I still remembered my first experience at The Grove ten years ago- I was transported to culinary heaven. Ten years later, the food and service are still top notch. I can't fault anything!

$145 dollars for a degustation to be told another $25.00 for two courses, my husbands birthday we left to go to McDonald's . We told the waiter we did not want lots of seafood , his interpretation was light seafood how can you honestly pay that much money and please yourself. Flavours might be nice in SEAFOOD, which again we... More

There was nothing about our dining experience that could not be described as sensational. We had champagne that was within a very favourable price range from the wine list. The head chef was known to us but I did not disclose our association to receive any preferential care or attention. Fabulous.

I have visited The Grove a few times over the years and it never disappoints. I have been fortunate enough to try all the other pretenders such as Euro, The French Cafe, Clooneys, Sidart and many more. None of them have that touch of genuine class in both the food and the staff. They both deserve the plaudits and clearly... More

Had a wonderful dinner with my partner to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and caring. Special mention to the outstanding sommelier and wine list! We chose to be surprised by the chef and the food was incredible. The small degustation was way enough to fill our appetite. You can not go wrong if you choose The Grove for... More

Huge kudos to the Grove's groovy team for going above & beyond, especially the kitchen team working hard behind the scenes & Megan(?) the sommelier. They have a great passion in each of respective fields, are knowledgeable & observant without being overbearing or pretentious, particularly when it came to explaining the dishes coming out of the kitchen. A warm ambiance,... More

If you want New Zealand influenced European fusion dining at its very best then look no further that the grove. I had no preconceptions and no expectations and left feeling stunned at how very good the grove is. The service is faultless, attentive, informative and moved between staff seamlessly. Choose from two degustation menus with optional wine matches or by... More

We were here five years ago and had a great meal. This dinner was very creative, modern cuisine. Very good but very expensive. Service was exceptional. Wine offering was outstanding.

From the moment you enter you know you are in a great restaurant and that you going to have a wonderful meal. The meal lived up to the atmosphere in every way. Attentive, but unobtrusive, service, an informed wine waiter and a pleasant interior. [Not one of Auckland's dark cave-like holes masquerading as a restaurant!] The seafood was outstanding -...
