Delicious

We were able to dine at Melange with another couple using a coupon from TravelZoo. I had the Scallops and Shrimp entree that was presented on a rectangular plate with the ingredients set up in 4 stacks. It was perfect. Others in the party had the duck, salmon and sea bass. It was all excellent. We... read more

Like spicy? Get a Brushfire cocktail! It is a fantastic drink I've never had anywhere else. Good food, too.

Enjoyed a birthday dinner with 7 members of my family. Our shared appetizer choices included thin slices of yellow fin tuna with ponzu sauce which we seared on a very hot rock. I ordered my favorite seafood, salmon, which was served on wild mushroom risotto. The Scottish salmon was disappointing as it came quite overcooked. Sushi rolls were very tasty... More

My husband and I recently came here because of a groupon I had purchased. I think we would have passed it by otherwise. The first thing I noticed when we walked in was how COLD it was. Bring a jacket if you come in the summer! On to the food. My husband ordered the crab cakes, which were very tasty.... More

Me and my family went here and none of us liked any of it, taste like cheap sushi and my lamb chops was basically drained in sweet Thai chilli sauce.... To avoid the bad taste , my mothers soba was flat and tasteless

Melange is beautiful and has fantastic food and service. A bit pricier but has a great happy hour special, especially if you like sushi. Their apps and wine choices are great- love going here when out with friends or on a date

Upscale, superb bar, wonderful unique menu extensive wine list. Sushi A+, but the apps and entree's set this place apart. The Duck nachos are beyond words. I had the Shrimp and Scallop Napolean-----unique , creative...delicious. This is THE place to get away from the old hippies that inhabit Ann Arbor. Melange could be in NYC or Chicago.

This restaurant which is located on a very busy restaurant filled street is hidden downstairs. Upon entering you are taken back by the elegant decor. The service is first class and super friendly. The menu is very varied. We started with two different salads both were great. Followed that with outstanding lamb chops and a great macaroni dish.

This was an excellent dinner with my mother when I was visiting her in Ann Arbor. We shared the steak river rock appetizer, which was not only tasty but also kind of fun (cooking thinly sliced meat on a very hot rock). We also had their special caprese salad, with capers, red onion, a balsamic reduction, and basil sauce. We... More
