Food was excellent, along with service. The fresh baked cookies and ice cream for dessert is something you don't want to pass on.
This latest menu is outstanding! The flavors were so many amazing things, I can only recommend you try it!
The Apparatus Room was an overall fantastic experience. The staff was considerate, thoughtful and celebratory of my sister’s birthday. The food was absolutely delicious! Everything we had - from apps to entrees to drinks - was phenomenal.
Always a positive experience when coming here. The food and drink is excellent and the atmosphere makes you want to stay for hours.
We come here for our birthdays and anniversaries and it never disappoints !
Thank you for choosing us to celebrate your special days. We hope to see you back soon! -Chef Thomas Lents
The food and drinks were delicious. The atmosphere was really cool. Very convenient to downtown, right across from the TCF Center. If you can I would recommend parking in a different area and walking as parking was $18 (likely higher during events).
This restaurant is amazing! We made reservations to celebrate my sisters accomplishments in graduating nursing school. They left out a card for her and each staff we encountered congratulated her. I will say some of the staff was a little weary about having a face mask on due to the virus, even while sitting at the table, but that is understandable. I would definitely recommend for a larger group or a nice family dinner.
Excellent ambiance and service. Delicious food! Very happy.
Great service and delicious food. Chef customized one of their entrées to fit my friend’s dietary needs and it was delicious!
The food is absolute fire! So is the atmosphere! 5*
Very nice setting but limited menu was not vert good at all almost no choices to pick from.
Thank you for joining us, and I'm sorry you did not find enough choice on our re-opening menu. Friday was our first regular service after re-opening from our closure and we are planning on steadily expanding our menu and offerings each week. We hope the next time you join us our menu will have expanded to offer you more choice. Again thank you for joining us and I hope you will come back and see us again. Chef Thomas Lents
The corn soup was delicious!
First time visiting the apparatus room and was really excited about having a good experience. Unfortunately the service we received was terrible. The server didn’t seem
like she wanted to be there, everything was slow, nobody checked on us to see if we needed anything. It wasn’t even busy either. The food when we finally received it, however, was pretty good. Everything we ordered was presented very nicely and tasted great.
Food was great! Place looked great. I liked all the different seating options lots of cool chairs
The Apparatus Room is a beautiful restaurant. We were all excited to come and experience this place that's owned by a formerly Chicago-based Michelin starred chef.
We arrived for our reservation an hour early and service at the bar was very good. I did check in and ask if we could be seated early and the host told us "no way, we're very busy". The place was half empty and stayed half empty. When we were finally seated at 8:45, most of the tables around us were empty. Odd...
We were excited to get the Chef's Tasting Menu and the accompanying wine flight. We were served 9 different food items and 6 paired wines. The service was not bad but a little spotty at times, esp. for a slower night.
The food - a nicely presented, fresh oyster appetizer served with a light rose. Delicious. Then a salmon appetizer served on little english-muffiny circles. Also very good - the best of the evening. It was paired with a wonderful Reisling.
A romaine lettuce hand held salad was served and was not very interesting. Along with a spicy/sweet glazed cauliflower and some nice roasted brussels sprouts.
A fish course - fried skate wing - was served w/a semillion/sav blanc. The wine was fantastic but the fish...skate wing is one of my favorites - this was a large deep fried portion and very dry. It was almost inedible.
A platter of a mole-like roasted chicken breasts & legs came. There was probably 9 pieces of chicken for 3 of us. Crazy portions. Not particularly flavorful &, again, over cooked & dry.
We had a nice time but the total for 3 of us with tip was over $500. And we spent over $100 at the bar prior to being seated. I've been to many wonderful & expensive restaurants around the world don't mind spending a lot of money for a nice meal but this meal was not special in any way. It was one of the more bland and poorly cooked & seasoned chef type meals I've ever had. There was a significant lack of creativity and the over cooked food was truly disappointing.
The food was excellent. Meal and drinks are expensive but worth the ambiance and quality of food. Service was good too.
Everything was great! We will definitely go back.
I had an amazing experience at The Apparatus room! From the amazing service our server Dawn provided right down to every dish we tasted and the ambiance...AMAZING!
Excellent food during Sunday jazz brunch.
Definitely enjoyed my dinner with my mom at the Apparatus Room. She is not the most adventurous eater so when she saw the menu she looked a bit discouraged because the dishes listed have fancy ingredients and descriptions. I ordered for us and she LOVED IT! We ordered the Whitefish Ceasar Salad, the oyster mushrooms, the brussel sprouts, she had the farm chicken and I had the short ribs. Definitely plan to come back with my husband next time we're in town.
Our favorite restaurant in Detroit if you are a bit more adventurous. Definitely get the Chef's tasting menu - not cheap but well worth the money and plenty of food.
Excellent food & service, such ambiance in the atmosphere & decor.
We came to the Chefs table last October and we loved that and then came back on Thursday to experience the Apparatus room and we loved that.
Entire experience was on point! Memorable evening for me and my guests.
Came for brunch. It was our second time here and it was amazing! Would love to come for dinner! Ambiance is fantastic along with the food and service
As usual, the food and service were excellent. The menu offers a nice mix of small plates and entrees many of which are unique in their ingredients and presentation. Although the restaurant is large, when crowded the noise level is high, which, for many, only adds to the energized atmosphere. I would highly recommend the restaurant and bar.
Was such a great place to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The food was so delicious! The opera cake was the most decadent desert I’ve ever eaten.
I really enjoyed everything about the whole place!
My spouse can sometimes have difficulty finding food that he can eat on most menus, but he did, and he liked it!!
My husband and I made a reservation for a special dinner date. We were seated right away, and everything about the night was fantastic. The service was terrific, very friendly and fast. We chose to do the Chef’s choice menu and we enjoyed every part of the experience! I can’t wait to go back, it was so much fun to not know what was next, but every bite of food was delicious! We will most definitely be back.
We really enjoyed our breakfast! The sourdough pancakes were awesome! The decor is awesome and we loved the comfy couches! We will definitely will be back again! Love the location to the TCF Center.
The Chef's choice meal was wonderful. Course after course of fresh, delicious food, using unique ingredients and taste combinations. Some favorites: the petite Maurice wedge salad, the pork cheek medallions, grilled Brussels sprouts finished with a marvelous glaze, and the passion fruit cake with passion fruit mousse and coffee ice cream. The waitstaff were warm, helpful, and knowledgeable about all of our food choices.
Beautiful location, lots or energy, good food, but not fabulous food. I recommend lots of small dishes rather than the expense of a full entree.
The ambience in this restored firehouse attached to The Detroit Foundation Hotel is amazing. The food and drink menu was very creative and delicious. They staff genuinely seemed to enjoy working there with each other. This place is highly recommended.
This remake of a fire hall is a great surprise. The menu is unique, the quality of the food is fantastic and the service was impeccable. A bit pricey but the quality and the experience was worth it. A gem in downtown Detroit.
Was a decent lunch - bolognese was a bit salty to my taste, and a bit "watery" as well. Ambience was rustic, and had some charm to it.
It was our 58 wedding anniversary that day. We met at Hudson's and so we thoiught we'd try what the menu called a "J.L. Hudson Maurice Salad" How dissapointing! Not even close. No Iceberg lettuce, the ham, cheese and what little turkey there was was diced instead of in strips and the dressing was oil instead of creamy. And no roll was served with it.
We have waited forever to get in... i was slightly disappointed bc so many things were out by the time we got there. That was upsetting. Otherwise it was delicious. We did have to ask for another table even though I requested one early on. They moved us but we waited for 15-30 minutes at the bar before they even attempted to move us.
