Our service was excellent; we were seated immediately upon entering the resataurant, and our waitress was both fast and pleasant. I ordered the quiche Lorraine, which I found different from my expectation, but still tasted good.

My boyfriend and I went to
My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening, and they were able to find us a booth in a quiet upstairs corner. The atmosphere was fantastic - dim, well placed lighting, nice decor, comfortable booth. We ordered a mixed drink and a glass of wine recommended by the waiter - both were great. The food was still the best part. It is flavorful, original, and the portions are huge. I would definitely go back. The service and food were wonderful!

Sweet Lorraine's is one of
Sweet Lorraine's is one of our favorite dining spots. Unfortunately, Tuesday evening's
waitress was rude and inattentive. This is an unusual experience at this restaurant.
We will continue to dine here,yet, will not sit at her station again.

The service was very good, waitress was extremely polite and energetic. There is a vast amount of food choices for every type of appetite within a reasonable price range. A little too noisy for a business luncheon.

We've been coming here for years and it was our 37th anniversary last week. We chose Sweet Lorraine's because they have an outstanding menu that changes frequently and is vegetarian-friendly as well. The waiter comped our shared dessert as a gift :)

Long time favorite!
Has been a personal favorite for over 20 years, though I don't get to dine here as often as I'd like. Today I tried one of the specials, Chicken "Pot Pie." We began our meal with the Gorgonzola Fondue which was priced at $3.95 and more than enough for my friend and I to share. Though my main entree was yummy (and I finished it), my all time favorite is the Pecan Chicken (which my friend ordered and loved). The restaurant had a variety of diners today (business, family, friends) and has a different atmosphere at night, very lively and fun for groups and couples.
Great decor and though I like sitting on the ground floor, I prefer the upstairs in the evening.

this place was unusual for me (being an out-of-towner) but it was lively inside with all the guests & the food, though eccentric was amazing & different! Great choices for vegetarians/vegans also. Enjoyable!

Something for every taste
Southfield was convenient for my family to meet up on my daughter's birthday after we were unable to secure a table for lunch at our first choice (Café Muse in Royal Oak). We trusted Open Table's suggestion of "similar places" and were not disappointed. The birthday girl, who is a vegetarian, found enough interesting options on the menu and was delighted with her choice, the veggie bahn mi. Other family members were able to satisfy their varying appetites, from small plates to full-fledged entrées. Portions were generous enough that we had, alas, no place left for dessert. The wine list was interesting (and I made a mental note to return one night to try the signature "St. Rita" cocktail, which looked yummy), service friendly and efficient.

I really like the ambiance of Sweet Lorraine's. It has a friendly, upbeat yet relaxed feel. The meal came quickly and the presentation was beautiful. I've been coming for years and will continue to do so.

Enjoyed my Meal
I always enjoy the food at Sweet Lorraine's. My favorite menu item is the pub fish and chips. They are always accommodating and the waitress gave my mom a slice of delicious carrot cake because we were celebrating her birthday.

Everything is fresh. Nice wait staff.

The food, as always, was quite good. However, the service left something to be desired. Our server was not used to working dinner time. We were over-charged for two items : a refill of ice tea (should be no charge for first refill) and for substituting sweet potato fries for rice (should be no charge). The manager handled this well, however. Also, the server was not as attentive as she should have been. Was no where to be found when we needed the tea refill and she just had someone drop a box at our table for the leftovers instead of boxing them herself which is what we were used to here at SLs.

The food is great they have a nice selection for vegans and vegetarians. Prices are reasonable and the service is great.

Favorite for Years
Always an interesting menu here, so we never tire of dining here after 20 years! I especially like their fish and their New Orleans style dishes at dinnertime.. Breakfast is very good, too! The place is always busy so I am glad they take reservations now on Open Table!

Awesome as Always
This is our third time coming here and we were not disappointed. They have a wide variety of options on the menu and if there is something that's not there, they are more than willing to accommodate. Food tasted amazing, and I tried a new drink that was new. It was fantastic.

Delicious Food, Unique Menu
We've enjoyed each visit to Sweet Lorraine restaurant. The menu has a nice variety of items that are "fine dining" but have that loving-touch, homemade appeal.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent dining experience!
The service was great. My favorite item is the Sweet Lorraine's speciality salad on the small plates menu. The thick dressing was an excellent compliment to it. The cheesecase has a lime flavored crust that is outstanding. The only downside was the cherrys that came with it. They didn't seem fresh.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We used to go here when my Mom and Dad still lived down there. Haven't been back in several years but just as good as ever -- if not even better!

