Went for my boyfriends birthday. Service was great and food was too.
The food and drinks were very good, but we were disappointed to find that the menu had been replaced by a buffet brunch. That doesn't work when you only want to eat a certain amount and you have to pay $35 regardless.
Fresh catch fritters excellent
Waiter was a pushy. He interrupted an in depth conversation with my multi million dollar client twice. After the first major interruption, we gave him our order. His response was " so no starters, huh? That was the question". I should have cut his tip out, he didn't deserve it, however, unlike him, I am not overtly rude.
Service, drinks, and dessert were great. A little too loud for a romantic evening but probably would’ve been better if we sat outside.
However the shrimp and grits were extremely bland and too overly spicy. Not worth the $22 at all. Pretty disappointed for a $100+ meal.
A lovely seafood dinner. Casual and relatively fast yet excellent food. Just what we needed prior to a Rockets Playoff game
Had a fabulous time. Everything and MORE of what I expected!!! The waiter was very professional and knowledgeable - Will definitely return.
The food was excellent, especially the beet hummus. Outstanding service and great ambiance!
I often eat here for lunch and dinner. It’s one of my favorite restaurants but lately the lunch hasn’t been as good. The beef short rib tacos are my favorite but the last two times there wasn’t much meat. Bummed about that because it is usually delicious.
This was my second time at the Grove. The service was excellent and the food was quite tasty. Albeit a bit pricey for the amount of food that you get. The cocktails were really good, especially the Ginger Margarita. This is a great spot for a date night or to have dinner before a Rockets game or other event downtown. I would definitely recommend this place
In Houston, celebrating our anniversary. Our waiter, Jared, was fantastic. Very versed with the menu, and was able to answer all our questions. We ended up selecting the cheese board with 3 types of cheese for our appetizer, quail and the short rib for our entree. All of it was so delicious. I do have to say, the short rib was the best I have ever had. I highly recommend the short rib. You won’t be disappointed.
All good! The suggestions from server was right on from wine to dessert.
The service and ambiance is nice. It is a quick walk to the Toyota Center. For the value/price of the food, I would recommend eating at Pappasito's next door.
First time experiencing the grove and we loved it. We will definitely be back when we visit Houston. If the special is a NY Strip definitely try that.
Family gathering with out of town guests. Pretty setting. Much easier to visit once the crowd left for the Rockets game!!
What an outstanding place to grab brunch! Beautiful building, nice view, fantastic wait staff, and excellent food! $20 for a 3 course brunch is a STEAL! Will definitely visit here again!
Rockets pre game meal
Our server was remarkable slow, relative to the other tables near us. Guests seated 5-10 minutes after us had their drinks and food well before we did. Our bottle of champagne was barely chilled when we finally received it. (I think they chilled a room temperature bottle once we ordered it... the wait being because it needed time to cool off). The food was very good, when it finally arrived.
Loved the brunch. 3 courses $20??wasn't expecting much for that but so surprised. Had corn salad:fresh corn tomatoes, avocado walnuts . Beef hash on cauliflower grits. So good.very tasty. And the pound cake for dessert. Simple , and plentiful. Lovely atmosphere. There were a lot of young families when we sat down, but more younger crowd came in soon after. Great place to meet up with friends after night in the city or with visitors.
Wonderful ambience and food.
Great place, really good food and the service was top notch.
My mother, DIL and myself were downtown to attend the Houston Ballet. As it was being held at the George R. Brown (due to the Wortham being flooded by Harvey) we decided to have Sunday brunch at the Grove. It's located in Discovery Green just a block away from GRB. Lovely restaurant - light and airy with a large row of windows overlooking Discovery Green. I had requested a table by the window on my OT reservation and we received that. The valet, hostess and wait staff were all friendly & efficient. No issues with the staff. However, the food is another matter. 3 generations were represented in our group - 80, 60 & 28 - and none of us were particularly thrilled with our brunch. On the positive, the deviled eggs were good and my DIL liked her grilled corn salad. Of the 3 entrees, mine - the shrimp & grits was the most unpalatable. Not only did it look unappetizing, it tasted bland and was extremely greasy. I ate the shrimp and a few bites of the grits & kale, but mainly left it alone. Whoever thought up this combo, needs to go back to the drawing board. The kale in it is tasteless and way too much. My DIL had the beef eggs benedict and thought it was ok, but not great. The meat is bbq and again way too greasy - as in grease pooling on the plate. My mother had the honey biscuit with chicken. Hers was the best by far, but not great. The waiter graciously offered my DIL fruit for dessert as she is Gluten free. A nice gesture. My mother had the meyer lemon poundcake and I had the brown sugar pound cake. The lemon one was the best - good lemon flavor and moist, but the brown sugar one was dried out.
