About The Grove Wine Bar and Kitchen Downtown

We only take a small number of reservations so that most of the restaurant is open for guests to walk in and be seated without a wait. If you find no reservations available please don't be discouraged we will likely have a table ready for you when you walk in the door. From the get-go, our goal has been to provide a casual place where Austinites and visitors could enjoy great wine and food. We hope our customers appreciate and enjoy what we do. It truly is a labor of love. A number of people, both current and former employees, have helped make The Grove what it is today. A restaurant can never rest on its laurels, especially in a place like Austin that has so many great dining options. We’re always trying to stay on top of our game and make things even better, and we never lose sight of the initial idea that wine and food are for everyone to enjoy. Cheers - Beth, Matt and Reed

The place was amazing. From the moment we walked in until we left everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed it

Variety of options is remarkable! Service was excellent. Value is very good. Had some feedback on use of tofu in migas. Waitstaff was to deliver to chef. A great place for a great meal!
BTW: still pretty noisy. Lots of hard surfaces...

This was our best find while visiting Austin! We had the mimosa flight with syrups (not juice) and it was fabulous. Not too sweet! The homemade chips are excellent. Very creative food and emphasis on local sourcing.

We were eager to try a new Austin dining experience on our Anniversary, and we were not disappointed. The downtown location was easy to find, with metered street parking available. We highly recommend starting with the Brushetta. You get to choose three different options on your appetizer plate, and the ones we chose were absolutely delicious, each pairing different textures and tastes to create a unique and satisfying first course. We then shared a plentiful main dish so we could splurge on a special dessert - a creamy Vanilla Crème Brûlée. Perfection!

 (Portland)·Dined on December 16, 2017

We stopped into Grove on the way to a holiday party and are so glad we did. There was a wine flight for every type of wine and a great wine list. So anyone in a group would be able to find something they like. I had a flight and really enjoyed the notes that came with it describing each winery and region. We only had a couple of small plates, the brussel sprouts and cheese board. Both were awesome and so much more food than we had expected. Our server was lovely and took really great care of us.

We cannot wait to go back when we have more time to try more of the small plates and wines.

Tried this place out on my friend's last night in town. We sat out on the back deck which was really nice. We each had a wine flight and we shared a couple different dishes. The food was great and so was the wine! Our server was lovely.

We sat outside on the patio. We waiter was very friendly and helpful suggesting food and drinks. The bruschetta options were excellent and you were able to try different toppings in the same order which was nice. The squash soup was very tasty, a little spicy for me but everyone else enjoyed it. We will definitely go back another time.

We were visiting Austin for the first time and wanted to eat at The Grove. My wife had the short ribs and she loved them. I wanted to create my own pizza but I was concerned about the rater who claimed to have received a burnt pizza. I asked if the pizza could be made soft and chewy. I was assured that was not a problem. It was a perfect pizza! We shared a key lime pie that was nicely tart. Our wine that evening was a lovely right bank Bordeaux. It was a wonderful evening. We would return if we find ourselves in Austin in the future.

My friends and I had a wonderful dining experience. Our server was very knowledgeable and recommended the perfect wine to our group. The service was prompt and we never felt rushed to finish our meal. The decor and ambience were ideal and our food was fabulous. We especially enjoyed the bruschetta appetizer choices. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Grove Wine Bar for any special occasion. Thank you for making our girls’ weekend so special.
