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.

    The wine collection is impressive The food was very good Unfortunately as I was leaving with guests from France!!! I was followed by the staff yelling “we need a signed copy of the bill”. It was embarrassing and made me look like someone playing games to avoid paying his bill….. Will think twice before coming back.

    This restaurant/wine bar is a hidden gem, right in the heart of the Arts & Entertainment district. It is within very easy walking distance of the Detroit Opera House, The Music Hall Theater, Comerica Park, etc., and with the Opera House Garage right across the street. It has an incredibly well-stocked wine selection (200+ wines by the glass), ample "small plates" dishes for solo dining or sharing, and very reasonable prices by downtown standards. Plus the atmosphere is charming and staff is very friendly and knowledegable. We are a small group of suburban ladies who frequent downtown cultural events. We will be back!

    I can’t remember my waiter but he was fantastic! I met Gordon (GM) who I told I had been there 3 times in the last handful of weeks and he showed us a lovely time. Eventually he introduced me to Jim Lutfy who let our party of 7 sample 4 desserts. Once again the pork chop and grits were amazing.

    This is our second trip to Vertical for dinner, and the food has always been excellent. There are thoughtful dishes and a lot of variety on the menu, with great cocktails and a lengthy wine list. Our server was prompt, informed, and friendly. I have one singular negative to report. The chairs at the "high tops" near the front of the dining area were so uncomfortable! All four of us are somewhat tall (5'7"+), and the height of the table matched with the height of the chairs was nearly impossible to navigate. It's difficult to explain, but no body position makes sense. Your legs are either firmly pressed against the bottom of the table or awkwardly dangling in purgatory above the floor. We were able to laugh it off and enjoy our meals, but this seems like a significant oversight for an otherwise exceptional eatery. We will undoubtedly return to Vertical but will request a low-top table.

    Food was great! Didn’t care for the matcha drink and I’m a huge matcha lover. Our waiter was great but felt rushed by one the bus boys who would come to clear our plates. The tomahawk steak was very good so I would go back for that.

    Let me start with the staff. Iesha, Chad, Jay , Theresa. Amazing and very attentive. The restaurant has great ambience/vibe. I had scallops. The first 2 I ate were not good. The rest were mediocre. Friend had a filet. He said it was amazing. Drinks were very good. I will definitely be back !
