Our group of ten had a very nice meal with drinks here. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating. The Mahi Mahi got great reviews. The wine was excellent, however, the pour a bit lite.

The food is exceptional, the ambiance perfect. It’s a little pricey for Kalamazoo, but worth it. Great wine list, daily specials and Fooddance specialties- much if not all of it sourced locally.

If you go during dinner time, plan to wait. The parking is limited, but there is parking across the street and all around town. Kalamazoo is easy to navigate on foot, so don't be afraid to park and walk. You'll need to walk after you...More

Food Dance is committed to building a thriving and sustainable local food system. We support artisans who practice craft food processes that have been around for generations-growing, raising, preserving, curing, aging, pickling, butchering and more. For Food Dance, it's about the connection with the people and places their food comes from-authentic people and authentic food that's true to its source. Serving breakfast, lunch or dinner-guests are served the freshest menu items in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. We offer private dining space for celebrations or larger groups as well as catering and delivery. We host cooking classes and special dinners throughout the year - aimed to introduce guests to new elements of the culinary and agricultural worlds. Our on-site market offers amazing ingredients sourced from their family of purveyors-from sustainable, humanely raised meats, sausages and artisan cheeses to fresh baked bread, pastries and savory baked goods.
