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!

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
