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.
The cocktail selection was excellent and with some assistance of our server, Abigail, we savored 4 off the list during our visit. The appetizers we chose, calendar and the octopus were excellent as well. Our entrees were the filet of beef that was cooked to perfection at medium rare and nearly melted in your mouth it was so tender. The other choice was the scallops which, again, were cooked to perfection and the risotto bed it sat on was cooked perfectly as well....all around excellent!
We then ran off to our concert and returned just before closing at 1045 and finished the evening with delectable desserts and some local coffee from Ferris....you just can't miss no matter your choice here!
Best table in the house! Great service and fabulous food!
Great experience, both food and service exceeded our expectations. Waitress had excellent suggestions and the service was phenomenal! Keep up the good work!
Have wanted to Cygnus for years and we finally made it. An 8 o'clock reservation meant we were treated to a spectacular sunset while enjoying the best filets we've have in a long time. Given the location on the 27th floor of the Amway, we anticipated high prices and were pleasantly surprised to find we were mistaken.
We've dined here a number of times with our son. Wait staff always does a good job. We where doing an early Mothers Day dinner to beat the crowds. We were disappointed with the change to a more casual dining experience doesn't cater to a younger palate. The attempt to come up with an alternate meal didn't work after a couple of attempts. We would absolutely go again if we were without our son but that's rare.
very loud and hot air conditioning wasn't on and the oysters on half shell were terrible tasting ....
I can't say enough about the friendly staff!!! Anna was our waitress. She was very informative since it was our first visit (4*29*18)!! A special thank you to Sean O'Donnell and staff for a phenomenal experience!! I would definitely recommend to others.
Food and service were amazing! We have never been disappointed at Cygnus.
I took my daughter and two friends to dinner here for her 13th birthday. Our waiter was so gracious and attentive and we had a wonderful spread of tapas. The girls (and I) loved everything! They even obliged us with potato bravas which is only on their bar menu. Lovely meal, wonderful sunset view over the city.
Waiter was great, host was very friendly. My wife was very happy
Excellent dining experience. Classy. Quality. Great service.
My daughter and I had brunch here yesterday and it exceeded our expectations. From the hostess who checked our bags and coats to the wait staff, the service was wonderful. The food and mimosas were fabulous. I highly recommend❣️
Such a wonderful date night. Loved our waitress, Carmen. Super professional and accommodating. Delicious food, scallops and Arctic char fish were great. The ambiance is a bit dated (even though it is modern). They need to revamp their decor (carpet!!) Overall super clean though.
