    We dine in the Birmingham, Bloomfield area 3-4 times a week. Mitchell's is always very, very good. Consistently excellent service. Fish and seafood entrees (we've had many) are always fresh and prepared as requested. It's a great location, easy parking or use valet. Mitchell's is our "go to" restaurant in Birmingham.

    We have been dining at Mitchell's for several years. Our previous experience was at the Livonia restaurant and we suspected an isolated reduction in quality. On this occasion there we're 4 of us. The restaurant was not busy. We soon ordered drinks which took approximately 15 minutes to arrive. At that time we ordered appetizers ( calamari and gumbo which were both good) which also took a ridiculous time to arrive. For the entrees I ordered scallops Shang Hai . The scallops were over-cooked and tasteless with a soy sauce that tasted of salt and sugar. My wife ordered the seafood paella which was only fair, being unlike anything we had tasted in Spain. After 2 poor, expensive experiences at Mitchell's we are unlikely to try again.

    My husband and I made reservations with an out of town business guest from Europe on Saturday and was mortified to enter and find a cheap plastic tarp dividing the restaurant floor to ceiling due to construction. I would have not booked if I had known. A $160 meal should not include gazing at a plastic tarp all evening. Mitchell's is usually one of our favorite places for fish and seafood, but what an embarrassment bringing an out of town guest after boasting about the restaurant. NOT A GOOD IMPRESSION!

    No draft beer that night. Did not work. We seemed like an after thought to waitress. By that I mean we told her we were ready to order. She asked for our order when we put in appetizer order and then we had to call her to table to order. For price I expected her to hover over us. Restaurant wasn't busy either to not get that type of service

    The food and service were excellent. The only reason I gave a less than outstanding rating in categories Ambience and Noise Level, is because currently there is a renovation taking place, so the middle section of the restaurant was closed off (with what looked like black garbage bags...couldn't something a little nicer be found to hang up??). That made the section we were in (first section) seem crowded and the noise seemed to reverberate more. Hope we'll be informed when the reno is done, so we can go back and enjoy it 100%.

    The seafood was good, the sides were not (red skin smashed potatoes and asparagus). The side salad with goat cheese and maple dressing was great. They brought me a free desert for my birthday, good thing it was free because it was frozen in the center.

    We had to ask to order drinks and then the wait for the drinks was long and the restaurant was not busy at all. Our waitress was very pleasant but slow. Our food was very good and the desserts were very good but huge which wasn't a problem last night since we were a group of 9.

    Very fresh seafood well-prepared. A friendly, neighborhood atmosphere. One issue - it took a while to get our soup/salad course and two minutes later someone came by with our entrees. They took them away seeing that we were obviously not ready to eat them. They must have put them under a heat lamp, though, because when we got the food my husband's steak tips that were supposed to be medium rare were quite well done. So that was disappointing. But generally quite good!

Had to have another server bring butter tower to table for crab. Server never returned to ask us how anything was during meal. Very disappointing.

    WHEN YOU WALK INTO A RESTAURANT AND YOU ARE TOLD WE HAVE NO RESERVATION-THAT DOESN'T START THE EVENING OFF WELL. I HAPPENED TO HAVE THE CONFIRMATION FROM OPEN TABLE ON MY PHONE AND HAD TO SHOW IT TO THE GIRL AT THE FRONT. UNTIL I SAID I WAS GOING TO WRITE TO THE GENERAL MANAGER OF THE RESTAURANT, SHE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN DOING ANYTHING FOR ME. WAS I MORTIFIED SINCE I HAD MY THE RESERVATION FOR 6 PEOPLE- OF COURSE. AND IT SET A POOR TONE FOR THE EVENING. THE WAITER WAS GOOD AND FOOD WAS FINE. THEN WHILE THERE I GOT A EMAIL SAYING I WAS A NO SHOW. I WENT UP TO THE FRONT DESK AND SHE STILL ACTED LIKE SO WHAT. NOT GOOD
