"This restaurant was a great place for a light dinner before attending an event at the Detroit Opera House. We had soup and a sandwich and the soup was excellent. The panini was quite good but could have been a little warmer when served. Would still have it again. Our waitress was flat outstanding. Brought me an extra coffee to take to the show and made us feel very special. Very glad we dined there."

"Food ran late this time. We had a 12:00 pm reservation, but didn't get lunch until 12:40 so it was hard to eat and get to our seats for the show on time. But, this was the first time it ever happened, so I figure they were short handed. Overall, I love Cadillac Cafe! I wouldn't see a show without first having lunch with you! It's part of the Opera House experience. Thanks for being there."

"The overall service was fine although make sure the waiters are not high on marijuana...very distinctive smell/slow service. The "hostess" was very unprofessional. iPod in yoga pants and earbuds out. Did not take direction from other staff. The low point of the entire experience."

"Most of the food was good but service was "odd". Very confused server, although pleasant; perhaps she was new or things were going on in the kitchen that we weren't aware of. One of our group of four didn't get served his meal until we were leaving, but he was served something before that he didn't order. We aren't sure what we paid for and other customers seemed to be having troubles as well. I'd like to think it was an off night and not a typical evening. The venue has great potential and I wish them success but it needs some work. I would try it again but the men in our group would not."

"The food selection was short and not sweet because the selection was way to narrow. Food was good but mundane. You would not go to the Cadillac Cafe for dinner or recommend it to a friend for dinner but convenient to the Theater YES. Ambiance - very good as was the service."

"The hostess/bartender and server were wonderful...warm and friendly and personable. The food was not of the highest of quality. Have eaten at the fisher theater dining nook and it was excellent food. The portions are small and too expensive and the quality sub par... This place could be a gem with a little tweeking of the menu..."

"We got there early to be able to take our time and enjoy the experience. It is a nice looking space but the tables are a bit small for full dinner service. Dinner before the show started well with a generous serving of bruschetta and asian chicken lettuce wraps that were delicious. I received the wrong wine initially (red instead of the white I ordered) but that was corrected promptly. As the place started filling up though everything went downhill. Service slowed to a crawl and the noise level racheted up. It took far too long for the entrees to be served and the food was barely warm when it arrived. The tomato basil bisque was hot and quite good but the lobster in the mac & cheese was tough and chewy. It took three times longer to get my second glass of wine than the first and it was just as wrong and from the same server. Also, at $10 a glass for a $5 wine it should be a bit more than a 4 oz. pour. We wanted to enjoy the elegent looking dessert assortment but the slow service used up all of our spare time. The rather high cost would have been fine if the experience has lived up to its promising start. It seems like they have a good start here but they will need to get better quickly to get ahead. Because this location is so convenient I would be willing to try again but only if I hear of major improvements."

"We eat at Cadillac Cafe before every show we see at The Detroit Opera House. We like the "small plates" approach. And more important, the food quality. Try the lobster Mac and Cheese. Outstanding. The place is small and chairs are a bit uncomfortable. But location and food quality trumps."

"This was a surprising experience! I really didn't expect too much being that it was alongside the Detroit Opera House. What a fine! Delicious food, wonderful wait staff and lovely greeter at the door! We will definitely return when we attend our next event at the Opera House. The Cadillac Cafe is definitely worth trying out!"

"The Cadillac cafe provides a convenient location for those attending an opera. The opening time and location is a great help for the elderly and handicapped such as I."

"This cafe is ideal for lunch before matinee or evening performance. Simple menu but excellent food. Altogether quite an achievement for a venue which must be open irregularly."

"I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions before attending operas. This was the first time service and food were less than acceptable. Usually the service is excellence and the food is good. Not so with the most recent visit. Hopefully the staff and management there will get things sorted in order to return to the formerly great service and wonderful food I have previously enjoyed."

"The cafe is only open for two hours and only when there is a corresponding event at the Opera House. It is ideal for having some uncomplicated good food/drink before a performance inside the lobby of the Opera House."

"While the atmosphere was pleasant and the staff cordial, the service was dreadfully slow. It took 15 minutes just to get a hot tea--after I asked a second waitress. The food was good, but nothing great, and it took 25 minutes for half a sandwich and a bowl of soup to arrive. I noticed another couple getting frustrated by their waiting time as well. This was not due to a lack of staff. Not sure I will return. The best thing: the cafe was part of the Opera House, making it extremely convenient."

"It is very convenient to park your car nearby and to eat in the same building as the Opera performance. However, the Cadillac Cafe needs a lot of work. It must be very difficult to organize and staff a venue with very compressed hours, where nearly everyone's meal must "peak" at the same time. Many patrons were stressed out about getting their food in time for the show. The table next to us finally walked out. Service timing was erratic. We waited to place our order, then received our entrees (which weren't very good) immediately after being served our salads. Food quality was mixed. Dry and luke warm best describes it. This organization should sit down and brainstorm how they can reengineer their service and system to better accommodate their unique situation. The restaurant at the DSO does a much smoother job by sharply limiting their menu, enabling them to productionize the whole process. Right now the Cadillac Cafe can take no pride in their severely compromised system. It's a shame because it is so convenient."

"As always (we are regulars), the staff is very friendly and considerate. The kitchen simply can't keep up during busy hours, and food temperature is a problem. Anything served on bread is likely to be icy cold. This week, we waited an hour and a half for a simple snack before the opera. The waitstaff was frantic - but why?"

"I use Cadillac Cafe only on nights when an opera is performed. The food is good, the prices are reasonable The waitresses try to do a good job -- they are very pleasant but it appears that the restaurant is a bit understaffed. Nonetheless, the Cadillac Cafe does complement the Michigan Opera Theater experience and does make it convenient for an enjoyable evening."

"We were seated promptly and the staff was very friendly. However, our food arrived cold. The menu is fairly limited. We needed to be out of the restaurant by 6:30, but it took so long to get the check, we were late for our next engagement. The staff seems overwhelmed when all tables are full."

"We took our Great Niece to see Wicked and had supper here before!! What a treat! When supper was over we simply walked into the theater without having to go back outside!! Would definitely eat at Cadillac Cafe again when attending a performance! My 11 yr old niece felt so grown up:)))"
