Good food and service.

Went here for a private party. Service was great! Food was very good, actually much better than expected. I would definitely go back!

My husband and I visited The Grove for dinner before an 8 pm showing of Phantom of the Opera. We enjoyed the cocktails, specifically the pineapple orchid with house-infused vodka. However, every appetizer, entree and and side we ordered was severely under seasoned. The presentation was beautiful and I appreciated the sustainable sourced seafood and organic greens but was in...

The view of discovery green park was delightful. The restaurant has unique combinations and items. Their rooftop garden and local suppliers are prominent throughtout the menu. It tooks us awhile to order since we asked many questions about the menu. We all enjoyed the guacamole which had their spin. They were very accomodating to a food allergy and brought crudites...

We had been at this place years ago (when service was good), and just went on sunday november 8th (at around 1:30pm). We wanted to sit at the beautiful patio to have a drink, but there were no tables available. There were however, chairs available. So, we decided to have a drink (we were just 2 people) and sit at...

This is an upscale beautiful restaurant. It has huge windows that look out over a nice area of downtown Houston. There are high ceilings which really add to the ambiance. We were a group of 21 people and they worked really quickly to accommodate us. They bring peanuts to your table as you sit down. The staff is attentive and... More

I was delighted with the vegetarian options on this mixed menu and even more pleased with the quality of the taste of the dishes - to the end result that I visited this restaurant 3 times in 6 days! Warm welcome and great service - though better in the main restaurant than in the bar area (they were very busy... More

Enjoyed the service from our waiter and the food was ultra delicious regardless what you selected. After lunch, we walked around the discovery center to help walk off all the good food we ate. It was much fun and I will come back again and again.

I was just at a conference in Houston and was lucky enough to eat here several times. I was overwhelmed. The food was delicious. There were plenty of vegetarian options. But most striking was the ORIGINALITY in both the options themselves and in their presentation.

Enjoyed our dinner at The Grove. The Salmon and wedge salad was excellent and the service good. A bit too much like a cafe for me in terms of decor though. Good night however.

I took my collegue for lunch. Waited to much. Needed to keep calling the waiter attention, the food was spicy as hell. Sitting was uncomfortable. Loud place. Would not go again.
