Great food and service and we got to watch the sunset. A little disappointed that when we didn't order alcohol, the service got a bit slower.

My wife and I visited the Amway Grand for an overnight stay to celebrate her birthday, we chose to dine at Cygnus 27 and are very happy we did, the restaurant is situated on the 27th floor offering a very nice view, the food and service were excellent, we would definitely return and recommend you try it as well.

Main courses were the Salmon, and neither of us remember the name on the menu, but it was grilled and served over Udon noodles. I had the "Special" Surf and Turf, an 8 oz Filet and Lobster tail. The Filet was done to perfection and the Lobster mouth watering. We shared the Special Valentines dessert with coffee. All of this... More

We dined here for dinner when staying at Amway.We shared the Maine lobster cakes which, although small, were delicious. For dinner, I had the filet of beef tenderloin with root vegetable mash and my boyfriend had the shrimp and scallop brochette. Both were fantastic. For dessert, we shared the chocolate sphere. Amazing! Service was great. Sunday brunch did not disappoint.... More

I went to the restaurant to have a drink one night while meeting friends there. The view of Grand Rapids is outstanding. The food others had looked very appealing and smelled good. The atmosphere and new age feel of the bar and restaurant made it awesome. I would definitely recommend people to visit this place when staying at the Amway.
