Went to the Sunday buffet. You can't miss this event. Excellent food! It was Memorial Day weekend, so not the normal crowd.

Unfortunately our seats were very uncomfortable. There were 6 in our party, 5 adults one pre-teen. We were seated in a booth which was way too tight for six people. The Sunday brunch buffet has a little bit of everything for every taste but has lunch and breakfast items. Juice is included. Unlimited
Mimosas for $10. This restaurant was Just what we wanted for the ocassion.

Sunday brunch food was very mediocre. Slightly below cruise ship quality. All the right dishes are there - roast beef, shrimp cocktail, etc but the execution is very poor. Jambalaya does not taste like it was made in the restaurant. Ham croquettes were mostly breading with small pieces of ham but if your eyes were closed you couldn’t tell there was ham. And so on. So for $22/person age 13 and up not a good value.

We never miss a visit when we’re visiting Ann Arbor. They only offered a limited Graduation menu, so at first I was disappointed that didn’t have my favorites available . However, it made me order something new, and it was delicious !

We went for a graduation dinner. The service was outstanding. They had a limited menu, because of the amount of reservations they had on such a busy graduation weekend. There was only one chicken dish, due to the limited menu. Our party would have preferred additional chicken choices. Other than that, the rest of our orders were very good.

Good experience. On this occasion, I Came here for my Mom’s birthday. This restaurant is not for those on a Paleo plan - I allowed myself to enjoy some generally forbidden menu items, lol. Service wasn’t awesome, but it was sufficient enough.
Fantastic desert menu!

We’ve always enjoyed the Quarter Bistro, but this experience was even better than usual. Our waiter, Tyler, was wonderful and made our evening enjoyable with his helpful suggestions and attention. My Seafood Santorini was perfect, my husband thoroughly enjoyed his Steak and fettuccine with gorganzola and walnuts and our friends raved about the duck breast special. The chef certainly was at the top of his game! I highly recommend The Quarter Bistro.

Made an online reservation and we were seated within a few minutes. Ordered an appetizer and the wrong one was brought out. Waited about 20 more minutes to say they were almost done. Over an hour from the time we ordered our food until we got it. Never did get the appetizer. Staff was nice but the service was extremely slow. I felt like I was there forever. Won’t be returning.

Service can really impact your meal and experience. We were extremely disappointed in the service. Our waitress never delivered our orders, we went without drinks and silverware. We were embarrassed that we took another couple. For the price point you would expect better service.

One of the few places in AA where one can get an Appletini which, by the way, was very good.
Brisket was tasty but very fatty. My companion enjoyed the crab cakes. Service was excellent.

I share with hesitation that the happy hour was so much fun (don't want everyone to know, it's already very busy) great energy! Ended up staying for dinner in the dining room and 3 out of the 4 of us had a similar seafood dish prepared 3 different ways and they were all excellent! Our server was superb! Thank You :)

7:30 reservations on a Saturday night. The kitchen was inordinately slow. It was more than an hour until our entrees were served, I think around 8:45. Other tables were in the same situation. It made for an uncomfortably long dinner.

The Bistro pulls together many excellent qualities to provide an outstanding dining experience. This is one of our very favorite restaurants in Southeast Michigan. The staff are always professional and very friendly. The flavors of the dishes are always well balanced and appropriately mysterious.

We love Quarter Bistro for Sunday Brunch. It's our go-to. Warm, inviting atmosphere with an outstanding menu and buffet on Sunday. Can be a little noisy, especially in some of the separate rooms, but easy to put up with considering everything else. Oysters, pancake tower, carved roast beef... amazing.

I visit the Quarter quite often. They have GREAT happy hour specials during weekdays, and an incredible Sunday brunch! Recently I visited for my daughters Birthday which is on Valentines day. I had orriganlly booked in advance for a 1:00 PM lunch which due to her busy work schedule had to be changed to the evening. I then booked a 5:00PM which at first was available, however due to heavy booking, 8:30 PM was the only spot open when I viewed my confirmation. I arrived at 4:30 PM and explained my dilemma to the manager, of whom was very understanding and accommodating! I was given a great table in the semi-private room that I wanted. My daughter was an hour late due to a work meeting. The waiter Darrin, was wonderful! Not hovering but always available when needed. The manager and all staff was absolutely great! The food was excellent as usual. even with all the reservation changes and long wait on my daughters arrival, the manager and staff where absolutely wonderful! Never a complaint or being rushed, which is amazing considering this was one of the busiest nights of the year, and they were completely booked!! Awesome people, awesome food, awesome place!!!

My husband and I went to QB for our Valentine's Celebration. We understand this is a busy night for dining out and it tests the management and systems. It is a berametor. We had an unfavorable experience. The worst part was the over an hour wait for our entrees. By the time they arrived we were not in the mood to have a dining experience. While the manager made an adjustment in the bill we would rather have had a lovely evening. While I do not know the inside workings of their establishment my thought is they took too many reservations for the ability of the kitchen to fulfill in a timely manner.

Had a nice Valentines Day meal with my girlfriend. The whitefish was absolutely delicious, and I really enjoyed my salmon. The calamari was a solid appetizer as well. Our waiter was friendly. They were hopping since it was VDay so it is nice to see the food quality didn't suffer. Well done!

From the time we walked through the door until we left we were treated royally. Our reserved table was ready and our server, Irene, was wonderful. She was very busy with several large tables, yet managed to tend to us without a wait and didn’t forget our slightest request. My salmon and lentils was amazing, my daughter loved her chicken and both men nearly licked their plates to get every bit of their pasta with steak and Gorgonzola/walnut sauce. It was a fantastic meal. We loved it. Will go back again soon.
