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.

    Nice atmosphere. Good wine list. We had roast carrots (cumin heavy with two sauces), some lovely robouchon (sp?) potatoes, a light caesar and a scallop crudo. The latter was one of the best dishes that I have ever eaten (seared very briefly with peanuts, jalapeños (?) and scallions).

    We made an early and last minute pre-theater reservation. Warmly welcomed at this "European like bistro". Menu selection was excellent and varied. Our server provided good guidance for our choices of swordfish, mushroom risotto with scallops, and a shared Ceasar salad. Cocktails were excellent (Old Fashioned and a house special which name I cannot recall). The Ceasar salad was served promptly along with homemade garlic encrusted focaccia. The server had pre-split our salad and one was more than enough for two of us. Both dinners were excellent as was the presentation. A decadent espresso and chocolate brownie dessert followed. $100 each inclusive of tax and 20% gratuity. We'll be back!

    Wonderful. Only complaint was the chairs were uncomfortable. Too high for the table we sat at. It was hard to sit close to the table. Our backs and thighs were uncomfortable.

    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.
