Best Restaurants in Grand Rapids
This place has a spectacular view
of downtown GR, the river, and off into the distance. The food was fantastic, the drinks were excellent, and our server was very polite and knowledgeable."

This restaurant was outstanding
and we will be back, if you can ask for Ian. He is professional, knowledgeable and an overall fantastic server. Our meal could not have gone better and we will be back."

View was fantastic. First time
here and we brought two out of town guests. Service was excellent. Food, however was horrible. Mostly overcooked and dried out. It's not that tough to get food to the table that is not over cooked. Very disappointing and embarrassing. Would not even think about going back. Sometimes I just want to go into the kitchen and drag the chef out to the table, and tell him, "here, you eat this stuff." It's hard to believe they don't know what they're sending out to their customers to eat."

The Pork Chop was a very good
dish, flavorful and paired with other unique flavored sides (for those that don't want anything too exotic). :) The lamb was not so great, there was not really any flavor on the meat and it was sitting on a poured liquid that just seemed like a glorified A1 sauce. Our reservation was for 7:45pm on a Friday and we requested a window seat. Although the restaurant was still half empty (and we were there to celebrate a special occasion) we were told they could not accommodate the request. However, they did allow us to move to a table by the window once one became available. Overall it seemed overpriced for the decor and food but it is one of the better city views. Go once just so you can say you did. ;)"

In some ways, the changes in
Cygnus since its original conception exemplify and parallel the changes in the Grand Plaza itself—the hotel of which this restaurant was conceived as, in every sense of the word, the pinnacle. In those early days, the Amway Grand was unafraid to be informed by local traditions, history, and tastes; it was also willing to depart from the standard-issue corporate hotel formula. No more. With the covering over of the amazing skylights through which one could glimpse the constellation for which it was named, one wonders why the name was kept at all. Dinner was fine, but the price was higher than comparable quality in Boston or New York. There were, sadly, no local options (not even fish?) on the menu."

Cygnus has the bet view of the
Grand River and the West side of Grand Rapids in the city. Great, friendly and professional service that is both attentive but never intrusive. Excellent location for a great meal and experience any day of the week and a beautiful place for a date."

Terrible food and 160 dollars
later. Very expensive and definitely not worth it. The ambience and view is beautiful but the food was awful."

An all around great experience.
The food, service, and ambience were perfect."

We enjoyed our evening at Cygnus.
We haven't been there for several years, and it was fun to go back . Good (not great) service; food was imaginative and tasty. The loud (really loud) scene at the bar for a good part of the evening made conversation difficult, though. Not what I expected at Cygnus."

Our party ordered many different
items and everthing was delicious. The staff was professional, friendly and knowledgable about their menu. I would eat there again. I also appreciate the gluten free items. They are clearly marked."

The entire experience was fabulous
for our wedding anniversary. We do Cygnus every year. Great service. Great food. Great view. Great wine."

This restaurant is truly
International Dining at it's best. Food was fabulous. Steaks and seafood were to die for together with the deserts. Would go back there tomorrow and try all different items. The views from the 27th floor are breathtaking. Get a window seat. Staff were very attentive but not overbearing. There when you needed them. Give it a try, you won't be sorry."

I went there for my 3 year wedding
anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful, service was friendly and we loved the food. However, there was a little incident. One of the main dishes had a hair in it :( The restaurant manager went to apologize at our table, replaced the dish, removed one of our drinks from the bill and added a small dessert to our order at no cost. I work at a restaurant and understand these kind of things happen even at a 5 star restaurant. I didn't want to be a horrible guest and accepted the apology from management because I was happy how the restaurant handled the situation and would definitively come back and recommend it to anyone for a special occasion.

From the complimentary valet
parking, to the exceptional service, to the incredible food, Cygnus 27 offers a memorable dining experience! The staff was beyond professional. The view is tough to top. The food was stunning both visually and by taste."

We dined at Cygnus 27 for our 20th
anniversary. Everything met or exceeed our expectations. The food was delicious andc the service was perfect. The view was lovely and the noise level was reasonable. Thank you for a lovely night!"

This was a great venue for a group
of colleagues to meet for dinner and drinks for a work celebration. The service was outstanding the views of Grand Rapids were beautiful. This is would be a great place for a special occasion or a drink at the bar to see the views."
Dined on 5/21/2014
The view from the 27th floor is
the best in all of Grand Rapids. You should come for the view but the food brings the quality from great to awesome. For a relaxing fie dining experience or just drinks in the bar Cygnus comes through every time. Over the past year The menu is creative and offers unique foods prepared to perfection."

