Absolutely delicious dinner and excellent service. We had the tasting menu with wine and it was all flawless. Or the 7 of us I think we've each mentioned how memorable the evening was at least twice since we dined there 6 months ago

Outstanding food in an unpretentious setting, a lovely special occasion restaurant. The food is contemporary European/New Zealand with fresh seasonal produce, beautiful sustainable seafood and quality meat. Enjoy!

Blown away by the food. Service perfect mixture of grown up intelligence, pampering and humor. Live in Auckland and The Grove just always delights.

Loved all the flavours service was special . While expensive something for special occasions . Small family occasion or as a couple not a place for a very large group

We visited The Grove to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The seven course tasting menu with paired wines was imaginative, well presented and delicious. Service wise, we were very impressed with the attention provided and thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience. Definitely recommend!

You should be fine with casual shoes, Auckland is a pretty informal city.

Hi Missjess8, This is a fine dining restaurant and not ideal for young children in my opinion.
