Our request for a secluded table was honored, which we appreciated.
Everything was fantastic! I'd been wanting to go ever since they opened, and was able to get a last minute reservation. Honestly, we probably could have just walked in, which I don't get --- the food and atmosphere were terrific. Either everyone came for brunch earlier that day, or their brunch is the best kept secret in town.
Its a beautiful space and was a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Being a vegan I cant really rate the food other than to say there was very little I could eat. But the birthday boy enjoyed his app, entree and complimentary dessert so that is all that mattered. I really wish they would put a veg entree on the menu that could easily be adapted for the vegans. I cant be the only one in A2. And our server was AMAZING!
Food was excellent and service very good and friendly. Didn't like that you have to pay for bread and butter, though, and the restaurant is fairly noisy. Still would recommend though given quality of food and service.
Always a good time and great service here!
This is the second time we have been there where our friends have not liked their meal. Once this fall and last Saturday. Not sure we will go back.
Mussels, lobster bisque, pate de campagne, hard cider. Need I say more? Always good, always a pleasure! It is so easy to spend a lot of money on a mediocre, not special meal out. This place is worth the money, and it isn't all that expensive. go there!
Amazing! My fave in A2
Everything was very good-no complaints. There are other choices too besides just French food-the menu is very diverse.
Lunch with a friend. Between us ordered oysters, shrimp cocktail, calamari, bread and butter, a couple of martinis, and a take out order of the charcuterie platter for husband’s supper. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented with the sauces being real standouts and some interesting twists such as what tasted like balsamic grapes as accompaniment to the charcuterie platter and a killer raspberry conserve to go with the cheeses. The country pate is also great. I was mildly put off at first by the idea of having to pay $5 for an order of bread and butter, but the the exquisite whole small baguette with Plugra butter garnished with sea salt made me purr, and was perfect with the rest of our order. An interesting and delicious touch with the calamari was the addition of several small chips of bread and butter pickle deep fried along with it, unexpectedly good. I have, and usually to my chagrin, often paid as much for lunch elsewhere for food not nearly as good. In addition to being good, Mikette is a good value for the money.
I was not happy at all with our dinner at Mikette. I noticed immediately that they are now charging $5 for bread! The salad they are calling “Caesar salad”is a soggy , overly dressed , way too salty mess of shaved kale and I don’t remember what else and the formerly delicious fried chicken came out bloody near the bone .... we sent it back and smaller pieces were brought out.... way too much crispy stuff and still not cooked all the way through.
Very disappointed with the experience. I must add that the waiters did their best.
Ps... for such an expensive dinner, they should be able to afford China dishes for the little bit of pickled what nots on the plate, not paper cups.
Great atmosphere and French food.
Outstanding Sunday brunch menu. Manuel was a fantastic server.
We loved Ahmed! And the gougeres were delicious.
Beautiful and tasty!
Finally, a restaurant that changes its menu on a somewhat regular basis. Not that items on the prior menu weren't excellent (my favorite Duck Confit and lentils is now gone), new items are equally outstanding. I find restaurants that keep the same menu month after month, year after year as evidence of the lack of creativity in the kitchen. Variety is the spice of life and not being tempted to succumb to the same old thing time and time again is most appreciated. We've already determined our next visit and what we'll be ordering differently than the last (but we have to go soon before the menu changes again). Dine early, dine often. Mikette does not disappoint. Bravo!
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.
Crab Cakes, Salmon Pate, Kale Caesar Salad, and an Avocado Toast.....ALL AMAZING!!!!
We've been wanting to go for a while, and finally went for my wife's birthday. Nice, cosy place, great food, great service. We will definitely go again.
very good, good prices, good quality, good service
Very nice ambience and food was very, very good. We were here for Restaurant "bargain" but will definitely come again.
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.
Mikette is great! We went for restaurant week after not going for a while and it was fantastic
Wonderful! The service was excellent and the wood was delicious. Mikette is becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor.
Food is excellent and portions are not too big. Wine list is good. Waitstaff is very friendly. There was a very long wait time to receive our orders and it is just too loud to have a conversation or to relax.
great food as always thank you! would recommend highly
Loved everything about this place! Ambiance, food, drinks. It's very well conceived and executed. I can't think of anything that could have made our experience better. Highly recommended.
Staff were welcoming, friendly, unobtrusive, attentive yet not hovering. The food was heavenly. Everything was perfectly done. Will definitely be going back again and again.
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!
Attentive service without hovering. The mushroom hash was unlike any hash I have eaten, but very good.
Excellent food! The atmosphere is romantic, but also not over done so something casual would feel fine too.
this dinner experience was on new years eve at 7:30 sat on a long bench against a wall with other diners and unable to converse without raising our voices. Menu was minimal (not even a filet)! Food was OK. Been there before for cocktails and appetizers and that would be our choice again.
Casual southern French dining, with a flair for seafood.
It was been difficult to find a restaurant that serves French cuisine in Ann Arbor for some time. Mikette's will now take that place--hands down. Although--this is definitely NOT OLD style heavy French cuisine but represents the best of French cuisine mixed with seasonal, fresh, farm to table world cuisine. Plates were served tapas style, so that you could taste a wide range of fabulously prepared fresh vegetables, wild mushrooms, etc. The portions were large enough (even on the appetizers) to share with at least one other person or take home half of it. Service was excellent, recommended wines were paired perfectly, and the place has a very friendly vibe. It's not overly pretentious so you could go there in your jeans and still be comfortable. But the food is the big winner here!
We had Sheila as a server and she is remarkable. Very knowledgeable about the menu, thoughtful and also terribly funny. (a bonus) We will definitely come again!
Great! We love the service, food and vibe!!
I love rhis restaurant. The food is delicious and service top notch.
We were disappointed to learn that Happy Hour is available only in the bar area. (First come first serve) If you have a reservation you will not be included in their Happy Hour.
The music is not consistent with French cuisine. Duck confit and Motown just don’t go together.
