The Grove Ratings and Reviews
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.
Had sweet potato soup and the smokey Caesar salad with iced tea. The soup was delicious. Was able sit by the window looking out over the park in a pleasant sunny day. The room was quiet enough for conversation. Our waiter, Eric, was attentive and did a very good job.
The location is in a bustling part of downtown so before or after dinner we could walk somewhere interesting. We were seated promptly. During dinner we were surrounded by windows. Three of our party had a salad with corn and avacado that we all thought was fantastic. The noise level was good for a group of six, neither too quiet so it felt too serious, nor too loud so we couldn't hear each other talk. Overall it was a good choice for a festive dinner.
What was once a great spot for brunch had dwindled to a mere shadow of itself.
Mango Mimosa advertised but not s mango in the building.
Dry dessert cake that begged for whipped cream and additional sources of moisture.
A waiter that was SCARED to tell my fiancé that the restaurant was out of an item.
A bar tax on the drink that we were comped when the mimosa situation turned bad.
Valet service that needs to be more careful in the tight quarters they work in
Headaches from it all.
I was really pleased with this restaurant and would definitely go back. I was in town for a meeting at the Marriot Marquis and tried to find restaurants within walking distance and that ideally had some vegan options. The Grove even had a vegan dessert (beyond just sorbet) that was really good. Was a little worried as my guests were all local to Houston so did not want to pick a restaurant that (unbeknownst to me) would have some unfavorable reputation but they seemed pleased and none had been there before.
Enjoyed a good meal with my spouse two nights ago. Very close to our hotel, and a pretty view with the trees outdoors decorated with lights. Attentive service, good wine list. The corn and avocado salad was great, and the rest of the meal did not disappoint. I wasn't planning on having dessert, but was glad I succumbed when the banana pudding tiramisu arrived.
It was just okay.
The service was not stellar nor was it memorable. The waiter had no interest in customer service he only came alive when he presented the check (like that was going to affect his tip). The food was not horrible but I've certainly had better; it was not so original like they'd like to think. I had the steak tartar and I was not impressed. There was barely any meat on a thick piece of toast with lots of horseradish sauce. Perhaps that was the "american" version of steak tartar but it certainly was not impressive. The restaurant is lovely in atmosphere and very well situated near GRB and downtown, however not enough for me to return.
