It started out badly with a hair in our appetizer, but generally speaking the food doesn’t live up to the hype. It’s highly overpriced for the actual food quality and portions. Staff is nice and the atmosphere is nice, but it’s not worth $150 dinner tab for two people.

Menu is exceedingly old school, prepared decently but not in line with the pricing. Our vinyl tablecloth was torn at all 4 corners and had a dark stain all along the table edges. A recent change to undimmable LED lights was way too bright.

Destroyed what should have been a special occasion.
No attempt was made by our waiter or the hostess to provide timely service or to even take our dessert order after finishing dinner for over 30 minutes.
We will not be returning there for any occasion.

Food was good, but doesn’t fit the high price. A salad is an upgrade. The chowder was watery. The Cream brûlée was very good and a nice size.

As you enter the frayed plastic tablecloths are a bit of a turn off but we were very pleasantly surprised by the food. Everything was delicious! Service was good, especially given how crowded it was.

This was not great, I would not go back. The food is overpriced and underwhelming, we were put in an awful table and had to be asked to move even though we had a reservation. Good service though, I think his name was Adam.

Above average, but not memorable. Server was phoning it in...robotic...disengaged.

I’ve lived in Ann Arbor since 1963. This place is OK...a safe bet.

The food was great. The service? Not so great. Our server asked if we were there for an occasion, we said we were there for my son's birthday. Is it today? Can I see your license? Oh no, it was yesterday. So she says that we would have gotten 50% off if we had come in YESTERDAY. But since it was the day after? Tough luck. Probably shouldn't have mentioned anything. Didn't start out well. She also forgot my fries but comped us a dessert. Did nothing special for the birthday. We will be back but if I see her? I'm asking for a different section.

We went for a birthday lunch on a Sunday and found that they only offer a dinner menu on Sundays, so it was a costly, but delicious celebration. The food was perfect, service amazing, and the atmosphere beautiful and peaceful. If you're watching your pennies... I recommend going when they have a lunch menu to offer. Oh, and the miso Chilean sea bass was the best fish entree I've ever had.

A very reliable restaurant. Always fresh fish and seafood well prepared. The sides we had, stewed tomatoes and mixed vegetables were fine, the bread is very good and the coleslaw is really excellent. The wine prices seem to be crawling up; there are no bargains in that part of the menu.

This has been our go-to restaurant for special occasions for many years. However, on a recent visit to celebrate my husband's birthday, I was disappointed to learn that my favorite dish that I order every time we dine there, the bleu cheese scallops, is no longer on the menu. So disappointing. I guess we will be finding another "special occasion" venue.

Love to go seafood crazy here. Had oysters, lobster bisque, and a bunch more. Table was great, exactly what we asked for. Food was also. The server must have been having a bad day. No smiles, with another server who appeared to be in training. Not introduced. Hope she did not stay as his trainer.

Had wonderful seafood (again) where we've always had excellent food and good times. The only downside this time was where we were seated - it was more noisy than normal (small children) and if we had been seated elsewhere in the restaurant, it would have been different (the restaurant was only half-filled as it was a Monday evening).
