“Good food, a tad pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place. Good service, good view and the food was ok. It's just a tad pricey, probably because it is close to the convention center

I had the burger and it was pretty good. Nothing gourmet about it but it was well cooked

The place can get busy during conventions so make reservations if you're in town for a convention

“Very good food - hits the spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I've been here several times; always hits the spot. Always fresh and tasty. Quick, friendly (non-snooty) service. Only complaint is it seems a bit pricey.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

My family went there for a quick meal before registration at the convention center. The hamburger there is amazing. Yelp has this priced at $$ but it is a little upscale so make sure you are decently dressed and not completely sweaty because you will feel out of place. The rotisserie chicken dish was not bad, but it was something I feel I could have made just as good at home, but I just wanted to make sure I could share with my son and it seemed like a big dish (and it was). I would suggest something else if you are looking to try new things. The hamburger and fries though, are so so good. Great quality of meat and the fries are perfect. Nothing wrong at all with that dish.

“Great Food and location from Convention Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I recently enjoyed 2 meals at The Grove in Houston - lunch and dinner. The salad was quite large and delicious for lunch - Chicken Caesar, and I had a delicious dinner - Salmon and the service was excellent. They went out of their way to make it a very enjoyable experience. The close proximity to the Convention Center makes this an excellent choice for a very good meal!

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very pretty restaurant with fresh dishes. The water was exceptional making sure to make eye contact to see if things were needed without interrupting our conversation.

Only issue we had was the volume level of the party they had going on in the back part of the restaurant. They were having a great time, but the noise transferred into the dining area where we sat.
