They have an everchanging menu featuring delicious and beautifully prepared food a very reasonable prices. I like that you can opt for small plates too. Liquid Nitrogen milkshakes in the summer are a special treat not to be missed.

We visited at lunch, though the dinner menu looks very appealing. The interior has a warm, cozy feel. We enjoyed and shared a couple of burgers, the fontina cheese & onion jam and the gruyere cheese & sauteed mushrooms were both very good. I enjoyed the nice crust on the outside of the burger which was perfectly cooked. They were accompanied by either skinny fries or a petite fresh salad. The service was good up until we were ready to leave--at that point, we waited nearly ten minutes and had to ask someone to find our server.

On my last visit I went with every recommendation the server made and had the best experience ever at Vinology. Perfect wine and meal pairing. Amazing dinner as per recommended. The menu items sound bizarre to me, yet I have never not liked a dish! They earn major points for creativity, class, and flavor!

Ok...so if you go for dinner or happy hour....yes it is noisy...tin ceilings and a bustling atmosphere. However, the booths are quieter, and more intimate. The wine list is superb w many many, did I say MANY selections by the glass. If I have 1 absolute recommendation...get the appetizer cheese plate. You will not regret it...it's pricey at $18 (if I am recalling correctly) but well worth it. We shared between 2 couples w wine...also ordered 2 additional starters ( a bit too much to be honest). Dinner plate cn be ordered as 1/2 plates or full...the cheese appetizer plus a 1/2 plate entry is plenty. Truly enjoyable food and wine. I would come back for a glass of wine and a shared cheese starter for sure. Just delicious!

My wife, son and I ate here recently on a trip to Ann Arbor, and it was a wonderful dining experience. Nice ambience, comfortable and classy without being pretentious, friendly and helpful service, great wine, and truly wonderful food. Plus they offer half orders on all their entrees, so when I asked our waiter which of two dishes he would recommend, he said "Why not get both?". I did, and both were great, although the coffee-rubbed bison was easily my favorite.
