Just curious as to everyone's opinion on how this restaurant is doing. It's nicely designed yet not quite upscale enough for a classy night out. It's also not casual enough to have any energy. It has one flat screen in the corner which kind of sums up the whole place. It doesn't have a niche. With little activity on Woodward above CMart is it attracting a dinner crowd or surviving on business lunches? Should they try to market it differently?

Ive been there and it is pretty classy. Food is good as well. Last time I was there which was on a Wednesday night it had a nice crowd especially since it is also a nightclub after midnight. I actually have to check it out again.

I have had a drink at over 95 places in Detroit (yes, I am keeping a list) and live three blocks from this place, yet I've never walked in. I tried to one Saturday afternoon but it wasn't open and all the other times I've walked by it looks boring as all hell. Stuffy, I guess you could say. Regardless, I hope they do well!

I have had dinner there a few times, it actually isn't too bad. The food and service was great, just a little bit pricey.

I went there once per a recommendation. The food was ok art on a plate and way too expensive for what you get. There are too many other places downtown that provide better value for the money IMHO.

Went there for a party. I think my "bar" at home had more drink selections. Pretty disappointing.

Went there a couple of years ago. The layout is very classy and upscale, although the bar could be a bit bigger. Service has, and from what I've read in reviews, is still very slow.

Very expensive for what you get but a decent looking restaurant. Service was nothing special, in fact I had to ask like 3 people in order to get our bill since our waitress dissappeared. Also, not a varied selection really.

I like it. It is expensive, but for, say, meeting someone for drinks and appetizers after work on my birthday it fills the bill. The menu has a bit of local flavor. I also like looking at other people across the bar rather than a mirror--as the old country song says, I never go around mirrors.

I like the restaurant but I have to admit there are many others downtown I prefer. Still I hope it does well. The food was pretty good, nice atmosphere, service was so-so...

An excellent choice for downtown dining that is casual but a little more upscale than places like DBC, Slows or Hard Rock. A very attractive room too.

Looks like Woodward and Gratiot inside Compuware.

Looks like most folks opinion is the same as mine. It's okay, but not on your favorites list. It's going to need a reincarnation in the long run unless a lot of Compuware workers are scooping up those $11 corn beef sandwiches.

Looking at the menu, I just did the math. The average dinner entree is $16. I guess I am confused. Why is this considered overpriced?

Answer: Because these guys know how to drink.

I was in there for drinks yesterday evening and was not impressed. Upon ordering a Manhattan, I was served what amounted to an affront to that venerable cocktail--a Southern Comfort Manhattan. It was vile. And on top of that, she didn't use bitters.
