The Apparatus Room
The menu delivers classic American fare with Executive Chef Thomas Lents at the helm. Dishes feature locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients.
During the daytime, the bar serves as a coffee counter with seating featuring local partner, MadCap Coffee, and pastries prepared in house. The beverage program encompasses a strong classic and craft cocktail list, various local beers will be highlighted, as well as a hand selected culinary driven wine list.
It was GREAT! Fast friendly service. Good food.
We were really surprised on how good our Brunch visit was. Their Belgian waffles are very good and I also enjoyed their coffee offerings as well.
Great location and unique decor in the old firehouse. Food and drinks were excellent as was the service. My only reason for less than 5 stars was the price. It's a little expensive for what you get.
We had to wait A 1/2 hour for our table, but it was well worth the wait. The winter vegetable soup was outstanding and my filet cooked perfectly. The Brussels sprouts were exceptional crispy with soft center. Waitstaff was professional and attentive. I definitely highly recommend.
Awesome food and service!
Although the food was excellent the service was completely awful. I made a reservation for my birthday, with my girlfriends, the service was very slow seem like on purpose, as we could see how people that arrived after us were immediately served. When I stepped to the bathroom my friends asked one of the managers for a birthday cake or something just to mark the occasion, it never arrived, not even an explanation. When it came time to pay, the waitress said my card could not be read, again seem to be on purpose, as I used that same card many times that day without any issues. It’s hard for me to believe that new developments in this city, that I have grown to love, allow their employees to treat customers differently. I am mexican and yes, we were speaking in spanish, we are women professionals working to grow this city and its industry and yet we got to be treated differently and that is just not acceptable. So, after all this, this restaurant is not worth it when you end your birthday dissatisfied and mostly disappointed.
Took my wife there for her birthday. First time there, definitely won't be the last. Great food. Service was spot on. Detroit is definitely back!
Had dinner and drinks at Apparatus Room on 3/15/19. Cocktails were excellent and they also offered an extensive wine list. All meals were fantastic...pork chop main course was highlight. Service was exceptional without being in your face - very well balanced. Can't wait to come back! Another great option in Detroit.
I had the Fried Cauliflower with Spicy Korean Sauce appetizer for my lunch. It may have been the best dish I've ever eaten that didn't involve prime beef! It's also a great room with a good vibe.
The ambiance is great - the food is just OKAY. The chef tries to hard to mix together different flavors that don't necessary work. The food is well-plated but overall this place is more hype than anything. That said, I'm glad I tried it but it's not my top pick for a restaurant downtown.
Loved the atmosphere and experiencing the rebirth of Detroit! Great service, delicious and beautifully presented food.
We had our family together for dinner, some celebrating birthdays, job promotions & visiting from Alaska! Everything was amazing. Our waitress came off rude to us but she was also very busy. I love Apparatus Room & will always recommend to everyone
Great spot to dine. Cocktail list, beer list and wine list cover all the palates. Menu is creative and delicious. We will go again.
Great ambience with good food and excellent staff. It was a perfect evening for our special meeting.
Tried the Chef's choice menu for two people. Excellent value, very very good food. Will return next time we're in Detroit!
My new favorite place for brunch. I especially love the jazz 2nd sundays to go with my meal. Friendly staff is amazing. I highly recommend this to ANYONE.
The venue is really nice and comfortable. The food was even better. A fairly small but well done menu for brunch included high quality delicious food. I also appreciate that they use local companies for coffee and some of the cocktails.
Very nice experience. Love the staff, food and decor. Just a great atomsphere for any occasion!
Outstanding food and service!
What a fantastic meal! We were celebratig my son's birthday and we couldn't have been happier. Food was outstanding and service was attentive. Great ambiance. Can't wait to return.
Love the brunch! Def my go to spot!
It s a bit over rated, but the ambience is nice and the food is decent
Best breakfast in Detroit! Always a great experience. 10/10 and the atmosphere is a significant component of this rating
fun, great staff, unique menu and good eats. A little loud due to the high ceiling.
I would go there again without hesitation! The food was excellent and the restaurant was a lot of fun.
Great food and drinks. Smaller menu but interesting ingredients. Loud (but not excessively) because there was live music that night. Fun and lively scene.
Lovely food, service is perfection, beautiful atmosphere.
This has quickly become one of my favorite places in Detroit. They are doing some great things with food here and I hope they continue to keep up the great work. I will say that they need to seriously consider hiring a new host to help great and seat people. I almost left my last visit due to Charity and her incredibly rude attitude. My wife and I where taken back and would have left if we didn’t have a tight schedule to follow. I will be back, but if this woman is at the door I may turn right around.
Super cool place and very good service and food. Treat yourself.
Excellent Detroit experience. Great food. More expensive.
We loved our food. The wait staff was great. The restaurant was freezing... We did move to another table... Still a bit cold. They definitely need to add an air lock at their entrance. Would also be helpful
for the Valet to have a sign on the curb so people know that they have valet. We drove around three times looking for a parking place (anywhere ) ... Finally realized there was a valet . No signage or even a valet to be seen. Finally someone coming out told us there is valet service...
Loved the food....
It was wonderful, I brought my chef brother to the Apparatus Room and he was pleased & impressed. I always enjoy my food and drinks there, service is always stellar!
The location, the atmosphere, the food, everything was incredible. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Everything about the experience is worth the expense. Food is well thought out and presented. The well trained service is helpful not intrusive. Throughly enjoyed ourself and will return.
Small menu but very good. Great quality. Very pricey for dinner. Mext time is like to try brunch or lunch.
Nice atmosphere with good food for a reasonable price.
It was my youngest daughter's 21st Birthday and wanted to bring her to a unique place that would match her personality. The Apparatus Room was perfect! I couldn't ask for a better place to celebrate her special day. The atmosphere was open, bright and inviting. Everyone we came in contact with that works there was friendly and attentive. It was quite refreshing. The delicious food and drinks were priced just right. The server was wonderful and even brought a little dessert with three candles - 2 on 1 side and 1 on the other for 21. Such a nice personal touch. We will definitely return and check out the different things they have scheduled. You will not be sorry!
It was a great experience from beginning to end. The service was impeccable.
