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.

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.
