Outstanding in every way. Excellent service, interesting menu. We had the calamari, a salad, and a bone-in pork chop that was melt in your mouth delicious. We go every time we are in Grand Rapids for business and are never disappointed. Mitch the bartender even remembers my husband’s special drink recipe.

The only complaint was the portion size of the asparagus tortellini was disappointing. It was extremely small and not with the 26.00. Everything else was fantastic. Our server Carmen made the night for us. She was friendly, personable and knowledgeable about the menu.

I expected a superb view - and we got it. I wasn’t expecting the food to necessarily match the view - it did!!! We ordered several tapas to make a dinner and the flavors were great. The calamari treatment was wonderful.
Our server and all the staff were very pleasant, attentive and projected the feeling that they truly wanted us to have a very enjoyable experience. And it was!!

This was our second visit to this highly exalted restaurant. THe first time we had a table of very noisy people dining close to us. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with all the cackling going on. The noise was awful. Once again, last night, there was a table of six revelers who yelled and screamed at each other. We were appalled. One of us would start to say something only to be distracted by a bellowing from the table of six.Our server, Brandon, was the best. We mentioned the situation to him and he tried to calm the waters by acting “under the radar,” and the noise subsided a bit. The service at Cygnus 27 is superb. The greeters couldn’t have been more pleasant and our preprandial cocktail at the bar was served up by a delightful bartender. And Parker, the manager, was wonderful, stopping by our table to chat. He was delightful. Now about the food! It was lovely, tasty, just not much of it! I have never been fond of tiny portions of food with little dibs and dabs of this and that. The flatbread had very few vegetables and was quite dry. Our salad was ok, just quite small. And then my scallops. They were very good but with only three scallops and bits of rice, I left hungry. This restaurant would be considered a culinary delight for many people, but I was disappointed in the quantity of the food. Oh yes, I hated the calamari and I usually love calamari. It was gray looking with a coating of something. It was a bit tough and I didn’t like the taste. Even the aioli didn’t help. Unfortunately, we will not be back to Cygnus 27.

Food and service were good. The valet lost my car keys. A valet at the end of his shift had accidentally taken them home. The valet manager was rude and kept demanding that I check my pockets because he suspected that I had the key. I did not, to say the least. Extremely irritating. After an hour, when the keys were finally located, I received no apology. General incompetence. Won’t return.

Cygnus is overpriced for what you get . Three meatballs, that were dry, for $15, is ridiculous. There are much better restaurants, if you want to spend almost $200, at the Amway. Those prices for tapas are out of line. My daughter got the empanadas and they were well over-cooked.

Our server was great.

Twe would return only for drinks and the view

We enjoyed a number of small plates and shared a salad and entree. The calamari was excellent with a fresh and different blue corn breading that was very flavorful. The salad was fresh and crisp. The roasted char was very well prepared and tasty. The service was fantastic with a friendly and efficient waiter tending our every need.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Cygnus 27. From the moment we walked in they made us feel welcome and special, wishing us a happy anniversary, seating us at a wonderful window seat looking north down the Grand River, and then giving us a complimentary champagne toast! Our server, Abigail, new the menu inside and out and made excellent suggestions. A professional server. The whole staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was romantic and fun. The final touch was a nice "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the edge of our dessert plate. Had an outstanding time!

The food was delicious in both taste and appearance. The ambiance was lively but not so much we couldn’t have a nice conversation. Thank you so much. Through all the times I have been to Cygnus, this was the best.
