“Great for a special event!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

Beautiful scenery, especially with a table for two with a view. Expensive, artfully prepared dishes served with the utmost of care to the customer. We shared the New York Strip steak and the lamb chops. The steak was wonderful. The best part of the experience was an inventive appetizer which was a pork dish with crepe like shells to wrap it in. We had wonderful, thought filled service and a toast with chocolate fondue on the house for our special occasion.

“Great view”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

This restaurant with walls of glass, at the top of the Amway Grand Hotel, has a wonderful view of the city. It happens that the accents are in red which made it fitting with the Christmas decorations in the hotel and restaurant. The atmosphere is elegant and the service is excellent. Our appetizers were not memorable, but the entrees took it up a notch. It is worth eating here just for the view and experience.

“Unique menu options cooked deliciously, with a fantastic city view”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

My husband and I challenge ourselves to find the most creative food offerings in Grand Rapids for our monthly date nights. If you like the unique food options at six.one.six or Bar Divani, you will appreciate the menu at Cygnus. Add to that the fantastic view of the city (especially fun during Art Prize at sunset!) and this was the perfect date night spot. We can't believe we haven't tried it yet .. For some reason we thought it was just another steakhouse but were pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong. Best taste of the night were the tempura scallops. We were able to find enough variety and flavor enticements in the small plates to make a meal of them. Great cocktail options too. Will definitely return soon!

“Amazing View and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

We met friends for drinks and appetizers here, and was blown away by the view. What a geat birds-eye view of Grand Rapids!

I was also taken back by the ultra modern decor and finishing touches. I was impressed that a place like this exists in Grand Rapids!

Our wait staff was excellent, and our bartender was great.

The food and cocktail choices were fun too. They had a nice variety of appetizers to choose from, and the selections we tried were outstanding. I'd recommend the scallops and calamari.

I can't wait to go back, this time for dinner.

“excellent all-around experience”
Reviewed 17 August 2011

The view, the service (2 waitstaff per table-1 of whom was a single malt scotch expert) and the food all were delightful. The prices were not unexpected given the experience.
