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.
Thank you

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.

Excellent food, amazing variety, service was fantastic. It certainly isn’t cheap, but is a pretty good value.

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!

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.
