“Wonderful food, great view.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Experienced the restaurant last weekend. Wonderful food and great views of the city. We had a nice clear night. We got reservations online that night. Wine selection was good, and not horribly priced. I had a strip steak that was more like a tenderloin it was so good. My wife had a salmon special and not only was it very reasonable priced it was very tasty.

Only reason we didn't give the restaurant 5 stars is that the service was a little slow. I noticed most tables waited 10 to 15 minutes after their meal was done to get their bill etc. Ours was the same.

Would definitely recommend.

“Should be #1!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

If you're the type of traveler who loves the opportunity to try an outstanding restaurant with incredible service, creative menu and spectacular views, THIS is the place to go in Detroit. If you're not into gambling, don't let the fact that this very fine establishment is located in Detroit's Motor City Casino stop you. Our excellent server, Helios, possessed the perfect combination of professionalism and warmth. He was incredibly knowledgeable about food and wine, and specifically about the menu offerings. We followed all of his recommendations - from the appetizer featuring delicious sauce & food pairings, to the white fish with creamed spinach, and the filet prepared as a homage to the cheeseburger. Wonderful! Add to all of this the spectacular view of Detroit from the 16th Floor! It wasn't just a meal. It was a food event.

“Seriously 5 star ? The Jury is Still Out”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We went here during Detroit Restaurant Week, Their menu selections reflected a "cost cutting structure". Sort of "We really don't want to spend (offer) a lot on a $30 menu selection." Now understand , this place is listed as 5 star. Well it would seem to me that most people go to Restaurant week to try New places. They offered nothing to bring me back at this tiime. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty "Pomp & Circumstance" , But the food should have been the Show, We had the Cod Selection. "BIG MISTAKE".!! With out going into too much detail, lets sum it up as "UGHH, BLECH, GULP". I mean it tasted steamed. Simply not good. We were watching the other tables and it was comedic. At one point one person brought out this 3 foot bucther block board, and then another person came and cut this average size Fillet Mignon in half on said board and served it to the 2 patrons. "WHAT !" I don't want a show, just good value, will surfice. and enough wit the Water, I want to fill up on Food, NOT WATER. The really nice aspect was the non visual piano player. He was superb. To bad his playing was'nt a menu selection. From what I experienced, 3 star would be more fitting. I would like to give it another try during a period that does not involve "Discount Menu"
