Contemporary American
Chic yet approachable, historic while tastefully modern. The Apparatus Room bridges the old and the new, offering iconic New American cuisine by Chef Rece Hogerheide rooted in Midwestern ingredients, thoughtfully crafted cocktails, and esoteric wines. By blending a three-meal restaurant, elevated dinner service with signature touches, and a world class hotel bar, the Apparatus Room welcomes locals and travels alike to sip, stay, and enjoy one of Detroit’s signature restaurants. Our cocktail program is classically focused with inspiration drawn from the history of the building and the city itself. The ingredients may be familiar and the presentation simple and classic, though each cocktail has a deeper story to tell for those who have time to listen. Sommelier Liz Martinez showcases the diversity of both Old World & New World wines, and the regions are separated as such on the menu. Winemakers that take pride in sustainable, environmental practices are always on the top of our mind.

    It was a lovely experience overall! I would say I felt like the waitress was very pushy on ordering more options. I appreciate suggestions but after I have made my decision I’d like it to be accepted and then we can move on. The food was delicious that we ordered! I was especially surprised by the risOATo. It was very tasty.

    The atmosphere was great for a sofisticated gathering or a nice dinner date. It was very loud and I could hardly hear my husband who sat across the table from me. There was a conference downtown so maybe that was why? The service was amazing! Our waiter was very kind and gave my husband an extra dessert dish for his birthday. We chose the chefs choice option. The food was well made and mostly delicious besides some personal dislikes unrelated to how anything was prepared. I suggest anyone give it a chance and make sure you remember its an expensive restaurant. Two thumbs up.
