Food lacked flavor, we were seated next to a party of 20 it was loud and disruptive server was not informative she asked us what kind of salad or soup we wanted with our meal as if it came with the meal. Which it do not and we wouldn’t have gotten them had she not made it seem that way

Our server was pleasant, however forgot to bring our soup before main course. Recovered nicely though by bringing the soup to “taste” at no charge. Overall the staff was very attentive and on time. Table side Spanish coffee was outstanding. We prefer our crab legs steamed. Had a good experience but didn’t leave wanting to return in the near future.

The food was a little over-rated. Ambiance and view were of course, very nice and well-worth the drive if you're coming out from the suburbs. We went for lunch, so perhaps the dinner menu is better, but the Ceviche had absolutely no flavor...very bland. The waitress was very nice and attentive, but couldn't answer all the questions we had about the menu (not a big deal for us). Nice place for client meetings or a happy hour/first date. Other than that, wouldn't go out of my way to go there again - I've had better seafood at more affordable restaurants.

I was taking my girlfriend on a date to your restaurant for her birthday. We were looking forward to the experience because neither one of us had been to Joe Muers in the Renaissance Center. Unfortunately, we did not have a good dining experience at all. We first asked the waiter for 2 Caesar Salads, when we ordered them we did not know they weren't on the menu. So the waiter proceeded to provide the 2 salads which included some shredded lettuce, a few croutons, and some parmesan cheese (salad dressing on the side). The salads looked skimpy and just thrown together. We then asked the waiter about the salads because they did not look appetizing and he said they weren't on the menu and that the chef just put a salad together.

We then proceeded to order our main course in which I had salmon and rice pilaf and my girlfriend had calamari and french fries. The rice pilaf was horrible. It was hard and not very good. I was totally embarrassed and upset with the dinner at Joe Muers because I wanted the experience to be a special evening for my girlfriend's birthday.

My bill came to $175 and some change and I gave a 15% tip to the waiter which came to a total of $201 and some change. I am really unhappy with my dining experience at Joe Muers Restaurant.

We always love Joe Muer restaurant. An old-time Detroit staple, now in its stunning waterfront location in downtown Detroit's Renaissance Center. This time we got wild-caught South African lobster tail and wild-caught brook trout. The crab balls appetizer was excellent as always, as was the immense and tasty coconut cake for dessert. Their wine list has a nice variety, although my wife thinks it could have a larger number of Chardonnays. We will be back on the next special occasion, or even sooner!

Our dinner was March 31, 2018.
The service was exceptional, the place setting was superior. Food was delicious, started with our app favorite from the old place, deviled crab balls. Tried new entrees cooked just right, presentation pleasing. And dessert, too much to finish. Her's coconut and mine chocolate.
It was good to see and talk to Miguel, a familiar face from a previous life. He still remembers.
Valet parking easy and quick, don't forget to get your parking slip validated at Joe's desk.
Thank you for a great experience.

Food was very delicious and cheesecake with Carmel was very tasty. Service in front when coming in could have been better but the hostess was nice. Our waitress was nice but her service was not too great. Waited long for requests forgot to bring things was not crowded so not sure what was the issue. Overall the food was good would come back.

Very good food quality, but not quite excellent. Our get together was enjoyable and our server Timothy was informative and friendly without being intrusive. Our table near a busing station was not the best, especially with multiple staff standing there and talking. But otherwise we had a great time.

The food was good. The atmosphere was very stuck up and our server was horrendous. He only came to our table to take our order and to deliver our food. The hostess was also rude. Also, with such an extensive dress code...why did I see every other person in there wearing a sweatshirt? Wasn’t worth $200 to me.

The food was extraordinary. The server was annoying and spoke with an uncalled for formality and “hauteur.”

Piano was too loud and intrusive in a room with live acoustic.

However my dinner was sublime tasting.
