Anyone know of a place with good food and great service in MACOMB, MI - near Hall Rd?


I'm looking for a local upscale but not too upscale (no chains) restaurant with excellent service as close as possible to the following address:

23000 Hall Road, Macomb, MI 48042

I would like to give a gift certificate. Food type might be continental, American or Italian? Maybe a delicious steak house?

If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.

  1. suggestions:

    andiamo italian bistro on hall road in the lakesdie mall circle. i know that you said no chains - this is one of ten andiamo restaraunts - but they are all local and owned by joe vicari. very good italian.

    j baldwin's on 18 mile - two miles south of hall road. fairly new place opened by a local chef that has been successful at a few local places. steaks, chops, chicken, seafood, & pasta. very good.

    1. Wow, that's tough because Hall Rd. is just about all chains.

      I'm not as keen on Andiamo's as the above poster. To me it's mediocre at best.

      There is a great locally owned Italian place about 10 minutes from the mentioned address. If that's not too far then consider Picanno's on Rochester Rd. They make all of their pastas from scratch and have aa perfect house made ceasar dressing. I've always greatly enjoyed meals there. When I lived in the area I would say I went there once every two months or so.

      1. i agree that picanno's is better than andiamo's. i live a mile away and have had many wonderful meals there. it's just a little far from hall road (to me, hall road = lakeside mall) which is more like 20 minutes away with mild traffic.
