Diner Reviews
  • "Detroit Seafood Market was only two blocks away from Detroit Opera House so we could easily walk while leaving our car parked in the parking garage. Plus we could make dinner reservations, which many restaurants in downtown Detroit don't allow. We arrived about 20 minutes early and were seated at a booth immediately. The food was great. As a first time visitor, the waiter made me a special drink. Loved the appetizers and crème brulee for dessert as well. Was surprised to see a huge table for 30 laid out next to ours, but even more surprised when four cast members from Book of Mormon took seats at it along with 26 local supporters, including the editors of the local lgbt weekly newspaper. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

  • "Service was great. Food was ok, not bad, not outstanding either, I have definitely had much better seafood in my life. They have good deals (half off wine bottles on Tuesdays). But for the price, I expected the food to be a little better."

  • "The food was good and the service was friendly. The salad was amazing and the lobster tail and filet were also very good. We were not crazy about the lobster bisque."

  • "This was our first time visiting and we are glad we did. Our server was very professional. We love the booths that give you privacy. We started with Oysters Rockefeller because not too many places offer this. It was ok but we tasted more of the topping than the oyster. We both had sea bass although with different sauces and prepared differently. Both were very delicious!!! We will definitely return! Also, the manager was very friendly."

  • "Food and service were great. Celebrated my birthday. Used Groupon AND waiter did not explain that we were restricted to limited number of entrees and did not offer us a Groupon menu. Received only value paid for $65 and not the $117 shown on Groupon. Will not go back with Groupon again."

  • "Only got a small spoonful of the mixed vegetables that were very very good and only maybe half a cup of mashed potatoes with my meal. I had the deep-fried lobster tails which again were delicious but they left the tails intact probably for presentation which was really cool but was kind of tricky and messy to get out. Still, plan to go back next year when we going to the Detroit Opera House. Pretty pricey so I really can't afford to go more than once a year. Can't remember the gals name that waited on us but she was phenomenal a great waitress and I told her so,even got a hug! They should hold on to her she's a keeper!"

  • "Sea Bass was delicious. All you can eat crab on Wed. and Lobster special on Thurs. sounded great. Attentive service. All accompaniments were also well prepared. Better prices than some other "name " places. Can walk or short cab ride from RenCen."

  • "Wanted to have a special night out to celebrate our Grandaughters Birthday and all A's on her report card and we picked the right place. She loves Crab Legs and my entree of the double fried Lobster were perfect for the occassion. Our waitress was named Classy and she certainly was. Couldn't help but over tip her she made the evening fun for us. The only negative was that our entrees were brought out before we could even have our first taste of our soups and salads. A little rushed but nothing to really get upset about. We'll be back again for sure"

  • "My wife and I went there for a late dinner. I made reservations for 10:30. When we were on our way, we received a phone call stating on Fridays and Saturdays they stopped dinner at 10:00 p.m. I wish I knew that BEFORE we left home. We raced to get there and we did make the 10:00 p.m. time. But unfortunately the staff was busy removing tables and re-arranging the place for whatever they do after they stop dinner. This also had a lot of traffic going back and forth to get into the bar and dance area. Very disturbing way to have to enjoy a quiet romantic late night dinner. Then, to top it off, I ordered a Crust infusioned Red Snapper meal. It would have been nicer if the cook had removed the scales BEFORE applying the bread crumb cov."

  • "My wife and I went there for our anniversary and it was more than what we expected! The staff were very friendly and well engaged with each table.

  • "Had Scallops, Sea bass and Salmon. . . all were slimy. Service was good however server assumed we wanted top shelf drinks (which we did) but did not ask beforehand which seemed a little cheesy . . . desert portions small . . . for the $$$ quality was a big disappointment . . . we paid twice the price recently at Joe Muer's and felt 4 times the level of satisfaction"

  • "First time here at Detroit Seafood. Great food. The lamb chops were wonderful. Definitely, absolutely would order the lamb chops again. The Hostess was hilarious. Definitely a keeper. Loved the ambiance. Have already recommended this restaurant to my friends. Can't wait to go here again."

