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.

    We had a wonderful lunch. The food and the service were excellent. Best of all, everyone, from the host, the cooks, the bartenders, and our waitress all seemed to enjoy working there making for a very nice atmosphere. We will be back.

    We continue to have a wonderful dining experience. The food is always very good but the service, the staff who wait on us, make our experience. Hats off to them for the attention, helpfulness, and friendliness !

    It was a great dining experience! We will certainly return. I recommend the “at the table” 7 course menu experience!

    Lovely ambiance, interesting cocktails, food was delicious- the 14 year sourdough was amazing. Bucatini with crab was also very good. I’d recommend it- go with friends to share dishes and sample everything!

    Some items on the “bar menu” should be on the main menu! Specifically the burger it was delicious. It gives a nice variety.

    Always incredible, never fail, friendly, and always very accommodating to different diets. Such patient people and the atmosphere is alway giving the best energy. Been many times for various reasons and have always found myself coming back over and over again. Bravo to the management and staff to keep this fine place in awesome running order. Also great social!

    Went for an early Mother’s Day breakfast. Beautiful design! Lovely and attentive staff. Food was good, but not what stood out to me!

    We went for brunch and the food was great - some good healthier options. My dad says the waffle was the best he’s ever had, so some good yummy options too! Our server Desiree was wonderful and attentive!
