I was looking for a place to have a great birthday dinner for my girlfriend and Grove came highly recommended. It absolutely was worth the praise. Appetizers and dinner were delicious and well presented for both my meat-eating self and my vegetarian girlfriend, with great input from our server. Super fresh and local, can't ask for more. They even gave her a complimentary dessert for her birthday. Fantastic experience, I would recommend it to all.

We've been here before when in GR, so it was a no brainer to make a reservation Sunday night. Very busy for a Sunday. Loved the seasonal menu. The winner at our table was the pork belly porchetta with beet risotto, beet chips and candy cane beets. Rich & delicious. Another good one was pork steak with root vegetables --very good flavor. The pork tenderloin & melon salad was deemed delicious! Everything was beautiful to look at as well as to eat. Our server, Nathan, was efficient & helpful but not at all cloying or overbearing. And if you get to go often (as we do not since we're not local) well, that is the beauty of it--the menu changes with the seasons. While you might want to have what you loved last time is no longer there--but you can fall in love all over again!

We liked the location and the look and feel of the Grove. Unfortunately we all felt that the food was over spiced and dishes were made over complicated. I don't know if we caught the chef on a n off night or the sous chef cooking but we were let down by the food.

Nestled in a charming neighborhood with a parking lot right beside The Grove is a culinary surprise for first time visitors. We were greeted warmly and seated in a cozy banquette. The tables are close , but not obtrusive. The menu is unique, seasonal, and they know what they are doing in the kitchen. Our server was perfect and she knew the menu and ingredients well. we ordered appetizers : chicken livers with challah and deviled eggs. Both were exceptional and creative. I loved the wine paring suggestions. Dinner was white fish and fried quail. each was delicious. Our first experience and it was a winner

we make it a point to go to grove whenever we are anywhere near grand rapids--and even if we aren't so near. creative, seasonal menu at very reasonable prices; much care taken with preparation, if slightly less with presentation.
have never had less than a really good meal here--whether lunch, brunch, or dinner. (and by all means try their bloody mary any time; an interesting midwest twist on the standard with great ingredients.) and you won't find a better shrimp'n'grits anywhere.

Food was excellent! My date and I had the three course meal deal and it was worth the price. Waitress was kind, attentive and knowledgeable. Environment is cozy and the music really sets a relaxed tone for the entire place. Definitely plan on returning!

On my Open Table reservation I listed some seating preferences and mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary. I was really please they accommodated my requests and made the evening special by putting a card on our table wishing us a Happy Anniversary along with two complimentary glasses of champagne.

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The food just explodes with flavor. It must have to do with how fresh it is as well as some great flavor combinations. Our most recent visit was with a group of four. We all had different items and they were all unique and exceptional. Our waiter was charming, knowledgeable and never seemed rushed but the service was right on time. There's one drawback to Grove and this might not apply to your visit but the one dining room is smallish so if there is a large group they're likely to be in the middle of the room and then it gets loud. Very loud during our most recent visit.

All entree's were extremely salty which was umfortunate because they were presented well. Not sure about the high rating looked like 50% of capacity in the dining room on Saturday night . Taste the food for seasoning before you put it in front of your patrons !

Food was on par with the cruise ship's cuisine, in other words, very different, tasty, and eclectic. I had the baked whitefish entree, and although I told my waitress I preferred it fully cooked, the fish was just barely on the side of solid, almost raw. I suppose if I liked sushi or sashimi it would have been ok, but I was not thrilled. I have had salmon prepared that way too...I don't understand the appeal of jelly fish within the barely seared exterior. I did not bother the waitress as she was very busy with two other tables, one of which was a rather large party. And my husband ate most of my whitefish and liked it.
Other than that, we had a very nice experience at The Grove for my husband's birthday celebration. The portions were sufficiently pleasing for hungry people. We enjoyed the $39/per person offer, consisting of choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. Nice selection of choices, too!
We made our reservations using Google and Open Table, which was easy to use.

In Grand Rapids the night before flying home. Somehow found Grove on the internet. Delighted with our choice. The kind of restaurant that lets you taste a wine to determine if it's the one you want. Very tasty dishes. Especially liked the barley, apple, roasted squash, Manchego cheese salad. Would love the recipe but will try to recreate at home
