The Rattlesnake Club
Book your next event with us
It’s a nice looking restaurant and the service was ok but the food was very bland (they put canned fruit on my salmon) and definitely not worth what I paid the chairs they sat us in were old worn out and uncomfortable.
Had the bone in ribeye and it was really good. Lisa and the rest of service staff did a great job with service.
Our server Lisa was excellent. She was extremely busy and we were dining longer than we expected too but we understood. It was one of the best meals we've ever had.
A bit pricey, but well worth it! Our waiter, Edward was wonderful! Wish the weather had been warmer so we could eat outside. Beautiful view!
Edward was great! Food was paced nicely and we enjoyed the evening very much.
I went to the Rattlesnake club in Denver and Loved it so I decided to try this one when I moved back here. Same great service and food. Can't wait to try the other 4 restaurants near Eastern Market.
We asked friends who had lived in Detroit for 30 years to recommend a downtown restaurant and they suggested Rattlesnake. It was a place with simple elegance, a nice view of the river, and excellent food, generally in a gourmet context. It was quite enjoyable to us and appropriate for a college graduation dinner. We would certainly go back, given an opportunity.
Excellent Service Great Food Thank you I would highly recommend
The place was almost empty on a Saturday evening. There seemed to be only one server. He was very good but it took 1 hour and fifteen minutes from when we arrived to get our meals. We did not have appetizers.
As much as we enjoy all the new restaurants popping up in and around the city, it's nice to visit the old school places. The rattlesnake club is authentic in its approach. Excellent steak fish and desserts. Yes, they have craft cocktails and a very good wine list. The ambience is modern situated in the historic Strohs River place complex.. Stunning.
Excellent food, excellent service! Great place for our anniversary!
My family and I enjoyed fantastic service and a tasty dinner before attending Hamilton Friday evening. Thanks to the Rattlesnake staff for a wonderful dinner!
First time at the Rattlesnake Club. The food was outstanding and service was very good with the exception of the server’s poor grammar which, always bothers me. That said, the server and her team very attentive and well trained. We were the only people in the dinning room. We were told that it was because it was off season. The room is very dated and reminds me of a cheap Las Vegas buffet restaurant. But seriously, the food was top notch. We has a calamari appetizer which was served pub style; salmon, scallops and perch. It was all very good. Cocktails were well presented and the flourless chocolate tart was excellent. We weren’t fans of the white chocolate ravioli but it was well executed. As I said to my husband, I’m glad we went, the food was very good but I probably wouldn’t return. The room was a bit depressing.
The family enjoyed the dinner, the service was excellent, food quality was great, all in all a very nice restaurant that we would recommend
The food, ambience, location and staff....all wonderful. Great dining experience.
Always enjoy eating at this restaurant. Food and service is excellent. Have been coming for years.
Very elegant! One of the few restaurants that everyone dresses up for to go out for a special dinner. Quiet dining room that allows for conversation. Formal wait staff that allows you time to enjoy each course. Filet was done to perfection and the shrimp completed the entree. We had dinner before attending Hamilton. It was a special dinner before the show.
The food was out of this world! All dishes exceeded expectations. Highly recommend the chocolate bread pudding.
LOVE the Rattlesnake Club. I am never disappointed with food quality, service or atmosphere. Always a 10. Noise level is low and you can hear your dinner partners. Can't wait to dine here again!!!
It's one of Jimmy Schmidt's restaurants, not many are still around. The Rattlesnake has never disappointed us. It's more expensive but it is worth it. Enjoy
Great food, menu, service and setting. Have been for both happy hour and the regular menu several times a year for the last 4 or 5 years. They survived the lean times and deserve to be back on top.
