Delicious cesar salad with brioche crotons. Tasty Lamb chops cooked perfectly, as well as creamy polenta. Tuna appetizer lacked flavor but fish was super fresh. Chocolate dessert was yummy too. We will be back!

We had reservations, but weren't seated until 45 minutes after our sceduled time. Everyone was very nice, but still....45 minutes late!
Caviar panna cotta was delicious but crackers were soggy, really soggy.
Also outdoor seating is very special, but perhaps smoking can be prohibited as we had a table of smokers with multiple dogs next to us while we were eating which was disgusting.

Delicious food . Friendly service Eager to please. Noisy inside so we ate inside.
Didn’t care for my bottle of Pinot Noir from New Zealand which my server recommended as one of the best bottles she had. I mentioned I wasn’t crazy about it to one of the women that took care of the table and she was surprised and described the wine as savory which I never heard to describe wine.

The raw bar was very good but everything else was very mediocre. The wine list is horrible. Not one bottle rated over a 3.8. The prices of everything didn’t reciprocate the value of the food overall.

Service was great, food was fantastic...noise level is off the charts...we were a group of 4 seated inside and honestly found it extremely difficult to have a conversation. It was so intense that when we finally left it was a relief!!!! This was a Saturday night so it was busy and more than lively however I think they would do well to figure out how to somehow lower the noise level!!! Next time...and there will definitely be a next time because the food and service are great - we will request outside dining!!!

We celebrated a double bday here and had a blast. Our server was very good and the food was above average but not great. We did a couple rounds of Tequila shots. They didn't have Patron Silver so they offered another that ended being $15 plus each...a bit pricey and not better than Patron. The ambiance is really pretty especially if the weather is nice to hang on the patio. All in all I'd go back if I was in the area however wouldn't go out of my way necessarily.

Another exceptional restaurant by Beltran and his extremely talented team (including, of course, Alex)! The menu is deep and diverse, and the service is second to none. There was no expense barred in the buildout, which features an open kitchen (to watch Flit and his well-trained staff perform their magic) an inviting bar and the impeccably designed dining area. Now, I have to choose between two favorites at which to dine in the Grove. Which shall it be, Ariete or Navé?

It was incredibly loud inside. We had a difficult time hearing our server. Wish the owners had spent the money on acoustic ceiling tiles. The food was good and the service was excellent. The staff was very attentive. Had the insalata di mare and gnocco with mortadella for out starters. Followed by lobster risotto and ragu tagliatelle. Bith dishes were delicious. Finished with meloncello aperitif and the chocolate bar. Will return as long as we are able to have a table outside. I appreciate being able to have a civilized conversation during dinner.

Nave was a great experience from start to finish. We had a table of four inside and was fun to people watch the room and bar. I had the cucumber cocktail and others had wine. The food was approachable and also some unique items. The Peekytoe crab toast was so good and the Caviar panacotta was just excellent. The lobster risotto was also also unique with the carrot flavor. Dessert was also delicious with my favorite being the chocolate bar.
Looking forward to going back soon.

Very loud (scream across the table loud), highly energetic (pulsing music). Great seafood. Expensive.

Menu seems to be printed for only the very young, or those that carry giant magnifying glasses - very hard to read, especially as the lighting is dark, dark, dark. Great seafood. Expensive.

Some communal tables. We were seated at a shared table with two folks who are clearly the life of the party no matter where they go. Had a great time and many laughs. Regardless ... Great seafood. Expensive.

In sum, great seafood, expensive.

I knew Navé was going to be special from the moment I heard the concept and the team behind it. The raw bar was great (oysters, clams, prawns and live scallops and uni). Several pastas (chicken liver fusilli, tagliatelle bolognese, lasagna) out of this world. The insalata di mare served ceviche style was superb, gnoccho fritto w/ mortadella, Parmesan and whipped lardo blew me away. The cocktails were also great (house Negroni, OF, and a mezcal drink w/ a Campari/grapefruit ice cube). Over amazing experience especially being they just opened less than a week ago. The space also has a great vibe and a beautiful courtyard. Definitely surpassed even my highest expectations
