Service was astounding! Our waiter was amazing! Some of the ladies felt the food had no seasoning and we weren't given steak knives!

Our server, Alex, was fabulous. Great smile, attitude, knowledge. He helped us choose our meals, although we are regulars! The food was even better than usual. Shanghai Noodles were delivered steaming hot & delicious- I substituted shrimp for pork. Ambrosia, a manager, checked on us throughout the meal to make sure everything was perfect. The Wolfgang Puck Cab Sauv is always a constant fav. It never disappoints. I ordered the chocolate souffle. OMG! Worth the wait!

Love this option in Grand Rapids...The Kitchen offers something for everyone. Cocktails and wine list are top notch. Kitchen staff can accommodate all my dining needs i.e. gluten, soy and dairy free. Service has always been great.

I would absolutely recommend the Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck. Our server Darcy was very attentive without being pushy. We started with the crab cakes which had a nice bright tomato garnish and a tasty pesto sauce. We then moved onto the main course. I had the chef's special which was a beautiful cut of steak with potatoes and asparagus, all expertly prepared. My fiancee had the Shrimp & Mussel Bigoli which she absolutely loved. Seeing their onion rings headed to a different table, we couldn't resist ordering some for ourselves, a decision we don't regret. Our visit was made even more memorable by a tornado warning during our meal. The staff of the restaurant and hotel were truly top notch in ensuring that their guests were safe yet comfortable.

The food was SO good! I had the meatloaf, which was elevated but unfussy. I was also surprised that the portions were filling, but the prices were still quite reasonable. Loved the passion fruit martini, the lemon sorbet, and the latte too. Alex was a very friendly, professional, and attentive waiter. We will definitely be back!

The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck is an amazing dining experience. When I am introducing individuals to dining out for the first time in Grand Rapids I always go there. The food is amazing and the wine is as well and you simply cannot beat the atmosphere and service.

This particular location does a very good job with Pizza, something puck has long been known for and they nail it. Everyone liked their food, multiple dishes across the board fit the tastes of each who ordered.

However, wine prices are absurd. The house "Puck" Pinot Noir merits special attention. It is left-overs from all over the state of California jumbled together. Given that most of California is far too hot for PN (Except coveted grapes in RRV and small plots in Central Coast) this wine is a nightmare and is sold at probably 10x production and shipping, pure profit. A go to wine because all the others are far two expensive (I did find two 'eastereggs' on the list).

Wine in America ought to be for everyone, but hard in a Bud Lite Country with these sorts of shenanigans.

In the past we've really liked this place. Tonight, my husband has the salmon and his exact words, "this is the most forgettable dish I've ever eaten". Had the truffle chips and they were just Ok. Not sure if this is a sign to come or just the weekend crew not caring about the food.

My daughter and I chose this place for a late dinner. The service was wonderful: very attentive and serving. Stephan, our bartender was very helpful. He even tracked down smoking chips and modified my old fashioned per my tastes. The food was great. My daughter loved her food. Dessert was great. The best creme brûlée I’ve had. The dessert drink was a great recommendation. I highly recommend.

Horrible experience; I booked a 10 pm reservation. I arrived at 10, was seated given a nice menu with what looked like very nice choices. Maybe 2 minutes later the hostess returns, promptly yanks the menu from my hand and stated, “it’s after ten the kitchen is closed, we only offer a limited menu now” and puts the hotel room service menu in my hand.

I promptly got up and left.

The service was top notch. My daughter wanted scallops for dinner and we saw it on the menu online, but they had just changed the menu. The manager came over and spoke to us and offered to change out the halibut dish for the scallops. This made our night! Thank you!!

It was okay...but for the price I felt like it was pretty lacking in flavor and really wanted to reach for the salt and pepper, but there wasn't any on the tables. The service was wonderful though, definitely no complaints there. Just wish the food was better for the price.

Please let the young lady that videotaped that at the moment the video has over 1800 views! My now fiance had our first date at your restaurant in November 2018 9 months ago. This will always be a special place for us!

Wonderful dining experience.

Only criticism I’d give is that my guests had their salmon a little undercooked, but nothing more than perhaps two minutes extra would have made it perfect. They actually didn’t complain, which meant it must have been otherwise exceptionally made.

Do get the lettuce wraps as an appetizer. Truly outstanding

First time going here for brunch and it was lovely...we sat outside on the patio and found the chairs and shade perfect. The buffet was priced fairly and had breakfast and lunch options including a waffle bar. Great place to sit and talk with family / friends and enjoy the beauty of the river.

Everything was fantastic. Both waiters were exceptional! We all ordered the Halibut, which was dry, but everything else, the Brussels sprouts, and the salad, the veggies that accompanied the halibut, were delicious!

Wonderful experience!! We have had three family birthday parties here! The service and the food are fabulous!! I didn't order the cake in time so they allowed me to bring one in. Thank you so much! I order the salmon dish every time because it's the BEST salmon I've ever had in my life. It is prepared to perfection, flavorful, and has a little kick to it. Every time I go to Grand Rapids, I want to dine at The Kitchen by Wolfgang Pucks!! :)

A very limited menu. Food quality was fine but the chicken in the Asian Salad was subpar. The first two craft beers I requested from the menu were out of stock. The booth was extremely tight for four people. We have little desire to return anytime soon.

We were in town for a concert and liked that we could reserve a table. Food was good, but felt the salad my sister ordered was too small a portion for the price. The pizza was very good.

The food and the wine were great, but it was really the service and ambiance that made it such a wonderful experience. Carmen, our server, knew the wine menu and the food menu very well and was able to make great suggestions. We never felt rushed and our water glasses were always filled. She was so friendly and the type of server you hope to have again. The clean and modern decor was balanced with the beauty of the riverscape outside the windows. All of us felt our meals were very well priced for the quality we received.
