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.

First time at The Grove even though I have lived in Boca for many years. My friend who accompanied me declared it his best meal ever in Florida. Swordfish was exquisite. Octopus excellent. Key lime panna cotta for dessert. Fabulous. Cannot wait to go back.

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!

Cool restaurant, great food, but the service was VERY slow. It took us 1 1/2 hours before our entrees were served. Apparently they only had two chefs in the kitchen. Luckily my wife and I weren't in a rush!

I love going to The Grove for both business meetings and gatherings with family and friends. I don't mind making the drive from Miami for the relaxing ambiance and the phenomenal food and wine selections. Now that they have a late night bar on the side, their craft cocktail offerings are top notch as well. Their bartender was a mixologist at a handful of well known bars/restaurants in Miami and has now brought his talents to Delray Beach. I would highly recommend this place for any occasion, but make sure to make a reservation as it is an intimate space and it fills up quickly. It's now also a great late night spot as well.

Used to be one of our favorites in Delay but unfortunately no more. We typically visited on special occasions as it is a bit pricey but the food and service justified the price premium over other fine dining in Delray Beach. This visit was just okay and therefore not worth the added cost. With the additional seating capacity and the kitchen remaining the same size it took almost 2 hours for our meal. We mentioned that we felt the food was coming out rather slowly and the manager responded with a flippant "sorry but they were busy". We asked to speak with the manager at the end of our meal but were ignored so we left a written message on the bill as I think the management needs to know why we won't be going back. Good news is that there is plenty of other options in this great little foodie hamlet of ours.

A true gem here in Delray. Incredible balance and taste to the food. This kitchen clearly knows what it is doing. The whole evening ran like a well oiled machine even though they we extremely busy. At no point did we feel rushed and just enjoyed the evening immensely. It is pricey but well worth every cent. Thank you for a wonderful time and be assured we will be back.

Outstanding dining experience at The Grove, unique jewel restaurant nested in the heart of the Pineapple Grove District. Most romantic and intimate restaurant in Delray Beach, the food prepared by talented Chef, Michael Haycook, will blow you away not only by its delicious taste but also by its presentation, freshness and creativity. Be prepared for an amazing dining experience that will just make you want to come back for more!
