    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.

    Amazing! The food was so good. We shared several small plates. Refreshing house made sangria. We had an outdoor table. Great views! Our waitress was absolutely the best. So fun. The chef came around twice to check on us and was very attentive. Defintely a top on my list of restaurants!

    The noise level was such that the six of us couldn’t talk-we asked to go outside on a couch but were told someone had reserved the couch. We had reservations as well. Will not go back

    Great vibe and a different view. This cozy place offers a nice option from the local breweries. We were there for happy hour and took advantage. The hushpuppies...AWESOME! The pretzel flight...LOVED IT!...The little pastry thingies...YUM! those were all half off as well as the drafts. We will most definitely be back

    Lovely space and vibe! The food needs a bit of boost in the overall flavor, was somewhat bland and a touch of spices or seasonings would help. Excited to see the food menu tweaked a bit. The cocktails were delicious.

    My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience with Knoop. The food was delicious, the ambiance was chill and laid back, and our server was great! She was super knowledgeable about the menu and the daily features. We ended up trying a lot of different dishes and we are planning to go back soon to try the things we missed!

    Nothing special. The pictures made it look more upscale than it is. The decor is actually kind of cheap looking. Service was slow (but they’re understaffed.) The food options are limited but the quality was good enough. There are a lot of other places to go so I’m not sure the experience was good enough to warrant going back.

    Tempura mushroom appetizer was the best. Pretzels are good too. Waygu sliders are dry, so pass on those. We understood and were made aware of the 90 minute time limit for dining. However, appetizers didn’t arrive until 40 minutes had passed. When you place a time limit for eating, please Knoop do your part to provide timely service!

    Kait was an excellent waitress and she was sweet and kind! She did a great job of being patient and putting our order in just when we needed it. Loved our experience with her. The food wasn't as great as we had the last time; the pretzels were a different shape, and they were much harder than the knotted ones originally. The Sicilian Platter was a bit disappointing as well. Overall, we return for the service, and the great ambiance.

    Waitress only checked on us a few times. She was pretty unprofessional talking bad about her boss. She didn't tell us how much she was charging for things and our bill came out to an absurd amount for just a few drinks. Not worth the money

    Such a fun and cute place but the menu redo is really disappointing. The drinks are so overpriced compared to other places in town and just so so. The food menu is really lackluster. We also had made a reservation earlier in the day and then got a call about 15 minutes before saying "since we booked the reservation so last minute they can't accommodate us". It was super strange. They did end up getting us a table eventually but it was really off putting. All in all, there are so many great places in GR that this won't become a regular for us.
