The food was excellent, we were celebrating my husband's birthday and all 6 of us enjoyed our food selections. I must insist you try the butterscotch pudding, you will be thinking about long after dinner is over. I was a tad dismayed that since most of the food is locally sourced that they did not include a selection of Michigan... More

A late Sunday evening stop proved to be the best surprise! My husband and I shared both our appetizers and entrées with one another. It would be impossible to say which one was better - everything we had was superb. The menu changes daily as they are farm to table. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly (Danny) and provided excellent... More

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
