Brunch at Cygnus 27 is amazing. The views are spectacular and the food is even better. Brunch includes a complimentary brunch beverage (Bloody Mary, mimosa, etc.) and a selection of breakfast items, pastries, desserts, a sushi station, omelet station, and crepe station. Another favorite feature is the rodizio cart, which includes grilled NY strip, beef tenderloin, chicken thigh, house made chorizo and diver scallops! Definitely a wonderful place for a special occasion or celebration.

Had a 7 pm dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The greeter took our coats and had a table ready for us. We passed through the bar / lounge area which was quite full and loud. The views are very nice from the 27th floor.
Once we got our server, the night was great. We were well attended but not overly pushed through dinner. The calamari appetizer is super good, almost ordered a second one. The salads were fresh and tasty.
We had the paella and the scallops as main dishes and both were deelish. These were the biggest scallops I’ve ever seen!
Overall, I think this is a great place for Grand Rapids and we will return for sure.
The man who appeared to be the manager was very nice also and made us feel at home.
Cygnus is a great location--nothing like it in Grand Rapids. The paella was very good. Service (Danny) was very good. Spiced apple dessert fantastic. Wine list reasonable and approachable.
That said, two critical observations. The bar scene sound washed over the dining area, making a romantic dinner into a little like camping too close to drunk neighbors in a state park. Some hanging sound baffles or something from the ceiling could only help. But for a restaurant that has prided itself for years as THE place for a significant dining event, this is unacceptable.
Also, and this is a criticism of the OpenTable reservation system and their use of it. I made my reservation 3 days prior to our Friday nite dinner. OpenTable only offered me 515, 530, or 830 and later. I called Cygnus reservation directly and got a recording directing me to OpenTable. Yet dining thru the 630-730-800pm prime time, at least half the tables were empty THE ENTIRE TIME! What gives, Cygnus? What gives, OpenTable? Is there a secret, alternate way to get seated that I was unaware of.
Perfect place to take my girl for a Valentine’s date!
We had an incredible
Great food and outstanding service!!
Will definately be returning to this establishment!
Excellent food, amazing variety, service was fantastic. It certainly isn’t cheap, but is a pretty good value.
Best brunch that I’ve had in Grand Rapids. Expansive options, great views, wonderful service, excellent food quality and presentation.
I always get amazing service but Carmen was exceptional. This would have been the second time I had her as a server. She really treated me and my little boy quite well!
My daughter took her date here before the schools Sadie Hawkins dance, she said her server was great, they were treated well and the food was awesome!
Fantastic!! Exceeded our expectations
Four of us enjoyed the classy yet cozy ambiance at Cygnus for a girls night out. The view of GR at night is always gorgeous, our waitress was all-around perfection, and the desserts (we tried every one on the menu) were phenomenal.
The service and food were overall exquisite! The servers were very accommodating and friendly.
We love coming to Cygnus. As a celiac, it's great to have lots of wonderful options on the menu. My favorite is usually the fried calamari, which they make gluten free.
Great view of the city, great atmosphere great pricing food was great
Our server Carmen really made the night. She enhanced the delicious food choices with excellent wine suggestions to pair it with. The chef is also to be commented. The soup, salad, and entrees of filet and pork chop were outstanding. Loved it!
Food was delicious, service was great, terrific drinks...will definitely go back!
Always a great meal in a lovely atmosphere. The menu is sophisticated and the service is always great.
My family had another amazing experience at Cygnus' Sunday Brunch! We LOVED Carmen our server! She added to the ambiance and made the entire meal wonderful!
Cygnus27 continues to deliver a fresh take on Sunday brunch. Highly recommend.
We had a great time at Cygnus 27. Went for my wife's birthday and our server Anna made sure we were taken care of and had a great time. Food was excellent and of course you have a great view of the city.
Outstanding as usual. Carmen is the best server in the world!
Perfect location for a celebration. Amazing views and food! Service was great too!
This was our first time to Cygnus. I have severe food allergies and the knowledge of the staff was wonderful. Our server (I think her name was Anna??) She was excellent! Every one was so friendly and professional. I was able to dine with peace if mind that the kitchen staff understood my restrictions and took every precaution they could. I had no problems at all! Thank you!
We have eaten at Cygnus several times since the current South American influenced menu came in, and everything we've ordered has been good or excellent. The menu is creative, and has a lot of interesting tapas selections which make it easy to put together a small or full meal with plenty of variety. Seafood dishes, which can easily be overcooked, are consistently well prepared. The service is excellent, as is the view. The only issue we have is the absence of draft beer. In Beer City USA, with all of its wonderful craft beers, they can do better. The wine lists is not enormous, but the selections are well chosen. Serious food people will like Cygnus, as will people who just want a good meal. The prices are consistent with other upscale restaurants in the area, and actually better than those at Ruth's Chris Steak House downstairs.
Our first time at Cygnus. Food was great and Anna M. did an amazing job explaining the menu and making recommendations.
I've been many times for drinks with friends and family. The view is like no other. This was my first dining experience here. While the menu looks unique and exciting, the output wasn't the best fit for us. I will try this again but, I suggest other proceed carefully.
great views. great food. great service. love. love. love everything about Sunday brunch @ Cygnus 27.
Calimari was alright not enough depth in flavors. Scallops were amazing. Lamb good not great, veg was almost raw, dessert was fun. Service was on top of it good overall experience kitchen a little shaky
