Description: Garage... is a dining experience on Main Street at the corner of Wing Street in historic downtown Northville, Michigan. The menu is as classic as the circa 1940 service station that is home to Garage.Respectful of the past and stylish by today's trends, the restaurant, the bar and outdoor cafe are visually exciting with great views of the town. A separate "To Go" counter has been created for easy access.An important feature of Garage is the Banquet Room, an 80 seat private room which has a view of an impeccably restored 1930 Ford Model A car that creates part of the overall banquet experience.

We had to wait about a half hour for our table, got to enjoy the bar area and all the memorabilia. Our dinner was tremendous, served hot and stayed hot. Nice portions, the Lasagna was very tasty, my wife could eat about half of it. The Whitefish was also very, very good. Salads and sides are extra but they are well worth it, Caesar and House salad, brussel sprouts, just great. We will be back.

Won't be back. We will not drive to Northville if they do not take reservations for parties less than 6. Went there party of 5 and were told 2 hours to wait. Well, that left us with nowhere to go and wait till 9:30pm so will never venture there again. Looked like a nice place though, but I am not the type to stand in the doorway for 2 hours. Everything was closed around there and it was snowing outside so we left and drove to Ann Arbor and had a wonderful meal. Take reservations and then we would try again if not I feel you will only service large parties or people that live close by.

First visit here two nights ago with 8 people. As you can imagine we had to wait awhile to get seating for this number. Love the outside of this place. We used to shop here when it was the Gardenviews outdoor shop. Really like the way they kept the interior multi level design. Decorated very nicely inside. Amy was our server and she did a great job explaining the specials and different menu items. it was very busy at 8 pm and the noise level was pretty loud but we sat up against a inside wall so the noise did not stop our party from hearing each other. The menu does not appear to be to large for the kitchen to handle which is a plus in my book. Good selection of appetizers. Pretzel sticks with trio of mustards was very good. Seafood chowder was also very tasty and smelled fantastic. With regards to entrees I agree with bits from each of the other reviews to date. All the entrees are 17 to 27 dollars. I had the perch dinner at $21. Nice portion but came out on warm side. Still think it could be 3 or 4 bucks cheaper. 4 pizzas were ordered and all but 1 were done perfectly. 4th pizza was a little doughy. 1 burger was ordered and it came out as ordered and was said to be just great. Had enough to take home but that was $11. Seafood pasta had a lot of pasta but not enough seafood for the price. Manager was very visible and talking to patrons. The price points here will keep this from being a regular haunt . We will give it a couple of months and go back. I want to try some of the appetizers and the kale salad. Still worth at least one visit in 2013.

Born out of an old gas station, this place was a surprise and delight. It has some design cues from an old gas station without looking dirty, rustic or tacky. It is a welcome sight to have a good non-chain restaurant in the area. The whitefish was outstanding! We can not wait to go back.
