Really enjoyed this restaurant. We had a small group of 6 - great service. Ordered two of the cheese plates (goat cheese with broccoli chips and bread; and a creamy cheddar with jam) and both were delicious. A few got the chicken, one got the duck and one the beet salad and everyone was totally happy with their meals. We... More

My wife and I recently celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary with dinner at the Grove. Our waitress Tonya (sp?) and the entire staff were excellent. Very knowledgeable and took time to answer questions honestly. The food was great! Drinks were fun to try and the selections was good.

We each ordered the four course dinner because we wanted to sample a variety of dishes, and we were thrilled with our selections: carrot ginger soup, beet salad, chicken pappardelle, salmon, and the outstanding butterscotch pudding. Great service, we were seated immediately, lovely ambiance, with the patio doors open to a soft summer breeze. Highly recommended.

Went with the family and had a great dinner. Menu changes every so often. The beet salad was amazing, as was the Waygu Beef. Dessert wasn't as good as dinner but no complaints.

We traded the visual exhilaration of the Meijer sculpture garden for the gustatory exhilaration of a dinner at Grove. Everything we ate was delicious, from the complex and interesting cocktails through to the scrumptious dessert. In the tradition of Chez Panisse and the best farm-to-table restaurants that came after it, Grove presents fresh local ingredients of such quality that you... More

We had reservations for dinner. It was an unusually warm day and we sat outside. The food was very good. The drinks were on the pricey side. Our service was good. Overall I liked it but did feel it was a little overpriced.

I read an online poll that Grove was voted the number one restaurant in Michigan 2016 so I wanted to go and check it out! It was truly lovely. We had Sunday brunch I had Quiche and it was very light and full of flavor. I loved it. My friend had cornmeal fried chicken with warm potato salad and it... More

First time at the Grove. Great cocktails, great service and innovative preparations included with the entrees. It's not in-expensive but portions were fine. Sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. Surprised to have dessert on the house as it was a birthday dinner and it was very good. A very nice touch.
