Reserve Grand Rapids
Departmental Off-SiteThere were four of us on an off-site work outing. We chose The Reserve for lunch because of its proximity to the Grand Rapids Museum. The menu was fun, we all found something to suite our tastes, and there were no complaints (not an easy thing to accomplish with this small group!). The pork fat fries were awesome!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful andThe food was wonderful and the service is relaxed in a unpretentious way. The only downside is that the tables are kind of close together.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the Reserve! I haveWe love the Reserve! I have some dietary restrictions and they are always willing to accommodate. Mark has been our server the last 2 times we have visited and he is excellent. He remembered us from the last visit and was so patient and helpful with my menu. The food, as always was great. It was our anniversary this time and I should have requested different seating - the side by side - community seating not intimate for an anniversary dinner. Great food Excellent Service make for a great night!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust to sit and view the beautifulJust to sit and view the beautiful Art Prize winner, "Open Water," made the evening.

Thanks Renee for such a nice evening at your facility!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodies unite! Truly outstanding!Fabulous - an uptown gem in GR! This ain't Applebees, folks. So many outstanding choices for food and drink. Unusual charcuterie and cheese menu. A whole host of wonderful locally-grown options too. Could eat and drink your way through a whole afternoon or evening. Always feel well-cared for by the very knowledgeable foodie waitstaff. Atmosphere is really exceptional. Beautiful space. Soaring ceilings, great modern decor...and an ArtPrize winner over the bar. If you haven't been, you must go. Don't let this one slip away for lack of attention.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife there for herI took my wife there for her birthday and we were both extremely impressed with Reserve and it's staff.