  • "Loved the look of the restaurant. Did not get made to order waffles, chef had some already set aside, very disappointed by that. Made to order is just that made upon request. Our waitress was nice, but not on top of her game. Had to ask for water several times, just lacked communication with us. Gave her money for the check she took forever to come back I had to stop her and ask for my change from bill. Wait staff needs more customer service training."

  • "Its been at least 5 years since I was here last due to poor service and food quality. Did not plan to return ever; however, my husband is a fan of the fried lobster and it was Father's Day so I acquiesced. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious (although the wait time was a little long) and the service was great! Classy was a very good server and knew the menu was able to recommend and her recommendations were on point. Will return."

  • "This was my first time at the restaurant since the change of management. The food and service was A1, the manager came and introduced himself and sent the bartender over with a Birthday Surprise drink for me. The live jazz playing really set the ambience. The only problem, which is a Detroit Public Safety issue, was the screeching fire alarm that went off for over 15 minutes. Otherwise, once it was turned off the customers cheered and carried on!"

  • "First time dining at the DSM; 7 pm reservation. Food and service were very good. My wife and I had the salmon, and a side salad. The jazz band which was playing was so loud we could not hear each other and we were seated quite a distance from the band. I plan on returning but not on a night when they have entertainment. "

  • "The food was great, the server was friendly. We were early for our reservation and was seated right away. The only problem I had was the credit card machine wasn't working and I had to walk across the street to use the ATM. The owner deducted the cost of the fees from my meal."

  • "Went there with my daughters before going to West Side Story. Service start out very good but then it fell behind. They seemed to be short staffed and once it got crowded it seemed to cause issue not only for our table but others. Our server was very good and friendly. Food is on par with a Mitchell's Seafood and the price range will not hurt the pocket book. In Harmony Park and there is out side dinning. Nice big windows that give you a view of the park. We would go back. "

  • "I took my mother and aunt to Detroit Seafood Market a day after Mother's Day to avoid crowding. The waitress was nice but the service was poor. It took her 10 minutes just to greet us and give menus. The it took another 15 mins for her to take our order (we had to summon her). Our appetisers did not take long a it was just lobster bisque. With that we noticed how salty the food was. We were glad to have a soup starter as the entrees took about 35 more min to come out. My mom and my aunt ate their food but mine was wayyyy too salty and I tried to eat it but couldn't. After another long wait they came and took my food, the chef confirmed it was too salty. It took her 20 mins to return with a menu!! Rather than wait I decided to pay and leave!"

  • "The service here was pretty abysmal and the noise level was pretty loud. The desserts were such that we each ate half of our own and just left the rest. My wife's deep fried lobster tails (2!) were really really good, but my seafood on rice felt like it was missing something to make it amazing, maybe a sauce or spice. Something. We had a $50 gift card, so for our $110 dinner for two with wine and after tip we paid $64, and $64 was about what I thought the meal and experience were worth. "

  • "Went for the Wednesday Crab special. Enjoyed it immensely. My sister was visiting from Georgia, and whenever she visits we always have to go DIA and then dinner at Detroit Seafood Market. We love the place. The noise level is energetic, but very reasonable. We are always able to converse comfortably, and still enjoy the live music. Ordinary meal and drink prices are very very reasonable. kOnce again, this is a true Detroit treasure!!"

  • "Read online reviews, and was a little skeptical about this restaurant, but it was close to the venue we were attending after dinner so decided to try it. So glad we did! We allowed 2 hrs for dinner, and could have been finished quicker, but wanted to take our time. Our waiter was wonderful. Friendly, cheerful, attentive, and not pushy. He made several recommendations from the menu. The Crab Croquettes, Stuffed Salmon, and Kenny's Favorite were wonderfully delicious, and our other appetizer and desserts were very tasty, too. The restaurant was a little noisy, but probably because there was a large group seated near us. All in all a great dining experience. Would return and definitely ask for the same waiter! "
