Honestly the best meal I think I've ever had in 34 years of living. The flavors in each dish were just absolutely phenomenal, and the menu had so many different options. Everything is small plates, which come out one by one, allowing for plenty of time for enjoying each bite, and having conversation. Perfect place for a date night. The cocktails we had were delicious as well, and make sure to save room for dessert. Definitely will be making multiple trips to this place each year!

Really interesting menu. Ravioli with figs and pistachio was absolutely terrific. Pickled beets very good. Steak perfectly cooked and tender, and crispy potatoes crispy on the outside, soft and creamy inside. We sat outside with the heaters. Tables are spaced apart and it felt very safe. Lovely dinner! Will definitely go back before winter kicks in.

Food is fantastic, and well worth the price. The owners are behind the counters handcrafting these meals together. Been there a couple times, would recommend making a reservation to assure a table. BBQ Carrots, Slow rolled steak, and shrimp are my go to's!

Excellent food, excellent service. Very caring staff. The passion for food and customer care shows in everything you experience when you have a Houndstooth meal. Seems many locals get their Houndstooth fix on-the-go, too! Always a good sign! A must-try when in the area.

Great outdoor dining space which is not reservable, so we made the earliest res and requested a table outside when we arrived. This was our second visit to Houndstooth and we were most impressed with the shared small plates, dessert and cocktails which were so inventive. Outstanding service and wonderful ambience. We plan to return in cooler weather as heaters are installed on the patio. We also appreciate their care with safety protocols for diners as well as staff.

Everything we ordered, from the bread, to the scallops, to the cucumbers, to the swordfish (new to us and SO yummy) to the steak, to the drinks to the dessert that we shared among four of us was OUTSTANDING. Notable: the sunflower/burrata appetizer. So thoughtful, so generous, just gorgeous and delicious. The attention to detail, the freshness, the creativity, the pure passion that comes through in each dish, all so appreciated by a group of die hard foodies. So grateful to have celebrated a Friday evening in late summer at Houndstooth! Thanks to all.

We are from Naperville, a suburb of Chicago, the food at Houndstooth was better than any food we have ever had in the city of Chicago. It is fantastic!! We have been there twice in two weeks and cannot wait to go back! If you are in SW Michigan dining at Houndstooth is a must!!

Easily the most interesting (and tasty) food in SW Michigan. We opted for a bunch of appetizers all of which were great. The cocktails were balanced and tasty especially the snail mail with the $1 donation to the USPS. We will be back.
