Loved the Oakland Restaurant Week meal
The venue is dimly lit and has a nonchalant ambiance. The service is friendly and well-paced. Most importantly, the food is reliably delicious (comfortably filling and heartwarming). There's a good variety of drinks available--beer, wine, cocktails--to suit any mood. Michel delivers...and it won't break the bank.
My first time here and I enjoyed it. But we both ordered the Oakland Restaurant Week menu and it took much too long between the first course and 2nd course.
Just OK. The restaurant week menu was mediocre at best, and the jazz playing on the sound system was unpleasant. Not enough here to prompt us to return.
Great, if small menu. Good DJ during brunch, but music wasn't too loud.
I was very pleased with all aspects of the dining experience. Staff was attentive and the food was delicious.
Wonderful dining experience!
Oakland Restaurant Week had many options to chose from and Michel stood out.
Conveniently located on Lakeshore, walking in the door we immediately appreciated the ambience.
Very comfortable decor, movie playing on the brick wall, a conversation written in French on the wall, Mais Oui!
The owner was extremely charming and informative.
The service was both accommodating and professional.
And the cuisine...WOW! DELISH! Cocktails too!
My husband had the special menu for restaurant week: Chicken Pave-spectacular!
And I enjoyed items off the menu, Moules and Pommes Dauphine. Beyond fabulous!
Delicious 3 course meal. Each was spectacular.
Unfortunately the menu was very limited, prices had gone up, the dishes were the same
ones featured over two years ago. And some of the tastier dishes had been removed.
We did not stay to eat. Too bad, but it’s not the same restaurant of old.
Met two friends for a lovely dinner. The steak bavette was fabulous. Can't remember the name of the wine but it was Mouvedre and Syrah and went well with the food. Wish they would do the cassoulet again.
Staff was great in accommodating our large group celebrating a bday. Lamb burgers were as tasty as I remembered. All desserts were excellent! Fav was the apple galette.
We enjoyed all the dishes we tried. They do not have a kids menu (fine by us), which forced my kids to try new things. We loved the duck and we had a smoked trout started that was delicious. We onew nothing about this restaurant when we booked it and we were pleasantly surprised. We would definitely come back.
Love this place... staff is so sweet... the chilled oyster soup is now my new favorite thing.
I booked the reservation for New Years Eve. We had to wait 25 minutes for our table. The waitress, who was not feeling well, did not want to provide any real service, answer questions or help with the menu. The entrees were lukewarm. The desserts were a choice between a liver creme brûlée, the brainchild of an all too clever chef, and a chocolate profiterole. When asked if there was another option by my guest who doesn’t eat liver or chocolate the waitress replied no. It was a much friendlier waitress who managed a profiterole without chocolate. The entire experience was an enormous disappointment. An automatic gratuity was included for what I consider very poor service. I have eaten here twice in the past and had fine experiences both times but I will never go back for prix fixe there again. Last year’s experience at Shakewell was by far better and less expensive.
Fantastic night on NYE. Great pre fixe menu and well worth it! Great service at the bar and friendly staff. Much appreciated!
