We were married here in 2005 and make it a point to return for for romantic dinners and special occassions. A stroll around the grounds before or after dinner is a must to add to the ambiance.

Lovely setting. Different
Lovely setting. Different menu than I recall but very nice. Have enjoyed lunch there on various occasions but not for several years. Nice decor in the dining room, and the patio is charming. I hope to return again in the near future and would like to experience the Thursday evening tapas and guitar music.

Wonderful food and atmosphere
The food was superb and prepared exactly as we asked. I ordered a small birthday cake, and that was forgotten. However, I mentioned it to the waiter, and they had a wonderful small chocolate cake with a candle on it in no time. We were happy with everything.

We were impressed! We both had the lobster bisque and the sea bass. Both were excellent. The sea bass in particular was surely the freshest I ever had. Service was friendly and exceptionally prompt. The atmosphere was nice casual and very pleasant. We opted for eating outdoors. It was a beautiful evening and we enjoyed the setting very much.

Everything was very nice. My only other comment is regarding the reservation hour. Online reservations made through Open Table at 4:45 were not available until until 7:45 When I called the Grove directly, I was also told that first reservation was available at 7:45pm yet when we arrived at restaurant the dining room was virtually empty. Confused as to why we couldn't dine sooner than 7:45.

Outdoor dining in the desert!
We celebrated my daughter's 25 birthday at the Miramonte Resort. We decided to stay on site for dinner and chose Artisan Kitchen. Our server was fun and fantastic! She was engaging (remembering each of our names) and playful.(joking at the loud, immature frat boys celebrating their Orchid Ball with their parade of dates!) The food was not as awesome as I had hoped for but it was still delicious and worth not having to drive elsewhere. The patio al fresco dining in the warm desert evening was awesome. I can't imagine sitting inside with such wonderful evenings.

In or Out
Romantic interior, pleasant warm evening dining outside.

While we usually avoid dining at a hotel/resort..Miramonte has done a beautiful job of rennovating the resort and upgraded their cuisine, including the chef.
Food was outstanding...
Ambience was elegant but casual..

One of our favorites!
The crab cake and the paella were both amazing.The food is always great, and our waiter Eduardo did an outstanding job! The filet wasn't quite up to par, but we will definitely return for special occasions.

Over all very good but...
The Grove caught my attention by participating in Palm Springs Restaurant Week(PSRW). Sadly, 1. we were not offered the PSRW menu and 2. turns out the restaurant week menu was a regular prefix offering but is normally more expensive (we were charged "normal price" but not enough difference to quibble). That aside, the crab cake was delectable (scallops were slightly undercooked); pork osso boco was falling off the bone and tasted amazing with a good variety of root veggies (fish of the day was fine); creme brûlée and bread pudding were both good. Waiter was awkward when communicating but brilliant for his sense of timing of the courses and knowing when we needed something. Loved the view of the mountains around sunset!

Our favorite place in the valley!
The Grove at Miramonte is the one place that we can take guests and know, absolutely, that the food will be great, the environment lovely, and the staff attentive. We also appreciate the relative quiet, as we both have hearing issues and there is never any loud music!
Best risotto ever, what I almost always order. Love it!

A good restaurant at a resort
A good restaurant at a resort venue. Many kids, so quite noisy. Food was very good. Desserts were outstanding.

Father's Day Dinner
The restaurant was quiet and peaceful. We had poached salmon which was delicious. The vegetables were unusual and wonderful. I believe they were white beets. I enjoyed the lavas very much.
Our waiter was wonderful. He attended to our every need, and was most cordial and friendly.
All and all, we were well pleased with our dining experience. We have eaten at The Grove many times and have always been happy with our meal and the atmosphere of the evening..

Superior service, scrumptuous food, budget friendly specials, this place has it all! Chef Robert has won my attention and respect... And the staff really knows how to turn his vision into a great experience. Cant wait To go back!

My husband and I enjoyed our
My husband and I enjoyed our 1 year anniversary dinner here.The appetizer we chose was the calamari. Very tasty, not greasy!
The menu had some great choices including fish, steak, salads.I chose the grilled salmon and root veggies. Very good except the veggies were a little more charred then I like. My husband got the filet minion with Yukon mashed potatos. He also enjoyed the temperature of the steak as well as the potatoes. We had the waitress pack our Creme brûlée with fresh berries to go so we could enjoy that later on our room. Overall a good experience.

Not only is the food to die for, the staff is extraordinary! Every time I'd eaten there I've enjoyed every bite! :)

Best Meal Ever!
The Miramonte never stops trying to get better - and they have succeeded! We had lunch with friends and everyone's meals were fantastic! The new table settings are elegant too! We ordered a hamburger, wedge salad, duck spring rolls and the cobb salad. All were gourmet and absolutely perfect in every way! Well done Miramonte!

"Artisan" it is!
Our party of four was very happy with the casual, friendly atmosphere for the presentation of carefully thought out and prepared food. Each of our four entrees was distinctive - no automatic side of the same veggies on every plate. Especially noted was a salad of poached white asparagus, fresh grapefruit and spinach with a light and lively dressing - perfect! And a pork "osso buco" dramatically plated and with a wonderful accompaniment of less-often-used vegetables (also delicious the next day!) Can't wait to return!
(Our friends go there often for breakfast but it was their first time for dinner too.)

Grove Artisan Kitchen was
Grove Artisan Kitchen was just as good as we remembered. An outside table on a mild evening, overlooking the mountains.
Our server allowed us to enjoy our cocktails as requested, before taking our order. If you are sitting inside, then you can see the open kitchen and the chefs preparing everything. Food excellent - highly recommended.

The food was very good. I had the risotto which was somewhat bland but my husband's osso bucco was delightful. Dessert was very rich and tasty.

Wonderful food and service
Located in the Miramonte Resort and Spa, this is low keyed restaurant with excellent food and service and a fair price.
The steak was one of the best we have had in the desert. The halibut was very tasty and well prepared.
Good selection of choices for dinner. There are a variety of sides and very tasty.
