The food was absolutely phenomenal! I enjoyed the sushi as well as the New York Strip (the best I have ever eaten). The service was top class from beginning to end as well. It was just 3 days ago that I enjoyed my lovely dinner and I am already returning in another 2 days. :)

Favorite for an Anniversary Dinner
This is our third time at SIX.ONE.SIX and we will continue to go. Not only do they make it a point to use a lot of Michigan products in their menu, their food is always outstanding and the service is top notch.

My friends and I stayed at
My friends and I stayed at the JW on April 20 and had pre-dinner drinks at Mixology. Our server Kali (I think - I know it starts with a K) was absolutely wonderful! she was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful. She was also able to anticipate our needs even before we realized that we needed something!We are definetly coming back for another JW experience soon!

My husband went to six one six for our anniversary dinner this weekend and were extremely impressed. Our service was perfect and our server was great and attentive. The wine list had some local wines from Michigan which i really appreciate. Our waiter suggested some great food from the menu. We were extremely impressed and can't wait to tell our friends to check out one of our new favorites.

Great for a special occasion
The variety (and quality) of the brunch items was outstanding! Loved the stuffed duck. Restaurant is a bit pricey ($7 for a mimosa), but the service is great. I would recommend for a special occasion -- we visited for Mother's Day, since my parents were in town. Everyone loved the food.

Great Food and Service
Food was excellent and portion sizes where perfect! The farm to table partnership insured that the food was fresh and the results outstanding. Great flavors in all the dishes from appetizers to dessert. Great dining experience.

Graduate's Lunch was Special
We made a reservation to have a special lunch with our graduate and 616 was the perfect place. The food was spectacular along with the service. The congratulatory desert was an extremely nice and delightful surprise !
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
What an experience!
I have never felt more full! Service was outstanding from the moment we walked in the door! Celebrating a special occasion and the staff really went above and beyond to make it special. Food is to die for! I cannot wait to come back!!

6-1-6 is a winner
We celebrated our 41st Anniversary with a Spa Package at this JW Marriott including dinner at 6-1-6. Very good spot. We has the halibut and the rack of lamb for entres. Salmon chowder and kale salad to begin. All were terrific. Had a Kamen 2008 Cabernet from their pretty good wine list. My only suggestion would be to add white table cloths after 6 pm. It would add a lot of class to the dining experience.

A very pleasant experience
A very pleasant experience in every way. The facility is grand, but still comfortable. The service, beginning at the front door, is very pleasant and extremely competent. Our wait staff was very attentive, and unusually helpful.
The menu is creative and very innovative. Soup, salad, entree and dessert were all excellent, and beautifully served. I miss some of the entries from the previous seasonal menu, but I will wait for them to return in the fall. Of particular note is the mint/chocolate ice cream. Absolutely wonderful. I couldn't make it better myself.
Dining with you is a regular and genuine pleasure. I recommend 616 without hesitation. A wonderful addition to the Grand Rapids dining experience. Thanks for all the hard work.

Overall dinner was good. Tried Chefs soup which was a Parmesan. That was actually placed together well and was seasoned great. When the entrees came out my wife had the salmon and I tried the veal chop. The salmon was plated nicely but could of used a little more color to it. The greens on the plate were quite dull. The salmon itself was great for the price. The veal chop was a great dish as well. The plating was great but I was disappointed to find an overwhelming amount of fat on the veal chop, more than usual. I struggled to find the meat which was a total disappointment for the price as the other items on the plate didnt make up the value. Overall great restaurant for dinner but it isn't outstanding by any means, food wise.

Fabulously Fun 40th Birthday
I reserved our table last minute for my sister's 40th birthday celebration and was so excited that the staff was so accommodating! Our waiter, Justin, was amazing! He had the perfect mix of humor & wit paired with a wonderful knowledge of the menu & superb waiting skills. I give him an A+ for sure! All 7 of us were very pleased with the level of service as well as the quality of the food! Before our meal, the chef sent out a fabulous appetizer because it was a special occasion for us. This was quite unexpected and perfectly wonderful! Later, after my sister had the steak, she quickly proclaimed it to be the best steak she has ever had! Then they brought out a surprise dessert that was simply perfection! I Highly recommend!!
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The live music from the hotel lounge was pleasant during our 3 course meal that included a salmon chowder, pork cheeks, and one lamb and one steak. Definetly recommend the steak. The service was excellent as well.

