    We came for our anniversary dinner which I stayed in the res and when we got there they tried to seat us at in my opinion the worst table in the place-it was a small 2 top in a very heavy traffic area and right by the kitchen and was also very very loud-not exactly a romantic table for our small celebration. We decide to sit at a high top in the bar. The blonde hostess was less than thrilled to accommodate us-not the best first impression. After sitting for a while the dining room manager came by and was very welcoming and kind-he offered us champagne for our anniversary which was very nice! Our server then came to the table and he was very nice as well although was obviously very overworked and told us it had been a very long day-so we felt bad for him. We ordered an app and a bottle of wine and later ordered our meals. The app took forever to come out then the message came very quickly behind it so we sent it back and asked for more time to enjoy what we were eating. Unfortunately that ended making our meal very very late-literally this overpacked restaurant became completely empty and we still hadn’t received our meal despite sitting there waiting for a very overly long time. We very much enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant-the wine-a vegan server who came to the table with our apps and the manager. Unfortunately all the rest left us not wanting to go back or recommend to any of our friends. We came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a very good foodie friend but we were very disappointed. We still enjoyed our anniversary very much and didn’t let it get us down but we won’t be going back any time soon sadly. Hopefully others will have a better experience especially for a special occasion then we did!

    Our first time did not disappoint. While it seems they are still working out some staffing kinks (we were there prior to a concert as were many patrons) as service was a bit slow, our server was helpful and kept us informed. The food was all very good, but the highlights were the Scallop Rossini and Duck Leg Confit. The Bistro Burger was also extremely tasty. We will certainly be back.

    A beautiful room. One could be on New York's upper east side.Food was excellent and our wait staff was pleasant and friendly. The big problem: the restaurant was almost empty yet our before lunch cocktails took almost 15 minutes. Then our cold appetizer arrived at the same moment as our hot food hardly making for a civilized lunch. We were trying to eat both at the same time. A suggestion-almost all true French bistros would offer a high quality bread of some sort with the entree. Indeed, one of the joys of French bistro food is warm and tasty breads. On the plus side-the food was excellent and the cocktails perfect. Detroit needs a restaurant like the bistro and the setting and location are superb. I plan to return and look forward to even higher levels of service and food.

    From the moment we arrived the staff was top notch; letting us enter the restaurant a tad before opening as it was about to rain. The food was very well prepared and scallops were perfectly cooked (as most tend to over cook, these were perfect) mussels had a tiny amount of sand in them which is why this doesn’t get 5 stars. The French onion soup is on the sweeter side, but delicious in its form. Worth trying, and will certainly be back.

    We were celebrating our 38th Anniversary. Couldn’t have asked for a better restaurant. Everything was pure perfection. The service, ambiance and food was superfantastic! I would rate them higher if I could. I had the scallops (Coquilles St. Jacques)- by far the best I have ever had and one of my top 3 meals of all time. My husband had the Steak Au Poivre and Lobster soup - also done to perfection. Our friends had the Ragout and Caesar salad and Steak Au Poivre with Lobster soup. Definitely going back soon and can’t wait to try the Braised Short Rib. This restaurant does not disappoint. Our server was also excellent - knowledgeable, just the right amount of attentiveness and on the ball. Such a perfect experience- thank you!

    The cocktails and food were very delicious. We had the steak tartare and escargots for hors D' Oeuvres. For entrees we had the steak frites and the ragout which were plentiful and delicious. Our waiter started out very attentive and present he disappeared for a while after entrees had arrived. Still a very good experience all around.

    The food is amazing. The presentation is gorgeous, and the thought behind the dishes we had was great. The ambiance in the restaurant is almost quaint with some Art Deco touches. It is a little noisy, but it seems to add something to the feel of the place.

The hostess wished us Happy Anniversary, our waiter, Nate served us a champagne toast, even the manager gave his good wishes. The food was delicious. Top marks to the chef!
