Came here for Sunday brunch/ date day with my hubby. We made a reservation online for 1:30 and when I realized we'd be 2 minutes late I called them 15 minutes out and let them know, they giggled and said no problem! We got there (1 minute late!) and they weren't too busy (to our surprise!) and quickly seated us.... More

We love Grove at lunch and dinner but we're blown away by Brunch here. The new cocktails are always previewed on Sunday mornings and it's a perfect way to start the day. Chicken Hash, Smoked Trout and Dill Scrambled Eggs, Smashed Potatoes, and a deepfried Apple Bread Pudding, how can you go wrong? We'll be back as often as we... More

This was our first visit to Grove. Our server, Nick, was knowledgeable and helpful. The 3-course option is a wonderful way to sample a number of dishes. My meal included the chicken liver pate which was served with rye cracker It was smooth and creamy and complemented with strikingly flavorful greens. Likely the best that I've pate that I've ever...

We've been here for dinner several times and never have been disappointed. There always is an exciting variety of deliciously prepared and beautifully plated food along with fine wine pairings and exceptional cocktails. Recently, though we went for Sunday brunch and enjoyed as much as we'd enjoyed dinner. Again, exciting, delicious, beautifully plate food (cheaper than dinner!) and exceptional cocktails.... More

We have eaten here several times. It has always been good, although sometimes better than others. The service can be variable, but if you are fortunate enough to have a skilled server and choose the right dishes, it may be the best restaurant in the city.

My husband and I have dined here a couple times. Both times we were underwhelmed. Dark cramped dining room, pricey, non memorable food and experience. It has been a year since we last visited. We had out of town friends that wanted to dine at the Grove. We decided on the 'Taste of Grove ' which consisted of three courses.... More

Made a trip to Grand Rapids for a one night get away with another couple. We all picked a restaurant and did a blind draw, Grove it was. We made sure to make a reservation prior, otherwise you may not be eating there. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar. The bartender a true mixologist. They offer... More

Make a reservation and ENJOY a unique and memorable dining experience! The waitstaff (Nathan) is very knowledgeable about the menu and appropriate wine pairings. Since it's farm-to-table, the menu changes seasonally. We ordered different things so we could share and it was all wonderful! SO glad we picked here for my birthday dinner!

We are happy that we tried Grove. We had reservations on a Friday night. Parking was tough to find a spot so we used a third party valet right in front of the restaurant. Although place was busy, we were seated right away. Our server was great and timed everything perfectly. Food and drinks were excellent. We opted for the... More
