The ambiance at Cafe Felix
The ambiance at Cafe Felix is warm and charming; it feels very European. We were seated by the window, giving us a nice streetscape view. The service was friendly and attentive. My husband ordered a martini , which he proclaimed excellent, and I tried an unusual wine (Picpoul de Pinet) which is now my favorite white. Our entrees included scallops, which were tender and moist with a crisp golden sear, and duck breast with caramelized apples and cauliflower "risotto" -- also delectable. The only complaint of the evening was that my husband's potato side dish was not piping hot. Aside from that, it was one of the most satisfying restaurant meals we've had for a long time.

Pretty Good service. Have to say I was moderately impressed.. Food was alright to say the least. I had a good time. Girlfriends birthday! Gave her a diamond necklace. She loved it!! Not much the place to be dropped off by Limo. Be good for a lunch or evening drink with some food. Fun time!!

A wonderful place for dinner!
My first dining experience here and it was great! Food was fresh and appropriately portioned. Desserts were amazing. Got lucky as it was Saturday night and the noise level was very low (and most tables were filled). I accidentally left the restaurant with the merchant's copy of the receipt. The restaurant kindly telephoned me to ask permission to charge my credit card as they didn't want to do that without my approval. Now that's service! I'll be back to Cafe Felix soon!!!

Definitely a brunch to write home about! My only disappointment was that I wasn't able to try more of the dishes before filling up.

I had a great dinner at Cafe
I had a great dinner at Cafe Felix. I had never been to that restaurant before, but regularly visit lots of Ann Arbor's best. Cafe Felix now holds a place at the top of my personal list and I will not hesitate to recommend it to my friends as a place to go for special occasions. I enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and attentive service. The food was incredible.

Great place which has really put its best foot forward in the dining room. This place used to be a no-go for dinner. That has changed dramatically, with great drinks, food, and service.

Great food, they were out of some things and the menu wasn't up to date, but that was due to the changing of the seasons. A little on the pricey side, but everything was great!

We were in Ann Arbor for UM
We were in Ann Arbor for UM graduation, a very busy weekend. We had reservations for Sunday brunch and were seated immediately upon arrival. We chose to sit outside; tables are on the wide sidewalk, so not a particularly scenic view, but good people watching. The breakfast buffet was good, but not outstanding. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Would not necessarily go there for a "special" day out, but this was a good way to end our weekend.

My first time for dinner here was on Mother's Day and I ordered the scallops...wow, it was wonderful! We also had an affordable wine that was very good. I would recommend Cafe Felix without any hesitation!

Café Felix has a comfortable, casual French bistro feel that is welcoming. The staff and atmosphere make it easy to unwind, relax, enjoy good drinks and delicious food without feeling rushed. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

Food very good
My meal at Cafe Felix was excellent. The restaurant was not crowded (which is why we went there), but if they keep serving food this good, they will be. Much better than I remember Cafe Felix being a few years ago

Amazing Lunch at Café Felix!
Wow! My husband and I enjoyed what was most likely the best lunch we have ever had in our lives at Café Felix this past Saturday.
The food was incredibly well prepared and delicious. I had the French Onion Soup was even better than I've had in France! My husband raved about his Crab Cakes and Croque Madame. I also had the Salmon Crepes - divine! The service was very attentive and friendly. We will be back very soon...and often!

Nice and simple
The setting was nice. Cocktails were flavorful. Food portions were very tasty although a big small given the prices. Desserts were very good. Recommended, but a little pricey.

Great date (splurge)
Meal was excellent. Food well done in every regard (flavor, texture, creativity, portion). Appropriately on the expensive side, though if you want, maybe get a cheaper drink afterwards (cocktails very good but very pricey and add up!).

My wife had had some C surgery at the U of M and we stayed in Ann Arbor over night. After reading many restaurant reviews we decided on Café Felix. The food was perfect and reminded us very much of France and the wonderful restaurants and cafe's there. We had a wonderful table in the back, while it was small it is typical of the French style restaurant seating. They have an exceptional, but small wine list. Nicole was our waitperson and did an exceptional job.
The appetizers were wonderful (Maybe a bit on the big side) and the Steak-Frite and Braised Short Ribs were delicious and just the right size. We finished with apple compote which was wonderful as well. Next time we are in town we will be back. Thanks for the wonderful evening

I have been coming to Ann Arbor for about 7 or 8 years while the niece has been in undergrad and med school and we have been to a number of the restaurants in town. This was the best dining experience we have had in Ann Arbor, or anywhere in Michigan. The only place that comes close for overall experience and value is Webers, which is very different. This is a French restaurant, done well.
With five of us, we had five entree's, a couple of appetizers and four deserts and the bill was reasonable and all of us thought it was great. And, our waiter was very good. Nice, knowledgeable and just the right amount of attentive.
Keep in mind that the room is loud, so there will be problems if your group is large. It's fine for two to six people.

We have been to Cafe Felix
We have been to Cafe Felix twice for dinner and the food has been fabulous both time. I would reccomend the short ribs! They were fall off the bone fabulous!

Classic French Bistro!
We really enjoyed the outdoor cocktails in October! Several folks had their dogs with them, very Parisian, and the staff brought the pups bowls of water, sweet. The service was very attentive,The entrées where generous and tasty, The atmosphere is very Colonial French, we loved it. We will be back!!!
10/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent croissants, good atmosphere. My salmon crepe is not tasty at all, but just the croissants are enough to warrant my visit in the future.

Great food and service
We had brunch at Cafe Felix on a day when they were obviously very busy. Despite the crowd they were wonderful from the hostess at the door , to Felix who made up our table, and our waiter who was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The food was of course delicious and well prepared in typical Cafe Felix style, with a European flair despite being in the middle of Michigan. We can't wait to go back!
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very nice place
Cafe Felix has a beautiful set up. Its cozy without being stuffy. They have a wonderful cocktail list and their food is really good. Overall, this place is a gem on main!

Quaint French Dining for Less
Ate for the first time here this past Friday, and had a great experience. Service was very good, and the food very tasty. The prices were very reasonable. Great for a date or a casual dinner! Would return and recommend.

Fine food, great service!
In my opinion, the food selection at Felix is a little less than excessive, which is really not a bad thing as long as you know what you want. Getting past this stage, the rest, such as food quality and ambience, are definitely above average at this restaurant, in particular the service of the waitresses. Our waitress, for instance, has a top-notch welcoming yet professional manner that we seldom see in other comparable or even better places.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Cafe Felix to my peers, especially if they are looking for a special place to celebrate. Not to mention that the wine list here is abundant, certain to satisfy most wine seeking couples.

We had Sunday brunch at Cafe Felix and were delighted with the food. The restaurant itself is a charming bistro with a very European flair. The brunch spread was modest in size, but had a full range of offerings--more than anyone needs--and everything we tried was delicious. Made to order omelettes; bacon, sausage, ham; fresh waffles with all the toppings and cherry French toast; fresh-baked pastries; yogurt, fruit, and Greek yogurt; lox and accompaniments; ravioli and vegetable "lasagna"; plus a couple desserts; and mimosas. We were seated up front by the windows and closest to the door so felt a cold draft every time the door opened--the only drawback of the experience.
