    We generally love 220…I’ve literally been going there forever- back to my Homecoming dance in High School. Today was not a good experience. We were seated outside which was nice but it was odd…our friend was inside at the bar & he was joining us for dinner- there was someone at the door that wouldn’t let you passed the bell stand to go get him. Never had that happen. Perhaps Oprah & Prince Harry were inside. We ordered dinner salads & entrees…they arrived at the same time. Really? At this level of restaurant? Not acceptable. It was a strange experience overall for a Tuesday night. No dessert or “make up” was offered for the subpar service.

    I went to 220 because I heard about the good vibes and energy there. I ordered the NY strip and the zip sauce was the best ever. My server Miya guided me through the menu and recommended the best dessert I had the tres leches, by far the best dessert I had. She told me how all the desserts are made in a special kitchen and I couldn’t say no! My server was great I will be back for more excellent service and top of the line desserts

    Beautiful restaurant with a pleasant welcome. Came in for brunch today and was greeted by very nice host and manager. We ordered the steak and eggs and fruity pebble French toast. The filet was a perfect medium rare and the sweetness from the French toast was nostalgic! Our server attentive and kind. Overall great experience.

    A fine place for lunch. It is true that the noise level is a bit high but this can happen. What is not clear is why the management thinks that 'background music' is needed since nothing but the bass notes can be heard. Otherwise, no problems. Parking is nearby and there some outdoor seating.

    This place has been around since the 1970’s. The service and food selection along with the mock of a patio was shameless. The oysters were raw and management refused to take them off of my bill. They actually charge $12.00 for each scallop ordered. Deserts at $25.00 per person. Wake up, you might not like the clientele but, you are not doing very much to elevate the dining experience. Plastic patio chairs, stained menus and overdressed monogrammed manager, who does nothing to remedy a complaint. I don’t mind paying for an excellent experience but, this place has not maintained the high standards of which I am accustomed.

    We drive from Windsor Ontario to eat at this restaurant for lunch it is so good. Their salads are incredible and both my kids said the chicken wrap is the best they have ever had. That is surprising because I thought a chicken wrap is just a chicken wrap. What can you really do LOL The truffle fries are a must and the Birmingham salad.

    Okay my mother, brother, and I went here on a whim. No real plans just wanted sit down dinner before I flew back home. THIS IS THE BEST PLACE IN MICHIGAN! We all had drinks, apps, entrees, and dessert and every course was better than the next! Truly amazed at the freshness and deliciousness of everything! I can’t wait to go back. Our service was just as amazing too. Wish I remembered the servers name. Legit one of my favorite restaurant experiences

    The food was pretty good. What was really disappointing is the “salesy” waitress (Elizabeth 1362) describing dishes talking about the hint of smokiness, the flavors, acting like she had the most intricate chefs palette. Normally I would get a steak or two but I was so turned off by her going way overboard trying to upswell everything and the inauthentic was of presenting information. It was just a lot. My parents were very unimpressed with her.

    Stopped by 220 with my coworkers for a quick meal during our lunch hour. My coworker had the impossible burger which she loved and I had the crispy shrimp tacos that I am coming for again! We shared the sweet n spicy calamari and the tender tips which were delicious. We saw a couple of drinks on others table that looked really good but we had to run back into the office. Will definitely be back to try brunch and dinner here!!! 10/10 service
