We came up here with friends around 10:30 on a Saturday night. The seating and atmosphere were great. The Cygnus coffee was good. Baileys, Kailua, grand mariner, coffee, and whipped cream. My friend got the chocolate sphere for dessert and said it was great. It looked cool.

We were very disappointed in our experience. While the food was good the atmosphere has declined to the point that we will probably not return. The Latin music was loud and not relaxing. The menu is no longer what a fine dining venue typically has to offer. The decor was lacking and they no longer have table linens, a staple... More

We ate dinner at Cygnus 27 on our wedding night. The view was breathing taking. We were able to reserve a table that was at the windows. It was a great dinner. We both stepped out of our food comfort zones for the evening. I had a duck entrée and my husband had a salmon entrée. We also ordered the... More

I have no problem spending 30-40 dollars on an entree on an al a carte menu IF the resulting meal is spectacular. This menu is limited, unappealing and the food was just okay. My filet was cooked perfectly, but the vegetables were overcooked and room temperature. The dessert we ordered was still frozen in the middle (not intended to be... More

Pleasantly located bar on a top floor of the Amway Hotel which provide wonderful service bartenders, great appetizers, and a stunning view for July 3d. Disappointed no Amway Signature Drinks

Why did we wait so long to visit Cygnus? The food was fantastic, the service exceptional and the view of Grand Rapids breathtaking.

We went to Cygnus for dinner. The server however very kind was very slow. In fact we spent most of our time waiting rather then eating or drinking. We started with the ceviche which was good but needed something to eat with it such as crostini or homemade tortilla chip. The salads were the highlight of the meal. For dinner... More

We had dinner at Cygnus on a Friday night before attending an event. The food was really really good, the service was outstanding and the bill was actually a bit less than we expected. We started with the machego fritters, they are excellent! We shared the arugula salad which was also very good. I really liked that they put it... More
