Blue Llama was an amazing experience. The food left us speechless. Our meals had so much creativity, flavor, and flare. Our waitress was very lovely. She made some great menu recommendations. I love the vibe of the restaurant - classy, but not stuffy. The live music was top-notch. This was definitely the best food/entertainment experience I’ve had. 5 stars, hands down.

A cool vibe: you could be in New York City. Interesting food and great drinks, but a bit pricey. It is an intimate room: no bad seats. There is a great sound system.
Thank you for your feedback! We're thrilled you enjoy our intimate setting and quality sound system. We constructed our stage to mirror the quality of the great Dizzy's Jazz Club. If you find our dinner menu to be too pricy, you may find more value in our Happy Hour menu. Available Wed-Sat 5-6:30pm, we offer skewers, $1 oysters, and so much more!
The food, ambiance, service, and the entertainment are always fantastic.
Thank you for the 5-star review, Dawn! We're thrilled you enjoyed our entire dining and listening venue, and we hope you'll visit us again soon.
Great place for JAZZ music. Have been 4 times. Nice cocktails and wine list. Have not had food yet. Seems a bit pricy. Deserts are awesome. Cool atmosphere. Love the lighted ceiling. Plan to go again soon and enjoy the Happy Hour menu.
We're thrilled to hear that you've visited us 4 times now! Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to serving you a taste of our menu with our incredible Happy Hour dishes and drink specials. See you soon!
Incredible food, music, and service.
A night to remember and it wasn't even a ticketed show. This place is the real deal.

This is an upscale jazz club, and much needed in Ann Arbor! Great place to go for a first time or anytime date or evening out.

Amazing experience. The food is art. The music is one of the best jazz spots in the Midwest.
Thank you for the incredible review and valued feedback. We're honored to be considered one of the best jazz spots in the Midwest! We hope you'll visit again soon - be sure to subscribe for updates so you'll never miss the next big performance at our club.
Great food! Great music! Great service! Being a younger individual the price definitely hurts but it’s nice to come in on occasion to witness the talent both in food production and in music!
Thank you for the outstanding review, Michael! We're thrilled you've enjoyed our live music and American Shared Plates. You may find our new Happy Hour appealing. Available Wed. - Sat. from 5-6:30pm, we feature $1 Baked Oysters, delicious exclusive happy hour skewers, and drink specials on wine, bottles, and cocktails.
Food portions were small - so even though menu looks reasonably priced, a meal is actually not cheap. But it's a hip interior and the live jazz was fun. It felt a little too loud, such that I couldn't talk to my wife while the band was playing.
Thank you for your feedback, Kevin. I'll be sure to share your comments with my team so we can elevate your dining experience next time. You may find more value in our Happy Hour specials, available Wednesday-Saturday from 5-6:30pm. We offer exciting new dishes like $1 Baked Oysters and drink pairings such as our $6 Straight Then Chaser. We hope you'll visit again soon.
First time I have been to this restaurant and jazz club. The food and drinks are a little expensive, but the atmosphere makes up for it. The room is very elegant, and the music was excellent on my visit. The service was excellent, and so was the food. For brunch small plates are on the menu, and you will need a side dish or two to get full. All in all I’m very happy that Blue Llama is here, it’s a great addition to the music scene in Ann Arbor.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled you enjoyed our American Shared Plates menu. We generally recommend guests order 2-3 shared plates per person to get the full dining experience. You may find more value in our new Happy Hour (available Wed-Sat from 5-6:30pm). We offer exciting specials like our $1 Baked Oysters and wine pairings. We hope you'll visit again soon!
