Wine Bar
From the get-go, our goal has been to provide a casual place where Austinites and visitors could enjoy great wine and food. When we first opened, we called ourselves a wine bar. However, since our inception, we have had a full kitchen. Does this make us a restaurant, people wonder? It definitely makes us more than a wine bar. We are The Grove Wine Bar | Kitchen. We hope our customers appreciate and enjoy what we do. It truly is a labor of love. A number of people, both current and former employees, have helped make The Grove what it is today. A restaurant can never rest on its laurels, especially in a place like Austin that has so many great dining options. We’re always trying to stay on top of our game and make things even better, and we never lose sight of the initial idea that wine and food are for everyone to enjoy. Cheers - Beth, Matt and Reed

The view is great. Customer service was, too. Food was good, but nothing to rave about. I was disappointed that we used Opentable to book a reservation and they said that they didn't have a table inside but they put us at the bar. Seemed strange because Opentable works at other restaurants well.

Busy Saturday night but was able to accommodate our late request for a table of 5 outside. Service started out great, but got a little slow at the end. Great attitude of waiter though. Appetizers were excellent as usual. Crab cake, calamari and brussel sprouts were spot on. Salads and redfish were excellent (risotto especially good with redfish). Linguini dish with shrimp was a lot spicier than described. Would order again, but with less spice. Prices were very reasonable as always. Could beef up the dessert menu a bit. Overall, really solid value and consistent spot in Lakeway. Will visit again and again.

Valentin’s Fay Dinner - looking for great food and a fine dining experience.
Had the standing rib - which was fantastic. My wife had the seafood pasta which was great also.
The place was half full at 7:40 pm and we received what I considered poor service.
Waited to order a drink, waited to order and waited even longer for the bill.
Have eaten here previously and would have rated it a 5 of 5.
Very disappointed in the service - but the food was great!!

Overall service was awful. We had to wait on our server when we got there for about 20 minutes and her attitude was very miserable. The occasion was my birthday and y’all didn’t do anything for that but a couple table down someone had a birthday and they got cake with candles and y’all didn’t even at least take of the drinks form out bill. When we asked for our bill it took about 40 minutes and we saw the waitress just talking at the other table. I will not be going to the grove anytime soon.

The Grove (we frequent both Cedar Park and Lakeway locations) is always consistent. We know that we can rely on getting both good service as well as good food at either location. The fig & proscuitto pizza was very good and the scallops were wonderful. We also had an assortment of other appetizers which were all very good. You really can't go wrong at the Grove!

Our young male waiter was not the best example of good customer service. Upon arrival he approached our table but did not greet or ask what we wanted to drink...he just stood there waiting for us to say something first. Not until we were leaving did he simulate what perhaps could’ve been a smile. I do have to say that he replaced our pizza at no cost after it fell to the floor, off of the pizza stand.

I have not visited this location in quite a while. The food was fine although I do feel that the Cedar Park locations food is a step above what we received at this location. I had the ahi tuna salad, tuna was wonderful but the salad itself was less than wonderful. Soup was very nice...and the impossible burger was just underpar the evening we visited...the chips to go along with the burger had the texture of sitting for a while. We are huge fans of The Grove and this location is beautiful but I'm not sure that I will be visiting this location for the food anytime soon. Service was great....No complaints at all with the ambience or service.
