La Jolla Groves - Provo
From appetizer to dessert, you can be sure that the fare at La Jolla Groves is hardy as well as energizing. Finish off a healthy meal with homemade chocolate Bundt cake or the La Jolla Groves Lemon Cake to share with friends.
Great food with wonderful service. The server gave great recommendations. Everything was very clean and relaxing.
The “ new and improved” halibut that was seasoned in nuts was actually a fishy frozen piece deep fried. The joining carrot condiment was tasteless.
However the house salad, bread and pretzel starter were fresh and good.
We had a Wonderful experience celebrating our daughter’s graduation!!
We loved the food, especially the new salmon appetizer! I also had the salmon main entree and it was so tender and perfectly cooked I usually get the tenderloin but decided on the salmon, great choice! The new cold soup that was offered was so refreshing! I’ll order it again!
La Jolla Groves was most excellent as usual. They were out of a couple of our favorite menu items, but that is to be expected during a recovering time like this from the pandemic. It was our 20th Anniversary and we wanted to go somewhere we knew would be top-notch. Thank you La Jolla Groves and never go out of business. We'll be back once the Butternut Squash Soup is back in season. Well done!
I was so happy to be able to enjoy a wonderful dinner at La Jolla again. We tried the salmon tartare appetizer that is so new it isn't on the menu yet. It was delicious and will be on our list of favorites. The blackened salmon salad was perfect as always and the tenderloin medallions were great too. Our service was impeccable and the dining room was immaculate.
Great food and friendly service.
This was our first experience eating out since the quarantine and it was perfect. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was exceptional and our server was friendly and prompt. All staff wore masks and gloves so I wasn't worried at all.
Perfect for our anniversary night out! They gave us a complimentary cheesecake too. Definitely plan to go back!
We came in for a late lunch and were so impressed at the thoughtful changes La Jolla Groves has made from gloves the staff wore to using disposable menus and having hand sanitizer available. Our food was fantastic. I tried the tenderloin medallions and asked for mashed potatoes on the side which they happily accommodated. Our waitress was so helpful and we enjoyed our meal thoroughly.
Food was delicious! Servers were super! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Have been to this restaurant one previous time and enjoyed it so we decided to return for a birthday celebration. Loved the menu selections. The bruschetta is absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the beef medallions and pot roast meals and shared a piece of lemon cake for dessert. Entrées were cooked to order. Green beans served with the beef medallions were slightly overcooked but still delicious. Pot roast was out of this world. Lemon cake was also good but a little too extreme on the decorations – could’ve done without the meringue drops, less is more. Our party of two were seated a bit too close to a large party of 12 and we actually moved our table further away from the other diners so that we could talk at a comfortable level.
We celebrated my husbands 60th Birthday! We had a great time and loved the food! The staff was very fun and patient with our table!
Loved everything about it! Service was awesome, food was delicious. Thanks for a lovely date night out.
Fantastic. La Jolla is the best! The service was amazing, the servers were very attentive and respectful. The food was absolutely amazing as well.
Waiter was awesome and accommodating. Steaks were perfectly cooked. I had a fillet cooked medium and it was so tender and not bloody at all. The truffle fries were so yummy too!
fabulous staff who take great care of you throughout the meal
Great staff and the filet was like butter.
Loved the attentions, the quality of the food and the effort with the set up
We enjoyed dinner and dessert under the lemon trees with great service and excellent food. My salmon salad was delicious as always and we loved the chocolate mousse and lemon cake to top off the evening.
From when we were seated to when we left, we had a fantastic experience. From the hostess to the waiter, everyone was very nice and friendly and we even just chatted with our waiter, Quinn for a couple minutes. I love that! Well done all around and I will definitely come back again.
We had reservations yet it still took 15 minutes to seat us. Immediate service was good, and since they didn’t have the soup we ordered, they offered other options of soup complimentary. Then we sat for more than an hour to get our simple entrees. The restaurant was less than half filled. The food was delicious as always, however!
I was dissapointed in our experience.We brought someone from out of town for a business dinner and we waited almost an hour and a half for the main course.Two of us got the filet it was a little over cooked.The third person got the pot luck and it didnt come out until 15 minuted later and it tasted like it had been sitting under the heat lamps.
We are willing to try it again in the future hoping to have a better experience
Such a great place. We have been here a couple times and we have loved everything we have had. We always go back to the salmon because it is amazing. Their infused lemonades are the perfect balance of sweet and tart and their staff is AMAZING. Super professional and so nice and attentive.
