Our first time there. Loved it! Will definitely come back!
Small, intimate setting with limited, but delicious menu. We loved the mussels in fennel sausage sauce & Vertical Caesar salad as our shared starters. My husband said his filet was the best he's ever had, and my salmon (fish of the day) was perfect! Staff was friendly, knowledgeable. Also, when I asked for a custom gin drink, our waitress wasn't sure of the availability, but the bartender came over to clarify and figured out exactly what I wanted. We loved that attention, friendliness, and care. Will definitely be back!
A lovely higher end experience. We sat at the bar -- the shorter end portion which turned out to be a quaint corner! Amazing dirty martinis, lamb and mind-blowing gouda grits (don't miss those!) The bartender/servers, Sarah and Theresa, were incredibly knowledgable and attentive. A higher price point for sure but well worth the investment. The Detroit Opera House parking garage will give you the nearest access. Lovely little haunt!
Amazing dinner and drinks. Please sit at the bar. The staff is outstanding. Trout toast, focaccia, WAGYU steak (out of this world) and dessert on the house with a few cocktails made this night one to remember. We will come back.
Server was amazing and very attentive. Food was delicious and not too expensive.
Had a wonderful evening my first time at Vertical celebrating my birthday! I made reservations for myself and 5 friends based on the great reviews. We were seated at the high top in the back bar area. At first, I felt like I was missing out on the action up front, but I actually enjoyed that it felt more private and cozy. I also preferred being away from the restroom which is oddly placed in the main dining area (my only critique). The brussel sprouts were perfectly cooked, and the mushroom risotto was to die for! Our waiter was knowledgeable and happily catered to our requests. I would definitely recommend this spot, and I will be visiting again soon:)
Enjoyed the food and service very much. It was our first time there and would go back again
This is truly a gem. I loved EVERYTHING about it!
The cocktails, scallops, salads, short ribs and steak was amazing. I will definitely be back.
Great place! They accommodated our large group on short notice! Great service!
Vertical is always the best. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is great. It is a wine forward restaurant with a very large selection and very knowledgeable staff. The service is great and it is one of my favorite if not my favorite restaurant in Detroit. I recently moved to California it was my first stop for dinner when visiting family when back in town. Anything here is great but the focaccia bread is fresh made and a must have. They also serve a really good wine called sweet kiss if your enjoy sweet reds, best part is many of the wines are also sold retail so you can take a bottle home.
We had an absolutely fabulous experience! Service was perfectly executed, as was the food & beverages! So accommodating and helpful. Can’t possibly recommend enough!
First time going. Outstanding place with a great vibe!
It was a great time!
My husband and I took family from out of town and it was stellar. Food was super per usual, wine selection was spot on and staff was very attentive.
Best food we have had downtown in a long time. We have been to Vertical a few times in the past, but this time surpassed all others. Everything was outstanding including service.
Beautiful decor, ambiance is incredible.
Wait staff very attentive and polite.
Manager came by to ask how everything was.
Great place for a wine lover
It was our first time here, the location was amazing and the food as well. Our service was nice to us at first but got kinda snippy half way through. We did not have many requests or anything so we were confused as to why she started being kinda mean. Everything else was perfect and I will for sure go back, just with a different waitress.
It was excellent
Food was exceptional!
Overall one of my favorites in Detroit. Great food in a special environment. Love it.
Outstanding service, probably best in Detroit. Plenty of selections for everyone
Wonderful experience, great staff and service. Highly recommend. Jay was our server and exceeded our expectations on every level. Would highly recommend. Loved the ambience, perfect for date night.
Each dish was artfully crafted and a full flavor experience. I think it would be hard to find a dish I didn't like here! It may appear to be pricey, but I was able to take my Mom out to dinner for under $150 with plenty of wine and dessert. We LOVED our meal and would return again for our next Music Hall night out!
Food was delicious and ambience was great
Hands down the best dining experience we’ve had in years! Innovative menu, intimate ambiance, knowledgeable, attentive waitstaff, and of course an unbelievable wine selection.
Wonderful restaurant possessing a nice combination of small-plate & entree selections, coupled with a superior wine list. Located in the heart of Detroit's Theatre/Entertainment district (Music Hall, Opera House, Fox Theatre, Ford Field, Comerica, LCA), "Vertical" provides a can't-miss dining and sipping option.
Amazing. The staff is wonderful and the food was ridiculously good!
Compliments to the Chef. Food was amazing
Went to celebrate my husband's birthday and loved everything that was set in front of us.
I appreciated all the special touches such as waitress explaining the menu in detail( and her taking photos for us)......the owner/ manager personally checking on us to see if we were enjoying our dining experience
Omg the food was AMAZING AND THE SERVICE just as good!
Went here for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a great time. Food and drinks were spectacular and the service was impressive. Definitely would recommend for a lovely night out!
Excellent dining experience, outstanding wine selection.
We decided to head to Vertical before a concert at the Fox. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The food was fantastic, the overall ambiance was relaxed chic. We sat at the bar and had a perfect pre-concert meal of shared appetizers, charcuterie and wine.
first time visitor - very plesantly surprised with the menu and the service
will definitely go back
Nice place maybe for wine but i was not impressed by the menu for the cost honestly, i have dinned in many restaurants nyc and chicago that it least are in line with the prices of the dishes they offer with creativity and flavor, as for this place it doesn’t meet the hype
Overall good experience. Nice ambiance. Convenient parking right behind the building that was fenced in. Limited menu but quality food. Ambience and service were best aspects.
