First time there for a special Christmas celebration. Service was great and most of the food was excellent. Eggs Benedict was a little under cooked, but realize that may be because they sit. I couldn't really eat it. But the rest of the buffet was wonderful. It was louder than I thought it would be, but we were given a window seat and had a wonderful view. In all, it was a great visit.

My boyfriend and I went to Cygnus27 for brunch. The restaurant is gorgeous and all of the staff is super friendly and efficient! All of the presentations were spectacular and everything I tried was delicious!
My only thoughts on shortcomings were that my complimentary drink wasn’t what I hoped it would be....but it was a solid breakfast cocktail nonetheless. And the rodizio cart left a smidge to be desired. I got a piece of the seasoned tenderloin and it was so rare I couldn’t eat it. Very cool concept though.

Overall a delightful experience!! The views are great and it was well worth the visit for brunch!

The food at Cygnus 27 is always delicious, with perfect portions. The service cannot be beat. Our server was Mitch, and we found him to be very attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. We very much enjoyed our appetizer of Manchego Fritters. My boyfriend had the Sobie Pork Chop, which he said was excellent - not fancy, just a nice cut of pork cooked and seasoned perfectly. I had the Amish Chicken, which was fabulous. I did miss the macaron that used to be offered at the end of the meal (I haven't dined here in years... you probably phased those out long ago!), but the lime cookie was delectable! We had a wonderful time, and I cannot wait to return - it's always such a special treat.

My colleagues and I dined there as part of a celebration. The decor is modern and a little cold. The views from the 27th floor are spectacular, though. The spacing between tables was comfortable and I did not hear conversations from other tables. Our server was amazing. She knew the nuances of each dish and their wines, was able to assess the tastes of the diners and made great recommendations. The menu, especially the tapas, was exciting with a heavy focus on seafood and Spanish/Mediterranean-inspired dishes. The wine list, while only a few pages, has a wide variety that includes regional wines and enough variety (e.g., vigonier, albarino, temparanillo) that you don't find on many wine lists. The meal execution was fantastic. The food was gorgeous, prepared well and delicious. The service was efficient yet relaxed. We were never rushed. We ended with shared desserts-the lemon tart of the chocolate sphere. Very memorable ending to a lovely evening.

In every way DELIGHTFUL brunch! Huge selection of all kinds of things-many fruits, meats, cheeses, omelets, crepes, pastries extraordinaire, even great sushi rolls! All topped off by the fanciest mini desserts possible- oh! the Baileys Irish cream silver bon bons, mini raspberry parfaits, tiny delicious berry topped creme brulee, and cake pops to name a FEW!

First let me say that the service at this restaurant is wonderful. The food however is mediocre. I feel that they didn't have a full kitchen and that the was food that was pre-made and heated in the back, nothing fresh. Even the steak I had wasn't fresh off the grill and was covered sauce. If you are looking for a nice view and a drink, it's the spot. If you are looking for fantastic food, find somewhere else to eat.

We enjoyed all the different food stations-wonderful staff and great food. Biggest hit was the crepe station. Our son loved the sushi bar. The table service was outstanding - really outstanding. Grandson discovered he loved scallops (at age 11) and we were able to get just-one-more-please. Our family outing was a hit. Thankyou.

We dined here prior to a symphony concert, and had a terrific experience. Our server, Brandon, was top notch, and made great recommendations. We had three courses and he got us out in perfect time to walk to the concert hall. We started with some tapas--cheese fritters, salmon ceviche, and the Iberian ham. All of us had fish or seafood for an entree. The baked whole trout was cooked perfectly, wrapped in thin serrano ham and completely deboned, but whole. The arctic char came with some lentils, which is always a nice combination. Wine selection offers many selections by the glass or bottle. We look forward to going back!
