Excellent in every way. We haven’t been here in a long time but returned for a graduation celebration dinner. It didn’t disappoint. Everyone loved their food and the service was excellent, so accommodating…notwithstanding my daughter’s severe food allergies and a party of 9 that showed up at different times. We’ll be back♥️

Brunch & Dinner
In the best area of 14th Street, modern homage to authentic Mexican Cuisine, featuring local ingredients that result in exquisite and vibrant creations.

It´s all about the corn - the maiz - at this upscale Mexican stunner. Four kinds are turned into fresh masa daily for the tacos, tamales, and other corn-bassed essentials, and even the art on the walls is corn-themed.

Vegetables and fish are one of the Chef's great specialties, including tuna tostada and yellow ceviche, culminating with the traditional catch of the day.

Mezcal Room an extensive bar downstairs, we have a lot of Mexican spirits, including most famous Oaxacan beverage mezcal. There’s a wide spectrum of mezcals, with dozens of flavors ranging

We are a universe of colors, of textures, of flavors; the print of hands worn down legends that draw the magic of a culture willing to be discovered.

Located on the grounds of the Oak Creek community, the Grove stems from a rich history that began in 1819, where the original eight hundred and fifty acres of land was filled with Oak trees that has now become the foundation for this community. The word Grove serves as a metaphor between the many families who represent our community and a group of oaks which is the symbol of “strength” and “endurance”. The Grove is a casual fine dining experience meant to bring family and friends together. Sleek, inviting, and comfortable design elements makes The Grove the perfect place to Be, Eat, and Celebrate.

Our restaurant's atmosphere is what we would call casual elegance. On our main floor, we have a full dining room, bar, and we call this our "wine bar". The wine bar also has front porch and back patio seating as well. Our wine list has over 100 wines from various regions. We offer multiple bottled wines and a phenomenal selection by the glass as well. Our basement, or as we all know it the pub, has 12 beers on draft, an extensive liquor selection, and a very inviting and comforting atmosphere. Both floors offer the same supper menu, with the exception of the happy hour menu. That is only served in the pub Tuesday-Friday from 4-6. Our third floor is used for overflow seating and private events. Our motto is that when you're here, you're home, and we strive to meet that with every guest. Come in and enjoy a beautiful, local, farm to table meal. We'd love to have you!

The service was excellent. When we told our server that the coffee was very weak, he replaced it with freshly brewed coffee and was completely gracious about it. When our first course was not hot enough, he again gladly had it re-made without any grumbling. Instead, he treated us to free glasses of champagne for the inconvenience. Excellent food, large portions, good value.
