t be going back as the noise level is off the charts and is so loud that you cannot have a conversation with your friends…we were 4 ladies trying to catch up with each other after not seeing each other for 2 months….it was horrible.

I was honestly expecting a 100$ bill for the class and elegance of The Grove. The food was top notch and the service was excellent. For all of the local hype I was worried about a let down but it lived up to the expectations. All for less than an IHOP trip. Definitely will be making this my main brunch spot

Made a reservation for my husband’s birthday. We are both foodies and recently moved to ETX from Dallas and have been looking for good places here in Tyler. First, I had a reservation for 7:15, we arrived promptly on time and were told by the hostess they were overbooked and we would have to wait a bit in the bar area. I was a bit frustrated, I don’t like waiting which is why I made the reservation but I assumed it wouldn’t be long. The bar was great ambiance, live music which was very good. Cocktails were good. We waited 45 minutes before our table was ready, we received a text from hostess and then when we arrive they still didn’t have a table prepared so we stood there waiting almost another 10 minutes, unacceptable. At this point we are starving, we immediately ordered an appetizer (calamari) which was fine but I have had way better. We put in our dinner orders right away, it took 45 minutes to get our food! We were both cranky and hungry at this point. Our food FINALLY arrives, my husband got scallops and I got the branzino which was the special. Neither entree was great, the branzino was fishy tasting and I left more than half of it on the plate even though I was still hungry. Neither of us were in the mood for dessert so we got the check and left. I would go back for the bar but that’s about it. Disappointed.

We dined outside and there was live music - thus my rating for “noise”. The entire place is stunning - but outdoors is even more so. Our server was exceptional and the food was top notch. Pricier than we usually spend but we’ll worth the price!

The only reason I did not rate food a 5 was because the chicken fried steak was very tough and hard to chew. Everything thing else was wonderful and our waitress was so sweet and attentive.

Made a reservation for two on New Year’s Eve. They tried to seat us at a giant table for 6 people. Food was very sub par for the price. Limited options, will not go for an event again.

Usually in OpenTable I put in the notes about a special occasion and they go out their way to make sure it’s special. This time since we were last table everything felt a little rushed but the place was great.

Extremely disappointed
I booked a month in advance because I was coming in from Austin on my birthday.
I noted on the reservation it was my birthday
reservations were for 7 PM arrived at 6:50 hostess said it would be a few minutes so we went to this beautiful bar area and had a drink they completely forgot about us and we were seated at 7:30 tables open everywhere they sat us right next to the kitchen the food was wonderful service was horrible

Ambience was marked 4 stars only because our table was near the patio door and the wait staff kept leaving the door open when servicing patio guests. When the door was standing open it would blow cold air directly at our table. Otherwise it would be 5 stars.

The building is beautiful and the service was excellent. I would imagine this place makes a perfect place for a holiday party or a wedding or a rehearsal dinner.

However the food was not up to the standards I would have expected for the price. For example, I had shrimp and it was not completely deveined. Not that I am too stuck up to devein shrimp myself before I eat it, it's just that if I'm paying $25 for a shrimp dish I would expect it to be deveined. Also the food came out so quickly after ordering that I felt rushed.

The restaurant was clean overall and nicely decorated. The bathrooms looked like they had recently had fixtures removed from the walls and the holes were stuffed with toilet paper. I was kind of surprised by this because it seems like such a simple fix that someone could repair that hole in the wall in a day or two, or at least cover them up with a wall decoration or something. Just leaving the hole exposed with toilet paper stuffed in it seemed like a careless choice.

Overall, I would eat here again but I would probably try other places in Tyler before I come back. But the building and the setting is so lovely that if someone were looking for a place to host a rehearsal dinner or a work event I would recommend it.

What a weird experience. Upon arrival, it took the hosts several minutes and intense discussion where to seat us. We follow the hostess into a large room, empty, except for a loud table of partying. Seated right next to them. Nice.
Ordered the East Texas breakfast - 2 eggs over medium, bacon, potatoes, toast. Toast arrived unbuttered. No butter on the table. Eggs were literally disgusting. Ordered over medium. I want to know how in the WORLD the cook managed to cook the yolks hard and the whites uncooked with slime. I almost went back to the kitchen to offer the cooks a free lesson in over medium eggs. Breakfast arrived on a huge plate but the amount of potatoes was about 1/2 of a cup.
Hard pass.

It was the perfect date night for my husband and I! Delicious food, the PERFECT cappuccino and the sweetheart in the bar made me the best mocktail EVER when she heard we don't drink. We watched live music and sipped on that, rounding out a great experience. Our beautiful waitress was attentive, patient and knowledgeable about the menu. The manager checked in us during our meal which we greatly appreciated.
