Beautiful view of the Detroit River , the staff was very accommodating, the food was good and we had a great time. It's a secret gem.

The view was great and the food was good, however, the service was horrible with the exception of a person who may have been the bartender who tried his best to doing everything since the hostess (who may have been an owner and who was not nice to our table or any others) and the waitress were no where to be found and very forgetful on most everything.

One of the best locations and views in Detroit, overlooking the River & Winsor. Wonderful staff and food.

This was a bad experience at the Signature Grill. The first time we went, right before a Detroit Red Wings game, it was amazing! This time, we went before the final event at the Joe, and the place was about 1/3 filled. We noticed people waiting a long time, and some got up to leave because they were never waited on. We gave them the benefit of the doubt, and placed our order.

We ordered two appetizers. One came out with the main course and the other they were out of. The waitress did not tell us they were out of it until she brought the main course. Out of our party of 4, only one of us had our order correct. One order came with cold, rock-hard fries that snapped like twigs. One order came with the wrong side, and the other order was a wrap stuffed with green beans, as they were out of asparagus. Mind you, we were not told they were out of asparagus, and when we told the waitress they were green beans, her exact words were, "No, that's asparagus". When I pulled a green bean out and said to her, "That is a green bean", she said, "Oh, sorry, we're out of asparagus". I don't like being treated like a liar and/or an idiot.

We asked to speak to the manager, and she offered to give us free cocktails. We politely declined, as we had to be at the arena by 7, and it was about 6:30 when we got our food after our 5pm reservation. We will NEVER go back to the Signature Grill.

This was my 2nd visit and I brought another couple who vowed to return. Again the food was delicious, our server was delightful, and we all love the view.

From the minute I walked in the door I fell i love with the place. The ambiance, view, table presentation, the friendliness of the wait-staff and finally the quality and tast of the food was superb. I am so looking forward to returning, and showing the place off to my daughter, who lives in Miami, where there are many nice restaurants on the water front.

So disappointed. The picture on the just look good. The place is old and smell. Food is just like you eat around street. Not good for special time.

The first thing the waiter told me was "we are out of some items on the menu". When he showed me what was out, I was surprised because almost half of the menu was out.
I ordered an entrée that comes with a salad and I never got the salad. Over all, it wasn't and very good date. The only thing good about the restaurant is the view. I don't think I will be going back there again.

Worst experience ever. Waited 20 min to get seated even with reservations. Waited 35 min before anyone came to ask us if we wanted water. 45 min after we ordered food and it NEVER came, we had to leave because our we were now late for concert. Nobody even came and said they were sorry for the wait!! Also, the lady who worked at desk was having shots with the guest at the other table! Very unprofessional!!

This was mu second visit to the restaurant. It was very disappointing compared to first visit. Everything we tried to order was out. We were there at 5 on a Wednesday. We were packed like sardines at our table and the only saving grace was our waitress. She was an angel even though they were clearly under staffed. I hope it was an off night and will try again in the future.

Always a warm atmosphere and great food. one of my favorite places to dine... the staff is knowledgeable about the menu and very personable.

Our server was actually the hostess filling in for a server who called off work. We tried to be patient but became frustrated with the long wait to be greeted, again a very long wait to get our drinks and then one of the drinks was made incorrectly. We ordered a couple of apps and left. I honestly would not go back. I think the rating on Open Table is too high compared to what we experienced.

We love the Signature Grille and it's proximity to Joe Louis and nearby venues. The food is great and the servers are very attentive.

Pre redwings game for 8 guests. Reservations at 5:45pm. Seated at 5:35pm. All 8 people ordered sandwhiches in order to keep things quick and easy. Food arrived at 6:52pm...late for the game and had 5 frustrated kids. I personally enjoyed the restaurant, the view, ext but would try and get a reservation a lot earlier. 5:45pm was the earliest so I took a chance. Everyone around us were served. We blamed it on the fact that the majority of the table were wearing Candadiens jersey's. lol. Owner provide us with a free beer, three of us took advantage of that. 4 other tables left according to the waitress because they had no service.
