Beautiful setting and delicious food

Thee were three of us in our party, and we all loved what we ordered. The carnitas tacos and spicy corn side dish were delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. It was our best meal of the trip to Houston.

A beautiful location convenient to the convention center. I would recommend reservations as it is quite busy. The food was wonderful and creative. They grow the vegetables on the roof of the restaurant.. so they are very fresh. Worth a visit1

I say the food can be good, if it is served in time. We have dined here several times had 2 poor experiences before 2 concerts.... More

When visiting Houston, enjoyed eating here three times, twice for lunch, once for supper. Had the Shrimp & Crab Salad Roll, the Fresh Catch Tacos and ended with the Scallops for my last supper there. Each meal was dimensional in flavor, though I preferred the first two to the scallops. These are not Texas sized portions and it is a... More

The Grove is a trendy joint located in s beautiful park across from the Houston Convention Center. It is modern and full of natural light. Menu items are fresh and include a wide mix of flavors, colors, and textures I enjoyed all aspects of my meal while watching children, families, and conference goers enjoy a beautiful day at a park....

I was staying downtown for a convention and met a group here for dinner. I was not expecting much since it was in a tourist area. Instead, i had a great experience. Booth was spacious. My lamb was tender and wonderful. Cocktails were original and nice. Service was great - waiter was properly attentive and had helpful suggestions. Would be... More

Had the salmon which was excellent and server actually asked and delivered on the customer request for doneness, I like my salmon medium rare. But the vegetable melange topper puts this dish over the top!

The food was pretty good... I had the grilled fish tacos which were good, and my husband had the rotisserie chicken which was really tasty. But no sides come with the tacos, and for $20, I would've expected a bit more I guess. Beautiful place though.
