This is a nice boutique style place for couples lunch or business lunch. The food is excellent. I would suggest the quesadilla and fresh guacamole. Also the snapper and steak frites is very tasty. I would not bring kids.

I love this place, and I've recently eaten there twice in one week. Once while I was at the quilt show in the George R Brown (went across the street and ate at the Grove) and then a second time when I went to the Toyota Center for the Adele concert. Both times, the food was delicious, with great service.... More

Went for business lunch. Did not have reservation. But good get a table. They serve peanuts in a small cup. Keep munching and the waiter gets water. I ordered beet humus which is served with bread. Ordered a vegetarian cauliflower plate that is served with rice. Both dishes were delicious. Slightly expensive but worth it.

We had tickets to a Rockets game so we valeted our car and had dinner. Our snapper was very well prepared, we had different white wines and great desserts. We then walked two blocks to the Toyota center for a Rockets game. It was reasonably priced and memorable.

We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of the park. I had the burger which turned out to be the best burger I have ever eaten! Still thinking about it...

Conveniently located near the convention center, I enjoyed two meals here in two days. Handled large parties with ease, the service was wonderful. The food was also good...I ordered the shrimp and corn which was great fodder when they arrived "smiling at me" just like the Christmas story. Sometimes I shouldn't drink at lunch...

That is all I really need to say. Visited there twice during my stay. First visit was seated outside. Nice night and great service. The beat salad, and salmon deviled eggs were amazing. Send time was a business group dinner. Impeccable service and food. The beat salad was so good the first time, I had it again, along with rib... More

Recently had a business meeting at the nearby Hilton and came here to The Grove for a quick lunch. Had my car parked at the Hilton's valet and was a great day for a short walk, and hoofed it over. Although I didn't use the valet here, I wonder if it's the same group as the Hilton? The Valet had... More

I visited for an early dinner on a Tuesday evening. The wait staff were very attentive. The wine and food were excellent. The gulf shrimp, bread, and Cesar salad made my dinner a joy.

Absolutely out of this world truffle fries! Casual, upbeat, and modern. Happy hour M-F 4-7 and Sunday 3-9. We simply ate at the bar or patio during happy hour. The Grove Sliders melted in our mouths! The waitstaff is fast and smart!
