    Had a group for dinner before a show at the Opera House. The prix-fixe show menu was a nice option. This is not a quick restaurant, so putting together the quickest meals was a good idea. I knew this was a slow place going in, so we had plenty of time. They seemed very disorganized for this meal, unlike my last visit. I ordered a swordfish special and it came out significantly later than my friends' meals due to a "computer glitch". Sadly, I was disappointed in it because it had no seasoning or flavor. It also appeared that one swordfish steak had been cut in half to give to me and a friend that had ordered (and waited for) the same. Most everyone else really enjoyed their entree, so I'm just jealous. I'd still go back to The Statler, when I have plenty of time and no desire for an off-menu special.

    Don’t expect too much from the cocktail menu and the duck was rather dry. That said, everything else was excellent. The shrimp dish was very very good.

    Nice new place, seems every dish is just loaded with butter though. I had the salmon and it was a very small piece floating in a tray of butter. Not ideal.

    Incredible. The Statler didn’t let down. Ambiance was comfortable, food was incredible and the service was attentive but not suffocating. The food was well prepared. The only complaint was the red wine (delicious bottle of Bordeaux) was too cold. The waiter said their cellar was too cold. Once it came up to temp a bit it was great but they likely would’ve had another bottle to us had we been able to drink it. Cocktails were wonderful. The pâté and fois gras were the wins but everything was delicious.

    My wife and I went here for a little dinner before a performance at the Masonic and the service was excellent. The food was high-quality, and the restaurant was at about 65% capacity. Our server was very attentive and the food was reasonably priced and delicious.

    The food was delicious. Although the restaurant was not busy, the service was very slow. While we were still eating dinner, and well before closing time, one of the workers started drawing the drapes closed to get a head start on her closing duties. It became dark and claustrophobic. Thankfully I was able to convince another worker to draw open the drapes.

    The waitress and service was very nice but our entree were not properly seasoned at all. My daughter ordered a burger that was so salty: it was barely eatable. My wife and daughter boyfriend ordered the Ragout and it had no salt. My coquilles ST Jacques was properly seasoned and tasted fine. But to have 3 dishes so improperly seasoned in a fine French restaurant is an issue the owner should look at. We are not from Detroit and we’re passing by on our way to Texas and wanted to try have some escargots which was the main reason for visiting that restaurant which was the closest French restaurant to our airport hotel. The Escargots were average for what it’s worth. I don’t usually post reviews but this was pretty unacceptable for a fine dining restaurant.

    Great New Year’s Eve celebration. The restaurant was lively. Full of energy. All four of us enjoyed our appetizers, salads, and main courses. Cocktails are great. Desserts options have improved significantly. Parking is simple and easy downstairs. I’ve been to the restaurant multiple times and will keep coming back.

    Wonderful NYE dinner at The Statler. Great service from Noel and warm, personal service from sommelier Andree Lux. Escargot and salad Lyon to start were delicious. Special entrees of halibut and lamb were sublime. Of course chocolate and raspberries for dessert. Authentic French bistro atmosphere makes this one Detroit’s best restaurants. Cheers!

    The four of us had 2 different entrees (scallops and short ribs) and 4 different wines by the glass. We had the French onion soup, the French country Lyon salad, carrots& parsnips sides and the Brussels sprouts sides. Everything was very good. The wines by the glass were impressive the scallops portion was large and the best in 8-10 years. The short rib was very flavorful possibly a tad too lean? ( but being too fatty ruins a great short rib so imho they erred the right way). The Brussels sprouts side was perfect! Prices are a bit on the nose but you know that going in. Still $65 for steak frites? Anyway. It’s excellent food and a beautiful location. The valet parking is also over the top and our waitress was obviously new/inexperienced but well trained. Coffee and teas were also excellent.

    Loved the French bistro feel. Our waitress was outstanding. Food was very good. Definitely looking forward to another visit. My one complaint was the parking. Very convenient location, but I didn't like that the only option to pay was via an app that required your name/email and then forced you to leave a minimum $4 tip even though I chose not to valet and park myself.

    Celebrated my wife's birthday in Detroit on Tuesday and had a wonderful experience at the Statler French Bistro. Our server, China, did a wonderful job being attentive, but not too attentive. She started the evening off with a champagne toast, which was a nice touch to set the stage. The food was all very good. The only reason that gave the food a 4 was the temperature, was warm, but not hot. The taste was outstanding. The dessert was peppermint creme brulee which was the largest we had ever had, and outstanding. We will be back.

    Wow! What a find. Excellent. Valet is in parking garage with closed but automatic door- just pull up to door and it'll open - at far end from restaurant entrance, but is marked. Dining room really is reminiscent of Parisian bistros. Very nice. Our table of four was served efficiently and professionally by Jose and his crew. Every dish we ordered was perfect except the duck leg confit which was tough. Otherwise this is an up and coming 5 star on our list of go-tos.

    Overall I was ok, but I was so disappointed because I noted on my reservation that we are celebrating a birthday and even the hostess asked and confirmed the birthday when we got seated. But she never told the sever because she just wanted to go home, and so my sister’s birthday celebration never happened. I mentioned it to the server after the fact and he confirmed he was never notified. I specifically chose this restaurant for her birthday and I was sooo disappointed and unimpressed afterwards. Not happy for the worth.

    The ambiance is wonderful and the service generally good (although we waited 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee and a cup of tea after our dinner). The disappointing part was the food — my Salmon was mediocre at best, my daughter’s short ribs were extremely dry and my husband was also so disappointed in his meal that he didn’t even finish it. Not what you expect with a $250 bill.
