This past week my wife and I had a most pleasant dinner at Forest. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and the timing of the meal. I chose the branzino. It was cooked perfectly, and to my surprise, the quinoa was a great complement. My wife started with the fried egg classic. She was blown away, mentioning it several times over the next few days. This was followed by the pasta with short ribs, which was well prepared(al dente) and had a nice depth of taste. We chose the baked alaska for dessert. It was fine, but nothing special.
Over the past decade we have eaten at Forest Grill on a number of occasions. This was the best meal yet. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.
Forest Grill is always amazing. It’s small, quiet with delicious food and excellent service. Can’t wait to go again
Our server was awful. He was not helpful with explaining the menu even when questions were asked. He acted annoyed for the entire service. His attitude sucked!!!!! The food And ambiance were both good, although the drinks were overpriced. Overall the service ruined this experience for me and my dinner guests.
We came for restaurant week and loved the food and service. The room is beautiful!
Loved the Branzino and Farm Egg. As always, the food was fresh.
Excellent food and service! Expensive so more for a special occasion.
Very disappointed with the meal we received during restaurant week. Short ribs is supposed to be a hearty meal. We received very very little meat rolled up in dough. The side was a cooked onion! I had to order potatoes on top of it and they came out cold and had to be sent back. Our whole table received short ribs and were all disappointed. I spent $75 and was not impressed at all! I would have enjoyed a steak for less money elsewhere.... Very misleading on portion sizes. If you unrolled the short ribs from the dough you would probably be receiving 2 oz of meat
Food is always creative and delicious. Sophisticated atmosphere, attentive service. . . hands down a favorite!
Service was great! The manager also generously comped us for an expired gift certificate. Thank you so much!
Forest gets it right every time we dine there. The hostess was welcoming and quickly seated us. The wait staff is engaging and very knowledgable on the menu and wine selections. The black rice appetizer is fantastic as are all of the salads. The pasta is fresh, light and perfectly prepared.
What a Gem. Our waitress, Lisa, was awesome. The wine list superb and NOT over priced. The food got better as the courses came along. I am a huge fan of this place. It was my first visit and definitely NOT my last.
Ivan our server was fantastic ! We come here at least once a week for a guaranteed, wonderful meal!
Our waitress Emily was fabulous!!!
Great food and great service. Loved the mushroom soup and short rib cannelloni
Very loud....we were sitting under a speaker and between the music and the crowd...it was difficult to enjoy the company of our guests.
First time back now that it is Forest! Loved it. Food was wonderful, service was top-notch! Looking forward to a return visit!
We haven't been here since right when it switched from Forest Grill to just Forest. We were super impressed with the food and service. Highly recommend trying the tasting menu. Glad to see the Forest is back!
Unique prep. Wonderful presentation. Great dinners.
Service was excellent.
Food creatively prepared and tasty.
Spare ribs were well enjoyed by our guests.
One Trout dinner was undercooked.
Never asked after served if it was to my liking.
Could only eat a portion of an expensive meal.
Ambience is good.
Table spacing is well done.
Appreciate valet parking
Greeters were delightful and professional young people.
A little pricey, however amazing meal! Definitely recommend for special occasions
This is currently our favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food is fabulous and eclectic! Creative masterpieces! The waitstaff is also awesome! Our favorite server is Ashley! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and always has a smile on her face.
Everything was delicious! Our server was knowledgeable about all the dishes, and attentive without being overbearing. Definitely not for the budget conscious, but absolutely splurge worthy.
Early dinner made into special occasion by great food and lovely atmosphere
Service wonderful. Food so salty I could barely eat it. Brussels sprouts and feta salad was all feta and extremely salty
The food and the service was excellent. Unique small dishes very finely prepared. The restaurant has a great ambience. We will definitely be back! Ps. The farm egg is amazing!
Staff is fabulous. So informative, personable and gracious. Went with specials, ok, can’t even remember what they were. Had a nice evening but thought it was very expensive for a mediocre meal.
Christmas dinner with colleagues
Wonder experience - again! Ceative cusine and relaxed ambiance
Great wine list. Best to double check their knowledge though. And prices here are higher than others in town by nearly 10%.
Excellent set up with friendly staff. We tried chefs choice and enjoyed it but it was lot of food. Next time we will pick and choose from the Variety of dishes on menu. Planning to go again with friends.
We went to Forest for a birthday celebration. The service was perfect as always. The food was excellent and special. This is not like other restaurants. The planning and preparation of each dish is above and beyond. One of our favorite places to celebrate a special occasion.
We went to Forest for a birthday dinner. As a party of 6, only 2 meals were good. One was cold, another totally flavorless, and two just average. Disappointing for a $1000 dinner.
I always enjoy Forest. Creative dishes, house made pasta and enough variety to please everyone. The tasting menu makes for a special evening. Ordering off the menu never disappoints.
Fantastic food. Wonderful server and staff. So friendly.
We had a fabulous dinner on a cold dreary Monday evening! It was warm, cozy and inviting and an enjoyable experience. The menu items we chose were perfect, starting with their signature egg and pumpkin soup! The best pumpkin soup I have ever tasted and of course the egg, which I have had before was fantastic!. My Bronzino was perfectly prepared and the quinoa served on top was a wonderful addition! I absolutely love this restaurant and am never disappointed!
Best Dirty in town! Black rice like crack!! Birthday dessert OMG
My favorite restaurant in Michigan. Wonderful staff.
This was great food, the special with Black truffles in sauce and on top of spaghetti was wonderful. The squash ravioli with scallops was luscious. Black rice and shredded brussels sprouts, those are something to order. Curry cauliflower was very nice.
The most delicious food! Truly amazing! Great service, lovely ambiance! Forest is hands down one of the city’s best restaurants!
