LOGAN Restaurant opened in November 2004, with a commitment to providing Ann Arbor a unique and truly sensational dining experience. We are a small, independently owned and operated business. As such, we feel we can be attentive to the small details that separate great restaurants from the rest. For example, Chef-Owner Thad Gillies and his staff prepare from scratch each day the culinary components that are the base of everything we do. When they combine these elements for your dining pleasure, they transcend the French cooking techniques used to create them, in fact, they also transcend the many culinary traditions our kitchen draws from to create our “New American Cuisine”. Great food alone does not make a great dining experience, though; we feel that great wine, beer, and spirits are an essential part of that experience, as well. We are seek to offer you the very best of all of these we can obtain, always with a focus on excellent value.

It's still a good spot, though perhaps becoming a bit complacent. Service is uneven -- on two recent visits had an extraordinarily able server the first time and on second one who seemed more than a bit befuddled. Food remains very good (though superlatives not justified) and atmosphere is among the very best in Ann Arbor.

Had a 30 minute wait despite reservation; service initially slow...but then it was straightened out. The food was delicious - option to order petite portions. Recommend

We enjoyed another great dinner at Logan's. Our server Spencer was great and attentive, especially given how busy the place was for an early (6:15pm) Tuesday night.

I took my mother out for a little mother daughter nice dinner bonding time, and I was definitely not disappointed. This was our first time at Logan, but will not be our last. The manager provided my mother with a glass of wine that was not on the menu that was perfect for her. Our starter, entrees, and deserts were creative, just a little different than fare you would find elsewhere and very delicious! The service was amazing and we felt very taken care of, but not stalked or harassed in any way. The restaurant was just the right noise level: It was not hard to hear each other, but it wasn't library quiet either. We will be back in the future.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the promise of creative quisine. I particularly appreciate the option of half orders, giving me an opportunity to have three courses without feeling like I overate. The smoked white fish spread was very good. A nice wine list too. The problem comes with the service which was poor right from the beginning. A long wait from the appetizer on. Most disappointing was that the sever and manager made excuses that really shouldn’t be part of the customer’s problem.....new team member, large party (not ours).

I truly think this is a best restaurant in Ann Arbor for foodies. Their food is unique but familiar and their food presentation is beautiful. Also, Kevin is the best sommelier in town who is passionate about pairing wines with any menu item.

Wonderful, inventive food as always. The waitstaff are great, they know the menu and are helpful and friendly. Wine list is always changing and full of great options - the "Kevin's Selection" is something you can never go wrong with. We've been coming here since early after it opened, and it remains Ann Arbor's best restaurant.

I have been Logan's customer for a long time and they have never disappointed me. The chef uses high-quality ingredients and prepares all the dishes with care. I like that they now offer smaller portion for some dishes. The pineapple cake and brownie with pistachio ice-cream are yummy. Kevin, the sommelier is very knowledgeable and have always picked great wine for my meals. Highly recommend.

The food at Logan is always very good and keeps us coming back.
Occasionally the wait staff and cramped setting makes the overall experience less than great.
Our waiter last night acted like he was in a rush and interrupted our conversations abruptly often. Then to top it off, he forgot to bring my wife her leftovers. When we asked for them they were gone. He offered to give us credit on our “next visit” which at this point is assuming a lot.

My wife restrains me from eating here all the time. She wants it as our special occasion restaurant, when I could eat there weekly. There are no condiments on the table because you never need any. Every dish is perfectly seasoned and served at the optimum temperature. I have yet to find a dish I didn't truly enjoy. If you need that special place to take someone, this is the place.

From New York City and just dropped our son off for his freshman year at UofM. Spent total of seven nights this summer in Ann Arbor and tried all the so-called “best” in Ann Arbor list. Logan is far and away the best. The chef was trained at New York City’s famed Lespinasse, and it shows. Every dish is complex and inventive. Menu is a mad scientist mix of cuisines and flavors. The beef short rib was among the best I’ve ever had. Shrimp and grits with a Mexican mole sauce - who thinks of that! Gnocchi pesto - again maybe the best I’ve ever had, even in Italy. Some waitstaff are students and so not perfect professional grade, but everyone is friendly, earnest and helpful. You are made to feel appreciated and comfortable. The Chef came out and chatted with us and was engaging and humble. This is hands down our favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor. Not to be missed.

My favorite Ann Arbor restaurant!! The service, food and wine are all outstanding!! We both had the special and it was spectacular!! The bottle of wine that the sommelier helped us pick out paired
perfectly with the skate dish. The chocolate mousse for dessert was wonderful!
