Steakhouse
Vertical Detroit opened its doors in 2015 under the expertise of James Lutfy and Remy Lutfy. Their combined fifty years of wine knowledge, obtained after owning the Fine Wine Source in Livonia, Michigan, studying wines across the globe and simply having an absolute passion for it, gave Vertical Detroit the title of Downtown Detroit’s first high-end, wine-centric restaurant. Vertical Detroit serves as a wine bar/restaurant/retail space in the historic Paradise Valley district of Downtown Detroit. The space gives patrons a luxurious, yet comfortable atmosphere to enjoy quality wine, beer and liquor, paired with small plates, entrées and desserts. The wine bar concentrates on wine flights, specialty cocktails, shareable plates and retail sales. Vertical Detroit has something for everyone; whether you’re downtown for a casual drink, date night, catching up with friends, or stopping in after enjoying a show.

    This was such an amazing experience for my boyfriend and I! We had the pork chop and it was unlike anything I’ve ever had. Caesar salad was incredible too and Shawn & Kyle were amazing waiters. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Food, service, drinks, and atmosphere were all excellent. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that it took a little bit to get our main course after our appetizers and salads. Would definitely go back though.

    Food was good and our server was nice and explained items in the menu for us. However, the restaurant was empty but they thought it was a good idea to sit us next to the stinky bathroom. It smelled like adult diapers and it was hard to focus on eating we just wanted to hurry up and get out of there. The menu selection was pretty small but the prices were fair. Unfortunately did not meet my expectations

    What a great find! Our dining experience was excellent. We started with the smoked trout on toast, which was extremely flavorful. Next salad course. Both the Caesar and Blue Cheese and Pear salads, both were delicious. Entrées, fillet, lamb strip, and scallops. Each dish was so full of flavor and beautifully presented. The dirty money cocktail was unique and tasty . We also loved the espresso martini and brownie dessert.

    We were seated late. No accomdations for a child dining with us. Buttered noodles were all they could provide, but we had to pay full price for the pasta dish that included lamb. Any other request for additional food required a complete entree order. Not very customer focused.

    The food, drinks, and service were amazing, although perhaps a little pricy. But I’m not really their target clientele as I’m not regularly enjoying 175+ dollar meals. Also, not a huge deal, but the seating was too close together. Had it been a Saturday night and busy we would not have been able to have anything remotely close to a private conversation, since the next table was about a foot away. They should definitely take out a table to increase the distance a bit more.

    As a pre-theater dinner for the Detroit Opera house this was perfect. Great food and drinks and happy hour. Plus you get into the structure early AND then have a really short walk to get to the theater.
