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.
It was great! We were celebrating an anniversary and I wanted to take my husband to somewhere special he had never been.
Excellent service. Very personable.
Fireworks were great! Only suggestion for future would be to raise the blinds all the way to the top to be able to see the higher fireworks. Great experience overall!
Love the place
4th of July. A fabulous event!!!
I had an excellent guest experience. My server was Abby and she was a very pleasant and friendly person. She was prompt and courteous. I had the five course meal for the Fireworks Celebration.
Love it here for birthdays, special occasions or for drinks/dessert (you HAVE to order the chocolate sphere!). Service is wonderful (professional, but friendly staff), food was awesome and the sunset view even better. Thank you Cygnus!
Amazing food and view!
Our server Carmen was outstanding. We can always count on her for knowing great wine pairings with the food and trust her menu recommendations. She is a main reason we love to return to Cygnus. And the great view.
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!!
Very happy with my experience at Cygnus 27. I was with a group for a bachelor party and this high end restaurant was a great start to the night. The food was excellent and the staff was phenomenal. Highly recommend Cygnus 27 for nearly any special occasion.
It was amazing. Great view, great staff, delicious food/drinks, and great overall atmosphere.
Staff was amazing and very knowledgeable! View is remarkable!! Wonderful experience!!
We had my mom's birthday there recently and she absolutely enjoyed the whole experience! The service we got from Mitch was outstanding. Overall, a very good experience!
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.
The fish was overcooked and dry and the scallops were under cooked. Drinks and service were excellent.
My wife and I enjoyed our 50th anniversary dinner at Cygnus. It was a quiet evening for just the two of us and the service, and food were exceptional.
Very good food and great service. Really nice on the inside, music and lighting we’re good. I especially enjoyed the salad and the rolls that were brought out. Celebrated my Anniversary with my wife and it was a memorable moment. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate an engagement, anniversary or birthday. Had a really good experience.
My daughter took 5 close friends for her 17th birthday celebration and they were so happy. The service was special and treated all the girls well. The food I am told was amazing. What a great way to turn 17!
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.
The tapas menu was sensational as well as the wine list. Dessert was equally fabulous. Great dining experience. Brandon our server was very knowledgeable in helping us select our wine and tapas plates.
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.
Outstanding Service - Carmen was very helpful and insightful of the choices and how to make the dinner most enjoyable. The view was great and food was outstanding. Would recommended this restaurant for a great date night for anyone.
Overall, a great experience starting with a notable Happy Hour.
Our dinner was very good except for the mussels were not cooked correctly in my Seafood dish.
The view there is outstanding !!!
Outstanding dining experience. The menu was robust. The chef did a great job matching flavors.
This place has a great view, excellent food and fine service. The lounge/bar area is a great place to sit an enjoy the sunset or just admire the view. Great romantic place for date night. Only drawback is its a little pricey. But again, its an amazing experience.
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!
Came here for our anniversary. It was great! My wife didn't love the first dish she had so they brought her something else. The food was great, the service was even better. Looking forward to going there again.
Another great evening at Cygnus27! Gorgeous sunset views. Our server, "Brandon", was on top of his game with his suggested menu items, service, and presentation. Great filets! Clean plates all around.
It was a nice place to have a graduation dinner. The views out over Grand Rapids were very nice. The food was very good and our service was as well. We tried some new things and most everything was a hit. We weren't too fond of the oysters or the garlic soup, but everything else was very good.
An amazing experience for our six year anniversary. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. The food was amazing and creative.
The food was to die for and the service was amazing. Our waiter was helpful, kind, informative and patient. I will definitely be returning!
Excellent service, food, and view. Danny outstanding server. Always fun.
great food, great service & fabulous view. good place to go for a special occasion!
As always, Cygnus 27 does not disappoint. I had the summer sangria, which was amazing along with some awesome vegan options. Highly recommend.
Abagail did a wonderful job of helping our family celebrate. The service was timed perfectly and she went above and beyond to make everything exceptional. 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.
