Grove - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews
Dining at Grove is a unique experience. Their tasting menu isn't something we have experienced before, but our server Nick did a wonderful job explaining how it worked. He was friendly, attentive and paced our meal perfectly! The dining room manager Alanna greeted us at the door with a smile and really went out of her way to make our date night special. Grove is definitely a restaurant I can recommend confidently. We look forward to returning soon!
We had a lovely time here! Our server was helpful and informative. We did the 3 courses for $29 (vegetarian menu). At first we thought the dishes were small, but we all struggled to finish the final course, and realized they were perfectly proportioned. I am not even a strict vegetarian but love ordering off the veg menu here because everything is so delicious. They really show how amazing veggies can be! Can't wait to come back.
The food is experimental so it can be got or miss. Last night was a hit on all courses. The area is loud and open so not overly romantic but for for a date if you don't mind the table next to you overhearing your conversation. The bartenders mix solid drinks and they have a good selection. Portions are quite large especially if you do the tasting menu. I eat here 3-4 times a year. For a couple it usually runs about 120-150 depending on drunks.
As usual, the food was excellent and the service very professional. We enjoyed every bite. My only complaint was the table: it was stuffed in a corner right up against another table. I would suggest that Grove take away one table from the row on the far wall so that everyone can have a bit more room and more privacy.
We arrived 30 minutes early for our 6:15 reservation on a Saturday night. Content to have a drink at the bar, they were able to seat us early which was nice. Waitress was great. It was my husbands 40th birthday and we had plans at 8. Our meal took 2 hours to complete. Starting at 5:45 we left at 7:35 barely making it to our event at 8. The food took extremely long. We each had a three course meal plus a dessert which we almost left without. The food was delicious and we loved the atmosphere but the timing was very disappointing.
Service was attentive, helpful, and helped us make the best decisions to address food allergies. Good drink suggestions. Larger than expected portions in the $39.00 - 3 course special. The food was enjoyable and it is clear what it aspires to be and may become, but it is not quite there yet. Look forward to trying it again.
My husband is a strictly meat and potatoes guy, where I'm willing to try something new, and The Grove menu accommodates both. Nice steak for him and I tried 3 courses with interesting ingredients! Pork taco with a spiced twist, rabbit lasagna, and duck leg confit. Yumm! Nice vibe in the space and service was great.
This was our first time experience with Grove. We were pleased with the food and the overall experience. We had excellent service. The after dinner coffee was phenomenal! My only real complaint is that our party of four was stuck in a very small table in the center of the restaurant. It was uncomfortable and did not make for the most pleasant of visits. We were celebrating a friends birthday and it did make it hard to relax and converse comfortably.
Excellent service and food.
Only concern is with some of the proportion sizes. The beef tartare, for example, was excellent, but an extra cracker or two would've been nice.
Also, some bread or rolls and butter for the table would have been appreciated.
Overall though, was excellent.
I would recommend this place to anyone. The food is amazing, the service is perfect and the atmosphere is good for a casual night out or for any special occasion. I wouldn't pass this place by, the food is worth the price as you won't find many places better than this one.
The food and, of course, the staff at Grove made our celebration special. There's room for improvement on the Chardonnay selection (IMHO) but we had a memorable time. Attentive staff, food came out at the perfect time, hardly any wait (we made reservations in advance though).
We went to the Grove a year ago when they had a different chef... I would have to say the first time was much better than the second time. For the price of the food we were a little disappointed at the quality and flavor of the main dishes. Menu was a little confusing too. We would rather go across the street to Greenwell and pay less where we thought the food was better...
This was our first time for Sunday brunch and it won't be the last! Great options, reasonable portion sizes, and excellent service. As always. I ordered the carrot-potato soup and brunch taco. Very tasty. I eat gluten free and always find it easy at Grove. My husband ordered sausage and biscuits and raved on and on. He loves the cocktails too.
We dine occasionally at the Grove and are never disappointed. This time we sat in the bar for a livelier ambiance and a quicker meal. Service was attentive and farm to table menu choices still creative and hard to choose from, another reason why we keep returning. Ordered from the Prix menu plus a few starters. Wonderful dinner - will return again soon.
