Cygnus 27 Ratings and Reviews
Cygnus 27 is an outstanding dining experience. We always enjoy it. It makes any evening special. The service, the food, the view all spell first class. All aspects are excellent but we especially appreciate the great service that starts the minute you walk in. Our server was Carmen and she was excellent. Attentive, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Will return often.
Enjoyed a wonderful evening at Cygnus with my wife after a work Christmas party (before heading home to our 3 boys). It is one of our favourite places downtown. The food was stellar - just had a few appetizers the yellowtail ceviche and Spanish octopus! dessert was amazing as well, the Tarta De Limon. Also enjoyed one of the best Old Fashioneds I have ever had. The service by Carmen was top notch. We will be back soon.
1st course cerviche was excellent. Mains were OK. Fairly good selection of wines, although some were a bit overpriced, even for eating out. Noise level tended toward high, but we've been to some that were higher and now avoid those.
A pleasant night out and look forward to their remodel that may quiet the place down a bit.
We had a friendly, well informed waitress. Food presentation was wonderful. We were celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary and we were given a nice table by the window with beautiful views. The one thing we would suggest is more times between appetizers; salad/soup, entree and after dinner dessert, cocktails, coffee. While we weren’t rushed to leave our table it felt just a bit rushed in between courses. Nothing serious as we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our night.
Everything about Cygnus 27 was Amazing! The calamari was fantastic. The dinner portions were perfect to feel satisfied but not stuffed. Our party of six had a quiet nook where we enjoyed superb service and a beautiful view. The vast number of gluten free items on the menu not only made dining that much better, but shows that fresh ingredients without fillers are used to create their dishes. We will definitely return and recommend Cygnus to others!
Most of the food was good, except for the pasta which was completely congealed and tasteless. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. Ambiance was lacking due to a silent background. Also to a heater issue they had which resulted in blowing cold air on us for the entire evening (on a frigid November night).
Considering the cost and the issues, it didn't seem worth it overall. We will definitely think twice about returning.
Excellent food, all courses! Ceviche was amazing and the oysters were awesome! Homemade cocktail sauce had an awesome Smokey flavor. Spinach and bacon salad was to die for! And our main course was the scallops and the trout ..... whew .... a meal that you only get once in awhile! We had a waitress that loved her job and was awesome at it!
Server was good when he made it to our table but seemed to have too many tables to be completely attentive. Food was great! Only real complaint would be that I was remind 6 separate times that are reservation was made for 15 mins before they closed and we needed to put our entree order in as soon as possible. I even heard the host saying very happily that we were the last table for the night to another employee on the way to our table.
The best Sunday brunch in Grand Rapids. Well beyond the ordinary with sushi bar, cheeses, all kinds of salads, omelet and crepe stations. The have a roaming cart that serves individual portions of scallops, sirloin, chicken, filet, etc. Well worth the price.
A bit lackluster. I brought my girlfriend here as a bit of a treat. Service was amazing and wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was very overpriced for the portion sizes and quality. The ambiance was delightful, from the beautiful vistas overlooking the Grand River and parts of Downtown Grand Rapids, to the wonderfully romantic lighting and seating options. Overall an enjoyable experience, but I’m not likely to recommend it.
We had a large group and had to separate tables which was fine however the server was less than pleasant. Made us switch seats to accommodate himkeeping track of couples.
I'm a firm believer that maybe someone was having a bad day so we'll chalk it up to that.
I was so impressed with my experience at Cygnus27. I took my wife for our 27th wedding anniversary and it just so happened that Cygnus27 was on the 27th floor. The view of the city along with watching the sunset was just awesome and very romantic. Let's talk about the menu and food; all the food had such a great taste; the appetizers were very appealing and delicious, the center of the plate was juicy, flavorful and well prepared on the plate. The desserts were over the top and , in my opinion, were just world class; they were the best desserts we have ever had---I would recommend that everyone tries out Cygnus27. The hospitality was top notch as well; from the complimentary valet parking, to the greeting host, to the waiter and all the way to the manager who brought our desserts. Very professional, relaxing atmosphere and just a great night of customer service. Thank you Team Cygnus27 for making my 27th wedding anniversary dinner a success.
At dinner, we had an outstanding waitress, Kaitlyn who worked with the chef to accommodate our food allergies (no wheat and no dairy). WOW. Kaityln was great, the food was great, the martini was great, and they couldn't have done more to please us. Thanks, Kaitlyn, and thanks Cygnus
We love the view even though our table was in the center of the room. It's the main reason we try to dine here at least once a year.
Our waitress Carmen was outstanding and made the night very enjoyable. She's a treasure!
The food was overpriced for the quality and would visit more if the menu was more affordable. We also wish there were local craft beers to enjoy along with the
Celebrating 20th Anniversary at a window table with a beautiful view. Brandon, our server was excellent and fun. The tapas and entrees were exquisite and perfectly prepared. Evening topped off with a lovely unexpected gift of goodies for our anniversary. Highly recommended!
