Chose The Grove for my birthday meal, and what a great choice it was! We were a table of 5 and all communications with the restaurant beforehand were professional and helpful (lots of changes from us in terms of number of diners!). We also had one guest in a wheelchair, and the restaurant team were more than happy to help him up the 8 or so steps.
Service - humorous, helpful, intelligent and almost telepathic! Our main waiter was brilliant and I swear could hear my thoughts from across the room, he appeared at the right moment every time and really made the evening a relaxed and fun occasion.
Totally unhurried and nothing felt like too much trouble.
Drinks - great range of beers, cocktails and wines - definitely recommend the pomegranate Cosmo. A cocktail was even created for my friend according to her tastes.
Food - loved the simple choice - 4 or 7 courses!
The pre-courses were divine and beautifully presented, the smoked bone marrow butter with the bread was incredible.
All the courses were creative, delicious and stunningly presented. Only comment would be that the cut of meat/choice of fish could perhaps have been more superior eg the beef dish was Wagyu Rump - at this level perhaps fillet steak would have been a better option. Having said that, all the meats/seafood were well cooked and tender.
The several desserts in the 7 course option were all beautiful, especially the Absinthe Bombe Alaska created at the table! One of our group even had a chance to try it out!
The 7 course option is certainly worth opting for - don’t be worried, the amounts are small and we were perfectly satisfied at the end of the evening without feeling overly full.
All in all, a brilliant night out and highly recommended.
