The building inside is extremely clean and well kept. Seats are very comfortable. Bathrooms are easy to get to. Great acoustics. Would definitely recommend anyone to see a show here. Free parking on site attached to building. Restaurants and refreshments avail inside at a cost.

Love this theatre and have been to many performances here. It is a Beautiful venue for any play or musical

tonight we tried something different and booked the Spotlight Restaurant for a unique and intimate dinner before the show " Beautiful " the show itself was an excellent performance ; A "10" for sure

The " Spotlight Restaurant " not so good and would give it a "5" at best. $40.00 a person for a few pieces of chicken , salad and pasta was Ridiculous !! the food was OK ; The service was poor at best and unattenative !! who for example caters a planned dinner for a Total of 18 people and only puts pout 12 dinner plates and silverware ?? Then it took at least 20 minutes to find the guy and 5 minutes more to get a plate to get my dinner and join my party of 4 who by this time where finished their dinner ??
ridiculous !!
And then to make it even better The Famous Andiamo Desert that was promised ---- Never Came

strongly recommend one eats elswhere !! sounded like a nice concept but Andiam's who cattered it fell far short of our expectations

would not go back ---Ever !!!!

Love the theater...been there several times. Were able to sit in the front row and converse with the orchestra. They work really hard. The show was really good....disappointed that they didn't sing the same songs that were in the movie, but it was a good show otherwise. Ate at the spotlight lounge before the show...very good food...then was able to go back down there for intermission and have cookies and brownies...even had our own bathroom to use so we didn't have to wait in line.

From the time I arrived until the time I left, my entire visit was frustrating. I got to the theater and I was surprised to see that there was not any valet parking. On the website it stated that there would be valet parking. As a disabled guest, I had hoped to simply turn my car over to a valet and save myself from walking. I ended up having to park in the parking structure, fortunately in a handicapped space, but it was still quite a walk to the entrance of the theater.

This theater has not been updated very well to accommodate handicapped guests. When I bought my tickets, I bought my ticket for the mezzanine level on the right because I was told on the phone that that would be a convenient spot since the elevator drops people off to the right side of the mezzanine level. I chose a seat on the aisle at the very front, so I was in seat AA 64. It had a good view, but it was very uncomfortable. The cushion was lumpy and it didn’t go all the way to the back of the chair so my tailbone was resting on the hard surface of the seat. When I first arrived, there were long lines for the bathrooms, so I decided to wait until intermission to use the restroom. Unfortunately, by the time I walked from my seat to the restroom, there was again a very long line. I waited in that line, and by the time I got into the restroom, the chimes were playing letting people know they needed to get back to their seats. My entire break was spent waiting in line.

Once I got into the restroom itself, I realized that there were no handicapped stalls. There were approximately five very small, regular bathroom stalls. Since there was no way to get back to my seat without waiting until the ushers would let me back in, and after being very frustrated with not having a handicapped accessible bathroom, I left. I had paid $115 for my ticket, but my uncomfortable seat, the lack of a handicapped accessible restroom and frustration with the poor sense of organization led me to not enjoy my evening. The intermission break should be longer to accommodate the fact that so many people were still in line for the bathrooms. When I left, there were still at least 15 women in line.

They also need to have more people available to assist guests who need help. Before getting in the restroom line, I had looked for an usher to ask if there were handicapped accessible bathrooms. At that time, I did not see any ushers. Before even going to the theater, I had read through the information on the website for the Fisher Theatre, but I didn’t see anything about handicapped accessible restrooms. After getting home, I did revisit their website and after a bit of digging I found that there is apparently a handicapped accessible restroom in the foyer, but I did not know that at the time. It would’ve been nice if I had been aware of it when I bought my ticket and I would’ve chosen a ticket on the main floor. I thought that all buildings had to be updated with handicapped restrooms and it doesn’t make sense to have no handicapped restrooms on the mezzanine floor. No one should have to go to a different level of the building just to use the bathroom. When I called on the phone before my visit, I was debating getting one of the wheelchair accessible seats because I generally do use a wheelchair, but I saw that they only had two seats available for wheelchair users and since I can walk with a cane, I didn’t want to tie up one of the wheelchair seats, so I left it so that if someone needed it more than me, they would have it. There should be more wheelchair accessible seats in a theater of this size.

Absolutely love the Fisher. I bought season tickets for me and my daughter, and I am so glad that I did the staff is so wonderful and it’s a great time to spend with my daughter. The parking is easy to get in and out, and there is really no bad seats in the Fisher. It’s just a good day to have fun.

Parking included in ticket cost, many cafes open to grab a bite. Historical frescoes and marble. Spotty WiFi and small # of bathrooms due to age of facility. Come back for a building tour!

I've been a volunteer usher at the Fisher in Detroit for 40 years. It is a beautiful historic building. There is not a bad seat in the house. If you get a chance to go, get tickets in the messanine section. It is truly the best spot.
