“Great Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

After a New Years Eve stay at the City Flats Hotel my wife and I had brunch in the restaurant on the top floor of this LEED certified hotel. Surprisingly, we nearly had the entire restaurant to ourselves for a wonderful meal with a great view. Hot coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice and a very reasonably priced menu with quality food are all reasons to eat here (as well as the previously mentioned view). Our waitress was pleasant, efficient and attentive. This is the second time we've eaten here (the other time was for dinner) and we will definitely go back, certainly in the summer to enjoy their outdoor deck.

“Great dessert spot in downtown Holland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

We didn't even see the dinner menu, as we stopped by for a first visit, drinks and dessert. The carrot cake, flourless chocolate cake, banana bread pudding and traditional vanilla crime brûlée were our picks of the six offerings...worth a return trip!

“CitySen Grand RAPIDS: Terrible non-existant service, overpriced, so/so food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

We went with a party of 8 to CitySen (CityFlats/ GrandRapids) - whilst the location was okay (liked the funky-ness of the hotel experience, not the location of the tables/sitting close by to the front desk where people are checking in - just like having dinner in the hotel lobby!) the service was right out horrible or non-existant, the food was okay but not impressive, the prices WAY overpriced for what they offered!!!

Our waitress must have waitered never before in her life: it took about 20 min to get anyone's attention ( with a prty of 8?), took for ever to get water...and drinks, brought the mediocre food before drinks, still no silverware - had to track the "water person" down to get silverware for the food which was in the meantime cold, mixed it all up, added automatically 20% service at the end? No apology, lame excuses - no idea why I did not ask to speak to the manager - maybe b/c we were celebrating our friends b'day and I did not want to ruin - even more - the overall bad experience? Left with a bill which for sure was incorrect - when we asked for separate checks the waiter took the total, and split every single item on the bill by 8 - e.g. an item priced at $ 10.00 showing as an item at $1.25 listing all teh items consumed - no way to check upon accuracy.
Will NEVER GO BACK!!!!!
