    There were 6 of us at the table. One person had a great meal- lobster bisque and the sole. The others of us had acceptable meals, not great. Our waitress may have been new, but she messed up our 3 separate bills. For the money, we were disappointed.

    Service was really good! The food was just average especially for the cost. It was hard to have a conversation or understand the employees because of the acoustics in the restaurant. Would we go back? Probably not. It wasn't bad but it also wasn't great. Meh.

    I ordered shrimp from the online menu, what they brought is not what is depicted. I ordered a steak medium rare. They brought a well done steak. The food took forever on top of it all.

    Had reservations at 8:45, restaurant sends text saying the our table is ready confirm if on the way. We get to the restaurant walk past 6-8 empty tables, lady at the front tells us our table isn’t ready yet they need 10-15 mins we waited then she tells us our table is ready, yet when we walked in the same exact tables we’re empty! Hosts service was horrible food is good.

    We celebrated our 1st year anniversary here and it was such a delightful experience. The ambiance and food were top notch, but the customer service was the biggest highlight of all! The hostess didn’t even know this, but she asked if I would be willing to wait a few minutes to be seated in an area with less traffic, and I obliged. By the time my husband arrived, we were seated in a secluded booth that was perfect for us to enjoy our intimate dinner. Our server, Kimberly, was the absolute best! We shared that we were in a time crunch, and she served us accordingly. Even when I didn’t like my initial entree choice, she swapped it for the short rib (which was DELICIOUS) in a flash! The manager, who came over to greet us during our meal, visited again to assure us that his priority was our experience. We made sure to tell him that Kimberly was awesome, and he said she it was only her third day! We will definitely be back!

    Beautiful restaurant! We didn’t know what to expect because reviews are all over the place. We had a lovely time and our food was delicious and arrived warm. We were checked in on by our waiter and management several times to make certain we didn’t need anything. Our cocktails were delicious, and our bottle of wine exceptional. The wine sommelier was excellent, informative, and very pleasant. She was full of information and wanted to share! My husband and I shared the key lime pie for dessert which did not disappoint! The restaurant is first class. We will definitely return.

    I took my daughter and nephew yesterday before seeing a show at the Fox. Place was empty when we arrived for our 7:15 resy but was full when we left at 9:00. I ordered a Champagne that they stopped carrying but was able to find something comparable immediately. Our server was very polite and attentive checking in us during each course. We started with shrimp that were very fresh and plump, steak tartare that was great, the scallop that was great, and the lamb meatball that was very hearty and tasty. My nephew liked the onion soup, my daughter and I split the Caesar what was really good with the fried egg in a basket. We shared the steak fries that was perfectly cooked as were the great hot crispy steak fries, the duck that was a tiny bit dry but good, and the short rib that was melt in mouth good. The mushroom side and the hash brown in sauce were also very good. We got dessert to go, the tuxedo mouse cake that was outstanding. With two bottles of wine and all we got it is not an inexpensive meal, but in today’s market, I had no issue with the value. i would absolutely go back and there were other things on menu I would like to try. Highly recommend.

    The food was good, as well as Atmosphere.However be careful, the waitress tried yo scam us and instead of 25$ she changed the tip for 35$. Additionally, although it was our anniversary , and the manager of the restaurant knew it. They didn’t offer any special glass of champagne or a single dessert, ( after a good check)

    If you're looking for the French dining experience in Detroit look no further... seriously. This from someone who just returned from a trip to paris. The whole experience from the pace of food being brought to the table, the opportunity to actually enjoy the food and company is very on par with what to expect from a French Inspired Bistro. The food was incredible! Make sure to ask for something from the pastry cart! Our group ordered the Bagel + Lox make sure to add red onion, tomato & capers just takes it to the top! We also ordered the Croque which was PHENOMENAL! The staff was incredible. We had a wonderful time. The only thing our Sunday brunch was missing was the option to add on a Latte or espresso!

    We went for brunch. This is my second time here but first time leaving feedback. The previous experience was very similar. In general the location, menu and ambiance has the opportunity to be something exceptional but it is just average. It mostly comes down to paying attention to the front of the house staff and protocols. The food was pretty good. The food runners need to be more prompt in getting the food to the table and actually stopping to inquire whether anything else was needed. The food was in varying stages of warm but not hot. Price value ratio average. The length of time for the wait service It took just to get a cup of coffee for the table. She didn’t return frequently enough to pay attention to water and coffee refills and forget to bring out the tea ordered. Never ask if anything besides ketchup was needed for the burger, whether it was cooked appropriately. Medium was medium rare. Could have been much better and given the food prices this should all be on point and a better experience.

    The food was okay. We tried the entree similar to a seafood boil. Came with the lobster tail some mussels scallops in a tomato like stew. It wasn’t all that but I know this place has potential so I’m not going to give it a one star. Their dessert and appetizers were phenomenal.
