I am visiting from out of town and was looking for a great wine bar, and this place delivered. The wine and food were excellent, along with the staff. I will defiantly be back next time I’m in town

I am a real foodie and this place was fantastic! It was slightly expensive, but oh my goodness was it good! The steak was so much better than Ruth Chris that is also downtown. I will definitely be back!

What a great restaurant. I've lived here for 25 years and dine out often. The service at Vinology is spectacular. Always. Very impressed with the food as well. A wedding downstairs, a full bar and tables full inside and out, yet our service was BOOM. No wait to be seated, immediate appearance of a friendly, and knowledgeable server. Never waited with an empty glass or a dirty plate. Really very impressed as always.

Delicious food and great service. I love having the option of a half portion. One appetizers and two half portions are more than enough for 2 people.

We have been to Vinology before, and each time we are so impressed with the food and service. This place can be your go-to, or it can be your special event. The food will keep you coming back.

This is our second time visiting Vinology, and both times have been great! This visit we were here for an early Saturday brunch, they were not busy and we were able to sit at a shaded table outside. The service was prompt, friendly, and professional. Food was good - we split the heirloom tomato salad and burrata, I had the wild mushroom omelette and my partner had the chicken and waffles. My partner enjoyed the mimosas and I had an aperol spritz and a glass of the blanc de blanc. They have a great drink menu and extensive wine selection, there is something for everyone here. Overall, I always enjoy coming to Vinology and will be back soon!

Great dinner! We started with the charcuterie board, which was great! I liked the option to have a half entree. I got the duck and it was phenomenal! Highly recommend

The salad was a bit too basic and the room a bit too dark. But everything else was great (drinks, food, dessert, service...). It is not cheap, but what you get justifies their prices. Save it for a special occasion.

Vinology has been a favorite of ours in Ann Arbor for years. We love the wine, and the food is great also. It is a wonderful place to meet friends or take a break from the summer Art Fair. We were just there and, as always, the service was very very friendly, the wine flights were delicious, and the food was just what I was in the mood for.

Good menu, charcuterie was not all that great but the chicken thighs were delicious and so was the ribeye dinner. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable and the wine variety was pretty decent.

Slightly eclectic but interesting menu. Good waiter. He messed a couple things up, but fixed them. Please don't put cilantro in so many things. Yuck!!
I loved my salad and our flat bread. I didn't love my duck entree. It had too much going on with a Mexican flair and not real good duck and not much of it either.

Vinology is where we chose to have our fifth anniversary celebration, and it was the perfect choice, just as it was the perfect choice when we got married in their event room. The food is always spectacular. The service is also spectacular. The staff is highly trained, attentive without feeling like they are hovering over you, and often even remember you. Before we even did more than start to consider what we might like from the cocktail menu and wine list, our server, who had also been there when my husband and I married, offered us a glass of the wine that was served at our wedding. It's that kind of attention to detail that makes Vinology one of the two best restaurants I have ever had the pleasure to dine at.

The service was superior. The only downside to the entire experience was that the temperature in the restaurant was too cold. A little less air conditioning would be nice. Otherwise it was perfect. The food was really good and the portions weren’t overwhelming. Always a good take.

We wanted a nice dinner for my sweetie’s birthday. Inside the restaurant was freezing (hate this!) so we asked for a table outside. The food runners could never seem to manage to bring us utensils when they delivered food. It is very disappointing to wait with hot food in front of you on a cool evening and have no way to eat it while it is fresh. Both our wines were mediocre. The $100 bill - just not worth it.

I used to love this restaurant, but it seems to be sliding downhill. The tables are very scratched up and not covered by table cloths - this is something more befitting a pub or a bar, not a restaurant of this aspirational character or plate price, for that matter. Our server was very nice, but hardly knew the menu at all. A few of our party had a hard time finding something they really wanted to eat (ok, I realize this may just be particular tastes, but I have heard this from others as well). I personally found plenty to interest me, but have to say that the food was just OK - not great, like I remembered it from prior visits. The best parts? The mixology seems top notch, and a couple of us really enjoyed the wine flights.

Sunday Brunch for Mothers days was awesome. Great people, very friendly and happy to take a couple of pictures of the family. The oatmeal was unbelievable. The French toast was very unique but too much to eat!

Vinology really seems to be slipping. The wines and cocktails remain the strong point. The food was good, but not great. The entrees are now priced much higher than previously and, at least on the night we went, are no longer are offered in small/large portions that had made this restaurant one of my favorites. Moreover, even though the price has gone up the quality and variety do not strike me as having increased commensurately. I think it's still worth coming if you want a nice conversation, drinks and some small plates.

The food at Vinology was amazing! I came for the graduation special on May 5th and the options available were outstanding. I got to try the Oatmeal Creme Brulee, the Chicken & Waffles, the Pastries, and the Sticky Bun French Toast. Everything was amazing! The food came out quickly and our server was very nice! The bottomless mimosas were also delicious and a plus. I enjoyed all six of them!! The atmosphere was calm and relaxed with a sophisticated vibe without being too stuffy. We dressed up a bit because we thought it would be appropriate, but it wasn't at all necessary! You can either dress up or be casual and the experience would be just as amazing! I can't wait to come back.

Went for brunch, food was not fresh but tasted soggy and like it had been sitting for a while. Service was okay. Wouldn’t go back, very underwhelmed. Makes sense why there was no one there on a Sunday morning.
