About Mikette

Our cuisine is inspired by Southern French flavors and techniques with additional influences from neighboring countries on the Mediterranean. You'll find some classic French dishes we've made our own as well as an outstanding Oyster & Raw bar.

Our 3 season patio can accommodate larger parties. It is located under a covered canopy with walls that can be drawn during good weather and lowered when necessary. To make a reservation for a party larger than five, please call the restaurant for availability.

We are currently only open for dinner service, but will be expanding to Lunch and Brunch in the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you!

Mikette was turning into one of our favorite places to eat and had recommeded it to a lot of friends (currently telling them not to bother), then they completely changed the menu and pretty much got rid of everything we ordered. I asked the waiter why and for some new recommendations and received a pretty lack luster response to both questions. This is okay, or pretty good, seems to be popular no excitement and just added to our already disappointed mindset. Also - they are no longer supporting wisely which was also a bummer.

Along the lines of a classic French Bistro, Mikette serves classic French dishes which are good for the soul. The menu is expansive enough to suit anyone's tastes. The food choices, whether they be appetizers or entrees are tasty, simple, and flavorful. Mikette is a definite "favorite" on my list.

My second business lunch as Mikette in the last couple of months. Excellent food and service. The price is fair, but towards the high end of what I typically do for lunch. Would definitely recommend to others.

On a rare Weekend day when both my fiancée and I had the day off, we decided to do a date night and reserved the table at Mikette. This was our 4th visit, and it has become our favorite on U of M's North Campus (Plymouth Road).

On my last visit, we had been informed of the fried chicken dinner weekly special (Sunday afternoons only).

Mikette is wonderful for getting several small plates and sharing. I like to mix up ordering new dishes with old favorites. I have never been disappointed with any dish I have ordered here. I would recommend Mikette to almost anyone, comfort food (Beef Bourguignon),
seafood lovers (mussels, oysters, fish) , and items for picky foodies.

The decorations are lovely, and it has a very intimate atmosphere that is perfect for a romantic date. If you prefer a normal table (instead of a high-top) it is recommended to make a reservation. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. They always ask to see if any first-time visitors need help navigating the menu.

On this visit ordered:

1. The Salmon Pâté (with Zingerman's Bread)

This is my fiancée's favorite dish. The dill in the seasoning is just fantastic. This is one we almost always order.

2. The Fried Chicken Special

Crispy breading and very tender/juicy meat! It was 1/2 a chicken so it included 1 breast, 1 drum, 1 thigh, and 1 wing. I will be back on a future Sunday to have this again for sure (and I'll bring along my friends!) The portion size is enough for two people to share if you are getting a few small plates to share. But I am sure one person could finish it if he/she was very hungry.

3. The Duck Dog

This was also a new item for us to try! (I don't remember seeing it on the menu for our last visit?) It ending up being very tasty! A rich and flavorful duck sausage with grilled onions on a toasted slice of brioche (in lieu of a bun), and mustard on the side. I did not expect it to be that good, but Mikette delivers without fail!

Thanks again!

Have dined multiple times and never been disappointed until this visit. Although the French onion soup is as delicious as ever, the chicken was very salty and an order of gougeres now consists of A gougere. I will return again as it does remind me of France and hope that further changes only impact the positive value of the dining experience.

 (New England)·Dined on November 24, 2017

We had a very friendly server (female--about 50-something?) who kindly explained the menu as it was our first visit.

The food was better-than-average, but the salmon pate' left us confused: it was served on a small plate (which is why I don't think it was the "entree" of Roasted Salmon), but wasn't "pate'" at all--it was a piece of cooked salmon served over...honestly, I cannot recall what else was included, but it was most definitely not a pate'. Admittedly, it was a pretty tasty piece of salmon. One guest in our party was from Anchorage, AK, so she is VERY particular about salmon, and she said it "wasn't bad," which I took to mean it was "good enough" in her book!

Unfortunately, my least favorite aspect of our experience happened to be the table at which our party of four was seated. It was crammed right up against the servers' computer screen for logging in orders and totaling out checks. Because of that, at frequent and regular intervals during our dining experience, our two guests across from me and my Alaskan friend had a server's body (or butt in many cases) right behind their heads or between their heads throughout dinner. The two of us facing in that direction had to stare at the multiple servers standing nearly on top of our table, and she and I had tolook right into the glowing flat computer screen during the visit. Just not the "ambiance" I expected for a restaurant such as this. The other view from our table looked right into the bathroom doors across another table. I realize someone will most likely look in the direction of a bathroom, but that and the fact the table was crammed up near the servers' computer took away from our experience. There were no candles on the tables, which I think they needed. We had no lighting over our specific table, so it appeared dark and flat. Other tables looked more comfortable (had padded banquets) and had ambient lighting above the tables, which I'd prefer.

Let's start with the service - they started by asking if we could finish eating within a 2 hours because they had another table after us. They were essentially rushing us before we even ordered.
As for food. everything was ridiculously salty, even the salad. So much to the point that we felt dehydrated. Meanwhile, the foie gras mousse had only a hint of livery flavor. It was an insult to French cuisine. Needless to say, not coming back.

Food is really good, with one small caveat --- almost every dish was too salty. Butter and salt make everything tastier, but not if it is too much. Go easier on the salt, because the dishes were flavorful and tasty in themselves and didn't need the extra salt to cover anything.

We've been to Mikette a few times prior so we know what to expect. What set this visit apart from others was the superior service we received from our server Jessica. Not only was she friendly and nice she provided recommendations that turned out great and went above and beyond. When it came time to leave I wanted to pass along our appreciation and we learned it was her first night there and we were her first guests. I would have never guessed that someone with such confidence and poise would just be starting her career at Mikette.

We had the pleasure of dining at the 2 sister restaurants in A2 (mani and isalita), also owned and run by the owners of Mikette, and have always left having a great meal. We made reservations at Mikette with great expectations of having a similar experience. However, we were quite disappointed and have no plans to return.

I really didn't like this restaurant for several reasons. Number one, the wood chair I was seated in was very uncomfortable. Number two, I have celiac disease, and the gluten free selection was very limited. Number three, the waiter wasn't very helpful. And number four, the food was sound but not enough to bring me back.

A fairly serious take on the French Bistro, this out of way spot tucked in a non-descript strip mall, has an engaging if limited lunch menu.
Neither cheap or overpriced, it’s good value food.

Having spent a lot of time in Paris, I think this restaurant is pretty darn close to a real Parisian bistro. Great authentic french food, cozy atmosphere and lots of happy energy from wait staff. Makes me homesick for Paris when I have dinner there. It is very popular so make a reservation in advance.

We visited on a Friday evening. The place was very lively, with lots of folks who appeared to have come after work for a cocktail. We found that it was fun to order small plates for our group. Wine by the glass was great...we were early enough for happy hour, and the house wines were nice french blends. The oysters are outstanding. Escargot comes with snails in a pot of broth...prepared well, but not the classic presentation. The cheesy popovers are a signature dish, and worth ordering if you have at least 4 people to share them. Service and ambiance were very nice. We'll be back.
