The only issue I had with each time I ate there was with the time it took. It ended up taking approximately three hours from start to finish. There are large amounts of time spent waiting for the next course or the bill. If you are not in a hurry or want to sit for a long relaxing dinner then I would highly recommend it.

I was quite upset that my reservation was not in the book on Sunday. I had sent an e-mail Saturday (did not get reply) and also called; girl with whom I spoke said she had e-mail on screen in front of her (they were just opening for Saturday evening) and would enter reservation in system right then. Our companions arrived Sunday only to find that there was no record of my reservation. Not impressed. We still got the table we had requested and had a lovely meal, but I am annoyed that, essentially, I was lied to regarding my reservation.

Our service was slow.....our waitress took 15 minutes to take our initial/drink order, did not return to check quality of our food, and we had to send for her to get our bill. Burger with pulled pork on top of beef pattie was chewy, and too large to fit in one's mouth. Ravioli portion was small...my girlfriend left hungry despite consuming all the ravioli and a bit of my burger. Without the Groupon, we would have found it extremely over-priced for the food quality, however the service "convinced" us to not return despite the unique decor.

Although it was a nice place I would not go back Steak was overcooked. Asked for med rare. No pink at all in steak The steak had no seasoning at all and if not for the gravy there would have been nothing to give it any kind of flavor This was a $40 dish. And not worth the money at all overall I was disappointed

We're from the Detroit area and really enjoyed coming over for dinner at your restaurant. Stephanie, our waitress, was top-notch. Food, service, and atmosphere were all incredible. We will be back!!!

From Our Editors

In a 1930s-era walk-in vault that once guarded diamonds, The City Grill now stores ruby-hued merlots and cabernet sauvignons. The vault is a relic of McCreery’s Diamond Store, whose art-deco aesthetic has been revived by The City Grill, setting the perfect backdrop for feasts of upscale culinary creations.

The restaurant’s carefully designed atmosphere relies on illuminated globes, exposed brick, and black-and-white photomurals depicting the days in Windsor’s past when even robots had to get around by horse-drawn carriages. A spacious patio invites guests to soak in the fresh air and sip libations that range from Chilean syrahs to signature dessert drinks such as an espresso martini.

The drinks pair with globally inspired food dreamt up by Executive Chef Shawn McKerness, who previously captained the seafaring kitchens of the luxurious Holland America Line cruises. McKerness combines fresh ingredients from local sources for a menu of contemporary food that, like the moon’s wardrobe, changes seasonally. Diners might slice into a horseradish-encrusted tenderloin, Maui-style ahi tuna, or red snapper lounging under exotic fruit salsa.
