This is a neat little place. The food is excellent and consistent and the wait staff never disappoints. Many great things to choose from menu. The lobster salad is one of my favorites. There is always a daily special which is good and fairly priced. In the summer I love the Gasparo, but all their soups are good. If you... More

We ate at Diamond Jim Brady's last Saturday night and had a wonderful meal. We all had hamburgers and they all came as we ordered. Also we ate in the outside eating space they have created. It was intimate and less noisy than the main restaurant so we could have a good discussion. I would recommend that you request the... More

Great meal, nice atmosphere, very knowledgeable and accommodating waiter who was willing to do everything to make sure our meal was exactly as we wanted it. Highly recommend this place. Oh yes, don't forget the very reasonably priced wine selection. Top rate in every way!

My boyfriend and I used Trip Advisor to find us a good place to eat in the Novi area. I saw the cool looking circle room...I was hooked. The food and the service was excellent. We got the goat cheese flat bread, an absolute must! Great experience and be sure to sit in the circle room!

This restaurant is smaller than I thought it would be. At least 1/2 of the dining appears to be outdoors, which is great on a beautiful night, but on winter nights seating in the restaurant is a premium. I would strongly recommend reservations. We sat at a table within the bar area and our server was also the bar tender.... More

Glad you had a wonderful time and we LOVE that you said the bartender was funny and sarcastic. All the girls are pretty hilarious behind the bar and they work really hard to keep everyone happy so we love to see them appreciated. You rock! More

One of the few original restaurants in Michigan where you don't find the typical dishes of the 99% of US restaurants. Recommended for lunch. Not cheap but it's worth it.
