This is my favourite Auckland Resturant. Every time I go the service, food and generally the whole experience is perfect. Recommend for any very special occasion, or just because you love fine dining!

I can truly say that our night at The Grove was simply amazing. From the cocktails to dessert this was one of the best dining experiences I have had.

Gorgeous food, attentive staff and a oil ambiance made it the perfect place for an anniversary date. Make sure you book in advance.

We visited New Zealand for four weeks and thought it might be a great way to start our journey with a dinner at The Grove. So we visited the restaurant on our first evening. And it was the right decision! We had a lovely table at the window and our waiter Pierre from Dijon did a great job. We had... More

We visited Auckland right after Christmas and the city was not surprisingly quiet probably because the residents were all on holiday vacays as well. So The Grove was surprisingly busy and full of holiday-makers. Go here for a nice intimate dinner date, although the resto accommodates bigger groups of diners too. The setting was definitely fine dining with a casual... More

My wife and I had an incredible New Years Eve Experience at The Grove. The staff was professional from making the reservations weeks in advance to every last detail before we paid the bill. The restaurant was eloquent, but made you feel comfortable. Each food was delicious and incredible. I do not eat pork and they were able to accommodate... More

Located in a quiet square with a view of the city, we managed to nab a last-minute reservation at The Grove during our stay in Auckland and it was well worth it. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant; many of the other diners were couples. The place is bright, with cool music, and candles and succulents in the windows. We... More

Loved the degustation. Great wait staff, very attentive. Took our time over the seven courses. Did not feel hurried. Plenty of time for a chat between courses.

We were lucky enough to get a New Years evening reservation while visiting Auckland. With their location, we could walk out the door to experience the amazing fireworks display from the Sky Tower. Upon arrival, they knew our name and seated us promptly. The staff were all very friendly, attentive, and very well trained. The restaurant is long and beautiful,... More
