About Lucy & the Wolf

Lucy & the Wolf is a new restaurant on the corner of Main Street and Center in the historic district town of Northville and its iconic name-Lucy & the Wolf-captures the spirit of fun and imagination that infuses the food, drinks and atmosphere.

The restaurant's interior is completely refurbished, with reclaimed wood and brick walls and a wrap-around zinc bar. And while the simple and sleek look is a draw, it's all about the food.

The food and drinks have an old world charm with a new world twist. There is a definite Spanish flair to many of the dishes.

The intimate 60-seat restaurant is ideal for casual dining and drinks, where plates can be shared and friends found at the bar. From aged classic cocktails to a grilled fruit sangria, as well as craft beer and a well-chosen wine list-it's a well thought out and carefully orchestrated bar.

Food and drinks were delicious and the booths were super cozy. We loved every dish we ordered! I think our waiter was a little shocked at how much we ate. We left nothing on the plates. Service was just right. I would definitely go back!

Terrific food, service and ambience. Love the small plates to share. Great way to try many different flavours and treats. Good wine and bar selections. If you haven’t tried it, we recommend you do! Make reservations to ensure a table!

The food is always different and very good here. No matter how often you come you have a different meal each time. It was a bit on the cold side because the door kept opening and closing into the restaurant. I think they tried helping this by turning the heat on a little higher which would pop on from time to time. Definitely will go back.

This was our third or fourth time here, and definitely THE BEST! Everything was superb. Definitely recommend the BBQ pork skillet and the shrimp. What great flavor profiles. And the roasted beets and cauliflower both ROCK. Will be back soon . . . and will bring nn some friends along too.

My husband and I decided to try this place for a fun date however we were met with disappointment. As we walked in no one addressed us. As we awkwardly stood waiting to be seated, the bartenders looked directly at us and continued to walk away. We clearly did not look like the other people in the restaurant and felt very uncomfortable as customers started at us waiting by the door (directly in front of the bar). We decided to leave and go somewhere else that was more diverse and friendly. When I called the manager on duty I was given a insincere “ oh my god, I didn’t even see you” and “ok have a better night”.

We took some friends from out of town here for a couples dinner. Some of the food was quite good- the goat cheese appetizer was particularly good. However, the salami on the charcuterie platter was grey at the edges and very unappetizing. The pork tacos were so salty they were not enjoyable. Also, there is a very limited drink menu particularly for after dinner drinks.

Disappointed.

I was seated wedged next to a large, black piece of plywood and my guest was seated in walking traffic path of the kitchen and other patrons. We brought this to the attention of the server as there was an open booth. The server was grossly disrespectful and unprofessional. Informed me that could not be done and “everyone had a reservation that night.”

We definitely will not be going back.

Some of the food was good. some of the food was microscopic.
the shredded pork, potatoes, and tacos were good. The biscuits, and tomatoes and cheese not so good and the same for the broccoli which was bland. I would go again, since the things they did well they did really well.

We started a girls night out at Lucy and the Wolf. The cocktails were good, nothing too fancy, good pours, with flavor. We ordered a variety of dishes to taste... lamb meatballs were full of flavor and the sauce was delish. The goat cheese app was our favorite, the sundries tomatoes made the dish. The crab dip had a nice Smokey flavor to it. The deviled eggs were a little disappointing. The prosciutto was nice but the egg filling had very little flavor. The mini donuts were sweet, crunchy on the outside and super warm and gooey in the middle. We also gave a run at the Apple bread putting which was excellent.

Celebrated a special occasion here. Lucy & the wolf was great, but it was packed. Took us 20 minutes to get to our reserved table, which was attached to the bar, and not quite as intimate as on of the booths we were hoping to get. The food was excellent though, and the drinks felt like a good deal.. They paced tapas for us and we shared excellent flavors throughout the night. The goat cheese was our favorite.

First time to Lucy and the Wolf and what a delightful find! Everything is made fresh (you can watch the chef prepare as the restaurant is not very large); nothing pre-prepared that rolled off the back of some big food service truck. We had the fish tacos and cubano. Good sized portions for lunch that I didn't think we could finish (but, yes we did!). Cute little town with lots of shops too. Make an afternoon or evening of it!

Made a last minute reservation on a Saturday at the dinner rush hour. Called to let them know we would be late and make sure that wasn't an issue, they were really accommodating but warned us they had a reservation at 7 so as long as we could be out by 7 it should be ok. We ended up getting there at 6 so I was worried we might not get out in time. They were SUPER fast and all of the food was amazing! Our server was really nice and the restaurant even called us 2 minutes after we left to tell us we left our car keys on the table. What a great place!

My husband and I went for happy hour on a Friday at 5 p.m. which was a perfect time to go - not too busy. We grabbed a table by the window. The happy hour plate options weren't that great, but you get $2 off draft beers and cocktails and 1/2 off any bottled/canned beers. We had the charcuterie board (meh, not very impressive) and the bratwurst-like plate (very good, with a purple dijon mustard and roasted peppers). We also had the shrimp tacos (YUM) and the lamb meatballs. Interesting/varied cocktails. Left full/content, and perfect location in downtown Northville, so you can walk around after. Tables are small, but we made due. Server was very nice, but felt bad I kept asking him questions about the drinks and he finally told me he wasn't 21 yet. Poor kid. He took good care of us.

Had several items off of the small plates section of the menu, all of which were awful. Want a bowl full of cheap breadsticks with cold bar cheese dip that appears to be from a can? Want some mushy, apparently microwaved broccoli? How about some burnt roasted potatoes over some marinara sauce with a fat squeeze of plain mayo splattered across them? Then this is definitely the place for you!

This place is an utter disappointment.
