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!!

We went to Downtown Louie's before and after a historical tour we were taking in the Eastern market area. Both times, the service was impeccable, the servers were polite and attentive, and the food was very good. The ambience of the restaurant is very appealing and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. Bravo!

20% Gratuity is automatically included and not indicated on the menu. The food & service were great but not noticing this on my receipt I tipped on the tip. Matt (our server) was excellent but this makes me reluctant to return. I reviewed my bill for accuracy on the order and didn't catch this included in the total. Very disappointing.

We had a great server Nene. It was busy so we were patient waiting a little for drinks and food. Nothing too serious. Food was good and the atmosphere is very cool! The name makes you think it is a casual place but the decor is very nice! We like this place for good downtown dining! Our table of 4 had a smattering of everything; burger, whitefish, salmon! All good and the potatoes were nice and crispy! Just how I like them!

Friendly staff!
