The Motown Bistro
THE BEST STEAK IN TOWN!! Great atmosphere, attentive waite staff, live entertainment and overall great experience right in the heart of Detroit!!! I'll definitely be going back..
I took my mother for the first time for Mother’s Day and she enjoyed everything! The food was great, the music was wonderful and the service was spectacular for such a busy day. Will did and excellent job and made us feel very welcomed.
Food was excellent with great atmosphere and live music! Lamb chops were delicious and great with a glass of Pinot North. The only issue I had was with the old-fashioned drink I had. It was not prepared well AT ALL and for such a classy establishment, they need a bartender who can make such a drink CORRECTLY!
Everyone seemed to have an attitude. Our waiter didn’t introduce himself, just asked us were we ready to order after only sitting down for 2 minutes. When we stated we weren’t ready, he didn’t come back close to 10 minutes later. He was very snappy & provided little explanation of any drinks when asked for a cocktail menu. He replied, “idk we have a full bar”. The New Orleans Chargrilled Oysters were an insult to this Louisiana native & only came with 4 & no seasoning ! The New York Oscar was a 2 out of 5. My boyfriend & I asked for medium & were served well done ! Gratuity is already taken out & if it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t have gave him anything. Overall, we won’t be returning.
Restaurant was nice as well as ambiance. The only thing I didnt care for was the $40 tip that was automatically added to my bill. Other than that, it was nice. Good music and good food.
This was my second time coming for dinner. Both times the food was amazing. I didn’t think any restaurant could top Ruth Chris lobster Mac and cheese. Boy was I wrong.. Minus the bread crumbs it was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back to try something else. OMG and the seafood risotto is to die for.
I love the live music and food! We had a great time.
This place is absolutely disgusting. The service is horrible, the food was horrible. The server seemed to be under the influence or had exceeded her mental capacity. She repeatedly brung the wrong items to the table and attempted to make me keep them although they weren’t what I ordered. They sat old expired charred burnt salmon in front of me and called it blackened. When I entered a complaint they told me “Salmon is a fish” and defended the absurd experience. The manager appearance was very unprofessional and unkept. I will never recommend this place or return. This place is trashy, unkept, and exude zero customer service. Do yourself a favor and choose another place.
Amazing experience and great food. The waitress was great and very experienced
This Food is Absolutely Delicious!! OMG!!😋😋. The Staff were so Friendly and Hospitable and I Love the Live Band too.
It was great my husband and me had a awesome experience
I enjoyed the mimosas. More of a selection for brunch
Brought me the wrong wine then charged me for a bottle of wine I never had. When going to reverse the charges I was told the GM was coming back to the restaurant to reverse the charge. Only for the waiter to come back with the $40 difference in cash. Very strange experience and while accidents happen. It just seems as though they aren’t well prepared for errors. Heck the server didn’t even realize they were out of peach cobbler when it came to desert odd that I’m in the middle of service and you run out of your best selling desert seems like a lack of be prepared.
The tableware also had chips in the plates that were used to serve our appetizers. For the money being spent I just expect more. Especially when spending $150 plus for 2 people to eat. Hopefully this is just errors due to Covid and they are working on getting better if they want to continue serving the demographic that their price point is reaching to entertain and service
You have to experience it yourself we had a very bad experience and I will not be returning
Everything was good, I was not expecting my bill to be so much money.
Arrived and seated right away. Not a big place but nice and lovely touch with live piano. New Orleans Ouster were good size and tasty. Catfish nuggets very very tasty. Crab potato skins were also very tasty and actual had some crab.
Food was excellent. I had stuffed salmon and my wife ordered gumbo and calamari. We would order the same if we made the trip again. The place and location is convenient and easy to get there. Parking was easily accessible as well. Inside the restaurant was nicely decorative with Motown music and pictures of it’s stars. Waiting was slightly slow but more than adequate
UNCLE WILL IS A GREAAATTT SERVER!! TOOK MY HUSBAND FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH AND THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!! LIVE MUSIC!! EVEN GOT A CHANCE TO MEET THE OWNER HIMSELF MR. BERT AND HE WAS THE SWEETEST THING... DEFINATELY LOOKING FORWARD GOING BACK SOON.
