Ordered blue cheese nachos and had to ask, where is the blue cheese? They brought blue cheese after I complained, but who orders blue cheese nachos who does not like blue cheese? Note there is chicken on the blue cheese nachos. I ask why? Salmon was only ok. Rice, roasted red peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, only ok. Wine was ok. Ok... More

I can't believe some of the negative reviews I've read on here about Downtown Main. Clearly some don't know how to write a review based on a legitimately negative experience (providing helpful, honest input for improvement) and just writing rubbish that's not even pertinent to the point of writing a review in the first place. I've met friends here for... More

Went here with four couples for dinner after the homecoming parade. Food was very good. Service was good but not great.

Rude bartenders, slow service, over priced drinks.given this place more than one try. Too many great restaurants in downtown Brighton. No need to visit here again.

My friends and I really enjoy this restaurant. Upscale casual, with good food and great martinis. Staff have always been pleasant, and the service is good. They also hold a once a month Ladies Night, which is lots of fun for a girls night out. They teach you how to make 5 different martinis (different variety each month), while serving... More

Stopped in for Martini's! It is a great place to relax with friends while having a couple of drinks. They have table seating and couches which was a wonderful to kick back and talk.

Love the casual atmosphere, great meeting place with friends. Food is high quality and there is a martini to fit everyone's taste. Try the Martini sampler and share.

I'm sad to see bad reviews for this restaurant as my girlfriends and I just love to meet here for martini's and tapas when we can! The staff isn't always the greatest but I can usually rectify any qualms we may have when the manager makes the rounds, which they've done everytime I've gone.

We live in the area and dine out several times a month. This was our first (and last) visit to this establishment. As I don't drink alcohol and the evening was chilly, I ordered a hot tea, they had none of any kind! We ordered the Tapas sampler and not one item was edible. The "gourmet sliders" were on stale...

This is my go-to place for dinner and drinks with the girlfriends. Great martinis, for sure, but you have to try the bleu cheese nachos.... wow!! We always have great service and we love the hip atmosphere.
