Had dinner before heading down to a play in Detroit. The food was really good. I had the flank steak - really outstanding. Wait staff was attentive and warmed up to us after a little bit. We had a table by the street. It was a nice night and the open air was pretty cool. Nice atmosphere. The wine list... More

This is an interesting hipster spot. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful. If you like small plate entrees of average food you will like it. For me it was too expensive, the Ferndale parking is a nightmare, and I like more hearty portions.

We had a party of 8 with reservatons. When we arrived to other friends that we did not think were going to show up were at our table. I asked the hostess for a couple more chairs to be added. You would of thought I had asked her to pay our bill or something. She was very rude and talked... More

This is a fun noisy energetic atmosphere. Most of the food was good but not really on par for a true "foodie". The best part of the night was having drinks at the bar and interacting with the other guests before dinner. The special fish dish of the night and the ceaser were average but acceptable. The lamb chops and... More

I wasnt' blown away by their food, but it's a cool spot. Really fun when it's nicer out and the windows are open. Come for the ambiance more than the food.

Best turkey burger around! Fun and intimate atmosphere. Definitely more a summer spot but curious to check it out in winter months. Great happy hour too.

John D is a gem. The food is first rate and the service is consistently great. One of the things I like most about John D is the eclectic music; seemingly changing with the crowd. Try the mac and cheese, kentucky mule, and my absolute favorite, the wrapped asparagas. Top it off with an ice cream slider. So happy John... More
