    Our server was literally the best we have had there. I can’t remember his name at the moment but he is originally from Toronto! He made the experience so so good! And our buzzer/water service was so wonderful too! He always made sure to check if there was anything we needed when refilling is or clearing plates.

    Ambiance is beautiful, food is good however not many options. They can custom your order but it's just real basic. I think they need to upgrade and they don't offer Maine lobstertail which is disappointing. They offer South African lobster tail and that's a acquired taste. It's very bitter and Maine is better. Lastly they don't have a strict dress code as they say. Pretty much you can wear any attire as long as it's not to revealing and a jogging suit. I think this restaurant needs to upgrade the menu for sure. Condense the drink menu and actually do a dessert menu. They have no pictures on the menu which is another problem for me and the waitress the one I had wasn't knowledgeable as she should have been with the menu. The price is a decent price for what you get or for it to be a upscale restaurant.

    Our server, Bridgette,was phenomenal. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly. The Brussel sprouts and slaw are divine! My Barramundi dish was exquisite. Everyone enjoyed their food. Dessert was top notch. Definitely would recommend Joe Muer to friends and family. All staff we came in contact with were very happy and helpful. The view is amazing, easy parking and convenient to stroll the riverfront before or after dinner.

    An excellent choice for seafood in Detroit, with wonderful views of the lake/river. My only complaint is that the grilled swordfish I had seemed really dry. However, our scallops appetizer was great, and my wife loved her sampler of clams, shrimp and scallops. The guy at the piano bar, Joel I think, was amazing!

    We have been coming for our Anniv. for 12 yrs. Always enjoying sitting in area near piano & windows as its special & romantic for us. We asked for that area in our res. & when we arrived. There were 4 empty tables in that area & the host refused & said they were reserved. He then seated someone who came after us there. You also ALWAYS say you cant reserve specific tables do which one is it? I ordered the special which was halibut w/crabcake & a scallop. The chef FORGOT the SCALLOP😫which the waiter told us after I asked & was almost done. For the way you charge this is UNACCEPTABLE!! It was a HORRIBLE experience that effected our entire celebration. The host was RUDE & disrespectful. We will not be returning nor will our friends & family.

    Had a window table, which gave us a great view of the river, boat traffic, and people on the river walk out front. Make sure you request that, even if you have to wait for a later table. Service was exceptional - attentive staff with excellent recommendations from the menu. They came just when you needed them, and were otherwise out of sight. And the food? Out of this world. Top shelf in every sense. We had and appetizer, the soup flight, a salad (split) two entrees, and desert- and all were five star quality, and plenty of it. We took food and deserts home, we’re more than stuffed, and with drinks and a 20% gratuity added the bill was still only $200. I’d go back tomorrow if we could get away with it. But we definitely will go back.
