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.

The potatas bravas, fish tacos, and pinchos murunos were all fantastic. Finishing the meal off with the donuts was a perfect ending as well.

I would highly recommend this restaurant, it was different and it was great to try new dishes that most restaurants do not have. Very creative with tapas.
I will be going back again!!

We were sat at the last table at the end away from everyone else for some reason even though there were several empty tables we walked past.

Anyway the food was disappointing. One of the dishes was burnt, but the server was nice to show the cooks so they could see it and she took it off the bill. Had a few more dishes that did not taste that good.

Also the prices and menu options on the web site did not match the menu, which made it difficult to plan ahead and were higher.

The food was fabulous. The ambiance was great. The last time I went, the waitress I had was better. This waitress seemed disengaged. She didn't seem interested in sharing much about the menu. We had to ask for recommendations. But she did keep my wine glass full.

Delicious and creative dishes, masterfully crafted. We love the small plate experience. The cauliflower salad, deviled eggs and pork skillet are 3 of our favorites. Plus, Ryan is an AWESOME server.

Loved this small plates restaurant. Starting with our cocktail (Funky Donkey) to the recommended 5 small plates, each was fresh and delicious!! The plates were brought out one at a time allowing you to enjoy each on its own. The wait staff was very friendly and informative. Looking forward to our next visit!

Nice afternoon lunch with a small group of friends. Had a great waiter, Kevin, who made a great suggestion for a cocktail. It was not a busy afternoon (rainy Saturday) so we were able to chat a bit without feeling rushed out. Had the romaine salad with quinoa and black beans - was perfect for what I was wanting.

As much as they tout themselves as a craft cocktail bar, I was genuinely surprised to discover they could not provide blue cheese stuffed olives for my martini! They didn't even have blue cheese in the kitchen. That was truly disappointing. Also, my friend attempted to order a couple vodka drinks "with no added sugar, sugar rim or simple syrup" and she was served a sweetened drink twice! She kept sending them back. Perhaps it was a new waitress whom wasn't familiar enough with their menu, but the impression she left was that she wasn't apologetic nor did she bother to try to make up for it by offering an unexpected surprise & delight. The service just plain missed the mark for us.

Great food, nice quiet ambiance, but hit or miss perhaps on service and bar offerings.

Very good selection of shared plates though a bit on the pricey side for some of the dishes. Could use a better selection of N/A beverages; at a trendy spot like this craft soda's instead of the typical diet cola would be appreciated for those of us that don't drink.

Excellent food, unique and flavorful. The greeting was weak and frustrating, they were short on menus? Also, the place is loud, no acoustic panels on the ceilings, hard surfaces everywhere so the sound was loud and chaotic. The food and serving staff were great. To marks, looking forward to going back.

We were sat at the first two top of the bar, which meant the host and the phone are right behind you. It was a bit noisy and distracting. Also being sat that close to the bar, meant great service, but no privacy. The food is pretty good and a nice variety!

I don't normally write reviews or comment, but I will make an exception in this instance. First time at L&W and I ordered the mesquite roasted chicken. When it arrived, the dish looked appetizing but the sliced chicken breast could be best described as tough and rubbery. In fact I don't think I've ever had chicken that tasted as bad as that. I also ordered the apple bread pudding, which was decent but not enough to overcome the underwhelming chicken dish. Service was okay, I'm not sure how experienced our waiter was as we had to ask to place a drink order before our dinner order. Overall my first impression was I was underwhelmed by the experience so I don't think I could recommend Lucy and The Wolf to friends despite the cool name.

Lucy & Wolf is a favorite Date Night location for my husband and I. The ambiance, small plates and tasty drinks make for an intimate atmosphere. We have enjoyed most of the food we’ve tried, but have had a few we have not. This was due more to personal preference than preparation-we like to try different foods. I would highly recommend.