6 to one and back to 6
The food at this restaurant was very tasteful. while some food is amazing for the good old pallet. other foods are of a distinct taste that you should be used to before you try them, but overall the experience is what really mattered. i went to the restaurant with my girlfriend for our anniversary. it is great to reserve a table ahead of time. i believe it makes the experience that much better. the waiters are very friendly, and i could not ask for more of a special moment. i would recommend to everyone for lunch, and dinner.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the 616 chowder which was an excellent starter along with the New York Strip with fingerlings and asparagus. This restaurant got me to do something my mother tried to get me to do for 21 years and that is eat my vegetables. Never could stand asparagus until I tasted 616's. My mother would be so proud. I also had the souffle for dessert and it was worth the 15 minute wait. Simply delicious. I am well travelled and 616's food and service is second to none. I also was able to try the rabbit which was excellent as well.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to Six-One-Six for my Dinner Club. We thoroughly enjoy our meals and the ambiance at the restaurant. It won't be our last visit.

Excellent vegetarian option
We checked online in advance to make sure we had a vegetarian option. The English pea gnocchi were delectable (the ramps were replaced with morels!), the baby beets and arugula salad was very good, and the bread pudding with cherry sauce was perfection -- respecting the simplicity of bread pudding at the same time enhancing it with a liqueur and light cherry sauce. The bread was excellent. (The amuse bouche was a sashimi with the hottest sauce I've ever encountered -- my husband-with-a-bad-reaction-to-heat, having been warned, had to scrape off the sauce.)
He had the grilled chicken (sans salsa) with kale and fingerling potatoes and found it excellent as well.
Free parking also in the fancy hotel parking garage!

Scenic Views, Excellent Food
We tried the 616 for restaurant week and had excellent courses. Loved the chicken, corn chowder, and chocolate stout cake dessert. Everything was presented nicely and we enjoyed the view on the deck. The service was fairly attentive. Watched the sunset as dinner was ending! We had a great time and would come back.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
...and it doesn't even need the qualifier, "...for a hotel restaurant," because this place cd stand up to the best of 'em--ANYWHERE. (i say this with the perspective of a new yorker who eats out often.) we were more than surprised by the creative menu, quality of the food and service, and the pleasant ambiance of the room, where the tables are generously spaced, and the noise level blessedly low. cannot recommend this highly enough for anyone seeking a better-than-good--even great--meal in grand rapids.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Happily Surprised
Dined at 616 Thursday evening. Previously at 616 only for cocktails. However, wanted to try dinner during Restaurant Week. What fun. Wait staff was exceptional and versed in food and drink menu. Cocktail was excellent. Rabbit hors d'oeuvre was unexpected. First time for rabbit, very good! Soup, entree, and dessert presentation were attractive in unique tableware. Food was a delightful experience for the taste buds. Will definitely return!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food not so much
We went there for the last day of restaurant week, I ordered the corn soup for the first course, double bone in pork chop for the second course, and the chocolate stout cake for the third. The corn soup other than being a little spicy you couldn't even tell there was corn in it, a off-colored brownish soup with pickled Shiitake mushrooms and they overtook the whole dish. The second course I got the double bone in pork chop, It was very dry and not much flavor, potatoes that came with that were sweet potatoes they were good with the sauce underneath and some kale That was nothing special just plain kale. The third course saved the whole meal, Chocolate stout cake with caramel, pretzel crumble and chocolate mousse that was delicious.

Good choice for Sunday brunch
The quality and food selection make this a great venue for Sunday Brunch.

