Mertens Prime, named a Top 10 restaurant by Grand Rapids Magazine for 2 consecutive years, is a French brasserie and steakhouse set in a historic 1914-built former hotel lobby and dining room that preserves and celebrates Grand Rapids' past. We offer a variety of French classics along with an impressive French-touched steak menu, including Chateaubriand. The Mertens cocktail list is an exact replica of the drinks and menu design from the New Hotel Mertens bar, circa 1939, and includes the same 50 cocktails served in 1939 that are as relevant today as they were 80 years ago. Mertens also operates a Cafe adjacent to Prime. Cafe Mertens offers warm beignets & poutine every day and does not offer table service. The restaurant's rooftop cocktail lounge, Mertens Rooftop, is open seasonally and it is *not* possible to make a reservation for the Rooftop via Mertens Prime.

    We found ourselves incredibly disappointed after reading such great reviews. The pasta was under cooked, steak was under cooked & pork chop was over cooked. Service was slow and our appetizers & entrees came out warm to lukewarm warm. The only two redeeming qualities were the wonderful wine list & Matt’s wine recommendation. We feel we overpaid for a sub par meal & experience.

    We had a reservation for four. We ordered drinks at the same time and two of the drinks took 20 minutes and the other two took 45 minutes to arrive. We ordered entrées and sides. They never brought out the sides and we finished the entire meal and did not have any sides. The garlic was not cooked and not able to be eaten. The chicken was dry and the steak was overcooked. It was a very disappointing experience and the manager did discount one round of drinks and the sides from the bill.

    First time coming here in the winter and it is a really nice, cozy spot. I guess I have overlooked it bc I usually go here for the Rooftop. The space itself is gorgeous in a very European sort of way. And the French food is great. Price-wise it's not cheap, but it's not nearly as expensive as some others in town. We chose well and didnt spend a lot at all and had a great time.

    Lovely atmosphere. And cheaper than Chophouse or Bowides, but better menus and just better food overall. It just has a very home-made French feel. The bananas foster for dessert is excellent too.

    Not sure what exactly it was but after my girlfriend and I each started with the French Onion soup we both instantly started having an issue with our stomach feelings upset and extremely bloated. We both only ate half of our steaks and side. We both went home and spent the first hour on the toilet before feeling better again. This was my second time here and extremely disappointed compared to the first time at Mertens at last year’s Valentines. Not sure when I will be back.

    My vote for best overall menus in Grand Rapids. My cassoulet had great flavor, but a tad undercooked. Tagine was beautiful looking and very nicely seasoned. Cocktails are incredible. Cheesecake was to die for as well. We'll be back

    Beautiful building with just the right lighting. Excellent menu. Part New York-ish feel and part-French feel to everything . I doubt the Leo's crowd would like it here ("Turn up the lights!" "Where's the baked potato with my steak?" they'd crow... sorry, rant against GR-diners over. This is an elegant, authentic trip back in time. Steaks are great, but French items are my preference here. Very homemade.

    Both Matt and Elaine were amazing but that’s about as far as it goes. The restaurant smelled it was dark I found it dingy lampshades were crooked seats were terribly uncomfortable regarding the food although my steak was delicious we were not told ahead of time that it was à la cart, and we assumed there would be some sort of side, we were shocked that bread at a French restaurant was not offered.

    We've been regulars for years. Another great evening. Some of the servers have been there forever too. It's just a beautiful space with good lighting and great food. A real Grand Rapids original compared to the quasi-chains.

    One of our go-tos in Grand Rapids. Talking to the servers I am going to do my best coming on weekdays in the winter can be slow downtown. I thought I'd mention that here. We love just about everything on the menu; if you like a well-marbled ribeye, try the steak frites. Which is a very fair price. Desserts are awesome here too.

    Great ambiance and food. Service good too. Very unique all the way around. If youre used to the sort of very-basic (but good enough!) menus of Leo's or Chophouse or Bowdie's then just stick with steak at Mertens. Because my partner's NY strip was awesome. But for those that dig a little deeper, the cassoulet with the pork shank was out of this world. Bananas Foster amazing too. On one hand with the all the great local history oozing out of the place Mertens is the perfect GR restaurant, then again I can only imagine what the suburbanites thought of the menu when they ate here on Valentines. Anyway, if you like wine and cocktails and food, then go here.

