The food was fine. Nothing wrong with it. It was average nothing amazing. It was pretty dead but i guess it was also a Tuesday night. I feel the food was over priced. Average tasting food shouldnt cost so much. But the interior design was really cool. That was definitely the best part of the place.

I used to love this place. When I worked closer, I was there monthly at a minimum. In the past, this restaurant was jam packed at lunch, even though it's large. Now there were just a handful of people there and I can see why. First, I really like the atmosphere in the restaurant, but when the table smelled like... More

Good food, atmosphere is not my style. The dining room reminded me of an old style southern formal restaurant. Nothing wrong with that but I prefer the more Mardi Gras atmosphere Cajun places. I had the seafood gumbo and it was everything I had hoped for. Dark rich stock and a fair amount of seafood, shrimp and crab, served over... More

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.
