Mixed feelings...

We had such a fun dinner here on Friday. The atmosphere is lively and enthusiastic. This is not a stuffy restaurant. The décor could definitely use some updating. I appreciated that the tables are not super close together like some other Ann Arbor downtown restaurants. This is a place that you can... read more

We love this intimate restaurant and their chalk board menu. Everything is fabulous and you will not be disappointed by the wonderful selections to entice your palate.

We dared the odds and ordered seafood - (We live on Cape Cod - what were we thinking?). Great Scallops!!! Very fine and attentive service, and hearty libations. We'll be back, next time in Ann Arbor. What a nice spot!!! n.b. easy parking in a municipal lot only 1/2 block walk away. Worth seeking out ( the restaurant ).

My husband and I ate at this restaurant for the first time last night and the food was fantastic our waiter Dave found out we are gluten free and made sure ever thing was in that order. Special made sauce and the clean silverware and a candle to celebrate our anniversary. Loved the restaurant. We will definitely be back.

Maybe it was the overall ambiance that just didn't lend itself to a relaxing dinner. Pretty noisy, no music. High end pretensions and prices without... More

The sea bass is as good as anywhere I've ever had, if highly recommend ordering it. Everything is good, just don't fill up on beignets!

The West End Grill has been serving excellent food in Ann Arbor for some time. On a recent visit, during one of our traditional January cold snaps, the restaurant was a warm and cozy safe haven from the arctic blast occurring outside. Mid-evening on a Friday the place was full up, but not buzzing with activity. The crowd was as... More
