Detroit Seafood Market
night out on the cityThe seating selection needs improvement. Seating was by kitchen entrance. this shouldn't. be a place u put first time guest to your restaurant.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice timeI enjoyed the food and the environment. The staff was friendly and attentive.
The music level was extremely high. I could not hear the waiter or carry a conversation.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is yummy.We visited the Detroit Seafood Market for my mother's 70th birthday. The food was delicious and our waiter made good suggestions. He was also very accomodating for our toddler. Also, he was great about telling us when we were ordering food we didn't need. When our meal was done we ordered dessert. We waited over 30 minutes and our waiter disappeared. During our wait the hostess came over to apologize but our waiter was still MIA. He did apologize when he finally returned but his disappearance was strange. Overall, great food and we enjoyed our server's suggestions. The time between ordering and receiving food was too great and our waiter was often not present when he was needed. The staff appeared to be stretched thin with a large party.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome place!I have a great time every single time...the place is amazing! during brunch we were seranaded by some of the best live music I have heard in a restaurant setting. Will surely be back!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMServers were friendly butServers were friendly but very slow, place was not busy but still took 10 minutes or more every time ordered drink...would rate this place excellent if services was quicker.... Everybody was very friendly and food was great... Will return but if you need to be somewhere afterwards give at least two hours for meal6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood spot for seafood in DetroitHad lobster, peppered tuna, lobster mac and cheese and a bit of calamari. Good experience overall. Would be nice if they had fresh juices, though, instead of juice out of a can or tap.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!The food was excellent. We went to try the lobster fest !6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch & Entertainment!I have been to dinner a couple of times and most recently to brunch three times in the last four months at Detroit Seafood Market. Aside from the waiter, Dave, and the great food, another reason to make return visits to brunch is to hear the entertainment! Can't remember his name, but Michael McDonald had better watch his back! Talk about a voice...Blue-Eyed Soul personified!! He plays keyboards, sax and has a voice that renders incredibly soulful gospel & other genres of music! The restaurant often applauds after each rendition. Brunch at Detroit Seafood Market is a treat for the stomach and the ears!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Amazing!I had an amazing time! The food, service, and ambiance was absolutely amazing. I will be back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go for seafood!Great place to go for seafood! Ecclectic atmosphere that is unique and I would recommend going there with a group of friends. Let the waiter recommend drinks if you're into fruity drinks. It seemed like our waiter could tell what each person would like just from looking at them. We went on a Thursday night so the staff was very attentive and the service was superb!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest fish in town!Meal was excellent all around....Crabcakes were light & tasty...My wife got the Chilean Sea Bass; cooked perfectly with the right spice of the jalapeno sauce...I had the Snapper; great texture with great toppings also....
Went for our 23rd anniversary & will be back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time there. we wentOur first time there. we went with our good friends and met outside. we reserved our table three days prior and this is the only way to go. we were greeted at least four different times while we waited to be seated. this is a plus as we were acknowledge. we were sat at the table we requested A+++. our waiter was David , our friend actually read the reviews and David was the #1 choice. aim not a big seafood guy but by the time David gets done explaining the menu to you everything sounds good. David knew not only the food selection but also the wine selection.
The bottom line we had a great time, price was reasonable, the staff was great to us and we would return again.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Nice PlaceWhat can I say? Great food, great drinks, great service, nice atmosphere. Wil definitely be back!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent and the food was great. We have a private booth which added to the experience. Jazz was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, parking terribleOrdered the salmon, was delicious and good portions, will go again. No valet parking and no validation. Paid $20 to park for a 1 1/2 hour meal on a Saturday night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day outingWe went to the Detroit seafood market. For Mother's Day lunch the food was great but the portions was small, my mom told Tony G who was are server that she didn't realize that the portions would be so small and he gave all of the mothers at the table free dessert to me that was first class5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected FANTASTIC resturantThis is fist time we stayed in downtown Detroit. We choose this resturant because we enjoy seafood. The service was "6 starts" out of 5. Our service was very friendly and accomodating with our requests. I definately highly reccommend this to anyone.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dinner experienceFour of us went for DRW. I was leery after reading very mixed reviews about the service and the food, but I am glad the opinions of others didn't make us shy away from this gem. First the food was excellent. We had the thai chicken, lobster bisque and crab croquettes appetizers - all outstanding. Tilapia, salmon and Delmonico steak for the main course and again all were outstanding. The chocolate lava cake for dessert was something I will dream about. Our waiter, Anthony, was very friendly and didn't miss a best. I can't imagine there's a bad seat in the house although I was very happy we were seated in a booth which had high backs and pulled back curtains, which made our meal seem almost private.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I had a greatMy friends and I had a great night. The food and music were wonderful. The busboy spilled water on my friend and it got all over her jacket. Nothing was done about it. The waiter saw and didn't say anything...He could at least offered to comp her drink or something. Her chair and the floor needed to be mopped up. When the water was spilled another water was never brought to her either. I was expecting good to great service.
