Had a great time with friends here on a Sunday afternoon with friends. Drinks, pupus, and a cute waiter...who could ask for more?

We spent this meal eating a variety of dishes and sharing among our table. Several friends advised me against returning to The Grove, but we went anyway. The food we had was delicious and full of flavor. We liked: Mushroom Salad Hot Brussels Sprout Salad Flatbread Mushrooms in wine sauce Salmon (amazingly delicious) And more..... The Grove is still good!

Thanks so much to the Grove for holding my step daughter's wedding on the 30th of May. It all went perfectly. The food was great and service excellent. It's amazing what you can organise from so far away. 😊

My wife and I were seated immediately outside in the lovely deck area on a Friday evening. We arrived with a couple minutes left of the "Shady Hour" (happy hour) and our server made extra effort to ensure we got orders in during this discounted time. The cheese tray appetizer was just one mediocre jam short of an 'A', but... More

Met a friend while visiting here in Oahu. Nothing spectacular. Service left a lot to be desired. Flatbread pizza tasted as if it was from a box.

The Grove provides a great atmosphere, upbeat and lively if you are in Kailua. The food is an international flair and is really, really good. It is a little expensive, but worth the money. Cocktails were also awesome and the staff was friendly.

We like the laid-back atmosphere, the live music, the outdoor seating AND the good food. A varied menu with always a couple of fresh seafood dishes and good pu-pus. We have also brought our well behaved, small dogs with us and had no complaints from the staff or patrons. We dine here about once a month and look forward to... More

Dropped in for dinner last week. The service was good, the drinks were ok. We ordered some appetizers. The Salmon Dip was heavy but delicious!! The Steamed Manila clams were good, nothing special. I had the Warm Brussels Sprouts salad as an appetizer and the Kiawe Smoked Chicken as my main dish. I should have went with the Brussels Sprouts... More

We had a reservation and were going to be about 15 minutes late, so I called and was told they'd hold our table, and then when we got there 15 minutes late, were told it would be about a 10 minute wait. If you don't want to hold the table, it's fine, but don't say you'll hold it and then... More

Went to Grove on a date with my fiancée. Interior atmosphere is that of a dated family diner - so we decided to sit outdoors, which is much more pleasant. Pole and fish entree was second to none, along with garlic edamame. Ribs were forgettable, similar rub to a Kansas City sweet variety and were somewhat dry, which they tried... More
