Cygnus 27 Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Cygnus 27 before for their cocktails, this was out first dining experience there. It was absolutely amazing. I made reservations for my girlfriends birthday and had put in a special request for a lovely window table overlooking the city skyline and river...they accommodated. I also included a small list of allergies my girlfriend has...once again they made it a point of informing the chef and we were accommodated. She had the striped bass which she absolutely loved...i had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly. The server was very attentive. I ordered a bottle of champagne for the evening...our glasses only became empty when the bottle was gone...overall we will be back and recommend Cygnus 27 with the highest regards.
We had a reservation and as we got there ordered our drinks salad came right away but our bread did not. After our salad we waited 45 minutes for our main course. Bread finally came and we ended up eating it all since we were hungry. Wine was done and we asked what was taking so long since everyone around us who came later had already eaten their meal. It finally comes. It's delicious but the service was terrible. It's one of our favorites but not going back for awhile. There are way to many excellent restuarant that I won't feel ignored at.
Went for restaurant week and made reservations online thru open table. Requested a river view and it was great. Excellent waitress.
Disappointed in the beet pasta. First few bites were good but then tasted gummy. Other meals at the table were excellent as well as the appetizer and dessert.
Go! You will have a wonderful time. They have an above average happy hour so we had drinks at the bar before dinner. Mitch was our waiter and he took really good care of us. He was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and fun.
Dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. Abigail was our server and did an excellent job. The attention to detail is impressive.
On the plus side, our server was very good. She managed to engage us in conversation, and was efficient and welcoming.
The ambiance is pretentious, but not so special. I found their take on a rock garden to be a comical failure.
The food - which should be the centerpiece of a dining experience - was not up to par. While still a "good value" during Restaurant week in Grand Rapids, I can't recommend it to anyone. My companion's main course was very disappointing.
It was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. Everything was delicious. Portion sizes are a little smaller but we left feeling full rather than over-stuffed, so I'd count that as a plus. The service was excellent, attentive but not too much so. The view of the city from the 27th floor is stunning.
We went here for the first time for my wife's birthday and were very impressed. I let them know in my reservation request that it was her birthday. They gave us the table with probably the best view and even brought her some chocolates after dinner for her birthday. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We had several tapas and were happy with every one of them. I would highly recommend this to anyone for happy hour drinks or a special date!
Decided to check this place out for restaurant week. From the moment we walked in we knew we had made the right choice. From the friendly staff to the beautiful view of the city, everything was wonderful. The server was very helpful with all of our questions from the food to the wine. Top notch dining. We will definitely return.
Great service and food. It would have been nice if we were told where to park. The hostess said we could have had parking validated if we parked in the right spot. Since they bothered to call me to confirm the reservation the day before, they could have bothered to tell me at this time. The hostess apologized and said she was sorry and that this happens a lot.
Beyond that, everything was great. The server was very friendly and knew the menu well. She made great suggestions and was very friendly.
The food was amazing! (Personally not a huge fan of the beetroot noodles-but I'm sure someone would love them!) But more than the food, the view was to die for! Being on top of the city, able to look out across Grand Rapids was breathtaking. Would definitely recommend checking it out!
Cygnus 27 was our first experience for Restaurant Week Grand Rapids and we were not disappointed! First, the view is awesome. As a local, it renews your perspective on the beautiful area you live in (and I am NOT a fan of cities!) and we enjoyed soaking in as much of the view as we could. As our menu was from their special restaurant week choices, they couldn't have done a better job showcasing what they have to offer. And our waitress??? LOVED HER!!!! From the very first moment, she was attentive and informative and so so so friendly. She explained to us how restaurant week worked (we did have questions) and was such a big part of our experience. My husband jokingly made a comment about so much silverware, he didn't know where to start and she didn't even bat an eye and kindly told us how to work through them. We already knew but were so impressed she didn't talk down to us or find us annoying, she just wanted to make sure we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We never felt rushed, our courses were appropriately timed, our drinks remained full, the manager checked in, our meal was outstanding, our waitress was the best...we will return!!!!!!
We weren't staying in the hotel, so we had to ask lobby staff to turn on elevator access to the 27th floor. Once past that, we had a delightful visit and would love to return.
The reception staff of Ruth and Stephanie were solicitous and thoughtful. The manager was a treat to talk to. Our waiter, Danny, was knowledgeable and made good suggestions. I'd ask for him next time.
The octopus appetizer is larger and more delicious than almost every restaurant anywhere. The salad was fresh and generous. The local produce (it was summer) was superior, especially the purple potatoes. The kitchen clearly takes the preparation seriously and presentation was excellent.
The room itself can use some freshening but more importantly, the seating is comfortable. Overall, an excellent choice for dinner with a nice view from the 27th floor.
I took my girlfriend on a nice date to Cygnus27 and we loved our time. Our server Danny was great and really new what he was doing and what the meal contained. We are looking forward to coming back. The food was great and the chocolate sphere dessert was a great way to end the night.
About a year ago we had an unpleasant dining experience at Cygnus. We were placed at a wobbly round table and the water glasses were very long stemmed. Unfortunately one small movement caused the goblets to fall and spill water all over my wife. However the staff reacted very well and the table was removed. There was an item on the online menu that I was looking forward to but was not available that night. Since we are seafood lovers we ordered fish that evening but it was very dry. We decided to try Cygnus again and this time it was a very pleasant dining experience. We will be back.
My husband and I have been looking forward to our reservation at Cygnus 27 for several months. We had heard about it from our friends and were looking forward to celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary there. What a wonderful experience we had! From the delicious meal to the warm and friendly service. It was an evening to remember! We highly recommend Cygnus 27 in Grand Rapids, MI.
