Upscale Lebanese Gem
This gem claims the corner of a parking lot turning it into an oasis of gracious dining. A spacious room with well-appointed tables is supplemented by an outdoor area screened off with a dense wall of evergreens for warm weather dining. The large menu includes traditional Lebanese favorites as well as less familiar dishes, each accompanied by a description. Wait staff are ready to help. Dishes were tasty and generous. One starter featured strips of calamari lightly floured and gently sautéed, perfectly tender - nothing like the common fried rubbery rings. The crushed lentil soup was hearty and earthy. Our gracious and always-smiling waiter treated us as guests in his home. This was our fourth visit and each has been equally pleasant.

Excellent food, lovely ambience
I usually go here for a lunch with colleagues or friends when we want to converse extensively during the meal. Food is very good with a Lebanese flavor and creative twists, service is efficient but unobtrusive, the setting is elegant and the ambience is relaxed. Although it is located in the corner of a big box style parking lot, the restaurant is screened off with large potted evergreens and the outdoor dining area is lovely. We've introduced many friends to the place and they have become regulars.

A really nice meal - Middle
A really nice meal - Middle Eastern food a cut above most of the similar restaurants in Metro Detroit. Nice to sit outside, but the service was slow - and it was a very quiet night for the restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their food and the wait staff was helpful. Will come back.

We have many middle eastern restaurants in our area, but LeChef was truly a great find. The mujadra was perfect, made with rice & lentils, which is great for me since I have a gluten sensitivity. There is a chickpea & garlic appetizer that could have been our meal, it was large and filling. I would recommend this restaurant easily.

While everything was fabulous,
While everything was fabulous, we feel the cost of the entrees are a bit pricey and would come more often if they were lower.
$21.00 for stuffed zuchinne? Really?
Still, on special occasions I would pay that. However, you are missing a popuation that would love the food if they could afford to come.

LeChef offers wonderful middle eastern selections, even for vegetarians, vegans, etc. We had a large group, so our food choices were varied, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The mujadra is excellent, made with rice and lentils instead of cracked wheat and lentils. The salads are delicious. The wine selection is reasonably priced, and they have an organic red that is excellent.

I love Le Chef and dine there often. The ingredients are fresh and the staff members are warm and attentive.

Great Lebanese Restaurant
This Lebanese restaurant was recommended by a Lebanese colleague as the best in the area. What is notable is that she lives in Dearborn, which is known for its middle eastern restaurants. She actually drives across town with her family to come here. It is clear why-- it is superb.
