Really enjoyed the food. Liked sitting in the back area where sides are opened and exposed and you can feel the breeze from being outside without the worry of the sun beating down on you or getting wet if it rains. Great sangrias!

Dinner for 4 adults in very cramped booth. Other party member's food was mediocre. Mine was awful. Steak was over cooked to shoe leather. I sent it back and server acknowledged that it had been prepared improperly. I had to wait for a new meal while others in my party were nearly finished when it arrived. Felt rushed the whole... More

We had dinner here last night. Lovely restaurant, fine dining. Even though it was a Monday evening, not usually a busy night, the restaurant was full. Great buzzy atmosphere. Good place for family, couples, and groups. Lovely food- a more European menu than many American restaurants- a nice change. Very good service too. Highly recommended.

Avoid this restaurant. The bouncers are not trained. A bouncer dragged a woman up two flights of stairs who was carrying a glass of water coming out of a bathroom on August 1. The police were called and the woman suffered multiple bruises. The bar is too crowded and the staff is not trained to manage guests nor knows how... More

Only negative, it took awhile... More

Pretty good food on the higher end of the scale of both price and quality. Atmosphere was classy and quiet which we really enjoyed. Service was TOP NOTCH! Over all I would say you get elegant food ant a fair price. I would definitely go there again.

Ate here on the 4th of July with several friends. The food was really good, but the temperature when it was served was barely warm. I wanted to send it back, but didn't. The service was good and the waiter was happy to answer all of our questions. Overall, one of the nicest places to eat in Grand Haven.

Food and service was great. We had a table of 8 and there weren't any issues at all. The ambiance was fun and the place was packed!

Nice place to grab a salad or dinner. I enjoyed the salad with salmon and my friend enjoyed the medallions of beef [although it did not come with any sides choices].

We went out to Grill Room without the kids. The place is nice we felt like we were the only table our server had. He was right there when we wanted him and wasn't around while we were talking. The food was great. We finished with a bananas foster for desert.