    My wife and I had a 9pm reservation for our anniversary dinner. We were seated, and served water. We waited for an hour before the waitress informed us that our appetizers were JUST being made. And it would be another 35 minutes for our dinner. Our entire anniversary dinner was ruined and our plans got pushed back. The restaurant has poor communication, and an insane waiting time. I would 100% recommend this restaurant if you have an unlimited time to wait for food you’ll never get. 0/10

    Waited 2 hours total just to get to the main course. Ordered filets and ended up getting ribeye because they were apparently out of filet, never asked us if we were okay with getting ribeye. My date’s ribeye was raw on the inside. We just ended up refusing to eat, big waste of time.

    Our first dinner a month ago was great so we returned. Not so good this time. We both ordered the 8oz Filet Mignon, bacon-wrapped w/HERB garlic COMPOUND BUTTER. The steak as serviced on a skillet that was barely warm. The Filet Mignon was not bacon wrapped and the herb garlic compound butter had already set up (was no longer liquid). We made our server aware and he took only one butter at first and we had to point out that both had same issue. He brought back 1/2 melted. The meat was cooked to medium rare as requested but had obviously been sitting for some time before being served. Our server indicated there as cheesecake with a blueberry drizzle on top so we tried it. There as no blueberry drizzle. We both ordered a Cappuccino. Possibly it's just me but I expect a good service to ask if we need a sweetener but I had to ask for it. This is marketed as a high end restaurant. We were disappointed. We had a nice table location but the room we were in has high and seems to be an echo chamber and the room used for large groups. Due to a large group, it was difficult to have a conversation using our normal speaking volume. I supposed this is luck of the draw. We will likely give Mertens another chance because our first dinner there was so great but will ask to be seated on the opposite side of the restaurant next visit to see if it's quieter. Would not go out of my way to recommend based on our last visit. If someone were to ask, I would tell them about both of our visits and to give it a try with an open mind.

    We went to mertens to celebrate a milestone birthday with friends. My husband had been wanting to treat himself to a steak- at 7pm- the restaurant was out of steak. This is a steak house? Disappointing. The food was good, ambiance is one of the best in GR, the noise level was great for conversation.

    Great food, drinks and ambience. The service was a bit slow and our main course took about 45 minutes to come out after we ordered, but it was a Friday night. Our server was great and had a really nice presentation of making the cherries jubilee. Jeff also came out to deliver our appetizer and gave us main course recommendations, which we took! He did a great job of going into more detail about a couple of the items and ingredients we weren’t well-versed on.

    Our server ( going off our receipt because we didn’t get her name ) Elaine was the best! The interior design is gorgeous, the servers are all wonderful and so kind, and the food is to die for! The whole atmosphere made my fiancée and I feel very comfortable and as if we were at home. Depending what you get you can either come out spending nothing or a lot. We ordered a total of 13 items. 2 drinks, 3 small plates, 2 entrees, 3 sides, and 3 desserts. Coming out at a total $166 or $175.96 with taxes. Highly recommend to add the French onion soup, garlic potato puree, the chocolate pot de creme, the cheesecake, and the bananas foster to whatever you may choose to get with your entree. We got the whole roasted chicken and it was amazing. Mertens Prime is a must try and definitely will be coming back.

    Awful service, waited an hour for my first drink and had to get the second from the bar. Way too long to be served or get any food. When we did get our main it was around 100 minutes after our original reservation. Food was also poor, overpriced. Very disappointed. Wanted a luxurious evening and was furious by the end.

    Unique location, not many vegetarian option, but as a French cuisine that can be expected, the cheese and French onion soup were phenomenal, the main entree was adequate, I got the ratatouille pasta. Service took a while but that is to be expected on valentines so I was not upset about that. And ambiance was interesting, it’s quite dark in some spots so there are highly varied experiences based on where you are seated

    We wish we could say we fell in love with the place. We were genuinely looking forward to a special evening of fine cuisine at a beautifully restored, historic downtown bistro. What we experienced instead was a poorly timed, uneven presentation of mediocre food at a dimly lit rescued flophouse. It would have been comedic had it not been so seriously overpriced despite the 25% discount the apologetic waiter unhesitatingly offered us. A decent bottle of wine and good company mercifully saved the occasion. Maybe the rooftop on a warm, summer evening next time?

