Absolutely great service, food and view. We came here for lunch during the summer and sat outside with a view of the river.

Fairly high end seafood restaurant. Perfect for dates, power dinners or just relaxing at the bar solo and ending the evening. Great food and the staff go out of their way to make it a positive experience. Recommended to dress appropriately to the cost which is up there.

I have been here a few times now and the service each time is super slow. The burger for lunch was overcooked and dry. Sticking to soup and salad seems to be the way to go. The sushi is pretty good however its not chilled and comes warm which is weird. The best thing they have is the coconut cake.

Excellent views and impeccable service are the highlights of this classic Midwest restaurant. The bottled wine selection is also good (though by the glass is fairly limited), and happy hours are quite lively. The menu is conventional (burgers, steaks, seafood, salads) and has some real stand-outs (lobster bisque is perfection). However, the overall effect is risk-averse, predictable and not so appealing after the first visit: You won't find a lot of Thai chile speasoning, pesto glazes, watermelon gazpacho or other contemporary touches for foodies, and there doesn't seem to be a big difference in the menu from season to season. I wish the chef would take a few more risks and offer some items that are a bit beyond the typical local comfort zone of well-done salmon or steak; you can accomplish this without alienating anyone, and get beyond buttery sole meuniere. Surprisingly for such a conventional restaurant, the Caesar salad was not properly pre-dressed, and it came coated haphazardly in a dressing that was too creamy, not garlicky enough, and heavily blasted with powdered Parmesan (big demerits here -- should have been shaved!). The sushi is OK but not on the same level as the former Southfield haunt Musashi. The restaurant is best known for its large dessert cart, which indeed has some delicious offerings but is not uniformly excellent: The carrot cake is tooth-rattle sweet, and the signature coconut cake is bland. However, key lime pie is delicious, and the molten chocolate cake is dreamy. Overall, a classy place if you have an unambitious palate and are mostly interested in service, view and the see-and-be-seen business vibe -- but foodies will find little to surprise and delight them.
