Second time back because we love it so much! Off the beaten path from Atlantic Ave, very small but special place with delicious food and even better dessert!

Again an exceptional meal. Was here sometime back and the food and service as good if not better. Small points that will not deter us from returning but should be looked at was the fact that in a restaurant of this caliber one should be able to transfer the bar bill over to the restaurant. This is something that has been around of some time and most have found a system to make it convenient for the guest and not the bartender. Secondly to have a fold up table in this type of restaurant reflects poorly on the quality that they have here . Still a great experience.

Always Fab ... Fab...Fab. We’re big fans and longtime customers. The quality of the food is incredible!! Very unique preparations. Though they do have so some simple dishes , it’s not the place to go to to eat bland.
A very special spot !!!

The Grove has an very nice menu which never fails to please. Our party of four had an assortment of dishes, and all were deemed excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

The Grove is the perfect trifecta—amazing food, great atmosphere and fantastic service. Small and intimate, it feels like the chef is only cooking for you. The brioche chicken is my husband’s favorite dish ever and the Nutella donuts are divine.

These magnificent reviews on here... so had to try. Had an outside table which was excellent. The welcome brioche also wonderful. Wine list is a carefully selected range for most anyone at a fair price point. Our dishes were at least good, some very good but I think shy of the excellence others cite. The tuna plus foie had a surprising texture like a pancake. Not what I was expecting. Portions definitely fair for the price.

Made a reservation through open table and told them it was our anniversary celebration. Restaurant was only 1/3 full. Given a table isolated against a wall. Told the owner I don’t like to sit by a wall. He told me that I didn’t reserve a “table”. I said I made a reservation. He said that he has regulars who like their table. He reluctantly put us at a corner table. He the came over about 3 minutes later with some nonsensical story about having to change our table. We were very uncomfortable. If it wasn’t our Anniversary I would have walked out. Ordered lamb chops which were mediocre. Not returning. Too many restaurants to choose from.

This is our second visit to The Grove, and will certainly make it to our top five in Delray. This trip, we had appetizers for dinner. The pasta was up to every standard, the beet salad was delicious with a pickled fennel bite that added a great zip. The stand out was the 'special egg' dish. Creamy polenta on the bottom with bacon, a perfect poached egg, and gruyere foam on top. Very creative and delicious. Highly recommend.

The grove is a great little spot off Atlantic Ave. we went for a romantic date night and that’s exactly what it was. They have a separate bar next door. Cool spot, looks like a garage... great drinks and a bar menu of appetizers. The fish dip and dirty martinis were great. We then went next door for dinner. A bit pricey but worth it. Food was yum, atmosphere was chill,quiet and romantic. I loved the open kitchen concert as well.

We will definitely go back. :)

We always enjoy our visits to The Grove! Having dined here multiple times, I have to say, Chef Michael's combination of Tuna Carpaccio with Foie Gras was probably the best thing I have eaten at this restaurant. Always creative, always delicious, always an enjoyable meal!

The Grove is by far the best restaurant in Delray and one of the top floor n Palm Beach County. The food is always outstanding.. The menu is limited, but there are options for all tastes. I started with grilled octopus, followed by a fillet that was melt-in-the-mouth wonderful. My wife had a salad and fish, both of which she said were perfect. The service is always great. There is a great bar. Jay, the bartender, mixes a great drink and always remembers my wife’s favorite drink. If you haven’t been to the Grove and you are a gourmand, you must try it.

I have mixed feelings about reviewing The Grove because it is so fantastic. If more people understood how truly special the kitchen is, it would be even more crowded, perhaps so crowded as to become an almost impossible opition for spontaneous dining. I seldom can project my schedule for days in advance. so I may be cheatng myself out of great meals by increasing the competition for tables So on 2nd thought, don't go to the Grove. Go some place cheaper.

Our dining experience from beginning to end was perfect. We started with the octopus, scallops, and roasted beet salad; they were all lovely, but the octopus was the star.
For dinner we had the local catch and the short ribs; both were perfectly seasoned and prepared.
The experience was wonderful!