All in all, I give the Grove a 4 for location, look and staff. A 2 for the food.
I went to the Grove with a friend before the Ballet at GRB. The location, relative to GRB is fantastic! The service was great without being obtrusive.
We met at 12. I had not previewed the menu. I was expecting to see some lunch items. However, they really only had breakfast items (they called it Brunch).
The one thing that could have been much better was that my espresso came to me luke warm. I expected it to be piping hot.
Nice ambiance and good find for downtown restaurant we could walk to from our hotel. A bit overpriced.
This was our second time to eat at The Grove and it did not disappoint. The food is delicious! We started with the Queso. It was divine and just the right amount of spicy. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and seasoned so well, it made my mouth water. I tried the Texas Corn as my side dish and wow! It was sweet, spicy and tender. I seriously could have just had the corn and been happy. We ended with the banana pudding tiramisu and like everything else, it was fabulous.
The Grove is a beautiful restaurant with great service and even better food.
Everyone at my table had great food. The service is outstanding. The location is lovely and the noise level is magically a non issue and you can chat without yelling. Wine selection is great, too. Did I mention how awesome the service is? The only thing to note is that I would really recommend any of the fish and maybe not get the steak- all of the delicate fish seemed really well prepared.
We sat on the patio because the weather was nice, but we weren’t paid attention to much. Beet hummus wasn’t amazing, but I enjoyed my wedge with added chicken. The cosmo fizz is good!
Food was excellent and service was very good. We ate at the Grove while at a convention and it was very convenient to hotel. Our only issue was it was very noisey, which can be expected when there is a convention.
Food was great and the value for the quality and quantity was very good. Service was very promt and staff new the menu very well. Great design in the restaurant, but I wish the rooftop patio was open. Maybe it's too early for that in February/March.
Six of us were in town from California to see a family member performing at TUTS when we fell upon Grove and after reviewing the menu and photos on line we picked up our family member and the seven of us showed up for their Sunday brunch. Everyone ordered something different and all of throughly enjoyed our meals. Great service, great food, great experience!
Had a work dinner here - price was as expected for location. Steak was great and cooked to perfection. Mexican corn was yummy. We ordered the bread and butter appetizer - I’ll pass next time. I would eat there again. My co-worker went three times in one week - he loved it.
We made a reservation - definitely recommend doing that.
Enjoyed service and views
First time here. And we love it! Great pick. Especially since we reserved last minute for Valentine's day! The servers were polite and respectful. Give definitely recommend this place
Really good food and service! My wife and I went on valentine's day so it was pretty packed...had to park in a garage on another street because the valet was taking too long. I think for a normal date night the menu would be more affordable, but of course on Valentine's Day, all of Houston has inflated prices for their menu. Go for a date night that doesn't have the inflated prices and you'll be set. Right on Discovery Green downtown so it's pretty neat.
Everything was great except for the food. Flat iron pork was tough and the stuffed drum fish was not filleted enough.
The Grove is good for any occasion because the food is consistently good along with good service that being said.....this is our go to spot before any events that is at the Toyota Center be it a Rockets game or concert.
Food was amazing. Beef belly was outstanding. Luckily saved enough room for dessert, incredible!
We were looking for a convenient spot for lunch before symphony matinee. Parking was not convenient unless you wanted to pay for the valet service. The food was good and a creative twist on southern food. The service was not very good at all. Waiter got my drink order wrong and the place was so noisy I can understand why. I could hardly hear him and he could hardly hear me. We waited loo long for our cocktails and barely had a chance to enjoy them before the food arrived. It seemed they were trying to rush us through so they could seat another party
Live this spot, they have very creative meals that are very tasty. My friends loved it and said they would return soon.
