Half price wines, beer, well drinks, and appetizers M-F 3-6. Try the duck nachos---it's the best appetizer I've had anywhere! Sushi and quesadilla also wonderful. Friendly bartender and staff.

We started with the Red Dragon and Shrimp Tempura sushi rolls. Both were delicious and artfully prepared. The Duck Nachos were 8 individual crisps with great toppings. Even people who don't like nachos and don't like duck thought these were amazing. The Thai Pasta with tofu was the hit of the evening - perfectly spiced and sauced. Lamb chops were... More

Melange is an excellent dinning place. The atmosphere is warm in every sense, beautiful bar area with intimate lighting and spacious enough for having a bite. 16 of us sat in a semi private room where we received excellent service from Cory and staff. Sushi rolls,( Monsoon), Salmon, Short ribs, all delicious. They offer an array of desserts at a... More

Melange is European-Asian fusion and was one of my favorite restaurants. The thin strips of beef on a hot rock are wonderful to look at, and it has a great choice of seafood. The tofu and veggie in lettuce leaves was a great appetizer to share for two. This restaurant is quiet so a good business discussion is possible -... More

Let me preface this review with the fact that we dined on Valentine's Day, a very busy night that must challenge all restaurants. However, our recent experience at the Melange could have been improved with only minor adjustments by the management. We made reservations two weeks in advance and at an early time (5:30 pm, thinking we would avoid the... More

As part of a recent "Restaurant Week", we dined here with another couple -- first time for the two us. As tuned in as we are to Ann Arbor's great restaurant scene, somehow Melange had not appeared on our radar. With no expectations, we found that we have been missing an excellent venue. In spite of this being Restaurant Week,... More

I loved my dinner and after dinner experience on Friday night so much that I was back the very next night. Sushi...amazing!!! The service was supreme!!! Whenever it's a date night...The Melange is top consideration if we want to go someplace where we KNOW is going to be the bomb!!! Highly recommended!

Pre-theatre dinner at Melange last night. Had an outstanding Australian sea bass---an amazing taste sensation (spicy), great texture, beautifully presented. A bit pricey, but worth it. The decor is a bit odd....sort of 1980s stark....metal/mirrors/a bit of an Asian twist. But the food is great. And the service was very attentive. I happened to be dining alone, so I had... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Melange. A great experience, fantastic food great service and environment. There are lots of very good restaurants in Ann Arbor but you shouldn't overlook this one. Had the Lamb chops and my wife had the scallops both were fabulous. Really like the way they do desert, sort of Tapas style, you select 3 smaller items... More

Overall, an experience worth repeating. The amuse bouche was uninspired. What is the wirld's fascination with goat cheese, anyway. Would have been far more flavorful with a sheep's milk feta. Like everyone else, I adored the duck nachos. You can actually taste the duck, and all the ingredients went well together. Pretzel bread with mustard butter. The spread turned out... More
