The Rattlesnake is our "go-to" spot for special occasions, has been for years. It never disappoints. New options are offered as well as the traditional. This time we tried the Mexican Mussels, which were outstanding! Scallops excellent as expected, and gumbo fit the bill for one of us. For dessert, WAM knocks it out of the park!

Although our group did not sit outside, I immediately noticed how beautiful the patio would be a nice night in the city, the river just a short distance away, in a semi secluded spot; it has to have the best views and ambiance of any place on the river in Detroit unless you belong to a private club or are...

I love the Rattlesnake. Great staff, friendly, relaxed slightly slow service, nice location, creative dishes, great wine list. That being said, it is slightly overpriced and many of the menu items are slightly too conservative -- the spicy sauces not quite spicy enough, the grilled fish/steaks a bit too bland, the cheese plate had no stinky cheese. But get the... More

Stopped here for lunch after a visit to nearby Pewabic Pottery. Had great weather which allowed us to eat outside. With a view of the Detroit River and excellent service--attentive, knowledgable, helpful--a fine day indeed. Wine options outstanding, Bloody Mary's made with heat to order and a nice beer selection. Cheese and Fruit starter was a surprise--A generous segment of... More

Every now and then, maybe not very often, you should go to a very upscale restaurant, pay an obscene amount of money for your dinner, and see how the swells are living. The Rattlesnake Club is a good place for that. We celebrated a friend's birthday, one of those major, round ones, so we came here. It was a good... More

First off, we thought the service was exceptional, attentive, helpful and friendly. The choice of the fresh backed breads was very good and our choice of wine that was recommended was excellent. However, two of us had the baked halibut and found it very mushy and the side was very strange. On person had the lamb chops and would not... More
