This magical restaurant will transport you. It deserves a Michelin star or two. I was here ten years ago, and nothing has changed since then...which is awesome. Bravo to everyone involved in the creation of this meaningful, romantic, life-affirming dining experience.

Going out to dinner is about the food and the experience. We had a reservation through Open Table and indicated we were celebrating a birthday. The night started off great with a nice amuse bouche for everyone at the table (and restaurant). Three of us ordered the pre fixe menu, which had two choices for starters and entrees and then...

Had dinner with friends here during our stay at Glen Lake. The duck was perfectly prepared with a scalloped sweet potato accompaniment that was unique and wonderfully prepared. Service was personal and impeccable. Very well done and will be sure to return.

It is Family Dining because the staff and customer make you believe you are part of the family as you enjoy your meal. I am not sure how we found La Becasse because I would classify it as out in the middle of no where. Being from Chicago, it is not right down town. But absolutely worth the Journey --not... More

It's a charming little place tucked into the woods with a romantic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff. I've eaten there a handful of times over the years and I've never been disappointed. It was the first restaurant my parents took me to that served me the whole fish, it was delicious and memorable for a 10 yr old. Now... More

This lovely French bistro restaurant was the last place for us to dine on a four day trip to the area. This place is relatively small and well attended by locals so make sure you make reservations. Hubby had duck which he devoured and I enjoyed a grilled pork chop with goat cheese fondue, which was really only a sauce... More

We had an outstanding dinner! The red and golden beet gazpacho with a dollop of crab was so delicious! The beet salad -outstanding! Dinner! I had the most exquisite cod with fresh vegetables and anisette broth. Did I spell this correctly? The wine was perfection. Most friends had lamb and ate every bite. A wonderful dinner with wonderful friends.

La Becasse is always a must when visiting Northern Michigan. Quaint little country Inn that offers some exquisite food for your enjoyment. The staff are welcoming and helpful. This little place offers food that rivals the best French Cuisine that Toronto has to offer.We started off with the House Pate which was superb. I had the Duck Three Ways, others... More

Small, cozy restaurant with unspectacular menu. Meals were tasty but nothing special. Portions were modest and overpriced.

This place is extra special. It`s fine dining in a vacation spot and offers a quality dining experience with a flare for excellent sea food dishes. Our waitress had a decent knowledge of the food preparation and seasoning and served us righteously.
