For the price, the food was nothing special and my salad was disappointing. Had to send back an order of fries because they were limp and cold. The time between ordering and receiving our food was 40 minutes. The waiter was nice, but one of my biggest pet peeves is that he reached over me several times to refill drinks instead of asking for the glass. Armpit in my face is not appetizing. The restaurant had few occupants at the time of our luncheon, however we were all placed at tables, literally on-top of each other. Lastly, the menu says Gluten Free options +, however, there are no + symbols on the menu. When I asked the waiter if they offered GF buns, pasta or even corn tortillas for the fish tacos, none of these are available. Why is this even on the menu? Bathroom was clean, close to structure parking.

I am a frequent diner at Knights - came here with my family on 11/27/17 to celebrate my birthday at my favorite restaurant. The service was terrible! It has always been stellar before. The server (#175 also noted as "walkup") was worse than bad. Forgot parts of the meal. And one of the meals (identical salad as another order at our table) was delivered, by itself 15 minutes before the rest of the meals. Was not the birthday meal I was hoping for. We will return - as it is my favorite restaurant - but will not want to be put at server 175 - Walkup's table!

This was our first time in your restaurant. Came in for my Mother's Birthday (who is a picky picky guest lol) and you guys nailed it. Frankie was fantastic. I called the day of my reservation and asked for a booth and 2 specific appetizers to be fired upon arrival. The manager I spoke with was very accommodating to this. Steaks cooked to perfection. My Mother said it was one of her best birthday experiences EVER! Can stop raving! Great job to all!! We'll absolutely be back!

Ok food. Salads came on top of the appetizers. Had to ask three times for bread which was offered to us and then didn’t show. Had to ask twice for the wine after ordered. Too rushed. Better for lunch.

I am a big fan of Knights. Always great food and service. This time I was a little disappointed with our server. The restaurant was not crowded yet he rarely checked on us. Our beverages were not refreshed and my husband actually had to walk up to the bar to get our servers attention. I would still recommend this restaurant. This is the first time I can say I was not pleased with the service. It’s normally very good.

Loved this place! Found this place by accident but very happy we did. We sat at the bar for a drink until our table was ready (we were early) , it was crowded but didn’t feel that stuffy. I wasn’t a fan of the beer I tried but after we were seated, the bartender came to make sure I didn’t want the rest before he tossed it. We had a wonderful waitress, I few bad I don’t remember her name. We tried oysters for the first time and they were strangely fantastic. Our waitress led us in the right direction and helped us learn what we needed to to try them. We both ordered steaks. They were good, not the best we have ever had but still good. My husband ordered the truffle fries and they were the best we have had. Such a great atmosphere, we can’t wait to go back. A little to pricey for us to make this our only date place but we will go back hopefully every few dates!

Interesting food specials, decent wines by the glass and fair prices. Convenient to events in campus area. They bring a bottle of water to your table so you don't have to hunt wait staff for a refill. Only downer is when restaurant is full noise level makes it impossible to carry on a conversation.

Dinner with an old friend; we'd been there before. Knights is such an Ann Arbor institution that I really wouldn't want anything changed, although the TV screens are perhaps a bit obtrusive.

We came to Knights for the first time for my birthday celebration. We brought the kids and had them try shrimp cocktail and creme brulee for the first time. Drinks were plentiful and strong just like we like them! The food and service was truly amazing - even for my husband who is particular about his meat and cocktails! It was very full, and a little noisy, being a Friday night, although we did arrive at 5:15 and leave about 7:15. We will definitely come again.

One tiny thing: There was one dairy-free item on the dessert list that I could have, but it wasn't something I prefer, so I did skip dessert.

We were 45 minutes late for our reservation due to construction on US 23 and were seated immediately. Steaks were fine and service was excellent. Very busy and relatively high noise level, but that seems to be the case almost everywhere today.

We had a reservation 6:45. We arrived at 6:15. Myself, husband two Michigan students(architecture and pre-med, football team, tight end, 6’8”). We weren’t seated until 6:46. ThAt was fine. Seater was arrogant. We followed her to seat. (I had asked when we would be seated, she got me) Indescribable. 24” square table, by kitchen, server computer, stairs, bathroom, glass separation from bar. Oh, forgot kitchen door. We laughed and said, at least food would be hot. Oh, football player is 6’8”, grandfather’s back was stroked numerous times. all of the servers were fulfilling orders. Server nice. Bill was $170.00. We wanted a great experience. We felt cheated. We tipped nicely.

Service was great, but, it's a college bar, they probably try a little too hard. Host staff was rude and condincending .... why? You're not a 5 star Times Square location. I'll pass it off as college aged fantasy dazed college girls as hostesses. Very cute, but dumbshits. On the other hand, our at table service was outstanding... great food and service. Probably just the hostess, real amateur... horrible..i would give a 5 star, but the arrogance and rudeness of the 19 year old hostess will probably not have us returning. I work at Mott, a UM grad, so is my wife.. she came back for homecoming. We will always return to A2... just not Knights... sorry. GO BLUE!!
