The Grille Room
Book your next event with us
Food was good- one dish arrived cold but was replaced. Worst part was the service- over an hour wait after being seated to get the food Waitress became a bit surly when we mentioned the cold food. Overpriced for what you got. So many great places to eat in Detroit we probably won’t be back here
It was fantastic. Building is incredible to see. Service was impeccable. I highly recommend Adina. Food terrific. Will definitely return and already told two friends they have to go there.
Our server Erin was outstanding she went above and beyond for us. We can’t wait to come back we had a great experience
The food was fine and not the problem. We were there for Sunday bunch. When looking for a reservation, the only time left when I looked a couple of weeks ahead was the last seating at 2:30. I expected the dining room to be full. Not so. There were only 2 tables of 4 there when we arrived. ?? The job of the person at the front door seemed to be making sure not just anyone came into the building. It was odd. She then couldn't find the hostess and found our reservation herself. We were seated in that near empty dining room. The service was fine but the drinks were slow to arrive. They had go to find the bartender. The beer that was ordered turned out to be unavailable and another had to be chosen. The scone basket didn't contain the assortment promised. One of the selections was gone. The food was good and well prepared and the portions generous. As we were done with the meal one of the waiters began sweeping up behind the bar. It's good to be cleaning up but not while people were supposed to be enjoying a meal in a place that purported itself to be a "fine dining" experience. Overall it was an odd situation. I won't be back.
Such a great brunch experience for my mom's birthday. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, the ambiance was lovely, and the food was delicious. We'll be back!
This was our first visit to The Grille Room but hopefully not our last. We attended as part of Detroit Restaurant Week and loved our experience. Our server was wonderful, the food was amazing, and we had a fabulous time. After dinner we had a drink in the Library and enjoyed the unique offerings and the music.
Amazing ambiance! Great food and drinks!!
My friends and I went for Restaurant Week. The building is amazing. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Our server took note of our names which was a nice touch. The food was wonderful. Between us, we had the sea bass, the filet and the duck. Everyone loved their meals. We would all love to come back again.
Decided to try The Griile Room during restaurant week. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent as was the service and ambience. We had a drink before dinner in the library bar, which is very cozy and warm. We will definitely be back.
Great dining experience! Service was exceptional and food was great. We really enjoyed the atmosphere as well. Had a very regal feel
Went for restaurant week. Had awesome service. The short rib ravioli was delicious. Filet was only ok. It seemed like they had precooked them and just heated them to final temperatures as they were ordered so that was disappointing. Desserts were delicious. I would go back but they need to improve the filet experience for sure! The ambiance was great!!
We greatly enjoyed our time at the Grille Room for Detroit Restaurant Week. Our server was friendly and attentive, however the staff that was in charge of delivering our meal to the table was slow and we were forgotten about a couple of times. Tables seated after us received their entrees and completed dessert well before ours were even presented. Our server was set to bring us the bill for the night because she had thought we had been served dessert already. I would try this place again because the food was amazing and the ambiance was lovely, but I would build in extra time just in case the service time was not a fluke because of Restaurant Week.
Great historic room. We were there for Detroit Restaurant week and they had very fair sized meals. The Library bar (before dinner) is outstanding. I always wanted to check out this historic building, and now they have a very good place to eat in it. I will have to return to check out the full menu.
i've been wanting to go there all my life-it was worth the wait! beautiful!
The building is just grand - it's a gem for the City. The dining room is just lovely, not crowded and well appointed. The brunch menu is not extensive, but each selection has been perfected, with quality ingredients - there is much to be said for that. Portions are generous. Staff is attentive; our orders accurate. Have been for dinner and brunch - recommend both!
This restaurant is part of the historic Detroit Club. It’s a true gem polished with an elegance that speaks to the history of the city. The ambiance is classy and the food is excellent. The waitstaff was courteous and attentive. We went during restaurant week and couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. I highly recommend it.
We were drawn to Grille Room for its history, during restaurant week, believing that it was otherwise not open to public. The restaurant week menu options were quite extensive and tasty! We had the Mille Feuille appetizer (mushrooms, sauce in a pastry) that was fantastic, followed by filet mignon with a black garlic demi, and finally a chocolate mousse cake. Drinks were substantial and well prepared, and waitress was very attentive. Atmosphere was fantastic, dripping of the history of this historic place. Do be prepared for a substantial bill, restaurant week pricing was substantially below normal menu rates. But worth it for a special occasion.
Great food from appetizers to desserts.
Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, but not intrusive.
This was our first visit to The Detroit Club since it reopened and had a very enjoyable evening. Great service in The Library Bar and dining room (thank you Erin). Very creative and tasty three course dinner. Planning to come back in near future.
Great food and service but the chair was extremely uncomfortable and the prices were pretty high, $200.00 for a dinner for two with one drink each and a shared dessert.
