My husband and I went there for our Valentines date 2 years ago and had not returned because of the quality of food in comparison to the prices. We had a lobster and fillet combo and paired it with the champagne vinaigrette salad and sushi. We were very disappointed. The fillet was not tende, as one would expect from filet and it was served with what tasted like a beef gravy and mashed potatoes that had the consistency and flavor of a bad box mix. The sushi was not fresh. We felt that Kroger store bought sushi was more palatable. The salad was our favorite part. We spent almost $100 that evening, on a combo meal that was meant for one, but due to pricing, we decided to share. In hind sight, we are thankful that. We vowed to not return. Then, this past weekend, we returned to try the brunch buffet, as the online description caught our interest. The food was good! Most of what we had, we enjoyed, but again, the items that were just so-so seemed to balance the value, leaving us questioning why it was priced at $20 a head. All in all, we continue to feel that Diamond’s renowned reputation in this area is not compatible with the food’s quality and true worth.

My wife and I went here for the dinner over the weekend (first time), and were very pleasantly surprised. Food was outstanding!! Our server was amazing, drinks were awesome, and we will now be regulars. If you haven’t been yet, you need to go.

Grilled Salmon is always good. Two in our group ordered the Pork Chop special, they were moist and delicious. The HUGE, warm Carrot Cake was a hit amongst all, one cake was enough for all of us to share but you may want to get one each, if you want to bring some home for later. There was no wait with our reservation, drinks came immediately and food was quick

We took our daughter here before she left for Colorado for the winter.
We had reservations.
It was a Thursday evening and the restaurant was about 20% full.
We were waited on by 3 different people and were told there was a party of 30 in the restaurant. ( the rest of the tables were basically empty)
Service was very slow. My wine came when my salad came way after we ordered our drinks from our first waitress.
It was disappointing as this is a favorite restaurant of ours.
We had bad service the previous time we came here as well with our friends.
We won’t be back soon.

We’ve dined at Diamonds several times now, all at lunchtime because it is out of town for us and about 1-1/4 hours away.
Food prepared is always excellent and they are quite accommodating with special requests.

Took forever to get out dinner and it was lobster tails and they clearly sat under the heated lamps too long because they were dried on the lobster shell and rubber like.

The food at Diamonds was very good. We took advantage of the Filet Mignon tips for $2 a skewer. I recommend getting the medium-rare. One of our party ordered them medium and they were a bit well done. The medium-rare tips were moist and delicious. The drinks were good too. To top the dinner off, I ordered the carrot cake. It was totally awesome and the best carrot cake I have ever had. I’ve had it before and I will have it again.

We were here to celebrate our Anniversary. We have eaten here many times and have enjoyed everything. This time We sat at a table/booth at the front entrance. The position for host/hostess is the ledge on the back of this booth. Very annoying having 4 hosts stand there, leaning over their small ledge and talk among themselves right over your table. I was facing them and felt like they were staring at us the entire time. I would never sit at that table again.
The front host “stand” needs to be moved.

We went to the Tuesday skewer special day. They offer 2.00 skewers in August, so the price was definitely right, and the steak was incredible!!

We came for lunch as part of their filet tips month long special. They were outstanding and only $2 each as long as you purchased a drink. We added a house salad that was a little light on toppings but very good. Diamonds is a great restaurant, probably the best in Howell.

We had the Sunday brunch at 10:30 AM. Not really interested in dinner options at that time of the morning such as beef stroganoff. Also not a good time for desserts, such as they were. $25 alot to pay for eggs. No option to order off a menu. I made a big mistake in getting the pre-prepared Eggs Benedict. Seems they were on bagels instead of english muffins. Whatever they were, they were impossible to cut even with a steak knife. I should have stuck with the omelet station.
This is the best restaurant in Howell, just wish there were an option for ordering ala carte or at least a reduced price for breakfast items only.

Loved our first experience at Diamonds. We never really knew who our server was, it seems like they tag team a lot. My husband also thought they should've redone the floors in the renovation, but otherwise we liked the atmosphere. Food was delicious.

If the noise level was controlled better with acoustics, this review would warrant 5 stars. Our party of 4 (set in a booth in the corner) and it was still so difficult to carry on a conversation. The entire place sounded as if patrons were having to shout in order to be heard. At times we could not even hear our server.
Parking is an issue. You have to rely on street parking or a "public parking lot" immediately behind the restaurant. If we had anyone with difficulties, it would have been a deal breaker and would have had to find another venue. This is too bad because it does not allow for accommodations for any and all patrons.

I chose the lake perch dinner with green beans and clam chowder as my sides. The perch was not good, the green beans undercooked and cold. The chowder was good.

Our family from across Michigan chose to meet at Diamonds for Sunday Brunch. We were treated to delicious, well prepared foods that included many choices. Favorites included the carved ham, eggs benedict, salad, smoked salmon, waffles and toppings. The tiny dessert choices were just right. Our server was a very nice young man who made certain that we were well taken care of. This very comfortable restaurant was just casual enough for everyone to be comfortable.

I am a salmon lover and their salmon was the best I have ever eaten! Had the Teriyaki sauce on it and could not ask for better flavor. It was cooked to perfection. Even though we live in the Lansing area we will be coming back for dinner there.
