One of many visits to Funistrada and have never been disappointed. One of the best restaurants in Leelanau County. We are very fortunate to have such a great restaurant so near and open all year.

My husband & I, along with another couple went here based on opentable recommendations. We had the mussels and snails for appetizers. Both were tasteless. No spices, no olive oil or butter. I ordered the veal signature dish. It was extremely salty and very skimpy. Very poor. My husband had the monk fish which ok, but had no seasoning. Our friend was unimpressed with the pork roast. Our other friend did enjoy the butternut tortiliny. Very expensive restaurant and poor food. Very disappointing.

 (Cleveland)·Dined on January 20, 2018

I would like to give them more than five stars on service. I spilled my (nearly) full wine glass just as our entrees were served. In the brief time my wife was in the restroom doing her best to clean off, the staff completely reset our table from the cloth tablecloth up and replaced my wife's entire entree. The hostess, the assist and our waitress, Angie, were unbelievable. Still, while the service is exceptional, the food remains the reason we return every chance we get. My wife is from New York City and this is only restaurant she has found in the midwest that rivals the Italian ristorante in NYC (and the canollis from Alphonso's Bakery in Staten Island). We cannot compliment this restaurant enough.

One of our favorite places in the Glen Arbor area. Food and service are always great. Prices are average for the area. Comfortable and cozy. Usually very busy so reservations are necessary most of the year.

Once again Funistrada was great! We come whenever we are in the area and they never let us down. The shrimp scampi was delicious , the salads were wonderful. The greens with dried cherries had a fabulous dressing and the last of the seasons heirloom tomatoes were just right. We shared a veal scalopini. It was plenty for each of us. For dessert we shared some thing with graham cracker crust pecans caramel and chocolate! Yum!

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We have been coming to the Glen Lake area for about 4 years and hadn't heard of it. We loved that it was kind of out of the way, yet busy for a Sunday nite -- so a strong following. Food was great, good wine selections, fabulous dessert.

Almost a good time at Funistrada! The food is consistently delicious. I had the salmon and linguine in a gorgonzola sauce, and it was superb!! Two other diners had egglant parm, and loved it as well. Another had lasagna and the other had the anniversary chicken--all were very satisfied and several had enough to take home.

Always love eating at this place. Warm atmosphere, good food. House salad was ruined this time by too much vinegar in the dressing. Mentioned it to waitress who simply ignored the comment while she whisked away our barely touched salads. Not good.
