    We went to Gandy Dancer for my daughter’s 21st Birthday. We’ve been to Ann Arbor about 9-10 times in the last three years and it was the best meal we’ve ever had by UoM! Please give our compliments to Chef Mark Sanchez! The oysters were very high quality and ever appetizer, entree and desert was 10/10

    Great dining experience. Always great food and ambiance. Although we were in no hurry, the time to dine was about 2 hours.

    Gandy Dancer is a favorite, the food is always good and usually so is the service. This time, however, the service was lacking. Our waiter was very nice but not good. We didn't have time to finish our appetizer before our salads came. He asked if we wanted him to bring it back. "There's no room on the table and we're still eating," we told him. Then we had to wait a very long time to receive our salad. We had to ask for bread, ask to have our water glasses filled. One of the main entrees was not hot and what should've taken a few minutes took so long that I was almost done with my meal before the other entree was brought back. I tried to hold off but my meal was getting cold. Waiter checked on us one time only. We had to rely on another waiter to help us. Disappointed but perhaps he is new. I'll be back I just won't sit at his table. Food is great, however.

    We were seated at table for 4 along wall across from West windows and there was a table of 8 at window. The tables and chairs were so close waiters and diners could not get through. We had to ask to be moved - this should have been thought of before anyone was seated. Once we were moved, it was a pleasant experience with very good food.
