Grove - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews

It was my wife's birthday. Two family members of ours are pretty well traveled and regularly enjoy many top of the line restaurants. They absolutely rave about Grove and put it at the top of their list of favorite restaurants. I have a specific diet and they can definitely accommodate. If you are vegan or vegetarian you will be unbelievably happy. They have an alternative menu just for you, with many of the plant based versions of the main menu in addition the other options. If you enjoy your meat, well I am not sure you can beat this place. They literally have something unique and appetizing with every dish. It is the first menu I have ever looked at and said out loud that I could eat everything. Between the four of us, everything that came out was fantastic. Can't say enough about the food. The service was top notch. Service was quick and I never once had to look up to find our waitress. Carmen new her product and gave excellent service. The manager Jim seems to have his eyes on everything and checked in on us periodically and made sure that we had a great experience. I am pessimistic about restaurants over all because honestly, most restaurants are not that great. Very few actually come through for the price you pay. I never right reviews on them. It is a must to write one when one is deserved. Thank you for the hospitality, great food and awesome customer service. We will be back for sure.

Grove hits the fine dining experience well. Attentive staff. We gave feedback on some dishes and were kindly comped dessert. An unfortunate side-effect of a daily menu is that some items still need work. Others did not: fritto misto was table winner as best dish with exceptionally nicely prepared octopus, and tuna was close second for simple high quality of an ingredient.
We've been to worse restaurants which had one Michelin star.

Plus: The chef is very imaginative in the menus he creates.
Negative: Two members of our party ordered the Prime Beef Coulet and both thought the meat was tough. Certainly for the price of the entre, you expect a very tender steak.

We had made a reservation so we did not have a long wait after we arrived. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We had planned to order the salmon but were told that the salmon was no longer available since it was sold out. We ordered the white fish instead and were very pleased with its preparation and presentation.

Excellent service and outstanding food. OpenTable didn't let us down. We had the 3 course tasting menu and it was great value and phone was really good. My wife had the salmon dish and loved it so much she wouldn't share.

I am a little disappointed. This place used to be so great, then they messed up and got rid of the taste of the grove. Now they brought it back, but the food just isn't up to what it used to be.
It is a good place to take someone if you want to impress them, but I do not think I will go just to eat the food anymore.

Went for my wedding anniversary and had a great meal. I would definitely reccomend the duck PB&J! Great food, great service, and strong cocktails. My wife and I enjoy eatting farm to table, and the Grove does a great job of this.

We had a wonderful evening. The service was excellent. We were well cared for but never felt rushed. Each plate needed to be studied before eating because of the beautiful presentation. When dessert arrived I was not sure that I wanted to begin because that would mean that the end was near!

Food was very salty--almost couldn't eat it. I had the quail--portion was very, very small with lots of vegetables. My wife and I had a difficult time hearing each other due to the closeness of the tables. I cannot see us going there again.

Not sure how I found this place. Maybe yelp? Anyways, after reading their concepts for the menu and it changes daily I was sold. You know the food will be amazing if the ingredients are that fresh. It is pricey but WORTH EVERY CENT.

The food was great, bar keep was outstanding, she was the one that salvaged the night for my wife and I. The hostess on the other hand, worst customer service I've ever experienced, how do you forget about a reservation that you sent to the bar.

Fabulous . This restaurant is a gem. The service, menu options, quality of ingredients and cleanliness is superb. We spent one night in Grand Rapids and lucky we ended up here for dinner. I'm gluten free and they accommodated me. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

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.