We had a reservation for 730 and they did not sit us until 8 o’clock. We then waited 10 mins for our waiter. After ordering drinks and food because we were already hungry, it took another 10 minutes for our drinks which was not all brought out at the same time. Appetizers were great but Entree’s were cold ! We sit one entree back and boxed the other to go! The live music was the only thing nice about this restaurant! The manager was walking around in her pajamas not helping a soul ! The waiter was very passive aggressive !
Food was good, waiter was great and the atmosphere was phenomenal
Horrible experience. Cant even believe I'm about to write an actual review. But due to this being a fine dining establishment, due to gratuity that "wasn't" earned being automatic, due to being poorly taken care of by the manager, I have time today. The issue I always have with this place is the food coming out cold. Every time, I've been 4 times now. The 4th was my last. Of course the food came out cold. Even the "melted butter" for my crab was solid. So obviously we sent to it be heated up only for it to still be a little cold. After that We found a huge GNAT in our soup. We were told it was due to the flowers on the table. Even though we were sitting down the whole time and experienced no bugs flying around. Either way, the reason for the gnat wasn't important, it's in our food. We were told by our waitress " We are all Human" as a pat on the back for bugs being in our food. Just POOR. So when she nonchalantly blew off bugs being in our food we asked for a manager, and when se came over she didn't even introduce herself just came and removed the flowers from the table. Manager at the very least didn't even apologize. Won't be back. Food is super overpriced for the overall experience as I am willing to pay for an experience even if the food isn't all the way worth it. This was a lackluster experience. The bathrooms are GHETTO too. I get things go wrong but it's how they are fixed that will create continued support and this place should've been lot my support but they DEFF lost it this time.
Perfect setting for an intimate brunch: great conversation, great staff, (I was serenaded with a wonderful "Happy Birthday"), awesome food, and bottomless mimosas...all while taking Covid precautions and being able to eat out front.
Will be back very nice place especially for couples
It was very nice
Love the piano performance. It was very peaceful. Great atmosphere. Food and table set up was lovely!!
Nice atmosphere, good food and service. Wish they served bread with meals.
Very nice I loved everything about the restaurant.
I will never eat there again. Most of staff did not adhere to wearing masks. My waiter was wearing a dirty worn out mask that kept falling down his face. He then got an attitude when we asked him to pull up his mask. This restaurant is poorly ran.
Walking in and hearing live performer really set the ambiance. It felt sophisticated and private sitting at the booth. I loved the simple touches of the bouquet table setting and subtle candle light. The waiter, Gary, was very charming and helpful.There was not one thing I did not like that I ordered. My cocktail was strong. I had the stuffed salmon special and calamari starter. I have been boasting to everyone this is a spot that everyone who comes to detroit needs to visit!
I would have preferred a booth.
My waiter was fine, but the other waiter my family had made us feel rushed to eat because it was a party of 7. And I never got my garlic bread with my pasta. Me or my other two relatives that ordered pasta. But otherwise everything was alright. I probably will try and go back again but no time soon.
I loved this outing along with our party of 4
The decor was old and dilapidated...the staff was not very accommodating, they seated my party in the back where we couldn’t experience the band... we were presented with food options, but I noticed that the deal presented was more expensive than what was on the menu, so I felt like they gouged me...to top off the evening, my date tripped and fell, as she was clearly hurt, the manager gave her a card and told her to call later with her complaint... the evening went very bad!
Amazing food as usual! Server was a bit stiff and rude but everything else was excellent!
Great Food! Great Service!
The food was delicious and the music was very nice! However, it took 45 minutes to get our drinks and another 15 minutes for our food to arrive! The waiter did not come back to attend to us and offer exemplary service, as you would expect from this type of establishment.
I took my wife here for her birthday and I received a lot of praise from her for making the right choice on a restaurant. The food was great, the wait staff was great, the ambience was great.
This is by far the best restaurant in the downtown area of Detroit. Food was excellent and service was excellent as well.
I highly recommend coming here. Right in eastern market, good parking space. Great place for date night, anniversary or birthday dinner. Food was great. Plenty of seafood options which I loved. Live music performance, & they also have a comedy show o the other side for additional cost. I will be returning for that.
