My family members were there to celebrate my birthday. Although the dining room was a little noisy and cramped, we had a wonderful evening. Drinks were good and generous and our server was great fun. Our meals were sooooo delicious. The tomato tarts are to die for. We closed the place and were so happy to be there!!!

We do not live in the area. We were here 3 years ago and decided to return especially to this one restaurant on the peninsula. The cuisine and chef are excellent. We would like to see a more diverse menu with some vegetarian entrees.

We attended a 5 Course Bordeaux French Gourmet dinner and it was outstanding. There have been times we’ve been there that the noise level was high but never to the point where it’s annoying. The meals and service are always outstanding. I think those two go hand in hand in any restaurant. One negative can influence the patrons opinion of the meal

Great meal and service. Food was excellent. We enjoyed having the Chef stop by our table to visit and talk about food and wine. If you are in the area be sure to visit this restaurant.

The food was nothing short of spectacular! Fantastic service from a very personable and knowledgeable staff. We dined on the duck two ways and pork tenderloin, both of which were outstanding in texture, flavor, and cooked perfectly to maximize the flavor of each dish. At the close of our meal, the chef/owner came out and conversed with us about the meal, what brought us there, and anything else we wanted to talk about-very cool and an amazing touch to a fantastic dining experience. Highly recommend!

The food was good but it does not mirror the price. We were also billed $30 over what we ordered - we didn’t notice until the next day. It was a good date but I don’t think I need to visit again.

Consistently an outstanding local gem. It is famous for country French cuisine in N. Michigan. The word is out. It is indeed fit for foodies.

La Bécasse never disappoints. The food is invariably exquisite -- on Saturday they once again had the Noisettes de Veau, which is not always on the menu, but definitely worth ordering when it is! And the Tarte Tatin is the best I've had anywhere in the world, including many places in France.

LaBesasse was fabulous as always. The menu is always diverse and there are no bad choices. It is a true gem in northern Michigan. Being locally owned by the chef it is a truest unique dining experience with the owner’s pride and attention behind every detail.

We go there two to three times a season. The waitstaff was new and wasn't as good as usual. However, he was very nice and tried very hard. He will get much better with time. This is really a neat place to go and we love it.

Michelle, our server, was amazing and very attentive. The curried vegetables were delicious. We would definitely order that entree again. We would suggest maybe a second vegetarian option for the menu. Lovely evening overall.

La Becasse is one of our favorite restaurants. We drove 3 hours to dine there for our anniversary this year, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant sits in the beautiful north woods of the Leelanau Penninsula across the street from Glen Lake.

It was "Restaurant Week" in the area. So, my wife and I both ordered dinners from the Restaurant Week special menu. We both had the onion soup which was fantastic. I had the beef burgundy as my main course, and my wife had a pork entree, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The special came with three samplings of their dessert menu which included chocolate mousse, crème brûlée, and a pastry with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

I believe the restaurant is in what was once a house. It is relatively small, but has a great "French" ambiance. The wine list is outstanding. The server was pleasant, but not as polished as one might expect in a restaurant of this quality.

This was our second time dining at La Becasse, and we plan to make the trip to dine there at least an annual event.
