Best restaurant on the East side of Metro Detroit suburbs. Great design, Master chef and staff. Great wine and single malt selection. Loyal clientele. Menu offers limited selections, but with variety. LOVE THIS PLACE

my husband and I go there whenever we are in town. Best food in this area. Everything is good, if not great whatever you order. Kinda busy on the weekends, but if you don't mind the wait or the noise GO! You won't regret it.

Happy hour is the best! Unique food choices offered. Later in the night a bit of live music. A nice change from the norm, makes a great date night.

Occasionally I will order a gluten free pizza as well. My favorite salad is the Kale Farro (but I have them leave out the Farro, due to gluten... More

We arrived around 6pm on Friday and needed to strategically protect for up to 4 more couples. As it turned out we were seated at a high... More

Saturday night dinner with a friend was wonderful. The best restaurant I've been to in SE Michigan. The food was unique and some of the best I've had in any restaurant, New York to Los Angeles. The service was top notch. Only complaint was that the restaurant is a little loud and crowded, but still a great evening. The calamari... More
