Fresh food and great presentations.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent "experience" dining!We had reservations for 5PM and were led right to our table, which was already set for a party of 3. Our server was at the table within a minute of us being seated. She was very knowledgeable about the menu, and was not hesitant to suggest entrees when one of us was torn between two different items.
The plating of each course was amazing! The food was beautifully and creatively presented, and full of flavor. The three of us ordered different items for our 3 for $33 dining experience, so we were able to sample 9 different dishes...each dish was fantastic!
Absolutely recommend The Grove to anyone who appreciates a fine dining experience!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful experience!Wonderful service and wonderful food!

You need to go to the Grove!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always rated GroveI have always rated Grove as my favorite in Grand Rapids. My wife and I were planning another wonderful evening of dining when we had our six year old nephew suddenly joined us (long story). The Grove staff easily accommodated us with coloring books and children's menu. And of course, great food. I now check "kid-friendly" along with everything else. Thank you Grove.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful experience !!!this was an excellent experience for my wife and I. As a joke on the special request part of the form i put "we would like an ocean view please" when we got to the restaurant the server mentioned my request when presenting a bottle of blue liquid and a couple of complimentary island type drinks and said that the entire waitstaff loved our request and found it very funny. she mentioned that the bottle would have to suffice as our " ocean view". they really went out of their way. the food was of excellent quality and as a former pro chef i can say that with all confidence.we will most assuredly be visiting again and bringing friends.they also have an excellent selection of local mi. beers .4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Night on Cherry St.Grove delivers again! It's a team effort and it shows. From the back-of-the-house to the front door, they know what they have - and they enjoy doing it each and every night. Kudos's to our server (and friend), Carmen!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTravelers DelightThe tempura fish tacos were mouthwatering and ended a three plate delight that started with a fresh, fine salmon tartare, followed by a delicious mushroom, vegetable pho that was so satisfying from aroma to gut. Only problem was deciding what to order which has me dying to come back to try a number of playes, notably the butternut squash bisque the gentleman next to me ordered. Great margarita complemented the tacos perfectly. A wonderful dining experience.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMost innovative dining in Grand RapEvery time I go to Grove the food seems better then the time before. The constantly changing menu and exciting way that the chef presents the seasonal selections is both innovative and delicious. Grove is always on my list of places to bring out of town guests to impress them with the quality of both food and service that Grove exhibits. The weekends are busy with more activity but for a quiet, less busy experience the early weekdays like Tuesday are perfect. The 3 course tasting menu where you get one choice from all 3 menu sections is the perfect way to really get to enjoy what is being offered. It is only $33 per person to do this and you will eat like a king. If you are on a budget you can still enjoy the KimChee Stew for $104/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant inMy favorite restaurant in GR.

Everything we tried was wonderful and perfectly cooked and seasoned. The drink menu was extensive and delicious. The service was attentive. We had a wonderful experience at the Grove and plan to go back soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was very goodThe service was very good - friendly and prompt even though every seat in the restaurant was occupied. That also means the restaurant was loud. Not just "energetic", but quite loud. Despite that, I will go back. The food was that good.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting, seasonal foodInteresting, seasonal food imaginatively prepared. The three-course dinner is a bargain.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Food - a foodie MUST!Grove is such an awesome restaurant and their food is second to none - in Michigan or outside of Michigan. We took our elderly aunt there for her birthday and, unfortunately, she was a bit freaked out by the gourmet/foodie nature of the food - by no means Grove's fault and both hubby and I absolutely LOVE their food. But, as with the best restaurants, they literally created a dish for her that was not on the menu and she loved it! A definite must dine at restaurant when in Grand Rapids.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Fare in Grand RapidsI have been in the International food business for over 35 years and the Grove is truly outstanding in every way especially this visit. The food is nothing short of "inspired" in flavor and the presentations are most pleasing without being overly fussy - just right!
My wife and I both had the Tasting Menu which gave an excellent cross section of the offerings and perfect portion sizes as well.
As much as I travel, and as many fine dining experiences as I've had, The Grove stands tall among some of the best!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again the Grove doesOnce again the Grove does not disappoint! Great flavors, artistically plated and perfect portion sizes. We had a great server, Kaitlyn, enthusiastic and pleasant. Expert help choosing a red wine that pleased 4 palettes. Lovely meal, my only comment is that it can get pretty loud, bring back the booths!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA favoriteMy favorite restaurant in Grand Rapids, always a pleasure!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is outstanding.

The dishes were unique, but delicious. We found the three course special to be a great deal. It was just the right amount for each of the four of us in the party. The bread plate was also delicious.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Grove has it all - deliciousThe Grove has it all - delicious cuisine, an inviting and relaxing ambiance, and friendly servers. I really enjoy the Taste of Grove experience of three courses (two appetizers and one entree). The menu changes often with the restaurant's Earth to Table concept, so there is always something new to try each time you dine! I also appreciate that, even when the restaurant is full, it is not overly noisy, and you can comfortably hear and speak to everyone at your table. I highly recommend a dining experience at the Grove!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great food taste -Really great food taste - great food presentation - a little pricey...but I love the local sourcing idea too!
Horrible parking, wish we could fix that....3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
