Review of The GROVE

10670 Boardwalk Loop, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202

Overall Rating


1st off our table was wet, the hostess left us standing in the middle while she went and got something to dry it with. She accidentally used my napkin and gave me a wet napkin. 😳 the waitress had to go back to the kitchen 3 times to verify the special was GF. The manager came out to verify allergy and said kitchen staff was changing gloves and utensils. Great but i think the kitchen staff thinks GF means no flavor or seasoning. One crab cake with sauce no flavor, one wedge salad with jalapeño ranch no flavor, one salmon oscar style with berneise sauce no flavor, one grouper with lemon blur blanc no flavor and two waters. We looked like salt and pepper freaks trying to get some taste to emerge. Not worth the $120 bill. Giving 3 stars because they at least tried.
