    Amazing experience, celebrating our anniversary! From the food, to the cocktails to the service, all exceeded expectations. Parking garage nearby, but note that part of it was very tight fit for our Standard SUV.

    Usually an excellent experience, this time was very disappointing. Limited entree menu (favorite scallop dish not on the menu), filet mignon was pathetic - thin, covered in gravy! Incredibly disappointing for the price. Probably should’ve sent it back. Service slow and inattentive, although they were very busy with a full restaurant and the wait staff was stretched. We went there to celebrate my birthday, won’t do that again!

    Great service. Food not quite as good as we recalled. Calamari excellent but some of the salad it was presented on was frozen. Sushi grade scallops were wonderful. Menu needs a revamp from the COVID pull back. At one point they were the best restaurant in town. Would like to see them bring back Chilean Sea Bass.

    Love the new dining room! Service was excellent -- very attentive and well-paced. Food was delicious. We had the halibut and the hangar steak after the butternut soup and the mushroom dumplings. Also the creme brulee.

    We shared three appetizers: duck tacos, asparagus risotto, and salmon poke. All were outstanding. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the mushroom ragu and bordelaise sauce added wonderful flavors. Our server had a winning demeanor and just the right amount of attentiveness.

    We had another wonderful meal at Taste Kitchen. The hangar steak salad, grilled salmon with 2 sauces, split pea soup were excellent. House drinks are very good, yet pricey. Served by a very nice attentive server, Sharon. We like the ambience. Menu items are more limited since COVID. Would like to see another fish option return like Sea Bass or Halibut. One of our A2 favorites.

    We had a wonderful meal and experience at Taste Kitchen. The food was outstanding! Chilean Sea Bass with lobster in a curry, coconut lobster sauce was flavorful, tender, seared perfectly and zero fishiness. Duck breast perfectly prepared as well. Luke our server was a delight as were all the others who helped. Timing was perfect. Highly recommend. A bit on the pricey side. Some of Ann Arbor’s best food!

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner and drinks after a movie at the Michigan-- so convenient! We chose to eat outside on a lovely evening, but, of course, we were near the street traffic. Our server was attentive and very pleasant, and the mussels and paella were outstanding.

    Food is beautifully presented and prepared. Drinks are artful and strong. However for the price there should be more than one shrimp in a bouilliabase. Also when we ordered an appetizer for a main course it came & was priced full dinner size without asking us which size we wanted. We will try going again but be more explicit with our ordering.

The ambiance was elegant but modern and warm and the gracious and attentive service made our evening an absolute pleasure. We'll be back.

Menu had a little bit of everything snd 4 of us enjoyed sharables and main menu options. Fish snd Duck tacos were good, and especially appreciated they were served in corn tortillas. Beet salad was outstanding.
