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.

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

The prices were hi, $16 for a hamburger, and menu fluffed up, if your a meat and potato man this is not the place to be. We told the waitress we were leaving that it wasn't what we thought and it was a shoot in the dark checking it out, she was very very understanding and said the kitchen could... More

Cool setting in downtown Grand Rapids. Highly recommended. Whether you want an entree, apps, charcuterie, tapas or just some great wine... A nice stop. 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. You can also buy a nice taste or... More

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.

Wandered in as I was staying across the street. Very comfortable place as a single woman. Food was fabulous. The salad was tasty and unique. Gazpacho clean and crisp. Pâté so tasty. Reasonably priced in my opinion. I liked it so much I went back the next day for happy hour. The decor is sort of upscale diner.. At least... More

Menu is separated by small, medium and large plates allowing you to put together a nice range of delectable options based upon your hunger and group size. The smoked whitefish, bbq quail and chicken and dumplings were great. The pasta was a bit bland and despite all of the flourish of the french press the coffee was bitter but overall... More

Reserve is my fave Michigan dining experience although without Matthew Millar at the helm, I'm not sure you could replicate his skills. Still, in a sea of bland, pedestrian and awful, reserve shines. With both food and its extensive wine offerings, which are first rate. The design and ambience is fabulous. The best meal I have ever had in Michigan... More

Food selections are built around good wine. Great place to get charcuterie and small plates. Nice selection of wines, which come in "tasting" portions if you like, so you can try several. Service is just a little bit slow. Great energy and people watching.
