Grove - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews
The Grove never disappoints. We were delighted to find many offerings that included seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables. The taste of Grove is indeed a value, with three plates for a reasonable price; it's just hard to decide which three! Service is excellent, and wine and beer choices are varied enough to please anyone.
Usually the food is very good but this time one of us ordered the ribeye stake, but what they served was, we all thought a strip stake. The waiter tried to explain that it was a ribeye with all the fat trimmed off, but we have had ribeye there before, and it was a ribeye and was great. This was a lower grade stake they passed off as ribeye.
Had dinner with a friend and we fully enjoyed the experience! I had the Trout and my friend had the Salmon and they were delicious! I would recommend trying Grove! I don't recommend it for people who like big burgers or fried food. They have great healthy and natural food options!
Our meal and service was outstanding. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. The glasses of champagne for our anniversary was a very nice touch. The only slight glitch was that we arrived slightly early for a reservation and instead of letting us know a booth would be opening soon, the hostess seated us between two tables of people, where we would not be able to have a private conversation. She was gracious when the booth opened and we asked to be moved but it felt awkward.
I have been to Grove a few times and each visit has been exceptional. The service is always excellent, the food has been amazing with flavors and texture combinations that make you savor each bite, and the drink selection is what you would expect from such a thoughtfully designed menu. You feel valued and never rushed to finish your meal, which is a rare experience in most restaurants. This really is one of the best dining experiences you can have in Grand Rapids.
An outstanding dinning experience. I was traveling with customers from Peru, who are very proud of their cuisine. We each chose The Taste of Grove and flights of wines. We asked our server, Nathan, to pair the wines with our courses. It was excellent! And such fun for me and my guests. Don't know if I will ever be back in Grand Rapids, but if so, I will definitly return!
Amazing experience from the moment you step in the door! Wanted to order a cocktail at the bar while waiting for our table, bar area was full. Bartender came from behind the bar to greet us and take our order. We were celebrating our anniversary, card on the table and we were treated to a champagne toast! Server was attentive despite she had many tables. If we only liver closer, we would be here frequently
I think of Grove as adventure dining--good adventure. Unusual flavor combinations and presentations are fun and delicious. Wait staff were helpful in explaining the menu to avoid any unwelcome surprises. Atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Delightful experience overall.
The food was so good and unique. My only observation was that there were only 4 of us for Brunch and 3 of the 4 dishes came out to the table almost far ahead of the 4th. After 5-8 minutes of polite waiting, I asked my family to go ahead and eat before their breakfast was cold. Other than that, it was nice. Definitely, a once a year. Bruch was $90 2 adults, 2 teens and no drinks.
What a fantastic experience for my wife and I. This was our first time at the Grove and we were not disappointed. We actually started across the street at the Greenwell for a pre-dinner cocktail since we were in the neighborhood and early for our 7:15pm reservation. On the electronic board at the bar we noticed that the Greenwell had an affiliation with the Grove since they were advertising the 3 course special "taste" of the Grove. Bartender at Greenwell said we would love it. He was right!
We both ordered the three course taste.
First course my wife had the Green Salad and I the Steak tartare. Wonderful! Wife said salad reminded her of salads in France when she studied there. I never had steak tartare but was excellent with some sort of little micro greens and herbs underneath.
Second course my wife had lasagna and I shrimp and grits. Lasagna was extremely fresh and light with a nice red sauce. Pasta layers were thin and tender. Portion was large (wife said she was probably good after the 2nd course with that size portion...but of course I helped her with finishing it). Shrimp and grits were divine. Creamy and fantastic seasoning with a nice portion of sauteed shrimp...YUM. These were no Waffle House grits!
Third course my wife had a beautiful piece of salmon in some kind of lovely beet puree/sauce. Don't know exactly what it was but just plain fantastic. I had the chicken leg with mushrooms and a sauce with dijon flavoring I think and some crispy spetzles. How the heck can someone make a chicken leg taste that wonderful? Unbelievably tender and tasty!
Food was first rate and extremely fresh. Waitress was fantastic also. Knew when to come over and when to give us space. Wine, cocktail and beer menu great! Loved that they supported local Michigan brews too.
Overheard the people next to us also raving about there meal.
Definitely coming back. Chef, whomever you are...congrats!
My husband and I have been on many date nights to Grove. Our last visit was ethereal. Not only is the Taste of Grove back (yay!), and some intriguing new items on the menu, we were told there was a new chef! We were absolutely blown away by the flavor complexities. Each bite was simply awe inspiring. Grove will now happen more frequently on date night!
This was our second dining experience with The Grove. They serve seasonal farm to table. The menu changes daily, showcasing local produce goods. I love the atmosphere and the wait staff is top notch. We bought foodie 13 year old and we all had the three course tasting. The deviled eggs 3 ways was a big hit. My son devoured it and the duck tartine and the quail. The food is beautiful plated and scrumptious. My husband and I added the wine pairing and discovered some delicious new wines.
We will definitely go back.
