Too expensive , got meat and cheese tray and it was nasty. Plus- you can try lots of wine.. Minus- they literally give you a swallow when you do a flight of wines. Went once as did my coworkers- won't go back . We spent our budget and were hungry and disappointed

Went downtown for a Christmas party upstairs from the bar this weekend. Before I had my coat off, the waiter had a glass of wine in my hand. There are a number of small rooms upstairs, but it is all open to the Bar downstairs, so it was noisy. Liked that waiters walked around with hors d'oeuvres, similar to a... More

Service can be a bit slow, but the food is excellent. Top rated. The wine is always served well. The cheese options are amazing. Ecotour36

The service was good but we were a larger group and were seated at the bar height table in the middle of the restaurant. It is a nice restaurant but the appetizers were better than the entrees. The menu is limited.

The reserve seems to always deliver. It's not inexpensive but the selection and service make us want to return

Picked the restaurant based on the menu listed on its website. The menu we were given had a much smaller selection to chose from. We chose the 5 course dinner; which was delicious but each dish was dropped off at our table without an explanation as to what it was. You don't get to pick. We had to ask what... More

We were looking to grab a drink before the international wine beer and food festival down the street. The wine selection was large, unique, and may have been a bit confusing to someone who is not a frequent wine consumer (or receives no direction, as in our case). We sat at the bar for a few minutes and pulled a... More

Nothing beats the feast to the senses that the Reserve Wine and Food in GR serves. From the L. Mawby bubbly which paired well with the tortelli...oooh oooh oohmm... the flavors exploded in the mouth. Seven of Hearts Pinot Noir paired well with the green collards salad and shark fin dinner. Ask for degree of intensity of spiceness when ordering... More

We stayed at the Amway Grand and decided on stopping in to the Reserve for a quick bit as it directly across the street from the hotel. My wife had a glass of Riesling which we found a little on the pricey side at $18 per glass and listed at $72 a bottle which is about average for the Reserve... More

My wife and I stopped in Reserve during ArtPrize looking to get away from the crowds and rain. I'd been to Reserve several times before and have always been very satisfied with their lunch menu. This visit was no different. The downstairs seating is always a little louder than upstairs, but there isn't a seat where you can't have a... More

Reserve is proud to present Grand Rapids with our homage to Wine, Pork, Cheese and even more wine! Reserve has developed a network of purveyors to supply hand-selected, seasonal produce, pork, Michigan raised lamb, beef and fish to anchor a locally driven rustic yet refined menu of simple, eclectic fare. Our goal at Reserve is to source the best possible product as close to home as possible. Our Charcuterie bar will serve up local and international cheeses and meats along with Reserve exclusives, house made sausages, terrines, and pates. The extensive international wine list was developed by certified sommelier, Peter Marantette. The list features 102 wines by the glass and a bottle list of nearly 300 selections. Artisan cocktails and a focused craft beer list round out a unique dining experience here at Reserve.
