I loved loved loved the heirloom tomato salad. It was done in such a refreshing different way than the typical caprese salad often served and it was so delicious! We are not vegetarians but I loved all of the vegetable accompaniments. They were the star of every dish and so good that I feel they deserve a 5 star review.... More

My husband and I dined here on an overnight trip to Grand Rapids and we will come back every time we are in town from now on! The staff (particularly our waitress Tanya) was wonderful--attentive without being overbearing, interested in connecting with their customers, and very kind in dealing with my husband's dietary restrictions. My husband had the 3 course... More

While traveling, we prefer to eat at places that aren't chain restaurants, places with unique options, things we don't see near us. This hit the mark. We came on a Sunday at around 2 for lunch. They offer a brunch menu until 3 on Sunday along with their normal menu. Also, $4 build your own Bloody Mary bar. We ordered... More

Wonderful brunch with family before touring the Meyer May House. Bloody Mary's for everyone - best ever! The hush puppies and deviled egg snacks were a great start to a fabulous meal. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations, including the hash which was my favorite. Always a pleasure finding a true farm to... More

We enjoyed trying different items on the menu and our server was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help make our experience fabulous. Our portion sizes were large and the food was creatively prepared and absolutely... More

Grove has all of the sophistication of a New York eatery, and the professionalism that comes with it. It's a bit pricey, but the food you get is absolutely unparallelled in this area. The menu changes frequently and everything that we've ever eaten at Grove has been five star. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants an unforgettable meal.... More

Dinner was excellent. One of business associates is vegetarian. He said food was outstanding. Wait staff was respectful of our business conversation and provided excellent service.

I have been to Grove in Grand Rapids on multiple occasions (at least 15 times, and counting) over the past 4 years, brought or met with numerous friends and family members, as well as dining solo. The quality of the food and experience has never been just "decent." The Taste of Grove menu is thought out well with the ingredients... More

The Grove does a great job of sourcing locally, and paying attention to those with gluten issues. The kitchen staff is very knowledgable about cross contamination issues and were vey accomodating.
