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.

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!
Mother’s Day Brunch
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.
Our server, Abby, was the best!! We’ll be back.
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
Amazing, we had our 2 year anniversary here and the food was great !
The Grove was a great brunch spot. The service was great and the food was good. I would recommend it.
The food was amazing! I had the tuna with squid ink risotto, it was sooo yummy! Would definitely return to try other menu items! Great experience!
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!
Nice menu selection. Excellent wine list, with a large variety of wines at different price levels.
So fresh and delicious, beautiful patio, not overpriced, we LOVE The Grove!
The food was OK, service lacked much, nothing to write home about. I have been there before with a much better felling about the place.
The food was great but small portions. Very comfortable setting and nice for a relaxing day with a glass of wine.
The ambiance was amazing, the food was great, and the service was awesome! Their wine selection is incredible and the cheese tray is fantastic!
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.
Fantastic service, very safe and spread out in the patio!
Great family experience, and server and food were great!
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.
Great place overall! I had my birthday dinner there and in hindsight it was a bit casual for a special occasion but the drinks, food, and service were all good!
The food was amazing and the drinks were great! We’ll definitely be coming back soon.
Expensive but worth it! Delicious food. Great wine!
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!
Great entree options, reasonable food and wine prices, many wine flight options. Reservations made and we were seated on time, no waiting.
Always good food - lunch and dinner and at all the locations. Great patios too. Wonderful wine selections and many interesting wines that aren't over priced.
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.
Best Patio in downtown Austin! Great Service! Brunch was awesome!
Great food and wine! Service was satisfactory.. Will definitely be back!
We made a reservation and the restaurant was closed. Reservations should not be allowed if the restaurant is closed. Other people were there who had reservations. Disappointing.
Business was closed (which was understandable) but it was not posted anywhere.
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.
So great! Food, service, wine, ambiance. Perfect place for a date!
Great outdoor patio and food
