Diner Reviews
  • "My partner and I went to the Detroit Seafood Market for Restaurant Week and was highly disappointed. The lobster bisque was very salty, the fried catfish and crab stuffed salmon was nearly tasteless, and the brandy chocolate mousse seemed to miss the brandy. But the bread was fresh and warm."

  • "While the service was good, the food was not and the décor was also odd for what I anticipated to be an upscale restaurant. Tried the restaurant during restaurant week which typically is a good indicator. Had the shrimp provencal. got 3 small shrimp, not even the jumbo size, in a very watery broth which were very overcooked so it was like chewing on a rubber band. moved on to the cornmeal crusted catfish entrée. While the catfish was cooked well he dish as a whole lacked oomph. There was supposed to be crab on top of the catfish of which I got maybe a teaspoon if I was lucky and it was cold. Finally came dessert. I opted for the NY cheesecake which wasn't that great either. The crust was soft and just eh. Needless to say, I won't be back."

  • "My husband and I fell in love with the atmosphere at Detroit Seafood Market. We enjoyed the live jazz (it was the perfect volume - not too loud, not too quiet), the bright booths, the booths behind curtains for privacy, the rounded bar... it was so cool! Our food was good, but not the best I've ever had. The lobster bisque was sorely lacking any actual lobster meat, but it was still tasty. Our lobster & shrimp alfredo was good, but again, not as flavorful as I'd hoped. Our chocolate mousse torte was fantastic, though, and the plating was phenomenal! All in all, we enjoyed our experience and would definitely give it another go! We're looking forward to all you can eat crab night soon!!"

  • "I went there for the restaurant week with my husband and a friend. It was very disappointed. The appetizer came with only tree shrimps and the seafood did not seemed to be fresh at all. The entree was decent. The selection of deserts was very poor."

  • "I visited this restaurant a couple years during Detroit Restaurant Week. It was so good that I have wanted to come back ever since. So when we got tickets for a local play, we took the opportunity to visit again. Such a good choice! Had the notable fried lobster tails. Scrumptious!! My husband had the Tuna. Cooked perfectly the way he ordered it. Our waiter was very polite, but a bit timid. The band playing by the bar was very nice. The drinks are actually not too badly priced, but the muscato I ordered was not as good as I've had other places. But I will definately visit again and soon!"

  • "We had a reservation, there were plenty of tables available but we had to wait to be seated. The waiter was nice, but not very attentive. We ordered the lobster mac & cheese and couldn't find any lobster in it. So the waiter said he would take it back and get us another one. The second one came out without any lobster either. The food was okay, but for the price not worth it. The restaurant was dirty the floor was so sticky it was hard to walk. We would not go back there."

  • "I initially had reservations for brunch. However, I received a call the day before and was encouraged to change my reservations to 4:00 pm, the start of dinner. I did and that was a mistake! Arriving a few minutes early, the place was lively and fun. When we were crammed in a booth that needed dusting, the music stopped, and people started rearranging furniture. Seemingly ignored obviously because of furniture duty, we sat crunched and waited. Finally a waiter brought 4 rolls for the 6 of us."

  • "We have been to this restaurant many times. It's one of our favorites. This time we had reservations for 5:30 and arrived at 5:00. We were ready and willing to wait until 5:30 to be seated but to our surprise we were seated immediately in one of the booths along the wall. We were given water and rolls immediately but that's where it ended. We waited until 5:45 thinking possibly the wait staff person for our table didn't start until 5:30. At 5:45 we asked one of the employees who was supposed to wait on us? Finally a waiter appears. His name was Calvin and he took excellent care of us. The food was wonderful (stuffed salmon and ribeye steak). My question is why nobody noticed we had not been waited on?"

  • "I have come here on at least 3 occasions where the service is POOR. The waiters take forever to take your order, and they never come back to the table to check on you or bring the bill.This last time I had to go get the Manager to get the bill. They never are apologetic or offer anything for the inconvenience. As much as I like this place I don't think I will return."

