Not the Wolfgang experience from years ago. Doesn’t compare to the Bel Air restaurant. Food sub par.

We’re very impressed by this restaurant all around. Our terrific waiter, Brian, was extremely helpful pointing out the specialties. We decided on different Asian selections which were superb.
We sat by the window facing the river and we’re entertained by the peregrines diving into the water catching their dinner. Delicious food, friendly, fast service and lovely ambiance.

The steak was great! Large cut. The half chicken was really great also. The skin was roasted perfectly. The chocolate souffle was really good too

Had a very enjoyable evening! The high top in the bar area had a lovely view of the river. Brian, one of the bartenders, took very good care of us. The sausage orzo soup was delicious and the mixed green salad with red onion, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, and champagne dressing was perfect!

All of my experiences here have been great, until yesterday. Appetizer was way too salty, didn’t have my desired entree selection and the service was pretty slow for an empty restaurant. The restaurant had a great ambiance, but just didn’t deliver on the food part of the evening.

We were pleased by the quality and portions. We shared an appetizer pizza, a salad, our entrée, and a dessert.
While it is a bit pricey, you definitely get what you pay for.

The menu is fairly limited. I guess lack of staff is, in part, to blame. Our service was excellent. Jackie is a pro!

Hope they will soon have more offerings.

Our meals were amazing and so was our server Emily! She was very personable and was very helpful in helping us with our choices. My wife had the Hong Kong Salmon and I had the Shanghai Noodles. Both dishes were amazing and then we shared the cheesecake. OMG, best cheesecake I have had, better than the Cheesecake Factory. We will definitely be back and highly recommend Wolfgang Pucks restaurant.

We were greeted for our reservation in a very friendly way. Shown to our table and got our drink order in. The menu is limited right now because of staffing issues which is common everywhere now. We all got a meal and were happy with what we had, good quality tasty food. Skipped dessert. Parking is validated now in the JW Marriott garage now because of no valet parking at the Amway right now. Enjoy.

This is the second time this summer we have been to Wolfgang Puck’s for dinner. Both times we have eaten outside and have appreciated the Grand River view. The outside ambience will be even better when construction on the Amway Grand is completed. Alex was our server on both occasions and he is wonderful; friendly, knowledgeable, perfectly attentive. The food is consistently good and there is something on the menu for everyone.

We were able to get a table outside on the patio, right by the river, close to sunset. The ambiance was perfect. Alex was our server & he was fantastic - he made great recommendations for entrees and dessert and was very attentive without coming over too often.

We went out to eat for my husband's birthday. Took a really long time to get water, then to get drinks, then the waitress brought out our kids dinner before she had even taken orders for us. Most of the work was done by other servers and not our own. Disappointing.

The service was amazing, but the food was not good. It was so salty it was almost uneatable. We had five people at dinner, and everyone’s food was over salted. It is the next day, and I still feel like I can taste the sat from the food.

First time at Wolfgang's. Overall, the experience was a good one. The service and atmosphere were excellent. Four of us shared the brussel sprout appetizer, which was quite good (I normally do not like sprouts). For the entree, two of us had the lobster bisque and the meatloaf dinner, while the other two had the NY strip (med rare). The bisque and meatloaf were quite good, but I would have liked a larger portion for the entree. Both NY strips were properly cooked, but one had a section which was quite chewy. The dining experience was an enjoyable one and I will be returning.
