My family and I visited The Grove based on numerous great reviews. Our visit however, was on the contrary. There's no host at the door (or desk/stand) so you're left to stand there until someone notices you. Our waiter, while nice, wasn't very attentive and it took us over an hour to get our food. I was hoping that the... More

There aren't a lot of choices for a reasonably priced meal near the Theater. We found the Grove to be a delicious and casual spot. You order at the back of the restaurant and then take your number to a table. The menu has a lot of options, I had the chicken tacos and others had different salads. All were... More

Popped in for lunch, had a fresh Lemonade, and one of the best BLT's I have ever had in the US, usually the bacon is too thin and crumbles, but this was made with thicker bacon that was not too crispy.

I spent an afternoon here. The food is great with a lot of healthy items on the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. The atmosphere is that of a coffee house with tables and livingroom type areas. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, be it the staff behind the register, the bus staff or the manager who circulated making sure... More

We live nearby and love this place. We had previously been to the Grove on 3rd and Mission, which is also wonderful. They have a fantastic breakfast (the breakfast burrito is honestly horrifyingly large, in a good way) and their latte is delicious. I highly recommend any of their omelettes and their breakfast burrito. I have also been here for... More

This location is OK for quick lunch out of the office. The food was prepared well but the service not so great. It is basically a self serve restaurant had to ask for some of the basics like water and ice. Overall the food was tasty, really loud and noisy eating area (so it was difficult to hear your friend...

There is a fireplace and some comfortable seating around it. Coffee is good. Sweets are pretty good. It is an upbeat place to hang out for a snack or after dinner dessert.