Ambiance was fantastic—what a gem! They did an awesome job renovating! Food was average and definitely not worth the high price tag. The worst part: the sautéed shrimp came with a garnish that I made the mistake of eating. It was a red-hot pepper! Not only did my mouth burn for 20 minutes, but I lost all taste for 15 minutes! Not sure what the chef was thinking putting that with any meal!!! Went to the cigar bar afterwards and it was very enjoyable. Cigar selection is a bit limited but they have the basics.
Charming old club setting. Fun to see the building. Food was excellent: no "overcooked", meaning not too many extraneous ingredients just to sound exotic. Nice range of selections. Nice range of wine choices by the glass.
Valentines Day Lunch
Loved the atmosphere, service was outstanding. My eggs Benedict didn't taste right so they immediately replaced it with amazing french toast.
Walked around 1st floor, just a beautiful place
The Grille Room at The Detroit Club is simply outstanding. The food, drinks, atmosphere, service and prices were excellent. Highly recommended for Sunday brunch.
Everything began well enough, nice cocktails. When our meals arrived we realized we had lost our silverware with the salad course. Sat for 3 minutes waiting for someone to check on us, nothing. Finally went into the kitchen myself for them. Next my medium steak turn out to be well done (grey throughout), sent it back and after 20 minutes still didn’t get my meal. Waitress came by and said it will be out soon, but everyone at the table was finished so I told her to forget it. It was my wife’s birthday dinner so dessert and coffee was planned. But no. Our check was brought to the table without asking for it or apology. After seeking out Anthony the manager with my complaints, they offered coffee and dessert without charge. Coffee came but 15 minutes later dessert didn’t. This prompted me to seek out the chef for an explanation as why things were going so poorly. After a short discussion chef Kirk said “look it’s just a meal so why get so upset and sometimes things don’t work out the way you expected “. I was shocked that he felt we came to the Grille Room for “just a meal”. My response was that we actually came for an experience and that I can cook “just a meal” at home. So I shrugged my shoulders and walk away disappointed.
Service was great, ambiance wonderful and Sea Bass amazing. Truly wonderful evening out!
My wife and I enjoyed my Birthday dinner. We enjoyed a drink at the Library Bar in the Detroit Club and a wonderful dinner at the Grille Room.
The design and and decor are remodeled very nicely! It’s like stepping back into the 1930’s as a wealthy elite, but very warm and inviting. The food was 50/50 as 1/2 the meals came out cold and service could certainly be improved since they’re responsible to deliver. Nice wine selection. Overall, I’d go back for special occasions and with friends who want to experience the Detroit Club.
Very delicious food, pleasant server, beautiful ambiance. Everyone sing the way said hello. A happy place to be
Ambiance was amazing, You can feel the history. My boyfriend's steak was perfect, but my lobster pasta fell a bit flat. My daughters loved their chowder. The service was PERFECT.
We had a great time! Food was very good, service was very good, ambience was beautiful! Highly recommended
Food was fabulous and the service was top notch.
I decided to Celebrate my birthday at the restaurant. It was a great experience from the service to the food. The library bar is a great addition. We will be back for sure
Wonderful Brunch! Great menu with many breakfast and lunch items with fabulous cocktails.
Service is always excellent as well as the ambiance. Can't wait to go back.
We loved the whole experience. The ambiance and food were above our expectations.
This was such an amazing experience. The food was divine. Cocktails were fabulous. The music was a classic mix of Motown. No better place that the DetroitClub for Brunch on a Sunday Morning. Our service was beyond amazing!
Did you ever have that feeling of Olde World ambiance co-mingled with the world's best chef's? I would recommend this opportunity (who knows how long they will invite the public) to everyone. The seafood omelette and the pancakes with lemon curd are over the top.
Happy dinning. Definitely impressive. One more week of the test run of Brunch... GO!
Gorgeous renovations of this historic mansion and club make this restaurant's ambiance cozy and romantic for a winter date night. I love historic buildings of Detroit and the menu looked really good. I was unfortunately disappointed with the flavor of the dishes. They were quite bland, therefore, did not feel the prices matched the value of the whole experience. Improve this and it could be a 5 star.
This place has much to offer, however, it was not ready for prime time. The food was great! Give it a try to see history.
First visit and really did not know what to expect. Had been following The Grille Room for a couple months since they started service again and it was the Eater Detroit article announcing the opening of The Library bar within The Detroit Club that prompted me to finally visit. I did so with three guests in tow on the Friday night of the NAIAS Charity Preview and am very happy with the decision. The club itself is very well-kept and all three ladies thoroughly enjoyed roaming all the public spaces, taking every opportunity possible for selfies with the decor. We all enjoyed our appetizers and meals, as well as cocktails at The Library beforehand. The Lamb shank I ordered was nicely done and of very sufficient portion size. This was the case with the other entrees, as well. One of my guests elected to add steak to her salad, but what arrived was basically a decent portion of sliced steak with some salad on the side, lol. I was really impressed with what the club has to offer. You can spend an entire evening here starting with The Library, dinner in The Grille Room, and then moving upstairs to the game room or cigar lounge and each has their own full bar. See the pics.
