    We used The Grove as our ceremony & reception space in the Treehouse (second floor). It was absolutely magical. With the cityscape in the background, and everything lit up at night, you could not beat this view. The floor to ceiling glass windows in the reception space was also breathtaking. Every guest made a comment about how unique and awesome our venue was! The staff was so great to work with and were very accommodating with our requests. Best day of our lives!

    We had an EXCELLENT experience with The Grove. The catering team was so easy to schedule with and did a wonderful job accommodating our event. We met shortly after booking the venue and a few other times to take measurements, do a walk-through with my groom and day-of coordinator, and also to set the menu. The food was seasonal, local and absolutely delicious! The woman who worked with us on our event provided us with a PDF layout of the whole event space (including ceremony, gift table, DJ, cake table, place card table, etc.) and updated it with table placement according to how many guests we were expecting as we got back to her with updated headcounts. The wait and catering staff was so professional and did a great job on everything, including timing and accommodating the event as it naturally ran. There was no cake cutting fee (came with event) and no event rental fee as long as we met the food & beverage minimum.

    The restaurant offered a variety of spaces, and we chose to book the whole second floor as to have the Treehouse Deck for the ceremony and Treehouse Bar/Vista Room for the reception. The space accommodated all 115 of our guests, but had enough space for up to 150 to attend both the ceremony and reception. The contemporary style of the venue was absolutely perfect as it drew in natural surroundings of Discovery Green Park, which surrounds the venue, and the downtown skyline. The Vista Room is lined with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that we were able to open during the event as it ended up being a perfect November day outside. The contemporary style allowed for minimal decorations as the natural beauty of the venue and it's surroundings were enough to provide a beautiful ambiance. There was even an arts fair happening in the park that our guests so enjoyed visiting during the event and even bought us a few special wedding day presents from. :) Our venue totally made our event and all in all it was the absolutely PERFECT day.
