A restaurant embracing the history of Detroit's industrial reach. The cinder block building that housed neighborhood fare for decades has received new life to further the tradition of hand-made, thought-out food and beverage. Expect personal service, handwritten menus, and a fresh, comfortable atmosphere. Food and beverage selections rotate with the seasons and availability of local farm products, with no set menu. Everything is handmade from scratch, with fresh, ethical ingredients from Chef Rigato’s extensive network of farms, butchers and foragers.
Incredible food. Tasting menu paired with wines was well worth it. Overall Wonderful Experience.
Amazing experience! The food was absolutely incredible and the service was some of the best I’ve had. Brock was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. He thoroughly explained every dish we ordered. Can’t wait to go back!
My favorite dining experience in the Detroit area. The James Beard nod is well deserved.
The meal was very well curated. Out of the 8 courses for the tasting menu I enjoyed all of them except for 3. It doesn't seem like a lot of food but by the end of the night you are full. My wife had the drink pairing, and she enjoyed how each drink matched the food course very well. Overall the meal was good, but on the pricey side.
This is the 3rd time I’ve done the tasting menu and it was excellent as always. The oysters were incredible and I’m pretty sure we’ll be talking about the waygu beef for the rest of our lives.
Amazing service and the best food around. Highly recommend the tasting menu.
We waited a LONG time to get a reservation here. We did not know if it would lice up to the "hype", since we had heard great things. It definitely lived up to the hype. We splurged and did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and we loved everything we tried. It was perfect.
Definitely a treat for a special occasion!
It was fantastic.
Hands down the best restaurant in metro Detroit! That is saying a lot because there are so many downtown that we love but Mabel Gray is a rare gem! Our server, Max, is outstanding!!!! He always remembers us even if it’s been a while since we’ve eaten there. The service here is outstanding and the food is fresh, seasonal, creative and ridiculously delicious! Their cocktails are exceptional & always on point. Music is always a great mix & the whole place has a very cool vibe!
Very knowledgeable staff. Wonderful experience!
Once again, had a great experience at Mabel Grey. Our waitress was excellent and all of our selections were so tasty. Can't wait for my next visit and I know my friends with me would agree.
We have eaten at Mable Gray 3 times now - and have always had the Chef's Choice menu. All I can say is - WOW! The food is dynamite EVERY time! I love this place!
Awesome, as always! The menu rocks, and service is the best! Great staff, and food!
We have NEVER enjoyed a more wonderful chowder. Will be back!
We chose the “Tasting Menu” and we were definitely not disappointed!
Food was absolutely amazing and had great service.
Oysters were probably the best we’ve had!
We will be back!
Chef Rigato is a genius. Every sing course on the tasting menu was absolutely phenomenal. On top of that, staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. This is hands down the best restaurant around.
Noise level is fairly high. Great food. Great presentation. Great value.
The tasting menu and beverage pairing was delicious and fun. I want to do it again. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our service was quick also.
Very small but nice. Food was very good, drinks as well but the service, Molly was fantastic. I would highly recommend.
Food was superb. Highly recommend the chef tasting with beverage pairing. Our server was awesome. Would love to return soon.
Birthday celebration. Everything was great. Some of the dishes were a little spicy but server did tell me in advance. So we asked for a sauce on the side who’s house was a good thing
Every dish sparked joy! Great care was taken in the preparation of each dish, which was served with knowledge, care, and good humor. I can't wait for another visit.
Food and service here is always top notch!
Amazing! Always an exciting adventure of flavors!
Another superior tasting experience by Chef James and his team. Many thanks for a wonderful night.
Fabulous food and our server Molly was brilliant
Outstanding as always! Best service, innovative food, always a great time.
Wonderful staff and spectacular food
This was my 4th experience at Mabel Gray but my daughters first. It never lets me down. The food is delicious, creative and never boring. Mark Anthony and Max explain each dish and generally make dining an enjoyable adventure. Paulina the sommelier was once again helpful in deciding a great bottle of wine. My husband had the steak which was unbelievable!!! The tasting menu was superb. Atmosphere is friendly and fun. I can’t wait for next time!
The restaurant is small, and when full, customers must talk over the background music and the din of the entire dining room is too much for any sort of conversation unless you want to be heard by the people at neighboring tables.
Great food and service - we will definitely return
Excellent service, drinks, food. The tasting menu was amazing and the service impeccable!
Just wanted to be pampered by the Mable Gray crew
Perhaps the best restaurant in SE Michigan and a bargain for all that. If you haven’t been, go. Period.
Hands down the attention to detail this establishment has is exceptional. Food and service is top notch.
Menu was different than what we were expecting, however it was excellent! Enjoyed everything, food drinks and our server was fabulous! Wish the restaurant was little bigger so we don’t have to wait two weeks for reservations.
We had a member of our party that couldn’t eat meat and they went above and beyond to reconfigure her tasting menu so she could still have the same experience as the rest of us. I can’t recommend this place enough
Amazing food and service!
Mable Grey never disappoints. The food is always amazing and the staff is the best in the city.
No matter what you order, the food is always phenomenal. Treat yourself and order the tasting menu with the beverage pairing, you won't be disappointed.
