Wheelhouse is a lovely place! Great atmosphere. Service was awesome! The food was just so-so. We had the steak & fries. Steak was a bit tough with not a lot of flavor, but the Motor City Mule was quite tasty. It’s a nice place though & we will come again & just order something else. Staff was impeccable. More

Excellent restaurant! Molly was our server and did a great job. Hummus appetizer was very good as well as the “design your own” salad and salmon entree. My husband thought the steak frites was a bit salty but still enjoyed it. Love all the windows — lots of natural light and great atmosphere. Walking around the market afterwards was fun and parking is easy. Would recommend to others and will definitely return. More

Went here for our 6 month wedding anniversary, very good authentic Italian food. I got the meatballs my husband got a margarita pizza and a paper plane cocktail and we split tiramisu for dessert. The food was fantastic the waitress was sweet and she had good recommendations! she also let us know all their food is locally sourced. All their wines are from Italy or local wineries. They also make their own pasta daily. I didn’t try it but I really wanna go back to get some!!! The atmosphere is so nice it’s like cozy/romantic I loved the art on the walls. 10/10 would definitely go again More

Absolutely loved our meal. Our waiter knew a great detail of the wines featured, and even gave us reccomendations and samples to test our pallet. We ordered the tomahawk steak with the lobster tail. I don’t think I will ever eat anything better in my life. I wish I took the bone home with me and put it on my trophy mantle. The vaneltines deal they had for the meal made the overall dinner even better! More

We really enjoyed the romantic ambiance along with the river view. Our waitress was wonderful and recommended an excellent wine option. We were also warmly greeted by the hostess/host and a manager as he passed through. The food was delicious, however I would have enjoyed more than two vegetarian options (caesar salad and margherita pizza). All in all, we enjoyed our visit and would recommend to others. More

We had a Friends 'reward for a birthday. When we paid for our meal we noticed that the $25.00 was not deducted from our bill. We had paid with a gift card and were told that since we had enough on the gift card to pay for our bill, the $25.00 reward would not be deducted, but would remain on our account. This is the first time we have encountered such a situation, and we feel that the $25.00 should have been deducted even though there was enough on the gift card. Our food and service were excellent, however. More

My wife and I joined five of our closest friends to celebrate my retirement. Everything about the meal was excellent from the Proseco suggested by Chad, the Somilier through the deserts. We tried several appetizers, and each had a different main course. All were exceptional and very authentic. At the end of the meal, Chad gave us a tour of the wine cellar and special dining room. All in all a great evening with great food, drink, and service. More

Was a concert night at Van Andel and our 6:30 reservation was still sat right on time, food took a bit longer than normal but that’s expected on a busy night, and was worth the wait.
