    I can’t actually say anything about the food, as we left before we sat down. I had made a reservation for two at 7:00pm and specified that it was for a birthday. I answered three or four follow up emails and texts affirmatively - “Yes, we’re gonna be there.” We arrived at seven and, after muttering between the host and hostess, he disappeared, and she said, “He’s gone to clear your table. It’ll be five minutes. Five minutes later he reappeared and led us past three or four empty tables in the main dining room and into an enormous, empty, separate party room with two or three giant tables all set up for a party of thirty or forty, and two two tops along one wall. He offered us one of the two tops. We were crestfallen, and said it looked like we’d soon be in the middle of a giant party, and, until then, in isolation. Not at all the birthday restaurant ambience we were expecting. I asked when the party was due, and he said, “Oh, probably not for an hour or so.” I asked if we could have one of the open four tops in the main room, as there was at least one other couple at another adjacent four top. “No,” he told me, “We’re saving those for a party of seven.” (“The party of seven couldn’t go back in the empty party room?” I asked myself.) My wife, the birthday girl, was disappointed and getting angry at this point. I asked her what she’d like to do, and she indicated that she’d rather just leave. So we did. We won’t be going back.

    Came with a reservation and were still sat alone in the awkwardly silent back room despite having open tables up front, with our only other option being outside in 100° weather. Food was average- every dish either lacking flavor or containing too much salt. After a few visits I can conclude that this is not a place worth revisiting in my future.

    Tried this for a girl's night after enjoying a previous visit at The Grove's Lakeway site. Food was excellent and a good value. Overall, just little things made this a good, not great experience. Bummed we missed Happy Hour by a few minutes when not greeted promptly; reading the complex wine options on the phone rather than a menu works, but it is annoying and changes the experience of eating out an putting away screens. We had a few other things like a rocking table that were promptly addressed, but overall, it was a nice, not awesome evening.

    My best friend from college and I had dinner at the Grove on 6th Street last night and had an outstanding experience. The service was superb and the wine and meal were incredible. She ordered the flounder, which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I had the crabcake, which was served with a delicious aioli sauce. We both started with the wedge salad, which was beautifully presented and very tasty. Just the right amount of blue cheese and bacon. I highly recommend the Grove!

    Gluten free fried okra— I was in heaven! Not greasy either. How do they do that? Brussels sprouts—what deliciousness is this? Wow! The chicken with mashed potatoes and spinach also a hit. We ate outdoors and it was a tad warm out there. Misters, please?

    I was disappointed by the service here. I sat at the bar close to 9pm which I realize is late, but I note that because there weren’t many people and if anything I would have thought the bartender would be all over me to finish so she could leave. I got the ahi tuna salad to start which was a good portion, but it could have used a bit more flavor. I got the Parmesan crusted flounder which was also a very good sized piece of fish and the grits were yummy.

    I came for Sunday brunch. The mimosas were very affordable. Also had the bruschetta, bacon wrapped quail, wedge salad, and forbidden rice bowl. Everything was delicious. Service was also very good - the server gave off a relaxed and casual atmosphere yet he was also nice and professional.

    My wife and I went to The Grove for brunch on Sunday. Although we had a reservation and there were several available tables, we seemed to have taken them by surprise that we were there. We waited several minutes before we were seated. Our waiter came to take our drinks order, acted very indifferent and frankly bored. My wife’s first choice for drink was not available which was OK although unusual. My first choice of entree was not available. So I ordered something else. Still no show of interest by our waiter. The food was delivered by a runner but mine was not the correct entree. When I told him that it was not what I ordered he left it on the table and told me to rake it up with our waiter. In the meantime our waiter was in a deep discussion with another waiter and although he could see me waving to him he only came to our table after he finished his discussion. He acknowledged that it was not what I ordered but wanted to know if I would want to eat it anyway (still no interest, no apologies) and somewhat not happy when I said no. He did however say he would comp my bloody although it would have been nice to Hear an apologies. It took awhile for me to get my order and by then my wife had almost finished hers. I have to say the food was good. The table next to us was extremely loud to the point we could hear each other but that is not the restaurant’s fault. May be our waiter was having an off day. At least that is what my wife believes. Because of that I tipped him 15% instead of my usual 20%. Hopefully he does not have many off days. I will give The Grove another try because it has the potential of being a great place.

    One of the more recent exceptional service experiences we have had in awhile. We sat in the bar area and our bartender was one of the most efficient and understanding guy. We had concert tickets and let him know 6:30pm had to be our departure time, we needed our different food requests to come out with in a hour and a half. Everything was right on time. His knowledge of food and wine was excellent. We will return when his is working without a doubt,,food excellent, and the Brussel sprouts was a different version not had before. Very tasty!

    Had a great time @ the Grove Downtown.. Great service, and the food is excellent -- it was a very lively night - lots of people -- the noise level was a tad louder than I would have liked, but it is what it is. Our waiter was great, very attentive. Checkout @ the table is super easy & they make splitting a check very simple process. I'm not really into wine - had a peach pear margarita - was delicious! I mostly go for the food, not the wine.

    Felt overpriced for what we got. The wines were well priced and good. The food was pretty awful and not worth the price at all. We ordered 4 different things and each was more disappointing than the last. The food felt either way underseasoned or wayyy overseasoned. And cheap. Like frozen fish and pre-made crap. Not fresh. The patio was hot and dirty. Plastic chairs, dirty tables, no real menus, etc. It was like fast casual (Chipotle, Modern Market) dining but with a nicer restaurant pricetag. We won't be returning.

    Our experience at The Grove was very pleasant. The patio/deck is a very nice spot for dinner even on a very hot evening in Austin. The staff is very helpful in explaining menu options, very nice, and accommodating. We began with the choose 3 bruschetta appetizer: we chose the tomato/basil/ mozzarella, the Italian sausage/red pepper, and the strawberry/goat cheese/ balsamic. Each is very tasty. My partner had the steak salad, which was a good-sized portion of both steak and salad. A slight different combo of veggies than an average steak salad, so a nice change. I had the roasted chicken with potatoes, a nicely done staple dish.
