Description: Reserve is proud to present Grand Rapids with our homage to Wine, Pork, Cheese and even more wine! Executive Chef Matt Green has developed a network of purveyors to supply Reserve with hand-selected, seasonal produce, pork, Michigan raised lamb, beef and fish to anchor a locally driven rustic yet refined menu of simple, eclectic fare. Our goal at Reserve is to source the best possible product as close to home as possible. Our Charcuterie bar will serve up local and international cheeses and meats along with Reserve exclusives, house made sausages, terrines, and pates. The extensive international wine list was developed by certified sommelier Peter Marantette. The list features 102 wines by the glass and a bottle list of nearly 300 selections. Artisan cocktails and a focused craft beer list round out a unique dining experience here at Reserve.

We ate here for GR Restaurant week the 3rd week of August 2014. The theme this year was "Farm to Table'. There were plenty of options to choose from. We had the French White Wine flight- very tasty. We started with the cheese plate which was very good- 3 varieties of cheese with baguette bread and 3 toppings (Cherry Chutney,... More

I have been here at least 9x over the last 2 years, for lunches and dinners. It is a great spot for many purposes - interviews, girls' dinner, date night, meeting friends, happy hour, etc. I have always had a good meal here, and last night prompted me to finally write a review. It was Restaurant Week, but we skipped... More

The menu was very interesting and everything we tried was absolutely delicious. Wonderful flavors and blends of flavors. the Vanilla bacon (yes, vanilla bacon) was to die for!

I had a salad under small which was tasty and a good size. Someone had cucumber gazpacho and found the flavor interesting and good. I ordered lake Michigan white fish which came on... More

Highly recommended! Went twice during a recent business trip. Super friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable staff--especially about the wine list, which is really well put together. The food was excellent: great variety and locally sourced with numerous size/price options. Went once for drinks and once for a 10+ person meal, which they accommodated without a reservation (it was a Monday, but... More

I thought this place was really cool inside. The servers are very friendly and although the prices are a bit high, they had some really good appetizers and main dishes. I would highly recommend el Jamon de Bellota. Probably some of the best that I have had outside of Barcelona. In addition, I found the portions to be a good... More

Especially for a nice long dinner of food and conversation. Amazing selection of wines by the glass. They offer many nice flights of wine... Which I highly recommend.

We had a large group into Reserve for dinner and drinks. Our food was fresh and excellent! I had the white fish. It came out hot, with a nice presentation. We also tried the fat fries for an appetizer, which were a hit as well! The wine is also pretty amazing! I would definitely return.
