The Grove was the first restaurant my wife and I visited on our honeymoon. When we booked the reservation, we let the hostess know that it was our honeymoon. She made sure we had a great table and sprinkled flower petals over it. The night started off great. We paid $300 for the five-course dinner (with wine pairing) and also... More

One of the top 3 food experiences I've had. We've eaten at many top restaurants in the US and the Grove offered an experience at least equal if not superior to them. The decor is modern yet homely, food was expertly prepared, menu was impeccable, and the service and attention to detail superb. Definitely a must if you're visiting Auckland.... More

My Wife and I have traveled the world, dining at many of the top 100 rated restaurants, including the Quay in Sydney, currently rated # 77. I say this, because after dining at the Grove, I find it surprising that it is not included in the list as well. Smaller and more intimate, but on par in every respect. Food... More

The food is extraordinary - at the same standard of a Robuchon, Gagnaire, Ducasse. Many creative and exciting combinations and textures: raw lamb tartar with king crab was a revelation. Very local, NZ ingredients with a judicious smattering of the 'best of the best' ingredients from around the world such as Japaese Wagyu beef and white alpine strawberries. The service... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at The Grove last evening after a long flight from the US. The friendly and accommodating staff was matched my the exquisite and exotic food choices. Our server, Shannon, was great.

Went for dinner a couple of weeks ago, great food and attentive service. Only gripe maybe a couple more options for craft beer. However will be back.

The Grove never disappoints. By far the best food, wine and service in the city. Every mouthful is followed by a long ummmmm.

I went with two friends, as all 3 of us hadn't been before but had been meaning to. We went for the mini degustation, but we didn't know that meant we all had to have the same options - but this was fine as we all wanted the same 4 things, luckily! We got some complementary starters which were very... More
