    The server was great. The food was overpriced I had a nada burger it cost $18 bucks. It was not glamorous The shakes were a good price and presentation. The wings were all one temperature not mild as requested. The person that sat us down as us to be done in an hour.

    Great place ONLY for Ice cream shakes. The food was subpar. I had a So-called SMASH burger...the bun was over toasted, the meat had no flavor or distinguishable taste...not even from whatever sauce was suppose to be on there. And the waffle fries had no taste whatsoever either and their very light color makes them look like they're undercooked. Also had the Mozarella Sticks as an Appetizer, however, they didn't bring them before the meal...they brought them with the meal and they were room temperature, hard and the cheese on the inside was stiff and not chewy at all. I didn't even know that was possible. My Grandbabies had the Chicken Strips ( and what child doesn't like chicken strips?) However these were over cooked and dried out that made it a chore to eat. We left all the un-eaten food on our plates and had no reason for a Take-home box. The Shakes were good. And I was out and average of $90 for the 3 of us. Plus $25 for Parking in the nearby LOT. I did love the way that the whole Block was closed off and the other Restaurants and Stores that lined the street. A very kool urban romantic feel...even with overhead Ciesta Stringed Lights.

    Hosts were friendly and prompt, we were sat right away (we had a reservation). A server didn't come over for almost 10 minutes and tried to walk away once she took our drink orders, but we let her know we were ready to order. She was waving and talking to other people in the restaurant while taking our order, so she kept asking "anything else for you today?" and that was frustrating. She grabbed the plates from the person delivering our food and then never came back. We had to flag someone else down to get our bill. The food was good - a little too much dressing on the salad, but I'll know to ask for it on the side next time. Our food came out so fast and it was hot. I've been here before and had great service, so this could have been a one off. I would still go back to this location.

    For the group dinning experience.... If someone pays nearly 700 for a party of 14, they should be sat TOGETHER. When reseverving for the large party, it should be FULLY explained or displayed that you & your guest will order from a simplified menu not the normal restaurant menu. The group dinning menu needs to be accommodating to those who don't eat meat not just the 3 items. I would recommend to a friend for just shakes and maybe appetizers.

    Checking in was fast and great courtesy. The place had an overall great vibe with the exception of 4 employees crowded at a table near our table that were BS there. Some were sitting in the booth and others were standing making the area more crowded for people who were working and giving off the vibe like people standing over you while you ate kind of thing. Our wait staff was kind and professional. A con to the place- 2 bathrooms and this place gets busy. Overall, food was delicious and i would go again for sure.

    Only allowed 90min max, so don't plan on drinks and socializing. Mandatory 18% tip even if you didn't get good service. Small portions of the sides and add on items. Expensive.

    We have been focused on downtown Detroit restaurants this year. We went here for the Detroit Tigers Opening Day. The music was so loud I could not hear myself think. I had a glass of Rose and my husband had a beer. We shared spinach artichoke dip. It was so bad that I did NOT bother to order lunch. The hubby had a smash burger. And smashed it was. He did not eat it. They didn't even turn the music off so we could enjoy the game. 75.00 dollars later.......NEVER AGAIN. Maybe a good place for kiddos. But no self-respecting adult would be caught dead here.

    I will not be going back to this restaurant. I made a reservation for 5:45 and was told we have to wait 45 minutes to get sat. What was the point of making a reservation? I couldn’t wait that long because I had a concert to go to afterwords. We sat at the bar. The bar tender seemed rude and not happy to be working. We waiting about 20 minutes before we were even helped. Poor service.

    It was just ok. The music was INSANELY loud. Right after we sat down, as our server was greeting us the manager turned it up. The server went to ask them to turn it down but apparently the manager told her a table wanted it louder and refused to turn it down. It was way too loud and really made it hard to hear each other. Our server was very nice, but she did mistakenly bring us an appetizer we didn't order (probably because she could barely hear us order), and we told her that. She said she would get it taken off the bill but offered to leave it since they would just "throw it out anyways". We said OK and then it was still on our bill at then end. My husband mentioned that to her and she said "but I left it - I thought you wanted it". What? It was really confusing but she did get it taken off the bill so we appreciate that. Overall the food was just OK - my niece's salad had random things in it that weren't listed on the menu, and they didn't put any sauce on my husband's sandwich. I have been there before with my daughter and it was a great experience, so maybe they just missed the ball on this one.

    I saw an event on eventbrite for egg painting and thought it sounded like a fun date night and wow, it was so underwhelming. We bought tickets for Saturday and then set up the reservation like the details on eventbrite said. So we get there today and they ask what we're celebrating and I tell them we bought the egg painting tickets for today. Our server seemed shocked and demanded to see our tickets. Which like why didn't they check the reservation nor verify beforehand that we had bought tickets? The manager came by later to say they made a mistake and weren't supposed to sell tickets for the weekend and asked if we really wanted to do the egg painting then. Was I supposed to say, nah we'll come back another day after we drove out here and already paid for parking? What a weird question. Our server later told us that her other manager told her to flat out deny our tickets and say we can use them another day. The tickets said we'd get some food and a biggie shake. Spoiler alert, you couldn't pick any biggie shake. They gave us 3 options and frankly none of them looked all that great. We got the Jojo fries and mozzarella sticks for apps. They were ok. Nothing super great. Just average. For the entrees, we got a smash burger and nada burger. I have seen more appetizing burgers at mcdonalds. Also like how are you gonna charge folks like $15 for a single patty burger and not even give them fries? And then for the shakes, we got the peeps & cream and peep show. The peeps & cream was melting by the time it got to the table. I still don't understand why we couldn't get a biggie shake, you know the thing the tickets said we could get. Finally for the egg painting, I have no complaints. That was the only part I actually enjoyed. But like we could have gotten applebees and gotten better foods for less money. Like that's how low the bar is. The only thing going for it is that it's a really instagramable place. But everything else is pretty trash

    Came in with my autistic child and the restaurant was simply too loud for us to sit there. We asked the lady on the door if we could sit outside and she said no. Our server graciously accommodated us by moving us outside when we explained about my son’s (and my) sensory issues, but outdoor seating was not yet available at that point and the table was filthy and disgusting. My husband had to wait inside to bring our food out while i sat outside with my very overstimulated seven year old. The gluten free options were not clearly labeled and it wasn’t clear that there was a gluten free menu and so by the time all of this had been fixed we had been there 25 mins before we could even order. I’m not sure why the music needs to be so loud, others were also complaining. It was a horrible atmosphere.

