Nice little bistro on the north side of Ann Arbor. A decent French take on most menu items. Shared a few appetizers such as escargot, croquettes, and gougere. Our entrees were the chicken and beef stew. My wife and I enjoyed our apps more than the entrees. Decent pricing, free parking. Not a bad deal
Excellent experience overall. High quality food, full service bar and very knowledgeable waitstaff.
Great food (we had the salmon), Super Great service, and a funky French atmosphere.
Had five appetizers and all were delicious. Amazing desserts. Love the decorations and charm. Phenomenal service!!
Cool spot. Definitely worth checking out.
I have been to Mikette for lunch and dinner many times and have never been disappointed. The food choices are very tasty and creative, mostly small plates that are good for sharing. Their drinks are also very unusual. And the service is always superb!
Came out slowly, but fantastic meal! One of the best I’ve had in Ann Arbor.
Out of several of the entrees. Octopus appetizer came with two tiny pieces of octopus. The rest was potatoes. The server gave us a second serving at no charge. The entrees we did have were ordinary. Nothing special. Probably won’t come back.
We love Mikette. Have been several times. We brought out of town guests. He is a foodie and writes a food column for a paper in Dayton, OH. Also is a big wine geek and they were both very impressed. One minor problem is that we ordered the chocolate mouse for dessert and it took quite a while to get it. A couple of folks stropped by to tell us "it was coming" and of course, eventually it did. That was a bit odd given how quickly everything else arrived. Other than that, it was great!
Mikette is always a great choice! In a “foody” town, it stand out as one of the best.
Everything we ordered was much too salty. Had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for some time. It was just ok, it is out of the way and wouldn’t make the trip again.
We enjoyed a late Easter brunch at Mikette. We had a lovely meal, exceptional wine and outstanding service. You must try the Gougere (we split one) steaming hot out of the oven and compliments of the management. Thank you! These are usually only served at dinner so it was a special treat to enjoy one with our mid-afternoon meal. The green salad with herb de Provence vinaigrette was perfect as were the mussels and French dip with fries. Our server and the manager made sure we were well taken care of.
We'll be back!!
Food was quite good; quasi European vibe/ambiance/decor; good service; rather active physically; All in all, pretty much what I expect from a decent restaurant.
We go to Mikette about 2 to 3 times per month. we like it because we live on NE side of Ann Arbor so 2 minute drive. This guy knows how to run a restaurant. His other two restaurants downtown are also very good. Service is always good and they always have enough help. Only complaint with some dishes from Mikette is a bit on the salty side (eggplant side dish specifically). The salmon here is simple but excellent. Otherwise my wife and I always have a good experience.
My reservation included a request for a table easily accessed by a wheelchair and the Mikette staff went above and beyond accommodating us. The manager opened the door and assisted us to our table when we arrived and made sure we were comfortable. The food was excellent, as usual, and served impeccably by Manuel. Having lunch at Mikette is like visiting a bistro in France. We love going there and truly appreciate their attention to our special needs that day.
It's been a while since I've frequented Mikette...several months? I was a bit disappointed to see that the menu had changed slightly. The Beef Wellington that I was so looking forward to was no longer on the menu. My friend thought they used to have a delicious roast chicken, but that was also not on the menu. Our meal overall was good. The fries were disappointing as they were a bit soggy and not quite the "pomme frites" we were used to. The service was excellent and our waiter was very patient with us as we were there for a long time. Onanother note, the drinks were excellent!
This was a busy, popular spot on the north side with fusion/French fare. The service was top-notch all the way through the meal. Nice atmosphere and good drinks. The food was good, but not the best in Ann Arbor. For onion soup, I've had much better gruyere at The Earle and elsewhere - cheese that is more pungent, dry, and flavorful. It seemed the gruyere at Mikette was salty, didn't have much flavor, and was more rubbery than usual for gruyere. Otherwise, the lobster bisque was excellent, the pommes frites were tasty, and the lamb meatballs were alone worth the visit. My one suggestion - tone down the salt. Ann Arborites like to taste their food. :)
I love the other two restaurants owned by this owner- Mani and Isalitas are amazing. We ordered tuna burgers and were disappointed. The rest of the food may be great but don’t order that. The ambiance and decor is awesome and service staff was great. I will give It another shot
I've been to Mikette's several times since moving to Ann Arbor - it's generally a place I like to take guests from out-of-town. The menu is interesting and changes periodically, the food is predictably good, good energy to the establishment. It's a fun dining experience. Paying for bread and butter, okay I get it, a few other places do it so I can accept that. But, the one thing I noticed this last time that put me off was a separate charge for ($1.00) ice in our drinks - really? Our dinner was over $120 for two. Hide it in the overall price of the drink, but a separate line-item? Come on Mikette...
Although we have been frequent visitors to Mikette since opening, our last two meals were a disappointment. On March 20th, I ordered my go to burger; the Le Mac. The chef must have being texting while adding the seasoning, as what should have been a sprinkle was a pour. The burger was impossible to eat given the over whelming excess of seasoning. On March 24th, we arrived at 5:45 PM and out party of four were seated promptly. The restaurant was not busy. When our meals finally arrived shortly after 7 PM (after requesting where our meals were) everything was under cooked. The ladies had ordered the salmon and it arrived very rare and they ate the only portions that were cooked around the edges. My friend ordered the chicken "Provencal" that turned out to show blood at the bones. My "hanger steak frites", ordered medium rare, was RAW except for the char on the outside. It was raw, cold inside and not edible. I return 90% of the steak back to the kitchen. The "frites" were acceptable. A complaint to the staff yielded comps for our cocktails, but not a reorder or my requested visit by the chef. What has happened to Mikette? What has been reliable has become a disappointment.
My husband and I had dinner there for our 35th anniversary. We shared a number of small dishes and a kale salad and would have any of them again.
Great first visit to this restaurant. The menu choices looked great, and our food was great too. We tried a few cocktails and were impressed there too. Our server Jennifer couldn’t have been more helpful! Definitely hearing back.
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.
