We are happy that we tried Grove. We had reservations on a Friday night. Parking was tough to find a spot so we used a third party valet right in front of the restaurant. Although place was busy, we were seated right away. Our server was great and timed everything perfectly. Food and drinks were excellent. We opted for the... More

This was our first visit to The Grove. The service was excellent starting with the person who greeted us at the door. Our waitress was very helpful and really knew the menu. We ordered the 3 course tasting menu and each course was served when we were ready for it. No rushing. The wine we ordered was very good. Since... More

I have never been disappointed in Grove. It's always tasted fresh and delicious. My favorite dish by far though is the butterscotch pudding dessert. Best dessert ever!

Second time here and was as good as the first experience. I love the farm to table concept - they have an interesting menu - everything works when put together for your meal which is a work of art in itself when delivered to you. Some of the ingredients I would not have even thought go together but here, it... More

Enjoyed a dinner for two in the bar at the few bistro tables that are scattered there. Great attentive service and wonderful crafted cocktails. We shared the beef tartare, followed by prix fixe options and sweet potato soup. All were delicious, not over done in their presentation (as in the past ) and ample sizes. Our meal culminated in a...

We have been here in the past and I've written a previous review. This was our first time back since Jeremy took over the kitchen and I couldn't be happier with the result. In the interest of full disclosure, my wife and I frequented Jeremy's former Muskegon restaurant, Mia and Grace, and always enjoyed their creations, so we had high... More

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.
