220 is always a good go to restaurant. The menu has a little bit of everything without trying to do too much. Would definitely recommend.

We had a 3:00pm reservation and our table was ready upon arrival. Our waiter ALAN WAS AMAZING!!!!!!! My husband ordered the chops, they were the best he's ever had and worth every dollar! I ordered the NY strip, and when it came out little over, Alan noticed right away and demanded that I allow the kitchen to remake it. The Fuzzy Bubble cocktail tastes as good as it looks, I also enjoyed their namesake cocktail, and I hope to have room for dessert next time! The staff was very friendly and we have a new favorite spot! (Be sure to make a reservation day in advance. They book at least 2-3 days out)

Overall had a great time outside a lot of people walking around without masks. Also, be aware of the specials of the day. We had sticker shock of $220 for a 10 ounce steak.

This is one of my favorite places to go in Metro Detroit. I made reservations as soon as the ban was lifted. I was very disappointed to be sat in the outside, tarped off area. It was chilly and I felt like I was being set aside for more important clients sat on the inside. When I am paying that kind of money for a meal, the ambiance is part of that higher dollar food item. Other then that, food and service was excellent as always.

This was our 2nd time to 220. We absolutely loved our first experience and raved about it. The 2nd time (this weekend) was "ok". We both said if this was our first time, we wouldn't return. We may wait a bit for a 3rd return.

So glad to be able to go to 220 again!!! Amazing lunch on their new enclosed patio, warm and cozy. New lunch outstanding! Glad I got a reservation due to the 25% capacity restrictions, make them well in advance! Staff took excellent care of us. Drita at the front in a doll!

Of 4 entrees, 2 were not as described and did not taste good. 2 entrees were fine. We ate in an enclosed patio where the table was really tilted, resulting in my wine glass tipping over. Plates were cold. Server was excellent.

During a visit to 220 Merrill myself and guests enjoyed our menu and service provided by our waitress. She was wonderfully attentive and made sure to answer menu questions. Upon arrival we were equipped with menus and a form to fill out with everyone’s contact information. I’m sure this is in an effort to inform guests if they have come into contact with anyone with COVID-19 during their visit to this establishment. Once seated we noticed the tables were within 6 feet of each other and patrons were allowed to walk through the space without masks. From there we did fill out the form utilized for contact tracing (along with a short - but to the point mention about social distancing/PPE), which is a great tool in case there is an infectious person in the establishment. One of my guests is an epidemiologist, and decided to have limited time at the table where a mask wasn’t worn due to valid concerns of the social distancing standards. At the end of our meal we were approached by a manager, who’s name I cannot remember. He assured us that the restaurant was following protocols, however as stated before there were guests/tables within 6 feet and restaurant patrons not following guidelines as well. Myself and guests felt the manager was a bit combative about our observations and concerns during our course of time at 220 Merrill. I will say the service team all were equipped with masks, however there should have been more strict handling of spacing and guests allowed to frolic through the space without proper PPE. From there I also encouraged this establishment to temperature check guests upon arrival as a screening process prior to entry. Along with that management should take patron concerns seriously, especially in light of this pandemic. I do not feel our observations were taken as being valid, which left us collectively as a group disappointed in the discussion we attempted to have with management.