35th Wedding Anniversary Dinner
Dinner at six.one.six never disappoints.
First course: Chefs Lovely Soup, kale salad and mussels with naan. All were delicious. We were skeptical about having the mussels in Michigan. Our daughter lives in Maine, and we are spoiled each time we visit, as the seafood there is fabulous. I highly recommend the mussels at six.one.six. We will order them again.
Our main entrees were the Hawaiian Wahoo; a steak like fish that was delicious. It was topped with heirloom tomatoes, had bits of pineapple, and sat on a bed of couscous with a sauce that was YUM. John had the grilled pork loin with grilled peaches and potatoes. Both were perfectly executed and beautifully presented.
Dessert was creme brulee and phyllo peach compote. Exquisite.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Improved from last visit
Had been avoiding the restaurant from past dining experiences. Decided to try again for pre-symphony dining. What a surprise! Food was wonderful. Presentation, quality, taste , composition. So happy !
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rocky start, but excellent overall
While our dinner and service were wonderful, our visit to Six One Six was marred by the Hostess trying to seat us in the back of the restaurant with a view of the kitchen, when our reservation had specifically mentioned we preferred a window seat. The table she took us to had small children seated nearby [and this is not a restaurant to bring children to], and we let her know it was not acceptable. She then seated us in an available window seat, which a moment earlier she had said was not available. It was a poor start to what otherwise would have been a perfect evening.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good good on Grand Rapids
The steak was recommended by a coworker and we were not disappointed. Our waiter was just the tight amount of attentive. Bob I think it was. Excellent creme bruelle. :)
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved our server! Food was awesome! My drink was a bit sweet but overall a really pleasant experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious Food, But Too Loud
The restaurant did a nice job with the requested vegan meal and the chicken with rice soup was excellent, as were the kale salads (regular and vegan versions). The service was cheerful and prompt. Unfortunately, the restaurant was hosting a large group of 20+ young women who decided to conduct themselves as if at a cocktail party, standing around the table for a good while prior to dinner. They were too loud for the space, which was only cordoned off by a mesh screen, and seating at our table was right up against the screen. I understand it's difficult to refuse business on this scale, but the space is just too small to accommodate such a group without compromising the experience of the remainder of the customers.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for drinks!
My friends and I went to Six One Six for drinks later on a Friday night. We had a great time sitting inside and also sitting outside in the tents with our own personal fire. The atmosphere was fun and the service was great. I will definitely come back again!

Perfect Lunch Cabana
616 offers some of the nicest outdoor dining in Grand Rapids. You have a lovely view of the Grand River and the Grand Rapids Museum. The covered seating cabana's are a nice, private way to enjoy the company of friends without feeling crammed on a patio. The service was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive and the food, while a limited menu from 2:00-5:00 was excellently prepared and enjoyed by all. Of exceptional note are the truffle fries and the burger. It was a perfect afternoon spot to catch up with friends.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating our first
We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and had a great time. We loved the truffle fries!!

Was there for sweeties day and birthday combine we were allowed to decorate for the occasion very romantic and the guys loved it there was a Jazz Band could have been a little more enthuse but there wasn't enough people to create the vibe, all the same enjoyed them.

Wonderful Night Out
We celebrated our 7yr Anniversary at Six One Six in the JW Marriott. It was a Sunday night so it was not as packed as on a Friday or Saturday night, which was nice. Our server was exceptional and very attentive. We enjoyed the Truffle Fries, they were far from your ordinary french fry. They were delicious! We had the Filet and the NY Strip for entrees, both were cooked to perfection. The sauce on the Filet was exceptional! The chef was gracious enough to substitute different accompaniments to the entrees as we requested. For dessert we had their latest chocolate mousse creation which was like a decadent "adult" smore. It was so good we had to take a picture of it to remember it by. We can not wait to go back!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had great service and wonderful food. The little extra bites durning our dinner made this a great experience. We love that they use local products.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yummy and Pricey!
This was my second time dining at Six.One.Six. I think I enjoyed the first time more since I wasn't the one paying for it...The food was wonderful and it was a peaceful relaxing place to take my family...My only complaint: Very pricey considering the small amount of food served...We had 5 people, bill was $250.00 without appetizers or dessert. But I still love the place and would go again when I am feeling rich!!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Six One Six does it right!
We have eaten at the restaurant several times now for their Sunday brunch. The brunch line moves along quite quickly with custom omelets made by Elvis and waffles. Many delicious options for the easy pick up buffet choices. A couple of our group ordered awesome tasting pancakes which, of course, come a bit later than going for the buffet.
The visit had a very good playing guitar player. He was right behind us, but the music was not too loud to overshadow our conversations. Our table was ready for the 9 of us when we arrived.
They have a lovely, fun bar there and cocktail area, which serves a very pleasant menu of food, too, for your afternoon and evening pleasures.

The best of GR
On the banks of the Grand River surrounded by stunning decor and attentive staff, this restaurant takes pride in local farms' offerings, relaxed ambiance, and exquisite flavor combinations. A favorite for brunch, small plates, and seasonal cocktails on the river patio.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious Thanksgiving Brunch!
With a view to the grand river, we dined on a sumptuous Thanksgiving brunch. The delectable array appealed to both the carnivores and vegetarians in my family. Expertly prepared, locally-harvested food, gracious service, and complimentary parking were some of the highlights of our meal.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed a great meal with wonderful friends. The service was awesome and the buffet was nicely appointed. The buffet was kept filled and fresh. Never did we find an empty warmer. Being a vegetarian my buffet favorites were the kale salad and the cauliflower soup. And, the desserts were divine. And the icing on the cake was the validated parking.
