“Love at first sight”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

How beautiful the white lights surrounding the entrance were! I was impressed from first sight of the place. The inside was great too. We went with another couple and we all opted for the Prix fix menue of Morel madness, a five course meal. Everything was absolutely delicious, especially the morel bisque soup. Tiny serving but so rich, it would spoil the appitite if you ate a whole bowl. I will definitely return for a cup of the soup and have a menu item less filling.

“Great new look, good food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Had drinks and appetizers at the bar. Bartender was a little "offish", maybe just having a bad day? The mushroom sampler appetizer was delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend the mushroom bisque. The chip and dip app was not bad either! Wine list by the glass could be improved. Nice, new interior, nice decor. Has a semi-private room for smaller parties.

“another Detroit themed restaurant”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Its OK. It is a nice alternative to the local chain restaurants. A lot of local Detroit photo themes. The interior isn't exciting but it does have a bar area at the heart of the restaurant. The food is better than most chains and is reasonably priced.

“As good as before!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food was as good as the previous restaurant on Telegraph. The atmosphere spoke fine dining, which it is. Great food, attractive presentation, good service. What more can one want?

“Morels was as good as I read about”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stopped in when I was in the area because of the reviews about their mushroom bisque. I admit it was wonderful and I will make the trip to have just that now that I have experienced it. The service was good, we was seated right away and wait staff was prompt and professional. Only issue I had is that they serve luke warm water, but I asked for ice and I was brought a glass promptly.

Had the Lobster Mac and Cheese as a starter and it was fabulous. Huge chunks of lobster and plenty cheesey. Had the Chicken and dumplings and it was tasty and satisfying. I was hoping to save room for dessert but the bread basket prevented that. Looking forward to going back and sampling several more items.

Parking is a little weird because they share a lot with Detroit Prime and even though the restaurant was not packed on a Thursday night the parking was sparse. People for Detroit Prime were parked in several of the spots.
