Mercy's has consistent great
service and food. My husband and I go just for their hamburgers...they are the best in the area as far as we are concerned."

I was dazzled by the high quality
and low price of drinks and appetizers during Happy Hour. This is a nice way to enjoy Mercy's on a weeknight at an affordable price,"

If I call Mercy's "reliable" it
sounds like an insult. However, what I mean is that everything comes out the way you'd expect it to. The food isn't cold, it tastes like it's supposed to, the service is good -- in every way, it seemed that we got what we thought we should. I asked the waiter to help me decide between two items and he was helpful in his honest opinion about which dish would be more appropriate to what I was looking to eat (I hate it when waiters say that "it's all good, here!). If I were to have a business meal or want to take someone out on a romantic meal, on a meal where I want everything to be good and to have peace of mind on this, I would definitely pick Mercy's."

The food was fairly good but the
service was impossibly slow. The restaurant is usually not open on Sunday nights but they opened to accommodate an after concert crowd. They obviously did not have enough kitchen and wait staff and we waited for our dinner for well over an hour. We will not be returning to Mercy's."

My first time at Mercy's. The food
and service was excellent, but the place needed some updates. Pet peeve of mine is restaurant bathrooms...if the bathroom is clean and in order then I feel everything else is too...well their bathrooms needed updated,repaired and better cleaning. Besides all that, there was free Valet parking which was great. Food was prepared beautifully and tastefully. Great place for a romantic dinner. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food they serve. I would recommend."

There was a minor miscommunication
it seemed, and our chicken wings came out sauced instead of having the sauce on the side, which was difficult for my partner to eat because the sauce was spicy. Our server was extremely kind about the issue and fixed it immediately. He was pleasant and he was professional. Overall, it was an excellent experience. Perfect place for our Valentine's day."

Great staff and a very comfortable
setting. Tables are spaced out very nicely so you don't feel like you part of someone else's party. Food was very good. Pork Belly appetizer was more like pork roast but tasty. Beet salad was excellent and both of our entrees were very good. We thought the meal was a good value."
Dined on 2/8/2014
I went with a group of friends,
and we were all pleased with our orders. I had duck breast, caesar salad, and creme caramel. All were delicious. My only quibble is that the waiter said the duck was normally prepared medium rare, but my serving seemed more like rare. Fortunately, I like it either way, so this is not a complaint. Our waiter, Matt, was outstanding. He was around just the right frequency, neither too often nor too rarely. Mercy's is not inexpensive, but it's worth the price for a special occasion."

Mercy's has gotten better than
ever. We loved the new brussel sprouts appetizer, the mussels, fresh catch of the day was excellent trout with a fresh spinach side that set off the flavors perfectly. We had an early curtain too and the service was timely yet gracious."
Dined on 1/31/2014
Everything was really great about
this restaurant - with the exception that the service was SLIGHTLY slow. Food a fabulous, Setting and Ambiance was something I ha not expected. Highly recommend. They also took care of a special request for a member in wheel chair. Great experience."

We had dinner here before the Folk
Festival. Our waiter made sure we got to the show on time without sacrificing anything about the great meal -- much appreciated!"
Dined on 2/1/2014
A great place to catch up with
friends after work over drinks and lots of tasty appetizers. Don't miss the crispy brussels sprouts with sweet cherries! The live jazz duet makes Thursdays special (6-7:30)."

Best meal yet and thats saying
something since that food here is alway fantastic. I had the GF lamb shank which was deep in flavor and falling off the bone. They were very happy to substitute the dairy item on the plate with sweet potato for my allergy. Partner had the whole fried trout, again amazing with fresh thyme and lemon in the cavity. They are so good to folks with food allergies, it has been a life saver for me. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the deep fried chickpeas as a munchies in place of the bread, SO GOOD OMG. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY"

