“Seafood. Service. Success!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We were staying at the Inn on Ferry Street and took advantage of their free shuttle service which meant we could eat anywhere in Detroit and not worry about parking. After looking at numerous restaurant websites we chose the excellent location of the Detroit Seafood Market and its positive reviews. We were not disappointed.

Although we had to wait a while for a booth, the staff were attentive and the manager even offered complimentary desserts. There was a great vibe to this place right for from the start: live jazz, to the friendly service and excellent seafood. We can recommend the lobster bisque, gumbo soup (both meals in their own right), the Flounder Rockefeller, the macadamia encrusted Mahi-Mahi and the crabmeat stuffed shrimp. And the desserts...superb!

We'd like to go back sometime for their brunch service.

“Flying blind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

All we had to go on were the reviews here in Trip Advisor. We booked on line and sat down 1.5 hours later. Great table. Fine service. Attentive sommelier. New Year's Eve no less.
Great Mac and Lobster, chop salad and grilled seafood platter. The price was right. Coming from the west coast, we have a discerning palate when it comes to seafood. Our 16 year-old said before hand "Seafood in Detroit?" In a word: enjoy. We did.

“A wonderful restaurant in the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a great dinner here. The atmosphere was very festive and the food was excellent! Many choices on the menu. We are here pre theater and were able to have a leisurely meal mad out in time to get to the show on time. Waiter was friendly and attentive.... We'll definitely go back!

“Yummy Food, great service, nice atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I really enjoyed this restaurant both times I dined there during my 4-day business trip. My first visit was on the night of my arrival in Detroit. I was staying at a hotel across the street and immediately checked Trip Advisor to see what was nearby and good. This restaurant came up so I went. My second visit was because I knew I didn't want to leave without experiencing it once more. From the rolls they set out on the table to the delicious calamari and seafood gumbo (appetizers) to the main courses (paella and chicken marsala) to the peach cobbler and bread pudding. . .this place was SO good! Sidenote: The paella didn't actually taste all that Spanish-authentic but it was still really delicious! I couldn't finish either meal in one sitting. Fortunately, I had a microwave in my hotel room and was able to enjoy my meals the following day. The service was outstanding each time! If you get there, ask to sit in Jay's section and tell him the black chick from CT with the braids, who stayed in the hotel across the street, sent you! :-) He's terrific and goes the extra mile to ensure you leave happy. I did get the sense that this is the case with all of their staff; the "house-style". I highly recommend Detroit Seafood Market!

“Fantastic ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Loved it!! Very convenient walk from the people mover. We had cups of gumbo to start. Delicious. My husband had encrusted mahi mahi which was very well prepared. I had the paella. Awesome. So good. Be warned it was huge and I ordered the half order. The service was friendly and impeccable. I strongly recommend reservations. Great place.
