    I went here for my birthday and anniversary dinner. The way the table was set up was very private. The service was friendly, but I asked for vegetables and got rice, however, the food was very good as was the wine. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who enjoys seafood.

    This was our second visit to this place. We went both times for the"all you can eat crab legs", and had a great meal on both occasions. Our waiter was excellent and very prompt at keeping us supplied with those delicious crab legs. One of my guests opted for a menu item other than crab and was very pleased with both the quality and presentation. The only negative comment I will make is that the bar area noise can be very distracting to the dining experience. I really don't know how they can control a very active bar scene but it is annoying while dining.

    Great city décor in just the right neighborhood for it. Excellent food and service; live music (with mediocre vocalist but better than "piped in" music). All around, a very good dining experience - Detroit needs more places like this.

    As usual the 4 of us enjoyed our meals very much to perfection. For some reason, after visiting the restaurant numerous times the service is not as good, don't come around to refill water glasses and waited a fair amount of time for main courses. The menus were not removed from the table had to put them on the bench next to me. trivial point but noted

    The servers were overwhelmed because the restaurant had a large group in prior to the official opening for brunch on this Sunday. The restaurant management should prepare better in the future---if there's going to be a large group, staff up and prepare; Sunday brunch is a big time, too, and needs the proper attention. They also had some trouble getting tables cleaned and prepared for guests, and keeping the buffet full. Our server was very pleasant, just overwhelmed.

I recommend Kenny's Favorite or the Detroit Lobster tails. And my waiter was better than the best at Lely's! We loved the music and the ambiance. A hidden gem!

    My wife and I had a very nice dinner. We shared a salad, since they are pretty large. My wife had the raw oysters, which she found were the best she has had in the midwest. We both had Paella, and they were great. The service was very attentive. We really enjoyed the experience and will come back.

    I had the trout and it was good. My friend ordered the crab cakes and they were all filler and little crab. She did not finish it. A young lady Caroline ? was our server and she was excellent and very solicitous. She told the chef and they deleted her crab from the bill. Ihave been to the restaurant before and enjoyed the fish and I will try it again. Thanks for asking. Margot

    The place was very nice, however our meal was rushed because on Saturday nights they have a party at 12 midnight for the young partygoers. Our reservations were for 10:30pm so that really interfered with us relaxing and enjoying our meal. We could tell that the waiters were trying to hurry us up. My appetizer was sent back bcause it was not what I expected, and they were nice about it. We will go back but much earlier.

    I visited this restaurant because I had a Groupon. When we arrived we were handed large, multi- entry menus. However, when I mentioned I had a Groupon, they took those away and brought out a single half sheet menu with a selection of only 4 entrees. I felt rooked. I ordered the stuffed lobster and it was super tough, and had a bitter alkaline taste to it. Although the service was great, I will not be returning.

    This popular seafood spot was bustling when my two companions and I arrived for our 7 PM reservation (on Sunday) so there was an approx. 15 min. wait before we were seated --but the hostess was gracious and apologetic. Unfortunately, our server was not as pleasant. All three of us ordered the lobster bisque --it was good but not fantastic. Even though there were 7 DRW entree choices, they were out of the one I really wanted so I ordered red snapper from the regular menu, while both of my friends ordered scallops from the special menu. My serving was very generous, their's very skimpy...3 medium- sized scallops, a spoonful of rice, and a dollop of veggies. All was good, but not outstanding. Good wine selection. We would return there again.

    Restaurant was out of stock on trout so decided to upgrade the dish without notification to swordfish. Which was medium rare, girlfriend steak was overcooked. To sum it up, a fine dining restaurant experience without exception food or service. The Sunday afternoon musician was nice.

    We were very excited to eat at this restaurant. The decor, tables and restaurant in general was awesome looking. We were quickly disappointed when our bottle of white wine came to our table warm. We brushed it off as we are not terribly picky people. Oh well we thought, cheers! Our soup arrived with a layer of skin which meant it had been sitting in the cup for a while. The dinner was a bummer when my trout arrived anemic and thin with the skin on. Okay, lets see how it tastes. It took me a moment to realize my friend which ordered the same dish had a huge salmon type of filet, not so anemic looking and thick without a layer of skin on??!? Will dessert turn it around for us? Nope. Lemon pie had a super soggy crust. We won't return.

    Disappointing dinner as we were rushed through the meal to make way for the next reservation during restaurant week. I wasn't finished with my soup and the meal was on the table. My dinner plate was removed and in less than 60 seconds, dessert was served. A table of 5 and we were in and out in less than an hour; not exactly leisurely dining. We still spent a large sum of money for what we received (small portions) - we won't be back.

    We ate at Detroit Seafood Market for DRW and before a Tigers game. We were immediately seated and the service was very attentive. The scallops were perfectly cooked but the jasmine rice was just okay. The food could have been a little hotter but was mostly very tasty. Great place to eat before a Tigers game and we may try it again before a Red Wings game. We love trying good restaurants in Detroit.

    Scallops and vegetables were very salty and rice was undercooked. Chocolate cake was unimaginably sweet. And surprisingly the martini I had, which was served in a daquiri glass, was $15. The cocktail menu didn't have prices, but still I never would have imagined that a Detroit restaurant could get away with $15 mediocre drinks. Server was nice. Bathroom attendant setup was awkward and uncomfortable.

    I Ordered from the special DRW menu. The Scallops were so fresh and very good. It came with rice that was cold and awful. When the bill came the pricing was difference then that on the DRW menu. Not a value added dining experience at all. Server was good and music was great. But wish I had chosen to go to difference restaurant that too was apart of DRW.
