    Very good option. Excellent River and downtown Windsor views. The swordfish was excellent. Their sommelier will help ensure great wine pairing. Only issue is parking and pathetic signage at the Renaissance Center to get their.,otherwise, this would be an overall five-star rating.

    We got exactly the experience that we were hoping to get. The service, the view, the food were all wonderful. Definitely a "special occasion" rather than a "every day" experience, but we really appreciated the server's honesty and his recommendations, as well as the sommelier's. A fantastic way to spend our anniversary.

    Was very excited to go to Joe Muer’s for our first time. Disappointed! For price point it was not as expected. Calamari was tough, gumbo excessively salty, and my entree came out like-warm! Staff not particularly friendly particularly manager that roams the room. Just not a very welcoming atmosphere from hostess to servers to Mgr. Will likely not return. Expectations were high.

    It was good but I was disappointed that scallop was not on the menu. Only available as add on. Joe Muer needs a more modern menu. Too old school even for me who is not young. It will be great to split the menu to attract old and young, like dishes from Barda. The restaurant needs spectrum of clients. Please use less butter, the fresh food has its own flavor. It does not need garlic and butter and cream to enhance it. Go with olive oil or give the people the option which oil to smother their food with. And please lessen the sugar in desserts. Let the sugar level build up gradually on the pallet. The surge of sugar level really is not healthy. I like Joe Muer and I hope they modernize to better.

    We just felt a little put-off from the moment we arrived. Not many smiles from staff members and we felt as though we were bothering them. It just made us a little uncomfortable. The server was friendly but it took a while to get drinks. And, a while for our after dinner drinks. Oysters were amazingly fresh. However, for us the customer service is what sets a restaurant apart and for the customer service we received, we most likely won’t return.

    Not my first time there, but I have to say that I wasn’t very pleased with the waiter. He seemed like he was just ready to go home and I felt uncomfortable being there with my date. As I was asking him questions about the menu, he started walking away which I thought was very unprofessional. I spend hundreds of dollars in that place to have poor service. If I can’t get 5 star service at a high end restaurant then i wouldn’t want to come back again.

    I dined alone. The food and service were very good. Nice place. I spent over $100 and paid in cash. Thr bill included a 20% service charge already added in and totalled. Restaurants should not decide the tip. The customer should always decide what this discretionary amount should be. I simply refuse to eat anywhere that does this and will not be back for that reason alone.

    have been going to Joe Muer since 2015 when we moved from Boston to Detroit. We always celebrate special occasions and Night out with dinner at the restaurant. i and my wife made reservations through open table for 6:15 pm on 10/30 as we were going to DSO, i made a request to sit by the window overlooking the river. well the hostess gave us a table next to person playing piano when I complained about the noise she became irate and told us to wait even though there were 2 both open right next to the window which she said were for more than 2 persons, well we were seated in the middle of the restaurant meanwhile 2 couples came shortly and they were seated in the booth. After finishing the meal i politely asked the hostess about seating at which she became very irate and said" its not guaranteed" Customers come to your restaurant to enjoy, fist of all they should be greeted with just a smile and it doesn't hurt to accommodate a special request when clearly one is able to do that . Also it doesn't hurt to be courteous and welcoming , there was no good evening or thankyou form the hostesses. I believe your staff needs proper training in etiquettes and how to treat customers. I will be glad to elaborate further.

Safety precautions

  • Cleaning & sanitizing

    • Surfaces sanitized between seatings
    • Common areas deep-cleaned daily
    • Sanitizer or wipes provided for customers
  • Screening

    • Sick staff prohibited in the workplace
