Perfect roast beef and yorkshire puddings, paired with delicious wine and exceptional service. Love it when Restaurant Month is on and the Grove is open on a Sunday. Fantastic restaurant, recommend it every time.

Restaurant month Sunday dinner- what could be better than rare fillet, all the trimmings and the most enormous yorkie. WE had a lovely time, with all of us experiencing the whole menu. Service was wonderful from our arrival to our departure, and the food met...and exceeded expectations. We were almost silent except for the groans of pleasure and appreciation. Thanks everyone. Only mis-step was exactly that, an uneven flagstone made one of our party almost come to grief- Council need to fix!!More

It was a birthday celebration, but it does not need to be a special event to visit this special,place. From the moment you walk in the door, the outstanding service starts. All the wait team apply the obviously extensive training to their customers. It’s delightful....And the experience gets even better when the food starts arriving. Why did I leave it so long to return..don’t delay. It’s a great experience of fine dining.More

We booked a table for a business dinner for our clients. All of them enjoyed the food. The staff was very accomodating with our requests and helped us arrange everything beforehand. It was a lovely experience. Would definitely recommend it.

It's hard not to sound waaaay over the top when it comes to describing the experience at The Grove. The service is exactly the right balance between professional and relaxed, the room is beautiful and the food - the food 👊- is incredible. Go there...now and then save up (coz it ain't cheap, nor should it be at this level...) so that you can go again.More

A warm Winter dining place with a gallary of fine dishes awating. Booking in advance is essential, and if the entrance made more easier to find thaty would be much appreciated ! Julia

You should be fine with casual shoes, Auckland is a pretty informal city.

Hi Missjess8, This is a fine dining restaurant and not ideal for young children in my opinion.