    Awesome ambience. Also really enjoyed the music selection which was a great throwback playlist. My only complaint is that we made reservations, but then had to wait nearly 30 minutes for our table when we arrived. Our server was excellent, but the hostess was sort of rude and not helpful in giving an accurate estimate on the wait and we nearly walked away. Because we were worried about time, we only got to order basic milkshakes that only take a few minutes to prepare, but the food around us looked awesome. We had to book it to our show at the Fox and didn’t get to sample nearly as much as we would have liked to from the menu. I will definitely be back, just not when we’re on a schedule.

    I made reservations for 1:30p. we didn't get a table until after 2 something. We had an event at the Fox theater that started at 3p. The host wasn't really friendly, and she stayed texted on her phone. I felt like everything was disorganized at first! Several tables weren't cleaned off for service. Finally, I made it to our table, and the bartender was our host. She was very friendly, vibrant, and fun. Her name was Lacrissa W, I loved her energy. She made sure we had what we needed, we were a party of 6! Great service with her!!! I would definitely give it another try again to see if their are any improvements! I would like to see happy smiling faces and the hostess giving us valid information instead of being on her phone!!!! Fyi* if they don't like their jobs, then why work there?

    Chocolate milk for two children took over an hour to get after multiple reminders to our server. Same with drinks for adults. 1 one four delivered and waited half an hour for the next. Party of 8, 1 meal not delivered until all others were complete. Not sure that I would say it was our server, who was delightful and pleasant. Seems communication from floor to bar, Shakebar and kitchen is more of the issue. Atmosphere was enjoyable. Not sure that we would recommend or return…?

    The environment is a lot of fun. The menu is fun and diverse. We ordered an appetizer, two dinners a drink from the bar and a biggie shake. The quality and taste of the food and drinks were not reflective of the price point. The shake was just cheap tasting frozen yogurt with fancy toppers. I would have preferred a genuinely luxury tasting shake as opposed to a basic shake with a not so great tasting cookie and donut topper. My sister's bar drink, though ordered at the same time that we ordered everything else, didn't come to the table until she was completely done with her meal. The spinach dip tasted decent, but the chips were not very good. It did not taste or feel like $100 meal. And we did not receive $100 dinner tab service. The fun environment is there for sure... but everything else left us wanting a lot more for the price point.

    The service was horrible from entering to leaving . We feel segregated from white people to colored people while seated . One side of the restaurant were all colored and the other side was all white . The food was good but the value was over priced . Never going back again

    Hi, This is an outrageous allegation that we do not take lightly. At JoJo's, we seat based on table availability, not by the color of anyone's skin. Also, we do not approve of the language you chose to use when leaving this review. At JoJo's, we accept everyone, but if you are going to be hateful, please do not come back.

    Great food and service! We enjoyed our cocktails, food, and hot chocolate (one person got a milkshake too). Our reservation was 2 hours before the show we were attending downtown and we were done in a hour. Perfect timing to get to the show. Make a reservation if you are attending an event in the area.

    This is my family’s second time dining here and we did not have a good experience. The food is Coney Island quality. The New Yorker, the fish and chips and the smash burger were not good. They did not even look appealing. The buffalo wings and onion ring tower were probably the best things we had. They were average at best. Our orange cream floats and shakes were already melting when we got them as if they had been sitting for awhile. The server was very sweet but she had to do tables, the bar and the dishes so the overall service was very slow. Also, they sat us right next to a door that everyone uses to enter. People were mindful not to hit us with the door but it is definitely not a good spot to dine in. Overall, the experience was awful.

    That Reuben was AMAZING! The shake I had with the marshmallows and stuff was sooooo good & my waitress I think Sam was her name, I could see her moving around a lot that girl was putting in work! I wanted to be sure I left her at least $10 on the table for her because she was a great server. The cartoons on the TV tho.. just perfect!

    Good desserts but mediocre food. Went for brunch and I had the smoked brisket skillet, husband had the chicken sandwich and friend had a wrap sandwich. Also had a cup of chicken noodle soup with two noodles, less chicken than Campbells but enough onions and carrots for three large pots. All ok but not worth a trip. The tower of onion rings WAS the food highlight before dessert.

    The wait staff are very nice! The place is a little small for the amount of traffic they have. With it being on the middle of Downtown Detroit it needs to be larger to accommodate. The only thing I will say negatively about this place is the reservations I have been twice both times with a reservation and both times it was confusion. Make better accommodation for ppl with reservations other than that it’s a great place food is good and the prices are good as well.

    Came during an event night so it was crowded. A table wasn’t available when we arrived. When we were given a table 2 people from our party wouldn’t be sitting with us. We asked for a table so we could all sit together, finally got a table 40 minutes after our reservation time. We ordered everything at once and food came out very quick, except the milkshakes. They were melted by the time we got them. Our waitress was very nice. We would try it again on a day it won’t be so busy.
