Contemporary American
LOGAN Restaurant opened in November 2004, with a commitment to providing Ann Arbor a unique and truly sensational dining experience. We are a small, independently owned and operated business. As such, we feel we can be attentive to the small details that separate great restaurants from the rest. For example, Chef-Owner Thad Gillies and his staff prepare from scratch each day the culinary components that are the base of everything we do. When they combine these elements for your dining pleasure, they transcend the French cooking techniques used to create them, in fact, they also transcend the many culinary traditions our kitchen draws from to create our “New American Cuisine”. Great food alone does not make a great dining experience, though; we feel that great wine, beer, and spirits are an essential part of that experience, as well. We are seek to offer you the very best of all of these we can obtain, always with a focus on excellent value.

Another great experience for Restaurant Week here, and the courses complimented each other perfectly (along with the wine pairings). The only slight thing I noticed was the atmosphere was a little rushed...but based on the quality and number of customers, I'm not too surprised.

The food is fabulous, that being said the decor and atmosphere is not up to a high standard. Its not at all cozy and also is very loud. If I go out for a fine dining experience and my chair is next to a wall of coats that does not ooze charm. An interior makeover and this could be the hottest place in town.

Overall the service is good most times we eat there, however this time was exceptional. And I don't mean it in a good way. We arrived on time for our reservation, as we were celebrating a Birthday. We were greeted by the hostess and seated at our table without any recognition of the Birthday. This wouldn't be the first time that it was overlooked (including other restaurants), so we let it go. However, our server did not come to the table for approximately 15 minutes. When he approached our table, he asked us if we wanted something to drink. He never introduced himself nor did we even know he was our server. I asked him if he was our server and he says "yes, I am" and I told him "oh, I never thought you would arrive to our table." His immediate response,"we've been very busy and things are now starting to slow down". Really?! Totally unprofessional, irrelevant, and this restaurant only seats maybe 50-60 people! Don't quote me on that, however it's a very small restaurant. We mentioned a Birthday celebration and asked questions regarding the menu items and the server seemed to be very knowledgeable when it came to that. However, throughout the evening and when we received our bill, we never heard a single Happy Birthday from the server! I found that very odd since we had mentioned it in our conversation with him. As a matter of fact, he did not even offer a Birthday dessert. Service was just ok (I only say that because he was knowledgeableof the menu) but the food is usually very good (thankfully that's what brings us back). If you can overlook the service and pricey menu, than I highly recommended Logan. The unfortunate thing is we notice a high turnover of servers at this restaurant from our own experience of going there for the last 5 years! It's definitely expected in this type of industry and we understand. Let's hope our next visit will be better!

We went for my husband’s 50th birthday dinner and had the 5 course tasting menu and wine flight. The food and wine were perfect from start to finish, and the service was incredible as well. Thank you, Logan, for a beautiful dining experience.

Our second New Years celebration at Logan. We were afraid it wouldn't live up to our first experience and we were thrilled that it surpassed it! The food is imaginative but accessible - incredible combinations of flavors and textures. Wine pairings were sublime. Service attentive and unobtrusive. Best restaurant in Ann Arbor.

Logan continues to hone their craft after 14 years. The duck fritter appetizer, salmon and shrimp pasta dinners were outstanding. Best prepared piece of salmon I have had in a while. Great champagne options. The staff are all friendly, cordial. Timing is great. Always good to see Kevin and get his wine recommendations. We have always liked Logan and it continues to improve.

I called a day in advance to say I was flying in from out of town for a birthday and we wanted to do the chefs tasting, but we had one person allergic to shellfish and tree nuts, however the rest of us wanted the tasting with no restrictions. Then first thing I say at the table to our waiter is verbatim the same thing. Then to the sommelier I asked if we could have a digestif after the meal. Guess what? I was served shellfish and nut restriction tasting. Also they don’t really know food, scallops are not a shellfish yet I had to pay $15 to get the correct tasting that was shown to us for scallops. Then guess what? The sommelier serves us Port instead of the digestive I asked for. Best $500 I’ve ever spent.

It's still a good spot, though perhaps becoming a bit complacent. Service is uneven -- on two recent visits had an extraordinarily able server the first time and on second one who seemed more than a bit befuddled. Food remains very good (though superlatives not justified) and atmosphere is among the very best in Ann Arbor.

I took my mother out for a little mother daughter nice dinner bonding time, and I was definitely not disappointed. This was our first time at Logan, but will not be our last. The manager provided my mother with a glass of wine that was not on the menu that was perfect for her. Our starter, entrees, and deserts were creative, just a little different than fare you would find elsewhere and very delicious! The service was amazing and we felt very taken care of, but not stalked or harassed in any way. The restaurant was just the right noise level: It was not hard to hear each other, but it wasn't library quiet either. We will be back in the future.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the promise of creative quisine. I particularly appreciate the option of half orders, giving me an opportunity to have three courses without feeling like I overate. The smoked white fish spread was very good. A nice wine list too. The problem comes with the service which was poor right from the beginning. A long wait from the appetizer on. Most disappointing was that the sever and manager made excuses that really shouldn’t be part of the customer’s problem.....new team member, large party (not ours).
