Review №1

This restaurant is definitely one of the most pleasant place in the neighborhood. Every time I visit this place I am deeply happy. They manage their high standard service and the highest level of dishes they offer. You are always happy with this place. Warmly recommended.

Review №2

Stopped by here for happy hour drinks and appetizers. They have a nice selection of craft beer on tap. The food was good, but I probably wouldn't get the Falafel again as it didn't taste like I expected. Everything else was tasty. The place was not crowded at all, which is understandable due to it being a week night. Service was great.

Review №3

Chef driven, unique food. Loved the street corn for happy hour and blackened salmon. Cool decor and great service!

Review №4

Delicious dinner at this jewel of a restaurant. Excellent service from the staff too. The meatloaf was great, as well as the Risotto w/shrimp - spicy. The head of the kitchen crew came out to greet us after the meal. We'll go back again. New things are happening at Nomad.

Review №5

Very quaint, green-natural, atmosphere with a hint of Feng shui. Waitress friendly, & pleasant. Music selection comfortably pleasing. The food, delicious. Definitely try the Blackened Salmon; the chef knows what they're doing.

Review №6

Please, do yourself a favor and stay away from this place. I walked in and the place was empty and now I see that it's also understaffed. I will admit that we had a company meeting with 13 people but we were also the only table here. I didn't ask if they provide food for the hotel guests which may be a contributing factor. It actually took 30 minutes after I arrived for me to get my first glass of water. Others who put in drink orders waited up to 45 minutes. Our food took even longer to arrive. The worst part is that it wasn't even worth the wait. I got a burger, medium, and it was dry and over cooked. We honestly would have gotten better food and service at a Wendy's.

First time for The Nomad Grill. Parking was adequate, shared with the hotel and close to the Enterprise rental place. Atmosphere is good. I was at a group meeting and even this room is good, especially for meetings. Service was excellent, some of the top I've experienced. For the meeting we had a choice of three main entries. I chose the salmon and so glad I did. You are asked how you want it cooked, as in rare, medium rare, etc. It was prepared perfectly, on a bed of Ramin noodles and topped with a poached egg. I haven't seen this before and I am so impressed, a difficult accomplishment. The salad was better than expected for many places, dessert was impressive. You are not rushed while dining. I imagine if you are pressed for time you can let them know and you will be processed accordingly. I looked at a regular menu, noting prices are a little higher than for everyday dining but the quantity and especially quality make it worth it. For a good meal or to impress someone, worth it. In case you can't tell, recommended. I'll be back.

Really good looking venue, serves small plates; prices just right and food is pretty good. Attentive and upbeat staff. We were given a tour of the ballrooms available for rental - so nice. We especially love the upper level ballroom - it has so much to offer and very elegant.

Review №9

Wonderful service and exceptional food. Food served quickly. Nice music. Only improvement I see is a bit faster table service.

Review №10

Great environment. Great personnel. Great food. Highly recommend.

Review №11

They offer a vast range of fresh food. I enjoyed eating here. Employees are always very welcoming, pricing is convenient and the spot is always clean.

Review №12

A bit hard to find from the road. Our server was very friendly but the service was very slow. Some of our groups food was great, some was just ok. Probably would not recommend.

Review №13

Fantastic food, very friendly staff members, constantly excellent ambience. They charge fair prices and the food quality is awesome. Keep it up.

Review №14

Good food, wait staff still learning but understandable.

Review №15

I am not sure what was the issue but it took too much time for us to get food. The place was not busy also but still even simple things like glass of water took 15 minutes. After telling them the service is very slow, there was little improvememt. They need to improve on service level. Food was OK.

Review №16

From the food to the service. The overall experience was amazing! The lobster corn dogs were out of this world.

Review №17

This place is wonderful. Fine dining in a desolate location.

Review №18

My cousin and I were visiting Michigan. We stayed at the Premier Best Western in Southfield. We dined at Nomads Grill. The food was outstanding and it was only exceeded by the service rendered by our great server, Joe.

Review №19

EXCELLENT service the staff are AMAZING rm perfect

Review №20

Great food , friendly staff and good atmosphere ...

Review №21

Food was very good. Portions were on the small side. Decor was welcoming. The guy that was our waiter(can't remember his name) was top notch!! I will definitely recommend and return.

Review №22

Thanks for making our get together run smoothly

Review №23

From the service to the food, it was stellar all around. Our waitress Keira was amazing and took good care of us! Not to mention how clean and comfortable it was.

Review №24

Definitely a Hidden Gem in the Southfield area. Since the Best Western Premier opened the shaft there has been developing their menu. Have eaten there four or five times food is always high quality service is great in the atmosphere is nice. Very cool and eclectic Decor. I have also hosted several events in their banquet facilities they have a ballroom that is very well designed.Liz is there catering manager there and she doesn't awesome job. Would recommend this location to anyone... hotel rooms at the location are newly renovated and gorgeous!

