First time there and VERY impressed! Had this amazing feature drink (muddled strawberries and basil with vodka, lemonade and sprite), a yummy goat cheese, caramelized onion, prosciutto and arugula flat bread appetizer, and a delicious black lentil salad with halloumi cheese and special tomatoes. All so good! Will have to go back for the dessert!

“Traditionally delicious!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I was treated to lunch in honor of my recent birthday at this lovely restaurant, decorated so distinctively in black & white stripes! My choice of fish & chips was almost as good as London, England & the lobster BLT enjoyed by my friend looked yummy as well! The Sanders hot fudge cream puff completed an absolutely heavenly meal! I plan to bring my hubby here to dine on the outdoor patio ... Brava chef Mary!

“Great Menu, Great Food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I stumbled upon this place online while looking for new restaurants in the area to try. I'm so glad I convinced my BF to go there with me this past winter. The restaurant is small but has a cozy atmosphere and always smells amazing. We sat on the patio (yes, in the winter) but it was pretty warm. They have such an eclectic menu with several vegetarian entrees which is a must-have for me. We have been back 2 or 3 times since then. Every time the food is good. My BF did try a burger one time which he said was just fair, but he loved the tacos he got the first time and the chili. The sweet potato burrito is awesome, as well as the butternut squash ravioli. The side salads are good but nothing super special, but I usually get one. It's a great restaurant for meat eaters and vegetarians alike!

I had dinner at this restaurant and it was nice, casual, decent selection of wines. Food was good, I sat at the bar, and the bartender was very pleasant. I would visit again, and recommend..

“Great Local Eatery in Mall”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Dont be fooled by the location. Definitely add this restaurant to your dining plan when in Novi. It is focused on providing a local food experience with Michigan foods and beer. It does a great job. I recommend the pretzel and pub cheese bar bite, the smoked trout. I had the ribs for entree (which were a daily special).
