Devine meal. But pricy. Could not fault the service. Food was well prepared and had wonderful wines to match the food you were eating. Have to save and do again

Excellent service and the food was 5 stars. I could not be more satisfied by our overall experience at the Grove. I would highly recommend it for a romantic dining adventure. Get the full course with the cheese platter.
