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!

Delicious as always. The food is always perfect, and it has been our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately they are moving to the “small plates” or tapas trend, which is frankly is not how we like to dine, particularly with friends as you never know how much to order and then I’ll is always higher than if you just got entrees.
Hopefully they will change back so we can revisit it.

Frequent diners at sister restaurants, Mani Osteria and Isalita, this was our first time to Mikette. For dinner, we shared several tapas items, all of which met or exceeded expectations, but the standout was the luscious pissaladiere tarte. Friendly, laid back atmosphere. Not sure where I read "business casual," but not true.

The food was average. We loved the gnocchi, we did not like the roast carrots at all. So bland and some undercooked. The octopus was good but the octopus to potato ratio was disappointing. We got mostly potato. The duck dumplings were average.

Most disappointing of all was our service. After we placed our order we did not see our server for A LONG time. We sat with empty drinks for quite awhile. Eventually the hostess came around and ended up taking our orders for another drink. I had heard great things about this restaurant but I was underwhelmed

The focus of the menu has changed since that last time we were here. Now offers more tapas than entrees. Calamari starter was tasty and the mussels were very good. Sediment in my wine was off putting but didn't seem to concern the waitress. Outside seating was lovely on a pleasant summer evening.

Thursday at 8 PM—Double date w old friends—Hostess was friendly and we were seated promptly. The table next to us was boisterous and since there isn’t anything structurally to dampen the noise it was hard to hear well enough for conversation until they left. Waitress was friendly and reasonably attentive for how busy it was.

Food came out accurately and quickly. The roasted branzino was flavorful and moist, octopus was tasty and tender. While some of the raw oysters we got were perfect and had plenty of liquor and the different mignonette sauces were interesting and delicious, a few of the oysters we got seemed as if they might’ve gotten inadvertently skewered by the shucking knife, and the one I got for my oyster shooter was almost in 2 pieces while still being partially attached to the bottom shell...not sure that I will get the oysters again, although the shooter was imaginative with slivers of jalapeño. Duck confit was a bit salty for my taste and a bit dry around the edges but hubby ate it all. Dinner companions ate up all their food too (crab dip w thin beautifully toasted crostini, lobster salad, and some kind of burger); they commented that the lobster salad was a bit salty but overall they enjoyed the food and would come back (they hadn’t been to Mikette before).

Overall—a fun place w friendly staff and interesting menu and flavors. Most of the food was well presented and tasted great, some was a bit on the salty side but we ate all of it. Not sure the person shucking oysters tonight had enough experience to do it correctly. Branzino was excellent.

Nice dinner. Lots of interesting choices. Food was great with the exception of one mussel that shouldn’t have made it onto the plate. But don’t fault the restaurant because it did open on its own. The beets were the best we’ve ever had.

Food is creative but not obscure. Very tasty and many dishes good to share. The fondu is just great. Moroccan meatballs perfect. All the tapas are great. Almost best to order these, share, and forget the dinner items. Nice beer tape rotation. Can’t go wrong

Great menu. Beet salad and avacado toast with crab was excellent as were the mashed potatoes and gravy. French dip was too salty however and would be better if on a more hearty or crusty bread instead of the bun.

A bit pricey however having said that, the escargot was well done, the duck pot stickers were outstanding, salad was good. My beef bourguignon was excellent, deep rich flavor with tender meat and perfectly cooked vegetables. The french onion fondue was outstanding, a dish I enjoyed sharing with the crew. The steak was perfect.
Our waiter did an excellent job, had no problem leaving him a tip, he earned it.

Returning to find a better restaurant since its early days. The stripmall location remains a negative, but, once inside, the experience is very good. Excellent, friendly service. Reasonable wine list and a food menu with multiple small and regular plates. Went there for the small plates, which offer a good range of tastes and appropriate portions. Several dishes were a little salty to our liking, perhaps reflecting the heat of S Europe, but less A/C'd Michigan. All dishes arrived at once, which is not really the tapas experience. The atmosphere inside is great and seating comfortable, so will definitely return again.

Service was a little spotty -- slow with drinks and appetizers, quicker with entrees. Would have preferred a more consistent service. The food, as always, was very good -- country French with brief hints of Asian cuisine. There are daily specials that augment the standard menu and offer some welcome variety. For this visit (I've been a few times before) I made reservations online. There was huge gap of availability after 6 p.m. so I went with the available time, which is a little on the early side. While dining, I couldn't help but notice empty tables, meaning I could have been accommodated a little later in the evening.

I love Mikette for the most part. I had the avocado toast with crabmeat, which was very good. Last time I was there, however, I ordered the calamari salad which wasn't good -- way too greasy and not good. I like the outdoor covered seating, and always recommend you to my friends.
