I don't get the hype???? – I don't get the hype I thought the food was good, don't get me wrong, but $450 for two and you leave and you feel like you need to pick up a pizza to get fille, I don't think so. And I was pregnant and my husband had two drinks. It is not like the bill was stacked with a couple bottles of wine. And maybe that is why we were treated so poorly because we were not drinking a lot???
The place was beautiful, but not worth the price at all.
Not up to it's past – Ever since Takashi left things have seemed to be going downhill. The prices have increased, but yet the portions have seemed to become smaller. It used to be one of the only fine dining restaurants that I would leave full from, but the two times I have gone this year I still feel a little empty when I left. The menu doesn't seem as imaginative and not all the combinations seem to work. I never thought I would say this, but I feel there are now better places to eat around Detroit then Tribute.
Still superb – I was a little nervous trying Tribute under the new chef since we had loved it so much before. Thankfully nothing has changed. The service was still the best I have ever had in a restaurant and the food may be even better, if possible. This will hopefully always be our favorite restaurant.
User review by missjuly77 – The new pastry chef is excellent! His creations are creative and delicous. The Egg, as always, is to die for!
AVOID FOR BUSINESS DINING – If you want to spend 3 and a half hour for a dinner, $185 for two, 40 minutes for a cheese plate, eat tainted crab cakes, and have to ask twice for a soufle then you should go. However if you invite a business partner avoid this restaurant and pass the word. The place is overrated. Food mediocre along with the attitude of servers. Of course we tipped accordingly.
User review by jkelsey – First time back to Tribute with new Chef on Friday Feb 12. 2005. We were very impressed. The whole experience was wonderful. We tried the Degustation menu with the wine pairings.
The food was incredible, interesting and well presented; the wine was likewise; well-paired with the food and presented by the wine staff in a fun, informative and unpretentious way. The service was attentive but not smothering. As it should be, the staff anticipated well and was there when you wanted them there and not there when you didn't. We highly recommend Tribute.
State of Mind – Photograph worthy dishes. A different taste sensation with every bite. A wine list that is the best in the state and one of in the country. This is definitely not for everyone. You must have an open mind and let the chef do his majic. I will say that if I could, I would dine there the 5 nights a week that they are open. My advice: do the degustation with the wine pairing!! WOW. Thanks again Tribute....
Best in Detroit – Japanese touches to the French cuisine really pleased our palates. Everything we had was superb -- seafood appetizer consisting of 5 different sushi-size concoctions. Mixed green salad. A white bean soup (served over tender veal). Entrees of steak (almost melts in the mouth) w/ subtle wasabi flavoring and sea bass w/ matsutake sauce. Plus desserts of Yuzu Tart and Mille Feulle. The experience was superb albeit more pricey than the kinds of places we normally frequent. Expect to spend $15 for an appetizer and $30-$40 for entrees. $10 or more for a glass of wine. The wife says we should go back monthly (yeah, right).
It was the perfect place to spend our anniversary. The only problem is that I won't be able to top it next year!
According to their website reservations are required every day so give them a call in advance.
Tribute--an excellant choice – Tribute is by far the best dining experience in the metro Detroit area, and likely one of the best in the nation.
I have been to Tribute on 5 occasions, and each one has been exemplary in terms of service, food and wine. Every single member of the staff goes out of their way to provide excellent service.
I especially recommend the degustation (many course sampler menu). Although it is pricey at $75-$85 per person, you will receive a full explanation of each course, how it is prepared by the chef, etc. I have tried several dishes that I would not otherwise order a la carte, and each one has been excellent. The wine tasting ($50 per person, or a couple can share 1 wine tasting order) is also superb, and the staff go out of their way to accomodate special requests and to custom tailor each selection.
AMAZING – Nothing compares to the experience at Tribute. The food is truly memorable, every bites sticks in your memory. The service is outstanding and the decor is truly stunning. I've eaten all around the nation, and this truly stands out. PLus I heard the Chef just won the cooking world's version of the Oscar for Best Chef!