  • "Let me break it down: There was an empty candle jar at the back of the booth which served no purpose, the lights were extremely bright to give a romantic setting, the waiter looked and acted as though he hated his job and couldn't wait to get off work, the steak was well don’t even though we requested medium, I've had much better salmon at Red Lobster even for half the price tag and twice the size, the mashed potatoes has absolutely no flavor and were more like boxed potatoes, the cheesecake was from the frozen food section of the grocery store, and to top it all off 1 margarita was $12+!!!! We love to dine out and they just lost a valuable customer."

  • "The bartendress was friendly, but we were passed by and over many times first. When we were seated at our table, the dishes were dirty- cooked on pasta stuck to the plate. We placed an order for Oysters Rockefeller and drinks with our waiter. Nothing was explained to us. The waitress at the table next to us was wonderful- she was enthusiastic, recommended food and explained all of the specials- just not to us. She noticed me leaning back to hear, so she came and actually did a quick recap for us, and apologized for our waiters mistreatment. The apps arrived- luke warm at best. We decided this was not going to get any better. We cashed out, no apologies or attempt to reconcile our experience. We then had a much better experience elsewhere."

  • "Great food and excellent service. the noise level was too high to hold a dinner conversation. It was so loud I didn't even know there was live music playing until I got up from the table to go to the bathroom and walked by the band. The musicians sounded good it would have been nice to hear them during dinner. Since the food and service were great I would go back."

  • "We had dinner here a few nights go on a trip to Detroit. It did not disappoint! The waiter recommended the lobster mac 'n cheese, and it was truly amazing. My husband got the scallops, and they looked like they were cooked perfectly, and he said they were also very, very good. I got the seafood paella, which was very good, but way too much for one person to eat! I felt so bad leaving a lot behind."

  • "I'm not sure how the quality of the food was better than red lobster. My lobster scampi was extremely lemony and rubbery. Actually red lobster would have been better. Yuck. Will never come back. First and last time."

  • "All you can eat crab legs kept coming hot from the kitchen! My companion had scallops which were as good as any if not the best I have ever had. Rico is an excellent server who keeps on top of his table so you aren't waiting for anything. A real class act in downtown Detroit. Live music raised the noise level but it was good music. You might not want that if you are looking for quiet though."

  • "This place was so busy and noisy I couldn't hear across the table. I was sat by the bar and had people trying to sit at my table. Drinks came slow because our waiter, who was very friendly, couldn't navigate through the crowd. Food was good but I will not be back because of the annoying loud crowd that had no respect for diners spending $200 on dinner. Also I ordered the sangria, it had more ice than sangria and was over $10. It was tasty but not a good value."

  • "The staff was great! However, the food could have been better that night. My aunts steak was ordered as med-well and it was burnt. My girlfriends peach cobbler was not very tasty at all, lacked sugar and overall taste. My brothers girlfriend said her seafood alfredo was not very tasty. Maybe that was just a bad night for the cook. The lamb chops were awesome though!"

  • "The restaurant was a really nice place for out family outing (5 adults). Over all the service was extremely slow, waiting at every interval. There is no designated server to a table and tables keep getting forgotten or dropped between servers. We had 2 wrong order made, accepted both just to keep it moving. We were there for 1.5 hours and actually had to leave before desert was served because it was so slow and we had to get to a show. Time was so short I had to just pay it in order to make our show on time. 1.5 hours to have a single course dinner is ridiculous. I want this restaurant to do well, and to thrive because we need it in the area but the poor service will probably kill it as patrons get frustrated."

  • "I was looking for a new place in Detroit to dine before going to the theater. Found the DSM on the Open Table site by location. It was a great choice! We were taken to a choice seat and pampered by the staff. They were very attentive and professional. The food was served with a nice presentation and was very tasty!! Good sized, but not oversized. Live jazz band started playing while we were there. It would have been a nice stop for the bar and to listen to the tunes."
