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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Ceviche had the right blend of ingredients and delightfully spicy. Gulf fish in parchment paper was unexpectedly delicious and exceeded expectations in both quality and quantity of fish. Chicken quesadilla had different ingredients than normal (i.e. baby mushrooms) but worked well together, was a little small though for the price.
