We went this past Saturday at 5:30, since the next spot was too late at 8:15. We had a bottle of petite Sirah, Consilience, which opened up nicely. Had a veggie app and the crab cakes. The veggie portabella and eggplant app was pretty decent, a bit bland and tasteless for my palate. The crab cakes was too flattened and... More

Friends treated me to dinner here while visiting Ann Arbor. It has great ambience and it is easy to have a conversation. Service was superb, and they have a comprehensive wine list. The variety of dishes offered and unusual but delicious ways to prepare them was enticing. . . a great menu, which the server lists for you with extra... More

The food is excellent and the service is efficient and professional. The noise level, however is deafening. You cannot have a civil conversation with your table without shouting. The steaks are always prepared perfectly, the fish is awesome. The duck is excellent. Meals come with either soup or salad. Reservations are a must on weekends.

This was the best dinner that I have experienced in Ann Arbor. The ambiance, food, wine, service was top notch. There is great attention to detail such as glassware, wine list, quality of food, training of servers, etc. Everything was flavorful and fresh. I cant wait to visit again. Keep up the great work!

We were so looking forward to our visit here. It made the disappointment all the greater. Overall, the food was good, not memorable. The service was adequate. The noise level was intolerable. Given the downsides, the prices were outrageous. No sense in going into more detail. We won't be going back. Ever. Too many other good to very choices within... More

We had a nice dinner here last night. Our table was in an open booth where there is a half wall separating you from tables on either side, which is conducive for intimate conversation. Everyone liked their meals- I had the highly recommended sea bass, which lived up to its reputation. My husband enjoyed his scallops and my son liked... More

We visited the West End Grill with our freshman and her friend. I loved the ambiance, although the large group sitting at the next table was very loud. I'm glad everyone was having a great time. Service was very good. The food was excellent. The cabrese salad was served with roasted tomatoes. First time I ever had roasted tomatoes and... More

You can count on a wonderful meal with attentive, but unobtrusive service every time. Staff are long-term, and very knowledgeable. Food is creative, and always hits the mark. The owner is usually on-site and details make this place a signature restaurant!

The ambience was cozy, the waiter excellent and there was nice attention to detail ie. warm plates, warm rolls, herb butter and other thoughtful touches. With it's location in a charming old building, hanging colored glass lamps and antique accessories, it felt a bit like Grandmother's kitchen which was warm and appealing on a cold dark night. The dinner itself... More
