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...

Friends will ask "What's the best restaurant in Ann Arbor"? Our response is always the West End Grill. The menu is innovative, food favorful, wine list extensive, oh and the desserts are to die for. 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

We have tried virtually all of the Ann Arbor restaurants numerous times, however this one we have missed, for one reason or another. Our experience was very good, but I would not put it at the top in Ann Arbor. The food was completely excellent, however the menu is rather plain and traditional, nothing too contemporary, which would be a... More

My husband and I ate at the West End Grill last night for our anniversary, and once again had a fantastic meal. We realized that we have been coming here for the past seventeen years; and no matter what we order, our meals are consistently superb! It's easy to have a superb dish -- but it's difficult to have consistently... More
