It was a dark and stormy night. Therefore, the restaurant was not very busy. Or it could have just been that it was a Wednesday night in January in Windsor and that it’s normally not very busy. I was greeted quickly and was given a quiet table, (wait, they were all quiet). The Wine list was small, but had an adequate selection. The dinner menu also was short and simple. Not overbearing or complicated. The food was absolutely delicious. I started with the Seafood Chowder and for the main, I enjoyed the Short Rib Risotto. I was very impressed by the service and the quality of the food. My only minor complaint is that I found the restaurant to be a little cold, but that might have just been because of the weather outside and I was sitting by the door.

Enjoyed a business luncheon at the City Grill and I thought it was very good. We each ordered a 3 course meal which included a fruited salad, filet mignon (cooked perfectly med rare) with veg and smashed garlic potato and dessert. Wine selection was very good, atmosphere was very comfortable and the service was excellent. I would return.

The Food here is good- always quite tasty.....yet I always find myself guessing what will show up on the table (the descriptions are not always very clear)....but the wait staff is quite good and the atmosphere is nice.

The Windsor entrance to the Detroit Tunnel is deservedly famous for the Tunnel Barbecue but if you are interested in fancier fare check out The City Grill at Ouelette and Park. Bistro style with innovative dishes featuring a variety of meats, game and seafoood. Excellent wine list and pleasant service. The appetizers and desserts are interesting enough that you will be tempted to skip the mains (but don't). If a Braised Rabbit Board or Black Cod don't turn your crank, there is a selection of Gourmet Burgers that is one of the most unique I have encountered.

The menu changes seasonally so you will want to stop in more than once.
