Had a very nice dinner here. Great views and wonderful service. Three course meal for tonight's early seating. Salad and soup were excellent. Main course we had filet that was very good. Could have used either a few more potatoes or a vegetable with it. Desert was very good, mine initially was overdone, but they took it back, replaced it... More

Atop the Amway grand hotel in Grand Rapids, you will not be disappointed by this extraordinary restaurant which not only overlooks Grand Rapids but overlooks the grand river US 131. Allow yourself plenty of time for dinner as they will not rush you out in the cuisine is fantastic at a reasonable price

For several years my friends and I have looked forward to our holiday celebration at Cygnus. We enjoy the decor, the view of the city, the service, and usually the food. However, last night two us were very disappointed with the halibut. It clearly was overcooked and had been sitting for a long time before it was served to us.... More

My spouse and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here...a special event at a special venue. Warmly welcomed by hostess as well as server. Great cocktails before dinner. Sever graciously split a salad which was more than ample. Entrees were very good and I would recommend the sausage stuffed trout as unique and tasty; would order again. Spouse's rack of lamb...

With so many choices within a block of the Amway Grand Hotel, the main advantage Cygnus has is the view. The food is inventive but also expensive and small portioned. Service was very good, but also slow paced and unhurried. We enjoyed the bread and the desserts the most. The chocolate sphere was like a magic giant s'more. The dulce... More

Came here while visiting Grand Rapids. Was made to feel very welcome by staff. My server was outstanding. Restaurant has the absolute best view of the city being on the 27th floor of a hotel. Ordered the Rack of Lamb. It was delicious. For dessert I had the Chocolate Sphere. Save room for it. Would definitely go here again if... More

Cygnus 27 is a experience from start to finish. The 27 floor ride on the elevator adds to the anticipation and the restaurant does not disappoint! The food is exquisite, the atmosphere is unbeatable with views of downtown Grand Rapids (especially at night) and the service is impeccable.

I stayed at the Amway Grand when I was in Grand Rapids for a conference during ArtPrize in October 2016. After a long day of attending meetings and looking at art, it was nice to go to Cygnus 27 with friends for a late night drink. The ambience is nice, but not too fussy, and the views are fantastic.

At our second trip to the Amway Grand with friends we second our dinner at the Cygnus in the hotel. Great views of the city through the glass surrounded dining experience. The servers are very attentive, possibly a little too much but I guess better than the other end. If you are planning a light meal don't plan on the... More

Thank you to the Cygnus team for the seamless dining experience. We came into the restaurant to celebrate my daughter's birthday, and were delighted by the cocktails and expertly paired food and wine courses.
