The great cocktails and the kale Caesar salad are amazing!! (I dream of them in between visits!)
Regina is a friendly hostess who always remembers my daughter and her fiancé so it feels so welcoming when we come in.
First off all, staff make is so hard and weird to get a table. I made the request outside, so they explain that we can go on the second floor but they will not going to serve. Then what's the point to go there. So we just sit outside, and feel like i'm in simple coffee shop. It's really disappointing.
Been looking to go for a few years. Had a chance to go with my twin.
Meh. Food bland. Same decor as everywhere else. Maybe covid is to blame.
Perfect place to celebrate a milestone birthday. Great choice!
We ate outside in October. When night fell, they brought us a small, lit globe. It was beautiful. The crowd from the attractions at Discovery Green were close enough to see and hear, but far enough that there was still plenty of privacy and quiet. The service was exceptional. The food was amazing. It was a bit pricy, but well-worth it. Try the water!! They distill in-house. It’s fantastic!
The food was amazing! The service was even better. Beautiful restaurant. Will definitely return
The hostess didn't seem to be too friendly but our server Rick more than made up for it. We sat outside downstairs and the only thing I can say that was bad was the ants and flies. I would come back and maybe sit inside
The Grove never disappoints! Had a wonderful evening!
We sat outside so the noise level was low. The food, wine, and the service was 100% spot on! Thank you. We will be back.
Great happy hour on patio!
Great place to eat outside and people watch! The weather was perfect! Definitely order the bread and butter -- it's amazing! Everything else was good too. Lots of sights to see from the porch.
Awesome spot always! Always super friendly and great ambiance
Server was good however the servers delivering plates were brusque to the point of rudeness. All service excruciatingly slow and the kitchen took over fifteen minutes to deliver small salad, and prepared desserts. Entres took over 40 minutes. Valet left a car blocking entrance and took key away from the site, causing a fifteen minute delay to exit. Have eaten at this restaurant multiple times in the past and will not return
Food was not anything special and service was ok, not great.
The Restaurant Week menu was outstanding
The food was decent but the service and atmosphere was great
We initially reserved for a patio table but it rained so we had to move inside. Otherwise, it was a perfect evening with great service, beautiful views, and amazing food!
Dining at the Grove is always a magical experience. The food is great, but the setting next to Discovery Green is magical. I wish I lived closer.
Unfortunately, we were told they weren’t expecting soo many people. Second outdoor table to arrive. Waited 25 minutes for bottle of high end champagne. Same for shrimp cocktail. Filet cooked 1.5 temps above desired and over seasoned, likened to either a rookie diner cook or covering up poor quality of steak.
Received scripted apology from manager and cost removed.
Ambience was very nice and obvious our server was over booked but still apologetic and did her best.
We may give them a chance for a make up.
We are sincerely grieved to know that your experience fell so short of not only your expectations, but ours, as well. Our reputation (and reviews) for impeccable service and incredible food precedes us and is our top priority, so to know that we did not deliver the same for you is very disappointing. We would love to make it right and show you what everyone is raving about! Please reach out to our GM Jody Fiess to set something up.
Date night with the wife. We had not been out in so long so it was so nice to have such a great meal. We had great service, great food and wine and an excellent atmosphere while eating on the patio. Everyone was super nice. The Grove is a Houston treasure everyone should frequent so they stick around!
I am still thinking about the avocado toast days later!
the beet humus was excellent; not normally a fan of beets but would definitely order again
Wife and I did the three course meal very good flavors, combination and portions very nice. Definitely coming back
Everything thing at the restaurant was fantastic but the food wasn't really seasoned well...I had the the lobster crab and shrimp wrap with the side of steak fries...the season on the wrap could've have been better. The steak fries was supposed to have a taste a sea salt to it. I couldn't taste it...an my lovely date had the double meat burger with the side of steak fries an she had the same issue with her order as well...but overall it was a good experience.
No vegetarian options. Could be more creative with the menu.
Sat outside with a lot of flies. Most disappointing was that I had put a note in celebrating a special occasion and no one asked us what the occasion was or offered us a complementary dessert.
We came for lunch during Houston Restaurant Weeks after not going anywhere for months during the COVID crisis. We were fully prepared to leave if it didn't feel like a safe place, but happily - it was! They took every precaution imaginable, the service was perfect, and the food delicious. We'll be back again. If you go for lunch get the Fish BLT, my husband and I were fighting over it!
This was my second time dining there and I loved it.!!
Great happy hour great service.
The food was just ok and the chicken was too salty. Both the grilled chicken on a salad and the chicken entree as well. My daughter couldn’t even eat her meal it was so salty. That item was not included in our bill, but I just expected more.
This restaurant is very pretty and set inside Discovery Green park. Service was great, food was great. Portions are a little small.
Food was delicious. The staff was great. I felt very safe.
The Redfish and Cauliflower dinners were on point. Erik our waiter was terrific and made me glad we chose the Grove to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Even after receiving a confirmation of my reservation, the restaurant was closed. Very upsetting.
Fantastic - EJ is a world class server - He made our experience wonderful
Started with beet hummus, had the gnocchi, partner had salmon, finished with kufti gelato. Coffee is French press (important to me). I’m not vegetarian but entree was so they cater to all diets. Loved it all!
The food was superb, the service was impeccable. We were entertaining an out of town guest and they were very impressed with everything.
First time eating brunch there and the food was amazing! Service was fast when we got there but slowed significantly as the time went on. But nothing that would keep us from going back. It did get busier also.
The food was served lukewarm...even our neighbors stated the same. The Filet Mignon was really carne asada. Overpriced and won't go back with so many others to choose from.
