This was my second time and the food was good just not as good as the first. The ambiance was amazing and the service was top notch. I’ll definitely be back.

I guess I expected a bit more for the price, but it was good, not amazing. Pasta was properly cooked, which seems to be a problem most places now. Nice server but overall it was just ok and I doubt if I would recommend it to anyone.

We were there to celebrate our granddaughters 16th birthday. Everything was lively and the food was great but my husband’s broccoli was ice cold. Loved the guitarist but sitting right next to him made it difficult to talk, which is hard enough with a teenager. Cold broccoli and noise level aside, it was a wonderful meal. The lemon cake was to die for!

Everyone did an excellent job considering it was high school graduation night. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The meal arrived very quickly (considering it was a very busy Friday night). The food is excellent and very fresh. The bruschetta were delicious! The blackened salmon salad could have used a tiny bit more dressing, but it was very fresh and healthy. We had a delicious meal and a great dining experience!

I grew up in Orem and only returned a few years ago. I took my wife to La Jolla Groves for her birthday. It’s nice to have a restaurant of this caliber here as close as the Riverwood. If you love flavor and service and a nice atmosphere above of the regular runaround, and want a special meal, this is the place.

Have eaten here a few times before. Perhaps it was just a busy night but the service was very slow, waited over an hour until we got our actual food. Food was not as good as it usually is. Small amount of chicken on my plate compared to another in our group that ordered the same dish and compared to previous experience with it. A little disappointed with this visit, but the molten lava cake at the end was great.

I'd like to think it was an off night, but it was bad enough we won't return. If everything had gone well, we still would have been put off by the house level and smell of the bbq place nextdoor. Worse still, the kitchen was incapable of getting the food out. We waited about 40 minutes for our starters. It was about 45 later that they brought out our entrees. Salads arrived after that and we simply sent them back. Server was apologetic, but hands down one of our worst dining experiences, especially for a higher end place.

Although on the more expensive side, it was more than worth it. Our group represented four families. All four plan to come back and make La Jolla Grove our go-to place in the Provo area. The service was wonderful and our waiter was very helpful with choosing food. Everything tasted so wonderful and presentation was great! Everybody couldn't stop talking about how wonderful or luncheon was. It was still part of the conversation hours later. I had the Carbonara and tasted my wife's Lemon Chicken. They were both heavenly. Everyone loved their menu choices. We will definitely be back!

The food was good. A bit on the pricey side for what it is, but the flavors were good. The setting is nice. There are about 15 servers/staff walking around at all times and coming to the table pretty often which is good service but maybe a little too much. They left the water pitcher on the table which was nice, but we never filled it ourselves because someone always stopped to fill our glasses for us. The tables they have for parties of two are a bit too small and feel cramped when you have food and appetizers on the table. Our appetizer plate was cleared before we were finished with it. The arincini (risotto cake) was the best I’ve ever had. We were given a beautiful dessert for our anniversary and our server was very knowledgeable about the food and helpful.

Service was very slow. We had to ask someone to send our server over to greet us because we waited a long time once we were sat. After ordering our meals, we received our first course in a timely manner, but then waited too long for our main course. Our server had to come over twice to apologize for the wait.

My husband and I enjoyed our lemon chicken and salmon meals. The pasta dishes were a disappointment to my mom
and dad, who were visiting for the first time. Because of the long wait to get our food, they didn’t want to complain and wait longer for a replacement.

The restaurant had a wedding so the normal entrance was closed off. I was on crutches, it was raining, and the dining room reserved for the wedding was empty. So I asked if we could go through the main area. They said to go around to the alternate entrance which was unmarked (we had passed it on the way in). I was terribly disappointed at the lack of sensitivity to my condition and the rain.

First time, was much better. Second time, a bit lackluster on the food, steak not hot seasoned much, pasta had a strange aftertaste I could not put my finger on what it was, but it put me off on the pasta. The outside is much better during regular days, but there was an outdoor party going on, so it was not expected. Cute restaurant but food needs more attention. More kids than expected as well.
