    First time at West End Grill and it was a very pleasant experience. The potato crusted halibut was outstanding and so was the sea bass. They missed on cooking my son's burger "medium" (was barely cooked at rare temp) but apologetically took it back and cooked it more (and replaced the truffle fries with a new batch). It was perfect upon return to the table. Service was spot on. We will be back!

    It was our 19th wedding anniversary. The appetizers were delicious. My short ribs were excellent. My wife’s filet came out rare and she ordered it medium. We sent it back and it was slightly better. The outside was over charred and thawed all that you could taste. We decided not to send it back. I was finished with my entree before they bought my wife’s back. They did give a piece of carrot cake for the inconvenience.

    There is nothing spectacular about this restaurant. Especially for the price. Service seemed slow but for some reason we didn’t blame our server. It seemed like it was something in the kitchen.

    Service was slow. Food was good but didn’t match with the description in the menu. The potato encrusted halibut had very little coating which was unrecognizable as potato. The side vegetables were under cooked and not very interesting

    Nice evening celebrating my wife’s birthday. Our server was outstanding and West End Grill is always a nice restaurant to visit. On this experience the food was okay, not excellent as I remember in the past. My sea bass was somewhat dry (overcooked?) and the sides were meh (rice seemed like it was reheated, only 2 baby carrots, and the green beans seemed undercooked). My daughters salmon was not filleted properly and had some dark, fishy tasting meat. My son loved his scallops and pasta and my wife loved her halibut. I’m sure we’ll go back sometime in the future

    We had a delightful dinner at West End Grill. The seafood strudel and scallops with pasta were excellent. And the service was very special. The general manager and bartender Christian were both very welcoming. This is now our favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor after the Earle being in first place for several years!

    I am never disappointed! The food is exceptional. Even though it is pricey, for a special occasion, it is well worth it. Each member of our party had a different Entree and dessert everyone raved about the food. The signature drinks and fabulous desserts are an extra special treat. The service was very good and the ambiance intimate.

    The service was outstanding. The food was not as good as we remember it but we are mindful of the effects of the pandemic. I found the lobster tail’s sweetness reduced by over salting the beurre blanc sauce. The beignets were fabulous. The Brussels sprouts did not have the robust sweeter taste we have had at the Red Hawk for example.

    Don't trust the menu on-line. I liked the West End Burger on-line but in person they no longer gave you avocado, fried egg, etc. I was disappointed but got it any way and it was excellent but it sure missed those ingredients. Our table of two was near a noisy table of 6. We thought they were leaving and we'd be OK. Not. Kind of spoiled some of our dinner.

    Waited 15 mins for the server to greet us. The apps order went in wrong so the server turned around and gave the incorrect dish to the table next to us. Drinks came out after the apps. Server put wrong entree in for one of us, so we all had to wait on it. Food was nice - just not as nice as it once was. I heard rumors the restaurant just wasn’t the same since there are new owners. It’s true. Just not the same experience especially for the prices.
