    I went to Knoop for the first time on my birthday and fell in love! I took my friend recently for her first time and she absolutely loved it as well! I really enjoyed our experience on the patio. The food was delicious, the service was fast and friendly and the heaters outside kept us warm.

    Drinks were very good! Some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had! Food was 6/10 at best, we had the poutine and cheese board.

    Would you want to pay for a drink that’s 40 mins late for a table of 2. Neither would I. Good server but bad bar

    Mushroom used to be a favorite. They have changed mushrooms and just not the same. Drinks didn’t taste as good as before…so M43 did the trick instead.

    A reservation was made for my birthday, once i got there my reservation wasn’t even checked for. It closed at 11/midnight or something like that. we got there at 9 and asked to order food and the kitchen was apparently closed so after ordering a $16 drink that was very mediocre we left.

    This is our second time visiting Knoop and the food was a lot better then the first time. We loved everything we had! We got the Poutine, Pretzels, Papas Rellanas, Tempera Fried Mushrooms and Korean Fried Chicken. It was all so good! Our server Kait was really friendly and checked in frequently to make sure all of our needs were met. We were really happy with our experience this time!

    We did enjoy knoop, the food and the drinks. Only complains are the fact we set a reservation and weren’t able to be seated on the outdoor balcony, we were celebrating a special occasion and I assumed that setting a reservation with the comment about our occasion, they would’ve made sure to give us a good table. Another comment was the beer garden was beautiful, everyone was dressed nicely…. Except the staff. the host who seated us, was wearing tie dye crocs. With such a nice beautiful atmosphere, I would expect staff members to be portraying high standards. Overall the food was high quality, compliments to the chef! the beers were great! Overall experience was good, just had some thoughts that could’ve made the experience better.

    Our server was chatting with her friends at the table next to us the whole time. Have our table to someone else and she forgot about us because we weren’t in her section. Food was pretty good but it was maddening to see the server hanging out with her friends while she was being paid to work (and not doing any work). Liked the ambience but probably wouldn’t go back due to service.

    Not the best experience tonight. Unorganized, food was less than par and an overall poorer experience than in previous visits. Sure hoping Knoop steps up their quality and service game as it is a lovely restaurant.

    Knoop is one of my new favorite places to drink/dine in Grand Rapids. The shareable plates vibe is great for a date or a bunch of friends. While the drinks are on the more expensive side, it’s worth it to spoil yourself every once in a while in a very relaxing environment. Highly recommend!

    Everything was amazing with the exception of the dessert. Literally got one of everything on the dessert menu and compared to the main dishes, was disappointing to say the least. Will be getting dessert somewhere else next time.

    We attended on a Friday afternoon and sat on the rooftop - make sure to make a reservation, as is a smaller space. Great atmosphere and ambiance. We ordered wine and the waitress was happy to let us taste before getting a glass. The filet poutine was full of flavor, cooked to perfection, and my partner and I wish we had two!! Would highly recommend!

    Im not one to typically complain what so ever. However, my boyfriend and I came before the Kevin Hart show and had an awful experience. It took 30 minutes for our waitress to even come to our table and greet us. Once she finally came it took another 20-30 minutes to get our drinks. Then we gave our waitress an order for an app just to pick on before we leave. She then comes back 20 minutes later asking if we want to get food because “I have nothing for your table food wise.” We just decided to leave cash and leave. Would understand if they were slammed but it was pretty empty.

    Great space and view. Service was good. Drinks were good. Conceptually the Food needs serious work. Boring, greasy and lacked a strong flavor profile. While comfortable, the outdoor upholstered furniture was visibly dirty, to the point one of our party laid a a napkin down before she sat. The restrooms had a great design but were really dirty.

    Beautiful place with great ambiance. Mostly low bar/ coffee tables for sitting, which makes it hard to eat if order food. The food was good but not too many choices. Overall very nice place and I highly recommend it.

    Service was slow and we had to ask for silverware when food and drinks did finally arrive. Food was okay but very few lighter menu options. The drinks were very good and they had a nice selection so maybe a better a spot for just a drink.

    Pretty sure our server forgot about us on the rooftop. We ordered drinks and appetizers to start. We received our drinks quickly, but the appetizers took over an hour. We asked about them and about ordering dinner. We got our dinner much faster. It is a fun place for drinks, maybe go somewhere else for food.
