Expectations exceeded reality unfortunately.

The restaurant was essentially empty, with one other table occupied besides ours. The decor is more casual than expected in this price range, and the menu is fairly limited as well. We ordered starter cocktails, which were reasonably good, and a appetizer of fried calamari and shrimp. This was very "fishy"and greasy and I wouldn't order it unless this is your thing. The entrees were nicely prepared and much better tasting than the appetizer.
Unfortunately the waiter forgot to bring us the wine we had ordered with our entrees, despite the fact there were only two tables to serve at that time. We opted to skip dessert as we basically just wanted to leave, but he brought out a slice of chocolate cake for the three of us to split, as I'm sure he knew his tip was not looking good at this point.
The cake was probably the best item we had, so we left a good tip.

Overall, decent food, marginal service and ambience, wouldn't return. Unfortunate as it sounds like it used to be a good restaurant that has just gone downhill.

What should have been an enjoyable evening at an old favorite was less than stellar due to very poor service. It took her 10 minutes just to acknowledge our presence and take a drink order. When it came time for dinner orders she walked away before 1 of our group was able to complete his order. The food runner complained that she had screwed up so that both the appetizers and entrees were in no semblance of order. At best she was inattentive. All 4 of us commented at one point or another about the bad service. The Rattlesnake is too good to have such substandard help.

First time dining at the Rattlesnake Club and the food and ambience did not disappoint. For a Saturday night, the restaurant was surprisingly empty, but the service was great. Loved everything from the friendly hostess to the support staff who kept our water glasses full and made sure we tried both the housemade focaccia and crackers, which were the staffer's personal favorite. Complimentary dessert for the birthday boy was also appreciated. After dinner, we walked along the river front. Great food, great atmosphere, and fantastic location.

The ambience of the Rattlesnake Club is very alluring and the waterfront view of the Detroit River enhances the experience. Need to address parking through vouchers, especially for those who want to patronize the establishment on a recurring basis.

We had such a great experience for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. The waitress was absolutely wonderful, the drinks were great, the appetizer/bread was really good, our dinner was DELICIOUS, and the dessert with "Happy Birthday" written on it was a yummy great touch! The view of the Detroit River was breathtaking as well. Thank you so much for making his birthday dinner so fantastic!

We had our anniversary dinner here and we were both first timers. My husband and I each had the 8oz. filet with crab. They were cooked to perfection as I don't like mine as rare. We shared sides; asparagus and mac&cheese. Just as good as the steaks! Wine was very good and we probably should have just gotten a bottle. The chocolate ravioli was a great finisher. It's kind of like stepping into the 1980's but food and service made us not notice the surrounding decor. We'll definitely be back!

This was our first visit to the Rattlesnake and we were extremely impressed. We were running late due to construction on the highway so I called to let them know, they were very kind and said no worries. Our table would wait! We were seated right away upon our arrival and were greeted by our waitress with a smile. She was very knowledgeable and patient in letting us take our time with previewing the menu. We ordered the calamari which was fantastic! Tender, not chewy! Our entrees were exquisitely paired with complimentary sides! I had the lamb with curry coconut lentils and my husband had the boursin filet. The presentation of our plates was a work of art! For dessert we shared the flourless cake and enjoyed a slice of heaven. We were so happy to come here on our last night of Broadway in Detroit. I would definitely reccommend the Rattlesnake to our friends and family! We are looking forward to our next meal!

It was perfect dinner for group or a couple prior to concert or broadway show or opera, it met our criteria on fine dinning with good food, quiet environment, modern decor and artwork. I found it's great location 6 min away from the Fisher theater, restaurant participated in discount promotions 25% off for people who attended the performance, that was great idea. My husband and I will be returning in the summer for outdoor patio for wine testing.

Decent food, but nothing exceptional; excellent service. Unfair 21% service charge for table over 6. Most other places will have service charge of 18%. Would NOT recommend for tables where this charge would be added. Dining service is its best feature at this point.

Our first and last time there. We walk in and there was no host finally after 10min one comes up asks me if we have a reservation I said yes and he could not find my name or didn't know how to use the computer. server was reminded after 15min of being there to come to us by one of the hosts there that gave us water. bread was dried and food was not good at ALL. I was not expecting it to be like this for the area its located in and the atmosphere they should have better food and service

We have always wanted to dine here, as it is an iconic Detroit restaurant. We very much enjoyed our meal ... the steaks were spot on. The prices seemed a bit higher and portions were a bit smaller than what we would typically pay for at other high-end restaurants, thus the 4-star rating.

Went to the restaurant after seeing they were offering a Detroit Restaurant Week menu. Easy to get a reservation at our desired time and they had our table ready within two minutes of arrival. We were really surprised to learn once we were seated that they were not offering their normal menu in addition to Restaurant Week options. Thankfully, we were happy with the limited menu options. Our selections (spaghetti squash with vegetables and the salmon) were delicious! Restaurant was perfect for conversation and a leisurely meal. I would definitely return!

The Rattlesnake Club never disappoints. We were delighted to see it on the Detroit Restaurant Week list, and took advantage of the special menu offerings. We especially enjoyed the outstanding appetizer (crab cakes) and unique dessert (raspberry martini), along with the always perfectly-prepared prime rib. It's a rather long drive for me, but surely was worth every mile.

I took a date here for Detroit Restaurant Week and was not disappointed. The hostess was very friendly and seated us promptly. The food was fantastic and worth the price we paid for the three course meal. The service fairly quick while also being unobtrusive enough to talk without a waiter interrupting you every 3 minutes.
