This was our 3rd time at the Grove in the past 2 years. Whenever we visit GR we try and eat here. They open at 5pm sharp and there was a line to get in. Reservations are a must or you can eat at the bar. You can enjoy several small plates or an app and main course. The wine... More

I live in Grand Rapids. Always thought the Grove was excellent but high priced. The menu has 3 levels of price to go with small, medium, larger plates. The prices were reasonable and appropriate for the size. The food was fantastic and interesting. You appreciate the flavors in every bite. We left very satisfied with 2 courses. Staff was very...

While it's pricey I'd never felt like I was taken advantage of until our last visit when my wife ordered a mixed drink and I ordered a Scotch -- it was a nice drink from... More

The food selection is very well covered for the range of selection. The quantity is more European, which is s nice touch. But hands down, the deserts are awesome . The appetizers are also to die for. Great service and staff. A definite have to stop and check it out
