We dined at The Grove due to the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent and creative, although as it is a tasting menu, each portion was very small. After having five courses we were still rather hungry. For a full meal, having a couple extra side dishes is recommended. This makes it a slightly expensive meal but the... More

wow what a great experience- worth every penny. Not one foot wrong, everything tasted amazing. Only thing I could recommend is asking the customer what crackers they would prefer for the cheese. I'm a savoury man through and through and really enjoyed the seeded crackers more so than both the fruit and sweet crackers. But i'm really nit picking there.... More

I went to the Grove with my sister and husband,we had the four course degustation which was good value at $99 per person. The service was attentive without being overly fussy. The food was delicious with wonderful flavours and was beautifully presented. The only thing that caused a bit of confusion was that all three of us were requested to... More

This is my favourite Auckland Resturant. Every time I go the service, food and generally the whole experience is perfect. Recommend for any very special occasion, or just because you love fine dining!

We visited New Zealand for four weeks and thought it might be a great way to start our journey with a dinner at The Grove. So we visited the restaurant on our first evening. And it was the right decision! We had a lovely table at the window and our waiter Pierre from Dijon did a great job. We had... More

We visited Auckland right after Christmas and the city was not surprisingly quiet probably because the residents were all on holiday vacays as well. So The Grove was surprisingly busy and full of holiday-makers. Go here for a nice intimate dinner date, although the resto accommodates bigger groups of diners too. The setting was definitely fine dining with a casual... More
