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.

Felt more like upscale bar with some interesting food than a full restaurant. Smaller than expected- on food and space. Server was very gracious and friendly. We’d return, but not for a special occasion. Our daughter said it was very “Boujie”

Though an established favorite, noise continues to be an issue.
There are sufficient small plate choices to earn return visits with differing meal options. An enjoyable experience that merits a visit and will doubtless continue to impress and evolve.

This was my second trip to Lucy and the Wolf. The food was great, just like last time. The only down side was the food came out very slowly. Our server was kind and apologetic, so that helped.

We have been to Lucy & the Wolf several times. The food is good with many choices. On this occasion the restuarant was quite busy but we were seated quickly with our reservation. However it took a long time for to be waited on. The food we ordered tasted good but every dish was burned. This is not usually the case. We brought it to our servers attention before the last course was served but it was burnt also. She did apologize and didn't charge us for our dessert. We will return and hope this was just an oven issue.

I met 2 of my friends for dinner, our waitress recommended excellent dishes. We had the special of the day, the snap peas. She also suggested the goat cheese dip (yum) the heirloom tomatoes in the cast iron skillet ( delicious) and we had the black bean and quinoa tacos...very tasty. My friends had wine, I had a mixed drink, also recommended by our server, which was very refreshing. We all enjoyed our night out at Lucy and the Wolf!

Food is always wonderful, and the staff is helpful. Tables are very crowded and uncomfortable if you’re not in a booth. The restaurant should give serious thought to getting rid of those metal chairs.

Casual spot with very good small plates. Over a two-and-a-half-hour social evening three of us tried multiple menu offerings, each of which was thoughtfully prepared and very tasty. I’ve been looking for a really good fish taco from among the meh variety which is almost standard everywhere. I may just have found a standout with several layers of flavor, three different texture layers (crunchy veggies, tender fish, velvety sauce) in a perfect soft shell. Our waitress was excellent. She was vivacious and knowledgeable, checked on us often enough without being intrusive, and kept us updated about our orders. My only disappointment was the “aged” craft negroni. It was more a negroni riff, too heavy and a bit too sweet. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t cut it as a negroni. They might want to give it a different name.

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

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.