Service was subpart, our waitress seemed rather annoyed with us most of the night for not getting food immediately or just some simple drinks. However, the group on the stand was great and overall the atmosphere was relaxed and fun, will definitely come again
Thank you for your feedback, Edward. We're excited to hear that you enjoyed the live music on stage and found our atmosphere inviting and elegant. I'll share your comments with our team so we can improve your experience next time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Too bad I can't put both yes and no in the same answer. Don't go to the Blue Llama club if you're looking for good, but overpriced, food. The food isn't that good and is way overpriced. Everything is too salty. Everything. Portions are too small for the price charged. One of my dining mates and I had the lamb chops. Two small (for Colorado lamb) rib chops for $45 just isn't a deal. Not by any stretch. The other diner had the chicken roulade. Looked more like an appetizer. At $45, those lamb chops had a food cost in the low 20% or high teen range. Not acceptable in a restaurant that has pretentions of serving elegant food along with the wine. Then there was the overly salted salad. I probably had enough salt to last me for a few weeks in this meal. I was not impressed by the kitchen at all.
And the wine list....well, it's what I call a dumb list. I've got a little experience in wine (understatement of 2020) and having a reserve list with very little under $100 is just plain against what selling wine is about. So no, I wouldn't recommend this place for food. There is a glass/bottle list, but it's too short. It takes a lot of effort to make a wine list that can appeal to many people and be reasonably priced. There were far too few reasonable selections on that part of the list. The reserve list is another story. It appeared at first glance that they only chose wines with Robert Parker or The Wine Spectator with scores over 90, didn't taste the wines and really didn't care about value. Value is what makes a wine list great. There wasn't a lot of value there. Then there were the typos... ... ...
Music is another story though. Paul Vornhagen's new (to me anyway) quartet was just cooking along and I loved it. Not too loud, but good musicianship.
Don't go for the food. It's too salty and too overpriced. But the music, if you like jazz, is terrific.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the live music on our stage and found our service to be exceptional. We apologize if our American Shared Plates did not meet your expectations. Our menu was designed to bring the highest quality imported and locally grown ingredients to each dish, resulting in a higher price point. But you may find more value in our Happy Hour menu, where we feature $1 Baked Oysters and drink specials on Wed-Sat from 5-6:30pm.
Thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at the Blue Llama. Atmosphere and music were great and they have some very nice brunch dishes that you would not normally get a normal brunch restaurant. The homemade Bloody Mary's were great.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a glowing review, Dusty! We're thrilled you enjoyed our Sunday Brunch cuisine, atmosphere, and live music. If you loved our craft cocktails, you may want to stop by for our new Happy Hour menu and drink specials on Wednesday-Saturday from 5-6:30pm. We hope to see you again soon!
Great brunch experience. Great jazz music and terrific food!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled you enjoyed our Sunday Brunch with live music. Hopefully you'll think of joining us for Easter, where we'll showcase a unique menu for the special occasion thatll be great for the whole family. See you soon!
Saturday night was absolutely fabulous!!! The Blue Llama was all that people have said it was and more !!! Being there for the debut performance of my dear friend the one and only Ramona Collins was the very best!!!!! The room was fabulous to be in! Ambiance, food, specialty drinks all TOP NOTCH!! From Management to Staff, Waitresses, Waiters, Bartenders, Chef and even the Patrons were fantastic!!! Thanks to Dave, Lisa, Ashley, Richard and everyone who made the evening one to remember...Thank you for a wonderful experience! I can't wait to be back!! Sheila F.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Sheila! We're thrilled you thoroughly enjoyed our dining and listening experience. I'll be sure to share your kind words with the team, and we hope to see you again soon!
What an amazing spot. The ambiance is surreal, the food is divine, and, of course, the music’s fantastic. You don’t need to be a jazz nerd to enjoy this spot. It was my first time, so it may depend on the band playing, but the volume was just quiet enough that you could talk to your table mates without yelling, but just loud enough that you could lose yourself in the music without too much distraction from other conversations around the restaurant. Highly recommend (especially if you have some extra coin).
Thank you for the glowing review, Margaret. We're ecstatic that you enjoy our entire dining and listening venue, from the live music and cuisine to the atmosphere and service. If ever you are craving our cuisine or cocktails, feel free to stop by during our new Happy Hour on Wednesday-Saturday from 5-6:30pm for a great deal on delicious bites and beverages. We hope to see you again soon!