Review №25

Great for a quick catchup over a drink or an evening out watching the game. Food is great too. Can't wait to be back in summer. Thanks.

Review №26

This restaurant turned me into an atheist. I once thought there was more to this world, but after waiting 2 hours for a rib sandwich, I knew that by the 4th offering of a tomato bisque I did not order, I had completely lost my faith in god. The empty dining area during 1PM on a Friday gave a restaurant with a modern, yet posh, decor the energy of a morgue. The server smelled like a grow op.

Review №27

I had the salmon and the asparagus risotto perfect!! Didn't care for the drinks, the bar tender was very pleasant!! I will return.

Review №28

Such a low key spot it's easy to miss. The food is amazing! The corn on the cob with a hint of lime blew my mind! Really calm vibe as well.

Review №29

I just noticed everyone's food and they're happy smiles as I passed through the food looked and smelled delicious I did not taste it but I could imagine

Review №30

Good quality food and drinks. You'll pay a premium for them, but the experience is bordering on fine dining. The staff is excellent. They're responsive, suggestive and reasonable with your requests; always ready to slightly modify a dish to your tastes.

Review №31

Sad, disappointed and over priced are just the first words that come to mind for this review. We had a 15 person party and one server, who for the oddest reason left with our orders and returned with one item at a time and in my case did not even take my food order until my friends had already started eating. I remained patient and took the small apologizes in hopes of a good meal. Once the meal came (after my friends were finished eating) I was again terribly disappointed. I have had better ribs at McDonald's and didnt pay 18 dollars for them. They did not have any meat on them and completely over cooked. The waitress did not even have the courage to ask how the meal was because she clearly knew the failure that she had served. Nothing was apologized for or adjustment made to my bill. The waitress could not even keep straight who ordered what. Needless to say I will not be returning. Nomad with have to remain a lone traveler for I won't be making any hike their way.

Review №32

Great atmosphere, great staff AMAZING FOOD! I mean, you've got to try the Blackened Salmon with the heavenly crafted vegetable risotto!

Review №33

The bar is quite bad. Been here twice and the service is always so slow. Poor selection. This last time they didn't have miller lite and everything on tap was out because they ran out of CO2.Who the hell is running this place?

Review №34

Celebrated my birthday with about 20 family members. Awesome staff, great food, wonderful speciality drinks. Can't say enough great things about Nomads. Highly recommend for any occasion. My new favorite place.

Review №35

Nice people and good atmosphere drinks are ok but food is not that good to us will return for a drink but no food!!!

Review №36

Very friendly atmosphere, great service, love they're happy hour, very tasty Lobster corn dogs, Great Hot soup.

Review №37

Great place. Sad to hear about the unsettling issues. I hope they work it out and keep the great food and vibe of the place. We miss Erik D.

Review №38

4.5 Stars. Surprisingly good place. Excellent service and the food is spot on. I'm here for business a couple times per month and actually look forward to going. Love their salads.

Review №39

Cool atmosphere, although lunch menu is somewhat limited. Place was empty but I was told happy hour is where it's at.

Review №40

Fish taco, salmon sliders were delicious

Review №41

Overpriced and disappointing. I wish we read the reviews prior and avoided this restaurant. The jambalaya was the suggested choice. The menu states prawns, definitely not. There were 4 slivers of sausage and 3 shrimp, no bread or crackers and had to be returned for saltiness...this was 24 dollars. Do not waste your time, there are alot of good restaurants in Southfield.

Review №42

I had the pleasure of being served by Nick. Customer service absolutely amazing. The food is priced reasonable for happy hour and the drinks made by Nick were just incredible. If you have not gone to Nomad Grille yet, put this one on your next happy hour stop!

Review №43

Service was great food was even better. I had the Root Beer braised short rib with grits awesome.

Review №44

Great food, great service, great atmosphere!

Review №45

Love the food and the service is fabulous

Review №46

Little D was helpful giving recommendation about places to hung out. Nice talk to person, excellent service and good food as well.

Review №47

Metro Detroit's BEST KEPT SECRET!!

Review №48

The food is okay but not worth the price. The staff is friendly.

Review №49

Went here for dinner with some girlfriends on a Saturday night at 6 pm and there was no one in the restaurant. That should have been the first revelation. The whole night was awful. The server was new and that was not an issue but within our 3 hour time at the Nomad there were only 5 other tables the whole time. Our food was only half put in, drinks only came out when you reminded the server or asked about it. The manager tried to intervene however she could not get our orders right either and that was just in regards for two desserts. Over priced, awful customer service and the food was okay. I would not recommend again.

Review №50

Way...way overpriced. A teeny appetizer...8 bucks. Cheapest dinner, high 20's. This is a hotel bar, nothing more. A house Cab was $17. You can do better.....

Review №51

The place is good and the food is decent. But the service was lacking severely

Review №52

Kevin is the best! A fantastic restaurant with delicious food. Great service, ask for the before mentioned Kevin. You will not be sorry.

