Perfect if you're staying next door at the Hilton!

I joined my husband in Houston for the weekend after his business conference ended. He had dined at The Grove already, and since I arrived in the evening at the Hilton, we walked to the Grove for dinner. The cocktails, wine, salads, entrees, service and decor were all great - and that view of the... read more

Excellent restaurant for business lunches or before concerts and games at Toyota Center. Service is very good and they always have unique dishes on the menu at this Robert Del Grande restaurant. Most of the time you can get fresh seafood and creative Tex-Mex food. Their hamburgers are really first class. The hostess, Madeline, is great at accommodating your seating... More

Visited The Grove before attending a concert at The Toyota Center. The menu is creative and we found everything to be exquisitely prepared. Such a lovely dinner looking out over Discovery Green. The servers were attentive but not intrusive. Good selection of wines & beers. Noted that diners near us were raving about their cocktails......might have to explore one next... More

We ate early dinner there outside as we had my toddler grandson. The food was awesome, waitress and staff were very attentive to us and it was a beautiful night to eat outdoors! We were able to people watch and hear the concert coming from Discovery Green. The inside of the restaurant is very elegant and I believe they have... More

The Grove was my first stop for a meal during my first trip to Houston. It's located in downtown Houston's gorgeous Discovery Green. I was part of a party of about 20 people, but it did not incumber our service- it was excellent. The deviled eggs appetizer was delicious as was the guacamole. I truly enjoyed the gulf shrimp with...

So I'm not a big bloody mary fan, but my wife is. So I took her here while we were visiting Houston. The bloody marys here are a meal. Bacon.. shrimp.. veggies.. She says it's the best bloody mary she's ever had. I had a few sips of hers and I will agree. The others drinks here were okay, but... More

The Grove is across the street from the Hilton-Americas where we stayed. On the other side of The Grove is Discovery Park, a large greenspace in downtown Houston. The park reminded us of Central Park in NYC but much smaller. We sat on the patio and enjoyed people watching in the park. We enjoyed a glass of wine and selections... More

Nice little bar in the park across from the Hilton Americas. The beer was nice and cold and the bartenders were pleasant. A great place to people watch and spend some time with friends.

Gorgeous restaurant with friendly and accommodating service. Both the cocktail and dinner menus had a wide variety of high-quality choices. It was perfect for a romantic date night, and I can't wait to go back.
