What an amazing place for special celebrations! They read my message I had typed when making the online reservation and treated my mother and I VERY special. (When asked what restaurant she wanted to go to, to celebrate her recovery from a months worth of hospital visits/stays, she didn't hesitate to say Joe Muer's!) So special that the waiter presented to both of us, a delicious glass of champagne, on the house, in honor of our celebration. This was my first time at Joe Muer's but will NOT be my last! It was a fantastic evening that all the staff made it feel even more special...Thank You!

We had a wonderful dinner. My only complaint would be the overall cost. I realize when dining here it's not going to be a bargain. But, four people with 1 drink per person.....well I felt the overall bill was a bit high. Food was outstanding!

Delicious food all around. We were seated tucked right next to the piano. It was nice music but SOO loud and difficult to have much conversation amongst the four of us due to that noise as well as everyone else trying to talk over it. Also, piano player was constantly on his phone texting. Very unprofessional.

Thank goodness, Joe Muer's was resurrected! The seafood/fish dishes are varied and delicious, especially, the stuffed barramundi. Fabulous views of the Detroit River and great attentive friendly service by Keith. Parking is validated partially. It is a fine dining and expensive experience.

Great meal, great service! I enjoyed complimentary Bread Basket, Smoked Whitefish Pate and the infamous Joe Muer White Bean relish. My guest had Mussels and I had Oysters Rockefeller for appetizers. We shared a large Martha's vineyard salad and as entrees, she opted for the New York Strip and I had the Lobster/Crab stuffed Berrimundi, we shared Blue Crab/Cheddar potatoes..........so Good! Thanks Joe Muer Seafood for a great meal!

My wife and I decided to try Joe Muir Seafood Detroit the other weekend. The restaurant was very nice inside with a nice bar, raw bar and various seating amenities. The wait staff was dressed in white tuxedo coats and red bow ties. Our waitress was Amanda and she was fantastic; I would highly recommend asking for her. She provided samples of wines to help with our decision making process and oysters to try before ordering them. Excellent wine selection (ask for the reserve list if you would like some very nice wines) and liquor selection. My wife had one of the specials (sorry can't remember what the fish was...similar to dover sole) and it was very good; buttery and rich. I had the Ahi Tuna and while the dish was good, I was expecting more from the dish. It lacked a salt and general seasoning. Again, while the dish was good, it left me wanting more.

Overall, it was a nice dinner for my wife and I. While the dinner was very expensive, (over $300 w. $100 bottle of wine), I would try the restaurant again. I think Amanda made up for the slight lack of flavor of the food.

Loved the venue....vibrant! Person at desk was a bit abrupt. Before my husband could even take his coat off she firmly told him he had to remove his hat. :(Which he was going to do.

Staff was helpful. Had a big party and made a point of telling us ahead of time.
Fun night

Appetizer, drinks and salad were great. My dinner was perfection! but my sister's was not very good. Scallop was missing, then they brought the wrong one. Dish was nothing like it was described, almost tasteless. We would go back again because we think if she would have gotten what she originally wanted she would have been happy.
