Very small and cozy with truly warm service. Nice wine list and has many MI wines…could use a few more white options…Oregon or Washington State?? Im sure the tasting menu is grand if you up for that. We split an appetizer with duck and fiddlehead ferns that were cooked perfectly. We had entrees of whitefish…delicate and perfectly seasoned and a steak that was good. Reservations would be necessary.

We looked forward to dining at Cooks House. We came away disappointed. The service was slow from the wait staff. The sommelier was stuffy. The pork belly was not good (and we love pork belly). We both ordered it and it was tough. The meal was not inexpensive and we both felt the value was lacking. We won't be going back.

We've eaten here in the past two years and again last night. We had the 7 course tastingThe food is well Prepared and presented. If you are use to high quality farm to table and Michelin starred restaurants you will not want to miss this superb place. It is very reasonable as well, considering the quality and attention to detail with food prep. I've tried the other restaurants in TC, this is the best hands down. The others don't come close, unless you are looking for mediocracy.

It seems as though they thought they could fix their food by adding too much oil, butter, or sauce to everything. The parfait dessert was frozen solid meaning they made it days ago and froze it or bought it frozen. Either way it was inedible. Overpriced and underwhelmed.
