One colleagues of mine recommended to me this restaurant and we went there for a business dinner. Even if there was just another table, we waited too much for the starter, and dessert. Food was fine and also there were big portions of steak. Beer from a local brewery, recommended by them, was too light.

My partner and I had valentine's day dinner at the Rattlesnake and the experience was absolutely fantastic. To start, the location is pretty good, although driving to it can feel odd if you are not used to the city. It is near the river, so if the weather is nice it is a short walk. The restaurant looks nice and... More

Went with group after the auto show. I may have chosen the wrong dinner--grilled shrimp was extremely dry and had no flavor. A person in our party had perch and raved about it. The service was very good and the dessert of white chocolate ravioli was wonderful.

My wife's filet was also great. We're not always beef eaters, but I had read good reviews. Boy, were they right! It's always been a great venue; don't know why more people don't flock here. Side dishes were good, with one exception (according to my wife).

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.

After a long day of touring Detroit our conference group stopped in for our reception dinner. The service was phenomenal and entertaining. Food was delicious and dessert was oh so yummy. After dinner take in a nice walk along the river.

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
