Walked in on a random late afternoon after doing business in the area, just to pass the time. Quiet time in mid-to-late afternoon and very nice spot and time to pass the time away. Bartender makes good drinks, reasonable priced for a big city downtown location, food I had was good, and easy to relax and plan business activities.

Food was good, they have good Chorizo Quesadillas, and beef steak tartare with lots of flavor but the hot toast and cold beef wasn't exactly my preferred thing. The place has good prices on beer and beer selection, just moments away from hotels and other diners. The Hilton was right across the street, you can't get lost. You will need... More

Met a long time friend here for dinner and drinks. Place is nice and there is a lot to see and do in the area. The service we received was terrible and slow and there was no excuse because it was not that busy in there. I was not a fan of the food. What I ordered was suggested by... More

Attended a party for a friend. Atmosphere is great. I got the rice bowl minus the cilantro and it was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Will definitely go back.

Really cool spot downtown with good drinks. The pineapple rum drink (their homemade specialty) was very tasty! Upscale atmosphere with a nice look out onto the Discovery Green. We didn't have any food there but it looked delicious- would eat there next time!

The Grove has a flavorful and creative menu with beautiful views of Discovery Green Park. We ate upstairs in the treehouse area and the service was well done too. I highly recommend a stop at The Grove for lunch or dinner.

I brought a group of clients here for a dinner while at a conference. The service, menu selection, and experience in general were highly praised by all. My food was good - cooked well, with excellent preparation and presentation. The only downside was the dessert menu. I got the banana pudding tiramisu, and it wasn't that good. The entire dessert...

A nice evening meal with not too huge portions as is often the case in Texas. I had fish - grouper - and it was delicious and not too huge. It was a Monday night and the place was humming - fun atmosphere and great food!
