Charging gratuity for a party of 2 and not telling the guests is a bit extreme. We normally tip more than 18%. This policy caused the server to lose. The policy of charging $50 per person for any changes to reservations needs to go too. Food and service was good, but we will not be going back unless there are some changes.

My sister’s 40th birthday. Waiter Noah was amazing ! The deviled crab balls for desert did not have too much flavor. It was better with the mustard sauce that was on the plate but over all lacked flavor.

We ordered the Barramundi for 1 entree and it was beyond amazing !

2nd entree was Spice Ahi Tuna. Overall it was good but again lacked flavor in the spice. It sat on top of a bed of spinach and olives and all you tasted was the olives. I am not a huge olive person, so it was too much for me personally.

Great restaurant and great staff. Will go back again. Try some different entrees

We were seated so close to two other parties. No social distancing. Tip was automatically added to the bill regardless of how the waitress was.

Waitress was amazing and super attentive and very sweet. We asked to sit by the window from the hostess. She was not very friendly so we sat and ate dinner in 2nd row with 5 open tables along the window. Besides that it was good lobster tails were awesome.

The food was good for the most part with the exception of the sour mashed potatoes with my lobster. My server was very professional and was apologetic for the timely orders. I would definitely visit again to give it a second chance.

We have dined at Joe Muer many times in the past and have had great experiences, however, this most recent trip was anything but great. Our waiter did not come to our table until 20 minutes after sitting down. From there we ordered drinks which took another 25 minutes to get and then we received wilted soggy salads another 25 minutes after ordering. Our dinner took almost an hour to come out after we had put our order in. The service did not match the price tag of the food on the menu. We have never had such slow service at such a nice restaurant and we are bummed because we used to truly enjoy this place.

Con - The dinner service was not good. My entrée arrived about 3 mins after I received my salad. That should be a huge no no for a restaurant of this caliber. Felt very rushed. Took waayyyyy (and I mean way) too long to receive our first drink order. The waiter, while attentive, seemed very arrogant.
Pro - The food was very, very good and it helped smooth our very special birthday celebration.

The entire experience was excellent from the beginning to the end. The bar staff was very attentive and had excellent presence; the drinks proved to be in sync. The waitress was knowledgeable and took good care of our table. The food didn't take long to arrive from ordering to being served; the presentation was very nice, and it was good. The manager also checked on us; this capped the experience. We will definitely be returning.

Celebrating a big anniversary and made that known when making the reservation. We were given a table near the exit and bathrooms. When we asked for a different table we were denied. That took away from the overall experience. Loved Eric the bartender though!

The food was delicious - my husband had the filet with shrimp. The filet was super- tender and flavorful. He had sides of mashed potatoes. The green beans were good but the mashed potatoes were mediocre - very creamy but not that flavorful and far too salty. I had the special - New Zealand ? Halibut filet over a crab cake with veggies. It was well- prepared and excellent in taste and presentation. We had the seared scallops and crab balls apps which were both good. We had a moderately- priced wine which was also very good. Service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive. One of the more expensive meals we have eaten but worth it.

Great experience overall including the food and service. Prices are a bit high for Detroit. Also took an unusually long time between “checking in” at our reservation time and being seating when the restaurant was far from full at the time.

Food (grouper) was delicious, cooked just right.
Disappointed that Muers didn't have Tullamore DEW.
Liked the idea that waiter pointed out that the gratuity had already been added in to the bill.

Delicious seafood cooked to perfection, however over priced. That said, the wine selection and view make the price worth it. The mixed drinks are artfully crafted and playfully named. I was a bit discouraged by the dessert choices as it compares to the variety of dinner items. No gluten free specific choices. Though, most broiled baked and raw choices were naturally gluten free.
