My wife and I dine several times a year at SL and usually on New Year's eve, Understandably News Years Eve is busy. For 7:30 reservation, arrived at 7:30, we were seated at 7:50. Reception was less than gracious.. "You are going to have to wait!" . Once seated, drinks took quit awhile, ordered appetizer and it arrived in good... More

I don't take the opportunity to eat here as often as I like. But each time that I have the food and service has always been great.

I do not know what is happening at Sweet Lorraine's. This used to be our "go to" restaurant. The last 3 times have been very mediocre both in Southfield and Livonia. We went tonight and I had my usual, the Traverse City Chicken pasta. I think there were 4 cherries, very little chicken and one piece of spinach with overcooked... More

Sweet Lorraine's is a great place for lunch or dinner, especially for people who have dietary restrictions. The menu is very veggie friendly, has gluten free items, interesting combinations and always presented in an attractive manner. Waitstaff knowledgeable and friendly. In the many years that I have eaten there, I have never been disappointed in a meal.

While I've always been a fan of this restaurant in the past, based on last night's visit, I wouldn't return. The entree was not as described (it was basically an expensive big plate of cheap pasta), and the chicken was dried out & stringy. Very disappointing. The bread was the highlight of the meal.

One of my favorite restaurants, I have eaten at Sweet Lorraine since 1997 and will continue. The food is great and the live entertainment is wonderful (selective days). While you are eating your meal the recorded music is playing from Southern music to "Old Blue Eyes"! You can always find a discount coupon for Sweet Lorraine!

Went out to lunch today with my friend . It had been several years since i had been here last. Food was good, but not excellent. I had pecan chicken and it was good, however the chicken was not tender and breading was falling off the chicken. Mixed rice was very good and the some of the fresh carrots were... More

Passed by this place countless times and finally ate there today and am sorry we haven't been here before! Great menu with lots of variety, great decor, and prices are reasonable. We will return!

On the recommendation of a co-worker, we stopped in for dinner after a long day. We were seated immediately, water arrived within a minute or two and our waiter was ready to answer questions and take our order shortly thereafter. I wish I had gotten our server's name, he was completely awesome! Knowledgeable about the wine, he assisted in selecting... More
