Meh. Food bland. Same decor as everywhere else. Maybe covid is to blame.

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

Great place to eat outside and people watch! The weather was perfect! Definitely order the bread and butter -- it's amazing! Everything else was good too. Lots of sights to see from the porch.

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

We initially reserved for a patio table but it rained so we had to move inside. Otherwise, it was a perfect evening with great service, beautiful views, and amazing food!

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.

Our reputation (and reviews) for impeccable service and incredible food precedes us and is our top priority, so to know that we did not deliver the same for you is very disappointing. 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.

Started with beet hummus, had the gnocchi, partner had salmon, finished with kufti gelato. Coffee is French press (important to me). I’m not vegetarian but entree was so they cater to all diets. Loved it all!

First time eating brunch there and the food was amazing! Service was fast when we got there but slowed significantly as the time went on. But nothing that would keep us from going back. It did get busier also.

The food was served lukewarm...even our neighbors stated the same. The Filet Mignon was really carne asada. Overpriced and won't go back with so many others to choose from.
