The food is always spectacular and just a bit unusual. If you're looking for meat and potatoes, keep looking. It's a small place so you may want to make reservations. I've been back a few times and have loved it every time.

It's not often that a restaurant launches an ambitious menu and delivers on every dish. I had five dishes - to sample the menu - and every single one was solid. The menu is creative and global, the service staff helpful, and the space is an eclectic (without being hippy) room with a comfortable ambience. Definitely going back.

I live in Chicago but am from GR and have been waiting to go to the Grove for a long time. My longtime GR friends put it best - the menu changes constantly so how much you like it depends on the menu at the time. The best appetizer we had was a beef tartare. The flavors were amazing and... More

The Grove has been consistently one of the best places for great food in Grand Rapids. Recently I hosted a group of 9 people for a business dinner. Service was only ok, and surprisingly the food was only ok as well - but price and I think their own aspirations promise top notch service and food. The high expectations were... More

The food was excellent, we were celebrating my husband's birthday and all 6 of us enjoyed our food selections. I must insist you try the butterscotch pudding, you will be thinking about long after dinner is over. I was a tad dismayed that since most of the food is locally sourced that they did not include a selection of Michigan... More

A late Sunday evening stop proved to be the best surprise! My husband and I shared both our appetizers and entrées with one another. It would be impossible to say which one was better - everything we had was superb. The menu changes daily as they are farm to table. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly (Danny) and provided excellent... More
