Cygnus 27 Ratings and Reviews
The ambience alone makes it worth every penny with such a marvelous panoramic view of the city. But the food and service are both outstanding making it an excellent choice for an extra special occasion. My wife and I were thrilled to be able to make a last minute reservation the day before Easter. Thanks to our waiter Max and the whole team for a great experience.
Disappointed in the quality and the changes to Cygnus 27 brunch menu. We have been regular for the past 15 years but we decided this will likely be the last time we go to Cygnus for brunch. The new Brazilian Rodizio menu leaves a lot to be desired. The meat was cold and tough. Wish they would go back to the small plates.
The only thing that was disappointing was we're staying at the Amway Grand, and called this restaurant to add to our reservation just one more person our son. We were told sorry we're completely booked, yet we were Sat at a four top, and we're there for an hour and a half the four top next to us never got Sat. I'm very disappointed , in that our son could not be with us because the restaurant stated they were booked. Problem? Yes! He was coming from Ann Arbor. We are staying at the Amway for four days, and will not go back to this restaurant while we're here.
Service and food were both great. The room was very hot when we walked in but cooled to a reasonable level before we left. We were sat in an area without a view, while tables by the windows were left empty the whole time we were there. If you want a window seat please make sure you mention it when making a reservation ( disadvantage to using open table, I guess)
Carmen was our waitress. she is extremely knowledgeable in all of the cuisine. Very outgoing and friendly. knows wines and other drinks. one of the best people we have seen anywhere in the business in a long time. she treated all her tables like they were the most special people in the restaurant .
Treated my girlfriend and I to a special dinner for our 1 year anniversary. The service was exceptional - waitress was very attentive and well versed of the various entrees on the menu. Drinks were made to perfection and the ambience was just right. Would recommend for a special date or special celebration. Thank you Cygnus 27! See you again soon.
We didn't like the food. The calamari was ok. The meatballs were good but the wild mushroom soup was bland to the point we were seasoning it with salt and pepper at the table to make it worth eating. And neither of us is much of a salt lover normally. The pork was good but overall we both felt the meal wasn't worth returning. Our server was very enthusiastic and probably the highlight of the meal. We will stick with Ruth's Chris next time
The menu at Cygnus 27 continues to evolve. What fun to try new things. And "Carmen" (from the 1913 Room), our server, is the best! She explains all the dishes and what flavors to expect. Finally, hats off to Executive Chef Chris (formerly chef de cuisine at the 1913 Room) for ramping up the menu. Great food, great service...Go!
My husband and I enjoyed a belated anniversary celebration. Our sever Carmen was outstanding with perfectly timed charming, friendly, welcoming service, and excellent drink recommendations (martini and Camus wine) to pair with our food. The calimari appetizer was fantastic, the filet was exquisitely done, and the view was spectacular.
The staff was friendly and courteous. They took very good care of us. Our waitress took the time to explain several of the dishes on the menu. We took her suggestion on several items - we were not disappointed!
The view is awesome. It was a great experience!
Cygnus is a great place for Sunday Brunch or a cocktail before or after dinner or an event. The views from the 27th floor can't be beat whether it is the afternoon or night. The bar staff is always attentive and creates the best cocktails. The service also can't be beat. I recommend Cygnus to anyone visiting downtown GR.
We were here for a birthday celebration Sunday brunch. The food was fantastic, and the service was extremely friendly if not attentive. Several times our coffee and water glasses were empty and we had to signal someone for refills. Also, the meat-to-table service was rather poor. They stopped by just once--and we had to wait a long time for that visit.
We all left with full and happy tummies though.
Absolutely love the Sunday brunch at Cygnus! The food is creative and wonderful (particularly the sushi and desserts), and the mimosas (as part of the brunch price) are a terrific starter. It is both relaxing and cheerful especially on a bright Sunday morning/afternoon in Grand Rapids. This is our second time at Cygnus on a Sunday and our group enjoyed every bite from the shrimp salad to the scallops to the crepe station. Fabulous! And a shout out to our waiter Alex who was attentive during the entire meal. Can't wait for the Easter brunch!
Great views of the city and good table spacing create a wonderful ambiance. Our server was not trained in opening and serving wine which was a bit off-putting but the food service was well paced and professional. The duck, beet salad, and mushroom soup were very good but the empanadas were bland fried dough. Wine list was OK and not too over priced. All in all a very good restaurant.