Great to see Jake Reichbart finally playing at the Blue Llama. His trio was terrific! A great show and a really nice brunch. Thank!!
We're thrilled you enjoyed the Jake Reichbart Trio, they were a real treat to have on our stage. Thank you for joining us for our Sunday Brunch, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
It was extra ordinary service. The restaurant was very nice. The jazz music 🎶 was well worth it. The food was delicious and indulging. The service was amazing. This is my first time I admire the service. Well organized. Let you feel important ( believe me I went to so many restaurant including high end hotel experience and it was not compared to my experience with blue lllama Jazz. Because the waitress knew my husband was his birthday she surprised us with dessert when we told her we want the check. It was very sweet of her we didnot expect she would remember it was his birthday. Me and my husband needed this experience and we felt it was worth every penny
Thank you for the kind words, Ramal. We're honored that our service was extraordinary, attentive, and could help make your evening all the more enjoyable. Thank you for choosing to spend your special day at our dining and listening venue. We're thrilled we could help make it special and memorable for the both of you. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Amazing experience. Reserved seating was upgraded. A fun and mystical appetizer was provided compliments of the chef. Orders for the evening were brought in segments through out the performance so it gave us the vibe of a 6 course meal. Best lamb chops I’ve tasted. The group that played , Common Tongue, was exceptional. A powerful quarter with original pieces and a superb channeling of Thelonious Monk. They captivated every second of your attention. By far one of best experiences I’ve had at the start of 2020
Thank you for sharing your outstanding experience with us. We're thrilled you enjoyed all of our cuisine, especially our signature Colorado Lamb Chops. We're honored we could be a part of making 2020 all the more memorable. We hope you'll visit us again soon, perhaps for our Sunday Brunch service with live music.
Great dinner for my wife and me on her birthday. Sharing plates make the experience even sweeter for a couple and the food and service were outstanding. Will definitely go back
Thank you for the outstanding review! We're thrilled we could give you a 5-star dining experience, perfect for any special event or date night, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. If you don't have Valentine's Day plans yet, we are offering a romantic dinner and show package ft. Detroit vocalist, Nicole New. Hopefully you can join us for exclusive shared plates and soulful music.
Very enjoyable! Restaurant week special was a great value. Musical entertainment was also a hit. We will return and are looking forward to it.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled you could experience our venue during Restaurant Week, and we look forward to seeing you for another dinner service or our Sunday Brunch service.
Excellent night out. Great service, food and drink, and the music was fantastic. The Keller band is soooo talented and fun to watch and hear. While loud, we could still talk at our table without a problem. This is was our third time there in month, but this time it was Restaurant Week. We thought we had favorites on the menu, but the the RW tasting menu had us try a lot of other items. Nothing was disappointing. This is definitely A2's best place for a night out for good food and entertainment in a refined setting.
Thank you for the wonderful feedback, Rob. We're thrilled you enjoyed your third evening with us in just this month alone! We look forward to your next visit.
We came for the ann arbor restaurant week. There was more food than expected. The food overall was very good with interesting flavors and a couple favorites. The Ribs and the Charcuterie were excellent.
Band was great too. The musicians blended so well together and sound was incredible. the decor was retro cool. i think it would be better a little bit darker during the bands set. Staff attentive, and very friendly. I enjoyed a Paper Plane, actually a couple. Very nice. Didnt mind paying the suggested entertainment fee. I would be interested in some smooth jazz artists at that venue.
Thank you for the outstanding rating, Robert! We're thrilled you enjoyed our Grilled Boneless Berkshire Ribs and Charcuterie Tasting. I'll be sure to share your comments with our Artistic Director, as he starts planning upcoming music performances on our stage. We look forward to your next visit!
