Been here a few times now; food always imaginative, tastes great and as requested. Kitchen is flexible and open to requests like "no dairy". Friendly staff knowledgable on what is on offer. Let loose and ask for a wine recommendation - surprises lurk in the wine rack!

Very small restaurant with limited seating, a bit crowded feeling for some perhaps, but we felt the size created an intimate dining experience. The staff was excellent, full of honest suggestions, always there to assist you without hovering over you. The menu is not extensive but it is creative. The food is absolutely excellent, fresh ingredients, interesting combinations, always a... More

I've been to this place many times and it never disappoints. It's quaint, it's inviting. It's the perfect intimate setting to have a special time out with loved ones. Their menu is quite unique and changes often. They have a little bit of everything and it's always ridiculously delicious. There is so much talent coming out of that kitchen! I'm... More

The new winter 2015 menu does it again! I am always amazed at how Groovys takes a delicious twist on classic dish. I had the tuna melt (which was out of this world!) and my lunch date had the feature burger (always his go-to, and never disappoints). The new bar area is great – makes it really comfortable to pop... More

Restaurant is very small....walked in and we were seated near the door. The waitress who took our order seemed to lack personality and any type of charm. The white wine was served in a large Merlot style wine glass...I may sound snobby...but really?!?! I ordered the stuffed chicken that arrived both "dry" and "unstuffed". I requested additional gravy and asked... More

I had the opportunity to have lunch on the run today at Groovy Tuesday and what an experience it was. Presentation was great, large portions and food was fresh and tasty. The quality of food doesn’t get better. You will not be disappointed.

Best burger ever!!! Naan bread pizza with figs, steak and chèvre was delicious. Creative soups (pear, parsnip and spinach today), interesting salads and lots of tasty appetizers. The atmosphere is cozy but bright and the bar is perfect for a drink and a snack. Come here, you won't be disappointed! It was a lovely way for my husband and I... More

Small, busy, noise no bother, service great, food scrupulous, tasty, the overworked great waiter Brent recommended from my given 1,2 choice, appetizer delicious, main more delicious ( seasonal Spinach Bon Bon - Wow ), dessert simple brownie and their peanut butter ice cream a good end. My taste bubs were treated to a memorable taste sensation. Will recommend this establishment.
