Made a reservation here because I got a 25% discount from having tickets to a concert at Hill Auditorium. What a pleasant surprise! Service was great. The food was wonderful. The portion sizes were just right not too big or too small. The waiter overheard...More

We have eaten at Melange many times on our visits to Ann Arbor and always been pleased. While there seems to be a focus on Japanese food, the menu is much broader and we appreciate the fact that different items are frequently available.

It was highly recommended and I really liked the decor (and the backlit menus), but it was pretty expensive and while the descriptions on the menu sounded very innovative, the food was sort of hit or miss. There were five of us and only one...More

Wanted so much to love this restaurant. The Melange salad was so so. We had the beef on hot rocks and the tuna on hot rocks. The rocks weren't hot enough so was hard to cook. The California roll was EXCELLENT. Even though the restaurant...More

I recommend Melange. An upscale restaurant with an adventurous menu. Food was well prepared, atmosphere pleasant (hear late eve weekends can be very noisy), waiter was oddly condescending. It was one of my better meals out in a while.

Reservations on the weekend may be hard to come by here. But the lounge/bar area is rather big with first come/first serve. If you get here before 6pm, there should be tables in the lounge. The food is very good. We had the River Rock...More

One of the few places in Ann Arbor where friends can sit for dinner in a comfortable attractive setting and hear themselves. Good wine list. Appetizers and desserts are strong points of the menu, main courses a little disappointing.

We do not get to Ann Arbor that often, but we had a travelzoo coupon, and a theater engagement with the University of Michigan Musical Society, so we had the opportunity to dine at Melange. Everything was first rate, very friendly, quiet enough for easy...More

Melange might have one of the best happy hours in Ann Arbor. The drinks are half off and the happy hour menu is substantial. The duck nachos and quesadillas are out of this world. If you enjoy sushi ask for the sushi menu. The chef...More

Mélange The word Mélange means a combination or variety and we think it really captures the essence of the menu - The menu brings together a wide range of ingredients and culinary influences within each dish, but comes together to create its own unique fingerprint.
