We were in Detroit for an evening. We were Not disappointed! Our Waiter was Very Nice and Attentive! My Husband Had the Lamb Chops They Were Amazing! I had the white fish and Our Waiter Suggested To add the House Specialty of Stewed Tomatoes! Wow That was Absolutely the right Idea! Delicious!
We will return on our next visit! Also A Beautiful View of the moon over the Bridge Just lovely!

Overall it was very good dinner however the grouper (daily special) was too oily and salty. For $49 dish, I would expect much better. i am not sure of the grilled selections but the souce in general was too oily for my taste. Maybe it should be served on the side or added on the table since not everyone likes too much souce and definitely no one needs that much salt.
Again the food tasted pretty good in general (bread, soup, desert) but I think our expectations were too high based on reviews we read and we were slightly disappointed. Maybe our selections were the exceptions to the rest of the menu.
On the other hand, the great service and thoughtful desert presentation (with writing of our anniversary) were the highlights of our special evening.
Thank you.

Our dining EXPERIENCE was Superb! This was the most flavorful meal I have ever had. The environment was very relaxing as was our Waitress. Dawn was calm with positive energy. Very knowledgeable about the menu and items. She answered all our questions when ordering. Everything came to our table with excellent timing. We in no way felt we were rushed to enjoy nor leave when our dinner was complete. This was truly an experience I will NEVER forget. Thank You.

Very nice and prices weren’t crazy unless you wanted them to be, everything went very smoothly and staff wasn’t at all different to us even though we are young, definitely tipped way over 20% and felt very welcomed even though we didn’t necessarily dress the part

Not our usual haunt, but it was our first wedding anniversary so we wanted to celebrate a bit. Excellent service and the food was superb. The piano player even learned "won't you be my neighbor" on the fly after I requested it for my wife. I highly recommend the stuffed flounder with creamed spinach or the monk fish for your main course. We also had some raw oysters and the lobster corn dogs (deep fried lobster on a stick). Sounds odd, but it was awesome! We had the apple explosion for dessert (because it was the smallest dessert they had) and they customized it for our anniversary (see photo). Again... excellent. Thank you to our server Keith F. for a memorable evening.

Service was good but food is highly overrated. We were seated for iur reservation late for what seemed to be no reason. There were many available seats and no explanation. I cant see myself returning. Lots of dining options. Literally no vegetarian options. They obviously knowo the restaurant business but they arw out of touch with current trends.

Requested Medium filet mignon, and my steak came out rare/purple.
Took 10 minutes to cook the same piece of meat and waiter seemed annoyed to do so.

Would not go back

After telling the waitress that we do not eat meat, hence ordering seafood for all of our entrees. There was a sausage in one of our meals, one of the meats that is restricted In our diet. The manager came over and said was I heard you didn’t like your meal. Like he had no idea what happened, vaguely saying sorry and walked away. Will not be returning here.

Lobster bisque is ALWAYS delicious and it was again last night. The scallops are my new favorite! FYI - you get 5 and they are huge!!! IF you go crazy with all the fantastic appetizer options, you could share the scallops.

The view was beautiful but the noise level was so high we could barely have a conversation. We ordered calamari and it was mediocre at best. The croutons in the Caesar salad were like plain chunks of bread. The tomatoes in the wedge were awful. The filet mignon was very good but the fish was alittle dry..
Our server Keith was very attentive

Birthday celebration with 4 adults. Food was excellent except both my husband and my plates tasted like they had been under warmer for awhile. For these prices, I expect food straight from the kitchen. Waiter was Joe and he was 5 stars.

The food and service were top notch. However, this was a special occasion that was not treated as such. We had booked our reservation over a month in advance and had requested a window seat. This request wasn’t honored and we were given a very small table far from the window. We understand that everyone wants a seat with a view. However, it is something that should be honored when requested well in advance for something special. Thanks, Joe Muer, for making us feel like everyone else on our special day.

My first experience at Joe Muer was for my partners birthday and it was absolutely wonderful. The placement of our table was perfect. We did not feel crowded nor were we close to any other dinner parties. Also, the view of the river and the Canada skyline with the occasional ship floating by was like a fairytale. The server was both knowledgeable and hospitable and took care of everyone in the party as if he knew them personally. That added so much more quality to the experience. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone in the downtown area looking for a quality mea and service.
