Right next to our hotel, we decided to give it a go. We ordered a bottle of bubbly and a charcuterie plate (lots of choices and reasonably priced). The pate was amazing! And, the service was outstanding.

We went here with high expectations, but try as we might, we just couldn’t get past “Eh.” Everything, from appetizers all the way through desserts, was just ok. They lacked the ingredients to make a relatively simple and well-known mixed drink. (Yes, wine is their...More

I have eaten here several times and do make it a habit to visit The Reserve. They have one of the best wine lists in Grand Rapids. The Charcuterie selection is incredible. The meats include Iberico ham for an up charge, but well worth it....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.
