I filled that it was a special occasion but what is the point if no one is going to say anything or do anything about it.

The decore is minimal which lets the food be the star. In addition S Blue is a hopping spot with a very energetic air. Our service was exceptional without being cloying. The food was amazing. Every diner starts with cornbread. It was a great recipe, not too sweet and not gritty. We shared the crab cake as an appetizer. Not dense but not falling apart - perfect. The cake was probable a full cup of crab. For entrees we had the shrimp & grits and the bbq ribs, both were delicious. Neither of us could finish our entrees. Coffee and the beignet bites were our dessert. This was an exceptional experience. One suggestion: Some type of wipes or wet towel would compliment the ribs.

The catfish fritters were delicious to start with. The salmon was cooked perfectly- soft and delectable on the inside, with a crisp outside. The beignets were to die for. Each part of the meal was perfect. Our server was great. The only issue with service was dirty dishes not getting cleared with the delivery of new courses by other staff.

Yum....Great girls noght out. Nice menu with delicious choices. Crab cakes got a great review, ox tail over cheddar risotto tasted delicious, Fried chicken with candied yams was tasy and juicy with a maple dipping sauce..delicious and reasonably priced. Corn bread was tasty as we waited for our food. Service was outstanding..friendly and informative. Will return again.

We were in Detroit for a football game and stayed downtown. Found this place on Open Table. Looked great, was within easy walking distance. We were really glad we came. The people were friendly, service was welcoming and professional, and the food was delicious. My companion had shrimp and grits. His only complaint was he didn't have room to finish it. I tasted the grits and they were decadent. I had the blackened shrimp farro jambalaya and it was so, so good. In addition to blackened shrimp, it had andouille sausage and crab meat. It was nicely spicy and i had a glass of Vouvray to go with it. Absolutely delicious. Sadly, no room for dessert. But every morsel we managed to put away, we savored.

The food, and service were absolutely excellent!! I had the Salmon, my husband had the fried catfish and we shared the sweet potato bread pudding. Everything was prepared to perfection!

Door man requested that we make a reservation 🙄, which was quick and easy on open table. Got seated the bar till our 3rd guest arrived. Bar service was busy, took about 15+ mins to put in our drink orders. Our third person arrived and was hassled to get in to meet us. We were made to cash out at the bar before being seated.

Waitress was very good, attentive. Food was good also, great value. Entry and bar experience were lack luster, dining room setting was much better

Me and my friend went to celebrate me graduating we were sat it was afternoon dim inside my table candle wasn’t lit we ordered drinks the waitress came back to let me know they were out of what we wanted so I ordered sprite he coke. The sprite was out so I received a cup of soda water his coke was FLAT we let her know she took my cup and told us the coke was out of a two litter so she doesn’t know what to say... we placed our orders I ordered cat fish my friend a burger medium and no tomatoes. Food came, catfish was great a little greasy but still tasted great. His burger was well done with tomatoes.. we kept quiet my sweet potatoes were over cooked but the Mac and cheese was ok. During our meal someone cane REACHED OVER MY FOOD to light the candle in a dirty glass smeared with old wax... never offered a drink refill just an over all fail. I literally walked around 30 minutes to find the place during the lions game craziness for nothing I will not be back.

I've eaten here before with my wife, but the last three times the food has taken a downward turn. The SavannahBlue chicken was VERY SALTY AS WELL AS THE GREEN. The blackeyed pea hummas was lacking in flavor. Will think 8 times before coming here again.

Not the greatest location, off of Woodward with an uninspiring view BUT food is excellent! Dry rub wings to start were delicious and I had the braised oxtail with cheddar risotto and I loved it. Hubby had the crab cakes and he was very happy with them. I would definitely go back again and highly recommend.

Great place for a group of 4 or less. They generally only take reservations for up to 4 people. Food is amazing! Southern comfort with a fine dining twist. Everything tasted homemade and prepared with fine attention to detail. Slightly pricey but worth it for the quality of meal. Must try the crab cakes & the catfish fritters!

My fried chicken was burnt, I saw the manager walk around and greet other tables asking them how everything was. Not once did he come over and greet us or even ask how everything was very disappointing.

One of my top 5 culinary experiences. The shrimp and grits were the best I’ve ever had. The cornbread was at a whole nother level. Oxtail and the risotto.... flawless. The seafood soup, incredible. If I lived here I would eat here as often as I could.