The food came out fast and we were done in an hour. Wow!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Detroit RestaurantWent for Detroit Restaurant week, the service was fast and the food was pretty good!!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!My experience was great, had to wait at least 30 minutes for a reservation. But the food and service made up for the wait . Our waiter Tony was beyond anything we could have expected. Overall my friends and I had a memorable time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience! PerfectGreat Experience! Perfect menu for Restaurant Week! Will be back for sure!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic LunchOther than the wilted lettuce they placed on my sandwich (which they should be embarrassed about) and the soft not crispy fries I enjoyed my experience. The Ahi tuna on my sandwich was an amazing portion and cooked to my specification. Very tasty.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceA group of three of us went there on a Tuesday evening for Detroit Restaurant week after work. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was very good as well and the overall quality and portion was similar to what you would get on a normal night without the special menu. The place is a little loud as there is live music, so if you are looking for a quiet evening I would suggest going somewhere else.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and service!Wonderful food and service! Would definitely go back again!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCame for Detroit restaurantCame for Detroit restaurant week. If the minimal selection menu for the event was any indication of the full scale menu, I can't wait to come back. Crab croquettes were great appetizers, lanugoustine alfredo was somewhat ordinary but still delicious and the lava cake for dessert was rich and tasty. Also tried the thai chicken appetizer, also very good.
Atmosphere was odd. Kids are welcome, they just seem kinda out of place.
Service was spectacular. Slightly slow but it was the height of dinner time so it was acceptable. Didn't pressure anything.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService started out a littleService started out a little slow, took someone a while to come to our table and greet us. However, once she did the service was wonderful! Food was amazing.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed this restaurantWe enjoyed this restaurant a lot. The food was great and the ambiance is nice. The music was a bit loud, but not continuous.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe live music in the restaurantsThe live music in the restaurants bar area was too loud and intrusive while you were trying to dine. It was more suitable for a nightclub not a restaurant where people would like to talk to each other while dining.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough I'd always heardAlthough I'd always heard about DSM I had never gone until Sunday and the experience was great!!!! The waitstaff was great and the food...EXCELLANT!!!! I will be back!!!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMthe lobster bisque was fantasticthe lobster bisque was fantastic as was the spanish coffee4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and a greatGreat ambiance and a great place to catch a bite to eat with your significant other; really relaxed with a clientele that lends itself to a great time. Personally I enjoyed my appetizers (calamari & Thai chicken) better than my entrees (Stuffed salmon & Steak). But overall a great experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service.Great food and service. Booths are awkward facing outward toward other guests.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMUn restaurant où il fait bonUn restaurant où il fait bon se retrouver entre amis... pas tellement pour une soirée romantique, plutôt entre couples... j'ai aimé les banquettes très privées, qui étaient parfaites pour nous quatre.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMStepping Back In TimeFrom the moment you walk in you feel transported to an era almost forgotten. The wonderful piano player, the ambiance but most importantly the staff. I enjoyed every moment of sitting in the high back booths and wondering what was going behind the curtains of the private booth.
The food was a wonderful surprise. Appetizers and Entrees you think you know well but when they come to your table the fresh ingredients and the subtle twists on the classics leave you wanting more.
I loved it and my entire group loved it. We can't wait to visit again. Every visit here will be a special occasion just because we here.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was full andThe restaurant was full and VERY noisy. The service was surprisingly good in spite of the full house. The food was just super and worth returning for but not of a Friday or Saturday night for sure. Perhaps midweek it would be a little less frantic.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was the first time forIt was the first time for all four of us, and we all loved the food and service. The decor and lighting is beautiful. Our only complaint was the noise level. We loved the music, but it was just too loud.

We went for Sunday Brunch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMlunch dining experienceI liked the relaxed setting of the restaurant with the dark wood, crisp white linen table cloths, fresh flower on the table and the large windows that allows the natural light in the room. The lunch dinning experience was good. I had the freshed mixed green salad with the grilled salmon, goat cheese, dried cherries and Mandarin oranges. The size of the salad was just right for lunch, it was tasty and the salmon was grilled just the way I like it, nice and frim. The bread and butter was good and had a soft drink. If The restaurant staff was polite and courteous. Would have liked to have music with my dining experience but the piano was being tuned at the time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious.

However, the band was so loud we couldn't hold a conversation. The band was good, but we were really happy when they took a break so we could actually talk to each other without yelling.
