A restaurant embracing the history of Detroit's industrial reach. The cinder block building that housed neighborhood fare for decades has received new life to further the tradition of hand-made, thought-out food and beverage. Expect personal service, handwritten menus, and a fresh, comfortable atmosphere. Food and beverage selections rotate with the seasons and availability of local farm products, with no set menu. Everything is handmade from scratch, with fresh, ethical ingredients from Chef Rigato’s extensive network of farms, butchers and foragers.

    The meal was very well curated. Out of the 8 courses for the tasting menu I enjoyed all of them except for 3. It doesn't seem like a lot of food but by the end of the night you are full. My wife had the drink pairing, and she enjoyed how each drink matched the food course very well. Overall the meal was good, but on the pricey side.

    This is the 3rd time I’ve done the tasting menu and it was excellent as always. The oysters were incredible and I’m pretty sure we’ll be talking about the waygu beef for the rest of our lives.

    We waited a LONG time to get a reservation here. We did not know if it would lice up to the "hype", since we had heard great things. It definitely lived up to the hype. We splurged and did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and we loved everything we tried. It was perfect. Definitely a treat for a special occasion!

    Hands down the best restaurant in metro Detroit! That is saying a lot because there are so many downtown that we love but Mabel Gray is a rare gem! Our server, Max, is outstanding!!!! He always remembers us even if it’s been a while since we’ve eaten there. The service here is outstanding and the food is fresh, seasonal, creative and ridiculously delicious! Their cocktails are exceptional & always on point. Music is always a great mix & the whole place has a very cool vibe!

    This was my 4th experience at Mabel Gray but my daughters first. It never lets me down. The food is delicious, creative and never boring. Mark Anthony and Max explain each dish and generally make dining an enjoyable adventure. Paulina the sommelier was once again helpful in deciding a great bottle of wine. My husband had the steak which was unbelievable!!! The tasting menu was superb. Atmosphere is friendly and fun. I can’t wait for next time!

    The restaurant is small, and when full, customers must talk over the background music and the din of the entire dining room is too much for any sort of conversation unless you want to be heard by the people at neighboring tables.
