Found this place by accident looking for a great dinner. All expectations were met and then we realized we were eating in a retired fire station. As a retired firefighters, our appreciation is enhanced even more. We then walked around and saw all the great fire art and artifacts throughout. Staff and wait staff are attentive and helpful. The drinks a creative and tasty. All of our meals were great. The only constructive criticism I can add is the portion on the pork loin meal was a bit small with only about a 1/2” loin cut. The salmon, seafood and salad plate were all sized appropriately. The flavors were excellent and we will definitely return in the future. Thanks again for a great experience. I also must add both the appetizers and desserts were size appropriate, tasty and flavor friendly.
The ambience is old school Detroit with a modern flair. The original fire house tiles and fireman's poles with the glassed in firetruck entryways make this a unique and cool spot. Would love to go back for drinks and sit by the fire. Easter brunch had a good variety and everything I tried was delicious. Service was excellent too.
This place really blew my expectations out of the water. We started with espresso martinis then a sparkling Riesling which was great. The steak was amazing and the gnocco was so good. We got a desert wine which was really sweet but delicious, then ended with the chocolate tart which was so fresh and airy. The staff was so kind and accommodating. Would absolutely come back here again.
