    While the dinner and ambience was good I can’t say the same about the state of their bathroom. Out of toilet paper and not very clean.

    It was a bit crazy for my 7:00p reservation because there was a concert at the Toyota Center. BUT… 1. The valet came through for me! THANK YOU! 2. I was so disappointed because I couldn’t get the Thai wings…all gone. But our server decided that she wouldn’t let me be disappointed. She gave us the crab corn fritters and OMG…they were amazing!! I’ll be back for those! Wonderful ambiance, great cocktails, excellent service inside and outside! Thanks for a being a shining star during my birthday weekend!

    Eric did a stellar job guiding us through drinks, appetizers, entrees and a birthday dessert. The food was delicious, and seating was comfortable, and the service was impeccable. Also, the valet were very helpful given the crowded parking demand on the night of a concert at Toyota Center and Astro’s game at Minute Maid Park.

    We were totally mislead by the reviews of this restaurant. The menu was very slim and not a wide selection at all. The food was terrible and a bit overpriced for what they were serving. There was $6 fee for bread and butter basically like Parker style rolls from the frozen section at the local grocery store. I wanted a steak but the side selection was horrible. I ordered the burger and it was drenched with this horrible sauce ! Way too much sauce and I asked my waitress prior to ordering and I wasn’t told it would be drenched. I ordered roasted cauliflower which came drenched with another tomato based paste that was awful. The asparagus came drenched with another sauce. The service was ok. The restaurant is very pretty and the valet guy was very nice. Overall I will not be returning! My sister was very disappointed with her selection.

    Waiter was not knowledgeable. Food was mediocre. Bar drinks were incorrectly mixed each time. Valet Parking overcharged due to event next door, even though we were only at the restaurant and cost was clearly posted at a lower rate.

    Sooooo slow. We only come to The Grove before going to the Toyota Center for events. We gave ourselves an hour, which should be plenty of time. It took 15-20 minutes just to get drinks. My husband’s entree was so late coming out that they took it off the bill. We had to get the check at the same time the food came out so we’d be able to get out of there in time for our show.

    We were looking for a good restaurant in a great location where we could meet some friends who’d flown in from California. The Grove was perfect! The valet attendant was so welcoming, preparing us for the experience to come. We had grilled redfish and the short ribs, both delicious. Our waitress gave wonderful service. The restaurant is open and beautiful with a wall of windows overlooking Discovery Green. We’ll definitely return.

    great, helpful staff, yummy new dishes (post-covid), needs a little more sauce/spice imho; food portions were very generous. prefer smaller bites for smaller dollars. Very nice, quiet meal with friends--could actually hear ppl talk. well done.

    We are proponents of Restaurant Week and the noble cause it serves. Having eaten at several restaurants this week, The Grove, hands down, was the best. We were not rushed, our server was friendly and informative, the RW menu choices were varied, and the portions were outstanding. Kudos to the chef for an absolutely delicious dinner. We all sampled, and were surprised that every single dish was excellent. I was on the fence on whether to book two Fall events at this restaurant, and now I have no doubt. We had a great evening.

    Love this Restaurant !!!! So close and convenient to our Concert at the Toyota Center. The waiter Eric was very nice and helpful. Made great suggestions answered all our questions. From the drinks to the appetizers he made some good recommendations. The restaurant is in the middle of Downtown next to Discovery Green and one blocks from the Toyota Center. The restaurant is big and open I highly recommend going.

    Only one vegetarian choice but it was very good. Service was outstanding. The only issue was the liquid paraffin/kerosene candles. Could smell the fumes. I lost my voice and left stuffed up. As a LEED building, please consider switching to flameless candles…cheaper and much better for the health of your staff and patrons.
