Because of the great reviews, we may have had too high of expectations. The atmosphere was nice, the service was okay, the wine selection was excellent, but for us we felt they were trying too try to hard on the dishes. Way too much going...More

This restaurant has a great menu. The farm to table cuisine is expertly prepared and served. Portions are very small. Nice wine list.

A fantastic and unique food "experience". Farm-to-table with flair. Service was on-the-spot, but not in-your-face. Just go!

We are from out of town and consider ourselves foodies so after checking some reviews we decided to try the Grove. It is located in a funky and lively part of town, away from the downtown area. We were dressed VERY casually and were worried...More
