    The waiter hardly waited on us. We ordered all at the start, received our cocktails and appetizer. When the food was brought to the table, he immediately asked if it was acceptable prior to our first bite. He then rushed off. No chance to order wine with dinner. My mussels were dark orange and VERY fishy tasting. About half of them were closed. When the waiter finally returned, no questions about the uneaten mussels but he did finally ask we wanted another beverage. Really disappointing.

    They didn’t make me feel very welcomed as a party of 1. I specifically wanted a table, so I made this reservation and they still offered the bar. The server didn’t seem to be very happy or pleasant. It took at least 5 minutes for them to even greet me at my table. He also made a comment about me being there by myself.

    We arrived early and they were able to seat us quickly. Probably because it was post- football game, the dining room was much noisier than usual. Still enjoyed the meal and the drinks. Our waitperson, Jordan, made an excellent recommendation for wine. He thought it would better suit my meal than the wine I was considering. He was correct and his advice was greatly appreciated.

    We’ve always loved Dusty’s Wine Bar. Haven’t been since pre Covid. Unfortunately we were disappointed. While the food was good, we weren’t thrilled with the menu. The appetizer was just ok - seemed a bit soggy. Had to send a drink back twice (flat tonic - finally said never mind). Maybe the waiter was inexperienced, but didn’t seem real attentive. Had to ask for more water. Rattled off desserts (viewing a menu would have been nicer) while holding our food too closely to his mouth that he was having packaged up. Maybe it was just an off night. Maybe good help is just hard to find these days. Not feeling to need to race back anytime soon.

    I've been dining at Dusty's Wine Bar for many years and the pandemic has done it no favors. Food prices are sky high, the menu has been slimmed down (12 entrées total), no daily specials that night, a less than creative cocktail menu, and tiny dessert offering (3 desserts plus Vanilla Gelato). Our young server didn't seem thrilled to be working on a Friday night which set a bad tone for our dinner. I had to ask for bread after the entrées arrived and like others said there was no parting brownie bites after paying the bill as there have been in years past. While the food was good, I won't be back anytime soon until I see menu improvements.

    What happened to dinner rolls after ordering? What happened to the mini-brownies that used to come with your bill? What made a dinner at Dusty’s seem special has evolved into just ordinary. Not bad, but not special.

    Everything was perfect! Excellent cocktail, truffle fries appetizer was well balanced and good size for a few people. Little things like the fried capers on Caesar salad make it feel a little different than everyone without being too weird. Skirt steak cooked exactly as requested. Service was friendly, prompt, and very polite. Dusty’s is consistent and exceptional. Our favorite place in Lansing area and one of the tops in Michigan.

    The service was good our waitress was very kind and prompt. We got our food and drinks quickly and she was very accommodating. The ambiance is nice and all and the shop is cool. The food on the other hand was not good at all in my opinion. The cheese penne was quite bland and without any flavor, salad was lackluster, the Burrata was super yucky (and we ordered 2 of the Burrata unfortunately!). The truffle frites were good though. Overall I was disappointed with the food and for that reason alone I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant nor would I return. We even bought some “fresh baked” cookies from the front counter and I was so sad to find out they were stale when we got home!! So lame. Like I said the service was great, no complaints there. The food was bad and really needs some work. We had a party of 7 & everyone agreed.

    This was the first time dining at Dusty Cellar. We would skate come to the wine tasting but always wanted to done. This was the best dining experience we have ever had and we will for sure do it again. Our waitress was very sweet and kind, sure did an amazing job with being patient with us and have great food/ wine suggestions.

    We’ve eaten here several times over the years and the food is often a mixed experience. This time I had the gazpacho, which was excellent, and the mussels, which were very over cooked and so salty that I only ate about half. My husband’s steak was just okay, cooked correctly but nothing spectacular. The drinks were excellent (try the habanero margarita!) and the service was too. I feel like I’d enjoy this place more if we stuck to drinks and maybe desserts, which are also great.

    Went to Dusty’s for MSU graduation. Don’t let the strip plaza entrance fool you. It was a great little restaurant with great food and a nice atmosphere - nothing fancy, but comfortable and pleasant. Didn’t get a chance to go thru the wine store, but looked fabulous
