My husband and I have been to West End Grill many times over the last several years, and each experience is as good as the last. It is a small restaurant so reservations are a good idea. The menu is written on a chalkboard and the server memorizes each dish and recites it. I'm always amazed how they can do... More

Went here for a business dinner. By choice, we sat at the bar. The place was not busy at all, and we could have easily gotten a table. I am guessing that had more to do with the time of year, as most of the A2 restaurants we walked past were quiet. We started with the Tuna Poke appetizer, which... More

I've eaten here once or twice a year for the past decade. Every meal is excellent, with great service to boot. For a fine dining experience, consider this one of the best spots in downtown Ann Arbor. Be prepared to shell out A LOT of money, but it's actually worth it.

Reservations required. To start, I love the atmosphere in the West End Grill. It is small and quaint and a good setting for fine dining. We have been here a few times, and the food is just outstanding each time. Starting with the appetizers, the seafood strudel and the veal meatballs are just amazing and I highly recommend each. I...

The waitstaff are knowledgeable about the offerings and their timing is incredible. Dave was our waiter and he was excellent. Reservations are a must unless... More

Been in AA for over seven years and had never eaten here. Great atmosphere, excellent waitstaff and unbelievable food. Had group of 8 for dinner. Tried the southwest crab cakes for an appetizer which were amazing. Squash soup was perfect and the had the filet stuffed with lobster. Pricy but definitely worth it. Will definitely come back.

The West End Grill offers the best dinner experience in Ann Arbor! The service is outstanding, warm and personable. The menu is not detailed in writing on the small chalk board at your table, but our server covered it in item order, in preparation detail from memory while remaining completely engaged with those at our table. The menu offers a... More

West end grill specializes in delectable appetizers, fabulous steaks, and delicious seafood. We have never had a mediocre meal here. The ambience is warm, friendly, and inviting. Treat yourself and be sure to sample a few of the appetizers.

My family and I have had many meals here over the past few years as our daughters attend the University of Michigan.. Each time is better then the next. The small bread rolls that start the meal are so fresh and delivered to the table warm.. The fish is always fresh, the steak cooked to perfection, and the desserts are... More
