Very Good Asian French Fusion

On the waitress' recommendation we ordered the duck nachos. They were delicious. Duck meat on a nacho chip with guacamole and a pickled onion and other ingredients that melted in your mouth with a blend of flavors.

We dined last night with another couple in honor of my husband's birthday. It was our first visit to Melange. We waited for over ten minutes for a server to attend to our table and twenty before our first cocktail arrived. A restaurant like this makes a good portion on alcohol and they missed it with us. We mentioned to... More

There had to have been a change in ownership here because it has changed and not for the better. Their sushi is becoming more and more inconsistent. Some nights they don't even have sushi and have to scramble around to make up for it during their happy hour. And WORST OF ALL? Some of the servers sneak an 18 percent... More

Excellent, interesting, eclectic foods with substitutions welcome. My friends are vegans and vegetarians, and the chef is willing to adapt any dish accordingly, and in many cases the result is even better. This restaurant is easy to miss. There is a sign for it on Main Street, right next door to The Ark. However, you immediately go down stairs; the... More

I was our first visit and we had a light dinner in the lounge. It was about 6:30 and we did not have reservations but the lounge offered first come first serve seating and there were several tables available. My friend had their sushi which was 1/2 off during Happy Hour and I had their Duck Nachos. Both dishes were... More

This restaurant is a definite must in Ann Arbor. They have the best happy hour deals in town with half off of their amazing sushi! The waitstaff is very personable and efficient. This is a definite favorite!

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 finished it off with... 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
