We absolutely love the Whitney. One of our first dates was to the Whitney and we have been going there ever since. We just celebrated our 27th anniversary with you and any time we want a fabulous meal with beautiful ambiance and great service, we choose the Whitney.
Fabulous experience, including food and service. Make sure you arrive early and experience an adult beverage at the Ghostbar.
The Whitney is awesome!!! So beautiful, amazing staff from valet to coat check to bartender to waitress!! The food and presentation is exceptional! We will definitely come to the Whitney again for our next special occasion!!! Thank you so much for all you do to make the Whitney very special and beautiful!
Wonderful experience! Service and food was top notch
A lovely, elegant, historically mystical, dining experience😌❤️.
Love the Woodward window view an food was delicious. “Salmon An beef Wellington “ were the chosen entres ...
Our visit started off with a tour given by Jim. That was an outstanding experience and Jim really knew his history. The food was awesome and my only complaint is regarding our server Keith. We went quite a bit of time with empty wine and water glasses. This really put a sour note on what was an amazing evening otherwise.
The setting and service Excellent. The food was adequate. Big plate small portions HUGE price.
Prepare to spend a lot of time here. The pace is slow and elegant. Sea food sauté is amazing
Great , loved everything
Keith’s service was fantastic and the food was delicious!!
I have been to the Whitney several times, but never for their brunch!! And, my goodness was it worth it. Excellent service, excellent food. We were all expecting portions on the smaller side, and were surprised at how big each of the three courses were. The eggs Nantucket were delicious. The crab cakes were filled with wonderful crab and cooked perfect. You can’t go wrong with any of the dessert options. Each person in my party ordered something different and we all sampled one another’s!! Yum!
Food was delicious and staff was very helpful!
Enjoyable atmosphere, piano in the background, dim and fitting lighting for the setting.
Romantic, beautiful and amazing. And the staff was amazing too! I already want to go back!
First time here and it was great!! Food was amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Loved the atmosphere, very romantic. It was a perfect valentines day dinner!
This was our first visit. The food was top notch and perfectly prepared. The only reason for a 4-star instead of 5 is the inconsistency of the drinks. Same drink, very different from the ghost bar and the dining room. We will definitely return.
Marisa was super attentive and enhanced our experience.
It would have been a better dining experience if the piano wasn't so loud. It was difficult hearing each other.
1st time there and we had a wonderful time. The food was incredible. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We will definitely be back - probably for brunch on a Sunday.
Service was delightful. Ambience is some of the best I’ve been at... what a cool place. Free tour. Awesome separate bar area upstairs with different sitting areas. Amazing beef Wellington and calamari... best I ever had. First class experience all around. Was a great Valentine’s Day. Thanks!
A beautiful, must try restaurant- But. We had an excellent waiter and lovely dinner downstairs. But, it was so cold in the dining room we had to ask for our coats back and put them on. It was so cold in the restrooms you could store meat in them. Two managers abruptly interrupted us to ask how things were. Two. No courtesy or tact in the interruptions. Then upstairs for dessert it all went South. No silverware or napkins, absentee waiter, coffee issues, tortoise like service. Great desserts, but the poor service stood out. How many times can you say I'll get that right away or I'll be right back and then ignore the table? He sure had a system.
This was an exceptional fine dining experience! The service was seamless, from the hostess to our server. The pianist was delightful and talented, and our food was perfect! Will be back for my next special occasion!
Wonderful food and service - fantastic/ historic venue facing Woodward avenue - a little pricey but an above level experience that is worth it for a special occasion.
This was my first visit to The Whitney. As one of the city’s renowned landmarks, I should have taken cues from the relative mum about the dining experience here. Unfortunately, the food was underwhelming, some of dishes being served cold and lukewarm. For its reputation and price points, I expected to be dazzled. I had the filet mignon (because NY Strip was not offered). It was prepared well (medium rare) and was very flavorful, though not as hot as I prefer. The green vegetable selection was limited. There weren’t a lot of patrons during the time we were there so I don’t understand why we couldn’t get fresh, hot from the grill food. The ambiance was very intimate and dimly lit, more suited for couples than a group dinner. We had a stellar, attentive server. The bathrooms are outdated. Definitely needs some improvement before I can recommend with high praise.
Delightful brunch before DSO concert. Brunch menu was extensive for all tastes.
Our experience was fantastic! From the time we drove in, until the time we left, everything went how a “date night” should go. Our server, Ron, was knowledgeable and his service was over the top! We’ll be back and will bring a group to share another great experience.
Ghost Bar service was awful. Took 30 minutes to get 4 drinks.
Our server at The Whitney was great. The food came out very slowly. It was an odd night compared to what we are used to at both places. Will give it another try based on past experiences.
Fantastic food, albeit on the small side for the price but your also paying for the ambiance and great service. Family loved it, even the kids menu was great. They included a free birthday desert for my wife and daughter. Have always enjoyed our time at The Whitney!
Everything was great for a surprise birthday. The small touches were greatly appreciated!
This place was great. Brought my wife for 40th birthday. They gave her the menu wrapped in a bow and her dessert was awesome. Was given a history lesson of the building and the whitney family.
It was a thoroughly fabulous experience!
Everything was excellent but they need to invest in new dining chairs as they were in extremely bad shape and uncomfortable
The mansion is beautiful, the food is amazing and the staff was excellent!!
Food highly overrated and expensive not the best in taste.
2 birthdays. Made both feel special with Birthday menus and deserts. The tour after dinner was fantastic.
This was a awesome experience!!!! The food was excellent!!!! Will be returning.....Beautiful!!!
Auto show preview awesome
Step back in time through the front doors of a beautiful late 19th century logging baron's mansion come upscale but not pretentious restaurant that serves a hearty brunch menu to the sounds of a musician playing a grand piano in the lobby. The décor is warm and the service is professional and gracious. My family decided that we will all order different items so that we can share and compare. No one was disappointed. If you are anywhere near the mid-town Detroit area, do yourself a favor and make reservations.
What a fabulous restaurant. We had the Chateaubriand for two. The portions are very generous. The presentation was amusing, served table side. Our meat was perfection.
