About

Mint 29 is an upscale fusion cuisine that serves the best international dishes. It got its name from the mint coins found on the walls of the historical building during renovations. The place was built in 1929 and was a federal bank for several years, then a music store before it became Mint 29 restaurant.

Mint 29 serves organic kobe beef, fresh seafood, sushi, signature drinks and draft beer. However, some items on our menu will change seasonally, mainly in the summer, when we get fresh produce from Michigan farmers, to give you the best experience every time you visit us.

Everything about this place was wonderful! Only negative thing I can say is that it was really cold outside and there are two doors to come in and out and it was freezing from being opened frequently so dress warm if its cold out.

The waitstaff was friendly but inept. Waited 15 minutes for salad. Was only served salad and bread when I finally asked the host what was taking so long. Bread was served with a cheese knife. I was asked if I wanted butter. I had to ask for bread plates. Food was flavorful and served at appropriate temperature. Prices were high for quality of food and service.

Been twice now. Both times were excellent meals very tasty and left us wanting to come back. Both times however the waiters were quite unfamiliar with the menu and unable to give much feedback about the sauces and types of dishes. My wife has a lot of food allergies and the first thing we did was ask our waiter to steer her clear of garlic. He salad was loaded with garlic and she spent most of the night suffering for it, which is the only reason I am likely not to go back again.

I had a delicious meal as a part of Dearborn Restaurant Week. This was my second time dining at Mint 29 and I will definitely be back. It is a bit pricey but the food is really good.

Pleasure being able to be seated right at our reservation time. From the drinks and appetizers right to the main course with sides, everything was cooked perfectly and was so tasty! Will certainly be back....

Mint 29!!! What an amazing restaurant! Everything was superb- the service, the food, the attention to detail! The crab mac n cheese was nice and creamy. The roasted carrots had just the right amount of sweetness. My drink was great (spiced pear mule) Great addition to Dearborn!

We had reservations and when we got there we waited half an hour when there were 4 tables empty!!! And we got seated, half hour later a big group walked in and they were seated but I guess they needed one more table for them, the guy who was seating people kept looking at our table to see if we were done eating so he can use our table....it was very rude!!!!!

The food was excellent. However it took a very long time to get our meal. The drinks came right away. But I had requested bread (they do not offer it unless asked), which also took a long time to arrive. My tip: do not go there starving, like I did.

Been to this place three times now and it does not fail to impress me each time. Steaks are sublime and whatever seasoning they add to the outside of the steak is perfection. I can't wait until summer when we can go outside to eat. This place is fantastic and for any of you who only eat Halal meat, they have it! Try this restaurant, but try to go early for dinner as they get super busy as the night progresses. We love it and would recommend it to anyone!

The only gripe I have is that the exterior door opens right into the dining area. When the temperatures are in the 20s, the frequent chills from the doorway detracts from the meal. But great food and good atmosphere.

The restaurant is small, which I really liked, but the dining area is right at the front entrance and it is extremely cold every time someone opens the door. 95% of the food was amazing! The only dish that wasn’t very good was of course my mom’s entree and it was her birthday. She ordered the airline chicken and it tasted like something served on an airplane. The only other thing that bothered me was our waiter didn’t offer any dessert for my mom’s birthday. Or even ask if we wanted to do something small for her to end the meal. Just a typical, “any dessert? Ok, here’s your check.”

Super friendly and quick-to-serve staff. They did not have appetizers on the menu for lunch, but allowed us to order from a limited list anyway. Atmosphere is very unique. Food was EXCELLENT and price was reasonable for the quality and portions. Would definitely go again.

Fine dining experience. Limited wine selection by the glass.
Enjoyed an excellent smoked salmon appetizer and caprese style salad. The salad would have been better if it had fresh heirloom tomatoes.
My wife had the sea bass and said it was very good. My rib eye was full of flavor and done very nicely.

I have yet to be disappointed with anything I’ve ordered at Mint29. My salad was delicious and a large portion for the price. Several ordered the quinoa cake and that looked amazing and also came with soup or salad which lap looked delicious. Another ordered the salmon, which is perfect every time. Highly recommend!

Great food. Love the ambiance of the restaurant. Jimmy was an excellent waiter. I had the most delicious veggie/vegan entree- that I would order over and over again, but wish there could be at least one other option- other than a salad- for vegetarians.

Dearborn’s gem! It’s promising to see fine dining return to the city. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional. The Korean barbecue salmon with quinoa was fabulous as was the sea bass. An excellent assortment of appetizers available during happy hour. We look forward to our next visit soon!

This was our 3rd visit and another great experience! Some of the best steaks and seafood I've had in a long time.
If I had to dig hard it would be to add more straight forward liquor cocktails on the list. Have a whiskey list, this what's hot right now.

The owner was there and was very welcoming and attentive. I liked the fact that the high table we were seated at had hooks for purses, the first time I saw this, very thoughtful. The food was good with an interesting menu. The only negative was that the waiter did not offer us a bread basket while we were waiting for our meal and sipping wine. (The owner finally brought some to us).

We will definitely visit again.
