    The pics of the food on social media & website all looked SO good. It was my first time coming here. I had their Salmon dish & it was very delicious. I did have to cut off the skin because the spices on it were a little too spicy for me but I have a low tolerance for spice so that’s not a dig on their salmon dish at all. Presentation was beautiful. Had 6:30 reservation - noise level was quiet. Our server Chris was great & thought it was pretty cool that Chef Johnny delivered our dinner plates to us! Def would love to come again & again & again.

    Pad Thai appetizer is good 50 dollar steak I asked for medium. Brought rare. I decided to not be an inconvenience and try it. The first 3 pieces I tried were nearly all fat, chewy, and inedible. I sent this back and requested the salmon my wife got that I had a bite and enjoyed. Salmon comes within 10 minutes and I cut into it and it is nearly raw. I call the server over and ask if it is cooked correctly and she tells me it is sushi grade instead of listening to my concerns. I mention I ordered the same entree as my wife and one is rare and the other is cooked thoroughly. At this time I send it back and ask for the bill. She comes back with the bill and says she took off the steak and salmon. I would hope so since both were inedible. Almost no apology for bad service and terribly I’ll cooked food. I recommend avoiding at all costs if you’d like to enjoy your evening out.

    Positives: food and drink are top notch, especially for a restaurant that is not in Detroit!! Try their old fashioned!!! Negative: our waiter was awful and made us feel like we were bothering him by just being there. Definitely did not make it as enjoyable of a dining experience as it should have been. We want to go back again, but will sit at the bar next time.

    Great service despite restaurant being out of multiple things - wine choice, dinner choice x2, etc. Wish flavors/seasoning was more aggressive. Will try again on a quieter night to truly get a sense of this interesting menu.

    Our experience was a "class act" from the moment we walked in 15 minutes ahead of our reservation time. The hostess seated us in a cozy area and immediately brought us complimentary champagne and then refilled our glasses! The ambiance is cool with an old tin ceiling and multiple lettuce varieties growing under lights in the front window. Gotta say I've never seen that before! The seasonal cocktails we tried were great. The menu is small, but I've always looked at that as a sign of a focus on excelling at everything offered. I had the Chicken Tikka, and it didn't disappoint. I will be back!

    Nice ambience. Server was nice. Our appetizers and main meal came out at the same time. So we didn’t really get to enjoy the appetizer. I ordered the pad Thai. It was good. The chef sent out two free desserts, not sure why. We assumed it was because of our meals and appetizers sent out at the same time 🤷🏽‍♀️. As soon as the desserts were given to us, the bill came. We would’ve ordered more drinks or coffee, but it didn’t seem like an option. I would give it another try because it was a nice place, but it did feel like we were being rushed out of there at the end.

    Restaurant was very pretty and the food was mostly good. The only thing was I ordered my steak medium and it was over cooked. I sent it back and when it came back, it was still overcooked. The presentation of the food and drinks was beautiful. Even with the steak "snafu" I would still recommend to others.

    We arrived at 7:20 for our 7:30 reservation and was seated. Our waiter took our drink order and delivered the drinks I’m approximately 15 minutes. He then took our appetizer order which took roughly 20 minutes to arrive. We ordered the burnt ends to share and they arrived cold. Waiter came back and took our entree orders. I ordered the chicken tikka masala and my husband ordered the Thai noodles with shrimp and lobster. We also ordered a bottle of wine. The wine came but the food did not. When questioned about our dinner order, the waiter stated that the system messed up. We waited another 20 minutes and no food. I checked my watch and it was 9:05 and entrees had not arrived. The experience and service was terrible. Diner beware!!!

    Ruined my brothers birthday. 1) Took 20 minutes for someone to check on us when we were seated. I ended up calling over the host and he responded rudely that the waitress would get to us when she gets to us… 2) when waitress finally checked on us she had a sour attitude, and made our party of four uncomfortable. We planned to have dinner but due to such poor service we left after one round of drinks. Thankfully I know the owner of Tequila Blue and he was able to get a us a table and save the night.

    We had a date night here. The food was really delicious! Subtracted 1 star because we booked for a high top table and they sat us in the back booth near the register and that lobster tail on the pad tai was so rubbery, we barely got the the meat out. All in all, we had a great time will definitely come back. The drinks are overpriced so I’d recommend ordering wine.