Review №53

Business meeting great place.

Review №54

Food and service was very good and the atmosphere and decor pleasant for a nice meal. For lunch it wasn't at all crowded and made for a nice opportunity to meet with my party of eight people; to talk, hear one another, and enjoy a good meal. Nice place.

Review №55

Applebee's is a michelin star restaurant compare to this place.I was at a going away party with about 14 other people. I asked the waitress to start at the other side and come back to me for my order. Well she took everyone's order and forgot about me and the individual I came with. When she finally came back (30 minutes later) we were able to place a order. We did not get our food until the table was done eating. On top of this the $22.00 ribs were so burnt there was no meat on them. I paid for bones with no meat. I wish I would have taken a photo.I honestly hate leaving bad reviews. I usually do not say anything but this was one of the worst dinning our experiences I have had.

Review №56

F ood was alright not fulling i had the salmon and rice if u like to eat u will not get full

Review №57

I have been here several times and so far, everything has been good. Salads are huge and easily enough for two. Non beef entrees have all been good but certainly not outstanding. If you are staying at the adjacent Best Western, then it's definitely worth a visit.

Review №58

Food is really good

Review №59

Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere! Hubby and I dined for our anniversary and the food was delicious. Our food was about 15 minutes later then normal but when the chief came out to apologize due to her wanting my lamb to be perfect, and perfect it was, I didn't notice the time. Friendly waiters, clean restaurant, nice bar, and great lobster corn dogs!! I was satisfied.

Review №60

Best ever!! I'm from Cleveland and ill recommend anyone here!! Keep up the great Kevin your Awesome!!

Review №61

I had great service and the food is amazing.

Review №62

Set up for a good time, meetings, small group gathering, can handle special parties. Helpful and pleasant staff. Nick was a great help to us to arrange a last minute gathering and food.

Review №63

Food was ok no salt, pepper or anything on the tables. Nothing to write home about. Service was fair at best. Waitress kept disappearing.

Review №64

There was no one in the restaurant but my 5 friends and I ( two other couples came later) we had to beg the waitress and management to get wings to eat at the dinning table. Happy hour you can only have wings at the bar ( about 2 feet away!!! We thought how ridiculous. We were for 3 hours and no one else came in. Won't be coming here again!!!

Review №65

Great food, was packed that night.

Review №66

The food was tasty, nice bar and ambiance.

Review №67

Nice restaurant. I think it caters the morning breakfast to Hotel Best Western Premier. Though very less variety of options available for breakfast, taste is good for whatever they offer.

Review №68

Service was awesome and the food was outstanding wow !

Review №69

The food is good but they need to expand the size of the menu. Not a lot to choose from.

Review №70

We came in at 4:00 pm and we were told that we couldn't eat unless we ate at the bar. When we went to the bar we asked for dinner menus they then told us we couldn't eat from the dinner menu until 5.... we did not get the food we wanted and on top on that the bar tender was rude and obnoxious....very poor customer service I'll never come to this establishment again.

Review №71

Unimpressive food and drinks. The food was under seasoned and the drinks weren't well-crafted.The atmosphere is quite lovely but that's it. It was missing and lacked energy and liveliness. A bit disappointed seeing that the owners where from Coach Insignia. I was was hoping for better.

Review №72

Awesome food and awesome service!

Review №73

Attended a dance event there. Beautiful.

Review №74

Very good food and atmosphere! Will, the manager, is very nice. Most of the time I have come here, it has been slow and quiet, but that makes it good when you actually want to hear the person you are with.

Review №75

It was a breakfast event and the food was delicious. For the Breast cancer society.

Review №76

Food is good. Service can be hit or miss. Seems to be an issue with scheduling. Appear to be under staffed. That's on Mgt.

Review №77

Haven't been yet but the hotel is nice

Review №78

Sunday dinner with the family. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. First time in my wife's life she could have French Onion Soup as this is the only place we've encountered that does it gluten free. Jambalaya was spot on. Burger was rich and flavorful due to dry aging. Even the chicken, which is not something I get excited about, was very tasty with just the right amount of tumeric. One of the best wine lists I've discovered in the metro Detroit area.

Review №79

Great atmosphere, Food was great. Service is slow but the Waiter made up for it with his Charm.

Hidden hot spot. Top servers. Great food and happy hour 7 days a week. The best wine menu in Detroit

Review №87

Great food and service. The seating was very cozy and comfortable and the book. I had a hamburger well done and it was still juicy.

Review №88

Gluten free options were contaminated

Review №89

Loved the decor. Great service, food was good. First time ever having Pho. Nomad martini was impressive. Rained hard when we were there and the ceiling sprung a leak but it didn't dampen our spirits.

Review №90

Outstanding! The staff (Kevin & Nick) were great, very friendly with excellent recommendations. Kudos to the chef as well! One of the best dinners I've had in the Detroit area. I will return for sure o. My next trip. Highly recommended! Get the Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler for desert!!
