    I’m always pleased with the service and ambiance. However, This was the second occasion in 2 weeks there was a large group of people at one indoor table causing an excessive amount of noise and being disruptive to others. In my experience, restaurants such as this do not allow groups bigger than 10 people for this reason. I hope Grove will consider implementing this policy in the future. Overall, looking forward to my next visit.

    Weird environment, and confusing and conflicting flavors. Cold razor thin pears with warm flavorless slimy spinach. My wife couldn’t eat her chicken saltimbocca because the chicken was dry and flavorless. The prices will make you think you’re getting something special but it’s basically a chef from Applebees that watches too much chopped. The server was fine so none of it would fall on him. Just gross weird food combos with about the weirdest decorations known to man. Is what it is. Rough 100 dollars to spend on dinner.

    Beautiful atmosphere and excellent food and stellar service! Eliot was our waiter and he was superb! My only complaint is that we chose to sit in the sun room and a birthday party was happening with lots of shouting, clapping and yelling. The sound was amplified greatly in the sun room, because there was nothing to help absorb the sound. Just a design flaw and poor timing on our part. There were times my husband and I had to shout to hear each other. But the food and drinks were amazing. We’ll probably order take out next time though.

    We went for the Valentines dinner, we had reservations, but ultimately had to wait an additional 20-30 minutes after our set time. Which was fine, I expected a wait and we’ve eaten here twice in the past so it wasn’t a big deal. The atmosphere was good and all the food that was being served looked very delicious. Our waiter was prompt to serve us and brought our drinks right away. We ordered our meals, I had the NY strip but when I was delivered it looked like nothing that had passed by. The steak was fatty, shriveled, and cut up. I ordered it rare and it came out well done. My wife received her food, it was missing the sauce that came with it. So we waited for several minutes for our waiter to come back around to check on us. By the time he came back and provided the missing sauce her food got a little cold. I waited about 10-12 minutes for my food to come back. By now my wife was done eating and we had already been sitting for an hour. I ate my potatoes and a few bites of the new steak before we requested the check along with a to go box. Even the waiter couldn’t believe I was served the dried up piece of meat they attempted to give me the first time. The new steak was much more thick and flavorful. We were from out of town and the ride back was 2 hours. For that evening’s food quality and travel time we would’ve been better off eating somewhere locally.

    We arrived early before our reservation time and the hostess told us that they are running late have to wait 15 minutes which we don’t mind. I’ve precisely reserved a booth online and didn’t get that that was disappointment. Overall great ambiance, great food , awesome service! Have to give a 4 stars cause I didn’t get the booth!

    It was my daughter’s 24th birthday… Its a great date nite location, not so great for a 24th party with youngest attendee being 11, eldest being 80. Only 2 of the 7 attendees had been there before. The service was good. Scott was our waiter, he was very attentive until the pictures started being taken of the dressed up people but then once we asked for him, he was right back on top as our server! He was overall amazing!! The price was a little pricey — for a 24th birthday party — for date nite its normal - great! Overall 4 rating! Thank you

    The service was excellent as always, but the food quality was not up to standard. I got my usual steak and cake and the crab cakes tasted bland and did not have the flavor that I’m accustomed to at The Grove. I’m not sure if the recipe was changed but they were missing something. The mashed potatoes were bland and missed the mark. My wife got the salmon and it was bland and did not met the standard. If this was our first time, then we would prefer to go elsewhere. We will give them another chance and I’m hoping for better food quality in the future.

    We dine here often and enjoy our food. Last night we were not seated for 2 hours after our 7:45 reservations which were made almost a month prior to the date. Our friends which had a 7:00 reservation were also seated 2 hours late. The gentleman at the front seemed to have been overwhelmed. When we finally made it to our table . We ordered drinks and 2 bottles of wine. Then we gave our order. We got our first course quickly. The prosciutto was tough and the cantaloupe tasted a little strange. We had not even finished our first course and they brought our 2nd course and we had NOT even been served our wine! I asked the server to please not bring out our entrée, so quickly, as we had not had enough time to even finish the first course! The waitress said she was sorry but the kitchen was ready to go home! Really? We have been waiting for our table for 2 hours , obviously this table had not been rushed prior to our seating. The food was not up to par at all! Very disappointing. We had 4 people with us from out of town we wanted to impress with your restaurant. Everyone at our table had a complaint about their food. And, prior to taking our order 3 or 4 of us wanted to order the Seabass. By the time we sat down you all were out of the Seabass. One order of beef Wellington or the other meat 1st course was sent back as it was too tough. Our waitress on the other hand could not have been nicer and very efficient.

    I had a reservation for 7:00. We werewolves seated until 8:15. This was the second visit when we were not able to be seated at our reservation time. Food was really good and waitstaff provided attentive service. They need to explore a new system for scheduling reservations.

    The Grove Tyler is a very nice venue and we enjoyed the ambiance. We went for our NYE dinner. The people who joined for the visit are rather particular about what they prefer to eat. The menu on The Grove website had a varied types of food that our friends were willing to eat. We were never advised that The Grove was going to use a set special menu that did not allow us to have a choice of many items on the normal menu. In addition, the choices were tied with appetizers and salads which did not include some of the items on the normal menu. The price per person varied from $75 to $130 per person. We felt very deceived and probably would have chosen a different restaurant to celebrate the arrival of 2024. Our waitress was delightful. Very accommodating and helpful. We probably will not return to The Grove even though we enjoyed most of our meal. We spend almost $250 per couple and were not happy because of the substitute menu with no warning. Thanks for listening, rant over.

    Granted we went on a holiday, so it was a retricted menu and the restaurant was very busy, but for such a pricey restaurant (our bill for two people was $186 before tip -- and we did not have wine or cocktails), neither of us were at all impressed. The entrees arrived literally 10 seconds after we received our soup/salad. The duck meat had much gristle. The sea bass was overcooked, dry, and by far the worst sea bass I've ever been served. The garnish/sides portions were OK, though small. The rice underneath the sea bass (which was comprised of more mass than the sea bass on top) was disappointingly bland. The one saving grace of the meal was the wild mushroom soup. But for over $100 per person (with tip), for a bowl of soup to be the star of the meal did not provide enough motivation to ever return.

    Very nice place. Food was abundant and very good. Madison our waitress was exceptional. Noise level was not what I quite expected in a restaurant like this. Was on a date night with my wife and could hardly hear what she was saying. Was seated by a party of at least 12 or more individuals, birthday gathering, which probably should’ve been in a separate private room. Area was crowded and the couple beside us moved their chairs as the waiters were bringing food to the big party, over their heads, and she was scared she was going to have the food dumped on her. Will come back for special occasions.

    Lobster bisque and grown up grilled cheese sandwich were delicious for lunch. Only three wee lobster bits in the bisque (Bernard’s is much more generous with the lobster) but the flavor was delicious. The cocktails were great too - loved The Garnet!
