    the food was superb as usual. The four of us had a mixture of fish and meat, and every dish was delightful. The service was also top-notch. As an aside, I had a martini which was the absolute best I have had at any restaurant in years.

    Not sure why after dining in Ann Arbor for 20 years was this our first time at West End. Might be the price point, definitely on the higher side but worth it. Meals come with an awesome soup or salad and the crab cakes were huge. Couldn’t finish our meals and took some home for later. Ambiance and service were great.

    The welcome and service were well-received for this intimate, cozy place. A generous pour of wine and well crafted martini rounded out our drink order. The beignet rolls with seasoned butter will make you and addict of, so caution is advised, or at least some restraint: I showed none! The fried artichoke was one of the best appetizers ever. Entrees of scallops and farfalle and the tofu stir- fry were very good, though the stir-fry was somewhat lacking in texture as well as flavor from what we would expect from this excellent restaurant. Westend Grill remains highly recommended.

    Entries of salmon, pork chop and tofu stir fry were superb. The small pre-meal salads were a tad too sparse to warrant better praise. West End commits the universal crime of martini dilution experienced by this writer everywhere! Only at home do I make and imbibe a drinkable one, alas. Our excellent server Gabe committed an amusing gaff by serving an excellent tea in lieu of the anticipated and much hyped coffee with a very nice orange-based cake/dessert. West End does it right in all the categories so go and enjoy as we have done!

    We enjoyed the restaurant, and our food choices were excellent. The portion sizes were a bit smaller than expected for the price, more gourmet style. We can calibrate to this, but we have gotten used to a slightly larger portion size. The dessert, though, was absolutely too big to eat alone!
