The service provided for their Valentine's day menu was absolutely fantastic. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing, and they even had a string quartet to make it special. Overall, I am extremely happy with the dinner and made our night very special.

The Grove provides just what is offered: great food, lovely ambiance, kindness in service. Their Valentine’s Day event also provided a careful escape from our isolation—the dessert bar and violin performances were incredible.

The Valentine’s Day special was fantastic. Great restaurant and bar. It is definitely a high-class establishment, but it offers a great value.

Everything we ordered was great! We first had the avocado appetizer. It was yummy. I had the filet. It was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. The potatoes were the best. Not sure what the sauce was but I need the recipe.

The Grove is a nice, upscale place. I took my mom for a night out on a Wednesday, and we practically had the place to ourselves. Our waiter was attentive, helpful, & friendly. The food was delicious and unique.

It was a tad pricey, so if you're looking for something cheap, this is not the place. We had an appetizer, 2 meals, and one iced tea, and the bill was just around $100 with tip.

I would definitely recommend this for a nice dinner out!

Nice environment and decoration. I served with a very polite waiter, but I had fettuccine with grilled chicken which didn't taste good and even the chicken wasn't cooked fully! I was sick for the whole next day! I will never go to this restaurant anymore!

Sat next to a kids birthday party on a Saturday night. Ambiance is similar to a large open arcade.

The food took time. My drink was very delayed. The food was not what we ordered. Still was charged without any comps for the inconvenience or wrong dish.

The lights weren’t on which is why I made the reservation for this time of year which was a major bummer. Service and food were very good though.

Food is still very good. Amazing grove mojito. Good steak and salmon, spices always on point. We sat outside, tables were properly distanced, service and other COVID measures were spot on.

Everything was excellent, but for one exception. Bread plate was a bit stale. Redfish BLT quite tasty and unique. Shrimp ceviche was excellent as well.

A lot of fun, and very romantic. Especially during the holidays with lights all over the trees at the parks and the tree and garland tastefully decorated inside. Excellent food and great service. My wife enjoyed her birthday surprise. Thank you all so much.

Outstanding! The outdoor seating made us feel incredibly safe. even outside there was significant distancing between tables. note you must make reservations in advance and request outdoor seating these tables fill up fast.

The salmon and the steak were both extremely good. The drinks from the bar were very solid as well.

We'll be back soon.

We spend Halloween evening at the Grove. The menu has been abbreviated due to the pandemic but we still were able to select something delicious. We selected outdoor dining and the weather fully cooperated with us. Enjoyed watching everyone walking by with their entertaining costumes. We enjoyed the evening very much.

The great cocktails and the kale Caesar salad are amazing!! (I dream of them in between visits!)
Regina is a friendly hostess who always remembers my daughter and her fiancé so it feels so welcoming when we come in.

First off all, staff make is so hard and weird to get a table. I made the request outside, so they explain that we can go on the second floor but they will not going to serve. Then what's the point to go there. So we just sit outside, and feel like i'm in simple coffee shop. It's really disappointing.

We ate outside in October. When night fell, they brought us a small, lit globe. It was beautiful. The crowd from the attractions at Discovery Green were close enough to see and hear, but far enough that there was still plenty of privacy and quiet. The service was exceptional. The food was amazing. It was a bit pricy, but well-worth it. Try the water!! They distill in-house. It’s fantastic!

The hostess didn't seem to be too friendly but our server Rick more than made up for it. We sat outside downstairs and the only thing I can say that was bad was the ants and flies. I would come back and maybe sit inside
