“Well-deserved Cleveland Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Grovewood Tavern is a Cleveland Institution... truly a diamond in the rough. The food is outstanding; worth the trip. The Blackened Scallop appetizer was amazing; rich buttery cilantro-lime-tequila cream sauce: not too thick, a little sweet, a little kick, perfectly balanced and just great. The Blackened Diver Scallop entree was just as yummy, served in another beautiful ancho-honey cream sauce. The scallops were large, fresh and perfectly prepared. Hubby enjoyed the (crab) Cake & Steak. Glad I took the advice of our very knowledgeable server...Get the Scallops!!

“Neighborhood Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Food was excellent and the service was exceptional. She was very aware of the menu and had great knowledge of the specials. My son had duck and said it was the best he has had. Hubby had the tuna and I had the baby back ribs (that was the special). My only complaint is that the grits were not very good. They were very dry and bland. I'm not a huge fan of grits so I wasn't that disappointed, but I have had much better grits than those. Other than that I would highly recommend giving this place a try.

“Great food & diverse menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The food was excellently prepared and the menu was far more diverse than I expected. There were a number of items on the menu for vegetarians and vegans as well as a full selection of meat, fish and pasta dishes. The service was great - our server made knowledgeable recommendations on food and wine when asked. We were seated and served quickly - even on a busy Friday night though I would recommend reservations if you have a party of 4 or more.

“Always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I've probably ordered 80% of the menu items, and thought highly of each. If you like duck, the quackatori and cherry duck are both excellent, and you can never go wrong with the blackened scallops. PS: I've eaten the steak, never a physical reaction. They don't use flavor enhancers.
