Wife's place

My wife enjoys the Chicken Salad at this place. The downtown location prepares their salad different from the southfield location. So we prefer southfield. The Gumbo is always good and service is pretty fast.

In one week I was here for dinner on a Sunday night (3pp) and lunch on a Tuesday (7pp). Been here a few times before and the food is always good. But both times this week, the service was just awful. Two different female food servers. Both couldn't be bothered to go beyond taking our order and bringing our food.... More

Service is well below my expectations, server could not even take the order correctly, and when the food arrived, she doesn't even remember who ordered what food, and it was only 3 people. We ordered 3 simple dish of gumbo, chicken wings and a sandwich. All 3 of us were dissatisfied with the food, just took a few bites and... More

This used to be a great place to go, but their portions have gotten much smaller and the prices have gone way up. Also, they are very rarely busy but you'd never know it by how slow the waitstaff is. We used to go there a lot, but not much anymore. It's just not worth it.

Good food at a good price. I've recently changed the foods that I am allowed in order to improve my health. I'm limited to fish, chicken and turkey and I thought it would be hard making the adjustment but Fishbone's Rhythm Kitchen Café is making the adjustment a little easier. I recommend the grilled chicken breast to those looking for... More

I went to the Southfield location today with 3 co-workers. The service was slow and lacking. The food was just OK but nothing great like Fishbone's used to be years ago. This restaurant has really went downhill and sacrificed food quality. I will never go back and would not recommend this restaurant to others.

Was on a business trip, and met some friends for dinner. They recommended this place, which was near the hotel, so off we went. The food was OK, not great, decent gumbo, fried alligator was crispy, if kind of flavorless. You get the idea. So, since I was on an expense account, we told out server "Coco" (not her real... More

We stopped in for a quick drink before a dinner party. Nice atmosphere and besides dinner tables they have low couches for a 'loungy feel'. A nice Scotch and wine list. And Laura was very friendly and nice to visit with.

The service when I have been their wasn't very good, the food was good, and the atmosphere is good. If you like New Orleans style food your will enjoy it here.
