Dinner at Wolfgang Puck Grille

Wolfgang Puck Grille

America’s culinary legend brings his innovative cuisine to Detroit at this signature, namesake restaurant.

This contemporary version of the classic “bar & grill” features modern American cuisine accentuating Puck’s trademark standards for creating incomparable tastes using fresh, seasonal, all-natural and organic ingredients. The restaurant features casual as well as sophisticated fine dining in a spectacular setting.

WOLFGANG PUCK GRILLE offers the first full breakfast menu from the renowned chef. The lunch and dinner menus feature creative salads, sandwiches and paninis, steaks, seafood, pastas and Puck’s signature wood-oven baked pizzas.

WOLFGANG PUCK GRILLE also offers guests 24-hour, in-room dining.

Styln Sez:  We were finally able to get a reservation at Wolfgang Puck Grille at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino (Friday before last). We met two other couples there for drinks and dinner. The service wasn’t the best, but the food was wonderful! We tasted several appetizers and an entree (we really pigged out) including:

  • Sauteed Crab Cakes
    with Marinated Tomatoes and Basil Pesto Aioli 
  • Fresh Angel Hair Pasta
    with Wild Field Mushrooms and Italian Parsley
  • Prime Beef Tartare
    with Dijon Mustard, Quail Egg and Sourdough Crostini
  • Braised Beef Short Ribs
    with Parsnip Puree, Gremolata and Roasted Root Vegetables

I decided to have this lobster and crab salad as my entree since we didn’t eat our actual dinner until about 10pm. After dinner we walked around the casino and visited two of the night clubs Ignite and V.  Both clubs had an upscale ambiance, bumpin’ sounds and were packed to the brim.  We had a great time with friends, food and fun!

    That sounds like my kind of place.  I hope they don’t serve those tiny little portions that make you wonder "What the h*ll is that, and where is my food?"  I’m green with envy.  I will certainly keep it bookmarked for some future trip to your fair city.  Thanks for sharing.  Peace.

    Hey Wordsmith! Thanks for stopping by! As you can imagine the appetizers were smaller portions, so we got multiple orders of the ones we liked.  The entrees were pretty large, enough to feed an average man.  The ambiance was low key and very relaxing, the drinks were pretty strong and the music was upbeat…I really liked it for the most part.

    Alright food critic what didn’t you like? You seem to hint at it but I looking for something definitive.  How come you didn’t get any dessert? Were you that stuffed?

    I have been to Ignite and truly enjoyed the drinks and the atmosphere. I haven’t been to Wolfgang Puck but my boyfriend went with some coworkers and loved it. I’m excited to go next week when I come home because I have heard nothing but great things about the food!

    Chocolate: I really had a wonderful time. We had a couple of service issues, but they weren’t enough to argue about. The only thing about my dinner that wasn’t perfect was the Horseradish Flan (the white layer at the bottom of the lobster crab salad) It was a bit overwhelming in texture and flavor. I didn’t have dessert that night (come to think of it, they didn’t offer a dessert menu or a tray)…and, I typically skip dessert when we go out. Although, I did indulge at the new Irridessence at Motor City Hotel & Casino a few weeks ago…so, I might have it on occassion (especially if they have a decadent chocolate dessert and it’s an early dinner).  I wasn’t stuffed to the brim, it was just really late and I don’t typically eat after 7:00 pm (I’m 49 and everything I eat sticks to my hips…so, I have to be careful).
    Cherish: I’m sure you’ll enjoy the food and the atmosphere. I was happy to see that there were a lot of Black people enjoying the place, which is not the case next door at Saltwater. Although, I like the decor at Saltwater better, the food at Wolfgang Puck is waaaaay better. Have fun….Detroit is on the move!
