went to Sunday brunch with friends. Our server was wonderful! He brought us new silver every time we went up to the buffet and refolded our napkins. When our meal was over he called the valet for our car. It was very busy and yet he was able to hold chairs for us and maintain table maintenance. The food was... More

Went for our anniversary dinner. Not the first time we have visited this restaurant, and have always had great service and food. This visit we had David as our server. He went above and beyond in providing us superior service. Food was outstanding as well. Would recommend to anyone wanting a special night out.

Interesting décor in a restored train station. Staff is very attentive, and supremely courteous. Nice variety of menu choices. On a very busy evening it appeared the kitchen/server connection on delivery of plates was not working too well. At our table of four, two dishes arrived with barely warm to cool entrees. Wine list is not too extensive, and over-priced.

We were looking for a place for our wedding anniversary dinner. Based on reviews we choose Gandy Dancer and we both enjoyed. The staff were very friendly, all the items we ordered were nice. (crabcake, tilapia, whitefish). They even printed a special menu for us (please see picture)! And Crème brûlée was on the house!! All in all we enjoyed... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit for a fancy meal in Ann Arbor. I love the salmon pate they serve before the meal and I have never had a meal I didn't like. The staff is always extremely professional. Food is expensive but I expect that for the type of food I am receiving. I love the... More

Beautiful restaurant, housed in an old train station and has a great ambiance.The staff were very friendly and the service was superior. Making the reservation was also very easy despite a busy football weekend in Ann Arbor, thanks to their helpful staff. However, the quality of the food does not live up to the hype and it is too expensive... More

This was THE place to dine 30+ years ago, when our parents came into A2 and offered to treat their kids to a nice evening. We were somewhat disappointed on a recent return trip. Food was good but nothing special, service was the same, and it remains expensive for the quality of the evening. Many empty tables on a Friday... More

While I have had meals I would term "average" at the GD in the past, last night was not one of them. For openers the "by the glass" wine selection was slim and no imported Sauvignon Blanc to be had. I opted to have an appetizer and a soup rather than an entree. The Mussels were supposed to be cooked... More

This was the PERFECT dining experience! The atmosphere, the food, and the service! If I remember, our waitress's name was Julia, and she told us all about the history of the restaurant. Yes, it is expensive, so it is not a once a week restaurant. Goooooo!
