Sunday is a busy day in Downtown Detroit. Reservations made several days before our Sunday brunch with Family. Fun atmosphere. Entertaining. Food was awesome. Staff was friendly. Relaxed for a couple of hours. We were not rushed. Would absolutely return.

Wonderful location in a renovated firehouse in Detroit. Reservations are strongly recommended at least for dinner. Large bar area in the middle of the restaurant. Very friendly staff. Small rotating menu.

We went to The Apparatus Room for a weekend breakfast, we arrived rather early and were seated straight away. The staff here were really attentive without being overbearing, and friendly. I chose the Full English breakfast, which was pretty good - the sausages were amazing....More

Our brunch is a delicious assortment of a la carte menu offerings. We highly recommend the buttermilk pancakes and the francoise omelet! Hope to see you soon.
