Good restaurant

Good restaurant. Good food, nice presentation, very good service. But nothing too special for a money you have to spend there.

Expensive, fancy but food is ordinary. You can have same food in a chain restaurant for much less. They also make the menu bundled so you need to have a complete course and you get to know it after they serve the salad saying it is "included". Trap

Pros: 1. The service is outstanding and attentive to customers. 2. The setting of the restaurant is very good. Cons: 1. The full course dinner menu is a little too heavy. Especially people who are on diet. 2. The dishes varied in quality. The seafood dishes were good. The duck is not good at ll. I was a little disappointed.... More

Very unique concept. Please do make reservations. They take for 5.30 and then for 7.30 pm. Not a place for a hurried meal. Go there to enjoy the food and the ambience. . The appetizer and dessert cart are great. Copper Cataplana of Maine Lobster Tail, Littleneck Clams, Pt. Judith Calamari, Chorizo Sausage, San Marzano Tomatoes and Portuguese Pepper Sauce... More

I know the Lark has a great reputation and my visit only adds to it. The restaurant is expensive by Metro Detroit standards, but it is worth the time and price one pays to dine there. I love the atmosphere, especially if you get a window seat for two. The entire meal was excellent . The appetizers etc. were served... More

Till my recent visit, I last went to the Lark fifteen years ago - when I left Michigan. Then I thought it designed for a tacky Birmingham/Bloomfield Hills and to an extent Grosse Pointe crowd. The food was mediocre; our bill for three probably more than 300.00. Pricey, but expected. I returned recently and stunningly saw a largely unchanged menu... More

I've been going to The Lark for over 20 years. It's expensive, so we only go every couple years. This last couple visits were disappointing and I don't think we will be back. The food was good, but not good enough to justify the price. I have some food restrictions and cannot eat anything from the trolley cart. I called... More

The Lark is an incredible restaurant. I don't know how they manage to be so exquisite and yet so unpretentious. It's been our "go to" occasion restaurant for over 20 years. Service, food, ambiance; they have it all. We are not "rich people" yet the servers, managers, bar staff etc. are always so gracious and welcoming. Highly recommend.

The lark is an experience. You can tour the herb garden and enjoy excellent food and service. It is pricey but you won't leave hungry.
