This stylish Downtown kitchen offers Japanese shareable plates, udon soups, and creative sushi rolls, plus an extensive cocktail, wine and beer list including plenty of drink specials for the after-work crowd. Set inside the Federal Reserve Building, the modern, bright space features a white marble sushi bar, restored terrazzo floors, and a ceiling meant to evoke a fisherman’s net. (via Zagat)

Located near the corner of Fort Street and Griswold Street, Maru Sushi is just minutes away from the Shinola Hotel and around the corner from the Foundation and Westin Book Cadillac while Campus Martius Park is less than a 3-minute walk from our front door.

Enjoy some of downtowns best performance venues up Woodward Avenue after dinner at the Fox Theatre and Fillmore or enjoy a sporting event or concert at Little Caesars Arena and Ford Field, just minutes away.

Downtown Detroit is thriving and vibrant and we are proud to be a part of that resurgence.

I took my mother here for Mother’s Day and the staff was absolutely amazing! They saved us a really cute booth which I thought was very thoughtful! It was our first time and we had an amazing experience. Our server drew was great! He was very welcoming, helpful, attentive and gave us the perfect amount of space while keeping a close eye on us. The woman who greeted us was so welcoming and sweet as well, but I did not get her name. Appetizers and sushi were wonderful and plated well. My only negative was our hibachi steak was a little under heated. It seems like they probably sous vide and it just wasn’t quite warm by the time it reached us. However, the service and rest of our meal was absolutely fantastic and we will be back. Little things happen!

Worst service I've ever has at a restaurant. Will never return. My husband and I left after one round of drinks and an appetizer. The manager Toby didn't apologize once and reserved the same appetizer we sent back as a result of having no soy sauce for 5 minutes and the seared salmon belly nigiri was now cold. Coming from an employee who used to work at the East Lansing Maru, this is not the service I would ever have been expected to provide to Maru patrons. The rudeness of the manager was so off-putting. Very sad.

although the menu is quite pricey, the food is absolutely phenomenal and worth it. the spicy mayo wasn’t spicy enough but other than that the service was incredible.

My wife and I love Maru. Best sushi hands down. We have been log-time customers since the opening of their first location in Okemos, MI as MSU alumni. During this visit we took some friends of ours as their first time and they also fell in love. From the quality, freshness, presentation, and attention to detail. No one has Maru beat.

Our server was absolutely charming. The restaurant was not terribly busy, but it did take over half an hour to get our food after ordering. The food was decent and very filling. The staff made the experience great, but the food itself was not fantastic.

Service was great, food was just okay. We frequent a lot of different sushi places and this place had a pretty small menu, and the sushi rolls weren’t made very good. When you went to pick a lot of them up, they just unrolled and fell apart.

We went there for my husband's 39th birthday celebration during Covid. It was just the two of us at the dinner and the restaurant was not too busy. We enjoyed the 4-course dinner option curated by the Executive Chef which was phenomenal! Maru Sushi also catered to my special request for the birthday. I will most certainly be back following the Covid restaurant restrictions!!!

My husband and I had a lovely date here! Cocktails and sushi rolls were amazing. We are vegetarians so we don't typically go out for sushi, but Maru had great veggie options. I would go again!

Great service & the sushi was outstanding. We came looking for otoro which they didn’t have due to Covid/keeping costs down, which was totally understandable. Staff was all very kind and it felt safely distanced.

Maru hands down is the best sushi restaurant in town. And their hibachi is an added bonus. Appetizers are always on point . The food here is sure to fulfill you palette. The drinks are delicious , the staff is friendly and good looking. I’m a regular here because I have high expectations and consistency is key. They never disappoint. Tobi and Cody are the best!
