We stopped mid-afternoon for some drinks and a light snack. They were doing happy hour pricing on glasses of wine which allowed us to sample a variety of wines. We ordered some small plates, one which included the corn fungus tacos which I haven't had since I was in Mexico City. They were pretty amazing considering we were a long... More

These are the most adventurous chefs in Ann Arbor by a long shot. Not every dish is the bee's knees, but most of them have symphonic flavor compositions. That being said, this is probably the only restaurant in A2 where knowing a little bit about food and preparation techniques is important to fully appreciate the experience. Hopefully they start experimenting... More

My partner and I had an excellent meal at Vinololgy last Saturday night. My pork dish was interesting with good depth of flavor, without being overpowering. My partner had the vegetarian cannelloni which was beautifully presented with a variety of sauces. I would recommend this local haunt highly.

The menu is promising and the atmosphere is great. People who know Ann Arbor very well recommended the place for our group meeting. The food is good, but from my personal view sometime they added too many ingredients to the courses. I experienced it with the good wedge salad that had smoked fish, pickled onion and many other ingredients. I... More

I was on business in Ann Arbor and a colleague suggested Vinology. We shared the Chicken Liver, and mini Lamb Kofta, and then both had the Chicken under Brick as a main course. Wonderful food, perfectly cooked and served, and a great 'buzz' in the restaurant. There was a cool looking bar (we ate in a booth), that I will... More

I convinced my husband to take a road trip up to Ann Arbor and go to VInology. This is our third time there, and we were not disappointed. For an appetizer we tried the chevre pop tarts with three types of fruit chutney on the side. They were amazing and the fruit chutneys were the perfect foil for the cheese.... More

Agree with previous reviewer. The food is definitely more impressive than the wine. With the name, I expected at least a separate wine menu. We tried the white wine flights- fun but disappointed that they were served a little too warm and the glasses used were too thick.Good pour though. My husband's zinfandel was served in a Reidel glass- more... More

Hit or miss for vinology. Been here for restaurant week twice and enjoyed that. Also been here for a sponsored dinner and enjoyed that. Came here for a birthday and did not have the best experience- service and ambience were fine, just that the food did not justify the prices. While they can definitely serve up some good food at...

A name like this puts pressure on them from the start. It's not like they can get away with a mediocre wine selection when they slap an "ology" label on their name -and in a sophisticated college town no less. And for the most part - they deliver. The didn't have our first choice of pinot noir that we selected... More

Vinology has been our go-to place for a long time. The cheese flight and a glass of red never disappoint and the ever changing menu keeps us coming back. I recently had one of the best meals of my life. You must try the Vegetable Tostada on the lunch menu. Please, please Chef Jim, don't ever take it off!
