After an all too brief visit with the amazing beer scene in Grand Rapids I needed some sustenance. Knowing nothing I went to trip advisor and thought the Grove sounded good. A home run, from my perspective. Maybe a little pricey but the food and service was excellent. I chose the 3 course meal starting with cauliflower soup. My entree... More

Was very disappointed. Please take the quail selection off the menu. All you are offering is two quail legs hidden is some salad greens. I had a better salad with much more meat at SaladWorks for twenty dollars less.

I reserved a table for our anniversary, and we received complementary champagne. Our server was wonderful, as was my wife's prime rib entree. I tried the peanut butter and jelly and duck condit appetizer, which was quite appetizing, but also was awfully rich--it probably should come with a coupon for a cardiology consult. I opted for the fried quail, and... More

I want to start by saying I am becoming a foodie and I am comparing this restaurant to my experience at other restaurants comparable in price. The food was mainly good and I could eat it again but for the price I won't be back as I would rather go elsewhere to pay that much and get more of the... More

Four of us dined at Grove. Through a local non-profit, we had won a gift certificate for a set menu dinner with wines at Grove. Grove had made a generous donation to a local environmental organization and donated the dining experience. Everything was handled very competently and professionally. We are very familiar with the Essence group and their restaurants. We... More

We had a fantastic meal here this evening. The hush puppies were excellent. The pierogi had plenty of fresh veggies to accompany it and the main dishes of pork belly were also great. We ate outside which was nice in the beautiful fall weather. Service was excellent! Drinks were good!

Usually in the Grand Rapids dining market, you don't find Restaurants willing to take a chance. This one does......with AMAZING results. They can take a traditional item and transform it into a unique and tasty variant that hasn't been tried before. Their wine list is equally interesting with offerings that I frankly have never heard of but have enjoyed immensely.... More

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
