Grove - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews

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).

The food at Grove had sagged a bit after the original head chef left. The kitchen seemed to be adrift, struggling to find its way. With new head chef Jeremy Paquin, late of the beloved and very missed Mia & Grace, Grove appears to be back on track.

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.

Great place for a date. It was a typical busy Saturday night in Grand Rapids which made my reservation a little late but management quickly acknowledge the issue and addressed it. Totally satisfied with the visit.

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.

The Grove has consistently proven itself a winner. We have been going since its opening, at least two or three a year. We have never been disappointed in service and originality, variety and quality of the food. The ambiance is upscale casual, a bit noisy unless you have a booth, but I would suspect the noise level is a good part of the enjoyment for many of their patrons.
On our most recent occasion, the staff, particularly our waitress was excellent. Very attentive, personable and genuinely interested in making sure our experience was memorable.
Lovely dinner. We will be back.

I do like the grove but the last times I went, it was very disappointing . The quail was dry and the fish had no flavor . Dessert menu leaves a lot to be desired. It used delightful but we were very underwhelmed.

We enjoyed the pork belly Benedict and the trout dish for brunch. Followed by a orange chocolate cinnamon roll will a cappuccino and an espresso. The food as excellent, The service was very friendly. We were there for the first seating and the environment was relaxed. By the time we were ready to leave there were a significant number of people there and the noise level was getting high.
We will definitely be going back for the brunch.

It's one of the area's priciest restaurants, but we knew that already and usually only go for special occasions anyways. Service was friendly and superb, and the wine pours are generous. Food was tasty (duck leg for me), but my wife's salmon was undercooked. Management took it back and brought her a "fresh" piece that was about 1/2 the size of the original! We called the manager over again and she agreed to bring out a third piece that was the correct size and temperature. A couple of "bumps" in the road, but it ultimately turned out to be a fun evening of dining.

The menu has evolved at Grove. The dishes are a little less exotic than they used to be, which I don't necessarily think is positive, but it remains excellent. We had the Taste (three courses including dessert - I feel like long ago the prix fixe was three courses prior to dessert, but I'm not sure). For the first course, we had a pierogi and the duck salad. These were both excellent. Somehow every dish we ordered did have the same vegetable complement - beets, carrots, and some potato and cabbage - I think this was probably our fault with respect to what we ordered. The duck was fantastic, and the pierogi was very non-traditional - I think it was fried - and creative. We had for the second course fried quail and trout. The quail was breaded and fried like fried chicken - but it was excellent. The trout was excellent, as well - succulent and falls apart in one's mouth. We had a layer sponge cake and butterscotch pudding for dessert. The butterscotch pudding (which seems to be on their menu a lot) is divine. The layer cake was okay (probably the least good thing about the meal). Mixed drinks were excellent, too. I'm not sure if it's just winter food, but I'm hoping the next time we go back, the menu will be more interesting as it has been in the past. We'll be back, though. I still think Grove is overall the best experience in GR right now.

The best meal, bar none, that I had in 2016. Each course in the wonderfully priced $36 3-Course Tasting menu was not only a tastebud explosion, but a feast for the eyes, as well. The duck salad with its schmear of freshly ground peanut butter on the side was scrumptious. The house made cavatappi carbonara was full of lardons and Brussels sprouts and the salted dark chocolate fudge on brown butter brioche is the stuff dreams are made of. Exquisite, memorable meal! Bravo!

We were in Grand Rapids from Chicago and wanted to find a nice restaurant that was open on Christmas Eve. We were pleased to get a reservation at The Grove. It lived up to our expectation--we had a lovely meal with great service. It was a very enjoyable experience.
