Blue llama was a decent experience. A tad bit expensive. Our main course wasn’t brought out until we complained. Afterwards it came out and was very fatty. Not good food and drinks were expensive. Band was very good

My first time at a jazz club! I’ve wanted to go to Blue Llama for the past few years and finally got a chance with my girlfriend. I knew I would like the ambiance but wasn’t sure if she would. She ended up living it! The drinks were fantastic, as was the Gato Noir. Allen Harris put on a wonderful show! We’ll be back soon.

The ambience, music and server were all great. My only complaint is that the tasting menu was disappointing. The server described it as items picked by the chef that we might not normally order, but the main courses were baked chicken and trout and the dessert was a small scoop of sorbet, what you would normally see as a palate cleanser. It was tasty, but not worth $65.

Went for birthday dinner with our son. Everything was great- good, service, wine list, cocktails and the entertainment was REALLY good. Kind of hard to catch up on our conversation on Latin night! But well worth it.

Great music venue with ALL seats in the music area having unobstructed view of the band.

Very friendly staff who worked hard to please.

Excellent cocktails, we had Martinis and the bar staff made them to perfection.

Food was very good. We had the red beans and they were cooked to my liking...and I am from New Orleans!

We saw a piano trio that was amazing.

WE WILL RETURN.

Excellent chef! Food and service was outstanding! The ambiance is extraordinary and the band was out of sight! Very comfortable, romantic setting. The Blue Llama is a great addition to Ann Arbor's excellent high end dining establishments. It is a bit pricey but how do you put a cost on great evening and a wonderful memory? Highly recommended for your next special occasion! Or just turn and ordinary night in to a special occasion!

I love this spot. It's a great date option. Highly suggest going on an "off day" in the middle of the week and rolling the dice on the entertainment. I've never been disappointed in the food or the show!

Husband and I just had our anniversary dinner here and it was FANTASTIC! We had walked by Blue Llama a handful of times and it always looked fun so we finally decided to go for dinner and a show - by far one of the best dates we have ever had! The drinks were delicious and the food was amazing (I am vegan and they were able to cater based off their menu!). We saw Dave McMurray’s Grateful Deadication and we’re almost jumping out of our seats to the music! We can’t wait to go back again for another special night.

Didn’t order any food, bc date wasn’t hungry but i wish the menu had a tab bit more verity. Our waiter Donald was great he’s half the reason I’ll be coming back, dude was cool as hell. You could tell the drinks weren’t regular watered down bar drinks, and they were a fair price.
