Due to having a very limited number of tables available on the patio 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.

We cannot accept requests for specific tables at this time.

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

So disappointed in our salads. First time I have been disappointed with food from the Grove. Salads were ok but not tasty and fresh.

The server was great however the host and hostess were terrible, seemed they didn’t wish to be there and made the guest know.

Lovely view and always good food. Like that there are many gluten free, vegan, vegetarian or dairy free options. Ingredients are listed on the menu too, for reference.

Plastic chairs on the patio that were cheap and dirty. The hostess greeted my husband and I with a "YES" in a tone as if we were bothering her! I was appalled, our first server approached the table and simply said "do you know what you want to drink". Our second server was much more seasoned and made the experience worth the price tag.

We were on the patio and asked to be seated at a warmer table. The inside tables were booked so the waiter moved us to a table closer to the building. We were much warmer and the food was delicious.

Beautiful setting, but the food was just ok. Surprised to be served a flight of pinot noir wines that were warmer than room temp. Unfortunately, a disappointing experience overall. We really wanted to like this place. Lots of unrealized potential. Won't be back.

Food has declined here.
Service is sketchy even with less tables to cover
Inside eating area is over run with nats and flies.

Reservation on a Friday was at 545pm. By 730pm they were already kicking us out. If your trying to spend time and enjoy a course dinner probably go M-Thurs.

First time dining at The Grove in Lakeway, TX. Excellent food, decent portion size, fabulous view. Reserved a seat next to the huge ceiling-to-floor window. Could not be better! Waiter was just ok. View, ambiance, food flavor made this experience Excellent!

It is best to have a reservation. We originally booked an outside table but the weather did not cooperate and we were graciously moved indoors. We still had a beautiful view through the massive glass windows.

Beautiful view from the outdoor patio tables. Wine list and flights were very interesting and we tried two flights each as wanted to taste different wines from around the world. We ordered the burrata and beets as well as the tuna appetizers and they were delicious as well as generous portions. For our seconds we had the roasted chicken which was beautifully prepared with sautéed spinach and roasted tomatoes. Also we enjoyed a large meat lovers pizza which had a nice spice from the sausage and the crust was cooked perfectly. Definitely a place to come back as the menu had many fun other options we would like to try. Service also was very warm and we felt as they were happy to be working there which is always nice to see. We will be back soon

Overall, it was a pleasant evening. We had reservations and we were seated right away. The tables were plenty far apart as to not feel uncomfortable and we could not hear other table's conversation. It took a little longer to get waited on than we thought it should have, but once we were, our waiter was friendly and efficient.

I rated low on the value because 2 of the 4 of us had the ahi tuna salad. While fresh and tasty, the restaurant really skimped on the amount of tuna. It was 4 pretty small pieces - certainly less than we expected and less than what the price warranted. It was prepared well, there just wasn't enough of it.

Other than that, we had a good time, good meal, good wine, and we would return. We just wouldn't order the Ahi tuna salad again!

Food was good, restaurant could have been cleaned and floors swept outside more regularly as tables were turned over. Staff was helpful but could have used another hand outside as tableware and refills took some time to make it to the table.

Our sweet waitress was a jewel! She could not have been nicer and more efficient. She brought our wine quickly and checked on us just enough without being intrusive. The food was delicious as always. Love the bruschetta, a must at every visit.

The view is beautiful. The rest is down hill. If you are looking for a nice quiet evening with fantastic food go somewhere else. The restaurant is very loud and the food is no where near what it should be for the price.

We had to get up 3 times to draw their attention and they took 45 minutes to take our order. The host could not find our reservation, we had to show the email, which she barely read but kind of convinced her. The fried calamary were chewy. We ordered a 2017 wine, they brought a 2018 and did not present the bottle. The whole process was extremely slow. They remove 2 items from the check to make it up, but I'd rather pay extra and get good service than getting a discount and poor service. We've been going to this place often but it has been going downstream for a while. Are they planning to shutdown?

Great to see many people out and enjoying dinner at The Grove! Altho it was foggy and rainy outside, the view is still one of the best from its placement. Enjoyed the meal and top service!
