Vinology Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
The brunch selection was good and the kids food selection was more than we expected. We had a leisurely lunch and enjoyed the brunch drinks. The restaurant was busy and our waiter asked us to be patient, which we appreciated knowing. The shrimp and grits was a large sized meal and was quite tasty. The ban mi was well prepared also.
Vinology was great! Excellent wine selection and server was very knowledgeable about the wine list. Food was excellent especially the octopus and shortrib tacos! Dividers between booths make it a very intimate space that is great for conversation. The service was superb. We will definitely be back!
Vinology is a favorite of my wife and is fast becoming one of mine. We went for Restaurant Week with its three course menu. I could've eaten an platter of the pork belly wontons I got for the appetizer. My wife loved her colcannon soup. For my entree I had a vegan paella with faux chorizo that didn't make me miss the meat at all. My wife went the opposite and had the very meaty and tasty lamb shank. Desserts were good too. I'm not the oenophile that my wife is so I appreciate the craft cocktail menu. Now we're looking forward to trying brunch here.
What a great experience at Vinology. I absolutely love this restaurant and the management and waitstaff couldn't be more pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Made a reservation for 8 for a birthday and was kindly offered the cellar room as a dining location which I happily accepted. The good and wine was exceptional and Vinny the manager and David our waiter were so attentive and patient with our large crowd. I can't say enough about what a lovely night it was. I've eaten here frequently for everything from date night to 20+ people gatherings and I have never walked away disappointed. Overall just a fantastic place for any food and wine lover.
Our group of 5 adults and 1 baby enjoyed a very tasty brunch on Saturday. The bottomless mimosas were lovely and the waitstaff was attentive and friendly. We had the French toast with chantilly cream, salmon omelette, short rib tacos, and shrimp and grits. All were delightful. We will definitely be back.
The food is really something special! We had an awesome meal. Amazing flavors and obviously well thought out menu. Creative dishes that you can't get just anywhere. The portions are a bit on the small side. The wine, while delicious, was very expensive for very small pours. That being said, we will definitely be back and will recommend to friends!
Good but not the usual service or quality. Very busy and we were seated in the path between the bar and kitchen so the staff would often fun into those of us seated at the edge of the table as they were passing. It felt rushed and service was good but distracted. The food was plated beautifully and tasted good but the some dishes were cold or had sat after being prepared. A set menu was offered for the NYE evening and my guess is that dishes were prepared and sat waiting to be served. A service charge was automatically added even though we were not a group of 6. The set menu or the service charge was not disclosed prior to dining. The extra attention to detail that usually justifies the price was absent or rushed.
Wife and I went for a date night. Restaurant was very busy but they had our table waiting. There wasn't any place for my wife to put her oversized winter coat. The hostess offered to take it and keep it at her own station. Good food and as mentioned great service. We had a really fun time
I love this place. Food never disappoints - love that they are bold with the menu and change it frequently, as it keeps the dining experience fresh.
This time I tried the bison loin - asked for medium rare - got medium rare - nice pink center.
Oh and the rutabaga, carrot purée- ha! It was divine. I remember sitting at the table for hours, face wrinkled with defiant scowl in protest of my parents' demand to finish my rutabaga before I excusing me from the dinner table - well had it tasted like this there would have been far fewer standoffs in my home!
Worth noting, the apples and squash took on an incredible amount of smoke flavor - almost surreal...
And of course the wine - always a nice variety of good quality, reasonably priced varietals to choose from. Be sure to try the carafes - equitably priced as the bottle, but you can try two wines with your meal instead of one. When it's just the two of us I love this option.
Great job - keep up the good work.
Phenomenal!! Outstanding food and service. Chef Adam's recipes are incredibly delicious and the desserts sinfully decadent. Menu has excellent options to choose from and they all go beyond your expectations. Our server David was great with his suggestions for the wine bottle as well as the food and did not simply push for us to make choices but gave us wise options that fit our appetite and palette. PB & J, Fjord Trout & Michigan Beets were my favorites.
We had a reservation after a UM football game. Table was ready when we were. Our waiter was friendly and efficient on what became a busy evening. Both of our salads were unique and very good, We had 4 small plates between the two of us for our main course and it was plenty. Our wine was very good, but seemed quite expensive, particularly since we didn't even choose from the lengthy "select" list.
Date night with the spouse. Solid wine list. Menu format was nice. Could order small plate or full dinner. Our waiter was very friendly and enthusiastic with recommendations. Suggested order a few small plates and then splitting a main. Spot on. Ambiance was vibrant while still allowing for conversation.
Overall had a good brunch. The service was slow, even though not busy. Ordered tea and hot water came in a really nice teapot. But when I poured it, it didn't even fill the teacup to the top which was strange. The food was good for the most part. Eggs in eggs benedict slightly undercooked. Ambiance is great, unique.
This was a great place. We were in town to visit my daughter at university and took her and her friend to dinner. We all loved everything. They have limited vegetarian/ vegan options but my meal was fantastic. They even had a vegan dessert that wasn't just boring sorbet!! Damian our waiter was awesome! Definitely go again! Highly recommend.
We love this restaurant and visit several times a month. We made a last minute reservation and it was a UM home football night. Our table was a small two top in the middle of the main room. It felt weird at first but our waiter, Damian I think, was so sweet and really tried to make us feel welcome. We had a couple of drinks each and a few small plates. We liked the curried cauliflower and mini sliders. The flatbread was little more than a pepperoni pizza. A good pizza but...great meal.
