Melange - Ann Arbor
AnniversaryMy husband and I had our celebration dinner for our Anniversary here. Our daughter surprised us and reserved the Intimate Dining Room for us. We loved the quiet and romantic atmosphere. Our server was excellent and gave us just the right amount of attention, even dimming the lights for us after we read the menu. The complimentary champagne was such a nice touch.I loved the sablefish and my husband thought the halibut was prepared just right. This was not our first time at the Melange and it certainly won't be the last !!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper atmosphere great wait staff.My wife and I had Great meal and your waitress was outstanding .6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceMy girlfriend and I are foodies and have tried almost all the restaurants in Ann Arbor within a year. This is one of our favorites, perhaps even better than Pacific Rim and Logan which both have great reputations. We had crab cakes, short ribs, and salmon and they were made to our liking.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI strongly recommend this restauranWe had the best time on Sunday.
Some of us had the Restaurant Week menu but I had the Hot Rock appetizer and the lamb chops.The baramundi was exellent.
Even though we were in the "basement" it was elegant and romantic.The bar looked modern and had some TV's.
All the food was superb without beeing intimitating.The boys did not even take a glance at the tiger score.
Wine was good ,desert was great.I wish I could upload pictures.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dining experienceAnother wonderful meal at Melange. Our server (Jamie) was excellent. We had a couple of food allergies and they dealt with them easily. We felt we were in good hands and thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the excellent meal. We highly recommend this restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatEverything from food to service was amazing. I came from pittsburgh and it was a great experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance & serviceThe best in Ann Arbor!! We truly enjoyed our experience. Thank you!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust perfect!I have dined at Melange many times for a variety of occasions including our wedding anniversary, intimate setting with close friends and also just a drink, appetizer and a night out dancing. All have been wonderful. Never disappointed. The staff are always happy and helpful and seem as though they really enjoy working at Melange. Food, drinks and service are high end and top notch!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!The duck nachos are beyond delicious! I loved them and I would definately order the lamb for an entree. For was amazing. I would definately go back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was goodThe ambience is nice and the food is good, though kinda pricey. I like that they have a different amuse bouche everytime you go back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceExcellent food, creative dishes and presentation. Our waiter was fantastic. Our best dining experience in Ann Arbor in the past few years. It is a special occasion restaurant so prices reflect this. Only one negative: we went on a Tuesday evening and a group of businessmen were at a table nearby and had no regard for the people around them. They were speaking loudly and freely using profanities. I wouldn't expect the management to say anything to them, but perhaps next time a group of business people could be seated in a more isolated area.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Evening outI had a lovely time at Melange. Great atmosphere and extremely pleasant wait staff. The food was delicious, I had the lamb and the sauce was exceptional and my partner had a very delicious piece of salmon. The finishing with some very simple and delicious restaurant made ice cream was perfect.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dining experienceMy boyfriend and I had a groupon to melange. The service was excellent, the duck nachos were absolutely delicious, the truffle chips were to die for. I would definitely go back for a special occasion.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAdams 02Yet again, outstanding food and service. Melange' continues to add unique items to the menu and provide outstanding service.
Out favorite.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM20% gratuity should not be added onFood good. Service pleasant. We were there for Mothers Day. My complaints are that is the smallest glass of wine I have ever been served... why have a huge wine glass and then serve such a small serving? And having a 20% gratuity added to a party of 3 with no explanation is not reasonable. We often tip 20% but to have it added and then given a receipt to sign that asks you to "total" the bill, which could easier lead to a 2nd tip being given.... no, this is not the kind of place I want to support.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's DayTook my family here for Mother's Day, and they loved it - my mom even got her meal for free!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationMy husband and I came to Melange to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary. We had a relaxed and romantic evening. I had the salmon dish and my husband has the braised ribs - both were delicious. I would highly recommend Melange for a great evening.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExening outHad dinner with a party of five last Thursday evening. There were only about five tables occupied when we arrived but the bar was full and very active. Service was good as was most of the food, the only glitch was my daughter in laws short ribs were on the cool side but that was promptly rectified. Overall it was a very nice dining experience.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service. Our waiterOutstanding service. Our waiter gave us an excellent wine suggestion, and was attentive without being over-present. All dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. Two members of our party raved about the Thai Pasta. I am anxious to return to Melange to try that dish too.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Fantastic!Melange has become my go-to restaurant for dinner with visiting guests. The service is excellent, and the food is always phenomenal. As a word of advice, the Alaskan halibut was absolutely delicious (although I suspect you'd have a hard time finding a dish that isn't delicious - at least, I've never found one!).5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSleek, sexy... and sushi!This was our second time dining at Melange; both times we decided to eat at the bar. The restaurant has nice ambiance and the bar area especially is sleek and sexy. The regular menu looks great with very interesting options; however, we just had to order again from the excellent sushi menu. Service was excellent as well. A great night all around!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect, NOTHINGEverything was perfect, NOTHING could have been better.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food and atmosphereWe will definitely be returning to Melange! The food was AMAZING. We had the rock with tuna as an appetizer, a house salad and had sushi and a veg week fish entree. Honestly it was one of our most memorable and delicious dining experiences.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodI have been here numerous times and it is always delicious. The tuna and duck nachos for appetizers are superb. All of the entrees are good. Will definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went withMy husband and I went with another couple. It was very dark and hard to read the menu but the staff have little lights to use until your eyes adjust to the lighting. The lighting felt romantic and intimate after our eyes adjusted and we all enjoyed ourselves. The service was great and the food delicious. The goat cheese ice cream was a tasty surprise. We had a wonderful dinner together. We will definitely return to Melange.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little spot right downtown.The basement location is quickly forgotten as you enter the cozy dining room, especially if you are seated in one of the curved booths. Food is diverse and delicious. Visited on half off wine night which I really should keep secret as it might draw a crowd. Nice service too.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and ambiance.Great food, service and ambiance. When the music started playing in the bar, it got quite loud and we found it hard to carry on a conversation. Fortunately, we had finished our meal and left to find a quieter spot. We'd love to come back but will make earlier reservations the next time.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chilean sea bass was veryThe chilean sea bass was very good. Great wine list.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent andService was excellent and so was the food. We will definitely plan a return trip to try more of the sushi and dinners. Sea bass and stuffed shrimp were both great.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Anniversary DinnerFood was amazing! My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance and amazing service. The sushi is some of the best in town and for desert we tried the sorbet/ice cream sampler. We were cutting it close for a movie we wanted to see but, in the end, we just decided to stay and enjoy ourselves rather than rush out. We highly recommend Melange!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery steady in qualityWe went with three generations...ages 22-80. The food does not disappoint. Service staff know how to pace the meal, and are not afraid to give an opinion about the menu. It is modern and dark, in a lower level. Parking is always an issue for Main St. restaurants. There are vegetarian entrees, as well as fish, beef, and poultry. There is something for everyone. It's wonderful that there are reservations available.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI've always had great serviceI've always had great service and fantastic food at Melange. My group sizes range from 2 people to 10 people and the service is always wonderful.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
