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!

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!

It was a lovely dining experience. Unfortunately we were sat next to a table with three screaming infants which killed the ambiance. Service was good, not as attentive as i would expect from a fine dining establishment.

It boils down to that this place does a pretty good presentation of some actually ordinary food, and the result is passable. For us tonight, the halibut was too salty, the pot pie was good and the burger was really just another burger on a brioche. The atmosphere is good, and some seats are cozy, so it can be a nice place to spend a couple of hours. It is fairly unpretentious. We will go back and I'd recommend trying it out, but I'd also recommend reining in your expectations.

I am a repeat customer, and there’s a reason for that: the creative and accessible menu, the friendly waitstaff, and wonderful bar menu, happy hour menu, and last but bit least THE SANGRIA! I was there most recently for my birthday with family. Everyone found something tasty to eat, from the foodie adventurists, to the picky millennials. Thank you!

This was our second visit and it was definitely better than the first. The noise level seems to be a bit lower-we could actually talk to one another. The food was a bit above good quality bistro food. We did agree that things were too salty but overall we were pleased and will return.

We are NOT returning to Mikette.........for several reasons.........i think they have raised their prices unjustifiably and lowered their standards...........the fried chicken that i used to love is now Overcoated with stuff and several of our pieces were undercooked under all that excess coating.......they no longer serve the bread that was so good and it's So Loud that it's quite difficult to have a conversation in a normal range.......we both had indigestion half of the night........so why should we pay a lot of money for a not very pleasant experience?? I can't come up with any sort of reason either. (I should add that the service was excellent)

Our meal was a series of small plates, other than the beef bourguignon. that dish is excellent, and the others were very good to good. The chocolate mousse dessert was excellent. I was disappointed in the coffee which was supposed to be hot but ended up luke warm. (tasted great, though). I had the beet salad which would have been better with more cheese and greens; the meatballs, which were very good; the carrots, which were blah; ham croquettes, which were good. The ambiance is very active and noisy.

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.

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.
