What strikes me most about our recent visit is how good the food really is! The preparations of everything show a great attention to detail. The fresh ingredients shine in the gazpacho preparation, as well as the tomato salad. Pastas are created in house, and they taste and feel fresh. The service is excellent. I have never had a server who did not know his/her stuff.

Our server was so knowledgeable about both the wine and food - it definitely added to our wonderful experience! We would definitely return and certainly recommend to others! Job well done by our server (I'm sorry I can't remember her name :(! ))

Wine flight was expensive but paired wonderfully with the charcuterie and cheese board. The accoutrements are ideal especially the honey and pickled onion with the brie!

The food was fantastic. We had a charcuterie board, shrimp and grits, grilled cheese gnocchi, red drum, and s'mores. My husband had a mezcal cocktail which he enjoyed a lot. Everything tasted great.

However, service was abysmal. We were barely greeted, nothing on the menu was explained to us, and then we waited nearly an hour for our charcuterie, all while watching other tables progress through their meals and receive their courses in a timely manner. We had to flag down our server to order our entrees even though she was spending time at tables right next to us, and she basically avoided eye contact with us whenever she walked by and never offered an apology for the wait (we were seated right next to the kitchen so she walked by a lot). We endured a similarly long wait for our entrees.

We were not made to feel welcome at all and, as a result, don't feel that I can recommend or would want return to Reserve in the future.

Bryce, Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience with us. We are so glad that you enjoyed the food, but certainly the service was not the impression we would hope to make. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss your dining experience a bit more. Please feel free to contact me directly at the restaurant at (616) 855-9463. Myself, or Peter Marantette, our General Manager, would be happy to chat with you. Best, Megan Knapp Assistant General Manager

Went with friends during Restaurant Week. Several ordered from the special menu. I ordered from regular menu. My husband ordered the Hoppin’ John and it was somewhat tasteless. We enjoyed the upstairs patio.

Came from Ann Arbor to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Our waitress Stephanie was amazing and helpful. Patrick, the sommelier helped us pick out some great wines to go with each of our courses. We loved everything from the food to the decor. We’ll definitely be back.

I would have preferred a low table, but otherwise, this was a very enjoyable evening. The menu is creative and very good. The wine selection has great variety! Stephanie, our server, was incredible. She was knowledgeable and very engaging. We'll be back! Thanks for a great evening!

We had a reservation for our anniversary. The table wasn’t ready when we arrived(early) so we got drinks at the bar. The bar staff was incredibly knowledgeable and made us some amazing drinks. They made sure that we had anything we wanted, kept communicating with us as the table they had slated for us stayed well beyond anyone’s expectations. We ended up sitting at a different table and had a wonderful experience. The food was amazing, and we were never wanting anything. Very nice job to the staff. Made our anniversary simply outstanding. Thank you.

Greg was our server and he was excellent. Very personable as well as knowledgeable about wines. We often will just order a number of small plates and share them. We've never been disappointed with what we've ordered at the Reserve.

Once a year I get together with the ladies of my family and this year we went to The Reserve. We had a great time drinking and eating shareables! I recommend the 34, it’s a Malbec.

The cheese platter never disappoints ever, that thing is phenomenal, the entrees we ordered however were just a little lackluster, great flavors. Just tiny portions for the price. Will come back and eat again, but will stick to just some Apps.
