Many restaurants to eat in downtown Ann Arbor (Main Street), but The Earle is a must for consistent, excellent food (French and Italian cuisine). Best wine list in A2 and great happy hours specials in the bar. Make a reservation.

This restaurant bills itself as Italian and French country cooking. The cooking is really quite spectacular, and the dishes have amazing flavors. Entrees are pricy and portions on the smaller side. Salads are terrific and well priced. The decor, however, needs some updating. Located in...More

I would not consider this “fine dining”! This is more of an early bird supper crowd. While the food and service was fine, the place was out dated, run down and smelled like s musty basement bar. Clearly we were disappointed with an evening we...More