The food has got progressively
worse since I visited the restaurant a few years back to the point that food was sooooo salty I stopped eating after 2 bites. I would not go back or recommend it to anyone."
Dined on 1/26/2014
The place was packed, but the
staff and kitchen did their best and accommodated us, giving us time to get to our concert after dinner."
Dined on 1/25/2014
A really popular "before the
theater" dinner place in Ann Arbor. Very crowded and noisy on the night of a show, but the service and food were wonderful. Will be back again!"
Dined on 1/25/2014
We happened to go there for a 4
course meal on new years eve. The menu was fabulous. the food was delicious. The combinations of flavors were amazing. Needless to say we had a great meal."
Dined on 12/31/2013
We opted to try Mercy's for
Restaurant Week. We were not given bread plates (but recieved bread), my appetizer arrived fried as opposed to steamed (as the waiter had recommended) and the salmon was bland with unseasonsed white rice and overcooked red/yellow peppers. The dish had no cohesion other than they arrived on the same plate. The ambiance was not sophisticated with framed posters and old carpet. Then, the coat rack system was pretty sad- the little paper markers probably cost $2 for a pack of 100, but they had re-written the numbers on the tags so many times, they could not identify the number. We were underwhelmed and will not be returning."
Dined on 1/17/2014
This is a spectacular restaurant.
Great food and service. Not too crazy busy, even on a football weekend, I believe because most of the dining scene is on Main Street. This is an awesome place for a dinner if you're visiting campus. Associated with an upscale boutique hotel."
Dined on 10/18/2013
We had a lovely dinner from the
restaurant week menu. The grilled pork belly with kimchi was excellent. The turkey dumplings were okay -- nothing special. My husband had the onion soup, and it was very flavorful. I had the coconut curry soup, and it was quite good, although I think it could have been a bit more balanced. For the main course, my husband got the ribeye. It was an incredibly generous portion and cooked perfectly. I hesitated before ordering the gnocchi because the last time I ordered gnocchi at another restaurant they were gooey and awful. The gnocchi at Mercy's restored my love of gnocchi. They were light little pillows of goodness with lots of butternut squash and mushrooms. We will definitely be going back to Mercy's."

We had a great meal the other
night at Mercy's. Because we were worried about the snow, we went to an afternoon movie and then to an early dinner afterwards. Mercy's was quiet (it was early), but we were met with enthusiam by the staff and they were extremely helpful with wine choices We had potstickers and the beet salad for starters; linguini with clams and gnocchi for our main courses. Sorry I don't remember exactly the names of the dishes. Everything was excellent as was the coffee at the end. Had a wonderful dinner and great night."
Dined on 1/4/2014
Food and drinks were great.
Service was on top of their game. Food was a little pricey though, we might go for happy hour next time and just try some of the appetizers."
Dined on 12/31/2013
Service was impeccable, and it is
a lovely place for a meal. I assumed the lack of diners in the restaurant the night we were there could be blamed on the snow and hazardous travel conditions. While my partner's fish special was delicious, my bouillabaisse was a bit too salty."
Dined on 12/14/2013
This is a great restaurant
convenient to Hill Auditorium. The menu is interesting and the food delicious and beautifully presented. The ambiance is upscale, but friendly. The noise level was a little high the last time I dined there. The wait staff is aware of serving customers in a timely manner for attending performances. I would recommend Mercy's whether or not attending a performance at Hill."
Dined on 12/13/2013
Mercy's is well located for
theatre goers. We had eaten at the previous restaurant at that location and were looking forward to an intimate evening with friends. Unfortunately, conversation was difficult as it was very loud, which brought the mood down. Our waiter was pleasant and we were greeted by a lovely hostess. I would go back again for the food if they did something to remedy the noise level but until then, we'll dine elsewhere."

Our waiter Matt was Terrific! He
really knew what he what he was serving!"
Dined on 12/3/2013
We had a couple of appetizers -
Korean pork belly and the dumplings - which were absolutely delicious, along with our entrees. I had the gnocchi and my husband had the steak frites - I also tried some of the clam linguine from another person at our table, which was fantastic. I would love to come back here!"
Dined on 11/29/2013
My husband and I had dinner at
Mercy's last night. We had the walleye special, which was very good. I like their bread, and we split a salad, also tasty. The only thing that missed the mark a bit was the dessert. For some reason, we had to wait quite awhile to get it so I figured they would be baking the brownie for the brownie/ice cream combo. The brownie was room temperature and not overly generous for an $8 charge. I would check out another dessert in the future."

