Pleasantly surprised

I recommend Melange. An upscale restaurant with an adventurous menu. Food was well prepared, atmosphere pleasant (hear late eve weekends can be very noisy), waiter was oddly condescending. It was one of my better meals out in a while.

Made a reservation here because I got a 25% discount from having tickets to a concert at Hill Auditorium. What a pleasant surprise! Service was great. The food was wonderful. The portion sizes were just right not too big or too small. The waiter overheard my mom wishing me a happy birthday and brought out a beautiful piece of cheesecake... More

It was highly recommended and I really liked the decor (and the backlit menus), but it was pretty expensive and while the descriptions on the menu sounded very innovative, the food was sort of hit or miss. There were five of us and only one really liked what they had. Service was friendly but just average as well.

Wanted so much to love this restaurant. The Melange salad was so so. We had the beef on hot rocks and the tuna on hot rocks. The rocks weren't hot enough so was hard to cook. The California roll was EXCELLENT. Even though the restaurant was not crazy busy took an excessively long time for the food to come out.... More

Reservations on the weekend may be hard to come by here. But the lounge/bar area is rather big with first come/first serve. If you get here before 6pm, there should be tables in the lounge. The food is very good. We had the River Rock for appetizer. It is always fun to cook on a rock though you only get... More

One of the few places in Ann Arbor where friends can sit for dinner in a comfortable attractive setting and hear themselves. Good wine list. Appetizers and desserts are strong points of the menu, main courses a little disappointing.

We do not get to Ann Arbor that often, but we had a travelzoo coupon, and a theater engagement with the University of Michigan Musical Society, so we had the opportunity to dine at Melange. Everything was first rate, very friendly, quiet enough for easy conversation in a comfortable booth. We tried a wide variety of things, Crab Cake, Duck... More

Hostess really made our night by placing us in a cozy booth. Waiter was cool and not demanding, appreciate that. Sea Bass was amazing, some tomatoes came with it that were cooked with amazing sauce, wife got that. Me, the Ribeye, I don't eat much red meat but it was really good. In the end, I should have gotten the... More

Melange might have one of the best happy hours in Ann Arbor. The drinks are half off and the happy hour menu is substantial. The duck nachos and quesadillas are out of this world. If you enjoy sushi ask for the sushi menu. The chef does an exceptional job. Staff too is very good

When we went below ground I did not know what to expect. I found a beautifully decorated restaurant with large booths in addition to tables~~it felt a little exotic. That matched the food perfectly. Many traditional dishes, but many original fusion choices as well.The service was impeccable. I can highly recommend Melange.
