I was actually disappointed in the food quality and service. The salad I ordered, Reef's salad, was over dressed and some of the lettuce type used was sinewy. The salmon I had for my main course was too salty and really overpriced.

It was a bad experience all in all. I will not be patronizing this establishment anymore

The food was excellent. Custom pizza for appetizer. Entrees were beef tenderloin, spaghetti n meatballs, and a rice bowl with grilled salmon. All were excellent. I would definitely go back again. I don’t drink wine so I can’t comment on the selection, but the food was outstanding.

Grove was very nice! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable of the menu and the wine was quite tasty. We sat out on the patio, which was lovely and we got to hear the rain while staying nice and dry. The food was good as well. Overall, a satisfiable experience.

Have dined here many times. I appreciate the consistency of the food, good wine list and good, but not great, service. Keeping water glasses full is not too much to expect.
One thing about the menu I don’t like is there are no sides to choose from. I enjoy vegetables with my meal but the server just said “we don’t do that”.
Maybe they should.

We went here for an anniversary dinner and we were the only customers in the building. We ordered a bruschetta and meatball small plate as an appetizer. Once our apps and drinks were delivered the server did not check on us at all. We had planned to order dinner but by the time she came back around our drinks were empty, apps were completely finished and we had been sitting there for too long to want to continue dining. Do not recommend. It was a very odd experience.

Too many tables in outdoor area so literally on top of each other. Poorly trained & lack of servers & horrendous bus boys totally ignoring standard requests for silverware, dishes, water.
Management needs to get a handle on this.

Completely understandable with the shortage of waitstaff, but our waiter was less than attentive. Otherwise it was a beautiful night on the patio with excellent company.

We had a great experience!
We arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation time. We were asked if we would like indoor or patio seating. This was a pleasant surprise because when I made the reservation there were no patio seats available. We ordered cocktails instead of wine. Both our drinks were delicious (and strong!!). We had the cheese and charcuterie board for an appetizer and it was perfect. My husband ordered the beef tenderloin for his entree and I had the capellini pasta with grilled chicken. The only complaint we had the entire night is there was just a little more char on the tenderloin than my husband would have liked. But the food was absolutely delicious!
We will definitely return!

We ate outdoors on a Friday evening. The weather was perfect, and there were ceiling fans too. Everything was great . Four of us shared a couple of pizzas plus salads . I love the Chablis wine which I discovered here when they had half price wines on Mondays (hint, hint 😏). We had a lovely time .

Enjoyed location/atmosphere. Food was good, but waitress seemed like she was covering too large an area to be attentive. Asked for more coffee, never refilled, ask for an additional side, but it was forgotten.

Had a great time! We shared bruschetta, a bottle of wine, and a few pizzas and everything was delicious! Service was not bad but not great. Had a great time regardless though. We will definitely be going back to try some other things on the menu!

Hostess was unfriendly, tried to seat us outside when reservation was specific to inside. Reservation was at 6:30, restaurant was not full and did not fill up at all and yet we were seated right on the walkway to the kitchen. Definitely better placement was available but hostess would not move us “again”. She didn’t move us in the first place as the original reservation was for indoor. She just had an attitude.
