About the restaurant
IMPORTANT: If Open Table does not offer you a choice to book an outside table it is because they have been booked already. If there are tables outside available you will have a choice between "Standard Seating" (meaning inside) or "Outside Table". We may have cancellations etc that could open something up so you are welcome to leave us a note that you would like to move outside if possible, but we cannot guarantee that.

We ask that all reservations up to 4 people respect a 90 minute seating time. Tables of 5-6 will be allotted 2 hours.

Since this location has limited protection from rain we could be forced to cancel outside reservations last minute. We will do everything we can to provide as much advance notice as possible.

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.

We were having dinner with dear friends from out of town. The Grove Wine Bar is our favorite place and never disappoints us. The food is ALWAYS DELICIOUS, and truly has something fabulous for everyone; service is attentive and helpful. We prefer to dine on the patio, but it is just toooo hot right now so we were inside. It can get a little noisy, but not a real problem. We have also visited the new restaurant on Spicewood Springs Rd and at the Lakeway location. Always a wonderful experience!

Bienvenue à Justine's!
Our art filled dining room and winter tent are all available for walk-ins. We only take reservations for parties of 6 or more.

Guests waiting for tables are invited to have a cocktail, indulge in a caviar bump from the raw bar & lounge beneath the blue neon of our garden pagoda and meet friends old and new.
If you think you've gone too far ... keep going!

First time eating here. Had the Leche de Tigre and Lomo Saltado. Both were excellent. Portions were on the smaller side. My wife had a Mango Mule which was potent and I had the Maracuya (sp?) passion fruit juice, which may be too sweet for some. Shaded outdoor seating with plenty of fans and misters. It was in the mid 90s when we went and we were totally comfortable. Seating could be better considering the price point.

I love this place! The food is consistently even better than expected. I am fussy about my shrimp and grits and this is by far the best in town. Pretty much anything here is great. They also have outstanding live bands on their shaded patio.

About the restaurant
Located in South Austin, our Michoacán inspired family recipes demand we make nearly everything on the menu fresh daily and we never use artificial flavorings or enhancers. All of our drinks and margaritas are made with fresh squeezed lime juice and fruits that we ate growing up like tamarindo, mango, and grapefruit that we would just pick from our grandmother’s trees.

Service was good, our waiter would check on us and made sure we were good. Music may be loud for others, but it’s part of the ambiance - Sunday Funday!

Beautiful place. The recommended chicken pot pie, though flavorful, was lacking enough chicken and veggies. Jackfruit slider appetizers were outstanding. Very helpful wait staff, though they tended to disappear from time to time. Bartender was terrific - friendly and helpful.
