 (Detroit)·Dined on December 30, 2017

We had the crab-stuffed flounder and the Dover sole. Both tasted great. The sole in particular was very expertly prepared, de-boned perfectly at table-side. Since it was our anniversary dinner, we also had the lava cake and the New York cheesecake. They were both wonderful. Wonderful views from our table of freighters cutting through the ice in the river. We had a great experience in all. We'd definitely recommend Joe Muer for a fantastic night out.

The food and service was excellent. Our only criticism was we were at a booth between 2 very loud tables. We probably should have asked to be moved. Did not ruin our evening. The view was awesome of the river. A little confusing finding valet.

Joe Muer Seafood in Detroit never disappoints. Was introduced to the original Joe Muer Seafood restaurant on Gratiot Ave. at E. Vernor in 1975. Being seated riverside only improves the experience! Amazing seafood and the at-your-table service exceeds expectations! (The latter from Sa'īd ("Sa-eed") this last visit!)

Checking in at the hostess counter was our only downer (It would be great to replace the numerous young people who appear behind this first stop for clientele with the type of very courteous, formal maitre d' I recall from visits at the original who made a great first impression--you knew you were someplace special.)

Perch, salmon, you can't go wrong w/the seafood here. You may want to ask the kitchen restrain from the copious amount of mashed potatoes. Desserts to die for. Enjoy!

The food and service was phenomenal! Joe, our server, was friendly and knowledgeable. Timing was good. We weren't rushed, and didn't have to wait long, either.
The troubles came after dinner. Their free shuttle left us at the FoxTheatre. I have a medical condition where I have to go to the bathroom frequently, so after the show I HAD to go. When we got out side, no shuttle. I called the driver, and she said no, there's only one trip. We were NOT made aware of this!!
We had to take a cab back to the restaurant. Then, we paid for parking at the machine. The next day my credit card was blocked after a fraudulent charge was flagged. The last place I used it was the kiosk.
So dinner was fabulous! Everything else, not so great.

We were greeted immediately
The ambiance was exceptional especially the view
The pianist played but unable to really hear from the back of room
Our waiter Scott was great. Very informative and attentive. Great wine selection
The view of the port and water was nice, creating a great date/bday celebration with my hubby
The manager was great too.

We didn’t dress as sophisticated as the other guests, nevertheless, we weren’t treated any less special

Thank you

Waldin our server was not very attentive. He did not go over the the menu, chef of the day options with us. He did not even tell us his name when asking us "what do we like to eat." That night was a very special night. I propose to my girlfriend that night. The co owner save the night by apologzing sincerely for Waldin behavior. He also gave us a bottle of champagne for the night
