    I have been to the Grange twice and both times the food has been delicious. The menu has some unusual items, ingredients are locally sourced, restaurant is very nice. My family were in town visiting from overseas and this was a special night out. I recommend the Grange as a good restaurant to go to.

    Walking in, grange seemed like many other Ann Arbor restaurants but soon after being seated it was noticeably different. The staff were not uniformed per say but wore a sort of farm-like attire (our server wore a plaid button down shirt and jeans). The atmosphere was like that I would imagine a farmhouse kitchen to be like. My wife and I chose the chef's 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairing and we're delighted with each courses unusual and surprising combinations that seemed to be perfectly suited for an autumn evening meal. Our server was not bothersome, but attentive as I would expect from the price range. She was knowledgeable about the food and wine and added to the excitement of each course with decadent descriptions of them.

    Grange is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is amazing and the staff is friendly and attentive. For a more casual atmosphere, head upstairs to the bar. It's kid friendly for kids who adventure beyond mac and cheese and chicken nuggets. Great wine list and mixed drinks. Amazing hand made ice creams with interesting flavors. Food is sourced as locally as possible and is fairly seasonal. You can go casual or dressy and feel at home.

    Menu heavily relies upon pork. My friend and I did choose to have a salad each and share perch entree. Her side salad looked very nice and was reasonably priced at $5. My heirloom tomato salad was overpriced & had too much balsamic vinegar on the salad overwhelming the tomatoes and basil puree. It was ice the way they separately plated our shared entree. There was a very long wait between our salad and entree presentation with no appearance by the wait staff. The entree was warm but not hot. Perch was mediocre, setting on a starchy flavorless mass. The bread was quite good. The restaurant was not very crowded for a Saturday night. Their concept of locally sourced is a winner, but the execution falls short. Plus it is overpriced

    Made late dinner reservations for a group of 6 on a Friday night. A member of our party is a vegetarian and very picky about his food and wines but our waitress Kim was very well informed about the menu, patient and accommodating.

    Last Saturday was my second dinner in a week at Grange. On both visits, we were seated promptly and where we wanted to be. The servers were courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable, and the restaurant is cozy and approachable, right down to the chalkboard with specials, a list of local vendors, and the evening's ice creams. This last visit, things were delayed a bit more than expected due to timing of larger parties. My son had the duck, which was terrific. I had the pan seared chicken with chicken sausage - very tender and flavorful. We took an order of the "meat pops" - their kabobs of chorizo, blue cheese, and dates - home to my wife. A terrific appetizer. This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor.

    Grange Kitchen and Bar is not only the best restaurant in Ann Arbor, it is one of the best restaurants anywhere! The food could not be fresher - farm to table is accurate! They list their purveyors on the chalkboard on the wall. One night I dined alone on fried green tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes and perch. Beautiful, delicate and so flavorful. The wine pairing was perfect. My waiter was attentive without being smothering. He really knew his wines. I returned the next night with my husband for the chef's five course fantastic tasting menu My husband pronounced his Vesper cocktail among the best.The dessert of frozen watermelon, buttermilk ice cream and celery gratinee was so refreshing.

Most importantly the food was better than I would have ever expected. Fresh and prepared to simple perfection. Dishes weren't dressed to hide the food. The local fresh ingredients were made to shine. Simply Amazing.

    I have been to Grange 3 times, and two of them were special occasions (an anniversary and a birthday). The service is attentive but not overbearing, and very knowledgeable about all menu items including the wine list. The ambiance is fine dining meets farm house, and the food is all locally sourced and posted to the large chalkboard. Try the ice cream for dessert. Also, make sure to get the chef's tasting menu on a visit. You won't be disappointed!

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Tasting Menu with wine pairing. It was the end of August and we enjoyed the bounty of summer - grilled cantaloupe, creamy goat cheese, pesto, grilled peaches, bountiful tomatoes all perfectly and creatively executed throughout the 5 courses. Also great salmon, grilled pork loin, and an amazing dessert with buttermilk ice cream over chunks of watermelon with a celery granita. I can't think of a better way to end the sumer. I was told each night the chef creates a new tasting menu based on what is available and delicious. What talent and creativity! The majority of the food comes from within 60 miles. We were thrilled to be able to experience this treat with our daughter on a recent trip to see U Michigan.