New to the Neighborhood
Introduced my daughter to Sweet Lorraine's as she just moved to the area. My husband & I've loved it since we lived in Oak Park 20+ years ago. The menu includes many vegetarian options & it has dishes for many palates...little spice for my parents and super spicy for me. We started with calamari which came with three excellent dipping sauces. We then enjoyed every entree...lobster mac & cheese, Barcellona paella, perch & their version of fish & chips. All met our expectations. Split one dessert...the apple cobbler with cinnamon ice cream. Delicious and more than enough. NOTE: If you want to dine on Friday evening before 8:30 p.m. make a reservation no matter the size of your party. Recognize it will be packed and therefore noisy.

Sweet Lorraine's is a little quirky, off the beaten path kind of restaurant with anything but your usual American fare menu. I love the fact that they use fresh, local ingredients which help support our neighborhood farmers and entrepreneuers. None of the menu items are typical - read the ingredients carefully - but I have enjoyed everything I've ever had, whether it be off the breadkfast, lunch, or dinner menu. The atmosphere is a little jazzy, kinda noisy, but very pleasant. They used to have a piano player serenading diners with soft jazz in the background and I do miss that, but I always enjoy myself when I eat at Sweet Lorraine's. There's always a line - a testiment to the food- so make reservations, or at least call ahead.

great for birthdays!
I celebrated my birthday there Saturday night. My group of friends and I love our entrees and had a great time. They have nice round tables upstairs that seat parties of 5 to 7 people comfortably. (There were 6 of us in my group.) I had the rainforest tilapia, which was cooked perfectly!

One of our Favorite places
We have been going to Sweet Lorraine's for many years and for many occasions. Our children have enjoyed this spot and
now, our grandchildren enjoy this restaurant. Lorraine keeps the menu fresh and exciting. We truly have never been
disappointed in the food and the variety from which to choose.

Our server, Robby, was great.
Our server, Robby, was great. A little slow in getting our drinks to us and a little too quick with the entrees, which came up shortly after appetizer service. I would have liked my half bottle of chardonnay to have warmed up a little bit before my dinner came so I could have enjoyed my Sonoma Cutrer with your fabulous Chicken Pecan. It was probably the coldest bottle of wine I have ever received...almost frosty like a beer...too cold for my liking. Food was hot, nicely presented and everyone enjoyed their dish. No room for desserts. It was very busy for a Tuesday night...a little loud for our business dinner, but we made it work.

We went to Sweet Lorraine's on the recommendation of friend. Myself, and 2 girlfriends were out for an evening at the Michigan Opera House, and usually we try to find an interesting place to eat before attending the show. We found Sweet Lorraine's to be interesting, with a good mix of patrons, and the food was as well, interesting. We had made reservations, so we essentially had no wait, the service was very prompt, and the prices were not too bad. Would we go back? We sure would, as I said there were interesting choices on the menu, and it was a challenge to choose which one to have, so that warrants another visit!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite dish remains the salad (small plates menu). The poppyseed dressing is to die for!

My favorite restaurant
Sweet Lorraine's is my favorite restaurant for many reasons. First, the food is fantastic! Plenty of vegetarian choices, even for brunch, and if you are not a vegetarian, there's plenty for you to like. I've been here for lunch and dinner several times, but finally tried it for brunch this past Sunday and I can't wait to go back--the Vegetarian Quiche was great. The servers are always attentive and have good suggestions for beverages to complement the meal. Love the ambiance, the vibe, the decor. I feel at home here and always welcome.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been a frequent diner at Sweet Lorraine's, but this time the food was bad, and I won't be back. I had the quiche, which I have enjoyed many times before, and it was overcooked and nearly inedible. If a dish doesn't work on a given day, take it off the menu, don't charge $10 for it! Sorry, Lorraine, you've lost a customer.

Popular Spot with locals
Great place for dining, but if you're trying to make a reservation I'd suggest making it earlier than you really want to eat…they get unexpectedly busy often with local patrons. We drove an hour as part of an evening out, with the idea of eating later than normal -- 8 pm and they had gotten swamped -- 30+ people still waiting to be seated when we arrived. They managed to get us seated about 30 minutes later.. it was a great experience overall, and they were very apologetic…can't fault them for being popular. Love the menu.