Saturday evening around 6pm and the restaurant was not busy. We valet parked and were seated right away. Friendly and efficient server made us feel welcome and brought drinks that looked and tasted wonderful. NY Strips were done perfectly as was my baked potato. The scallops were delicious but my wife only got three. That's ten dollars a scallop. Yikes. Everything else was a good value. They brought my wife a flourless chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert because it was her birthday. Very nice touch. The noise level was very low, which we like. This is a good alternative to the parking challenges downtown and you get the nice view of the river.
Outstanding service, food is great, drinks could used some work.
Everything with great but our server once we got our food he was nowhere to be found we have to keep looking and searching and getting up just for a bread basket, or it 20mins to find him to get our bill. Than the top he really did not deserve. Paying someone for something they did not deserve is something we felt like we were robbed. Get some better servers
We went the the Rattlesnake for restaurant week! Had an amazing experience!
Even though we arrived later than our scheduled reservation, (I did call to be sure we could still be served), our experience was awesome. We had the salad, calamari, salmon, steak, and cheesecake. I truly enjoyed the food and can't wait to go back in the summer to have an outdoor experience. Thank you, Alicia H.
My overall experience was underwhelming. The environment was too bright for my liking, our waitress kept forgetting things and even brought our bill to use before bringing out the desserts we ordered. Also the food was just okay. The duck was over cooked, the prime rib was way too fatty. The best thing about our experience were the appetizers and drinks.
Went during Detroit Restaurant Week. The atmosphere was amazing soon as you walk In the door. The chairs are uncomfortable and don’t see how people sit there for long periods of time as the waitress expressed to me. I had the duck with purée sweet potatoes. Over all the meal was just ok, the sauce on the duck was bland, the sweet potato had a little to much chipotle seasoning. The Brussels spouts were amazing and the cheesecake was good as well. I am willing to come back to see what their standard menu taste like when the turnaround rate isn’t so high like during DRW.
Great food and service! We were able to take advantage of restaurant week and enjoyed every minute. I will be returning 🤩
We had a wonderful time during Detroit Restaurant Week. The service was grand from the hostess to the table. The menu was great and we just had a great time. I can see why you remain in business.
Thanks for a good time.
Very good night dinner and service. Drinks were great . Apps were on time. Waitress was personable and friendly.
The experience was great, food delicious and choices during Detroit restaurant week were awesome. Plan to return and enjoy the dining opportunities.
Great experience. My second time there and I'll definitely be back!
The food was good, not great. Flavor was there but the prime rib was somewhat tough. Service was excellent, atmosphere was OK, not quite what I expected from a top notch restaurant. I thought it was over priced for what we got. Not a bad place, but not great either.
Went for Detroit Restaurant Week. One of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time. We ate at the bar because the bartender (Brandon) was so engaging and the people sitting at the bar were so friendly. We ended up having all 3 starters from the fixed menu, prime rib and duck from the entree menu and both desserts. First time in recent menu we did not bring food home. 5/5 in all categories and as we travel to different restaurant destinations we will make sure and always return to “The Snake”. Wonderful experience, can’t state it enough.
Detroit restaurant week special menu overall the food was good waiter forgot my Au jus sauce for my prime rib and didn’t box up our desert.
Food was great, service was great! Unbeknown to me it was restaurant week with a limited menu and I feel the person that took my reservation should have told me this! I also think it is time for a restaurant decorating update! In my opinion, a new updated look would bring in more cliental! With the quality of food that is being put out you deserve to be really busy!
Celebrated my Wedding Anniversary here and all I can say is it was a memorable experience and I would highly recommend this restaurant and definitely will return
Excellent duck and sweet potato mash. Calamari was weird served in water glass - should have just put on the plate. Had to dump out. Tasted amazing with the alioli though. Fast attentive service. Would dine again.
Went for restaurant week.
I would expect smaller portions during a promotional event like that.
I thought everything should be top notch.
The food was not hot.
Seemed the server was busy topping off our neighbors glasses.
Wonder if that wasn't the reason my dinner was cold?
Left a tip and wrote off the restaurant.
Will not return.
