The eggs benedict was good. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the dish was served warm. The other 2 standard breakfasts (eggs, toast, potatoes and bacon) were served cold. The 'scrambled' eggs were just a slab of cold eggs and not much worse than being served cold eggs.

Overall I like your place a lot but I was celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday and our waitress was very rude. I send you a request a week before this event I was expecting more about your place

The Grove used to be our go to place for eating in Cedar Park. I've posted great reviews for the Grove, but the last 2 times we have been to the Grove it hasn't been great. We were there for dinner on Sunday night. Waitress was friendly, we've had her before. I ordered a bottle of wine and my husband ordered a glass of wine. We were sitting near the sliding glass door. One of the staff needed to get something from outside and opened the door and left them open while she got what she needed. It was really cold outside and all the cold air came in the restaurant. Our appetizer was brought out by someone other than our waitress. Put the shrimp on the table and walked off. We had no plates for the appetizer so we had to get our waitress's attention to get plates. Meal arrived, we both had spaghetti and meatballs. We usually look forward to the focaccia garlic bread, but it was soggy and flavorless. The sauce for the spaghetti was watery. My husband finished his glass of wine and wanted another but the waitress never came by to ask. We had to flag her down. She apologized about the wait. This is the second time we have dined here and had to ask for more wine. You shouldn't run out of wine at a wine restaurant :) Ordered a coffee after dinner, which took a long time to get. These may seem like small things, but when you add them up it makes for a not so great dining experience. For $132 the service should be better.

Dinner on the way home from work with a colleague. Ordered the shrimp bisque which had no taste and a little on the watery side. My friend also said his venison chili was boring.

I had the Halibut which was outstanding. Our waiter was a good guy and took good care of us. I would eat here again but will skip the bisque.

We tried two wine flights, the bruschetta appetizer, and two different pasta entrees. It was all very good. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Pacing of courses was good. The flights were nice selections and the food was delicious. Had a great time.

It was a late Saturday night.They were sweet: waiter and bartender! They let us enjoy a course with a drink and take a break to visit on the patio. Kitchen and bar did an outstanding job. My date and I were very happy. Highlights: good pours, okra, mussels, beet salad, scallops.

Service was great, food was good and very much appreciated moderation of acoustics. One minor note: Their website would only allow reservation request for six, so I put in a note that I needed a table for seven, but apparently the note wasn't seen, so we initially had a table for six, but they took care of it immediately. Could have used one more table as it was slightly crowded, but okay overall.

I have been here quite a bit before a while back, but it seemed as if things changed. My meal had more vegetables than meat. To me the percentage of meat versus the vegetable ratio wasn’t adequate.

Visiting any restaurant with a broken dominant hand is difficult, so I applaud our waitress and the kitchen chefs for being very thoughtful in the preparation of my meal. It was such a lovely gesture, to be sure my tenderloin was cut into bite-size pieces...and man, was it prepared perfect! The wines were also quite delicious, and the staff were real troopers coming out during the rains ahead of the cold front to keep up with our wants and needs. Fantastic, all around!

I’m always about a wonderful outdoor atmosphere when I go out. The Grove has a very relaxing and well designed outdoor seated area that created an enjoyable experience. Our waiter was very personable and he gave us a wonderful wine suggestion to go alone with our appetizers.

They were great about recommending a drink for my daughters 21st birthday. Service was excellent and very quiet and comfortable restaurant. We loved the Brussels sprouts! A little more expensive than we hoped but great for a special occasion.

The Redfish is truly the most underrated item their menu! It was a huge portion that was cooked & seasoned perfectly, and surprisingly better than the Redfish at Salt Traders! We had a lovely date night and great service from our server, Slater. Looking forward to returning soon.

The salad itself was $9 and then I added protein and it was the same price as the salad. Which seems a little ridiculous and it’s not like I got that much. I’m on keto diet so it limits me to what I can eat. It was 4 tiny pieces of steak. I will think again before coming back.

Reed Salad is usually my favorite but this time was just ok. Very little cheese and even fewer nuts. Added avocado for. Additional cost. This was barely more than a greens salad. Disappointing.

The food was great. Our waiter was polite, courteous, Texas-friendly and very helpful. I'd recommend the restaurant based on food and service. The caveat:
The downside is the table for two was too small, allowing the restaurant to position tables too closely together. That meant it was difficult to have a quiet, personal conversation with anyone in my party, over a fairly noisy crowd. Overall, a taxing experience
