    It was great, my only complaint is that they gave us a two hour time limit. If I would have known that I would have booked a later reservation.

    We were sat in a section with no server upstairs, had to ask for a server after 25 minutes. We had to write down our orders and give it to the waitress that finally helped us. Drinks took 35 minutes, 6 of our 8mesls came out on time the other two I had to go ask for after 20 minutes. It was a horrific experience.

    It was my first time trying the place and seen it had good reviews but it took 35 minutes just to be acknowledged by the hostess and once we sat down we ordered our food ( build your own pizza and banging brass shrimp) it came out super fast. Every slice of pizza we picked up had so much sauce and all the cheese would fall off, once we bit into the pizza it was raw in the middle it was so gross and it’s really hard to mess up pizza if you ask me lol I know it’s hard to find workers but it just sucked. I would def recommend supinos pizza but it’s closed mondays 🥲

    Accommodated our large reservation early. Short staffed (as everywhere) made wait times longer, but service was friendly, beer was cold and food was hot, correct, and the BBQ chicken pizza was great!

    Great service, delicious food, and energetic. The only issue I have is that they charge a fee for using a credit/debit card. As a business where every table in the restaurant was full, why charge customers to use a card? I have a serious issue when thriving business establishments charge customers for using a card. As a small business owner, this is a part of doing business. Had I known I would not have eaten here. Although the food was good and the service was excellent, I will not eat here again until they change their policy and remove the fee.

    Had pizza and drinks. The pizza was not as good as it had been previously. Very saucy... Asked for "well" vodka in our drinks, but when the bill came, we were charged for Tito's, and the waitress said that they didn't have "well" vodka. Would have been nice to know... overall convenient to Fox Theater and other downtown venues. Fun atomosphere.

    My family and I had an early meal at the brass rail the morning of the Thanksgiving day parade, and a home Detroit Lions football game. The hostess honored our OpenTable reservation, even though we were about 20 minutes early. The restaurant was busy but the tables were being turned over at a good rate. The service was excellent and the food was good. The only negative was the music was a smidge, loud at certain points, but other than that, we really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back.

    Our big group made a reservation, which the place was very crowded so we were glad we did. The food was good so long as you expect bar style food. The pizzas are the best items on the menu. This bar style restaurant rocked the essentials- plastic cups, pizzas served on the oven tray, fast moving wait staff, and a loud, LOUD, live DJ. Other reviews mentioned the noise level and I assumed they were overreactions…indeed beware of the nightclub level music! (upward of 105dB)

    Ladies night out for a concert on October 10th 2022. Service was amazing, food was delish and reasonably priced. My friend is a pizza snob and we’re planning a couples night. It has her seal of approval!!! Can’t wait to visit again.

    We made reservations was there on time and they gave our seats away because they prior reservation by other people wasn’t showing up so they just started seating people where ever it was our first time there and the only reason I would go back is because the food was good. The waitress was terrible wasn’t aware of what was going on .

    The music was so loud I had to scream the name for my reservation to the hostess. Thankfully there was a table available outside, in front of a dumpster, unfortunately. Server was very nice but service was slow. Ordered chardonnay, waited 15 mins to be told they were out, ordered another type of wine and waited 15 mins to be told they were out of that one too. Food took almost an hour to come out and was just ok. I will not be going back and would not recommend this restaurant.

    Went here before a concert at LCA with a 5pm dinner reservation. First, the music was so loud you could barely speak to the person next to you let alone the other members of your dining party. The hostess was curt and unfriendly; the waitress was better but clearly managing more tables than was possible. The pizza was better than expected and the sandwiches were good. They did get our party of 7 in and out in an hour, so that was good.
