We are never disappointed in our experience at the Whitney. Always great food, great service and a beautiful venue.
Great place for a special occasion. Also good for conversation, very quiet. Side dishes very generous size. Food very tasty and unique.
Outstanding experience. Food and service was exceptional. Cant wait to go back
The brunch was good overall. The restaurant was nice. The main courses were tasty. Service was good. The chairs were uncomfortable and looked worn. The desserts were sub-par.
The food, service, and ambience were all first class! I ordered the pork chop, and it was amazing! Celebrated my wife’s birthday in style...
Had not been to the Whitney in about 25 years.....the service and food was excellent then and continues to be that today.....well done well done Whitney!!!
The building is still pretty. The view from our table which overlooked to the garden was nice. Tea selection was poor. The only selection offered were a herbal drink and a fairly nice Earl Grey. Herbal drink is not a tea for tea drinker. The scones were a bit too sweet. Sandwiches were nice, especially the tiny Wellington's. The desserts were uninspiring.
Amazing. Great food and service
This was a fantastic place - the staff were exceptionally friendly and competent. The food was also excellent and we would gladly go again when we are in town next. Highly recommend all, including the tour of the mansion after your dinner!
Once in a lifetime experience! Treat for all the senses.
Delicious drinks! Food was of good quality. Service was excellent!!
An excellent environment with excellent food and our server, Lisa, was beyond wonderful. The mansion is a true joy.
Everything was excellent. The piano player even played Happy Birthday for me. Eddie our waiter went above and beyond. He truly made my birthday a great one.
Great atmosphere and food! Definitely take the tour!
We celebrated my daughter’s birthday. The food, ambiance, and service were very excellent. We will be returning!
Great experience. Incredibly expensive, but you get what you pay for, right? Our server was wonderful, very professional. My wife had wonderful time on her birthday. Will come back.
From the first steps up to the front door you are greeted with smiles and enthusiasm by all staff. They knew it was my birthday and hasd a special menu with Birywishes on it for me when we arrived. The host was cherry and we were checked on by numerous staff and manager or owner to am unsure but he was humble and welcoming. Our waiter was amazing, it was his second day and he was so attentive and friendly, he offered great suggestions and explained anything we needed. As for high end restaurants we felt so welcomed and the food was delicious! They made my 40th birthday dinner spectacular
Our waiter was way too familiar for a fine dining anniversary celebration. He rested things on the table, reached across me to point at my food, teased my husband that he counted on his fingers how many years we had been married. My husband did not. He even told another anniversary table across the room how many years we had been married and that my husband had to count on his fingers. Again, my husband did not. It was creepy and awkward.
Joel the pianist was absolutely incredible, as always.
Women bathroom smelled. Beef was over cooked. Service was great. Piano player was great
The Whitney is one of my favorite restaurants downtown Detroit, my husband took me there for my birthday and it was exceptional. It was our first time in the Woodward Room, the ambiance was inviting and peaceful and overall did not disappoint. Highly recommend for anyone!
We gathered for a family reunion brunch and were very pleased with the excellent service and of course food! We are planning our next get together as we enjoy the Whitney very much.
Not like what we e had in the past. The food was not great. We were looking forward to the crab legs that we had before and they aren’t in the menu anymore. The steak and lobster were less than desired.
Had a nice dinner, food was excellent as was the service. Only negative was after dinner we went to enjoy an after dinner drink in the Ghost Bar and there were several young girls Dressed in very short cut off jean shorts. And a few guys in tee shirts and ball caps .
One order was not put in so 1 person had to wait until their meal was cooked- we were about finished eating when hers came. Steak was medium to well instead of medium rare.
My daughter and I enjoyed dinner at the Whitney before heading down to the DSO. It was perfect. Service was perfect. Food and drinks were excellent.
The Whitney is an extra special experience that belongs on the bucket list of people in the area. We are not red meat eaters so the bill was not as high as it would be if we did. Very happy they made our wedding anniversary special. We want to go back.
Great, time! We to the place it all began. 10 years after getting married at the Whitney we returned and what a treat it was. India, our facilitator for the evening, was amazing. India, did an brilliant job of helping us celebrate, providing some additional magic in a very sly way. I cant say enough about how great she was and the entire staff. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was special. We will be making it a yearly visit for anniversary, wondering why it took 10 years.
Beautiful tea in a elegant setting. We loved the scones and the special blend of tea, and the service was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!
The mansion is a beautiful spot to share a meal with coworkers, family, and friends. The rooms are exquisite.
The food is delicious and service is fine.
Girlfriends 23rd Birthday
Father’s Day brunch was delish. Food choices were plentiful and presented wonderfully. Only critique was the coffee was lukewarm at best. A neighboring table was quite loud, but ambience was delightful.
Superb in every way
Our server was excellent! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Everything we ate was delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for a special occasion!
Great dinner the night before a family wedding
We ordered a meal for our daughter valued at $29 and the food was disgusting. The fries were stale. Additionally, the overall experience was very poor. The server was obnoxious and violated our space and privacy by constantly touching my daughter and my wife and hugging my daughter.
From a value perspective, and we go out to dinner a lot as a family, and for business, I can undoubtedly say that it is outrageously overpriced for the quality of food you receive.
In conclusion, it is highly unlikely that we will return for a meal there ever again.
The place was beautiful but when we ordered our food it took them an hour and when they finally brought it out it was cold and the steak was way over done it was upsetting cause it was my moms birthday she ate her food by herslef everyone that got there before us already ate and left we got there at 715 sat down i didnt get my food till 845 the waitress never came to fill our drinks up we had to ask someone else after the first 20 min went by. The manager was very sweet he noticed how long everything was taking and apologized thats the only reason i would recommend coming here besides it being a beautiful place. Im sure the food is great but for this ti be my first experience and to bring my mom for her birthday it was pretty bad and they are supposed to have birthday specials its the tbone steak meal getting it for free with the price of another meal they never told us or took it off the bill.
Beautiful architectural building. Enjoyed the dining experience. A bit pricey for food & wine.
Certainly a bright spot in the Detroit dining scene. The history of the mansion and its presentation was very well done. The location provides for quiet dining and good potential for group dinners. The food was passable but nothing outstanding for the price. The service was attentive. Worth the visit to this landmark.
Wife and I went there for our 25th anniversary. Service was excellent and food was outstanding! Loved the architecture as well. We had never been there before, as we don’t like to spend a ton of money eating out, but for this occasion we did splurge. A bit pricey, but expected, and well worth it!
Muscovy duck and calamari were excellent. Live piano player was just the right volume and played well known pieces. Chairs were creaky and a bit uncomfortable and table placement cramped due to layout of rooms.