We went to hear some local jazz musicians. It happened to be restaurant week. Blue llama offered an excellent tasting menu for a reasonable price. It was just enough food and spaced out over the course of our evening. Everything was delicious! The service was also outstanding. We were happy to leave the suggested cover charge and more for the excellent music. For a night out for jazz and dining, this can’t be beat in the region!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're thrilled you enjoyed our Restaurant Week Menu and live music. We hope t serve you another excellent experience during your next visit. See you soon!
So much deliciousness and Jazz is great. Awesome experience
Thank you for the wonderful review! We're thrilled you enjoyed your dining and listening experience with us, and we look forward to serving you more "deliciousness" and live jazz during your next visit.
Our first time at Blue Llama, we will definitely return! Fabulous service, food, music and ambiance
Thank you for the outstanding rating! We're thrilled you joined us for the first time this past week, and we look forward to serving you another excellent experience again soon.
Such great food, great band, the ambiance was delightful, great sound system and perfect balance for enjoying live music and having a conversation. What a special place!
Thank you for the kind words! We truly appreciate your feedback, and are ecstatic to hear that you enjoyed our dining and listening venue to the fullest. We hope you visit again soon to enjoy another special evening of live jazz and shared plates.
The place is great! Good food and entertainment.
Our server was very impatient. I’ve been to Blue Llama several times. Always enjoyable. This is the first time we had an uncomfortable experience with the server.
Regardless, strongly recommend this place.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Joseph. We're thrilled you've enjoyed your past visits with us, and we sincerely apologize if our service was not as expected this time. I've shared your feedback with our internal team, and will make sure our servers are attentive without being impatient. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
A must-go music venue in AA. Great cocktails and acoustics!
Thank you for the outstanding rating! We're thrilled you enjoyed our craft cocktails and live music, and we look forward to serving the same excellent dining and listening experience next time you visit us.
Great atmosphere, very good acoustics for the live jazz acts. Small venue, which means there's no bad seat in the house. Prices are pretty steep, but maybe it has to be to support the venue with such limited seating.
Vegetarian options are limited, but tasty. Vegan options are nearly nonexistent.
Visited during Restaurant Week and food was not as well prepared as on previous visits. Still not bad though.
We truly appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we're thrilled you've been to our establishment on several occasions. Thank you for your feedback. I'll share your comments with my team as we continue to add new plates to our menu. We hope to see you again soon!
Great evening out and pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food, service, and music all came together to create an enjoyable evening. Andrew was our server and went above and beyond what we expected and took really good care of us. His attention to detail, knowledge of the food and wine, paired with his casual sit back and let me take care of you approach made the evening. We've walked by Blue Llama many times and never went in, so glad this time we made it happen and will definitely go back!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Jon! We're thrilled you enjoyed everything from our ambiance and entertainment to service and attention to detail. I'll be sure to share your comments directly with Andrew. We look forward to serving you another excellent memorable dining experience again soon.
I delayed going to the blue llama because they've been packed since opening, but finally made it in. The house band was the perfect backdrop to highlight the unique cocktails (Recommend the Electric Wizard; floral but very good). The food was inspired and replaced my choice for best restaurant in Ann Arbor. We will definitely be back
Thank you for the wonderful review, Janet. We're thrilled you could finally make it out to our venue, and we're ecstatic to go beyond your expectations. We look forward to serving you another 5-star experience during your next visit.
Delicious food, I’m a big fan of the avocado egg and chorizo, I get it every time I’m here! Also recommend the potatoes and chorizo, the glaze is fantastic.
Thank you for sharing your brunch experience with us! We're thrilled you thoroughly enjoyed our dining and listening experience, and we hope you visit again soon.
We had a great time at the Blue Llama. We caught the the 7:00 show of Janelle Reichman. What a great place for live music - and the food is exquisite! The band was also great - they played some original tunes and some well-chosen Jazz standards. I'm looking forward to my next visit to the BL.
Thank you for the wonderful review, Stephen! We're thrilled you enjoyed our entire dining and listening experience, and we also look forward to your next visit! Check out our upcoming events on our website, we have quite a few groups that play jazz standards coming to our stage next month. See you soon!
