We went for my husbands birthday. Our meal was excellent and the service was perfect. Elizabeth waited on us and did a very nice job. Just attentive enough without being too attentive. She made our dining experience even more enjoyable.

We had the gnocchi with pesto, jambalaya, and pan-fried rainbow trout. The first two were delicious but the trout preparation hid the flavor of this usually tasty fish. Service was attentive and the food came very quickly. Excellent fresh seafood. Would recommend to everyone!

Although the food was good, the service and ambiance were not up to par. We were celebrating our son's birthday and were seated next to the bussing area, so our view was of dirty dishes and waitstaff putting orders in all night. That was very disappointing and made for an unpleasant experience.

We always have great service when we dine here. Our dining experience on August 13th was exceptionally great. Ana was our server and she was on point, she met every one of our needs, everything was correct, everything was wonderful!!

I was upset that I was not given the option to sit inside or outside. I don’t particularly like eating outside and that was where we were placed. The calamari was delicious but I ordered the linguini and clams and the clams that were chopped and mixed into the noodles were like leather. Our server was pretty nonexistent and rarely visited our table. I would have loved another glass of wine but was never asked. It was a very disappointed with the whole experience.

Wonderful variety of of food, impeccable cooking and presentation. Pssst: Michigan has many terrific cideries; why the hell is your one cider offering Angry Orchard, the mediocre Bud Light of ciders? You should do better.

Came here for oyster day August 5th. Interestingly the waiter did not mention the special, I received an email and showed him and he instantly remembered the special. The service was good and prompt. Thought the prices on some of the dishes could be lower, but the food is good.

Celebrated my birthday lunch with a friend on a Monday. We both chose to order whitefish but it was not available and ended up ordering salmon instead. The food was quite good but the service not so much. Our wait person didn't seem knowledgeable regarding wine list and was not helpful in offering other choices instead of the unavailable whitefish. Just because descriptions of how salmon is served is on a tablet does not mean a server does not need to communicate with the diners.

We left. Had reservation and were seated but no waitress ever came after 20 minutes! Don’t take my reservation if it’s too busy and you cannot handle it!

Meh... bland and boring and food isn't fresh. really just a wee better than an olive garden. If we hadn't had a gift certificate we wouldn't have gone. Probably won't go back.

Stuffing in my flounder a little gummy, otherwise food was very good. Drink was excellent. I liked being “almost outside”, but the shade kept tapping me as the wind blew. Waitress was sweet. Husband says his blue cheese scallops were excellent.

Have been at the RSC many times, we ordered 2 drinks and it took at least 15 minutes. Had to ask for bread. Service has been much better in the past, we were not happy with this experience.

Went there for my birthday. The birthday deal at Main Street Ventures (the parent company of Real Seafood and many other Ann Arbor restaurants) can't be beat. My mussels appetizer and Swordfish entree were excellent. Service was very good. Attentive but not overly so.

The overall meal, location and service were great. The only comment I would make was with the paella there was little or no saffron and one of the clams was marginal about opening up so I did not eat it. Also, in the clam and mussel appetizer there were a couple mussels that did not open so we did not eat.
I would suggest the servers or people that plate check those types of things out--not open dead when cooked don't eat.