    We absolutely loved our experience at Grange. The food quality was excellent and the service was top notch. The specialty drinks were also outstanding. We dropped our daughter off for her freshman year and after a long day of unloading and unpacking we were looking forward to a relaxing and delicious meal which is what we got at Grange. My husband had the lake fish which was cooked to perfection. My 13yr old son had the goat cheese gnocchi with the Michigan shrimp and I had a delicious berry grain vegetable dish that was to die for. Lots of options for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. Highly recommend!

    The last time I went to The Grange, a few years ago, I was not impressed. Along with the strange layout of upstairs, main floor and downstairs for the restrooms (very steep and uneven stairs), the food was very lackluster. BUT, we celebrated a business project and decided to try The Grange. To my surprise, we were very satisfied with the food and service. Fried green tomatoes were wonderful, along with the gnoochi with MI shrimp and the duck. We risked the Corn Ice Cream?. Excellent. Had appetizers upstairs, (too dark for my taste), then sat outside and service was great in both settings. Little pricey, somewhat limited eclectic menu, but that's Ann Arbor.

    I tried this restaurant for the first time and have been to Ann Arbor many times. It is a "foodie" restaurant in that everything is so unique. I absolutely loved that. The portions are very small and I am not a big eater and I encourage the restaurant to at least increase the sides by a few mouthfuls. The dessert was a WOW for me. I had the farmer's sundae and my husband had the homemade ice cream and we both thought it was the best we ever had and we are foodies that have eaten in many fine restaurants! I don't recommend the restaurant to people that can't think out of the ordinary but it might be too different for them. The whole scene in Ann Arbor was just amazing on a warm summer night. I just love the city.

    I really enjoyed the food, this was given to me as a birthday present and I had wanted to try Grange for some time. I was impressed with the atmosphere, and the gentleman that met me at the hostess stand was very polite. Our server was nice as well, however, I got the feeling that because we were only a 2-person table that we weren't getting as much attention as her other tables. I am not sure if she was very busy, or if she is not able to manage her time well as a server. I was formerly in the hospitality business and I understand things can get hectic on a Saturday night. I just simply felt like she was not very attentive to our table, and it didn't leave me with a good vibe from the "service" portion of the restaurant.

    Had two appetizers and two entrees. Appetizers (duck fat fries and chorizo-dates-blue cheese) were excellent. Gnocchi was good but shrimp overcooked. Duck was very tough even with cooking only medium rare. Chef was advertised to be at an event that night so that may have had an impact. Bacon Manhattan had more smoke flavor than bacon. Would have highly recommended this place had the shrimp and duck been prepared properly.

    It's a foodie place, so be warned, no plain steak or chicken or fish. That being said if there is a little sense of adventure, it's a great place to go. Only hicupps were small. The gazpacho was good but warm, which threw some of us off, it was basically tomato soup, good but just tomato soup. Bread took a while to get refilled and the dishes sat awhile when we were for sure done. Prices were reasonable, dinner for two around 110 including three drinks between us, no desert and tip, pretty fair. Overall well worth a trip for something different. The craft drinks are great

Our server also deserves praise - we showed up before opening and he came out to us and brought us hot tea and all throughout the meal took great care of us.

    We've liked Grange for several years already, for both brunch and dinner, and chose them as yt? He site for our final dinner with friends before moving out of state. Drinks were expertly made (the GKB Manhattan and Tea Thyme are among the best cocktails in town), apps were tasty and prompt, and despite our party members arriving and ordering at different times our delicious dinners came out together. This was the first time we lingered for dessert--the ice creams were intense and amazing. Many thanks to Grange for making our last evening in Ann Arbor a perfect one!

    My friends and I met for brunch on a Sunday. Three of the four of us had never been to Grange, and had high expectations. We were not disappointed! Everything on the menu sounded so delicious, even though there were only 9-10 choices for entrees, it was hard to decide, and we were grateful to not have more to chose from! When the food did arrive, everything tasted wonderful. The list of cocktails was alluring too; we all ordered something different and they all were fantastic. We sat on the patio, which is always lovely in my opinion. Our server was personable and attentive, he made it seem like we were his only table, although, we definitely were not!
