Waiter was great. Every course was perfect. Lobster corn dogs, filets, dessert, drinks. Not a single complaint. And CI was able to give us a table with a view down the river. Couldn't have asked for anything more.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMbeautifulWatching to sun set over Detroit was inspirational. You could not ask for a more romantic venue.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good to very good.Food was good to very good. Proportions were nice. Price was a little high for overall quality of the food, however you can not beat the views....6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMmixedExcellent service and surroundings. My wife absolutely loved her dinner. Scallops. I tried the southern style ribs. Not at all what I expected. The greens were incredibly sharp in taste and the rib meat was much like pot roast. Maybe I don't have the right palette for this dish but I was disappointed. Should have stayed with traditional plate like porterhouse. I really enjoy the setting there and will return but will be less adventurous with trying something like the southern ribs.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING EXPERIENCE. IT ISNTAMAZING EXPERIENCE. IT ISNT JUST A RESTAURANT! BEST RESTAURANT IN TOWN. PERIOD! - DETROIT NATIVE6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic and Wonderful Views!I took my boyfriend here this weekend for his birthday. We valet parked at the Marriott Hotel and it only costs us $10 (you have to get your ticket validated at the restaurant). Our table had the perfect view but really any table would have a great view. Our waiter was Eddie and he was great - very courteous, helpful, knew the menu very well. We both ordered the filet mignon and we shared the sides (mashed potatoes and asparagus) because we were told they were big enough portions for both of us. I'm glad we did this because we even had left overs. The steak and sides were all delicious. They even surprised my boyfriend with a dessert. We both had a wonderful time and we will definitely be going back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food and ServiceThe view from atop the Renaissance center was marvelous, especially since it can be enjoyed from any of the tables in the restaurant.
But we went there for the food, and not one of the 4 of us were disappointed in the least. This was by far the best dining experience I've had in years.
The Waygu strip steak was the most delicious cut of any steak I have tasted.
I also got to try bites of the short ribs, salmon and scallops and I couldn't have gone wrong with any of those choices.
In addition, our server was helpful, knowledgeable and made sure to keep the mood light and enjoyable (as we were trying to keep it that way for ourselves).6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingCoach Insignia is truly a Detroit Gem! If I couldv'e given it a higher score I would have to food, the sevice and the view amazing!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth ever penny!I brought my friend from Iowa to Coach Insignia. It was the first time for both of us. The view from the elevator alone is breathtaking, as your eyes scan Belle Isle, Windsor, and the Ambassador bridge. My friend and I were seated at a window facing Belle Isle - it was absolutely beautiful. We ordered the Pistachio Baklava Cale and the White Chocolate Cake. When our dessert arrived, we couldn't believe how perfect it was presented, and the taste was even better! Ever bite was better than the one before. Our bill wasn't outrageous and the service was great. We loved our Coach Insignia experience and we will be back soon!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMake Reservations earlyI made reservations 1 week ahead. I was disappointed with our table which was not a window view and was right in front of a waiter station which blocked the view. Beyond that, the food was amazing and the view was still enjoyable. It was a great expeience and I would recommend any visitors to Detroit to check it out.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM18th AnniversaryWe went to the Insignia to celebrate our anniversary. It was a pleasant experience - the food, service and ambience were terrific. We would definitely come back for another visit in the future.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Special celebrations!!We enjoyed an absolutely delicious dinner with exceptional wine! The service we received was excellent!
Katie, Dan and Brady made sure we had a memorable evening!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphereThs place is one of my all time favorites. Its absolutely beautiful and very romantic. The elevator ride up is a joy within itself. Overlooking the river and being able to see acroos to canada is amazing. The drinks are awesome and reasonable. Also the crab cakes are by far the best i've ever had.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFather/ Daughter on the townI recommend this restaurant to all that may be looking to plan a special evening. I decided that a special night out was needed to honor my daughter's achievements and hardwork. The restaurant knew of the special occasion and made sure to assist in the recognition. She was in awww. Thank you Coach Insignia. Fortunate for us, Katie was assigned to assist. She is absolutely wonderful. She had great recommendations, food was great and the view was breathtaking.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe went for our anniversary and were not disappointed. The last visit was about 25 years ago when it was under a different name and the restaurant rotated....we do miss that feature. The food and service were excellent and everyone wished us a happy anniversary. It is expensive, but worth it for a very special treat.. Some of the areas could use a face-lift, but overall, it was lovely.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMmore than just a viewOf course we chose coach insignia because of the unparalelled view of city river and friendly international neighbors however the food was easily in the same class as the view. New york strip was a near flawless cut. Salads and staff recommended sides were perfect compliments. Katie waited on us and i will ask for her again with my next reservation.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night!Took some European work vistors and had a great time. View was beyond great, food was excellent, and service was great5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal everIt was the best meal I ever had. Michigan fish and chips, with a 5oz lobster tail. The lemonade cocktail I had was so good I had two :) best view in Detroit. And the glass elevator was an exciting touch.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing menu, delicious food!Coach Insignia for an evening meal was a great experience! Service was prompt and excellent, the menu offered an interesting variety of appealing options, and the view and ambiance was just spot-on. I ordered the stuffed quail while my girlfriend ordered the wasabi-crusted salmon. We finished the meal off with the white chocolate cheesecake. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted absolutely delicious! Would definitely return and recommend.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal of my life!!!This was the best meal I ever had, plus with a bonus view!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome ScenerySpectacular views of Detroit and Canada.

