Reservations not needed but they were booked for dining area. Open seating at bar and outside, so at the bar we sat. They were very busy/short staffed but we were informed on what to try by the repeat and satisfied customers sitting around us. We all thought the Redfish Crostini was quite tasty and that the Brunch Classic and Brisket... More

The Staff was friendly. The food was good. We were there during restaurant week and they ran out of some food but overall great experience

Stopped in for their Happy Hour (4 to 7 PM) with good drink selection, appetizers to choose from and good service -- during week/weekend when no event in town plenty of room available. When there are events things get a little more crowded. Had fun, some good drinks and snacks and enjoyed the Friday evening with locals getting off of... More

Very good luncheon choice and within easy walking distance of the Convention Center. Good menu choices that were a bit different and food was very good. Great wait staff.

I tried this on restaurant weeks and was very pleased. We had the three course menu. The tomato & corn salad was to die for (have made a meal of it) next was the shrimp and grits (very good), finally the pistachio doughnut to top it off. This is a place I would visit again.

The happy hour at their bar was awesome! All of the food (and yes we tried everything on the happy hour menu) was amazing. The beer and drink selection was great too.

Attended special event in a private room. Food was very good, and the view of the park spectacular. Checked the menu for individual meal pricing and thought prices were very reasonable. Will probably have a business lunch here soon.

I was not expecting this elegance downtown. Utilized the valet service which is unusual but parking is difficult, distant and long distant in many instances. Very nice menu and service. Great people watching outside. Great addition to downtown eating.

We came for a friend's birthday party and had a nice dinner together. There are plenty of food and drink options to please even the pickiest of eaters and children. We happened to come while Houston Comic-con was going on so the floor to ceiling windows made for good people watching of Discovery Green. The interior of the restaurant was... More

The Grove is one of the most special places in my heart. It's the first place my wife and I had our date and continues to serve as a reminder of our love for each other. We have arguments sometimes but we remember the beautiful time we had at the grove and that helps bring us together. Thanks!

Thank Samuel I
