    I was very much looking forward to the entire experience: the ambiance, the food, the service etc. Out of that entire beautiful place, we were seated in the corner near the kitchen, bar and where they keep the water bucket. I felt like I had less of a customer experience and more staff. No view except for staff coming and going by our table headed in and out of the kitchen. The service was outstanding, the food very good, the pricing is really high, but you know that.. but my experience was diminished by my seat.

    I took my husband for Father’s Day and as usual, we weren’t disappointed. The filet mignon that my husband had was excellent. My branzino was superb. And the calamari is the best we’ve ever tasted! The river view is so beautiful.

    Food was good as usual. Waitress was very dishonest. We asked for substitutions because of food allergies. She made suggestions then charged us extra for them. Eg flounder with crab legs was $125.00. Rip off. I go the joe Muir’s a lot. I am now reconsidering and may eliminate this restaurant from my list

    Food & service were excellent however our table was not. Disappointed that my husband and I were sat in the bar section in front of an area where dirty plates were being placed/scraped directly behind us. I made this reservation weeks in advance for our anniversary and noted that on the reservation. Felt that it wasn’t taken into consideration at all and that our table was for someone who just walked in with no reservation.

    Awful experience - so awful that we actually left our table and went to Prime+Proper instead (which was amazing btw). When making the reservation for our 12th wedding anniversary, we requested a window seat. They first sat us right next to the bar behind a pillar. We asked to be moved by a window. The manager explained “window seats are for parties of 5 or more”. He then “accommodated” our seating preference with a corner table next to a mirror, across from the windows. A table so cramped that several people bumped into it, nearly spilling my husband’s water on his lap. We then quickly noticed couples of 2 sitting at window seats with plenty of extra empty tables (I counted 4). I asked again, “what does a person have to do to get a window seat? You told us 5 or more and this is clearly not the case”. The manager attempted to say he did not that say, before correcting himself by saying “I meant the booths by the window”. I asked, “ why can’t we be sat at one of the empty tables by the window, it was in our reservation request.” He stated, “people book reservations MONTHS in advance and we organize that way, you only booked 1 week ago”. Very condescending, and I hardly believe people are booking so far in advance, Joe Muer is not so exclusive to where that is necessary. He offered to move us outside in the elements, which I was not fond of and said he’ll give us a minute to think about it and come back. He NEVER returned. Tables by the window remained empty and they refused to seat is at one per our reservation request. It was awful customer service/care/consideration. Gave us the worst seats in the house x2, and he never returned to confirm our decision. Thank goodness we could make a last minute reservation elsewhere and was able to enjoy our anniversary dinner. I would give Joe Muer zero stars if I could. Not at all accommodating and their reservation system is trash. Joe Muer should remove preference request from the system if they won’t honor it.

I’ve been there several times and I’ve never been disappointed. And to top it off our server Wayne, was Awesome! He was very courteous, extremely knowledgeable about the menu and his customer service was out of sight. I will never return to this restaurant without making a request for him as my server. The Food and Service is A1, here at Joe Muer! I’d highly recommend it to to Everyone!!

    This restaurant is wonderful! Seated by the window over-looking the Detroit River and Windsor is a great start to the experience. Fresh oysters accompanied with a Black Orchid (signature drink) is amazing and refreshing. Entrees are piping hot, fresh and delicious. Service is professional, attentive and always present! Had a great time and will join again and again! Thanks to the entire JM staff for making this a great dining experience.

    This is our favorite place to come on special occasions (this occasion for my birthday dinner) specifically for the sushi. However, it wasn’t until we had ordered an expensive bottle of champagne and enjoyed some appetizers until our waitress decided to notify us that they do not serve sushi on Mondays or Sundays. This was extremely disappointing for us and let her know it was never mentioned to us nor is it anywhere on the website prior to booking a reservation so we got up and left. Huge bummer and wanted to share for anyone’s future experience.

    Calamari was a great appetizer and the coconut cake is an amazing dessert. We would go back just for that. However, we went for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Our service was mediocre at best. We didn't get refills and had to flag the server down several times as they disappeared from the dining room for extended periods of time. The entrees were definitely not worth the price. I had the Roquefort wedge that was doused in entirely too much dressing. Other diners had the burgers which would have been fine at a quick serve restaurant but did not warrant the high cost. Overall the whole experience was underwhelming. There are much better restaurants to try in the city.

    I spent over $600.00 for just me and my wife here. We ordered the Alaskan king grab full pound. Needless to say.. it seemed more like 40 dollar single crab legs from Meijer or Walmart. The drinks weren’t top notch. The servers there were not even close to what the price should get for quality. The bartender lady and my server were both not a high end quality service. Maybe Red Robin or Applebees but I was was expecting my server to come around more, ask if I needed a new drink, ask if the food was okay… not to mention he tried to short me my change of 75 dollars when I paid my tab. There was a hair in my wifeys appetizer and they just pulled a shrimp out and still billed us for it. Our server brought the people directly behind us hot towels after their meal and didn’t offer us one. Speaking of which, their tab was about half of ours. I would say overall this place is about a 2 star restaurant. Nice setting, nice dining but the quality of the services and food is just not what you’re paying for. If I take my wife out for her birthday to a 4star restaurant and spend of 600 dollars i expect it to be top notch! I don’t think we will be coming back here.

    Grand Prix weekend drove the high energy Saturday night. Wait staff manage it pretty well. Thought floor manager could have participated more in making sure drinks and complementary appetizers were on the table while guests waited to order. Time for a complete remodel. The entire restaurant is very dated from top to bottom. It will be a much cleaner venue when completed. Ditto for Andiamo RenCen.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Joe Muer's downtown. It was wonderful! The manager was accommodating, the waiter was excellent, the food was delicious. Everyone was welcoming, even though the restaurant was very busy. We had the best shrimp ever in the appetizer shrimp platter, and my South African lobster tail was sweet and succulent. The stuffed flounder was prepared well, and the Key Lime pie was authentic! We had a great table by the window and had a lovely evening!

    1st and foremost prices are on the steeper side but won't be disappointed. We order Oysters Rockefeller- on the money, taste and quantity and Sea Scallop- cooked perfectly!! Lobster Bisque, as recommended by another reviewer, delicious not salty or fishy by any means! The Short Rib and Tiger Shrimp Entre delicious as well. Perfectly prepared, portion was not disappointing. Tender, juicy and presentation very professional. Also ordered the Tiger Shrimp Diablo- Shrimp were big juicy and quite a few, expect the spice too. It wasn't spicy to where you couldn't eat it and still had red sauce notes on top of perfectly sautéed spinach and potatoes. Not over or under sauced either. As recommended by another user we ordered the Coconut Cake to go, this was the only thing that was just alright, but I think it's a personal preference. The only thing is next time we request table by the window. Service was very professional and Not Rushed. My Fiancé is a slower eater (likes to digest) and they weren't rushing you the second you put down your fork asking if you needed it wrapped up. Very professional all around. Will go back as there are more things on the menu that need to be tried and no disappointment with our first experience. Very Satisfied with quality of ingredients, presentation and portions. You won't leave hungry nor are portions so big that one human shouldn't consume in one sitting.

    Don't remember our servers name but but he was very good! We got the lobster bisque which was honesty disappointing. Honestly, all of the food was just a little bit disappointing. The save graces was the dessert! Wow yummy. Would recommend for the drinks and dessert. Save your money on the food.
