I tried Food Dance on a recommendation. My breakfast was wonderful. Nothing earth shaking but everything tasted the best it could and the service was outstanding. Now for the bad news, as with the best comes a price. 14 bucks with coffee a piece. I will be back but not as often as I would like.

My wife and I were in town for one night. This place was great. It would be successful in NY or Chicago. I had a one of the best burgers I ever had. The atmosphere was big city. Great local beer selection. It was Rib Fest in town, the place was still packed. 2 parking lots for easy parking. Service... More

We went to Food Dance for dinner and were really amazed with the good quality food as well as the great service. The fresh salad and bread were delicious. The burger and fries with the homemade ketchup were also a treat. I can also recommend the ultimate Mac N' Cheese - super cheesy! Everything was made straight from scratch which... More

The mac and cheese is amazing! Items are a little pricey on some things, but the atmosphere is great.

This is my favorite place to eat in Kalamazoo. I have loved every single dish I have ever had. Sometimes the sides are a little too different for me, but I do enjoy trying them as something new. My favorite dish is the salmon which luckily has stayed on the revving menu. The fondue is something you should experience, though... More

We heard good things about Food Dance so we called and made reservations. We arrived a few minutes early so we expected to wait a bit. We were told it would be 10 minutes. Thirty minutes later we were told it would be 10 minutes. We ginally got a table. We felt the food was just OK; but considering the... More

Having lived in Kzoo early in FD history was looking forward to returning during a visit with friends. Sadly, IMHO, it was better before they expanded. Our waiter was lazy, the menu was interesting and creative;but the food was cold, not tasty and a big disappointment. Going back to Kzoo soon and will not return to food dance.

Food Dance has a modern feel to it, and we felt at home right away. The menu had so many great looking items on it that ordering was a challenge. The farm to table items that we chose were all delicious. Try the curry popcorn chickpeas, their artisinal cheeses, the French twist or the Argentinean steak. They were all standouts!

I've been to Food Dance Twice; once with a large group and once with 2. Very good food and the service is great. Had to ask for bread the second time, and it was all the same kind. The first time I went it was a variety, but there were more people at our table. I guess they treat you... More
