Attended a business dinner at the Rattlesnake Club. Beautiful location overlooking the water and Windsor, Candada in what appears to be a converted warehouse. Close to all the major downtown areas including Ford Field, Cobo Hall and Renaissance Center Street. The street parking was easy and there is also a parking lot across the street. Servers were pleasant and unobtrusive.... More

Went to the restaurant for a dinner meeting around 7 pm. The restaurant was very quiet, not many customers, did not look like to have good business. When salad was offered, it did not look like fresh at all. Several bad pieces of vegetables were inside. When the entree was served, food looks OK, however the size was too small.... More

Went with four friends and loved every aspect of our dinner. Drinks and food were top notch. I had the New York strip cooked medium-rare and it was honestly the best I've ever had. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is a bit pricey, but worth it. You never know who you will see or run in to there. Carmen Harlen feom Channel 4 news was at the next table over. The views of the river at pretty good. Come for lunch if you don't want to pay a lot and experience the atmosphere and food.

It had been 15 years since I had been to The Rattlesnake and I was really looking forward to dinner here with my husband. We were greeted and seated right away at a table by the window. The waiter was friendly and tried to be helpful. My husband enjoyed the crackers they brought him, but I thought the rosemary roll... More

The food is delicious and very well prepared. The attention to fresh and locally sourced cuisine is refreshing. The service is world class good. I highly recommend your party tries several deserts to share as they are unique and amazing. Don't miss the white chocolate ravioli desert!

Service was attentive and friendly and the food was very good, but not quite as good as one would expect for the price. This is one of those establishments where you pay as much for the name as the dinner, but everything was fresh, hot and very well presented. The parking lot, however, is in deplorable condition.

My wife and I tend to dine out near our home in Birmingham, and let's face it, that can get a bit monotonous. So, we decided to head downtown to the Rattlesnake. It had been many years since I was last there and I was surprised to see all the new buildings in this section of town along the river.... More
