The food is average at best, mostly lacked creativity and was uninspired. It is entirely too pricey for the level of cuisine and portions they serve. I had high hopes going in and was incredibly disappointed. I believe much of the hype is their location. But they have missed an opportunity to do something special with this place.

I had not been here in years - so I was excited to come before a concert. The food was just not that good. The best item was the salad which the waiter strangely told us was "not substantial" enough to share. It as not huge - but it was fine. I ordered three side vegetable plates. The sweet potatoes were very good - but cold upon arrival. The cauliflower in tomato sauce was terrible. The sauce tasted just like a can of Hunt's tomato sauce. The mushrooms in steak sauce were not tasty at all. My husband ordered the chicken - he said it was good. I tried one of his roasted potatoes and it was under cooked. We also had the bread - which we both enjoyed. It is a beautiful space. I just don't think the food is special.

Great, but too loud for a business lunch. Location is downtown so the ambiance would be perfect is noise is dampened.

Superb food and service. Very relaxing atmosphere, sitting along the window. The bartender nailed my beverage. For me it was a bit loud, but it was pretty full with a few groups, so understandable. Very reasonably priced for what you get.

Wanted to try something new for my dad’s birthday. The restaurant is gorgeous. Service was good - not overly attentive but also a little slow at times. Value for the size of the portions was great but food was just okay. They brought out an ice cream dessert for my dad in honor of his birthday which we thought was a nice touch as we did not ask for it - until the bill came and we found out they charged us for it!!! Also charged us a 20% service fee on a party of 6 ..... which I can understand but I usually only encounter that when I’m in a party of 8 or more.

My family and I enjoyed our Sunday brunch. It was our first time and it was HRW $35 per person for brunch buffet. Mimosas and other brunch cocktails were $15 with 1 cent refills. All around service was superb. Food quality and presentation was great. Meat selections from fish to chicken to the brisket were all juicy and packed with flavors. Your breakfast sweet staples such as French toast, crepes and pancakes was superb. You get the option to add more syrup, but I enjoyed them without the extra sweetness. Their bacon was spot on juicy and not salty which I enjoyed very much. They have a couple of options for Benedict’s and an omelette station. You can also make your own salad and choose your own dressing. Everything was fresh. There was a lot of choices. The mimosa tasted great. There are many choices for desserts too: donuts, panna cota, cheesecake, cake and fruits. I definitely recommend dining with the Grove.

I can not recall our server name :( but it started with a B. He was great in making sure we were taken care of and that our friends peanut allergy was acknowledged. I give him 5 stars :)

The food was mediocre at best. The bread was stale. Vegetables were overcooked and poorly presented. One of the least appetizing meals I've had in Houston.

Staff was friendly. Pricing two expensive for the quality, what I ordered as the main course was ok, dessert selection was disappointing. I could have gone to Vic & Anthony's for the same price.

The staff is very nice. The food was good. I wouldn’t call it amazing. But good taste. The food portions are actually very good, unlike other restaurants what serve huge plates but the price for the portion is rather higher. This is the second time we have been here. We will definitely come back here.

My husband and I and another couple had dinner at The Grove on a Monday night. I’d made a reservation, but we could have easily gotten a table without one. Again, because it was a Monday, we easily found a park on the street. It was Houston Restaurant Weeks so we chose items from RW menu. The other couple had the pork chop, my husband had the petite beef and I had salmon. Everything was beautifully plated and delicious. The salmon was good, but I wished I had gotten the pork chop instead. It was amazing. We all had the wedge salad to start, but chose different desserts. We all agreed that the chocolate moose was the best, although it was a bit rich. I also had the pomegranate margarita and loved it. The service was spectacular as well. Beautifully situation at Discovery Green and perfect for night dining. Great place for a date night or night out with friends.

We love the view of this restaurant! The food was very good and the service was excellent. We ate off of the restaurant weeks menu. The filet was very good, but we were not thrilled with the sweet potato side with arugula and chopped onions. However, the pineapple coconut tres leches and the chocolate mousse were both wonderful. We will definitely go back because we want to try the black drum.

The hostess sat us at a great table that she said was in our profile...very nice that we were remembered. Service was great even though it was packed. Food (steak and salad) and wine by the glass were excellent. Menu changed some but still great. Thank you very much for a memorable evening. Oh and Dessert of banana pudding like tiramisu...delicious.
