Voyager 600 Vester St, Ferndale Seafood • $$$

“Overall, it is hands down one of the best seafood restaurants in the nation, if not the world. Their specials are always amazing and are worth chasing on a weekly basis. Their timing of the food delivery could be studied by all restaurants, as it is world class. Lastly, the halibut cheek buffalo wings are the best "wings" out there, do yourself a favor and get at least two orders if you have the pleasure of being there for them.”

Syndicate Ferndale 140 Vester Ave, Ferndale Cocktail Bar • $$

“Janel is an incredible Mixologist and Individual as a whole. Her creative vision from her art work, or her art and fresh, awe-aspiring, intrinsic cocktails she creates.

It’s a true gift to Ferndale’s community, and an incredible experience for even more. If you’re looking at this with consideration, consider it settled.

Coeur

Coeur 330 W Nine Mile Rd, Ferndale French • $$$

“We visited Coeur recently for the first time. The good: We liked the atmosphere of the restaurant.....very different from the former Assagi. Feel free to come casual. The restaurant was busy but not totally filled. Vibrant but not so noisy you can't talk to other people at your table. We started with the bread basket ($7) that comes with two excellent flavored butter...one quite spicy that I loved personally, and potatoe croquettes which were delicious....light as feather on the inside and crispy on the outside. My wife had the lamb burger and I had the steak frites. Both were cooked perfectly and very tasty as were the delightful fries that came with. We ordered the choc chip cookies for dessert which were good but have had better. Huge wine selection as well. Service was as good as it gets. The "bad"? The menu is pretty limited in terms of main plates. Although we found the portions adequate we heard others at neighboring tables complaining about the portions. Folks, you aren't at Olive Garden so don't expect an obscene amount of food to arrive on your plate. If you are looking for a new place to try on a night out I would recommend giving Coeur a try....just take a peek at the menu to make sure there are options on the menu that are appealing to you and your guests. If there is, you will no doubt enjoy your meal and experience there!”

Balkan House Ferndale 314 W Nine Mile Rd, Ferndale Modern European • $

“I’ve had The Balkan House in Ferndale once before, but this was my first time going to the Hamtramck location. The place is small but cute. Almost home like. It is in a house after all. Their food never falls short of delicious. I got the staple of a doner kabob (chicken) with their house seasoned fries. It seems large when it hits the table, but it’s almost the perfect size after you’re done eating it. It doesn’t leave you hungry but also not overly full. Whether you go to the Ferndale location or the Hamtramck location, you can’t go wrong. The staff has always been very friendly, service is fast, and the prices are completely agreeable. Everything about them is quality, and not with a “K”. I would recommend them to anyone in the area, I know I will always go back to them.”

Blue Nile 545 W Nine Mile Rd, Ferndale Ethiopian • $$

“we didn't even get served or get any food. they refused to serve us. it took near 10 minutes for some woman to even come over and bring us to a table. after that we watched as their servers sat at the bar, and helped every one of the maybe 6 tables in the entire place that were occupied except us. they clearly have some problem with gay people as they had no issues helping any of the other guests. i watched the servers acknowledge us and just go help the other tables. we have previously had uncomfortable experiences every single time we have been there where the male servers say things under their breath until they get so irritated with us that the female hostesses have to complete our service. i truly am astonished that someone who runs a small business/restaurant would be treating people who want to eat there like that. every employee in the establishment behaved as if we made them visibly uncomfortable so maybe consider going somewhere else if you're looking for dinner. Finally, the service was already bad to begin with on top of their utter and complete refusal to serve us this last time that we tried going. I would suggest giving your money to a restaurant that isn't fully run and owned by losers who clearly don't want money!”

Howe's Bayou 22848 Woodward Ave, Ferndale Cajun • $$

“I love this place and the people who took care of us. We had a party of ten and everything was very good. What stood out to me the most was how out of the way the employees went for us. I ordered something to go also and paid for it and forgot about it and left in a hurry because I had the tickets for an event we were attending on the next block. I didn't get his name but a nice man actually came to the event to find the person who forgot their takeout order. The server remembered me saying we were going there next. He went back and got my takeout and brought it back to me. You just don't find as many people that nice who cares as much these days.”

The food and drink combined with reserving a table can make the experience slightly pricey, but if you factor in the gaming options, it makes the price feel far more worth it!I love their fries, their specialty drinks, and most of the food I've tried, but there's just one food item I wouldn't recommend. I've ordered their 4 square personal pizza a number of times, and almost every time, it has come out burnt enough that it no longer tastes very good to me.

Payment is clunky as you have to manually enter your credit card information. Not to mention you have to pay and tip before you receive any service. Service is usually still good but they need a post-service tipping option. No WiFi available despite needing to get online to order.”

They are a tad crunchy on the outside and so chewy on the inside. Literal perfection. HOWEVER, my favorite bagel is the blueberry bagel and theirs is the worst. It has no blueberry flavor whatsoever. Not a single blueberry is inside it. It's just food coloring, IMO. It tastes like a plain bagel. And that makes me sad. Their salt, cinnamon sugar, and parm are the other ones I have tried and all of those are fantastic though!”

“Unassuming, unpretentious, but don't underestimate this small diner on Hilton near 9 Mile. When it comes to the food they are standing on business, and business is delicious. I recently stopped by to enjoy their Tuesday lunch special (2 coneys and fries) and the entire experience start to finish was great. Jessica was warm and friendly as soon as I hit the door, pointing out all the specials and daily soups from professional memory. I will be back and often as I just started work in the neighborhood

“I love this place and the people who took care of us. We had a party of ten and everything was very good. What stood out to me the most was how out of the way the employees went for us. I ordered something to go also and paid for it and forgot about it and left in a hurry because I had the tickets for an event we were attending on the next block. I didn't get his name but a nice man actually came to the event to find the person who forgot their takeout order. The server remembered me saying we were going there next. He went back and got my takeout and brought it back to me. You just don't find as many people that nice who cares as much these days.”

The Emory 22700 Woodward Ave, Ferndale American • $

“It was the perfect day to enjoy the patio at the Emory. Mellita, our waiter made sure we enjoyed our experience. We had a few sliders and fries. I had the regular fries, and they left alot to be deserved, they lacked seasoning and flavor for me. The truffle fries were obviously more elevated. The chipotle honey bbq slider was good, however i anticipated that the chicken would be drenched in the sauce, the sauce was only on top there top portion of the bun. The classic with substituted turkey patty with the special sauce was great. I added lettuce and tomato as well.”

New York Bagel 23316 Woodward Ave, Ferndale Bakery • $

“I wanted to give them 5 stars because, let's face it, their bagels are the absolute best by far in the Tri County area. Even better than the one in St. Clair Shores. They are a tad crunchy on the outside and so chewy on the inside. Literal perfection. HOWEVER, my favorite bagel is the blueberry bagel and theirs is the worst. It has no blueberry flavor whatsoever. Not a single blueberry is inside it. It's just food coloring, IMO. It tastes like a plain bagel. And that makes me sad. Their salt, cinnamon sugar, and parm are the other ones I have tried and all of those are fantastic though!”
