Two out of four entrees not so good. I’d skip the whitefish and lamb. Salmon and filet were fine.

The food was terrible. The description stated formal attire. There were people in jeans and sweatshirts. Not worth the cost

This was not a good experience. I was in town with my boyfriend and his parents. Got reservations here before the Bill Bur show. The service was not great. The food took a long time. The charcuterie board was $40 and looked like a 10 year old put it together. It was not worth the price at all. I got the Bolognese and it was watered down spaghetti sauce with no flavor. Everyone else in my group said their dishes also had no flavor. Would not recommend this spot.

There was a magician going table to table trying to solicit money from people for card tricks - not a fan of being bothered while I’m out to dinner.

The horrible service destroyed whatever ambiance or good this place may have had. This horrible experience continued even after I politely reminded my server that we had a show to see. We just kept getting ignored. And to top it off, they added an automatic 20%gratuity? Come on, man. I normally tip 20% but not for crap service.

The best casual dining in downtown Detroit. Excellent chefs. Food is fresh and well prepared. Always exquisite daily soup. Not cheap but worth every penny and some!

This is an easy place to go when other restaurants are booked. The food is not particularly exciting; the menu isn’t particularly creative. It’s also a bit expensive for the quality of food.

It might be a better place to meet with friends for drinks.

Very nice setting. In the heart of downtown Detroit. The service was very friendly, even with staff shortage due to the coronovirus. Service was a little slow, but expected, given the situation.
Food was outstanding.

I would recommend it to friends.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the restaurant looked and felt. We were a group of seven looking for a meal before a Tiger ballgame and I couldn't have been happier with our choice of restaurant. The service was excellent and the food exceptional! The ambiance was superb too!!
