We picked this place for dinner as it was recommended by The Lonely Planet and was close to where we were staying in Pacific Heights. The Grove is a shabby-chic cafe with a young, student crowd. The food is homely and comforting. We ordered Mac N Cheese and Enchiladas. The portions were huge and the food was good. Fillmore Street is a lovely neighbourhood with good shops and cafes, all with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Pretty good food for a place you order at the cash register and it is brought to you. If you are in a rush and want something light the Grove is great

In the Fillmore District - some interesting food, a little pricey for being the kind of place where you place your order & pay at the counter, then they bring your food to your table. All of the servers/cashier were very friendly, and it is apparent that it is a popular place. However, too much furniture in the place, difficult to manuever, or to be able to pull out your chair to sit down.

My husband and I make an annual trip to Japan Town for a conference at Hotel Kabuki and the Cherry Blossom Festival. This is the second time we have ate at The Grove and have found the restaurant delightful. The tables are very close together which encourages conversations with strangers. We wound up sitting next to a young women who grew up where we were planning on visiting in a couple of weeks. We had a wonderful conversation regarding the city in question.
The food is reasonably priced and delicious. They also serve wine, beer, and espresso drinks. The menu is varied so anyone should find something they will like. The service is especially good. All in all, a fun neighborhood joint with lots of character - something you will not experience if you spend your life in the suburbs.

We normally eat at The Grove each time I visit my niece from Portland. During a recent visit I was rather disappointed; furnishings are worn, bench pillows soiled, coffee bitter and the breakfast potatoes were greasy! I love the Fillmore neighborhood though and who knows I may go back.
