It truly is a labor of love. We’re always trying to stay on top of our game and make things even better, but we never lose sight of the initial idea that wine and food are for everyone to enjoy.

It was a great restaurant. I wouldn't say the food was spectacular, but we really enjoyed it.

Food was good, service was okay, i always had to stop a waitress for service at my table. When asking questions I felt rushed.

Really nice, low-key place with a solid menu of delicious lighter options from pizzas to fish dishes and pastas. My entree was delicious - the Halibut - and seemed to be a 600-700 calorie meal. This is really handy when you are trying to watch your weight but still would like a nice dining experience. The patio overlooking Shoal Creek was perfect at 7PM; the crowd was very pleasant, heavily younger people, but a nice mix of ages including several retired couples. I dinged the service one star because our server left us unattended for quite awhile. However, she was very pleasant (and apologetic) and overall we had a wonderful evening.

Perfect outdoor dining spot downtown - where you don't feel like you're downtown. Quiet, pretty & the perfect brunching beats.

We were seated outside on the patio, which was wonderful, as we didnt want to sit near others especially during covid-19. Let me say, first the Food was excellent and our waitress was superb. However, though the outside patio wasn't crowded upon our arrival, it did get pretty crowded halfway during our meal. I felt the Tables were not placed far enough apart and there were some pretty large groups surrounding our table. Secondly, we noticed a young man (I'm assuming a manager) walking around to greet everyone and asking if they needed anything.... except for our table. We watched him greeting, smiling and talking to everyone at their tables, thinking he'll make his way to ours as well. Unfortunately, he walked right past us and we weren't even acknowledged. I dont want to sound ugly, however, we were the only table of color, and the only table he didnt greet..... just saying. Overall, the service, food and ambience was nice.

This is a favorite of ours because of the quality of both food and service. Manager Daniel came to table and visited - more than the polite hello, he really wanted to know how we felt.

A very well run location with an excellent outdoor patio by the creek. Food is always well prepared and the staff is friendly and attentive. Taking COVID seriously and runs the operation smartly and in a relaxed way as well. You can tell experienced hands are at the controls here. Highly recommend.

My first trip back to The Grove downtown ATX in this post-COVID weirdness breach of the time-space continuum. The food was great, drinks were good, service was OK. The food: Texas Redfish ceviche, a unique recipe of the Mexican appetizer. Lots of super fresh veggies, a bit of jalapeno for some heat, and super fresh fish. It was awesome. Fried Oysters were a good as ever. Perfectly fried oysters, topped with a spicy aioli and mango poblano pico de gallo. Set atop home made potato chips, were proved to be the perfect delivery vehicle for the oysters. The Wine Lover's and Sausage Gone Wild pizzas were both great. A perfect blend of sauce, toppings and cheese, atop an incredibly fresh hand made dough. The drinks were good. Not much worth having on the specialty cocktail menu (good drinks, just not to our liking). A thorough, well thought out mix of old world and new world wines on the wine list. The Grove also offers 10 different flights, we selected #8, several very good Italian reds to compliment our pizzas. The miscues were on the service side, water glasses empty and dirty dishes left on the table for an extended time. Overall, a good visit, and a solid 4 star meal.



dirty dishes lingered on the table

Food was just average. We had the bruschetta appetizer. Portion was small and salmon was very salty and dry. We also had calamari. This was decent. We ordered the Filet. It was good quality and portion but overcooked. We also had the Berry Salad with grilled shrimp. 4 shrimp-that's it! and they were VERY overcooked and dried out. Wine was the best thing. Would not go back. There are too many other places with better food. And this was $200 with tip.

Really nice space in a great location. Wine selections were very good and their flight system is a solid offering. Menu is diverse. Salads were excellent as was dessert. One item at our table was overcooked, server discovered it and manager proactively offered a re-do or a complimentary glass of wine. We had fun.

Disappointing service but how can anyone think straight having to wear masks and serve to those without masks. I suppose I would feel frustrated with them as well? Food was really good as always.

It was really fun to get back out there and "dine in" for the first time since quarantine. The Grove made us feel welcome and very safe! We were impressed with the precautions they are taking relative to Covid-19.
