“wilted lettuce, no cappucino”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Over the years I have had mixed experiences with this restaurant and recently saw they were having some construction so I decided to give it another try. Unfortunately, it seemed like not much has changed; inconsistent quality. The lettuce was not fresh and the calamari was soggy and terrible. However, the scallops on the salad were excellent....go figure.

“lots of fish choices”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

There are so many choices, but every time I go, I think, why is the food just OK? The bread is good, but I always end the meal with: it will be a while before I return.

“So Good”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Food is on the pricier side but well worth it! I've never had a bad meal here. Everything is always cooked perfectly and the wait staff is always on top of things no matter how busy it gets. This is my number one choice when I'm in town for business.

“It's Real, just not Fantastic”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Real Seafood is one of a small group of restaurants that dominates the higher end of Ann Arbor dining. The food is fine - just overpriced for what it is. Not particularly original either, bearing in mind some of the outstanding food that is being created in modern American kitchens throughout the Midwest.

“A big variety of excellent seafood”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We had a table inside the restaurant, perhaps a little dark, but were pleasently surprised to receive the menus in a well illuminated tablet form, where we could turn the pages touching the screen. By selecting any plate, its photo appeared, sometimes even the recipe. We had two different fish plates, a salmon and a white fish, both well prepared, a very good linguini with clams and shrimps, each with cole slaw plus rice, vegetables or potatoes and for a small extra a very ample house salad. Prices for lunch are very reasonable, dinner is on the expensive side.
