We loved Grove, but the new format will be interesting and is necessary right now. Pre-order with delivery or curbside pick-up. Beautifully roasted herb lemon (real) chicken with tasty sides. We especially liked the Dr Pepper beans, perfectly boiled to the sweet spot between soft...and solid. We can’t wait to try the other seasonings: BBQ & Jerk. Portions were generous. We will enjoy two meals (for three people.)They also offer a wide variety of drinks to go at reasonable prices. We opted for the Côte du Rhône. ThanksMore

We dined at the Grove last night and had a wonderful experience. Our waitress, Corinne, was excellent and very attentive while giving us plenty of time to enjoy our lovely night out. My husband and I tried different menu items and everything was amazing. The...whipped feta & pierogi appetizers, salmon dinner, butcher shop bolognese and desserts(especially the salted dark chocolate fudge!!)....out of this world. The staff worked wonderfully as a team (refilling water, clearing plates etc)and everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. The Grove is cozy albeit a bit pricey but definitely a great choice for that special outing. We loved our first....but certainly not our last time there!More

We dined with a party of 5 and we enjoyed a great experience from start to finish. All of us ordered something different and all of us were extremely pleased with our selections. The star of the evening was my Bison Meatloaf accompanied with a...creamy cauliflower purée that was literally the best meatloaf I’ve ever had anywhere. It was an extremely generous portion wit a sweet and smoky glaze that we agreed will “force” us to return again and again. Our server was absolutely outstanding!!More

Enjoyed the shaved Brussel sprout Cobb salad a lot. The beef tartar was also excellent. The Swiss Chard Gnocchi was pretty good. The crab cakes came up short. Deep fried in Panko, it lacked inventiveness and unique flavor. Nice wine selection. I can understand it’s...ratings but living in Ferndale we eat downtown a lot. And with Detroit’s very hot food scene the bar is high.More

We were given a gift card at Christmas for this restaurant. First of all, there is no parking lot so plan on valet parking or walking a few blocks. We arrived before 5:00 on a Friday night not realizing we should have had reservations. The...restaurant was almost empty when we arrived, the host was snobby and pretentious. We were offered a seat at the bar. The bartender was friendly and efficient as he took our food order. Although portions were small, the food was delicious. When we left, the restaurant was half full. Two entrees, no drinks, no appetizers and the bill was $50.00. This restaurant wasn’t for us.More

I have been to Grove on multiple occasions now and I wish I would have known about it sooner. Most of my visits have been for a special occasion but even when I was there, the staff made it a special experience. I really appreciate/enjoy...that I can book a reservation online through OpenTable. I would highly recommend trying Grove if you haven't been and if you have, go back and try something else..I'm sure you won't be disappointed!More

Grove was our single favorite restaurant in town from 2013-16 (went there a bunch and were always happy we did), then the last few times we went it wasn't as good. Dishes were heavy, presentation was off and flavors were not as good. Service has...always been good, but the food isn't nearly as remarkable.More

Went to Grove for my birthday. Everything was just excellent, from our server, Nick, to the cocktails and the food! Oh my... the food. I selected Shrimp and Grits. It's the best I've ever had. The chef also had the confidence in his skills not...to have salt and pepper on the tables.... because this food is seasoned so perfectly, you just don't need it. (plus, you'd probably wreck it! haaa).More
