Great as usual. Our server
Great as usual. Our server was especially good. It was St. Patrick's Day so brunch was Irish themed and yummy. Of course, had to top it off with an Irish coffee!

Waiter never introduced himself
Waiter never introduced himself and didn't offer up the evening's specials. Food was very good but wasn't thrilled with the coffee. Seems trivial, but when everything else is very good and the last thing you remember is that the coffee was lousy, your impression of the restaurant drops.

The food was meticulously
The food was meticulously prepared. The complimentary bread that I usually try to avoid was good - too good - and it was served with an outstanding fresh hummus. We ordered oysters for starters and they were what you would expect. I had a delicious muffuletta for my main course, my companions had steak and gumbo. The wine list was decent but overpriced, and a 2010 Cab showed up instead of the 2009 we ordered. We were distracted when the waitress brought it over and we didn't notice. I was in the right mood for the play list - mostly 70's tunes I rarely hear (Ain't No Sunshine). It was loud though. The place was busy, but not packed, and my waitress could not hear me from my seat on the interior of a booth!

The food and service were
The food and service were both lovely. One of our guests was in a wheelchair and she was easily accommodated. We were allowed to stay at our table for as long as we liked without feeling a pressure to order more food. Great experience.

We celebrated my daughter's graduation from UM at the Quarter Bistro! We could not have been happier! We were running 1/2 hour earlier than our 2:00 reservations, so I called and asked if we could come at 1:30 instead and they said no problem. They were very accommodating! We had to wait a little while for our waiter, but otherwise the service was excellent and the food was outstanding! We definitely will go there again and we recommended it to our friends!

The theme was Caribbean Islands and I was nervous about that but everything was very good.

My first time at The Quarter Bistro and I was pleasantly surprise. The interior was nice with low lighting. The menu had a nice selection and the service was outstanding. Also food serving was generous you will walk out with something in your hands.

Great Cajun Dining!
I am from the South and my family is originally from Louisiana, so I grew up on Cajun food, and this is the best I've had outside of the South. Great food and made great left overs too. We went for restaurant week so I had the catfish beignets (which was really just fried catfish bites), the Louisiana Brisket, and the Q Bread Pudding. The portions were very good (pretty big, surprisingly) and the food was great! The brisket was excellent and the red beans (with andouille sausage) were surprisingly flavorful. The potatoes were pretty average as were the hush puppies, but they weren't bad by any standard. The Q bread pudding was homemade and it was also very good. Overall, definitely a good dining experience. I will definitely be back!

We went to Quarter Bistro for Father's Day however they have the brunch set up every Sunday. It was a decent selection of food (buffet) and what was nice is that each time we went up there was something different. For example the first we went to the buffet there was French toast sticks and the second time was mini waffles with toppings. The only thing that made it not great was the service. Our waitress seemed to have a chip on her shoulder and was very cold. Otherwise food was great, ambience was great.

Great food all around
Great experience from beginning to end. The bread was unique and hot out of the oven and the hummus went great with it. Catfish beignets were an exemplary appetizer. Extensive and tasty cocktail list. And the entrees were phenonemal. My girlfriend loved the ribs and I loved the brisket. The sides with our entrees were also delicious. And the Spumoni Cheesecake finished it off perfectly. Would love to go back to try more on the menu.

The special room - very nice!
We made a reservation for eight. We were very happy to find that they set up their small room for us! This room is part of the dinning area separated by a wall of glass that creates a special feeling. Everything was perfect - food, service, environment. It was a wonderful evenIng!

Brunch is great....many selections!
Never would've thought to come here for brunch, but our entire group was pleasantly surprised and stuffed when we left. Definitely will be back! Service was great!

Thank you for a very nice experience, especially for our Savannah guests.

Really loved the who look of the place inside and out. It's deff upperclass. For me dinner entres were more like $$$ as opposed to $$ though. We ordered the Oysters Rockafeller and Ahi Tuna Tar Tar for appetizers. They were my favorite part of the meal! I had a fried oyster poboy, and my wife had the the signature sirloin. Both were pretty tasty. I'd deff come back.

Great (except the stuffed mushrooms
We loved this place! Reasonable prices, great soups, fresh bread on the table. We loved the fried catfish (light, crispy and not greasy), crab cakes, gumbo soup, spinach chorizzo soup, and jambalaya. The only thing we didn't like were the stuffed mushrooms. The mushroom flavor didn't go well with the overly sweet stuffing.
We will probably go back for the rest of the food though!

Want a good server
We always ask for Kaylinda, she is a great server.

First visit to the Sunday buffet was good. Great variety and it was themed as Mexican this Sunday but included a graeat variety of other traditional dishes as well. Great table service as well for drinks and non-buffet customers.

Good Brunch for Reasonable Price
This was our second time visiting Quarter Bistro for brunch in the past two years. We weren't quite as wowed this time, probably due to their Italian theme this visit. We enjoyed it better when it was a "general" brunch theme.
Still, food was good, nice variety, good service -- we'll come back.

We originally ate at this restaurant as a family a couple of months ago. We said, at that time, that we would come back to celebrate our anniversary. It is about a 45 minute drive for us, but well worth it!

Everyone in our party informed me that the dining experience was outstanding, the food was excellent and this
statement was from the most "picky" eater in our party. The private room was a surprise and simply perfect.
The wine, the Long Island Ice Tea and dessert was awesome. We will return.

Excellent ambiance, great service, and well-prepared food.

Great brunch selections
The selections range from your standard eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy and biscuits, french toast, omelette station to lunch variety of chicken, fish, vegetable medley, along with cocktail shrimp and raw oysters. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I had brunch at Quarter Bistro, and I loved it the second time. There's a fruit and salad bar, as well as a variety of desserts along with their raspberry pancake tower (yum!).
The crusted fish was bland and too done on Sunday, and seemed like it was in the steamer too long. The roast beef was good, but I prefer medium rare, so if that can be an option, or just not have it so well done. There was no pink in my slices.
Definitely would recommend coming for brunch here again!

I think the food choices were great. Although Ann Arbor has tons of restauranrs, you're pretty much selecting the same cuisines, just different places. The Quarter Bistro adds a different flavor to the mix and I really enjoyed my meal.

We tried to make a reservation at a well-known restaurant near the Quarter Bistro but were unable to get one. They
suggested your restaurant. Having never heard of it, we were a little skeptical. However we were very pleased with what we ordered. The soup, salad, burger and eggplant parmesan were all very tasty and fresh. My husband and I thoroughly
enjoyed the meal, even the rolls and hummus dip. We told our Ann Arbor relatives about it, and they agreed that it is a good
value for your money. The noise level was high but it was the day of the Ohio State - Michigan game. We would definitely return.

The entire experience was excellent. We were so happy to be in a separate room. If not then the noise would have been horrible for our group. It was a perfect night!
