I love this place. The Doorman - Dorian Graves really kicks off a wonderful evening. It has the old school clubby atmosphere. The steaks are incredible and not grossly over priced like they are at some other newer steakhouses in downtown Detroit...especially P&P. The wine was excellent and well priced and the drinks were "stout!" Service (Ericka) was excellent too and she was very attentive, but not hovering. We will be back again and again...

Bacco's is an "all time" favorite! The ambience, service and food are outstanding. You start with breadsticks and parmesan cheese with either a Paper Plane or glass of your favorite wine. brussels sprout salad is light and wonderful, pasta is outstanding and the whitefish piping hot and delicious. We are anxious for Bacco's to remodel and redefine the next chapter! See you all soon and thanks for a wonderful place to dine !

My wife and I enjoyed a nice date night at Brighton Bar and Grill prior to enjoying live theater at The Wilde Theater. I had the special which was a short rib dish and my wife had the filet. We both got salads and dessert. We thought all the food was delicious, our waitress was awesome and the ambiance was very nice. We will eat here next time we're in Brighton!

Me and my friend loved our dining experience at Eddie V's! We're not the biggest seafood fans but we enjoyed the 8 oz filet mignons. We also got the truffle Mac and cheese, IT WAS AMAZING! The ceaser salad on the other hand wasn't the best. If you decide to get sides be sure to ask for them split so you can share. The side alone is huge. Anthony was the best server I've ever had.
