We loved it!. I read all the negatives, can't believe it's the same place. Server (Anthony) was 100% the pro, but also very freindly and caring. I got the free birthday dinner, but even so, pricing was not out of line to other fine dining restaurants in the area. Food very interesting, but no "elf-sized" portions. Dessert out of this world, love the Grand Piano, but keep the piano player from taking so many breaks!
What a hipe!! Will never go back!!. What a hipe this restaurant is. We heard that this was such a great place to eat so we took our daughter for her 21st birthday. We were so dissapointed. The service was horrible, the food was below average and not to mentioned it being overpriced. I wonder what kind of food and service the people who have rated it 5 stars are use to.
Wonderful Experience. My husband and I celebrated our birthdays together at Tribute. What a wonderful experience! The food is incredible and the service is fantastic. Isn't it great to dine in a restaurant, take your time eating fantastic food and not once have that feeling that you are being "rushed"? It's all about the complete dining experience. Is it expensive? Tribute is priced higher than other restaurants in the area, but definately worth it. Sitting with a loved one listening to the soft jazz music in the background, dining on delicious food and having time to enjoy each other's company, we highly recommend to others and will dine there again in the future.
Horrible and pompous service, you are better off going somewhere else..
Horrible experience, will never go back again...
For all of the hype and great ratings, I thought my fiance and I would enjoy it for a great top notch dinner.
It was horrible and the snooty service was not willing to do anything extra or at the very least there job!
We didn't receive our bottle of wine until 50 min. into our meal and the servers acting as if we were bothering them when we asked where it was! We filled our own wine glasses because there wasn't anyone around to do it for us and the food wasn't even that gourmet. I have been to many fine ding restaurants in the Detroit area and this was by far the worst I have ever had.
Huge mistake on choosing this place to drop 250 dollars on two meals. I could have received more attentive service at an Applebess, or even a McDonald's!
Will never go back.
Pre-fixed lunch menu with no offerings for a vegetarian. The best they could do is enlarge the side salad, but for the same price as the entrees. Terrible service, arrogant and condescending waiter. Nice atmosphere but a general snootieness from the entire staff.
Food was mediocre at best. Not even as good as Applebees.
Good food. Bad service, atmosphere.
First, the food is very good. Presentation is excellent. I have visited almost all of the expensive restaurants in the Detroit metro area and the food is comparable.
Now that we got that out of the way, service gets an F. Expect to be ignored for considerable periods of time. If you ask for the wine list, you are put in a "queue" for the sommelier (we waited about an hour). And then he has a surly attitude. Ask him to describe certain wines and he will pick one for you - "I really don't recommend the other ones." How about telling the customer about the wine and letting him/her make the decision?
The restaurant will admit anyone - wear your "I'm with Stupid" T-shirt, apparently as long as you can pay you are in. And yes, bring the whole family, including the babies who roam around the restaurant bothering other patrons. Laugh at the top of your lungs, walk around the restaurant drunk. Nobody seems to want to stop you.
When I'm going for an expensive meal, I want top-notch service and a memorable night out as much as good food. This restaurant clearly fails the test.
Way Way Overpriced Has Been. I have been coming here for 4 years. They changed chefs in 2005 and things are clearly not the same. This place was known for its ecclectic asian/french fusion cuisine with nteresting flavor and textural elements. No more. The prices are in the sky (actually in outer space) $150 a head for the 12 course tasting menu. Flavor combinations like peanut butter and celery just don't get it for me. What this is is an imitation of what it used to be, and even the service has sufferered a severe loss. Avoid this overpriced pretentous has been!
If they had as many menu choices as press releases, it would be better!. Too many people buy into the hype that small portions and astronomically high prices make a restaurant chic! The food is creative, tasty and beautiful. The service is also very adept. However, most of the accompaniments are a one or two bite thing. The menu choices were disappointingly limited. As has been stated in other reviews, it is just TOO PRICEY!! Maybe we are spoiled by Roy Yamiguchi's places, but this certainly didn't meet our expectations of the "fusion" restaurant concept.
One of Detroit's finest dining experiences, Tribute serves French cuisine with an Asian accent and Latin flair.
The design, decor and architecture at Tribute are as bold and innovative as the food, offering contemporary charm, classic sophistication and an understated elegance that befits the cuisine of Executive Chef Don Yamauchi. A French fusion that marries Asian style and Latin zest, the menu includes an array of beef and seafood creations, and offerings such as foie gras for the more distinguished tastes.
Wow is an under statement. We have been here several times and it is 100% consistant. A seasonal menu which changes constantly guarantees that you will always be eating something different every time. Go for the price fixed menu, either meat or vegetarian is sure to please. Do the wine pairings, they will pour a multitude or interesting options. What can I say, ultra-chic, amazing service, amazing asian inspired fusion cuisine, it is hard to find a better option in Detroit, or anywhere for that matter!
