Ordered petite fillets well done and medium- rare. Both excellent. Be prepared for small servings but we appreciated the "just right" portions. Bleu cheese tarts were zingy and yummy. Some of the friendliest staff in A2. We loved the location downtown and although small, the eating areas were quaint.

They have kept their standards high. The atmosphere is welcoming, and calming. You are treated as though you are the only guest. We enjoyed the veal dumplings, brie and fig in a beggers purse, and a bleu cheese tart for starters. Our main corse consisted of a petite filet with the truffel fries, a maytag steak, and the scallop and... More

Eighteen years in business and sold out for a Wednesday evening. Turned tables. Great staff, thanks Sean. Yes, pricey but worth it. Don't miss the Tuna Poke. Have had better crab cakes. Black grouper was cooked and served at perfection, still flakey. Good selection of wines, love Mark Ryan from Washington State. Local crowd. Was U of M parents weekend... More

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...

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.
