Dinner was fine, all the food is prepared with high quality ingredients. My only complaint is the portion size, it seems not to be in line with the dish cost. Other than that, great food.

An average experience. Food was ok but the service wasn’t great and the hostess was clueless. We had a reservation and she couldn’t seem to figure out how to do her job.

Restaurant is always busy (good sign). I've tried to stop in without reservations and was informed of a long wait, so this time in town made a reservation. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is casual and fun. The décor is interesting and engaging. The space we were seated in seemed in very close proximity those around us, yet we did not feel we were inadvertently including anyone else in our conversation, so it remained open and enjoyable.
I will say the drinks were very creative, but too busy for my taste. Next time I visit (and there will be a next time) I will likely not order off the drink menu, but rather ask for exactly what suits me.
The Crispy Calamari appetizer was very good. Nice light breading on the Calamari and both garlic aioli and Thai chili sauces complemented the dish excellently.
My guest's meal was the Steak Frites, which is a New York strip steak with fries. Sounds very simple, but the flavors were complex. On sight I thought the meat undercooked to my preference, as I thought the rarity would bear on texture, which is important as well... Then she suggested I sample it... Wow! The steak was prepared perfectly pink medium rare and tender with a garlic seasoned sauce that bursting with magical flavor!
My meal was the Beef Bourguignon, which is braised short ribs and root vegetables. Let me rewind and say that the presentation and aroma of both of these meals was wonderful... but the flavors were (I'll use this term again) magical! The beef short ribs were exquisitely flavorful and the meat just melted 'like butter'. There were other nice things in there somewhere too, but I cannot get past expressing how great they cook meat.
After dinner at Mikette Bistro, my guest and I, who had travelled together to Ann Arbor for work, vow to return on future visits and sample as much of this menu as we can.... The quality of presentation, texture, and flavor of the entrée's truly made this and exceptional experience for us both.

First visit to Mikette. Building was oppressively overheated. Food was only fair- the appetizers were better than the entrees. Service was slow but attentive. Beef was tough. At least they allowed us to bring our own wine and there was no corkage fee.

We love the ambiance. However, it was too cold when we went this week. Additionally, their coke machine was flat. They eventually got us non-flat coke, but it required a bit of conversation. One hour after we got home from the restaurant, both of us experienced cramps. WE think it was the french fries. We will go again. Not good at all for those who are vegan or gluten free. They don't have gluten free bread options at all. We have asked them to get some for the past year or so.

Had the Sunday special Fried Chicken. Fabulous!! Thighs cooked perfectly while breast meat succulent, all seasoned beautifully with crispy coating. But the star was actually the chicken soup, best I’ve ever had; the vegetables, pasta, meat & broth each shone gloriously to produce a symphony of chickeny goodness. Stacey served us with personal attentiveness, professionalism, and delightful good cheer. Along with an impressive yet affordable French-focused wine list, attractive happy hour offerings and fresh ingredients, Mikette is rapidly becoming one of my Ann Arbor favorites.

Could be what I ordered, but did not find my two choices to be extraordinary enough to justify the price, nor some of the rave reviews I’ve read. Portions are typical “French-sized” (small), but don’t seem very French-y to me, and no beautiful French bread brought to munch on pre-dinner. Been twice, and didn’t find the former meal to be memorable either. So, disappointing! But ambiance pleasant and service great!

While I understand the economics of it, we were disappointed by the new trimmed down menu. It wasn't reflected on their website, so I was a surprise when we arrived. Service was just slightly inattentive on beverage orders - taking one and not checking the rest of the table a couple times. Overall still good, but not outstanding as it once was.

Food was delicious; note the portions are just medium (which we like). Service was poor; didn't ask us if we wanted a cocktail (so some of us ordered with our entrees), didn't ask if we wanted a second cocktail, didn't ask if we wanted bread for the table or coffee with dessert. Maybe he was new, but for the price, I expect better service.

Dinner was tasty. We were a table of four. The beet salad was very nice as were the fried oyster sliders. As always, the GOUGÈRE were superb. We each had a different entree--steak frites, halibut, chicken Provencal and mussels. All very good. I'll pass on the creme brulee next time. Pretty dry. Tasted like it had been in the fridge for a day or two too long.

Be prepared to strain to hear your dinner mates. Background noise clocked in from 65 yo 75 decibels. Yes, one of our party has an app that measures this. All in all a very nice meal with friends.

Had lunch at Mikette. Tried three starters, and one main dish. Loved the starters, shrimp sliders, avocado/crab toast, tomato soup. Excellent flavors, good size portions. The beef stew was also very good. Had three deserts, vanilla ice cream, chocolate mousse, and creme brulee, wonderful! Service was prompt and pleasant. All in all, an excellent experience. We will be returning soon.

Great Food and atmosphere is nice. My only complaint is that I made reservations on open table and this is the second time my party of 4 had the table right next to the bathroom door. I had hoped that the first time was a fluke—I will make sure to request with my next reservation that I am NOT Seated there— it would just be nice to see more of the restaurant

I used to frequent Mikette in the past and had not been there in a while. The restaurant has changed it's seating so that it is more open, less of a bistro feeling. The food choices were good, but surprisingly, there were no poultry choices available. We were there for lunch. Our drinks were very good. We had ordered the Mikette Sour. The food was good. However, all of our meals,, including appetizers, were lukewarm when they arrived, which unfortunately made the meal less appealing. We had flan for dessert, which was a bit on the heavy side. All in all, it seems as if the quality of food was not as good as it used to be. Or maybe...it was an off day? On the bright side, our waitress was very attentive and efficient.

Their soups had too much salt in them - and I love salt. The salad was drenched with dressing; I always forget I HAVE to ask to have it on the side, or too often, this happens. Besides that though, soups were delicious and mousse was to die for (topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate!)

The food is overall outstanding and unique. The beef burgundy was OK but not up to the French standard one would expect from this restaurant. The mussels, the mushroom tart and the chocolate mousse were excellent. One problem was that all the dishes were brought to our table within five minutes. Not clear if this was a waitress problem or a kitchen problem, but we managed!
