Over-rated: average food, expensive for what you get, nothing outstanding. Polite but only average service. Not the place for a quiet dinner: once the piano player started, the noise level rose exponentially to overcome the music, making conversation challenging. Their new policy is to add a mandatory 20% "service/gratuity" charge to all parties, even for 1 or 2 guests (not advertised), regardless of service...at least the river view, if you are fortunate to get a window seating, is nice

Excellent food, service and ambience. The host that checked is in, checked our coats and eventually show us to our table, was fabulous. The other host not as friendly when we asked about purchasing gift cards. Rather than being eager to take our money, as you would expect, she said in a sharp tone, I will be with you later and proceeded to write in her notebook (customer service 101, the notebook could have waited).

We had great service from Victoria. I've enjoyed the staple Joe Muir starters of white bean salad, and bread and butter and salmon pate; since the old restaurant on Gratiot was in business. They have kept the Muir tradition alive. It's a special dinner atmosphere!!

It was my birthday. Very good night. The only thing is I put a $350 deposit down for 10 people and I had to wait until majority, 6, ppl got there. I feel like if I put up my deposit for 10 and if I want a table for 1 I should be seated. But it was ok.

We had a wonderful evening, despite one of our guests needing to leave unexpectedly for the hospital. CJ was great. The only misstep was being told when they sat us that we would each be receiving a free dessert as the table was not ready (5 place settings instead of 6). We were told this by both our server and the manager. My son did receive a free dessert as we were celebrating his birthday, but unfortunately the rest of us were charged for our desserts. We did not say anything as it was upsetting that our guest had to leave and we had just wanted to leave by the end of the meal.

Great location right on the river with a view. Food is top shelf and service to match. You can’t do better for a 5 star Dining experience downtown that Joe Muers seafood and steak. But be warned your wallet will need to be full. Sometimes though it’s worth it- and this is one place to splurge.

There was a Legit Screw in my Food, Appalled, a actual piece of metal in my steak. I am a Regular Customer who spends much money here on a frequent basis and to have this happen to me at Joe Muers I have absolutely 0 words for it I honestly think they have lost a Good Paying Regular Customer after this one and it’s truly sad because I liked that place a lot for their quality and service but after last night I have 0 words for what happened I do know I will likely not be back unfortunately.

The worst service I have had in metro Detroit EVER. It took nearly an hour for appetizers to come out, of which the hot appetizer was COLD. Oysters which take minutes to shuck came out after the HOT appetizer, an hour+ in. Staffing was not an issue as there were numerous staff standing around doing who knows? Service was the issue, or lack there of.

Lobster bisque was not as good as it once was. Whitefish seemed undercooked. Lots of scales and bones.
Seduce was phenomenal as was the view.

Our table could not be any worse. Up aginst the wall .The table of ladies next to us had thier walkers parked at one end of the table ,next to the bucket which held the water bottles.Food was so-so and Floor manager (? )came over twice to ask us if everything was allright? We asked to be moved and was told no other tables were available. No one was ever seated at the open tables while we dined. Istared at an empty coffee cup most of my meal

It was tremendously overpriced for the quality of food. I don't mind paying the price but I want top quality food in taste & appearance for that price. It was either. Service was excellent. It is a beautiful restaurant.