Great option for dinner watching
the sky change from amber hues at sunset to twinkling lights of the city. Noise level can be high on weekend nights due to the lounge area directly next to the dining area. This can rather intrusive to a quiet, romantic dinner. We were disappointed with being told they had no octopus for that night, despite this being a signature dish with rave reviews. Overall, good with food quality and service. Complementary valet is very helpful. "

Service was great, food was great.
The only downside was the mojito we ordered, it was very watered down, the worst one I've ever had in a restaurant. This was a small negative in an overall wonderful experience. "
Dined on 4/25/2014
Lovely view, attentive wait staff,
lots of ambiance. The entrees were delicious and the presentation of the chocolate dessert was amazing! Highly recommend the restaurant as well as the Amway where we also had a beautiful view from a tower room. I can't think of a thing that could have added to a wonderful and memorable experience. "

My family and I went to Easter
Brunch at Cygnus 27 because my daughter is a student at GVSU. Although the the brunch is a little on the pricey side, I found that it was worth the extra money. The food, service and view were outstanding and we would go back."
Dined on 4/20/2014
Cygnus27 accommodated our gluten
and dairy free needs well, and was convenient as we were staying at the hotel. The value is more in the experience than the food - the view is just breathtaking. We would probably not dine here again, but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening."

We had read great things about
Cyngus 27 through Open Table. And we were not disappointed. The menu had an Asian flair with Asian slaw and wonderful lettuce leaves to be curled around chicken. Also sushi! The presentation of the appetizers was outstanding. Our server, Katie?? was wonderful and helpful without hovering. My husband's scallops were wonderful as was my chicken. I feel like I am exaggerating with all my adjectives, but really I am not. The restaurant is on the 27th floor of the Amway Grand Hotel--so the view was magnificent--another adjective! We have dined at several Open Table first-class restaurants in Grand Rapids, and Cyngus 27 is our favorite!"

who were visiting from Atlanta, to Cygnus 27. Everything was perfect from the food to atmosphere to wine to service. Thank you for a great experience for all of us."

If I remember correctly, our
server was Zack and he was very good. We brought our sister for her first brunch at Cygnus, and he was very interactive with her and my wife. A good server, witty and attentive. The sushi chef was great as usual, everything was spot on. Thanks and we will see you in the future. The Walkinhoods."

We had brunch with a group of
friends to say thank you for the help they gave us during our wedding . The food was amazing! The small plates from the menu were such a hit with everyone in our group! As well as the desert table ! Everything was soo good! They all loved the champagne, I loved that they catered to me being pregnant and brought out a bottle of saint Julians non alcoholic juice for me ! The mix ins for the champagne and sparkling juice were delish also! Our server was very attentive and did a fantastic job! We will be coming back again!!"

This was our first time at Cygnus
27. The ambience of the restaurant is what catches your attention when first arriving ... On the 27th floor with a panoramic view of the city ... We were seated and able to enjoy a beautiful sunset as we enjoyed a fantastic meal. The staff were extremely helpful, courteous, and attentive throughout our stay ... The food was great from preparation to presentation ... And our drinks were pretty good too (they were pretty potent!). All in all we had a very enjoyable evening and will go back again."

Early dinner meant no crowd and
quiet ambience. Excellent appetizers and entrees."

Too high of price for a brunch.
For those who eat moderately, cost is high $40 each. Unless you sit for hours and eat to gluttony, there are other places with better prices. Gratuity is added automatically. You have no choice. Acoustics bad, too noisy."
Dined on 3/16/2014
Every year we make attending the
brunch as a special holiday for the entire family. It is a great place to enjoy the magical views of the city and make memories by sharing the experience with family and laughter. As soon as we arrived we were seated immediately, we even got the table we requested and we were met with smiles and a great welcome from our waitress. The waitress explain how everything work since we had a guest who was experiencing this for the first time. What really impressed me was our waitress brought me a candle and matches so we could sing Happy Birthday to our mother. This is a great place and they realize how special this place is in the hearts of the guests. I am so happy and pleased with Cygnus 27."

Sunday brunch at Cygnus 27 is one

The food, the service, the

I love the view of downtown from our table but I wish the portion of food was larger for the price they were."
