Great time. Staff was very accommodating and helped keep the outdoors warm during the cole evening.
Food and service were excellent. The only order that fell short was the shrimp and grits which was good but not great. We will return.
Just an outstanding atmosphere & the staff was excellent!!! Highly recommend it.
The food & ambiance was wonderful but the service was slow & inattentive.
We were 10 ladies celebrating a birthday. We ordered a drink each then our food. After the food was delivered the waiter didn’t come back to ask if anyone wanted another drink. I had to ask another server if she could find our waiter because someone might want another drink. We had already waited so long everyone was ready to leave. The food was good and we enjoyed sitting on the patio but the service wasn’t what it should have been.
Always good food and good service at Grove. They were able to accommodate us outside (it was a beautiful evening) even though our reservation for four was for inside. Our server was new, but attentive and did a nice job all evening. Four different meals (skirt steak, seafood salad, chicken and veal) were each delicious and enjoyable. This is becoming our go-to place with out-of-town guests!
Everything about our dinner was excellent - the food, the ambiance, Louigi our waiter. We will be back.
Superb food, a great wine list and wonderful service! Very, very popular .... reservations are a must! Small, intimate setting and very low noise level. Our favourite restaurant in Lakewood Ranch.
I am so impressed with the husband & wife owners, who make sure to meet everyone personally. What a great find!
Good food, absentee server
Made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. Menu has great selections and some items not regularly available on all menus. The wait staff was attentive and went above and beyond. We didn’t have to wait very long for our drinks, appetizer, or main entrees. And price was on point for a restaurant in this area.
Always excellent noise level is a little crazy
Always an enjoyable experience! Dog friendly (outside), good food, always consistently good service. One of our favorite places!
New Years dinner was great, awesome fires outside.
Food tasty but scallops dish included only 3 small scallops for $32. Did not get a change of vegetable that was requested. Service quite poor and waitress talked back, was very lackadaisical. Mgr did comp our bill.
The food was excellent. We had the filet and the Bison prime rib. Good service, although our server was quite new. Great place!
It was a great New Years Eve! Thank you to the Grove for having amazing food and ambiance!
New Years eve
The food was fantastic as well as the service. We love this restaurant
Very nice outdoor eating space. Waitress was great. Food was great. We will return.
Food selection was excellent and as they selective themselves - high end (in variety and very interesting choices) but not intimidating. The price was very reasonable. The $10 lunch special was a half of a sandwich and soup and it was a large portion. Try the cauliflower flatbread! It’s really good. A would go back and would recommend to the pickiest of eaters. And the truffle fries are worth every penny!
Made very specific drink orders and did not get what we asked for. Since it is the holidays, we let it go. Flank steak was tough and not very flavorful. Way too much money for what we got
We were seated to a quiet table. Excellent server. All were pleased with their dinners. I especially recommend the beef Wellington and the wedge salad. Delicious!
Our Christmas celebration was fabulous! Jacques’ service was outstanding! And so was the food!❤️
Waiter was outstanding, food was good, drinks were poor. Having had dinner at Pier 22 a few days prior, this is nowhere near as good.
Great seafood. The outdoor seating was fantastic.
Great! Loved our server, Jacque!
Went for afternoon dinner at Christmas, and as always the food was delicious and appealing. The staff was easy to talk to and courteous. Love the chicken and the filet. The carrot cake was huge and the best I have eaten. Everything was priced right. Went here for Thanksgiving buffet and that was also a real treat, moist turkey and fixings.
Fun modern atmosphere. Patio are very nice. Good food and service
All staff very friendly and helpful. The risotto was excellent.. perfectly prepared. The salmon was extremely well prepared.. enjoyed every bite. The ambiance was very warm.. with low to moderate noise.. we will be back!
Gathering for Christmas. Service was non existent, food was not very good, in fact we were five people who spent a decent amount of money without a good thing to say a out our experience.
Everything was above and beyond from the service up the food. Thank you for making our night so wonderful.
We had a large group - 10 people plus two children. The restaurant was very accommodating. We were seated outside with a great view. The drinks and food were delicious. You won't go wrong with your dining experience at the Grove.
Our server Diego was very pleasant & personable...a definite asset to your team!
First class all the way!!! What an enjoyable experience! Highly recommend!!!
A little disappointed on our recent visit. My wife ordered the brussel sprouts with a side order of shrimp. The Brussels sprouts were way over cooked and the shrimp were small and not very flavorful. I ordered my old standby the stuffed chicken. This time the chicken breast looked like a large breaded hot dog. The mashed potatoes were cold and again no flavor. I ordered the Key Lime pie and they had sprinkled green and red sprinkles to make it appear more festive, unfortunately, it made the pie to sweet and it lost the tartness that one should have in a good Key Lime Pie. Overall it wasn’t a very pleasant meal for the price. Hopefully it was just a bad (expensive) night.
Great place to hold our department Christmas Happy Hour.
The outdoor seating area is very nice. Service was very good. My wife and I got the Caesar Salads with Chicken on them. Both salads were good portions and well presented but the taste was bland. I've had better salads at many other places. The prices were $18 each so I would say a little pricey. So overall, a nice restaurant with nice ambiance but only with average food. I will try again but it was a little disappointing.
I enjoyed the food and the seevice
It was okay. We were seated in the bar area and so it was super loud. Food was alright - nothing great.
Three of us came for late afternoon appetizers and drinks. Very nice outdoor atmosphere.
