James Beard award winner. Jim and Mary Lark ran one of the finest restaurants in the country. Widely acclaimed as metro Detroit's top spot for many years. House specialty Genghis Kahn rack of lamb. One of the best wine cellars anywhere. Rest in peace, Lark.

It could not be better. It's closing is a loss, but understandable. I wish someone could be found to carry on what the Larks created. A book of recipes would sell and be a great way to remember.

Delicious food, wonderful service and delightful ambience. Reservations required, owner retiring and restaurant closing at end of year. Highly recommend the Lark if you can get in.

Closing soon. Owners/founders are in their mid-80's. Time to move on. Great appetizers on their unique cart. Super service and simply wonderful food. They will be missed after December.Probably no reservations left ,so I will stop.

My husband and I had not been to the Lark in probably 13 years. We revisited the Lark with some good friends on Valentine's Day. Jim Lark hovered over our table pushing us to speed up our dining. He was rude and should be retired....More
