A restaurant embracing the history of Detroit's industrial reach. The cinder block building that housed neighborhood fare for decades has received new life to further the tradition of hand-made, thought-out food and beverage.
Expect personal service, handwritten menus, and a fresh, comfortable atmosphere. Food and beverage selections rotate with the seasons and availability of local farm products, with no set menu. Everything is handmade from scratch, with fresh, ethical ingredients from Chef Rigato’s extensive network of farms, butchers and foragers.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. I don't love how expensive the bill is, however, totally think every penny is worth it.
Fantastic dining experience! Very knowledgeable, engaging and energetic staff. The decor was fun and eclectic. And the food was divine. We did the tasting menu which was fantastic. Bravo, Chef Rigato!
Wonderful!! I’ve been taken out here for my birthday and took my son and his fiancée here for an engagement dinner. Both times we had the tasting menu and it was truly outstanding.
Awesome restaurant for our 23rd anniversary, great place for a special occasion!
This is the best restaurant in Michigan- hands down. The tasting menu and beverage pairings is the best $100 you will spend in a restaurant anywhere!
I had high expectations based on a few recommendations, but the entire experience was very average. The four dishes we had were all so-so. Given some of the similar options in the area, I’m not in a hurry to try Mabel Gray again.
Simply one of the Best culinary experiences in the Detroit area.
The tasting menu and wine pairing exceeded my expectations. The dishes were all equally delicious and it was absolutely worth the price. Can't wait to return!
Food was phenomenal. Service was excellent, servers were knowledgeable and very helpful. I loved the uniqueness of everything. Definitely a one of a kind type of place.
Have eaten at a lot of exceptional restaurants, and this was easily a top 5 all time meal. To exceed the already very high expectations (given the near-impossibility of getting a prime time Saturday reservation) was no easy task, and yet we were blown away by the food and service.
We did the tasting menu with wine pairing (strongly recomended). Hard to say if the pumpkin soup or scallop was our favorite course... the lamb dumpling would be an honorable mention also if you include the wine pairing. Our server was phenomenal, and his supporting cast was great too. Super relaxed and unfussy atmosphere... its all about enjoying the food and trying some new and unexpected things.
Will absolutely be back!
Second time here and it was better than the first. Awesome food and service!
Amazing food.... I was eating low carb and ask for a steak and he said it’s not on the menu but I have a $100 wagu steak that takes 45 min to souvey and sear.... it’s was the best steak I’ve ever had and worth every penny
Fun and casual... yet a meal thzat excites the taste buds. We had the tasting menu and nothing disappointed. Highly recommend.
couldn't have asked for anything more. It was perfect.
We went for our 23rd anniversary and had an amazing time. We both got the tasting menu and my husband also got the drink pairing package. Phenomenal doesn’t even begin to explain the experience.
We celebrated our second anniversary in a row here. We've done tasting menu's at the best restaurants in NYC and Mabel Grey is right up there with the best food money can buy. And at a totally reasonable price for the level of quality and experience. I cannot say enough about this great place.
A great night out for a birthday. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the particular food pairs of the menu offerings for that day.
Had their tasting menu and it was, perhaps, the best meal I have ever had
My wife and I had what may be the best restaurant meal of our lives at Mabel Gray. We had the tasting menu with the wine/cider pairings and loved every creative course. It is clearly not only the best restaurant in metro Detroit, but also in the country.
The service was the best part!! The food was so delicious but there was too much noise.
Fantastic meal and service.
We loved our experience!! The food and drinks were amazing! Max was our waiter. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be going back!! Thank you so much!
The server was amazing! He knew everything that was being served and recommended dishes to try. Top notch!
Love the innovative foods! Great knowledgeable servers! Fun and unique atmosphere
This place never disappoints! The food is always creative and flavorful. I could eat here everyday!
We had never gone because it is so hard to get reservations... and now we know why. Fantastic service and tasting menu, which apparently changes daily. Great atmosphere!! Loved this place and would love to eat there monthly, if we can...
As always the food & service were EXCELLENT!!! But the noise level is very high!!
Very hard to have conversation with your party.
Our server was incredible! Very knowledgable of menu and made each of us a unique drink once we told him what we normally like / drink. I can'r remember his name but he had a skull hand pin with the finger sticking up haha. He was the best part of our experience for sure!
Brock was awesome. Food was incredible. Killer experience.
Blow for blow as good as if not better than anywhere else in Detroit metro food-wise. The separator here is the paired wine menu. The sommelier did an unbelievable job with choosing wine pairings, greatly enhancing all of the food, the wine itself, and the experience. Just a wonderful time and we'll be back for sure.
Very friendly, trendy vibe. Very tight spacing. Our small table for two was so close to the wall, I had to move the table and chair over in order to use my right arm and hand for eating. Hubby had the tasting menu and I ordered a la carte. Every plate looked beautiful and was presented with flair; however, every dish was either very spicy or very rich. Two of the dishes were spicy to the extent of being virtually inedible and we are from Louisiana and love spicy food. I understand that the object is a memorable meal, but it is often better to let the food not the seasonings shine. All in all, rather disappointing, considering our bill was over $250.00 for two,
Tasting menu, wine pairing, and service were outstanding as always!
Great food, good service, great time
Hard to get into but worth it! Will absolutely come back! Food was incredible and the staff was super attentive!
An amazing evening enjoying the tasting menu. All the staff are extremely knowledgeable and this restaurant knows how to set the bar. The food was exceptional and we would come back monthly.
VERY GOOD. EATEN HERE MANY TIMES, ALMOST ALWAYS GET TASTING MENU. THIS PAST TIME WAS VERY GOOD, BUT MANY PRIORS WERE AMAZING. BROCK IS SUPERB ADVISOR/WAIT STAFF
I wish there was a word to describe the dining experience at Mable Gray - outstanding does not cut it. This establishment is one of those rare ones that offers the highest level of food, service, wine/drinks, and atmosphere. I would highly recommend the tasting menu with the drink pairing. The service went out of their way to make my dinner extra special (I was asking a lot of questions about the wines specifically).
We went to celebrate our son's birthday. The food and service (Brock) were outstanding. However, the energetic athomesphere made a quiet conversation difficult. Two of us ordered the tasting menu and two did not. The timing of the meal is such that you would be advised to ALL order ala carte or from the tasting menu. My son's girlfriend's dish came out first and she sat for three hours with out anything in front of her. Likewise, my husband's steak came out towards the end and he sat for a while without any food. Then , when it did come out it was too large for one person. The girlfriend, who is vegetarian, had finished her meal by this time. The wine pairing with the meal was not to our liking. The food was great and so was the service; however, the timing was disappointing.
Unique menu changes frequently. Attentive, knowledgeable, staff. Service is well paced. Food is incredible!
