La Becasse MI Ratings and Reviews
This is a restaurant for the cautious eater. If you don’t want garlic with your escargot and would like cassoulet that is large but very quiet in flavor, this is the place for you. Appetizers, where chefs often risk adventure, were few in choice-olives, cheese plate. Menu on Trip Advisor suggests more choice of sauces. Disappointed.
I've heard about this restaurant for years as a great place to celebrate a special occasion and it's indeed charming with wonderful service and a great wine list. The food however, was not great. We had a mixed review:
Cheese plate was lovely - but nothing I haven't seen at other places
Rabbit appetizer special - fatty and too much salt
House salad - wonderful
Pork Chop - way overcooked and too try
Seafood special (I can't remember the name)- not so special
I'm not sure if we miss ordered or the quality has really gone downhill. But I'm not 100% sure we'll return anytime soon.
I have visited this restaurant every time I’m in the area (2-3x/yr), it never disappoints. The atmosphere is quaint. The owner and waiter are always friendly and knowledgeable. But it’s the food and the chef that are the stars. Every bite of food is amazing. Between the three of us we had escargot, pate, squash soup, seafood gratin, beef burgundy, almond & pear tart, creme brûlée, chocolate mousse, an excellent Bordeaux and a Sauternes. Wonderful! Looking forward to my next visit.
I have been to this restaurant a couple of times, and each time I am there, I am reminded of how lovely this restaurant truly is. To find a place in rural northwestern michigan with such tasty food, friendly help, and great circuses is special. Keep it up - we'll be back!
Charming as always. The ambience is rustic and romantic and the food is simply outstanding. In the fall and winter months, the cassoulet is not to be missed — it is outstanding. Attentive, knowledgeable servers, wonderful atmosphere and very, very, very good food. La Becasse is a favorite!
Hadn't been here in 8-7 yrs. Food was good, but not as rich and tasty as I remembered. My beef burgundy lacked flavor as did the noodles that came with it. I expected a mouth-watering burgundy sauce, guess I presumed wrong. My husband's hanger steak had more flavor and sauce. Great wine selection, but a bit pricey. I make better Creme Brûlée, not thick and luscious. We'll give La Becasse another try on our next time in town.
Loved the food and service. Our server was so knowledgeable and gracious, and made us very comfortable. I had the special...and it was very fresh and delicious. The molten cake desert was fabulous. This is a small, cozy place and the tables are quite close. Don’t plan on having any private conversations! We had a hard time not listening in on the people next to us...our only issue with this wonderful restaurant.
This was our 47th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have had a more perfect evening. Our waiter Micah was superb and knew the menu extremely well. The food was a delight to the taste buds from the wine, appetizers, main course and then there was the chocolate mousse for dessert....WOW, we did it all and walked away knowing we celebrated our special occasion the most fantastic way possible....Micah added to all of it, but the food was absolutely YUMMY....

My wife & I came here for a combination birthday and anniversary celebration and we were not disappointed. We found high quality food & high quality & friendly service. Portions are on the smallish side so we both had an hors d'oeuvre, salad, main course, and desert. Everything was carefully prepared & presented & delicious & the service was always with a smile. We don't drink so we did not sample the extensive wine list but the table of 6 next to us had at least 3 different bottles and enjoyed them all. You get what you pay for and although it was quite expensive here you get quality over quantity. We will definitely come back again!
My wife and I went here for our 10 year anniversary and were beyond pleased with the experience. Food and service were exceptional. Atmosphere is classy, yet not pretentious. Wine list was the largest I've ever seen. Prices are High, but for a special occasion, you will have difficulty finding a better dining experience.
I've not visited the area in a while and Le Becasse even longer. They have improved over the years and we had memorable meal. Love the apertif list and food was superb; service even more so. The check was even a pleasant surprise- quite reasonable for the quality. Highly recommended!
We schedule our "last meal" of our summer stay in Leelanau at La Becasse. It has never failed to satisfy, both in service and food. The menu is always wide with excellent choices, the wine list is superb, and the service is impeccable. Would highly recommend.
Excellent and authentic French cuisine, Duck Duo was memorable. Can't wait to have another visit. Plesant staff and unhurried enjoying delicious appetizers, drinks and dessert. For Sleeping Bear Dunes locals and visitors, La Bècasse is a special treat.
Always a wonderful dining option around Glen Lake and we've been coming here through several owners. The only "miss" this visit were the appetizer specials: The mussels tasted "off" - maybe not as fresh as they should've been. And while the scallops were delicious, there were only two and they were on the (very) small side.
