It was my boyfriend’s birthday and Carmen did an exceptional job as our server. She was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure we were having a good time.
Food and service was great. Tapas options were tasty!
Great food and great service. My daughter's choice for her birthday - they did not disappoint our expectations.
Service is always the best!
The night started great, it was dusk. The food was good and the service outstanding however, the ambiance is WAY TOO BRIGHT which caused the place to sound and feel like a cafeteria as it got full. Certainly by just turning down the lighting to 1/2 of what it is, I believe the noise level would lower and the ambience would allow you to see the lights in the city much better.
Our sons sixteenth birthday. Fantastic service and they really made him feel special. The food was delicious with ample portions as always. Thanks again.
Mitch provided wonderful service that we completely enjoyed. Would highly recommend going here
Absolutely one of the best dining experiences in Grand Rapids.
Food & service excellent! Will definitely return.
Went with friends for New Year's eve. Food was excellent overall; the chef is truly excellent. I would not call this place vegetarian friendly. The server had extraordinarily deep knowledge of the wine list and advised us effectively but without pretension. From 27th floor there are of course great views of the city. But the decor, in my opinion, is really bad, especially for such an expensive place. We mentioned this to the server and she said "we are aware." She informed me that for that exact reason, Cygnus will close in March 2019 for a whole year of total renovation work.
Very loud. Food decent but overpriced
Great place and wonderful dinner. We had NY dinner , which was a choice between 3 options in each course. No all options were equal in " value". So some of us made better choices than others.. . However, the main course was great in all options. the chef did an excellent job .. The room was full , but that did not stop the kitchen to deliver FAST and hot, well done plates. Good job overall
Mitch was our waiter, Perfect example of wait staff. Very nice, professional, and outgoing. He made our experience top notch.
Way overpriced, especially for Grand Rapids. I’ve been to restaurants for half this price and 10 times better. Dinner for four was same price as two nights at Amway grand plaza hotel.
Ceviche was very small diver scallops with nothing else, i.e. no peppers, onions, etc., that are normally in authentic ceviche.
Service was good and so was dessert.
Great Sunday brunch buffet!
Great food and great service! Went here for an engagement celebration and was absolutely amazing! Would 100% recommend
It was a bit noisy at first because we were seated not far from the bar during happy hour but it quieted down fairly quickly after it finished. Our server was amazing and gave excellent recommendations. ALL of the food was absolutely delicious and I couldn't help but say it repeatedly to our server.
The view is breathtaking and I loved watching the glittering of lights in the distance as cars drove along the freeways and city streets.
It's perfect for the true food lover, celebrating special moments, or just trying something new and exciting.
You won't be disappointed.
Absolutely wonderful! We had the calamari and meatballs for appetizers. My husband had the rack of lamb, and I had the pork chop. For dessert, we had a deconstructed lemon meringue with gold flake on top. All of the food was absolutely delicious. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive and had a great personality. We come to Grand Rapids at least 1-2 times a year, and we will definitely be back to Cygnus 27!
We had a lovely time right after the ballet. The service was excellent, as usual. The food was amazing!
I dined with my family the Saturday before Christmas. We had a lovely meal and great service. The menu has a little bit for most tastes-seafood, chicken, beef, uncommon food (octopus)-all delicious and served in reasonable portions. The cocktails were a nice mix of traditional (e.g., Negroni) and new (strawberry mule). The tapas dishes are great for sharing - the meatballs are not your mother's meatballs and the manchego fritters were delicious. The yellowtail ceviche was sweet and rich and delicious. The cauliflower salad had great texture and flavor. The main dishes were gorgeous and equally delicious. The desserts were amazing. While the chocolate sphere is tasty and its presentation is a remarkable show, the lemon tart will have you dreaming!
Food was excellent. Our server - Mitchell D. - made it even more enjoyable with his description of the dishes and the presentation of dessert. Fantastic waiter!
Great food, wonderful view and outstanding service by our waitress.
Our combined birthday dinner this year was at Cygnus, my wife and I have birthdays near Christmas so we like to do this. We spent the night in the hotel and had a great dinner. Very attentive waiter allowed us time to just talk over drinks, then a nice fresh salad followed by the scallops. My compliments to Cygnus for realizing that three scallops apiece is plenty! And boy were they good, we savored every bite! Thanks for a great evening.
Great place to meet with friends during the Holidays. Beautiful view, Great food and excellent staff provide for a wonderful evening. Will be back.
Our server Alex was wonderful. He explained dishes and ingredients to us.
He was considerate about my food allergy and double checked that it would be okay to consume.
The skyline view was beautiful.
Atmosphere was elegant and comfortable.
Will be visiting this restaurant many more times in the future.
Overall very disappointing. It was extremely noisy and food was fair at best. Grand Rapids has a growing and more energetic downtown than in years past. Don't waste your time or money here, there are many better choices.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary there. It must be popular for such occasions as the server told us four (4) other couples were celebrating their wedding anniversaries also. Excellent service, food and ambience. Cost was what I expected. A great celebration at a fair price. Highly recommend.
Great dinner for me and my Girlfriend. Waiter was fantastic with recommendations. We worried about small portion sizes but with the steak and simply having desert and rolls we were left completely full. Great view window side, will be returning for another special occasion at some point.
A little over priced great quality but even then i’d say they need to shave about $5 off
the average meal. Again great food but
not quite to the price level they are at.
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.
We had a great brunch experience. LOVE the sushi. It is by far our favorite thing!
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 and staff were incredible!!! The general manager went above and beyond the call of duty for my wife and I. I can’t wait for a return visit.
Outstanding venue with exceptional food and service.
Great food great service however noice level was not good we struggled hearing ourselves at our table also empty tables with city view went unused we were sitted I’m the middle kind of a shame for a reservation made weeks in advance
We dined here for a birthday and it was somewhat disappointing. Poor ambiance and limited menu choices, value for dollar was poor. Service was very good, and the view spectacular. Will not return.
This experience was great! I have a tradition of eating at the Cygnus for my birthday and just recently we started going for brunch. It's a great variety. I am looking forward to coming again next year. I hope that there is something new next year.
Server Carmen was GREAT! - attentive and caring, listening, accommodating, classy, and all-around wonderful.
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.
Our server was great, she was very polite, new the menu and suggested things that we loved. Me and my fiancé had a great evening and it was thanks to the server.