GREAT SERVICE.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceThe food was amazing. The wine was fabulous. Dessert was a guilty pleasure. Our Server Justin M was really nice, and one of those waiters that was definitely fit to work in a fine dining restaurant. I am definitely coming back to Coach Insignia, once i save up again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe heard about the awesomeWe heard about the awesome view so we went for a romantic dinner but was disappointed when we were seated on a booth where the view was obstructed with a wall. We proceed to ask to be seated elsewhere with a nice view since we notice open table with great view are available but the receptionist did not pay attention much since she sat us again in a booth with full table in front of us so our view was not as spectacular as we imagine although food and our waitress was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ViewExcellent view, very good Food and Service!
It was my first visit and experience of Detroit, I liked!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPaying for the viewCoach Insignia is a wonderful experience; the wait staff are fantastic and the food is absolutely phenomenal. I went for an anniversary dinner with my wife. The views were stunning, and definitely what the price tag was all about. The food may have been a tad overpriced, but for a rare experience, it was worth it.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCoach InsigniaEverything was perfect for my wifes birthday, the view (Detroit and Winsor), staff, food (Prime Ribeye and Filet Mignon) , wine (Von Hovel Riesling), and dessert (White Chocolate Cheese Cake). I am looking forward to spending another evening with my wife there again. Highly recommended.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulMy wife and I enjoy the food and service was just wondeful.

Sparkling red wine, fantastic! Highly recommend the lobster corn dogs! Could barely hear the music, and there was a toddler running around, climbing onto the window ledge. Also a baby fussing at the next table. Not a deal breaker for me, but I love kids!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat timeCoach was an amazing place to go to celebrate my birthday this year!

I had a fillet and could cut it with a butter knife :) Great service and a beautiful view to enjoy dinner to.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNoiseI'd just like to comment on the noise-where I was seated it was nice and quiet. But I noticed as we left the restaurant the noise level was higher where the tables were more concentrated. I would definitely request the same table next time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPlesantly suprised. The waitressPlesantly suprised. The waitress was the best I have had in years.

The view is unmatched in Detroit - absolutely beautiful. The wine list is overwhelming... the service is always excellent... and the steaks are delicious! We will use any excuse to travel downtown to enjoy this dining experience - a special occasion, an anniversary or even an overdue date night. The Coach cosmo is to die for as well as the old favorite called Willy's punch. We love it and always recommend Coach to all of our friends. We just wish they'd bring back the scalloped potatoes...4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMJust an amazing place, ambianceJust an amazing place, ambiance and the service was great!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the perfect placeThis was the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary. Coach insignia did their best to reserve a river view table. They did not disappoint. The staff was very kind and knowledgable. Our waiter was excellent. This is the type of restaurant where knowledge of wine can be very handy. Unfortunately, I am a beer guy. No fear, our waiter recommended an excellent beer for my meal. This was my first time at Coach Insignia, thanks to Restaurant Week, but it will no be our last. Thank you for making a memorable evening for my wife and me.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed my time there. FoodEnjoyed my time there. Food was great. Great presentation.
