The food and service here clearly warrant a better turnout than we saw on this evening. Yes, it's in a hotel that was probably not too full -- but in a mid to large sized dining room, only 3 tables were occupied. The menu is creative and the cooking is great. Our server knew the menu and gave very sound advice. If only there had been people around to enjoy all those things and give the room some much-needed life....

This restaurant space has gone through several iterations. Relish is the best one yet. It was so good I made another reservation. I really liked everything about it!

Ribs and whitefish dishes were excellent. Restaurant was over air-conditioned and we had to get our coats! Needs some decorating to soften the sound. Carpet? Wall hangings? Curtains? Loud and cold so next time we might takeout...

The food and service was initially great but despite giving them my card when the time came, they didn't swipe it because they assumed that we were staying in a room at the attached hotel. We were unaware, so we left and got a call half way home that we didn't pay so we had to drive all the way back so that they could swipe my card - very frustrating.

We waited a good 5 minutes before a hostess acknowledged us. Then it took another 10 for our waiter. We had to ask for water and the food was mediocre at best. I would not recommend this place.

Often visited prior to change-over.
Will continue to dine here- food good.

ordered an alcoholic drink that I thought was quite watered down- only complaint.

Went for the first time during Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. Great meal at an exceptional price. Will be returning. Willing to pay full price which can be a bit$$$$. Great service, great ambiance. Looking forward to my next visit.

The food was decent, but the kitchen was very slow. Our waiter similarly was well-intentioned but clearly very new and awkward.

We waited 45 minutes to get our got appetizer and a full hour to get our salad appetizer. We were told our appetizer had been "lost". We were asked to order entrees 30 minutes after we already placed our entree order, and when asked to speak to the manager we received little help. She simply said, "well our kitchen is on a 45 minute wait to get food out" and then "we're trying the best we can". There was no apology or offer to correct things. Service was appalling and we will not be going back.

Surprisingly good hotel restaurant. I would have sought it out if I hadn't been staying at the Kensington.

Hidden Gem!
The staff was very friendly and attentive , we were greeted and sat right away, the buffet was beautifully. Set up with many options including made to order omelets and waffles.
My friend is vegan and the server did a wonderful job helping her pick a vegan option off the menu.

This was a clean newly remodeled restaurant

Thank you for a great meal and such wonderful service and Hospitality we will be back to try lunch and dinner!

I was so disappointed with the Easter brunch. The food was mediocre at best. The service was TERRIBLE, our server barely spoke to us, we didn't know what to do or where to go for the buffet. It was very expensive, and no where close to worth the money.

Really loved the food. Great portion sizes and impecable taste. I had chicken and my husband had pork and we both loved our dishes. Ambiance was lacking, however. Hostess was too busy and needed to help in the restaurant. Several people were not greeted and actually had to meander into the restaurant to find someone to help. It was valentines day and this is how we ended up visiting here because our favorites were booked. Maybe they were understaffed. The server was nice, just unable to meet the demands of # of tables. At the end of our dinner someone in a chef coat came into dining room and adjusted the lighting which really helped (it was way too bright for evening dinner), but we were done with our meals by that time. We will try again, because the food was so good, but if same mediocre overall experience, we probably wont go back.

I would not recommend Relish. They were busy, which is understandable, as it was Valentine's Day. They were, however, understaffed. Valentine's Day is a typically busy day in the industry, and their staffing should have reflected that.

We waited 7 minutes for someone to come by and offer us water, and then we didn't see our server again for an additional 7 minutes. We ordered the special Valentine's Day menu, which did present very well. The appetizers were sub-par, and then when our entrees were brought out we decided to cancel the rest of our order and leave. I ordered the Duck dish, and not only did my server not ask how I wanted it cooked, he brought me a plate dripping in blood/juices. My husband ordered the filet mignon with a bernaise sauce, and when it arrived it had a layer of film on it, indicating that it had been sitting under a warmer for too long. We sent our dishes back and then canceled the order. We were charged for our appetizers and our "complimentary" champagne.

We were incredibly disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. It certainly soured our first Valentine's Day celebration as a married couple.

I haven't eaten in a hotel restaurant in the city I live in ever. But this one got good reviews so I thought I would check it out because my parents like easy parking places near the mall and I hate chain restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised. It rivals good restaurants downtown. I'll be back with my parents.

my wife and I went during restaurant week and enjoyed the experience , however if we were charged the normal prices it would be too expensive! I would recommend more special priced occasions so the average person could take advantage of the excellent food!

We went to relish for restaurant week and the deal was phenomenal. The food was excellent. It's a new restaurant and I hope that it garners some attention because it is better than most of the downtown restaurants with much less parking hassle!

What a delightful find. The food was outstanding, and the value for restaurant week was out of this world. The sourdough bites were surprising and the filet and salmon were wonderful. The meal ended with a slice of lemon chiffon cake that was the bomb.

We had an AMAZING 3-course meal during Ann Arbor Restaurant Week! Everything we ate was delicious, perfectly cooked, and beautifully plated. The regular prices appear to be on the high side, but reasonable for the quality and portion sizes. The prix fixe special menu for Restaurant Week was an EXTRAORDINARY value and presented a wonderful opportunity for us to try a new local restaurant.

Our waiter was adequate, but clearly inexperienced. He didn't seem to understand the term "neat" as it pertained to our drink order, didn't ask if we wanted another drink after we finished the first round, and didn't offer coffee as an option with dessert. However, these are small details that didn't impact our enjoyment of our meal at all. He was pleasant and helpful, and brought our courses out at a good pace.

We will definitely be back for another meal. The breakfast menu looks awfully good... :)

We went for lunch during Restaurant Week, it is remodeled and has a new menu, and hasn't been open in it's current form very long. The food was amazing, chicken sandwich with red pepper jelly and melted brie was terrific, chicken was perfectly grilled, a little messy but aren't all good sandwiches? 610 burger was also really good, blueberry jalapeno jam was tart with just the right amount of heat, and the burger itself was really good. We also ordered a halloumi salad to share, and were glad we did- it could easily be a meal on it's own, it was all very fresh, and the grilled halloumi cheese was very tasty. And then dessert- the bumpy cake- I am not always a sweets person, but this was sooo good! Dark chocolate cake with the whipped cream filling and a nice frosting-sweet but not stiff-and a beautiful pool of chocolate sauce on the plate to drag it through. So amazing-the whole experience was so good we decided to go back for dinner the same week!

It was the most enjoyable meal I have had in a long time. The New York strip was prepared so perfect it melted in my mouth. The waiter offered us complementary bread for no reason and it was amazing. Very great business and even better food look forward to going back as soon as I can. Wish them all the best and hope they succeed.
