An amazing brunch experience with family and friends. Service excellent and the food was incredible. A truly fabulous dining experience. Downtown Houston, a must in my next trip. I don't believe you'll be disappointed.

Pretty big restaurant located within the Discovery Green, the place is posh and expensive and the portions are pretty small, but that’s explanatory. We went there specifically for the tartar, but we also got several different dishes, everything that we tried was great but the...More

Thanks for the nice review! "Tartare" refers to the raw ground meat used in the dish, not "tartar" sauce which is a mayonnaise based sauce.

We found The Grove great value for money and the food was very good, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The guacamole was the best I have ever had, served in the biggest green chilli I have ever seen Would certainly recommend it

Yes. I was there as part of a large group. We weren't completely separated from other patrons, so it probably wouldn't be a good place to hold a meeting at which people need to listen to speakers, but we were all together... More
