  • "We would never recommend this restaurant. My housband and I arrived at our reservation time, 6:30. We were seated promptly and we ordered drinks and appetizers. When our friends arrived they ordered drinks and we were about to order more appetizers when the waiter said he had to take our entire order at one time and soon. The staff hovered over us the entire time we ate picking up our plates immediately after we finished. At 8:20 they brought us the check and didn't even ask if we were finished. We were finishing our drinks and at 8:30 the waiter came over and told us "I'm sorry but we have to ask you to leave, we have people waiting for your table." We eat at nice restaurants all the time and this was a very disappointing experience."

  • "Intimate restaurant. Small yet innovative menu. Delicious and fresh food, the chef is simply fantastic. Been there 3 times in four weeks. Combined with the warm and friendly welcome by Paul and the professional and personable service (during our visits) by Joe, the Grove is a fabulous choise for an enjoyable and special dining experience."

  • "I recently had the opportunity to dine at the Grove. It was a wonderful experience and the food was amazing. The staff were attentive and friendly. The bread was warm and delicious...the dessert was delicious. Most of all, the setting was calm and soothing and restful and very modern. I would recommend that everyone who visits Delray ~ have a bite to eat at this Delray gem. Thank you to the chief, staff and servers for providing an exquisite experience. I can rave about this wonderful place to pass the time and dine in Delray."

  • "We are so happy that The Grove came to Delray Beach. When we want to go out for a special evening, this is where we think of first. While it is a bit pricey, it is also perfection, and who can put a price on that? We recommend the mushroom soup. It's always on the rotating menu and well worth an order. You might consider sharing the soup, since there will be plenty more food when the entrees arrive! If you can afford to eat here, you should definitely try it."

  • "Great food in an intimate location. My husband and I have been here 3 times and haven't been disappointed yet. Fabulous wine list and impeccable service!"

  • "We have visited the Grove several times and it keeps getting better. This is a small, candle-lit space perfect for a romantic evening or a very pleasant night with friends who appreciate wonderful food. The entire staff is welcoming and both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food. The wine list is extensive given the size of the restaurant, and very well chosen with a wide range of price points. The menu changes regularly, so there is no point in a "don't miss" comment except one - don't miss this restaurant!"

  • "I went to this restaurant with my husband. We are new to the area, but were familiar with the restaurant they have in miami. We were blown away by the lamb tartar and the swordfish. Everything was freshly prepared, and divine! Absolutely amazing food. I will dream about their Nutella donuts."

  • "the finest meal we have enjoyed since moving to the area five years ago! phenomenal!"

  • " We have been to the Grove on numerous occasions. The menu selection is always great. You can enjoy a couple appetizers for dinner or go straight to the entre selection. The portions are not overwhelming which is a good thing because it allows room for desert."

  • "The food and service were excellent. However the menu is very limited and there is only Wine and Beer. The wine list is extensive but the lowest priced wine was $45 a bottle. This is a little high considering you can only have wine or beer. The food was great, but again very, very limited as to choices. 4 choices for appetizers, 4 total choices for entrees. All was prepared to perfection. My wife and I both had the chicken. I started with the Octopus and my wife the beet salad, both great. I am glad I was in the mood for chicken. we will definitely go back. Our server was outstanding and the owner checked a few times on us, by name, which we thought was a nice touch. Next time we will be prepared for the limited selections."

  • "We chose The Grove for an anniversary dinner because we were traveling with a dog and he was welcome at outdoor seating. Paul is a great host and cook. There is a hint of modern Spanish cuisine in his cooking but with a deft touch. The wine list is quite fun with some nerdy gems, although a bit too marked up for me. We will return."

  • "El Restaurant ofrece una carta pequeña pero con platos de muy buena calidad y muy bien presentados. Es de lo mejor que existe en la zona entre Delray Beach y Boca Raton"

  • "Friday night dining in Delray Beach can be frenetic and somewhat boisterous, but The Grove stands as a bastion for fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. A few tables, maybe seats 40 with the lovely outdoor seating combined with the warm but contemporary dining room. Service from appropriately attentive and knowledgable servers is perfect. They have had the same server staff since opening and it shows. Paul, the host, is engaging and funny, quick to notice your needs and always sincerely interested in your experience. Go twice and he will remember your name. Michael, the chef and senior partner, is creative and also friendly. Don't miss the best food and atmosphere in Delray Beach!"

  • "I have been to this restaurant a number of times and it has never disappointed. As with many Chef owned establishments, this is a small restaurant with limited menu of always fresh and interesting appetizers and entrees. Eclectic and interesting wine list, very friendly and attentive service. Despite its size they refrain from jamming tables right next to each other, something I particularly appreciate. A real pleasure in Delray Beach."

  • "The food is the beast we have had in Delray and we've eaten at everyone of those restaurants. My husband's octopus appetizer was phenomenal (I'd NEVER consider ordering it but I loved it) and was a perfect compliment to my portobella mushroom soup laced with hazelnuts. The entrees, Swordfish and broiled chicken were also superb. Cappuccino…perfect. Recommend you skip the nutella donuts despite other reviews."

  • "This was our second year to celebrate our anniversary at The Grove. A nice touch to bring glasses of champagne as soon as we were settled. The food was as outstanding as we remembered. . .and the staff was attentive and efficient. It will be a celebration ritual - and we plan to return soon with friends who will appreciate such a dining experience."

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary, but didn't mention it until we arrived. Paula hooked us up with a nice gesture of 2 glasses of delicious champagne . Food was great! Bit of a limited menu. Service was great too!"

Everything from the warm fresh baked bread to the phenomenal donuts for dessert were excellently prepared. Both of our entrees were exceptional and it was clear that the chef paid great attention to cooking this exquisite food. We have been to most of the restaurants in Delray and this is definitely our favorite restaurant!"
