    We were thrilled with everything we got on the menu except for the duck. Although the flavors were very good, my husband’s duck was difficult to chew. The whitefish Thai chili was a delight, the cornbread was mouth watering and both desserts (s’mores and blueberry shortcake were delicious. The restaurant itself was beautiful and our server was excellent. We will definitely return!

    Les Cheneaux is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We visit the UP yearly and make a point to eat there as often as possible. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. Everything is presented beautifully.

    I was disappointed that the polenta was swapped out for barley in my dish. I realize it is your last weekend, but for a vegan dish the ratio of mushrooms to barley was off balance. Too much barley. However, we will be back next year!

    This restaurant is a lovely gem in the UP. Gourmet food, impeccable service, and beautiful setting. We make it a point to dine here if we are anywhere in the vicinity; this time we traveled down from our vacation spot in Paradise, MI, well over an hour away.

    The whitefish curry just might be one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. Really, really delicious!

    I love coming here! The food and service is fantastic. We started with the charcuterie board and it was amazing! Beautiful presentation and fantastic food items! Next was the salmon sashimi and the mixed green salad of which both were delicious! The entree of the night was the duck as it was beautifully presented and with the most flavor! I had the whitefish in curry sauce that was outstanding but had heat! Flavors were amazing! Salmon was delicious too! To top it all off was the blueberry shortcake - yum! Wine list was fabulous and the dining experience exceeded our expectations! Try the place and please leave a donation for the school as they definitely deserve it!❤️👏
