Outstanding

Everything about our dining experience was excellent. We were greeted warmly, every course of the meal was delicious and creative, and the staff was very attentive. I had the octopus for the first course, ramen for the second and quail for the entree...all exceptional.

My family and I came here for Easter dinner and it was a great time to go because there was barely anyone there. I had the pasta appetizer, it was a little dry and lacking creativity visually but it was okay, I probably wouldn't order it again. My brother had the "biscuits and gravy" and he didn't really like it.... More

The restaurant has a great ambiance and terrific food. The staff was warm and friendly and the service was great. We had a large group of 8 people and it went very smoothly. Everyone was delighted with the choices they ordered from the menu and they were flavors that were unique and tasty. They had a nice variety of desserts... More

I came here for restaurant week which had a special for 3 courses for $28. But normally my coconut dumplings, fried quail and the fudge dessert would of cost around $50. But it was a great meal. Top 10 I've ever had probably. The quail had some blueberry sauce which went so well with the quail. The vegetables were a... More

A worthwhile stop in gr. Make a reservation. Tasting meal with mix and match courses was excellent. Seafood was tremendous. Care and attention in preparation was evident and demonstrated professionalism in the kitchen. Wine selection was good as were the creatively named and precisely executed cocktails. Service was smart and good at listening and engaging just enough. Worth you working... More

We had a wonderful evening with our group of 8 family members last Saturday at the Grove. We tried their special 3 course meals which gave us enough selections to choose from. Food was innovative and well prepared. Service was excellent. Great place for special occasions. Highly recommended.

We went as a large group which always changes the experience. The food experience was excellent. Cocktails were excellent and a drink menu was extensive.

GM Jill and her Team to a consistently great job. Only good place in GR to have a broadly stocked vegetarian menu, too. Very good, every time, always fun and a good crowd. Have a drink at the bar, sit outide when possible (those tables cannot be booked).

Oh my goodness, if you have $100 to blow on dinner, don't go anywhere else. Grove's menu changes either weekly or nightly, and they use the freshest ingredients to craft tasty meals you cannot afford to miss. There is an ongoing special which allows you to pick two small plates (think an appetizer and a soup or salad) and an... More
