    Always have a great time here! My (now) husband and I had our first date here, and we came back right after we got married! We love the food and drinks, the staff is incredible, and we love the atmosphere.

    This was my first time at this restaurant. My first impression when I blew past the "host station", was that I didn't have a clue that I was supposed to check in there. It was barely an iPad stand and the person was wearing a baseball cap and doing other tasks. It needed to have more of a presence for a entry. The knot art and delft plates were very unique and the view really nice. The table we sat at was a small round table with a side marble stand that was badly chipped, and not appealing. The drinks were top-notch on flavor and presentation, albeit $15 and small. It was a little overpriced, I felt that $12 would be more appropriate. We had the savory pretzel and the slider special. The pretzel was great with the miso spread, but the sesame seeds were added on and a little messy. The sliders should be on the menu from now until eternity! Lamb and Beef with whipped honey brie, roasted chopped broccolini with chimichurri and spinach. These were so savory and unique that I had a dream about them. My only critique is that I would have taken a cookie cutter or something to give the impression that the buns were not just purchased Hawaiian rolls. The server was kind and helpful, but I would suggest that a carafe of water be given to the table and not to remove napkins or give a fresh one just in case if not finished with the table/food. The furniture was so unique and fresh and I look forward to trying more items on the menu soon!

    It wasn’t busy at all. The venue is beautiful. The service was mid. They can’t/won’t divide your check unless it’s split equally. The menu is OVER-PRICED for mediocre food. I’ll probably go back but just for the views.

    We started our evening here for a multi generational birthday party. Cocktails only. Adam was the most amazing server!! Kept everyone straight and was very efficient. The people with whom I arranged the reservation on the phone were most helpful too. Can’t wait to visit again with a more manageable party and try some of the food. Thank you for a beautiful start to a great evening.

    We had very slow service and not that great of food or drinks.. need more options and not premade drinks. Our waitress was not engaged or efficient at all and it was loud, seats were very low and uncomfortable when trying to eat at a lounge and not get a table that we reserved.

    My fiancé and I came in Sunday evening, 2/18 to celebrate our engagement as he had proposed to me earlier that day! We came in and had a fantastic experience; everything from our service to our drinks to our food was top notch! Our server congratulated us on our engagement and we felt very relaxed and enjoyed our evening as we worked through our food and beverages. Everything was delicious, they mentioned they would be transitioning to the Spring menu soon so we will be back in soon to try out the new food and drinks! We even got a delightful red velvet cake gifted to us in celebration which was an absolutely lovely way to wrap up our evening. 11/10, highly recommend, definitely now our favorite restaurant in GR!

    The worst experience in dining. Food was horrible, was served gnocchi dish that was mush. Sent it back, was told it was gluten free. No where on menu did it say that. I am fine with gluten. Our salad had a metallic taste to it. It was so loud, couldnt hear the server. If all you care about is a drink, its your kinda place.

    The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t jaw dropping by any means. I got the bikini bottom buns and my company got the it’s a smash. The burger was yummy and so were the buns but I wouldn’t make the trip specifically to eat those again. Not terrible but not memorable

    This place has gone down hill. Server walked away several times without everyone saying what they would like to drink. Drinks were expensive which normally they are but with better service and better atmosphere. This place use to be great and packed now it was slow overpriced and horrible service.

    Knoop’s vibes were very cool - rooftop patio with plenty of shade in the afternoon. The Paloma is delicious (the happy hour Spritz and the White Lady were not great). The Spuds fries were delicious (the charcuterie board was not great). Our server Talia was attentive and there whenever we needed her.

    I have been to the Knoop a few times. The last time I was there the food was amazing! It has been about six months ago. This time was really disappointing. The menu was awful and the food was horrible. I asked for a Moscow mule which is my go to drink. It was not good at all did not taste like a mule I have ever had. In my visit I learned the the had a new chef the food reflect a chang and not in a good way.

    Our table was the bar section, the service was terrible. Our server seemed to constantly forget about us, and it wasn’t even busy. The food also is very small portions, tasted bland, and was expensive. Great for pictures and a view, but not a good place for service and food.

    We wanted to love it. We’ve been talking about going there for weeks… buuuuuut - SKIP THIS PLACE.. For a place to call themselves a Modern Dutch restaurant they should be ashamed that the only thing that even hints toward Dutch is the wall of Delft. Not one single item on the menu seemed to hit at a Dutch origin - not even a Stroopwafel with coffee or an Oliebollen or the most simple toast with Hagelslag… any one of these would take moments to source & add authenticity to their gimmick of calling it a Dutch restaurant in a Dutch-focused town. The food we did order was mediocre at best. The server was amazing, fun, and helpful - even steered us away from a few menu items that were not popular with guests. The rooftop views were moderate at best, mostly because the seating we were offered were low seats facing East, so we got no sunshine, a view of the balcony’s edge/railing and some neighboring rooftops. The most noticeable thing we saw in the view was another rooftop bar with westerly views and more comfortable looking seating (we went there after & it was a much better experience). The drinks we ordered were incredibly overpriced- even at happy hour pricing. The second round tasted like soda water. All in all, the hotel looked okay, but if you’re not sleeping there, I’d skip this restaurant. Actually, if you ARE sleeping there, skip this restaurant and adventure to any other adjacent property for better tasting cocktails & menu items.
