I must admit, I was drawn to this restaurant because of the name. We have many things in Detroit name after General Lafayette. Probably not the best criteria for choosing a restaurant. The building an interior both had a French flavor. Even though it was late and the restaurant not all that full, a member of the staff tried to seat me in a cramped area, which I declined.
The menu here is made up of a nice selection of pretty traditional French food. Nothing really out of the ordinary. I had the Pikeperch fillet with mixed vegetables. The preparation of the fish didn't do a lot for me. A creme brulee for dessert continued that trend. I did though enjoy the beer. While not a wonderful meal, it wasn't horrible either. Service was polite and professional.
Au General Lafayette has a full bar and accepts credit cards. For me the jury's still out as to whether I'd go back.