    We went for Valentine’s Day and were expecting a lovey meal. We were seated quickly at a table for two, which was directly under vent pushing cold air on us. We asked to have it turned off, but it never was corrected. Because they were busy, there was no place to move. Our server must have been new, as she was not aware of the types of bourbon or gin the bar had stocked. My martini came without an olive, our escargot and salads arrived at the same time, and then we waited 20 minutes for our entree. The lamb tagline was delicious, but the steak was overdone. We then ordered Bananas.Foster -the menu indicated it was prepared tableside. It arrived in a bowl and our server said they were not doing it tableside that night. These issues may seem petty, but we have dined there before and it was fine. But when you spend $260 for a meal, you expect more.

    We did not have a great time during Valentine’s Day dinner. Our steaks were not cooked to our preference and our side was lukewarm at best. The price paid is way too high for the food/experience you receive. Will not return!

    First courses were outstanding. Main courses came out hot but they were either overcooked or sat under a heat lamp too long. Dessert was supposed to be flambéed table side per the menu description but server dropped off and walked away.

    Meals could been prepared much better than served. Salmon - soggy. Lamb - dried out and placed in a pool of couscous and liquid (soup like). An overall disappointment. Bonefish and Carabbas can serve up a better meal and that's not necessarily a high bar.

    I really love the food and that's why I go, not because it's price. The building is neat, but feels like a juxtaposition. I understand it was Valentine's day and I expected service to be different because of volume and a servers obligation to make the night special for everyone. I'm single and decided to go on a date with myself, last second I invited my friends and his partner. They were the extra wheels in this scenario, but I felt like the third wheel when the server never accommodated my thirst. I had to call him back just to be get a finger beer and I guess he didn't like that because he never got the second one I asked for (at the beginning of my meal) so I was forced to ration the rest of my water, which also was never filmed. I was conveniently placed next to al the carafes and still never got more. I didn't want to grab one myself but I was really tempted. Our society loves sex and alcohol and clearly people who partake are honored. Maybe I should stay home since I'm single and don't drink since

    One of our worst dining experiences ever. The kitchen was obviously having problems. It took 20 minutes for the waiter to come to our table. It took over 40 minutes for us to get our first course and about 2 hours to get our food. The food was not worth what they are charging at all. The waiter was so embarrassed that he just avoided our table. The dirty appetizer plates sat at our table for at least 30 minutes. It took 30 minutes for my husband to get a refill on his soda. When we did get the appetizer it seemed like it had been sitting under the warming light for a long time. At least two people that were seated after us were finished before we even got our meal and they had dessert. Management took about 50% off our bill but it still wasn’t worth it. They were going to give us a complimentary dessert but we didn’t want to stay any longer. It was also very dark. Hard to see the menu.

    Took a while to get our appetizers and entrees, overall the phone was amazing once we got it. I’m glad we went

    We had a 6:30 pm reservation for 6 people. When we arrived it was busy but not every table was full. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Meatballs and Brussels sprouts. We were told the meatballs take 15 minutes. It took over an hour for the appetizers. We ordered food shortly after that due to appetizers taking so long. It took almost two hours to get our food. 4 out of 6 were steaks as we were told that’s what they are known for. 2 out for the 4 steaks were cooked incorrectly and undercooked to our liking and had to be returned twice to correct. I would not go back and the quality of the food wasn’t good for the prices.

    Our reservation was for 5:30p (we had a show to attend at 7:30p) We finally had drinks served and ordered dinner at 6:30p Food for 3 of the 4 of us arrived at 7:30p Despite being warned that their med rare for steak was more rare than most (we said that was great), what did arrive arrived overdone (at least medium.) The french onion soup ordered was delivered with some of the meals (rather than in advance), and the cheese was burned black. The pork chop ordered for the 4th person hadn't arrived by 8:30p (3 hours after our arrival, and 1 hour after the other meals arrived) when we finally gave up and left. We missed the first half of our show and had a very disappointing experience at Mertens. Other friends happened to be in the restaurant at the same time and shared that they left after two hours having never received their meals (6 people.)
