We had a fabulous dinner at Grove recently. First time in GR and picked Grove based on Tripadvisor reviews and the fact that they offer a prix fixe menu which is one of our favorite ways to dine. It's a small restaurant, and even with reservations, we were initially seated at a tiny table near the kitchen, up against a... More

Truly enjoyed our dinner out at The Grove. Went with the taste of The Grove option as well as the wine pairings. The menu has a wide variety of options so shouldn't be difficult to please most visitors. All the wait staff were very friendly. Our waitress was very helpful in making suggestions and answering all our questions regarding the... More

I found this restaurant by searching on Trip Advisor. It's definitely worth trying; well above average. In fact, one dish I had, the fish stew, was truly outstanding. The broth had a rich flavor, with just the right amount of seasoning and just the right amount of tomato in the broth. If you've ever had a rich fish broth, you... More

I believe this was one of the best meals I have ever had. They have a 3 course dinner for $38 and it was so worth it. We were told the food was excellent but never expected the quality and value we received. Highly, highly, recommend.

I stumbled across this restaurant as I was doing a local brewery tour. I had hit up Brewery Vivant next door, and this place came highly recommended. The Maitre D was super rude, but I made it to the bar where I was welcomed with smiles. I had the Pork three ways... Oh lord. It was delicious. You have to... More

The food here is absolutely fantastic. Each menu item is unique and balanced with a complexity of flavors that is indescribable. Staff is friendly and helpful. This food is worth the price you pay for it with the farm to table concept and daily menu changes. We will definitely be back as this is by far my new favorite restaurant.... More

Grove is a fantastic farm to table experience. The menu changes daily based on what is in season. The chef's tasting menu is the best way to try a number of dishes in one meal. The wine list is equally impressive and the servers know how to make a great recommendation. I have been back many times and will go... More

Took my family for a birthday celebration. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The quality of food is excellent and is obviously prepared by a talented chef. I recommend the (3) course plan which gives you a great selection of dishes. I had the braised pork tacos, seafood stew and great lakes... More

This restaurant is fantastic! The "earth-to-table" cuisine features locally-sourced, sustainable farms as much as possible. The food is artfully presented and delicious! Get the three course meal with wine pairing. One reason that I love this restaurant is that they handle my numerous food intolerances so well! The manager added a standing note to my reservation with this ten item... More
