Great staff, the bar was packed with people from a wedding reception. The staff maintained their bearing and insured all were attended to.

Bartender is super friendly! I am here right now! He made a variation of a Moscow Mule. Super good. Not very pricey. Casual. Not loud. Near so many cool downtown venues. Hotel bar. Really like it.

We were staying at Cityflatshotel in Grand Rapids and stopped in the lounge for happy hour before heading out for the evening. The bartender came across as somewhat flip and uninterested as if he couldn't be bothered to do his job! Although it was happy hour, he could not find a happy hour menu; then he stated is was being... More

Not very busy and very friendly staff. Food was better than average. Nice place for a business lunch. Try the new Granwich entry.

We have visited this restaurant on our annual trips to GR and have always had a good experience. This year we went for dinner on two nights and the food was excellent (with one salad only being average) as was the service. The Baked Feta appetizer is wonderful! Likewise, the hamburgers were great. Definitely worth a return trip.

We waited 50 minutes and our food never came. (there was just us and another table in there, who also had to wait a long time). I had to go up to the bar to ask to have our water glass refilled. The service sucked. So we walked out and went to Downtown Market to grab a sandwich to take... More

I looked the Happy Hour up online before my visit. I was happy to see that the drinks were different speciality drinks at a great price. I enjoyed the drink I had so much I asked the bartender for the recipe and he obliged. My co-worker was not happy with her appetizer and she had no problem changing it. I... More

I used to enjoy dining at City Sen restaurant at City Flats Hotel, but it's gone downhill. The restaurant wasn't busy, but somehow the kitchen got my order wrong and it ended up taking 45 minutes to be served a grilled cheese sandwich. The one waitress that was working was apologetic and offered a complimentary beverage, which I declined because... More

I always enjoy eating here. The food and service are both always good and the prices are pretty great too. We attended their Mother's Day brunch a couple of years ago. The setting the ballroom was beautiful - I had no idea it was even there! The food was great (although I would have enjoyed a better dessert assortment).
