Great for Bachelor Parties or Wedding Receptions

If you want a fine dining experience whether it be a night on the town or a nice event for bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, or even a board meeting; here is a list of Grand Rapids, Michigan three best restaurants that will fit any of your dining needs. They not only have great food but an ambiance that matches the great taste.

Leo's Is Awarded the Grand Rapids Magazine Dining Award

Leo's

I had dinner at this place with my business partners. We all were very impressed by the entire experience. It was absolutely delicious, very sophisticated, with great ambiance. Every detail in the decor is well thought out, from the table cloths to the bathrooms. They also have a nice bar area for the more casual diner.

Their specialty is seafood, and they present it very elegantly. Their prices range anywhere from 10 dollars a plate to 30. For those who do not like seafood, they do have a land and pasta menu that you can choose from that includes New York strip and shrimp fettuccine verde.

Wine Event at Mangiamo

Mangiamo Italian Restaurant

Mangiamo has a high class feel, but each plate only costs 20 to 40 dollars! It was originally built as a mansion, but was transformed into an elegant restaurant. Their menu is filled with delicious Italian style foods. As you peruse the menu, you are able to dine on tasty bread, which you can dip into an olive oil base mix with your choice of three delicious flavorings. This delicious appetizer is very addictive.

Mangiamo was rated in the top forty restaurants to eat at in Grand Rapids, Michigan according to tripadvisor.com! They also serve wedding receptions in one of their few rooms. They have a brilliantly decorated gated yard, as well as beautifully designed banquet rooms. Located at 1033 Lake Drive SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49506.

Road Tripping to the "Bob"

The Bob

The atmosphere is by far the best part of the Bob. It has four floors. The main floor guides you to an upscale feel where you can eat at their steakhouse with a fine dining feel! This floor is dedicated for having a good time. Further in, past the bar, you can dance with your friends, get a drink, and enjoy your time. If you are looking for a quieter place where you can talk, you can venture downstairs to the lower level, also known as the monkey bar. Don't be turned off by it's crazy name, it is an Asian inspired private seating area, which is set up reminiscent of a giant coffee shop with sofas and comfortable chairs.

On the third floor, known as Bobarino's, is a great place to eat while watching live entertainment! They choose all kind of live entertainment from jazz, retro, country among many others, where you can listen to outdoors. In the dining room they have all the best sporting events on their large plasma televisions! The fourth floor has a great stage where they often have great shows such as comedians and other great acts! Although it is rated #55 on tripadvisor.com, it is by far a great place with a great array of entertainment, as well as good food!

      Garnetbird, I wish I could go to Cali and eat, then I could spend time with some of my favorite people. I think dinner is only truly good with good friends. :)

      Is T.J. Benedict's still around in Grand Rapids? We used to love to eat there. The Mahi-Mahi and the Hazelnut coffee were what kept bringing us back.
