Party of 4, the service was spectacular and the food was amazing. We started with queso and guacamole and our meals ranged from burgers to tuna. Can't go wrong with the blue crab mac-n-cheese or quesadilla. Setting was quite and very relaxing.

I enjoyed visiting the grove restaurant while at a conference at the convention center. First enjoyed it for a drink would highly recommend the ginger margaritas!

I couldn't leave Texas without trying a steak, that would make no sense. Our hotel concierge recommended The Grove, in Discovery Green and he was not wrong. I had the 18oz Cowboy rib-eye on the bone, delicious! - with some fries of course. The fries were amble but just cut too thin. The apple and walnut cake for dessert was... More

Great foodie place overlooking discovery green. Vegetarian friendly and plenty for the carnivores in the party. Decent selection of beer and a good vibe.

Party of 5 for Mother's Day. The three course meal was great and reasonably priced and the park side setting was perfect. This was my first brunch visit here and I plan to return. The eggs in purgatory was the table fav.

Finished taking a bus tour of Houston and walked over here. They were serving a 3 course pre-fixe menu for MD. Looked delicious and the price??!! $20. I couldn't believe it. My BLT sandwich with avocado and egg was the best one I have ever eaten! The bacon was jalapeno bacon and gave a slow steady burn that added to... More

Went in here for pre dinner drinks. Sitting outside a waitress dropped salsa sauce and it splashed all over my trousers and shirt. Accidents happen but it was her reaction which caused us concern. She handed me a dirty rag to wipe it off my clothes and when I protested about this went away and brought a clean damp cloth.... More

I recently ate at the Grove for a business dinner. I found the menu to be over ambitious; they complicated certain dishes with showy, overdone accents that would add nothing to the actual meal. Of course, I find this typical of any restaurant in a city downtown that is trying to be what they consider unique. That being said, I... More

It isn't easy serving a large party, but our waiter seemed to know exactly when to step in and when to hang back to avoid interfering with our conversations. People at my table ordered a variety of dishes, from fish to meat to salads, and everyone was satisfied. The waiter was subtle, but effective, in his up-selling. The group had... More

We happened upon this place while attending a convention (Convention Center is a 3 minute walk). We sat at the bar and had drinks and appetizers. If you order the Chips/Salsa/Guacamole appetizer, be ready to chow down on some absolutely outstanding guacamole, enough for 3 people easily!
