    I had one of the most disappointing birthday dinner. We went on a normal Tuesday night at 6:30 pm wearing semi casual clothes (dresses for the women, collared shirt for the men). Our hostess first took us to a table with dark lighting with no water view at all (which the restaurant is known for) so we kindly asked if we could have a different table since there were not much people and the water view seat was open. But the hostess told us the men were wearing open toed shoes and was not following the restaurants guideline. We talked with the manager since it only said business attire and he agreed to take us to a water view table where we were redirected to an isolated table with a view of little water, a parking building, and constantly opening and closing door for the waiters’. Fortunately, we were able to see other customers coming in and taken to their seats. Funny enough we saw people wearing zipped hoodies, graphic T-shirt, baggy cargo shorts, short blue jeans, tennis shoes, and even sandals (And please see the photos where the clothing rules are presented in the front of the restaurants 🤔) We may have not met their standard but so did other people. We were the only ones that was isolated while others were enjoying the view. It was not fair that we were treated like that and such a pity since the waiter and the food was good. So, my advice to people who are going - you can wear anything BUT open toed shoes.

    Service was excellent. The dover sole I looked forward to all week, tasted mushy, the rest of the group had barramundi which was fabulous . We sent the dover sole back. Hope to try it again. Wendy Lucid

    My wife and I have been to Joe Muer many times. The food, drinks, and desert are always top notch. I will say that their online menu seems to be outdated so be prepared to see things that are not listed on their in-restaurant menu.

    The food was outstanding. Registration process was fine except I don’t like giving my credit card. if open table skips compromise then your credit card could be compromised too. Our waiter may have been having a bad day but he didn’t need to share that with us.

    First of all, the atmosphere was awesome including the amazing view. We could watch boats and ships traveling up and down the river. From our table, we could see Canada which I thought was super cool. This was my first visit ever to Detroit. Next the seafood was absolutely incredible. We started off with shrimp cocktail which was some of the best I’ve ever had. Next, we had Lobster Bisque— again it was super tasty. After finishing the bisque, I cleaned up the bowl with bread. I can’t let good bisque go to waste! Next course, we had the special, halibut with scallops and crab cake on top of green beans and carrots. Loved every bite. Also, the jalapeño margarita was super refreshing and excellent flavor. Next time I’m in Detroit, I’ll be back.

    I truly enjoyed celebrating my birthday here! Everything about this restaurant was great. The place was clean and smelled good. The staff and greeter was very nice. Our server Tamika was awesome, the staff also worked as a team in bringing and cleaning up our food. The food was fresh and awesome. Then we also had dessert and that was really good as well. Great atmosphere with really nice people.🙂

    We have been to Joe Muer many times and have enjoyed the food and service always. Let me start by saying that the food and service were great as always. The Somm was also excellent and we had a great wine for our Anniversary which we were celebrating. My only complaint and this is the first time we have had a complaint with Muer’s is that we made a 7 pm reservation but did not get seated until almost a half hour later. We were given a table next to the piano bar which was very loud and it was difficult to hear ourselves talk. I went to the front desk and explained that this was not acceptable. We were told that they were busy, which we understand, but if we did not like the next table it could be more waiting. We were given a six top table and it was fine though in the bar area so still loud. In the future we will be requesting the other side of the restaurant as we do not go there for the piano bar. Again the service by Brian, Giovanni and the Somm, Eric was excellent as was the rest of the staff.

    I was very much looking forward to the entire experience: the ambiance, the food, the service etc. Out of that entire beautiful place, we were seated in the corner near the kitchen, bar and where they keep the water bucket. I felt like I had less of a customer experience and more staff. No view except for staff coming and going by our table headed in and out of the kitchen. The service was outstanding, the food very good, the pricing is really high, but you know that.. but my experience was diminished by my seat.

    Food was good as usual. Waitress was very dishonest. We asked for substitutions because of food allergies. She made suggestions then charged us extra for them. Eg flounder with crab legs was $125.00. Rip off. I go the joe Muir’s a lot. I am now reconsidering and may eliminate this restaurant from my list

    Food & service were excellent however our table was not. Disappointed that my husband and I were sat in the bar section in front of an area where dirty plates were being placed/scraped directly behind us. I made this reservation weeks in advance for our anniversary and noted that on the reservation. Felt that it wasn’t taken into consideration at all and that our table was for someone who just walked in with no reservation.

    Awful experience - so awful that we actually left our table and went to Prime+Proper instead (which was amazing btw). When making the reservation for our 12th wedding anniversary, we requested a window seat. They first sat us right next to the bar behind a pillar. We asked to be moved by a window. The manager explained “window seats are for parties of 5 or more”. He then “accommodated” our seating preference with a corner table next to a mirror, across from the windows. A table so cramped that several people bumped into it, nearly spilling my husband’s water on his lap. We then quickly noticed couples of 2 sitting at window seats with plenty of extra empty tables (I counted 4). I asked again, “what does a person have to do to get a window seat? You told us 5 or more and this is clearly not the case”. The manager attempted to say he did not that say, before correcting himself by saying “I meant the booths by the window”. I asked, “ why can’t we be sat at one of the empty tables by the window, it was in our reservation request.” He stated, “people book reservations MONTHS in advance and we organize that way, you only booked 1 week ago”. Very condescending, and I hardly believe people are booking so far in advance, Joe Muer is not so exclusive to where that is necessary. He offered to move us outside in the elements, which I was not fond of and said he’ll give us a minute to think about it and come back. He NEVER returned. Tables by the window remained empty and they refused to seat is at one per our reservation request. It was awful customer service/care/consideration. Gave us the worst seats in the house x2, and he never returned to confirm our decision. Thank goodness we could make a last minute reservation elsewhere and was able to enjoy our anniversary dinner. I would give Joe Muer zero stars if I could. Not at all accommodating and their reservation system is trash. Joe Muer should remove preference request from the system if they won’t honor it.
