Came out for Trio Escobar, twice now. Absolutely incredible food and drink. A little something for everyone while standing out from the crowd. Try the Crispy Escargot Confit and PEI Mussels with Octopus - amazing. Fabulous date night option, guys.

We absolutely loved the band. They did one hell of a job! The music was fantastic. The food left much to be desired, and was expensive. We had a sampler and the grapes were inedible. I would come back strictly for the music. I reserved a high top table and we ended up in a table near the stage so that was a little disappointing.

Thank you for your valuable feedback! We're thrilled you enjoyed the live music on our stage, and we apologize if the cuisine was not as you expected. You may be happy to hear that we've just launched a brand new pop up restaurant, Blue LLama Bistro: A Trip to Paris. We'll now serve authentic French wine and cuisine right here in Ann Arbor. We hope you'll join us and explore the new dishes on our menu. For a better value, we also offer our Chef's Tasting Menu.

It was very nice although we had to ride around an extra 20 minutes because of construction and the streets being one way streets, once we finally found the building it was worth it. Very nice will definitely be back.

Yes - Ann Arbor construction can be a beast. We appreciate you venturing out to enjoy an evening of live music and delicious cuisine! In fact, if you haven't been back in a while, you'll be surprised to hear that we switched our menu to an all French menu! Make a reservation and try our authentic French wine and cuisine - don't forget our Weekend Brunch!

Went there on a Monday evening- very early at 5pm. There were only a few people there so totally safe and social distanced 😄
We did the tasting menu and it was amazing. So good and different. So much food! Service was excellent. The entertainment was warming up as we were leaving so can’t comment on that. We will definitely be back.

The chef at the Blue Llama is really special. Each offering was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. We stopped by for our wedding anniversary and were completely satisfied with the service, food and drink offerings, and especially the jazz band. Great music at a decibel level where you can enjoy the music and also have a conversation. Make a reservation, you will not be disappointed.

We were in AA for the weekend and chose the Llama based off of recommendations. What an excellent adventure. We got the 'improvisation' which is a surprise 4-course, 11 plate meal created by chef and his amazing creativity! 'Outstanding' doesn't do it justice! Our waitress was friendly, helpful and fun as well. We sat outside on a gorgeous night to truly remember! 10+ Stars!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're thrilled you enjoyed our service and modern ambiance, but it seems as though our cuisine fell short of what you had expected. Our dinner service is based on American Shared Plates, and we generally recommend 2-3 plates per person to have our full intended experience. But you may find our weekend brunch or daily happy hour specials to be of more value!

I took my fiancé for a Friday date night. We had the most wonderful dinner in a very long time. The music was just amazing and made us never want to leave. It is very challenging to find a restaurant that actually knows how to cook. The chef at this establishment is truly 5 stars. The branzino and it was cooked to perfection.

The music was wonderful but that’s all I can say that’s positive about the experience. The waiter always seemed like checking on our table was an afterthought. He really ruined the night! A $30 pork chop on top of 5 fingerling potatoes isn’t a steal either.
