    We were so looking forward to this evening and restaurant only to have everything go astray. Our waitress was fine, knowledgeable and timely in the beginning. To get right to the issue they have different staff deliver the meals and supposedly the main wait staff checks back once the meals are delivered. One of our meals was not what was ordered, and even though we told the wait staff several times he still left the wrong meal at our table. We waited too long for someone to come get the meal, for the waitress to check on the table, while telling my husband to begin eating his meal. We finally stopped a wait staff that was not even waiting on our table. He immediately took the meal and we waited again. While my husband tried desperately to eat slow. Which was causing friction between us because I thought we would be eating together. Finally our waitress returned, told us that the meals had been delivered to the wrong table, even though one meal was correct. Explaining that the other meal was being prepared, but it will take a little time. You have to wonder who got that meal? So when the meal(s) were delivered they brought my husbands second meal plate as well. Asking us if we would like to take it with us. Unfortunately we were going to the Theater and couldn’t possibly take a meal with us. Then the manager got involved and apologized, the waitress apologized and I ate very fast not really enjoying my meal or this experience. They ended up complementing my meal which they should have done anyway. So will we go back? Would we recommend? Yes to both of these questions but not immediately.

    Celebrating my friend's birthday at Reserve could not have been lovelier. Our server, Andrew, was attentive and informative, and graced us with a birthday dessert. The ambiance was calm, yet there's an energy at Reserve that is exciting and fresh.

    My husband and I dined at Reserve on a Saturday night before going to the theater. I ordered the duck breast for my entree. Ten minutes later our server returned to say that they had a special party that evening and they were "saving" the duck for them. This left me feeling like I wasn't special to them. I would have rather been told they were "out" of the dish than to have been told I wasn't special enough to order this dish. Kinda put a sour note on the meal. Ended up ordering the fish special - calamari sautéed with tomatoes, olives, capers and croutons. It was very good. Our appetizer was lamb meatballs that were good buy could have been more tender.

    Reserve Wine & FoodResponded on October 25, 2019Hi Kaye - Thank you so much for informing us of this unfortunate issue. We appreciate any and all chances to better ourselves, and our team, to continually grow and learn. Your server that evening has been informed of their misstep, and the service team has been properly instructed on how to deliver that type of news. Please join us again soon, and feel free to make your future reservation directly through me. Best, Megan Knapp, Assistant General Manager (616) 855 9463

    Steak came med rare when ordered well done Seafood linguine arrived without any shrimp. The manager did remove the cost of one entree from bill. Just frustrating bc we had limited time bc my guest was an actress that needed to eat in between shows at the DeVos Performing Arts center.

    Maybe on recommending to a friend. This is obviously a very popular restaurant and the reviews were great which we depended upon to make our decision to visit (out-of-towners). I can't say anything negative about the restaurant overall... just a bit surprised by the menu. It was heavily weighted toward "spicey/hot" and, for us, not a good choice (neither of us like or can handle food that leans hot). We found menu items but our selection was limited. Either the chef/restaurant needs to advise the nature of the cuisine or make a more balanced selection available. The wines were great. Place was NOISY/LOUD... not an "intimate" place. This is not a negative review... many people may like it. If you want "energetic" (in OpenTable terms!) and don't mind hot/spicey food, you may really like this. We wouldn't go back... just too hard with other options in the area.

    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.

    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.

    Reserve Wine & FoodResponded on August 19, 2019Bryce, Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience with us.

Myself, or Peter Marantette, our General Manager, would be happy to chat with you. Best, Megan Knapp Assistant General Manager
