Grove - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews
The first stop in our 2017 restaurant week picks. The food is exceptional - creative offerings which showcase local, fresh ingredients. My husband enjoyed the shrimp and grits, while I indulged In the fried quail ... the flavors intermingled between sweet, sour, smokey- resembling an upscale barbecue. The service is some of the best experienced in Grand Rapids.
The food here is as beautiful as it is delicious. Pate was a work of art, and the salmon was the best I have tasted, each bite a melt in my mouth declaration that I had never really tasted salmon before. Loved the wine paring. If you can have one really great restaurant experience, this is the place.
Food was superb. Beautifully prepared and many options that were hard to choose between. Portion size was surprisingly ample too. The only complaint was a casually sexist remark by our server towards my partner about requiring a "big girl knife" for her food.
Passing through Grand Rapids on the way back east... google led us to Grove and we happy for it. Excellent food. The beef tare tare was amazing - very well prepared. The the dishes were also flavorful, well prepared, seasoned. A lovely meal out - would totally go back.
We chose the 3 course dining option. Every one of the 6 dishes my husband and I had were absolutely wonderful. We also chose the wine pairing and let our waiter (Nicholas) choose the wine. He did a superb job. I am really not a wine drinker and usually chose a mild wine when I drink it. Without my telling him anything he chose light wines that I was able to drink and enjoy. Of course he paired them with what I ordered. I have to take a moment and say our dining experience was made as wonderful as it was because of Nick. He knew so much about the menu and he made this dinner about us and what we wanted. The rabbit, pork tenderloin, shrimp and grits, chicken liver pate (almost like butter) and quail were so tasty. This restaurant is a bit pricey if you want to do it right, but oh so worth it. Would go back to Grand Rapids just to go here to eat, but I would request that I had to be seated with Nick.
We have dined at Grove several times and have never had a disappointing experience. Food, service and ambience have always been first class. The service is very professional and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. We look forward to our Grove visit every time we are in the area.
We had the 3-course option and were pleased with each dish. The tomato salad with a slight smoked vinaigrette dressing and the red pork stew were our favorites. A must have is the chocolate fudge dessert to end the meal. Highly recommend this restaurant...one of the best in GR.
Excellent menu variety, expertly and creatively prepared. Local veggies abound in each entree. Attentive service, casual atmosphere. Parking is a little hard to find given other popular eateries in the area; nearby parking lots were all full. If you don't mind the walk, side street parking is available. A little on the pricey side, so best for a special occasion meal.
This was my second time at Grove for brunch and it was consistently outstanding. I ordered two breakfast tacos and they were delicious. My friend and I both modified our orders and they executed them with excellence.
We sat outside and had fantastic service that was attentive without being intrusive....they didn't rush us and I really appreciated it on a Sunday.
Atmosphere was lovely and the coffee was fantastic as well.
I hope to get there for dinner one night too.
Grove may just have become our favorite Grand Rapids restaurant. The Taste of Grove menu is a creative, brilliant idea. The problem is picking only three things from the amazing selection. Everything we chose (my husband and I each chose three different items) was excellent! And the service was wonderful. We were served complimentary champagne because we were celebrating our anniversary. When I was having trouble deciding between two wines, our server brought them both out and let me taste them. Everyone needs to experience Grove.
My favorite thing about Grove is that everything on each plate is so carefully prepared. While there may be a centerpiece of the entree, such as a piece of fish, what accompanies that fish is so thoughtfully chosen and prepared; no plain scoops of rice or potatoes, or straight-up steamed carrots. The menu is interesting, and while "Taste of Grove" is very filling, it's the best value.
While the taste was good, the food was over priced for the small quantities that were served. While I am not one with a huge appetite, admittedly i was disappointed with the quantity i was served for the $27 I paid for my plate. If you like exotic food names, with an otherwise acceptable taste level, served pretentiously to make it appear up-scale, but priced way too high for the quantity then you may like this place.
Good items somewhat esoteric. Can't just order a fish off the menu. Ours was paired with an octopus tentacle. My son ordered it and enjoyed it because he was amused by it. I didn't care much for the texture. I ordered the tacos from the appetizer. Wife ordered the polenta from the vegetarian menu. Tasted good but was oily and a bit too rich. You have to really think before ordering something.
Great, friendly service. Food was good but be prepared for a different menu than you see online. Apparently it changes often. Also, vegan items are not on regular menu &you have to ask specifically for it, which is kind of annoying. Other than that however, our experience was great. They gave us extra treats for celebrating our anniversary there & we felt v comfortable being a same sex couple. Highly recommend the almond chocolate pudding.
This was an anniversary dinner for two of us that was noted when we made our reservation. This special occasion was not mentioned or recognized before, during or after our meal. Upon arrival, we were ushered to a table that was set for 4 right next to a server station even though there were at least 4 empty tables for 2 visible at the time. We had to ask for one of those tables. Our food as selected from the tasting menu was good but didn't seem to be as tasty as six months ago when we last visited. Service was fair, but certainly not special. The signature dessert, butterscotch pudding, seemed stale and the usual salt on top was not as apparent as we observed before. Pricing, particularly on wine and beverages, was really high. I would have to think long and hard before recommending this restaurant.
