“Incredible Dinner❗️”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Went to dinner here based on friend's suggestion. This is the best meal we have enjoyed in quite awhile! Apps: octopus was tender and crispy with perfect seasoning; wahoo ceviche was perfect. Entrees filet with amazing mushrooms and halibut with peas. Perfectly prepared. Dessert peach cobbler with homemade icecream and key lime pie unmade with crust, icecream and key lime in separate areas. Simply fabulous, wonderful waitress. Portions are not large American style but just right.

“Did not disappoint”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Heard wonderful things about this very special restaurant and they were right. My husband and I walked in and we were surprised how small and intimate the restaurant was. Well we are happy to say it was delightful. We spoke to real "foodies" seated next to us and they were eating dishes that looked so good. We copied their choice and they were right..one of the best meals we have had ! Menu changes often . Each dish is innovative and delicious. Good looking crowd, great service and perfect atmosphere. This was a 10 evening !

“The best in South Florida: as good as in Paris!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We live in France and The Grove is our favorite restaurant in South Florida. The food is creative, fresh and consistently good. The menu is small and the food is made to order which is why it is always excellent. Paul's welcome is charming, Michael is a great cook and the service is always friendly and knowledgable.
A real find in Delray!

“Small place with amazing food!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

We went here for an early dinner on a Saturday night. The place quickly filled up, so make sure you get reservations. Everything we had was to die for, especially the Foie Gras and Octopus appetizers. Only strange thing was they told us we couldn't take more than 2 hours at dinner because of the later reservations. I understand that it is a small place, but we did have a fairly substantial bill and that was something that never happened to us anywhere else. Despite this, I would still go back.

“Unless you are a regular, forget it!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had reservations for this particular evening for a couple of weeks. We were seated at a table that, apparently, had been requested by a regular. We were served the wine that we ordered and our appetizers-- then we were asked to move! Shouldn't they teach in Hospitality 101 that you do not interrupt diners once they have begun their meal? We were incredulous and when the oh-so-classy regular came over and got confrontational (he actually had the audacity to bark we were sitting at HIS table), it was time to leave. Worst restaurant experience EVER. The beet salad was good and a little work of art. The octopus was soggy. Don't bother with this place. There are too many good restaurants in the area where you won't get attitude. Max's Harvest is right next door....
