What a great experience the menu was so impressive with great choices. I selected the Trio had Boar, Venison and one other type of wild animal food, it was delicious. We started with the Octopus as an appetizer, fabulous. Wine list extensive. Prices were good based on the quality. Service was another great hi lite. For sure we will return.

My dinner of Filet Minion and my wife's dinner of Ribeye were some of the juiciest steaks either of us had eaten in a... More

We had a birthday dinner to surprise my boyfriend at The Grove Steakhouse at Viejas. It was unbelievably good. The service was 5 star with our waiter wiping crumbs on to a plate for us even. The dinner was delicious. Best steak, lobster, prawns and lobster mac and cheese, cocktails, wine, wiskey and cognac that we have had in San... More

3 rd visit in the past year and each time a great experience. Located in a casino lobby so my first expectations were not very high, but changed very quickly upon being seated and experienced the excellent service and wonderful menu selection. Wine list is very nice and extremely fairly priced. Service is excellent (as previously mentioned but with saying... More

The Grove steakhouse is great for a nice dinner while gambling or for a special occasion. What a wonderful surprise in the middle of a casino out in the mountains of East County in San Diego. Wonderful service, elegant white tablecloths and stemware, wonderful steaks and a great wine list.

This place was just fabulous from beginning to end and everything in between. We had dinner here after a small business trip to El Centro. It was amazing, the staff was on point, very polite, attention to detail and luxury.

Celebrated my birthday at The Grove Steakhouse and had a wonderful "experience". Toni was our server and was very professional. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was huge, my hubby and I split the 5 ginormous shrimp. The bread and three whipped butters was a nice treat. Sorbet is served between courses, nice touch. We both had the filet, medium rare and... More

This is a very good restaurant with the right atmosphere for the perfect night out with wife or girl friend. Great food and wine menus, and just about something for every one. You may want to arrive early, for they fill up fast. Then afterwards you can play slots or go to outlet across the street. Great night out.