An excellent meal with good
service. We were able to book at short notice at a busy time."
Dined on 11/8/2013
We have always loved the ambiance,
& warm welcome at Mercy's. We are very appreciative of the new chefs talents & the way the menu has been redesigned to fit the way folks eat now. Our crowd loves being able to share the tasty appetizers & then select either a small plate or large plate according to our personal needs. We find the portion sizes continue to be generous even in the small plates & the gourmet touches of seasoning, sauces & sides are of a consistently delicious quality no matter which category you are choosing from. The last two times we took a group there everyone was thrilled with their selections. My husband &I also enjoy stopping in, sitting at the bar, sharing an appetizer & some of their excellent cocktails too."
Dined on 11/3/2013
The menu is varied enough so that
there are many choices. My dinner was very good, but others in my party were not as pleased with their entrees. The night's special, for example, turned out to be a very small portion. We were going to a concert after dinner, and our waiter, after several reminders, made sure that we were served with enough time to have dessert."
Dined on 10/26/2013
A perfect place for a pre-concert
meal, situated in the shadow of Hill Auditorium.....but with food, service, and ambience so good that it's a great destination for any occasion."
Dined on 10/26/2013
Doormen and host were very
friendly. Atmosphere is nice, warm and welcoming. Those were the best things. Table was not stable, drinks rocked with just a fingertip touch. Waiter was rude and unwilling to provide suggestions or explanations about the beer on tap and menu items (like we were bothering him). Appetizers were tasty, but small. Salads were okay. Scallops were lukewarm and undercooked and burgers were just average. Presentation was sloppy, not pretty. I hope our dismal experience was a fluke, but I'm guessing not...too many things wrong. Wouldn't have written a bad review if it was only one thing, but there were just too many flaws. Sorry Mercy's, really wish you had lived up to our expectations."

Tucked into the Bell Tower Inn is
the white table-clothed dining room of Mercy's. Lovely ambiance yet still had the Michigan v Indiana game so local patrons could stay appraised of the game. Valet parking, extensive menu choices and an accommodating bartender made this a perfect restaurant choice for our pre-theater evening."
Dined on 10/20/2013
Buttery soft yet crispy salmon was
outstanding. Service and food is the best in town, and believe me we have been everywhere. This is our go to place because of the gluten free, vegan menu! You will love it. I mean GF tempura scrimp! Come on really, soooo good."
Dined on 10/17/2013
Just steps away from Hill
Auditorium this quiet retreat was a new find for my wife and me. With a great bar, light fare, and intriguing desserts, its the perfect pre concert dinner or after concert dessert and coffee spot."

Three of us had dinner on a friday
night of UM homecoming weekend and unfortunately it was only half full. I wish they would have seated everyone in one area to increase the buzz. we started with three wonderful martinis and carrot salads were refreshing. We had three different entrees - the special was a roasted lamb shank that was superb with a fabulous wine reduction, Pan Seared Scallops with lobster jus, spicy sausage and saffron risotto was very good, but the surprise was the Pan-Seared Boneless Chicken Breast with lemon-soy reduction, which was fabulous - I don't usually order chicken in restaurants, but my guest ordered this and I was delighted to get a taste. Pinot Noir by the glass for $9 was very nice with the Lamb."

It was quite enjoyable. Their
steak was nice, it's pretty quiet, and they have really good bread, which is complementary."
Dined on 10/6/2013
If you're looking for a
convenient, solid dining experience on the east-side of downtown AA, check out Mercy's next to the Bell Tower. Complimentary valet is a major bonus that reduces parking hassles. Ambiance is quiet so conversation is easy. Order starters as there are some of the best items."

Not very busy at all but should
be!! Service was great, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was lovely. Celebrated my friend's birthday and they treated her well! Also took good care of her gluten allergy. More people need to know about this place!!"
