“Great Food”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Small place at Campus Martius. The waiter greeted me by name, probably because I was the only one there who made a reservation. French Bistro atmosphere down to the paper table covering. I had the salmon. Good sized portion cooked to perfection. Great service. Detroit gives the illusion of being a large city but there is really no one around on a Friday night unless there is some kind of sporting event. Take advantage of this. Convenient parking, very clean and safe area. I will return.

“Best Bistro Ever”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This was the most enjoyable restaurant I visited while in Detroit. The food was delicious, service was friendly, and views were spectacular. Had dinner on Friday and went back for brunch on Sunday.

A quick walk from the Westin where we stayed.

“Great salad!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Had the bibb salad w/chicken and hot bread with olive oil. Swapped the blue cheese dressing for the lemon thyme vinagrette for a lighter flavor. Delicious!! My friend had the goat cheese salad and loved it too. Can't say enough about the delicious hot bread. Nice atmosphere too.

“Fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This was my second visit--great food, terrific service and the best ambience available in Detroit--city Christmas tree, ice rink, Compuware building. I would recommend this place again and again. It is also a nice place for a Sunday morning brunch.

“Great food, great location”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went out for a birthday with a large group. Food is very good. Chef came out to talk to us and confirm all was well. Staff took care of us. Price was quite reasonable. Locale with lots of windows makes it a great place to see the world going by, giving energy.
