Was traveling on business and decided to stop here. I’m so glad we did!! It is SUPER cute inside and the food was fantastic!

I’ve never been to a restaurant that served Polish, German and Russian food. It was so yummy! We tried a little bit of everything. Cabbage Rolls, Pierogis,paprika’s, goulash, potato pancakes, sausage, and pork tenderloin. Everything was delicious. The desserts were delicious. The restaurant is small...and decorated very old world European. Very eclectic. The service was spot on. The party of 8 I was with all went crazy for it. We will be back.More

If you're looking for a little place to tuck into and out of the windy Ann Arbor winter (or fall for that matter), check out Amadeus on Washington St. You'll feel like you walked into your Polish grandmother's dining room - mismatched chairs, lace curtains,...kitschy stuff on the walls, and even your old uncle or younger cousin playing the piano (or guitar or whatever other live music is on hand). Pierogis rule here but they sell out fast so make sure you know what's available before you order. Entrees are hearty and not really for those watching their cholesterol (kielbasa and sauerkraut anyone?). The wine list is short and Eastern/Central Europe in focus. An added bonus - there is a small but relatively undiscovered parking garage right across the street.More

Loved dinner with friends here after seeing a play in Chelsea. Parking garage across the street makes it very convenient. Service was wonderful, very quaint atmosphere, and the food is delicious - Hungarian/Polish/Austrian specialties. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Pierogi appetizer, yum! Potato pancakes with goulash,...wonderful! and the bread they serve is a delight.More

Tremendous service, bread is ambrosia. Menu is a combination of Austrian, Polish and German cuisines offering a variety of dishes from pierogi to sausage and sauerkraut salad. Portions are very comfortable, medium sized plates for our lunch. Hot tea, coffee and espresso were superb and,...with beautiful and delicious desserts were a good ending to our lunch for four. Convenient parking right across the street, space in the dining room is limited but wide open. Lunch for four with hot drinks and desserts was just over $90.00. More than we usually spend, but special friends deserve a special meal in a special restaurant and Amadeus fit the bill perfectly. After paying our bill I purchased a dozen bread rolls to take home! Don’t pass this place by if you like continental European cuisine.More

We have eaten here a few times now and every time it has been a treat. From the Beet Soup to the entrees we have not had anything not top drawer. One of our now favorite places in AA.

Amadeus is a really unique restaurant nestled in downtown Ann Arbor. Definitely gives you a very cozy European vibe with all of the decorations and atmosphere. The food was amazing and our waitress was very accommodating and friendly.

This place was amazing! We ordered a few things for the table. The kielbasa was crispy and juicy, the potato pancakes were crunchy and oily ( in a good way) the pierogis were flavorful. But the real star was the chicken paprikash it was tender...and juicy and delicious and flavorful. Nice strong drinks!! Our server was great as well, longer dirty blond hair with a pony tail. He over heard we had a birthday and brought over the best chocolate gateau cake I’ve ever had. CHECK THIS PLACE OUTMore

We’ve been coming here for 25 years. We absolutely love the eclectic atmosphere and Eastern European food. I always get the fantastic chicken paprikash and my husband orders the pork cutlet or pierogis. Everything is fresh and delicious. The guitar playing in the background is...so mesmerizing. The service is always impeccable.More

We have eaten at Amadeus many times, and it never disappoints. A charming Cafe, not large but comfortably roomy. They serve the best Polish, Hungarian, and Russian food in the area. Whenever I walk in, the food aromas take me way back to the early...1960's, with foods cooked by my Grandma...and of course eaten in the basement. This is the place to go to experience the flavors and textures of top notch Eastern European cuisine. You will be delighted.More
