    We have dined at Joe Muer for several wedding anniversaries because the food is delicious and they always know how to make an special occasion extra special. Our oysters were delicious, salmon dinner was great, and we were presented with a beautiful dessert platter with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. A great evening!

    We went here for Sunday brunch, and had a very nice experience. The service was great, and the food was good. There were four of us in our party and we all ordered different items. I had the steak and eggs which was actually in a skillet. It was not wonderful but the Muer eggs benedict looked, and I was told, was great. The standard eggs benedict verdict was real good, and the pancakes with strawberries and cream too. The apple wood bacon sides quite tasty as well. There were three adults in our party and we all indulged in the 2 hour mimosa service. These were nice and our server kept them coming as needed. We would definitely return here for another Sunday brunch.

    Always exceptional food, great atmosphere for both lunch and dinner. Though I prefer to go there for dinner, the costs may be too high for some; I would recommend going for lunch instead so that you can still enjoy this exceptional restaurant.

    For the first time, we got a table by the window & it made all the difference. So romantic! The food was delicious but so expensive. We enjoyed the mussels & ceviche, the whitefish & trout & creamed spinach. The wine choices were good, but pricey but the service was very competent. A pet peeve remains: why don't they serve the original recipe of the beans & really, such a skimpy serving? That is a very tacky message to loyal customers.

    I heard good things about Joe Muer & decided to come here for my anniversary... My wife & I were disappointed in the service (our waitress got our order wrong a few times) also, the food was not up to par... The filets were over cooked, the chopped salad tasted like it came right out of a bag and dumped on the plate. We also requested a booth a while before our reservation & did not get it. Will not be coming back. Eddie Merlot & Ocean Prime blow this place away.

    I was impressed with the varierty of food on the menu. The service was excellent from the hostesses to the bus boys. The food was prepared exactly as requested. Our waiter was very professional, knowledgelable, courteous and very patient. If you looked around as though you had a question or needed something, any nearby staff came to your assistance. They perform as a team. I and my guests loved our entire experience. I made the right choice to celebrate my birthday.

    Sat outside on a beautiful Michigan afternoon, looking out at the Detroit River and into Windsor, Ontario. We had a leisurely lunch, a couple of bottles of Sancerre, and some delicious food, the perch for me. What really enhanced our meal was the well chosen music, perfect for Detroit and the setting outside. The volume was also just right.

    We had a great time at Joe Muer celebrating my husband's birthday. Food was delicious and as I requested on Open Table they brought dessert out with happy birthday written in chocolate while the pianist played happy birthday. Our server CJ was also very attentive charming and great at his job. I only wish our table was positioned more toward the view of the water. We off at an angle and couldn't see the Detroit river. I'm not sure if I needed to make that a request also but next time I will. Overall wonderful experience.

    Arrived for 6:30 reservations and requested specific table for 2 on the patio so we could overlook the waterfront & have a great view of the band America playing on the riverfront in front of the RenCen. We were told our table was occupied at the time and we could wait in the bar, no sooner had we sat at the bar the head waiter came over & told us he was clearing our table & he would be back to seat us in a few minutes. We were seated and had the best view of the waterfront & stage from our little 2 top table on the corner of the balcony. We had impeccable service all evening from our waiter. We dined & drank an array of Appetizers all evening, and each had a wonderful dessert to top off the night. Absolute perfection!

    Service was attentive but a little rushed. Waitress was friendly. Great location. We were seated directly. Food was Ok but expected better for the price. Chowder was luke warm. Had the Delmonico which was very tasty but slighty over cooked and over sauced. Companion walleye was excellent. Desert very good. Drink over priced. Extensive wine list but did not partake. Overall OK but expected better.

    We celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on Saturday and so glad we went to Joe Muer's. They made us feel welcome from the start and gave us a beautiful view of the riverfront. Our waitress Jacquelyn was friendly, funny and informative. She recommended drinks and food, which we were glad we followed. I had the Lamb Chops and my wife had the Filet and Lobster. So much food! For dessert we got the chocolate and peanut butter cake, and they beautifully decorated it to wish us Happy Anniversary. We will definitely be returning. Only minor thing was that there was a 50th surprise party nearby so it got loud at times, but nothing we couldn't ignore.
