Food Dance is located in downtown Kalamazoo. It is in a neat old building that has been nicely renovated; the restaurant space is very creatively decorated, featuring huge corn stalk sculptures and many paintings of vegetables on the walls. Even the restrooms have hand painted walls. It is quite large, but I can imagine that it becomes quite busy for... More

We have eaten here several times and it is probably our favorite restaurant in Kalamazoo. There is a range of options on the menu from fancy to casual, and everything we have eaten has been delicious and well prepared

Business lunch meeting this week at Food Dance. Service was spot on, staff polite and not overly chatty or interruptive. I was the odd man and order breakfast for lunch. The basted eggs were warm, runny, the american fries were crisp/hot, the HOMEMADE sourdough toast was browned and dripping with REAL BUTTER. My ham was moist, seared but could have... More

We stopped in for dinner about a football game at Kalamazoo College. It was a great find. Food was delicious and very good service. Would go back

We stopped here for a late breakfast/early lunch, around 11....that was a smart move....the breakfast crowd was just clearing out, so we didn't need to wait. The meal was great. I had tue chicken dancer, and loved the bread. The others in our party had omelets and they looked and tasted fantastic... The other thing is that the omelets are... More

food dance is one of the restaurants that I frequent. The service is always great, the atmosphere is uplifting and the food is local. The tuscan tapenade is my favorite cold sandwich, which was not on the menu today. The price is reasonable for organic food.

My husband and I went here for a romantic dinner, we were SO impressed! The atmosphere is wonderful and very unique. Our server was prompt, very friendly, and made the perfect suggestions for us. She even went out of the way to make a special drink order for me, the lemongrass raspberry daiquiri the bartender made was the best cocktail... More

Stopped in here on a whim because of the interesting name with a party of five. They accommodated us so fast, we thought they had the wrong party! The place has a tastefully decorated interior which is playful and stimulating to the senses. And the food is amazing! From the Goat Cheese fondue at the start to the Cat's Meow... More
