We had lunch here on a Saturday....the location is great for George R Brown Events! Our meal started with fresh guacamole ....it was great, as were the chips that went with it! My tortilla soup was very thin and watery....it was vegan, but it was flavorful. I also ordered Sourdough bread with butter....it was $5....... But at most restaurants would... More

This is a great place for a girls night or romantic evening! The food was fantastic, with wonderful flavor combinations. Good for those with adventurous palates as well as for those who like their meals tasty but traditional. I absolutely love their cocktail menu! Service is ok there. I've been there twice and both times I would say I was... More

The Grove's private dining area is upstairs - The Treehouse - and encompasses both indoor and outdoor areas. Lovely area. We had a pre fixe menu of corn chowder, salad, rotisserie chicken with vegetables and Italian bread. It was all fresh, hot when served and very tasty. Definitely want to go back for dinner some time!

We called for a table on our way, got a cagey answer, but when we arrived there were several tables available. Once we were seated all was well.

This restaurant is very close to the Brown Convention Center. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with wonderful soft lighting and is tastefully decorated with art pieces. It was just a bit too noisy on the evening that we dined there. The service was excellent and the wait staff were very helpful and attentive. I had the catch of the... More

Fancy style and nice location directly at the Houston convention center and the Hilton. Had a nice working lunch on the deck with a view of the adjescent park. Great to for some relaxed conversation in between a conference. After dinner the bar offered some nice venue for a drink.

We ate here during a conference at the George R. Brown convention center. The restaurant was right across the street from the hotel. It is a little loud inside. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was very good, but not outstanding. Service was excellent. The menu diverse with a good selection of deserts.

Had a few drinks and lunch here. Love the "eat in the park" feel, very urban atmosphere in the restaurant and modern food presentation. Food was excellent, good variety to choose from. Waiter and Bartender were awesome (we sat at the bar). Excellent drinks, perfect Mohito!!

We stopped in after a trade show. our group was seated quickly and our waitress was fantastic. we all had a variety of dishes and everyone was happy. I enjoyed the redfish BLT and would highly recommend it. It was fun to people watch along with a great meal.
