La Becasse MI Ratings and Reviews

Our table had the duck, which we agreed was the best we'd ever had. The veal noisettes were also incredibly tender and flavorful. Both dishes were served with vegetables including a portion of thinly sliced & stacked potato that made good use of butter and cream. Desserts shared were a delicate pear/almond tart and chocolate creme brûlée. The quality of the French cuisine at this restaurant ensures a return visit.
BTW our server was excellent!

La Becasse never disappoints! This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants. The menu is always diverse. Fresh, farm to table. Flavors are layered often with a pleasing element of surprise. The building and environment is such that transports you to the south of France somewhere. Worth the drive!

La Becasse is a delightful dinning destination. They have an extensive wine list from from very reasonable to break the bank. We enjoyed a seasonal special red and yellow beet Gespacio. the escargot was delightful but not extra ordinary. Make your plans early as it is a deservedly popular spot.

We had the lamb and it was delicious. However, we were disappointed that to change potato selections there was an up charge of $3.50 per person. Never had a restaurant charge to swap potato choices.
Every time we go here there are charges for items that use to come with dinner, charges for extra sauce etc.

No air-conditioning, due to a power failure, we were told, but other former diners told us the a/c had been out for quite a while. Service was unusually slow, apparently because of a swamped and solitary bartender. Food was swell.

The food was delicious as usual. On past visits, the service has been outstanding. Unfortunately, it wasn't up to par this time. Don't let that keep you away, though. This can happen during the summer in a tourist destination. The food makes up for the service.

This is a wonderful restaurant with fantastic food for the Glenlake area...way above all other restaurants in the area. I used Opentable to reserve our table, but I am thinking I need to be able to navigate the site better. I would have made special requests such as outside dining (weather permitting) or not in middle of room to avoid noise level and claustrophic issues. Fortunately for us, out table was perfect, our server was extremely knowledgeable and personable, and the food surpassed any we had had in our two weeks in the Glenlake area...a four star rating. One last thought...having been there several times before, I remember upon being seated, the sever asking if there were any allergy/dietary concerns or if we were vegetarian. This did not happen this time; so, when the special treat came for us, I needed to tell the server that I was vegetarian and did not eat bacon (a little embarrassing)...but the up side was he brought me another one that worked and was very tasty. This might be a question for the servers to ask each time diners are seated...important in today's times.

We ate outside on the patio which was situated next to the woods. Very nice atmosphere and service was excellent. We especially enjoyed the appetizers and desert. It's pricey but the lava cake wrapped in phyllo with ice cream was to die for. We went back the following day just for more desert.

This classic French country inn gets everything right. Every selection is inventive, fresh, and delicious. Virtually everything that can be is sourced locally and prepared and presented in a way that lets each ingredient shine through. Service is impeccable. We thought the prices were very reasonable when compared with other area restaurants that fall short of La Becasse's excellence. It was worth the 90 minute drive from Gaylord. but we knew it would be as we had dined there when visiting the Leelanau two years ago.

Simply incomparable. A small French country cottage-like setting with a genuine French chef of immense talent. Everything is flawless and delicious. Wonderful staff with no need to be pretentious, since the food speaks for itself. A gem.

This is a favorite place of ours when on vacation in northern Michigan. The food and service are excellent. Tip: share a dessert as they are large even by American standards. It's pricey as well, but such a lovely place for a special event. The French onion soup is delicious - not overpowered by salt like many are. The cheese plate is good for two people, not more. The butter is amazing, as is the bread! I would like to see a few more vegetarian options however.

Excellent service and extremely nice waiter. 103 Wellington-- made sure our every need was met-- although u were out of Ginger Beer for my anticipated Moscow Mule. I however survived, with another cocktail. Rosoto outstanding!!! I was entertaining friends from Florida who had never been further north thanEast Lansing and Glen Lake is absolutely my favorite spot. It also was their 45tj wedding anniversary that day!!! No complaints

Many visits over the years. Everything was superb, spot on from salads to desserts. Great wine list. I had the veal cooked to perfection; all the dishes were beautifully presented. The warm chocolate cake is beyond description and much different than most.
