Great Night Out

Lively, fun atmosphere. Our waiter was very patient and knowledgable. Filet and scallops where cooked perfectly. Enjoyed ourselves and will return.

I called prior to our visit and was told that I would have many choices and when the server reviewed the options that were gluten free I had only a couple and then one option with no sauce- if I am going to spend $100 plus per person for dinner I do not want beef broiled plain and dry!!

I had never been to the West End prior to this December. The service was great and the food unbelievable. I had a steak that was to die for. I will be saving up money to return again

We went for our 50th Wedding Anniversary upon the recommendation(s) of others here on Tripadvisor. We started with a complimentary glass of champagne and a wild mushroom gnocchi. Then it was off to the entrees, I had a superb Delmonico that was prepared to perfection. The wife savored her Chilean sea bas, this was all accompanied by some great craft... More

We were visiting in Ann Arbor this weekend and my cousin make reservations at the West End Grill. Her family had gone earlier but she wasn't able to go and since they had loved it, they took us there. The restaurant was full and the noise level was high but that is what I expected. The menu is written on... More

This is one of two restaurants we use for celebrations. We are sure to find dishes that are interesting and unique. The waitstaff is always attentive. This review makes me realize we need to go there again soon!

West End Grill has been around for many years here; food is consistent, decently priced and delicious. They are particularly good at preparation of fish, and the menu (on a chalkboard) reflects the emphasis on what is fresh. Their cheese beignets, the complementary bread, can be addictive. Clam chowder is excellent, sable fish is buttery and delicious. The servers really... More

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 actually have a conversation and not feel like... More