A beautiful atmosphere with wonderful food and great service. Would definitely return!
Based off of this experience, no. Based off of previous experiences, yes. I held you to a much higher standard, and was very disappointed. To the point I don't know that I'll be back.
It was great
The only flaw was that even with reservation we have to wait over 1hr to be seated, my reservation was made for 8:30pm and they was seating people with 9:15pm reservation before us.
We were told that we had a reservation, but when we arrived, they told us that we would have to wait 45 minutes extra. It was Valentine's day, freezing outside, and it was clear that they had purposefully overbooked due to the large number of people also waiting. After our wait, my date and I were seated in an overflow banquet hall that has all the ambiance of a mid range hotel lobby. When we finally received the menu, it revealed that they had boosted the price of everything, and they only had a limited menu. This practice isn't uncommon for Valentine's day, but the problem is that they didn't make any of this information public. I probably won't come back, and I will recommend other locations.
They were very busy, being Valentine’s Day, but the food was phenomenal.
Not even worth one star. We made a reservation and they told us it was a 45 minute wait for a RESERVATION. The food was not worth the price and it was crowded and loud.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Utah Valley. I come often with friends, family, and just on a date with my husband. We made a reservation for Valentine's Day, and we arrived 15 minutes early. We were told it would be a 45-minute wait! It was already 7:45 PM. We shopped in the rare bookstore nearby until we were texted that our table was available. The service was a little slow, but the place was packed. We had the most darling and attentive and kind and understanding server named Kip. Kip made our experience wonderful. I received a yellow rose and a coupon for 15% off our next visit. Even though the place was packed, the food was excellent.
This place was amazing
Came for Valentine’s Day and had reserved a table. Came 15 minutes early to our reservation. They had over booked and said “sorry people are not leaving their tables” we waited an HOUR with a newborn baby! It was so packed there wasn’t even room to wait inside. So we had to wait outside in the cold. By the time we were finally seated it has the worst table in the corner smashed against a wall by the kitchen. I had no room I had to shimmy in to my seat between two walls and the table, we weren’t even under the lemon trees :(. We immediately ordered. It TOOK ANOTHER HOUR for our food to come out. By that point our tiny baby was starving and I didn’t even have enough room to feed her a bottle without putting her on the table because of how cramped in the corner our table was, she barely could fit on my lap. Once the food finally came we just asked to have it boxed to go, we didn’t want to be there any longer it was such a horrible experience I am sick about it. Waste of $100 and a ruined Valentine’s Day. Worst part was La Jolla groves is where my husband proposed 4 years ago and he hadn’t been back since. We were so excited to be back at this “special place” and I feel last nights experience ruined La Jolla for us.
Had a reservation at 7pm. Got there at 6:55. Waited half an hour, even though we had a reservation. Some people waited 45min with a reservation. The food was decent but not worth our $80 check.
This was probably our fourth Valentine’s Day dinner at La Jolla Groves in the last 6 years. First off, the food was fantastic and the service was friendly. However, we arrived for our 6:45 reservation, were seated at 7:15, and it was past 8 when we received our food. We left our table at 8:50. I understand it was an extremely busy holiday but everything was so slow that it detracted from the enjoyment. We will come back but probably not on a holiday again.
They overbooked their reservations. We had a reservation but waited for over thirty minutes to be seated.
Great food and friendly staff loved the atmosphere . The dessert was amazing too
I was so looking forward to this experience...for Valentines.
First disappointment was -though I had a reservation to sit in “the grove” we were seated in a side room with no ambience. (Why not put lemon trees and lanterns in every room?). Then there was a limited menu which was overpriced. Then , we brought our grand daughter to celebrate with us...and they would not accommodate by providing anything for her to eat ( we requested noodles with just butter- since I was ordering carbonara noodles) - we were told they could not assist us in any way. (awe made due with rolls and butter).
How I wanted this to be an extraordinary experience but the only extraordinary things we came away with was a gratitude for accommodating service in other restaurants and the high priced bill - which I would have been more than happy to pay- if we had had the chance to eat in “the grove” as we had hoped, and if they could have done ANYTHING for any price,(which we mentioned) to help our grand daughter celebrate with us.
Food was perfect! Elegant and simply delicious. Nick was a wonderful waiter and we love coming here! It’s our favorite restaurant in Utah County!
