I have eaten here many times. I went on a Thursday night. It was nice and quiet. The drinks were cold and the food was hot. I ordered Chicken Paillard. Wow, that is moist and spiced perfectly.

Took Grayline tour from visitor center too Grove Park Inn. Stepped over to the cafe for a bite with wife and my parents. Quick seating and service. Excellent recommendations from wait staff. Only slightly pricy considering the location, but a delicious and timely lunch for 4 with drinks for under 70 bucks before tax and tip. Was able to get... More

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Grovewood Cafe and the experience was entirely positive. Larry (the chef owner) was really easy going and cooperative, which is the main reason I chose the Grovewood. He and I went back and forth on the menu and always came to a mutually satisfactory food option. They had a really nice two... More

We had a Groupon so that is the main reason we tried Grovewood Café, and that it was located next door to Grovewood Gallery where we had decided to stop and look around. We were the first patrons there and choose a table outside. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. We started out with the soup special, Seafood Chowder, it... More

They recognize us when we visit. Interesting variety of tasty foods, including bread basket at outset. Service was excellent. Took too long this trip as they had exceptionally large party to serve. 4 of us really enjoyed this place. Comfortable to talk. Eat first, then, take walking tour of Grove Park Inn, showing it off to visitors.

I don't know about the restaurants in the Grove Park Inn because we didn't stay there, but our Red Trolley tour guide recommended the Grovewood Cafe just across from the inn, and we loved it. Beautiful fresh vegetable plate, and the best seafood corn chowder I've had in a long time. Excellent service.

Three of us had lunch there, dined outside. We weren't bowled over, in fact it was very average. The meal was basically what you might find at a mall food court.

I dined at the Grovewood Cafe twice on a recent visit to Asheville - once for dinner and once for lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is quite good and the service is warm and friendly. If I were staying at the Grove Park Inn, THIS is where I would dine! If the weather is nice, reserve a... More

Staying at the Grove Park Inn and wanted to try this charming restaurant located behind the hotel. It was just fabulous! We were the only people there on a rainy Tuesday night which concerned me. The menu is small but has choices for everyone including vegetarians. The food was great! Service was great! Portions are not large so if you... More

Joining a friend on the upper patio at Grovewood Cafe for lunch was such a treat! The surroundings were lovely and the food was delicious!! Service was attentive without interrupting our conversation. We had a delightful lunch and will return soon!
