Due to having a very limited number of tables available currently we are asking that all reservations up to 4 people respect a 90 minute seating time. Tables of 5-6 will be allotted 2 hours. Please wear a protective face covering at all times unless seated at your table. Thank you!

Parties up to 6 people may be reserved online. For parties of 7-10 people please call our host staff to make a reservation at 512-327-8822.

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. 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. Cheers - Beth, Matt and Reed

Delicious food, great covered patio out back. Our waiter was perfectly courteous, just wished he knew more about the wine list. He also disappeared a couple times, but we weren't in a rush so not a big deal. Overall, very nice!

Specifically requested an outside table, called the same day to confirm and was told it was outside. When our party arrived we were told there were no outside available so we sat inside in the walkway of the restaurant. Not a great experience.

What's great about the Grove is that it is consistently good and good value. Another plus is that you can usually get a reservation on relatively short notice -- it is an overlooked, i.e., non-trendy, gem on the locally-owned dining scene.

We are regulars at this restaurant and have never had a problem before, but today we were extremely disappointed. The service was worse than usual, and the food was not good. The salad was missing normal items (avocado), and was very bland. The pizza was terrible - the crust tasted stale and brittle, and it had way too much sauce. They definitely are off their game. Very disappointed.

The flights of wine are enough to get you through 2 courses without having to order another glass. Tuna was great.

Good food and drinks, nice outdoor seating, really lackluster service. Waiter left things off our order and was totally absent til we flagged him down so we could pay. He was pretty rude, too. I haven’t had that experience there before, so maybe it was just an off day. Unfortunate, but we still enjoyed our meal overall

My server Nate was very knowledgeable and attentive! I had a Red French Flight which resulted in me purchasing a bottle. I paired it with Pizza and a Salad which were both ample in size and delicious. I’d definitely come back when in Austin!

The food was excellent. Never had a "Pork Chop Saltimbocca" before...I wanted another, that's how good it was. My wife had the "Vodka Shrimp Linguini" and she said it was excellent as well. Well versed wine list, but we each chose from one of their 10 different flights...well matched. When I'm in Austin, I'll be back! Oh yea...the service was very good as well.

The Grove has a great menu, but unfortunately the restaurant was not able to honor our reservation due to the previous party staying at their table longer than anticipated. We weren't sat until 45 minutes after our booked reservation time.

Excellent service at the front desk, at the table and any employee walking by the booth was friendly and acknowledge our presence!
A server from a previous time I visited this location came over to the booth and thanked me for coming back again and chatted about the person I was with the previous time and if she would be meeting me there.
The food choices are my only minor complaint. Some items were not available when we were ordering our dinner.
Many wine choices and great selection of wine displayed on the walls!
Good choice, food, service and wine!

The food and drinks were delicious! The server was very kind, my friend had to elevate her knee and she was so kind and brought a bag of ice out for her to ice it. It was so beautiful! Celebrated a girls birthday, and our server even got us a personal slice of desert for her! Overall recommend! Will definitely come back soon!

The food and service were wonderful. We asked to be moved to a table away from the speakers, since the music was playing too loud to have a decent conversation with the other couple we were there with.

The menu is good but the food is sub par at best. Definitely overpriced for how it’s prepared and the quality of the food. Our drinks were just “OK”The ambiance is nice and the restaurant was clean. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Overall, it was average to below average and I wouldn’t visit again.

We are not from the area but had been to the Austin location at the Domain last year and enjoyed it so we decided to visit the downtown location. The food was very good. Service was okay - our waiter was very nice but seemed to forget things and would make several trips to our table. Overall the meal was enjoyable.
