Meh really sums up my restaurant week experience at 24grille. Sadly, even from making the reservation (which was insanely difficult for 2 people a week in advance) to the actual food 24grille was mediocre at best. The negative experience began when somehow said reservation was lost and the hostesses seemed to be put out to seat us (again the reservation was made a week in advance for 2 people at 5pm in an EMPTY restaurant!).
The food - I was expecting wow and again I got meh. Quite frankly I can prepare food that is better than what we ordered. I ordered the Shepperd's Pie made with short ribs.... what I received tasted like a rubbery pot roast (and was presented as such since it was actually a deconstructed Shepperd's Pie which was mentioned nowhere on the menu!). The other person in my party ordered the Hanger Steak which was alright and was served with cold sweet potato puree. For dessert we ordered the Panacotta and Blueberry Cheesecake.... both were bland! How can you screw up dessert? The Panacotta was a drippy flavorless mess... it was supposed to be served with a bacon cherry compote (all I tasted was rhubarb with no bacon to be had!). The Blueberry cheesecake is anything but a cheesecake again it was bland and not sweet in any way. The blueberries were frozen and the whole thing just tasted like nothing. We literally left half of each dessert at the table and that was after we both had shared the other portion.
I will never be returning to 24grille. I was extremely disappointed. It also didn't help that parking was an additional $7.00 and it took over 20 minutes to get my car. I have visited Wolfgang Puck previously for Restaurant Week and while I hate having to go to the casino that was an excellent meal and experience. Quite frankly I would have much rather gone to The Hill in Grosse Pointe, paid full price and had a phenomenal meal instead of mediocre meal that we were served.
