‘‘Twas an OK experience. None of us were BLOWN away by food. Everything was just good enuf...

And we were not worthy enuf of a visit by Mr. George - though based on reviews it appears he visits every table 😏

This was our first time to Le George...we went because they're in Delta SkyMiles Dining. What a WONDERFUL experience! We ate outside on a Wednesday evening...we could hear the live music from the nearby square and, unlike many other patio dining locations, the street noise wasn't disturbing. The food was great. The owner himself was attentive. Plus half-off bottles of wine on Wed. I'll be back.

We came for Mother’s Day and everything was perfect. Great wine & amazing food! Our table tried a bit of everything on the menu & everyone loved their meal. Excellent service. It was a lovely experience & we will definitely be back soon. Also- lots of vegetarian & vegan options!

This was my first time at Le George and I requested a table or booth near the wall. There are many booths but we were given the “VIP” booth which is semi-private. It was absolutely perfect for our mini-party. The owner personally greeted us and made sure that everything was perfect. We had a bottle of rosé champagne that was delicious and served at the correct temperature which many places don’t quite get right. Our meal was outstanding! We had the “Vegetarian Menu” and à side of the garlic mousse. And of course hot out of the oven bread. Everything was fresh and exquisitely prepared. Delicious, refined, well-presented. The portions are absolutely ideal. I would always rather have a “European portion” of delectable and nuanced food than an”American portion” of bland food that is “brought to life” by the addition of too much salt. Quality over quantity! But even with more reasonable portion sizes we couldn’t finish everything and, in fact, my friend left with a carry-out container with enough for both her mother and her to eat for lunch the next day. I called my husband on my way home and told him that I want to go back with him! It was just a wonderful evening and I highly recommend Le George.

Seriously the worst overall dining experience EVER!!! The food was mediocre, the service was absolutely AWFUL! Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time or money at this place! We ordered the combo for 4 and they missed items on it and made it seem like it was our fault that they just got new menus today and their kitchen staff doesn’t know what the new items are. Not once did we get an apology or even had someone come and check up on us! Just do yourself a favor and stay AWAY!

Oh Le George. On the positive side, the baba ganoush and chicken were very tasty. Everything else left quite a bit to be desired. I wish I had read other reviews before going here. The hummus and lentil soup were the blandest things I've ever tasted. The servings are also ridiculously small - even my glass of wine was the smallest pour I've ever received. The staff were lovely, but you can tell that management runs a very thrifty operation. There are much better restaurants where you will be a better experience for your money in Northville.

My husband had the ratatouille, which was amazing. He doesn’t even like eggplant, just tried it because he felt like something different, and his plate was so clean when he finished, I couldn’t believe it. I had a taste and also was amazed- so good!

We didn't know there was an event in town, but we were seated promptly , outside as requseted. Tight seating out there, very close to other table. Waitress was ditzy, took a lot of time to get drinks, and ordered right then. Ordered the hummus, she brought bread right out but the hummus took a long time to be prepped. ( hummus?) . Salads were perfunctory.
Our friends food was good, and they seemed pleased. My chicken artichoke dish was overcooked. ( My wine was good but it was only like 4 oz it seemed). Maybe they were slammed and had staffing issues, but it was off enough that we wont be back.

Le George is a regular spot for us, and we love the food and the service (especially when George is involved). This experience was a bit chaotic (it was Mother’s Day). It was clear that something was awry with reservations, as multiple people (ourselves included) used opentable to reserve, but were met with confounded glances by the hostesses who clearly weren’t tracking many of the reservations that came in this way. We watched as a party of 6, without reservations mind you, were sat before us. Thankfully, the staff scrambled to make a table for us, but many people ended up leaving in frustration due to the reservation snafu. Once seated, service and food were great. George was super busy with the restaurant filled to capacity, so he never made it over to say Hi. Unfortunate experience, but one that is easily forgiven due to the goodwill built up over many of experiences here over the years. Le George is best visited when things are much slower. When things get super busy, we’ve noticed that the restaurant doesn’t operate at full efficiency. We still love it. Northville’s best restaurant, in our opinion.

This is the second time that I had a less than favorable experience at LeGeorge. The chicken was so tough it was hard to chew. The amount of wine you get in your class is simply a crime. They offer the same bottle as Tiramisu does but LaGeorge charges $10 more. The glass is $12 each and literally is so small I would not be surprised if they can get eight “glasses” out of the bottle!! I had a reservation and was there a few minutes before my friend. The hostess sat me without saying anything then I saw the owner tell her to go ask me something, she came over and said “how long before the second person will be here?” At this point, are they going to make me get back up and wait? Also, the amount of time we had to wait between ordering the second shot of wine and getting it was ridiculous. I will not be visiting LeGeorge again.

We ate here a year ago and enjoy it very much. Our recent experience was not so good. We ordered a hummus, and the shwarma combo which includes a soup or salad. All the food was served practically at the same time, and the shwarma was very dried out and crispy, as if it had been sitting around for a while. For dessert we had a baclava and a rice pudding which were ok. Perhaps it was just an off night for them. We shall try it again and order something different.

The French, Lebanese and Mediterranean food influences were very appealing and the food was excellent with fresh ingredients. We received personalized attention from the server and the owner both of whom were very warm and gracious while we ate at their restaurant. In my group of 4 who visited the restaurant none of us had any negatives about the food or service. This is a restaurant we will visit again as it was excellent value for the quality of food and service provided.

This is a Lebanese-French family-owned restaurant with a unique menu. While its food is well-prepared and tasty, it does not have the airs of a fancy high-end restaurant. Georges is always personally there to make sure that the customers are taken care of and takes pride in the authenticity and quality of the food. The only drawback of this place is that it is small. This means significant waits even with reservations and a moderately high noise level. Despite this, I like the place very much and recommend it. Just don't go there when my wife and I plan to visit it. Thanks.
