Outstanding! The outdoor seating made us feel incredibly safe. even outside there was significant distancing between tables. note you must make reservations in advance and request outdoor seating these tables fill up fast.

The salmon and the steak were both extremely good. The drinks from the bar were very solid as well.

We'll be back soon.

Our server Taylor was great. We sat outdoors and the weather was amazing, combined with the lush greenery.. just a treat itself.

We spend Halloween evening at the Grove. The menu has been abbreviated due to the pandemic but we still were able to select something delicious. We selected outdoor dining and the weather fully cooperated with us. Enjoyed watching everyone walking by with their entertaining costumes. We enjoyed the evening very much.

The great cocktails and the kale Caesar salad are amazing!! (I dream of them in between visits!)
Regina is a friendly hostess who always remembers my daughter and her fiancé so it feels so welcoming when we come in.

First off all, staff make is so hard and weird to get a table. I made the request outside, so they explain that we can go on the second floor but they will not going to serve. Then what's the point to go there. So we just sit outside, and feel like i'm in simple coffee shop. It's really disappointing.

We ate outside in October. When night fell, they brought us a small, lit globe. It was beautiful. The crowd from the attractions at Discovery Green were close enough to see and hear, but far enough that there was still plenty of privacy and quiet. The service was exceptional. The food was amazing. It was a bit pricy, but well-worth it. Try the water!! They distill in-house. It’s fantastic!

The hostess didn't seem to be too friendly but our server Rick more than made up for it. We sat outside downstairs and the only thing I can say that was bad was the ants and flies. I would come back and maybe sit inside

Server was good however the servers delivering plates were brusque to the point of rudeness. All service excruciatingly slow and the kitchen took over fifteen minutes to deliver small salad, and prepared desserts. Entres took over 40 minutes. Valet left a car blocking entrance and took key away from the site, causing a fifteen minute delay to exit. Have eaten at this restaurant multiple times in the past and will not return

Dining at the Grove is always a magical experience. The food is great, but the setting next to Discovery Green is magical. I wish I lived closer.

Unfortunately, we were told they weren’t expecting soo many people. Second outdoor table to arrive. Waited 25 minutes for bottle of high end champagne. Same for shrimp cocktail. Filet cooked 1.5 temps above desired and over seasoned, likened to either a rookie diner cook or covering up poor quality of steak.

Received scripted apology from manager and cost removed.

Ambience was very nice and obvious our server was over booked but still apologetic and did her best.

We may give them a chance for a make up.

We would love to make it right and show you what everyone is raving about! Please reach out to our GM Jody Fiess to set something up.

Date night with the wife. We had not been out in so long so it was so nice to have such a great meal. We had great service, great food and wine and an excellent atmosphere while eating on the patio. Everyone was super nice. The Grove is a Houston treasure everyone should frequent so they stick around!

Everything thing at the restaurant was fantastic but the food wasn't really seasoned well...I had the the lobster crab and shrimp wrap with the side of steak fries...the season on the wrap could've have been better. The steak fries was supposed to have a taste a sea salt to it. I couldn't taste it...an my lovely date had the double meat burger with the side of steak fries an she had the same issue with her order as well...but overall it was a good experience.

Sat outside with a lot of flies. Most disappointing was that I had put a note in celebrating a special occasion and no one asked us what the occasion was or offered us a complementary dessert.

We came for lunch during Houston Restaurant Weeks after not going anywhere for months during the COVID crisis. We were fully prepared to leave if it didn't feel like a safe place, but happily - it was! They took every precaution imaginable, the service was perfect, and the food delicious. We'll be back again. If you go for lunch get the Fish BLT, my husband and I were fighting over it!

The food was just ok and the chicken was too salty. Both the grilled chicken on a salad and the chicken entree as well. My daughter couldn’t even eat her meal it was so salty. That item was not included in our bill, but I just expected more.
