My husband and I went to Grove for my birthday on July 3rd. It was a Sunday, and the brunch menu was outstanding! I highly recommend making a reservation for any meal here. We had the carrot ginger soup, which was phenomenal, and for my free birthday dessert, the carrot donut holes with cream cheese glaze. I can't even tell... More

A lot of people like the eccentric food, but not for me. Tha atmosphere is good, but I found it tough to find an entree I was excited about.

We love to go there as the menu changes all the time. Have a cocktail with a drunken cherry. It is always a good idea to get a meal with three courses and it's quite a price break. Very fresh always very good

We are never disappointed with our experience at Grove! We just enjoyed their "restaurant week" menu, which was fabulous. We expected only a few choices and smaller portions, but to our surprise, they offered a great variety to choose from and full portions served. Simply delicious! We allowed Julie, our wonderful server, to select the wine pairings, and it was... More

I had the chance to stop into Grove with my significant other during GR Restaurant week. This is a fixed price menu where 3 dishes are served for $28 - so a good value at Grove. We started at the bar where I had the best sazerac I've ever had outside of New Orleans...$16 for that drink seemed excessive...but the... More

We enjoyed Grove on a Wednesday night, first night of Restaurant Week. It's a cute little place in a hip area of town, across the street from sister restaurant Green Well. We had been to the other 2 restaurants in the group, but never to Grove. I have heard that portions are small and drinks are expensive. I would have... More

First time in Grand Rapids, a friend recommended the place and we went there with a group of 8. The strive was very fast, friendly and very attentive. Between the eight of us we tried most of the dishes from the menu and everything was good, some really excellent. The worst was probably a plate of bread and olive oil:... More

This farm to table restaurant has a very unique menu, full of fresh meats, fish and vegetables. Service was fantastic and the meals were terrific! It's a pricey place but was a great experience!

Short and Sweet: Grove has a very creative menu, and delivers a fantastic finished product. Relaxed atmosphere, good for romantic dates or business dinners. We particularly enjoy the outside seating on a beautiful summer evening. Will not pick a favorite dish because,honestly, they are all great. Many people consider this the finest food in the area. You may also want... More

My title says it all. The service was good. But not a good value at all. The polenta appetizer was excellent but after that just so so. I will not go there again.
