Converted old gas station makes an interesting setting for a good place to eat. Many great selections with excellent service. Also has a nice bar. Fill it up please!

This was a second trip for our group, because we so enjoyed the first. This time, not so much. 3 of 4 dinners were excellent (perch and 8-oz fillet) but one of our group ordered the daily fish special, which, as it turned out, was a downright dangerous idea. The fish was said to be "White Tuna" which the waitress... More

They served escolar fish without warning. I was told it was a white tuna. This fish has a known side effect and is banned in other countries. I paid $31 for a fish that is making me sick. When I brought this problem to the attention of the manager he was rude. I will never return to this restaurant and... More

Stopped here with another couple between a wedding ceremony and reception on a Sunday afternoon. We were going to sit at the bar but decided to sit at a booth next to the bar last minute seeing as 1) the place was dead and 2) we would rather be able to see each other's faces while conversing. We ordered from... More

Really unusual place. Refreshing style of an old car garage. Good food and service. Bar well stocked and good wine list. Just a cool place to hang out Eat and enjoy. Menu is very well spread over several different tastes. You will find something you like. Great spot

was here for a private event in their model a room. A wide variety of appetizers were served - nothing really stood out except their steak bites w/zip sauce. Noisy typical industrial space turned bar atmosphere. Really exceptional wait staff.

We walked in at 1:20 pm on a Friday afternoon to a half empty restaurant and were told we'd have to wait an hour for a table for ten women. This astonished me, as there were five empty tables, for two-four people, all conveniently next to each other, yet when I inquired whether the tables could be put together to... More

So glad we broke tradition and visited this spot! Loved the ambiance and super attentive staff! Lamb kabobs were perfect. Hubby said calamari was best ever! (I'm not a fan.). Looking around at other diners' food choices, I was very impressed by the presentation. Artfully done! Crowd was a mix of families and couples. Definitely will return.

This restaurant is trying so hard to be trendy, when it could just be a really solid restaurant in Northville, which isn't exactly overrun with eating options. The service is poor, which is aggravating, and the food is overpriced for what you get. I got the entree tacos with rice and beans - which was so spicy, I didn't even... More

Came here with my husband for lunch. The restaurant itself is lovely, and nicely appointed. The food was average at best. I had the turkey gyro, which arrived disassembled and was rather difficult to eat. Flavor was ok. Husband had the sliders, which he thought were bland, have to agree. They need to step it up.

Thank sportz2

Garage... is a dining experience on Main Street at the corner of Wing Street in historic downtown Northville, Michigan. The menu is as classic as the circa 1940 service station that is home to Garage.Respectful of the past and stylish by today's trends, the restaurant, the bar and outdoor cafe are visually exciting with great views of the town. A separate "To Go" counter has been created for easy access.An important feature of Garage is the Banquet Room, an 80 seat private room which has a view of an impeccably restored 1930 Ford Model A car that creates part of the overall banquet experience.
