Together we can customize your event using our unique spaces—perfect for large gatherings or small intimate groups—and a menu personally tailored to each guest’s needs.

The Vault

Tucked away beneath our main dining floor is the Vault. Exceptional in every way, it is a visually enticing space rich in design and not-so-subtle details. Home to Reserve’s wine cellar, it is the ideal setting for wine tastings or intimate cocktail parties.

Guests:Seated (up to 12)

Champagne Room & Lounge

The ultimate setting for a sensational anything. Lush and inviting, the Champagne Room & Lounge is spectacularly adaptable. Coupled with our exceptional menus and wine offerings, it does more than define your event. It elevates it.

Privacy: Semi-Private


Nestled on our mezzanine level, just up the stairs and to the left, is a space we call the Loft, which offers a semi-private, relaxed setting that encourages glass after glass of casual conversation. Weather permitting, the adjacent Patio offers the opportunity to expand your guest list and entertain al fresco.

Guests: Seated (up to 25, or 48 with the Patio) or Reception (up to 30, or 60 with the Patio)

Peter Marantette

General Manager & Sommelier

After leaving his home state to work in Chicago, Peter returned home to join Reserve's opening management team in July 2010. In the Windy City, he worked for Levy Restaurants at the acclaimed Bistro 110 as Beverage Manager. With a desire to broaden his knowledge of the world of wine, Peter immersed himself in both book and bottle, studying and tasting, absorbing all he could. The work paid off - in October 2010 he earned the Certified Sommelier title from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Peter's education is an evolving one, as he has broadened his knowledge base to include craft cocktails and beers, and he loves sharing his knowledge with guests at Reserve.

Bob Waterbury

Chef de Cuisine Bob Waterbury brings his modern, globally inspired cooking back to the Reserve kitchen, rejoining in summer 2017.  Before returning to Grand Rapids, Waterbury sought culinary insight around the country, notably at the celebrated Blackberry Farm (TN).  Over the years, he's cultivated deep relationships with area farmers and artisans, and uses those ingredients combined with passed down traditions and travels to find inspiration.

Ryan Davis

Sous Chef

Born & raised in Jackson, Michigan, Ryan began working in area restaurants as a high school student.  As he worked his way through the various kitchen stations, he realized his interest in the culinary arts was more than just a way to make some spending money and decided to pursue cooking as a career.  He relocated to western Michigan and there, began exploring different food cultures, learning the unique styles, ingredients and influences within the different culinary ethnicities.  That global influence, along with his focus on local and seasonal product, defines Davis' culinary philosophy. Davis lives in the Creston neighborhood of Grand Rapids and when not in the kitchen he is likely out exploring the area's many bicycle trails.
