When we arrived there was no directive of where to go to check in for our reservation. We were seated by a waitress who was serving the tables around us. We sat for 20 minutes without anyone coming to address us. A young man that was cleaning tables noticed we hadn’t been acknowledged and went to get us water. I had to get up and go over to the group of waitresses to request the manager in order for our orders to be taken.

It took about 45 mins to an hour for our food to come out. My salmon was burnt. And my fiancé’s mac and cheese side was cold but his steak was cooked perfectly. Interesting. They did remake my entree although the waitress seemed to be slightly irritated at my request.

The overall experience could have been much better had the service staff been more personable and attentive.

I made a reservation for me and my boyfriend. We were sat as soon as it was our turn to check in with the waitress. We ordered crab cakes to start which were good just very small portions. The waitress who waited on us waited on everyone spmit took a while to get water refills but she was very nice. Everyone was really nice and the place is beautiful

We also ordered the seafood Mac and cheese and the mamba pasta. This is kinda where things went down hill. The Mac and cheese looked great but sauce was very thin and not creamy like some of the other pictures I saw. It also had a very bitter after taste. Like bitter to the point where I only ate the noodles on top since they have a shredded cheese instead of the cheese sauce. It was horrible honestly. The fried lobster tail on top was ok. That sauce was just off.

The mamba pasta sauce was thin as well and had a lot of flavors that didn’t compliment each other. I think this place had great potential but they may need time to hammer out the details. It was very disappointing being that with those three items our bill was about $80 and we went to another restaurant after since we only ate the crab cakes really.

The steak was so good. The glaze was a little vinegary but no need for steak sauce and i used a butter knive. The cheeseburger was really good my 4 year enjoyed it. The mac and cheese was nice a creamy and the croissants croissants were really good

This place has a nice ambience. There are a few things that a new restaurant should focus on that I believe this one lacks to a certain extent. 1. Customer service: while our waitress was nice, the timeliness to actually serve and check in on the table was slow. 2. Food: the food was good but two plates at the table was over cooked and the other was not brought out on time at all because of a kitchen mistake.

The food is great. However, for a restaurant that takes reservations only, I don’t expect to wait over an hour and a half for my food to be served. This was my 2nd visit and I can’t make myself go again unless the service speeds up.

Friendly staff, but we're also nervous I guess because they slipped water, dropped ice, and silverware A COUPLE of times. My waitress did forget our to go boxes three times and at that point I finished my food so I didn't need it any longer. Took an hour for the Food to come out but the Food was amazing so it was worth the wait! We ordered the Lobster and Crab Mac and Cheese and Lamb Chops. We will be returning

Really good food served in generous portions. The staff was friendly and helpful but the service was slow. As a party of 2 arriving at 5:30pm and ordering a shared appetizer and two entrees we left just after 7pm. And that was only because we had the credit card in hand when the bill came.

Everything was great. The only small issue was they didn’t bring all my food together so i had to wait about 15 mins for my sides so that deterred me. But overall great experience.

I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone. The night I visited this restaurant, a man came inside talking. He was either a military vet with PTSD or something. The waitress who’s name was Armonni Peace handle the man extremely well. Armonni asked him was he hungry, he said yes. Armonni ordered him some fries and paid for the food out of her own money. After about 5 mins the owner came from the kitchen telling Armonni that the man needed to leave now!! She stated that he was going to leave, he was just waiting for his fries. The owner said that he (the military guy with PTSD) needs to leave now!!! Armonni said he was and the owner proceeds to say he needs to leave right now, and you (Armonni) can leave too!!! He actually fired her that night!! I was soo upset about what happened I couldn’t finish the rest of my food!! I called Armonni over to my table to see if that is exactly what happened and she said, yes he did fire her for what happened!! I understand he’s trying to run a business, but that business is on Gratiot downtown by the eastern market!! It’s absolutely NO way she should’ve got fired for that!! That is the main reason I would not recommend nor return to this restaurant.

The food here was amazing. No complaints there whatsoever. Everything was as good as it looks. The music is also a nice touch!

My only reason for giving it a 4 star, is, for the price point, the seating and ambiance doesn’t align. Not that it’s dirty or bad looking inside. I just think if you have coats or extra things, it’s really a tight space. I would definitely go back and take others there, as well!

Our reservations were for 4:30 pm & we got there 10 mins late due to, the meter police giving out parking tickets. Parking isn't great but it's expected in that area. They were nice & still sat us. It was only probably 6 different parties i.e couples, a family of four etc basically it wasn't busy & it took 1.5 hours to get the food. Placed a carry out order when I placed my meal & requested it to be sent after my food comes, & the waiter forgot & I didn't have another hour or so to wait. Overall the presentation looked amazing & the food was great for the price. It was worth going back again, hopefully the food won't take as long.

Our reservation was at 4:30 and it was almost 4:45 before anyone even came and took our drink order. When our drinks arrived, we immediately placed our food order, and that’s where things continued to take a nosedive. We waited for our food for almost an hour! And all we ordered was the chicken pasta and the chicken wings and fries...nothing that requires a long cooking time. When the door arrived, it was mediocre at best, definitely not worth the exorbitant waiting time or the “upscale” price. (By the way, I have no problem paying upscale prices for upscale taste and ambiance.) Save your money and go elsewhere.
