Grove Bay Hospitality Group was created in 2010 with the idea that it would be fully connected to the community. Like our logo, our founders and core team members have deep roots in South Florida. For us, this connection to our community can be in the form of opening a great restaurant, providing new jobs for our fellow Miamians, or even donating our time and resources to the many charities we support.

Named Best Places to Work in 2017 and 2022 by South Florida Business Journal, Grove Bay aspires to enhance the lives of its guests, employees, communities and investors as a restaurant industry leader by developing innovative, memorable and highly successful restaurant concepts. From ingredients to customer service, Grove Bay is committed to delivering only the highest quality across all levels of operation. We believe that if we provide our guests with exceptional hospitality experiences, if we train and take care of our people, and if we’re an active member of our community, then the performance and profits will take care of themselves.

In 2022, two of Grove Bay Hospitality Group’s restaurants were recognized by the world’s most famous restaurant rating guide, Michelin. Stubborn Seed received one Michelin star and Red Rooster Overtown was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand. Additionally, through incredible chef partnerships, Grove Bay has been a multi-semi-finalist nominee by the James Beard Foundation.


“To Enhance People’s Lives –
One Person and One Neighborhood at a Time.”

“Virtually nothing else is as important as how one is made to feel in any business transaction. Hospitality exists when you believe the other person is on your side. The converse is just as true. Hospitality is present when something happens for you. It is absent when something happens to you. Those two simple prepositions – for and to – express it all”

| Danny Meyer, founder and CEO of Union Square Hospitality |

To exceed our guests’ expectation with memorable dining experiences by paying attention to every detail and taking care of their every need. Our recipe for success involves three key ingredients:

· A well-trained and thoughtful staff that extends from our front door to table side, whose mission is to address guests’ every need and provide an exceptional dining experience.

· Fresh and wholesome foods, flavorful recipes, careful preparation and attractive presentation. Local vendors and ingredients are sourced whenever possible.

· An ambiance and dining experience that is pleasant and engaging, and that represents excellent customer value and satisfaction.

“I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies.”

| Lawrence Bossidy, former COO of GE and author |

To foster a working environment where employees, management and ownership respects, trusts and takes care of each other.

Our philosophy on people is based upon 3 remarkably simple goals:

· Recruit and retain honest and caring individuals

· Focus on developing individuals

· Treat everyone fairly and with respect

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

| Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom |

To be a good corporate citizen and recognized member of our community.

We succeed because members of our community visit our restaurants and allow us to serve them. Giving back to the community is the least we can do in return.

Grove Bay Hospitality Group believes in leading by example. We provide direct financial support and hands-on involvement to a variety of charitable and educational organizations.

“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.”

| Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company |

To consistently outperform our personal and financial goals.

We believe that providing memorable experiences to our guests, taking care of our employees and giving back to the community pave the way for restaurant profits and return on investment.

When we look out for one another, our success in this highly competitive marketplace is virtually guaranteed.










We look for individuals who have a passion for the food industry, a natural inclination to always do the right thing, and an unrelenting work ethic. Someone with genuine kindness combined with a sense of empathy are essential to our hospitality culture. Once we find these rare individuals, we do everything we can to make sure they’re happy to work with our group and want to stay with our restaurant family for a long time. We’ve curated development and training programs that are individually created for those that show an interest in moving up.
