Excellent food service and view

Took colleague when we discovered benthams not open in evening. Hint Valet park and they will validate. Wonderful Christmas holiday evening. Pricey but with it and be sure to get a dessert and several forks!

The view from the top of the city is fantastic on a nice clear day. The menu is very nice and the food is excellent. The drink choices are very good and its about everything you would expect for a top notch restaurant. No hats allowed as we went in for lunch one day while walking around Artprize and found... More

Friends recommended Cygnus to my husband and me. I called a few days in advance to make a 7pm reservation and was told that they had a 6:45 available, which I made. When we arrived at 6:45, there were multiple tables open, including some on the lower level by the glass windows. We were seated on an upper level right... More

We had been wanting to visit Cygnus 27 for a while. Finally was able to get together with another couple during restaurant week. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and special requests (one of the guests having celiac and another being pregnant). The food was some of the best that we had in a while. Just wish that...

WOW! This is a topnotch restaurant at the top of the Amway Grand Hotel with a terrific view toward the setting sun over the river. The plate settings of orange and blue were perfectly done along with the very tall water and wine glasses. This is a special spot in downtown Grand Rapids. The service was top-notch and the food...

We had a small corporate Christmas party here but will never be back. The food was cold and service was slow.

We have been to Cygnus 27 brunch often over the years. Normally I love everything: the view, the food and the experience. This was my birthday celebration with my family and I was disappointed by the changes. Instead of printed menus with beautifully plated and freshly prepared selected items, all the options were placed on a buffet line sans the... More

We went to Cygnus while staying at the Amway Grand for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated at one of the tables near the window, which offered a great view of the Grand River. We started with the Octopus, which was amazing...Spicy, but not too much so. Washed this down with The Filth martini, which was delish... More
