Great service. Thai salad was exactly as advertised. Light, fresh and tasty. Good music. Corn chowder was great! I'll definitely be back!

Very upscale, great food, fresh salads, steak, fish and drinks. Staff was very attentive. Food was prepared well and presentation was very eye catching. I will go back next time I am in Ann Arbor, Mi.

Right down the road from our hotel. Service was fantastic, nice menu, decent atmosphere. We enjoyed a very nice dinner. Highly recommend! Eating at our hotel would have been much more convenient, but so glad we ventured out.
