Wayne was our server and he was exceptional with his attention to details and recommendations. We had a beautiful table with view of the Windsor skyline. We mostly had shellfish and the lobster. All was sumptuous. The pianist was a welcome addition and also excellent. Thank you.

It was a beautiful way to end the perfect weekend for my and my lady. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. The only issue I had was with the crab cake it had some shells inside other than that great first time experience will definitely be back.

Food was just ok. Calamari was salty.Salad was drenched in salad dressing and my husband’s salad had a bug (looked like a gnat fly) crawling on his plate. Lobster Bisque soup was underwhelming. I ordered the short ribs. The presentation was great and they were tender but not seasoned well. It was loud in the restaurant. Definitely not a place for a romantic dinner. My husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary and it was not a good experience for us 😔. The best part of the experience was the wine and desserts.

Waiter brought the wrong drink. Brought it back & returned with the correct drink.
Mashed potatoes were cold, waiter brought fresh hot mashed potatoes upon request. Waiter forgot to bring my salad, brought it after being reminded, after the meal had been served. He removed the salad from the check without being asked.
20% gratuity was added to the check ? I was not aware this was policy.

Wonderful meal in a beautiful restaurant. The only complaint I have is with the “discounted” parking, which turned out not to be discounted at all. I inserted the validated ticket from the restaurant staff into the machine and still had to pay full price.

This was the best meal we have ever had! It was beyond our expectations. We ordered the house special fish as well as the filet mignon and Alaskan lobster tail. It was filled with flavor! The sushi was also very delicious! Will definitely be coming back.

The filet was so tender, juicy & cooked to perfection! Lobster tail was delicious. Lester on the piano was awesome! Order a lemon drop martini. It’s the best! This has been my favorite restaurant for years.

Food was generally inferior and of poor value. Meal started with microscopic oysters. Main and side plates less than exciting. Would not return except for drinks at the bar.

I understand that you have a dress code, I only wish that you would put the full dress code in the open table reservation email. I came for lunch but wore sandals with my long pants as a gentleman; which I find normally acceptable. I had to leave the restaurant and go find a pair of shoes. Better clarification would have been great, since I made the reservation through open table and never visited your website. Other than the lack of cleared clarification of your dress code on my confirmation email everything else was fabulous.

My husband and I had a great time at Joe Muer for our 1year anniversary! Our server was Francine, and she was amazing and very thorough! We were constantly checked on by other staff members and who I believe was the manager. I had to tip her on top of the gratuity! We will definitely be back!

Salmon was exceedingly fishy (tasted like old fish). Had to ask multiple times for refills on water and glasses of wine. No refills on coffee, apparently. Busser insisted dishes we were still eating off of be removed. Gratuity for lousy service was included in the check. Atmosphere was pretentious, not authentically sophisticated.

Red Lobster would have been better.
POOR food quality .
Clam chowder looked like it came from the bottom of the pot .
Lobster bisque had tiny pieces of lobster.
Food sat under the lights and was dried out.
Lobster corn dogs - even a dog wouldn’t eat them .
Sent food back -
Entrees were frozen and reheated
No decent cook would send food out like that.
I must say the shrimp and oysters were good.
This place is OUTDATED -OVERPRICED.
TOURIST TRAP - DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY HERE.
GO SOMEWHERE ELSE !!!!

Waitress super inattentive. Had our food cleared out by the bus boys about 30 minutes before she came back and checked on us. Also very rude- made lots of comments like “why’s the tablecloth folded like this, did you make a mess?” and asking if we were eating each other’s food. Food was pretty good overall but service really made it a bad experience. Will not be returning for a while.
