At the end of this meal, my friend and I both agreed it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. From drinks all the way to dessert, it was spectacular. The food was incredible...perfect portions, amazing flavor combinations, and brilliant finishes. Our server, Rachel, was very knowledgable about the menu, and she had fantastic recommendations when we were feeling indecisive. 100% will make this my new go-to spot!

We went after a show at DeVos and had a wonderful meal. I chose Reserve because of their innovative menu and the terrific wine selection. The fois gras torchon and the squid starters were excellent. The fish was excellent as was the mushroom pasta. I had the steak tartare as my meal as the starters were generous. Our server was attentive. We were there for an early dinner and it was busy downstairs but the noise level was very good upstairs.

The atmosphere is great - upscale feel while still relaxed. The use of space is excellent for controlling noise level and allowing for different seating options. Everyone loved their food. The wine flights were fun and the servers were very knowledgeable about the wine selection. Service level was attentive but not intrusive. My friends and I will definitely go back!

Not many vegan or vegetarian options. Me and my wife had a couple of glasses of wine and left. Ended up going to San Chez which is extremely vegan and vegetarian friendly.

My wife and i stopped here for dinner on Friday night. Really glad we chose this restaurant. The wine menu was extensive, the restaurant was nicely appointed and comfortable, and the service was outstanding. Tyler was our server and he was friendly and familiar with the menu. We sampled several flights of wine and filled up on small plates, as they were too delicious too skip! We never even ordered an entree.

Yes it's a bit pricey, but worth the money. We would definitely come here again.

Great food, wine, and service, as always. They have the best charcuterie board around, hands down, and the wine selection by the glass or bottle is impressive. Unfortunately, when it’s busy, it’s quite loud and you sit right next to people, which is my only dislike of the place.

Delightful! We shared several small plates before our main course. The beet salad was outstanding...as was the pasta dish. The wine pairings were perfect. All of the food was creative, surprising and delicious. The service was perfect...enthusiastic and professional. There was one thing that wasn't quite as good as the rest and the waiter noticed I hadn't eaten much of it. After dinner the manager came to the table to apologize for it. I told him it was good, just not as good as everything else. He adjusted our bill accordingly without our asking. They really care about the food being the best it can be. I highly recommend this place. It is definately fit for a foodie. Oh.....and the chocolate dessert was unusual and wonderful! Try it.

Its a bit overpriced. The food was good but some of it was just regular something with a fancy name and a high price. Was a bit noisy and the people next to us REEKED of smoke the entire time, not the restaurants fault but you do sit close enough to people to notice this.

Reserve is a regular favorite. Food preparation is imaginative and well constructed, with excellent product. Waitstaff is knowledgeable and helpful -- sometimes a bit more than needed but it's nice to know they know what they are serving. Excellent wine list and bar service.

We dine at the Reserve several time a year. The service is very good and the wine selection is outstanding. The menu items offer a good variety whether you are hungry or just looking for a lite snack. Nice variety and fun. The outdoor deck is very nice when the weather is good.

We picked Reserve as we had tickets for a show next door and had never been there and we had the whole family. Kris our waiter was a superb server, I thought the atmosphere was a little cool for me. As I have a speech impediment I thought it was quite loud as it filled up. The food was great but you should have more than cheeseburgers for people that don't want to try new things. (my grandson) Anyway it was nice but I do not believe we will be going there again.

My duck was a little too rare. There is a fine line between a perfectly cooked duck breast and a rare breast. I also thought the drinks were too expensive. The other mites were amazing and the service was great.

Good for appetizers with friends, not romantic or intimate occasions. Seating is cafe style, where you bump your neighbors' chairs every time you move... The food is tasty, however, choices for dinner are limited and somewhat odd. For example, fish is paired with beans, no choice to have rice or vegetables or potatoes. I would probably come here with girlfriends for some wine and cheeses, appetizers, and not for dinner.

We went there for our 10th wedding anniversary and had booked via Open Table. On arriving, we were initially seated at a table on the main dining area which seemed less than perfect for what was supposed to be a romantic special evening. However, the hostess arranged for their upper level to be opened up just for us. Now that’s called excellent service! From that point onwards, we knew we were in for a great time. Our server, Kris, brought us complimentary wine to celebrate the anniversary. His service was outstanding, at par with some of the best restaurants around the country. My wife is a vegetarian and Kris not only made suggestions to suit her dietary needs but got the kitchen to make substitutions that were in compliance with her vegetarianism. I would recommend Reserve to all for special occasions. They truly made our special day even more memorable!

My go-to favorite place in downtown Grand Rapids; especially before and after Grand Rapids Symphony concerts at DeVos Concert Hall. It's not only the valet parking and location, however. It's the food, the locally-sourced menu, the knowledgeable staff, the creative chef, and the plain, honest taste of each dish. So much variety!

Service was delayed and slow on a Wednesday evening. My friend and I both ordered the pork chop and were not impressed, especially for the price. The meat was tender but lacked flavor. The side of polenta and greens were whimpy with no texture. The sauce was unbalanced and quite sour- it tasted like straight vinegar. My husband was not impressed with his entree either. Our other friend ordered the burger and said it was okay. There are so many amazing restaurants in Grand Rapids; we see no reason to return to Reserve.
