Fiddleheads in Royal Oak, MI

DetroitLove Nov 14, 2004 10:16 AM

Tried Fiddleheads on 13 Mile last night and was really impressed. Servings were the right size and not "Midwest-trough size." The food was quite fresh and the menu was eclectic and rather cutting edge. The rare tuna was great and the scallops had by my g/f looked great as well.

It was nice to see people filing in for reservations AFTER 8:00. Maybe metro Detroit is waking up a bit. Also, it was so busy that we were seated a bit late for our 8:00 reservation...the host bought us a round of drinks. A nice touch.

Bottom line: we'll go again.

    Re-visited Friday night. Full restaurant. Service was a little slow, but the food was excellent and the prices reasonable. Loved the calamari appetizer in a spicy red sauce. I had the turbot and my husband had the salmon, both wonderfully executed. Nice enough wine list, wonderful specialty martinis (try the Lavender Martini!), but the beer list is pretty disappointing.

      Unfortunately, Fiddleheads is no more! Closed since last year.
