Lucy & the Wolf is a new restaurant on the corner of Main Street and Center in the historic district town of Northville and its iconic name-Lucy & the Wolf-captures the spirit of fun and imagination that infuses the food, drinks and atmosphere.

The restaurant's interior is completely refurbished, with reclaimed wood and brick walls and a wrap-around zinc bar. And while the simple and sleek look is a draw, it's all about the food.

The food and drinks have an old world charm with a new world twist. There is a definite Spanish flair to many of the dishes.

The intimate 60-seat restaurant is ideal for casual dining and drinks, where plates can be shared and friends found at the bar. From aged classic cocktails to a grilled fruit sangria, as well as craft beer and a well-chosen wine list-it's a well thought out and carefully orchestrated bar.

This was my first visit. Loved the food—the clams and shrimp were amazing and seasoned perfectly. So we’re the potatoes and asparagus. Large portions, great service. Will definitely be back.

The menu is somewhat limited, but each of the items we shared was obviously meticulously prepared and delicious. The service was superb, the food was great, and the atmosphere was casual and relaxed, yet quiet enough for normal conversation. We will be back!

We were seated at a 2 top half booth in a bank. Two more ladies were seated next to us and spoke loudly so we had noise issues.
Also, the menu ink is light and print is tiny, bring readers. I used my phone to magnify.
They dont offer lemonades or flavored teas so limited non alcoholic beverages.
We shared the perch. The warm potato salad was very flavorful. The perch was cooked beautifully and the mustard seed gave it amazing flavor.
Pricey small plates but delicious.

Sittin’ on your toosh and leaning on the bar does not promote spine comfort.

Lucy & the Wolf never disappoints! A friend and I split the roasted tomatoes (so,so good), the charcuterie plate, and the Wolf burger sliders. The burgers were the bomb - I would eat those every day! Fun atmosphere, delicious food, great service, creative and tasty cocktails. The only negative is the noise level....it gets pretty loud on a busy weekend evening.

We love unusual and interesting food...but had a hard time finding anything we liked on this menu. Settled on the sliders, which were decent at best. Also had shrimp tacos, which were the smallest shrimp I’ve ever seen. Bait shrimp used to fish, are bigger than the shrimp in the tacos. Drinks were the most redeeming part of our experience. Would only recommend if other Northville eateries are on a wait.

We did not know it was tapas, but it did not make a difference. The deviled eggs, roasted green beans, wolf burger, and perch were all delicious, but not as sweet as the mini donuts!

I've been here twice and each time had a good experience. It's a tapas/small plate style of place and I enjoy that. The food has been consistent and good. As with tapas, some dishes are better than others, but overall everything was well done. For me the highlight is always their cocktails, especially the barrel aged ones. I also like that they change up their menu. They had different items on my second visit and I appreciated having new options. It's also nice that they are open until 12 on the weekends as we usually prefer to eat later and it gives us the option to relax, order a few dishes over time, and then hang at the bar for an after dinner cocktail if we want. We will return and we do recommend the place.

I have enjoyed Lucy & the Wolf 's salmon tartare several times. With this visit I was disappointed that they no longer serve it and the on-line menu has not been updated to reflect the change. The salmon option offered in it's place did not compare.

Overall we had a positive experience. It was our first time dining here. I will say that I didn't enjoy how close the tables were to each other. All I could here was the conversation next to us and it was a bit noisy. The food overall was good. Salad was average, goat cheese was good, salmon and burgers were delicious. Drinks were pricey, but tasty. Server was attentive. The dining experience had some highs and lows.

Seated quickly on a Tuesday night; owner/waiter was very helpful and pleasant. Not many folks in the restaurant through our meal, but it was regularly (uncomfortably) loud, in our opinion, since the tables are right next to the bar. Menu didn't give us a good feel as to what we would actually get with our meal, and had to ask lots of questions. Fish was very fresh and well prepared, and worth the $18/plate cost. However, we thought the "blue mitten" salad we shared before our entrees was a bit steep at $10, for what we got. Overall nice experience.
