Not A Door To Door Sales Person Place

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

The place is upscale, the service is great and they make you feel "special" and cared for. I was told to go there for brunch on Sunday, and indeed, it was a great experience. The selection of food is amazing: from meat to seafood to desserts. Drinks are also very much appreciated. Bottomless mimosas are very nice, with a variety... More

Cygnus 27 offers a Sunday Brunch from September to May every Sunday. Cygnus 27 is located at the top of the Amway Grand Plaza on the 27th floor. The view is spectacular and the variety of food is unbelievable. The Bloody Mary Bar has everything you would want to add to your vodka and the Prosecco flows like water.

My husband and I had been to Cygnus 27 previously for Sunday brunch and decided to try it again for dinner for a special occasion.

Given that it's a buffet, the staff were extraordinarily friendly and attentive. Great selection of foods, very yummy. Try the bloody mary bar or the endless mimosas!
