Ronin, RO – I ended up at Ronin on a whim and haven't stopped raving about it since. I'd passed it a bunch of times and never really knew what it was, b/c it looks like something that should be in LA (and I mean that in the best way... we need some more of that in these parts). The decor just totally transports you to another place. The music is AWESOME, the open windows in the lounge are AMAZING in the summer, the martinis are some of BEST I've had in life. I'd rave about the food, but I always head to the lounge and skip the food. :-p Awesome, awesome place. I hope the owner opens more restaurants, I bet he could create a killer latin-vibe lounge/restaurant.
AMAZING SERVICE AND AWESOME FOOD – Its like a little hidden GEM! I love the food, it always comes out great! The wasabi potatoes are unique and delicious. There are many choices between hot food and sushi that you never get bored. The service is awesome. The staff has always been on top of what they do and each person is fun in there own way. There are a lot of different Cold saki's to drink as well, I recommend this place to everyone. You can sit in the lounge or in the dinning area depending on what your looking for. plus the windows open in the lounge area and on a summer day thats beautiful!
Best Restaurant in Town!!!! – Ronin is by far the best restaurant in the metro Detroit area. Regardless of what you're looking for you'll find it there. The food is amazing....from the sushi to hot food, the service always comes with a smile, and the atmosphere makes you feel like you are far from Detroit. I go there at least once a week. I definitely suggest checking it out.
Love It! – I love this place. The atmosphere is rustic and charming. The decor is understated and refreshing.
The food is great, my favorite is to go for dinner during the week and get sushi and sake. I love the hot crab cone roll and spicy scallops.
It's one of those places that I will always go back to.
Favorite restaurant in the metro area! – Had a wonderful experience at Ronin! It was our first time--our server was very helpful. She immediately told us about their monthly features--the shrimp app was amazing. We split some rolls for dinner-we loved the pink roll! I can't wait to go again!!
Exceptional! – I know that five stars is a generous accolade, but this place deserves it. I've eaten at some of the best sushi houses in the country, and by far the quality, freshness, and innovation that Ronin provides is unparalleled. It's even better than Koi (i've been to both the LA and Vegas locations). The Kobe beef sliders are melt in your mouth, the cocktails and service are both phenomenal, and the ambience is intimate but still modern. The lounge seating that opens out to the street in the summer time is one of my favorite things about this place.
I keep telling my friends from Chicago about this place, and it's so hard for them to believe that the best sushi is in this suburb of Detroit. Nevertheless, they finally visited, and were thrilled.
Exceptional ambiance, friendly knowledgable service, amazing food and sushi – I visited Ronin in Royal Oak for dinner for the first time and had a great experience. The atmosphere was dimly lit, with comfortable leather seats and otomans. The music selection and quailty was unique and excellent. The drink menu offered several interesting and creative options with a simplistic yet excellent wine selection. The dinner menu offered a wide variety of options with beautiful presentation and thoughtful planning. I highly recommend the Diver Scallops and Kobe Sliders. The sushi menu was original and approachable. The quality was the freshest I have had in the area. Royal Oak desperately needed a qualtiy sushi establishment, and Ronin more than delivers.
Happy hour specials! – I am a big fan of sushi and love going to Ronin. They just added happy hour with a must item, Kobe Sliders. They also added some new cocktails..including their delicious Cucumber saketini. In addition, there are new minature bottles of cold sake including Zipang, a sparkling sake with a hint of citrus. This place has a great atmosphere with friendly service. Sometimes it takes a while for the sushi to come but that's because it is usually busy. Overall I would recommend this place to a sushi lover or an average joe. No reservations tho so make sure you get there early..
They also have a super sweet lounge upstairs called the STUDY with a more exclusive feel but still your neighborhood bar. A MUST VISIT!!!
Great for happy hour, terrible for sushi – I would recommend this restaurant as a good place for drinks, nice atomosphere. However, I would absolutely not recommend this bar as far as sushi; it's terrible.
Ronin has been open for quite a while now, but it still my favorite by far. While I used to stick strictly to ordering sushi, I have recently ventured into exploring the food menu, and have found that I may even like some of those options even better. I dream about the diver scallops. The chef is creative and truly understands the mixing flavors and textures. On top of the amazing food Ronin also offers a great place to hang out. The music great, the service super friendly, and the overall mood is exactly what anyone is looking for.
