Wine Bar
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

We intended to go for dinner but ended up just having an appetizer and splitting a flight and went elsewhere for dinner. The bruschetta was pretty good. Nothing else on the menu really jumped out at us for food. The bartender was super friendly and we had no issues, we were just in a more adventurous mood than what they had on the menu.

Food and service was amazing. The noise level was a bit high for my liking, I do not enjoy the feeling of having to talk loudly at the diner table to be heard.

This place is a great spot for groups or date night! The ambiance is great and the outdoor seating is so beautiful. The only thing that was a bummer was I had asked for a frozen mango margarita and the server gave me a "melty"-glass-not-full margarita, and all the other tables that requested the same drink were all frozen and full to the brim. Besides that, everything was great!

The food here was excellent. My only complaint is that our server was not that good. He asked us what we wanted to order and then promptly forgot some of the order and had to be reminded. We had to flag down other servers for refills. We had to flag down other servers to order coffee and dessert. We had to flag down other servers for to-go boxes. Simply not good service.

We always have a nice experience at the Grove. This time we requested a quiet table in the back of the restaurant and that request was not honored. Not sure the hostesses are reading the open table requests at this location. Also had a few mishaps with the waiter not getting the order correct. Overall still our favorite place as it is close to home and we love the menu choices.

The Grove Wine Bar and Kitchen is the perfect place for a date night or a chill evening with friends. The atmosphere is very relaxed, especially if you sit outside. Our waitress was amazing and recommended a fantastic wine to us (the 2017 Paolo Scavino ). The food was also delicious as we started with Bruschetta and ended with main courses of the Red Fish on the Halfshell and the Porkchops. We can’t wait until we’re back in Austin so we can visit there again!

Our first opportunity for a patio seating since our move to downtown Austin. The weather was perfect! We went with some good friends and had a great time. Bonus - we found out that Monday night is 1/2 price wine by the glass! Perfect!

I can NOT get enough of this place!! It is one of my favorite brunch spots, but also fabulous for lunch and dinner. If you're out with friends, on a date, or just conducting business, you can't go wrong with this hot spot in Downtown Austin. My favorite brunch is the bruchetta flight paired with the mimosa flight! The wine list is extensive (hello, it's a WINE BAR!)

Totally unexpected for us to dine on an evening when the wines by glass were half off AND the bruschetta was also half off. We had an eclectic selection of different entrée and appetizer items and none of them disappointed. Will definitely recommend to other visiting the city of Austin. Cheers!

Really liked it. A+ for scenery. Great view of the creek. Nice downtown vibe. Excellent service. Fast but not too fast. "Fake" meat burger was a hit. Avocado gazpacho (sp?) was a nice surprise. The tofu wrap... a little less than a hit. A little light on the tofu... a little heavy on other things. Drinks managed to cover up any blemishes with the tofu wrap.

We sat on the patio on a beautiful Friday afternoon and you would never know you were on W 6th. The setting is beautiful and all you see is the foliage planted to block the street from the patio. The food was also good - my friend had the impossible burger and it was impossibly good! It really did taste like beef! I had the salmon salad that was fresh and delicious, and we shared the poke appetizer which was also really yummy. I would definitely come back to enjoy another glass of wine and a meal on the patio.
