Sushi
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 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 downtown's best performance venues up Woodward Avenue after dinner at the Fox Theatre and Fillmore or enjoy a sporting event or concert at Little Caesar's Arena and Ford Field, just minutes away.

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

Delicious rolls. Great gluten free menu. I prefer my sushi not fried, raw, and a minimal amount of sauce. This place nailed it and I didn't have to alter any rolls. Drinks were strong, dessert was delicious, waiter was friendly. I'll leave you with three words: HONEY WASABI AIOLI 😍

The sushi was wonderful but I was pleasantly surprised by the shareables. Crabby mushrooms combined the inside of a crab wonton with a fried mushroom shell. With two appetizers and two sushi rolls I ordered way too much. Very generous portions!

Our 2 boys have life threatening food allergies to dairy, nuts & eggs. We eat here often & the kitchen staff is amazing at accommodating our dietary needs. We love all of the Maru locations!

My husband and I are here on Saturday. Food was mediocre. We ordered an appetizer that came out at the same time as the sushi. The sushi was on 3 plates (3 rolls). There was no room for the appetizer on the table so my husband held it in his hands. Very buzzard. I would not recommend the sushi. It was very bland and my husband ended up getting very sick after eating here. Service was poor. I ordered a specialty drink that was watered down. I ended up returning. Save your money and your GI system. Don’t eat here.

Maru never disappoints! The service was outstanding and the food is always so good! Very creative selections and some great classics. Love the seaweed salad and I think their fried rice is by far the best. The addition of the egg on the top is the game changer.

We had reservations on a busy night, regardless, we waited an hour and twenty minutes to be seated. After the host called me by the wrong name and then asked my name - immediately looking frantic, it was obvious they gave my reservation to someone else.

We ultimately ate at the bar and were served by a phenomenal bartender who took great care of us. She made the wait worth it and we had a very enjoyable rest of the night.

Food was great, bar and meal service was great, atmosphere was crazy loud - with girls doing shots and being a bit obnoxious.

Every time my wife and I get a babysitter for a night out the first thing we say is, “let’s go to Maru!” The food is always great and so is the service. We just went for my 40th birthday and had a great time. I thought I might get a free dessert, but didn’t, oh well. Next night out I’d be happy to head back for their great sushi.

Excellent dinner at Maru... we ordered the crabby mushrooms for an appetizer along with the Miso soup... both were delicious! Main course was a couple of sushi rolls (Soy Joy and Blue Mango)... both were outstanding! Like the atmosphere on a Saturday night... lively and energetic. Would definitely recommend.

Sushi was excellent I just have beef about the bathroom situation...I understand its attached to a office building but to only have to single restrooms available for that entire establishment is ludicrous.

Love this place and Sushi is very good just the service always seems to be very slow even during the lunch hour. Other than that very good. Just plan extra time if going during lunch.

Maru is a great place to take anyone. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is wonderful. The sushi I had was "Archer" and the "Rio Grande" I would highly recommend them if you're not a big fish person. Overall my whole experience was wonderful!

Devious and misleading.
When processing my credit card the machine I was given had a 25% gratuity already included and totalled. I asked the server why and she said I had other options (20 and 18%). We were a party of three with a $177 check.
This practice or policy is devious and greedy. I wrote to the GM whose business card was at the host stand yesterday morning. I have yet to receive a response.
Shameful!
