Our regionally acclaimed chefs artfully wed traditional French-style cooking with new and adventurous flavors that create meals you’ll never be in a hurry to finish. All of the ingredients are carefully selected for how they enhance the seasonal recipes and most come from regional sources to ensure their freshness. Each plate will arrive at your table as a work of art.


You’ll find our staff is attentive, but not obtrusive. So if you’re not sure of what to order, ask. Want advice on pairing your food choice with the right wine, craft beer or spirits? We can assist. Wine Spectator has honored us with its coveted award of excellence for offering “one of the best restaurant wine lists in the world.” In addition to pouring domestic and international favorites, we proudly feature vintages from our fine nearby wineries, craft breweries and distilleries. And at the end of your meal, you will find immense pleasure in our pastry chef’s passion for creating beautiful, sweet confections.


While you are with us, we encourage you to take your time. Wear what is comfortable for the occasion. We love being part of your celebrations, your romantic getaways or business exchanges. You will find it easy to converse in our beautiful dining room as well as on our open-air patio. Both seatings offer a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan from our bluff vantage and come evening, the sunsets are spectacular all four seasons.


All of us at the Bistro hope you will long for your next visit. That you will dine with us often. And that each time you come, you will say we gave you even greater epicurean happiness.
