Vinology Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
We went to Vinology for a birthday dinner and had wonderful food and delicious wine as usual. The deconstructed Caesar salad was especially lovely. The only problem was the raucous screaming for the entire 2 Hour dinner by the folks in the adjoining booth. We could barely talk to each other.
Wine good as always. We had the vegan cassoulet which was ok and fjord trout was good but the spinach was somewhat stringy. The decaf coffee was unbelievably good and hot. Dessert ok. Our friends had the small Cap ribeye which I think they enjoyed. Server was a bit out of it. Somehow he missed the mark that this place deserves. Despite this lukewarm review we like this place.
Such a nice place to be, even on a cold night. Beautiful decor, not too noisy, nice service people. The manager even came by to wish me a happy birthday I loved sitting at the bar until the rest of my family arrived and the drinks were superb. None of the food was spectacular but there were lots of yummy, healthy vegetarian options. Everyone enjoyed their meals except for my husband's trout, which was under-cooked and too heavily sauced.
This was my 4th or 5th visit and I'll be back again!
The food was fantastic, wine delicious, service great and environment very welcoming. The prices are a bit higher than desired, but that was expected when dining here. Additionally, it would be much nicer if Open Table allowed requests for particular table types. I was seated at a high table with my party when we would have much preferred a booth. Unless I am mistaken or missed an additional comments box, I did not see any option to request that.
We were celebrating a birthday, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious, and our wine was excellent. we sat in one of the booths, which provided some privacy and noise reduction. I would definitely recommend Vinology as a great place to dine!
Vinology is one of our regular go-to places for wine, Happy Hour, and "fancy eating" (for Ann Arbor, at least). Some nights are better than others, but last night was especially good. If you go anytime soon (the menu rotates with the season), get the camp fire dessert. Really excellent s'mores re-invented.
We started with the charcuterie which was good.
Then we had the beet and burrata salad which had an odd pairing between the earthy beets and the creamy burrata.
We had the fjord trout. The fish was cooked well. The autumn berry raita didn’t make sense with the dish. The dish had good earthy notes and the tangy yogurt flavor of the raita didn’t make any sense and was off putting. The raita was looking for some spicy heat to cool down, but none existed in the dish.
For dessert we had the apple and fennel which was terrible. The pound cake was not flavorful. The apple was spiralized to two foot lengths. The apple was soaked in apple cider vinegar. The granata was a fennel granata more than an apple cider granata. The only thing that was OK was the panna cotta. Eating the dessert turned into a dare for the rest of the table.
Overall very good wine list, the food is interesting but not good.
The harvest gnocchi was amazing! So delicious and perfectly seasoned! The wine flight was really cool, all excellent wines and it was so fun trying to guess the country of origin and grape variety for a small discount.
The campfire dessert was also amazing, so rich!!
Only thing I would give a 3star was the baked brie, it was kind of boring, could use more fruit sauce with it and maybe baked a bit longer.
Our server was lovely!
All together excellent date night, left very happy!
Food presentation was lovely. Table got cheese plate to share, excellent, asked for more bread to go with it, no problem.
Two people shared the scallop dinner size and they said it was excellent. One person got the small plate salmon and also loved it. I got the fried game hen small plate and did not like the seasonings or veggies at all. The greens were bitter and really tough. I took the breading off the game hen and just ate meat so I was not pleased with my meal but everyone else was. my ceasar salad was good though. Nice wine selection.
