I enjoy trying new places in the city and thought we would give this one a try. Decor and atmosphere was interesting. We waited in the foyer for at least five minutes before anyone appeared to seat us then the host seemed very confused. There were two groups ahead of us and each time he tried to seat someone he...

I saw this place profiled on a Food Network TV show where it was given rave reviews. Thus while in town for the auto show, we had to try it! Our expectations were high. The atmosphere is awesome - a crazy cool collections of antiques, artwork and such. The hostess was friendly and attentive. Our waitress on the other hand... More

Let me just start by saying that I was really hoping to like this place. I had read about it in Hour Detroit magazine and had driven by it last month. I was hoping to add this to my list of "finds" and have another favorite restaurant to go to when I'm in Detroit. However, this place disappointed in many... More

I meet some people for a luncheon meeting. The place is dungy, so I guess it would be quaint. The food is ok and pricing is reasonable. The service was slow and not very professional. They seem that gratuity is expected, but not earned.

So, gratuity is suppose to be all about rewarding good service... not here. We had 7 people at our table and they automatic add 20% to the bill... I have been to many other establishments that have this practice but the amount is typically 18%. The difference is that that even though it is automatic, it is still not forced... More

Visited the old Cass corridor of Detroit this past week. Boy was I surprised. I had last been in the area about 20 years ago and it was decrepit looking at that time. Now it is vibrant and happening with many popular attractions and suburban visitors. In this area is a restaurant that has been there for many years called,... More

Tucked next to the Shinola shop, I wouldn't have spotted it if I weren't looking. Food was ok but what shone were the cheeses and dairy products made in house. We didn't have beer, which this place is supposed to be known for so can't comment on that end. Worth a visit.

This restaurant has been around for years and is fantastic! Everything is homemade in a cool urban environment. Don't miss the salad with the pork cutlets- so good. Very innovative menu. The restaurant is near Wayne State, and the area is quickly becoming very popular. Visit Shinola next door and the cute little stores across the street. You won't be... More

We went on a recommendation. Always crowded. There is a bar area where you can wait for a table. Great service and a good menu of fresh prepared food.

From entering to leaving I would give the staff a 1 star rating. We were ignored by the hostess even though they were not at all busy. The wait staff was just okay (not the worst, but not very attentive/efficient either). The worst part of the experience was the food, which of course was the real reason we were there.... More
