Tasty food, delicate cooking, creative presentation. I have had a six course menu Degustation, matched with funky New Zealand wines. This was a sensational trip up the olfactory nerve. Not many restaurant can do this. Highly recommended for serious connoisseur.

I was very impressed with Grove. We did the 4-course tasting menu and I had the wine pairing. The service was impeccable, the food inspired, and the presentation memorable. Will definitely return next time I'm in in Auckland.

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