Me and my wife met my daughter here for a brunch. My daughter chose the site. It was enjoyable, the wait staff was great and the food was good.

Traditional Italian Restaurant. Located just north of Downtown Rochester Hills, Michigan. We are located in the Papa Joe's Plaza.
The silver spoon is amazing. From the food to the atmosphere it's always fabulous. We love the parties on Wednesday nights and when they set up tents and a band on the patio. This is one of our favorite local restaurants in Rochester. Where you go and feel like family.

Lipuma's Coney Island has many varieties of hot dogs and all that I tried are good. If you go there in summer there is a long line of people waiting to get in.

Even though we had reservations, we still waited 20 min. We worried that we would be late to see our Meadow Brook performance that evening, but we were not. When we were finally seated, we were promptly waited on. We had a very friendly, fast waiter.This is an extremely small restaurant. We were seated at a table for two, and we had to sit on our winter coats as there was no place to put them. This was a little awkward. We were brought a wonderful warm garlic bread. After that, our meals came up really fast. Hubby had the Charleys Chowder and Stuffed Trout which he loved, and I had the Lobster,Shrimp, Scallop in a nice tomato buttery sauce. Hard to explain, but it was perfect. The seafood tasted very fresh, which is what I expect from K&M. As it turned out, since the service was so great, we didn't feel rushed and we even had a few minutes to spare before we had to leave. We will definitely be back. Great.

We went there with a group of five people for Happy Hour which lasted fairly long. We sat at the bar area at a nice corner table. We had lots of drinks and food from both, the Happy Hour menu and the regular one. Was a nice combination of both! I personally only ate from the Happy Hour one. The three plates I choose were enough for me for dinner!

The city of Rochester was swamped, finally found a parking spot on the top floor of the parking structure nearby! Restaurant was busy as usual and maybe even a bit crazier than normal. Wait service was timely but clumsy in delivery. Drinks were improperly fixed and wait staff were rushing about, but the food was excellent! Perch, twin filets, chicken and the signature linguine with lobster & shrimp were excellent! Charley’s chowder and salad to start were all of proper temp and delicious. Unfortunately our waiter dropped a tray of drinks towards the end of the evening splashing more than a couple of diners. Great meal, talented wait staff would get it 5 stars.

Very simple menu, but very popular with the locals. Baked pasta dishes are very good.Pizza is a house specialty and comes as in dividual up to large. Good assortment of bottled beer. Service is friendly and attentive.

Great vibe, feels like a city spot in the 'burbs. Staff were super, our server Nicole was a gem. Cocktails? A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Appetizers, if you can order as many as possible. Perfectly seasoned, great tasting and small enough portions to allow you to enjoy a couple of them! I am a huge fan of The Bristol in Chicago, their fried chicken is the best in town. The Meeting House's smoked chicken was even moister that The Bristol's. Again, perfectly seasoned and well worth it. My wife got the beef medallions and it was all she could do to stop herself licking the plate.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the wait and the poor communication. If you are waiting an hour+, let me know whats going on every now and then. They have a text service but I need a little affirmation that you haven't forgotten about me in the meantime. I will be back!

This is probably the 3rd time I've been here and I really like the food. They start off by making salsa right at your table. You can choose whether you want hot or mild salsa. I like mine really hot and they actually got it to where I drank all my water to cool it down! We didn't have the best waiter, but the girl that was making the salsa assisted in bringing more chips and water to our table. It took forever to get our bill - or even to get the attention of our waiter! I ordered the tostada salad with shrimp and the shrimp was really delicious. The salad was in an edible bowl and I was pretty full from the salad so I didn't eat the bowl. My friend got the pick 3 combo and really liked his food also. He got a tamale, a burrito and a taco. He enjoyed all of his food and took some of it home because the order was so large. Definitely go here with a huge appetite. The chips and salsa alone are awesome!

Headed here for New Year's Eve as we also took in Rochester's amazing winter light show.
Had a few problems getting a table. Phoned in the morning and was told there were not taking reservations, but that we could phone closer to our desired time and get a wait time. So I did. Then I was told No, you have to come and wait. So, we went.
I dropped my wife off, parked, and went in. She told me they said it was a 35 to 40 minute wait. I looked around to see numerous empty tables. So, I went up. No, I had tried to make a reservation but was told I couldn't. I'd phoned to get on the list and was told I couldn't. I showed up and was told there was up to a 40 minute wait yet there were lots of empty tables? They managed to find us a very nice table within 2 minutes. I know NYE can be problematic for establishments but get it together folks - MANAGEMENT.
Our server was great. He really worked hard to suggest beer samples for both my wife and I. And there was a nice variety of Pilseners and Alex, from wheat beers to Porters to light lagers to a red velvet chocolate sample that tasted just like the cake.
Louisiana Jumbalaya was quite good. Needed a little more hot sauce but was packed with sausage and chicken in a rich tomato sauce. Liked the accompanying garlic cheese flatbread but it needed a side plate.
My wife's cod and chips was ample. Cod was very tender with a light, crispy batter. Chips were a little thin but were very crispy and nicely flavoured.
It is a large setting with an area for a band. It was nice because the music did not overpower where we were seated.
There were also 5 pool tables down the centre of the large area. A lot of fun could be had here.
So, outside of the booking issue, this place gets a thumbs up.
