Mitchell's Fish Market - Livonia

Server must not had been trained on the basic etiquette of how to serve in a rather formal setting. Serving dishes from across the table, forgetting to serve items, even the formality of talking with customers. This is flatly a management issue.
The food was as expected but nothing stellar.
As we were walking into the restaurant, my seven year old asked why the restaurant “smelled like dead fish”!
Enjoyed our meal very much.
We were very disappointed though because when we made our reservation online through Opentable we specifically requested a quiet booth away from the kitchen. The restaurant was not busy at all & they initially took us to a table right next to the kitchen. Upon our request they did find us another table but that was not a good start from our perspective
Food good service ok
Seating was too tight and way too loud. Was like being seated in the middle of a bee hive. Do something to the room to absorbing the sound and stop packing so many people into a small area. I would rather pay more to have somewhat of a personal space and cozy conversation - than to have to shout over the four tables on all sides. We got up and sat ourselves in the bar, half way through dinner a couple brings their screaming baby into the bar. We’re not sure we’ll be back.
The food was incredible as always. Service was stellar. I love Mitchell’s
Took 2 full hours to get our bottle of wine and food which consisted of an appetizer, a bowl of soup, a salad and crab cakes. It was not busy. Food quality was Just ok. Service was pleasant but way too slow - she disappeared for extended periods of time.
Terrible food and service. Food over cooked and cold, service slow. 3 hour terrible experience.
Mikayla was outstanding!
I was very disappointed that my sister and brother-in-law were not recognized for their wedding anniversary. When I booked the reservation I noted that it was their wedding anniversary. When I checked in with the hostess I asked if it was noted that it was their anniversary and she said yes and would also note it again. Was very disappointed at the end of our dining experience that the staff did not recognize them.
My husband and I always come to Mitchell's for our anniversary or special occasion because we know the service is great and the food is wonderful. There are other places we could go to for dinner, but Mitchell's will always be our Number 1!
Best seafood on the west side. Great place for a small business lunch. I'd like to try the private room there sometime, too.
Excellent service and food! Would definitely recommend it !
Food was good and service exceptional
Food and service was good but not exceptional. Will return, but not a must go to restaurant.
Terrible service. Told server about a food allergy and was still served food I was allergic to. Manager did nothing. Won’t go back
The food was fine and we enjoyed it very much. Our disappointment was with the server. He never checked on us after we got our meals, we never got drink refills and it was slow to take our checked and even slower to bring it back.
Since we were visiting from Pennsylvania it's not likely we would ever eat there again. If we did we would simply ask for a different server.
Excellent food and excellent service at this location in Livonia
Made a reservation for 7pm, got seated at 7:45. Hostess was like I don’t care - you can leave if you wish. Manager was like - sorry we are busy. I won’t go back.
Slow service. Mediocre food, large menu. Avoid at peak times.
I don't generally do promotions or advertising for business or organizations, unless like businesses or organizations I have something to gain. You pay other agencies or maybe promote yourselves so it makes no sense to me why I would be asked to make any recommendations when I actually pay you. I'm in it for the good food basically, and the staff are really just good at what they do.
Ate in the bar so it was, not surprisingly, a bit noisy. Had the three course meal with stuffed flounder. It was very good.
It was the first time I sat on the patio it Great!
Anniversary dinner! Had the swordfish.... AMAZING!!
Service is great! Quality of meals is not that great!
Great food great service. As usual have to wait for drink orders and to receive said drinks. Work that out and it could be very good. Johnnie our server was stellar.
The kid hostess told us we had a 30 min wait and that’s with Landry card and reservations. I asked for table when I made reservation and said it again to hostess we were lead to a booth
My friend asked for steamed veggies and they weren’t. The dirty dishes were not removed from table. The waiter Drew said if you want dishes removed ask. That’s not the correct answer to me. We are frequent diners and this was not the way to treat customers. Frequent or not.
All good! Great service and quiet for a business meeting.
Service was friendly and helpful. Overall dining experience was just mediocre. Our bisque was warm, but not hot. Our entrees (also lukewarm) were tasty, but not delicious. Market Trios offered a nice variety, but again, nothing was particularly great. Crab-stuffed flounder was kind of bland, and the 3 small pieces of asparagus felt more like a garnish than a side dish. The grilled salmon, served cedar plank style, seemed to be the best choice of our group.
I would give Mitchell’s another try, but am in no hurry to return.
Slow service, cold food, very expensive. Will not return.
Always good as usual. I go to place for a great meal.
Very disappointed in the poor service. I received my glass of wine, but my parents didn’t get their drinks until I asked ten minutes after they originally place their order. After asking, he came back five minutes later and acted as if they never ordered.
We had oysters as an appetizer and I asked for saltine crackers, from three different people. The neighboring waitress clearly had an attitude and didn’t get them out of principle because she looked each time as she walked by as I sat their idle waiting for them in order to eat. I set my fork with the oysters as the food showed up and had to wait at least five minutes after asking three different people before the manager got one for me.
Portions were small, steak was cold by the time I received a fork. I also found it odd there was no vegetable with a filet or the twin lobster tails. During this entire time, neither my Dad’s empty coffee or water were ever refilled. I also didn’t receive my glass of wine I asked for when the food was delivered until I was almost done with my meal.
The worst part, not a single apology from the server.
I would not recommend this restaurant.
I had a wonderful time. The services was excellent as well as the food.
Great Food! Great Service! Quite loud though... Especially if you have a bigger group.
Great service, great food. For a large party, excellent choice.
Went to Mitchell’s Fish Market for our 42nd wedding anniversary lunch. Ate outside as the weather was cloudy. My wife and I both had a cup of lobster bisque. I had the salmon and she had the lobster shrimp BLT minus bacon. Our server was great and we were lucky to see a light rainfall to cap off our lunch.
Waiter was VERY slow, he did not refill my water, even though I asked. Twice.
Dinner was excellent, I ordered pasta off the summer menu. It was delicious! The only reason I gave ambience and noise a lower score is a car had just crashed through the window and I’m sure management was busy getting it repaired. But throughout all that was going on everyone remained professional. Mitchell’s is our “go to place “. You can count on great service and food!
Great customer service, delicious food and wonderful patio ambiance.
A descent dinner for the price. Sent back a swordfish dish ($29) for poor tasting sauce. The Asian style tuna steak ($32)that followed was quite good. The ice cream pie was a good dessert and 3 shared it ($10) and agreed. The crisp Brussels sprouts and homemade bread were good too. The house salad was not as good as prior times but still good enough to eat. We like their dressing on the side otherwise too much applied for our taste. The house wines by the glass are usually trustworthy. A 3.5 overall.
Food overall was horribly BLAND, no seasoning at all on 3 entrees
Great! Great! Great! From walking in all the way until we left after our meal..great service! We were immediately seated once we arrived. It took less than five minutes for the server to come to our table to greet us. Superb all around!!
