 (Detroit)·Dined 7 days ago

Our server was excellent - very attentive. The food was “ok” - nothing special by any means - especially considering the price. Presentation was outstanding though. Will try again but will stick to the bar area which was very cozy and try more of the appetizers which looked very interesting. Perch was the size of pinkie finger, scallops very ordinary and walleye was again - just ok. Best of the evening - the weather must have kept people in so the noise level was low and visiting was very easy. They hesitated to seat us at first - they didn’t realize we had a reservation and said they were booked with reservations - - Half of the restaurant was empty all night so not sure where everyone was!!!!

My wife and I are foodies and very selective. We had the walleye & trout. Both were served at perfect temperature in a creative display, and with superb spices and sauces. We liked them enough to order a carryout of each along with the chicken breast, which was fantastic, even when reheated.

We were excited to try gravity based on the reviews on yelp. We spent approx $200 and it was just so-so service. We waited forever for any attention from our server. We felt like she was less than enthusiastic to wait on us. The food ranged from excellent to meh. The filet was excellent while the calamari was just ok. My husband and I both have served food before and for a higher end restaurant we couldn’t believe some of the jeans the servers were wearing. IF, and that’s a big if ... we ever go back again it will be for happy hour. We wil review our review then.

We had a lovely meal with friends. The sauteed perch is always a good option and two in our party had huge steaks that were excellent. As always, I wish that some of the entrees were on the lighter side (maybe not risotto with every dish?) and that the wine list was more interesting, especially when it comes to white wine. But, Gravity is a great choice - nice ambiance, good service and very good food.

After reading other reviews we decided to try it. Very disappointed. The menu is heavily fish and seafood. The nightly specials consisted of three more fish dishes and a variation on a steak already on the menu. There was one chicken dish and the description sounded delicious. However, it arrived dry and lacking the mozzarella cheese it was supposed to be stuffed with and had little flavor. The polenta it was served with looked like a hockey puck. The perch dinner was ok but small. Service was extremely slow. My dining partner's drink was not what he ordered. The price was very high for the experience.

Nice meal w friends. Was our first time there and everyone enjoyed their meal. We had gluten free and Atkins diet needs that we're easily accommodated. Like most places, drink water only or bring at least $100 with you if you enjoy wine😄

We had the scallops which were delicious. One of us had the special and the other the ones they always have on the menu. Each plate had 3 large sea scallops over rice with a declicious sauce for each. We would recommend this dish. It has never disappointed in all the times we have gone to Gravity
