The team at The Grove in Houston provided a great experience for us on Thursday, September 10, 2021. Chris provided prompt and cordial service (as do all of the servers who stopped by to talk).

Take the time to go to the Grove. The new menu is excellent.

First time at the grove and it was a delight! Came in Saturday night with my husband and he truly enjoyed the service and food. Everyone was very polite and attentive. We made it to the last day of Houston’s Restaurant week and got to try the garden salad, the steak with fried potato and asparagus and chocolate cake! Sara was amazing with the menu knowledge. The sangrias are fantastic. Oh and we also got some sides, the grits and grilled cauliflower and the tomato sauce that came with them was tasty! Thanks Sara for the wonderful experience! Almost Forgot, the bread and butter was so good!

I came here for my 30th birthday dinner. It was awesome. The food is very good. The staff was kind and competent. I would def recommend for an occasion or date night. If I come back to Houston, I would def come back. My only cpmplaint, which is extremely minor in comparison to everything else, would be that the valet took a long time to return our vehicle.

The wait staff was full of information and helpful with menu selection. Amounts were just right. I had the pork loin with cheese grits and would absolutely have again. Flavor was delicious and meat was tender and juicy. Hubby had the redfish but substituted the side for mashed potatoes because he was hungry and he fully enjoyed the meal.

We love the grove! Got married here three years ago so always come back on our anniversary. Only complaint was the redfish we ordered. It was extremely over cooked :/ We’ve never had an issue before so I hope it was a fluke. Will be returning for more with fingers crossed. Also, praying they bring back Sunday brunch

In town at hotel across the street--checked out reviews on OT. Booked & walked over. Excellent!

It is restaurant week--$45 for 3 courses.

Waiter recommended wedge salad with blue cheese dressing--add bacon and crispy bits & it was truly the best wedge I ever ate.

Selected pork loin (medium) for main course--served on cheesy grits with green beans with fried leeks on top. My description does not do it justice. It was really tasty.

Dessert was berries with ice cream--and bonus creme fraiche. Mouthwatering.

Nice selection of wine by the glass. Calif Chard from Russian River & great Valpocello Ripasso from Veneto. Both nice surprises since by the glass selection is often boring.

I appreciate that only diners can write reviews on OT. This is a winner.

Very mediocre menu. The items featured are for foot traffic wandering by. We had the chicken sandwich and turkey club. They both tasted like they were bought at the deli across the street.

What a great find! Happy Hour 1-5 during the week so just an amazing place to go within walking distance to the stadium prior to an Astros game. All of the dishes were creative and the plate presentations were awesome. And you can’t beat the half price deals!

While the food was delicious it was so noisy due to large groups in the same room, it turned the whole evening into a shouting match. At these prices, you need to install baffles in the ceiling and take other sound mitigation steps to muffle the loud noises and let us dine in relative quite.

The service was horrible. Our waitress was a jerk and had a terrible attitude. It took over 15 minutes to get our drinks. The only reason we finally did was because I had to go to the bar to talk to someone. Luckily the hostess came up to me at the bar and took care of everything. She was the only person there who knew how to take care of things. The manager brought our drinks to us and just said sorry and walked off. The people at the table behind us actually just got up and left because I don’t think anyone ever brought them anything. It was also super loud inside. I couldn’t even hear my wife who was sitting right next to me. The location is awesome, but we were not impressed with everything else. We were there for our anniversary, so that made it extra disappointing. Hopefully it was just a bad night for them.

We booked a reservation and requested a seat outside. Host seemed super stressed and tries to seat us inside. When we pointed at an open table outside, he said “this is reserved for someone else.” ??? Started off on the wrong foot but the service was excellent and the ginger margaritas were even better!!! Lobster fritters were to die for—-

Sat outside and enjoyed the people watching. Ordered the east coast oysters & bread and butter app (so good!). Ordered the ahi tuna aquachile which was really good. My husband ordered the strip steak & enjoyed it but wish there was a little more sides. Had the gelato for dessert and it was really good! Hubby also tried the liquor flight and really enjoyed it.

Seemed under-staffed. Perhaps graduation/prom parties were taking up too much of the staff’s attention and the regular customers were lower priority.

But food was also very average compared to previous visits. Salmon entree was good, but the side dishes were straight-up bland and disappointing.

VERY limited choices on menu. Waitress stated it was due to COVID 19 but I have not experienced this issue at other places.
Waited over 10 minutes for waitress to come to our table. She made an apology and was very good after that - apparently she was unaware she was assigned our table.
Hostess was wonderful and polite.
Biggest disappointment was the lack of items on the menu.
I have always LOVED The Groove but with so many other options available it is unlikely I will return unless I hear the menu has returned to what it once was.

Really enjoyed our lunch at the Grove. We haven’t been out much due to the pandemic so looked in open table for somewhere we could eat outdoors. First time at this restaurant. The outdoor area was very peaceful and tables spaced well apart. We shared the crab corn appetizer, it was delicious. Hubby had the NY strip and said it was the best steak he had in a long time. I had the tuna and avocado appetizer for lunch and really enjoyed it.

Emily our server was there with suggestions and very courteous and helpful. Overall wonderful experience we will be back.
